I  got 2 fantastic ATC's yesterday :-)
jessiben for secrets (I have covered her secret which was hand written in purple ink on this multi-dimentional chipboard card for privacy's sake... She was the first person to share a secret with me :-D

(and I think that's funny & REALLY unusual, but lots of people have only done the one thing you have not.  I'd say the variety has to have been fun!  It's not sad and I'm sure someday you will check that particular item off your list, although, if I were you, I'd spend a lifetime trying to NEVER check it off!  What a fun fact at parties - haha)

2/1: WideEyedLife to AmandaBL for a surprise (family name) Which is the first of my family members to get a card <3 Thank you - I love it!

93  My 52 Reasons With Box in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by AmandaBL on: January 31, 2011 09:54:31 PM
I save lots of little bits of paper.  When I saw these I knew it was a good way to get rid of some of that stash :-)  I spent $1 on the box from Michael's and $1 on the deck of cards, so this project gets my "bang for the buck" award for sure. If you have some paper scraps & $2 this is an easy and heartfelt Valentines gift.  I was thinking of making one for fathers/mothers/grandparents day from everyone, letting the kids do some of the pages too..... I've only seen these put together with rings, but I went with ribbon to add to the shabby chic feel. I knew the box I was putting it in was tall, so I didn't skimp on the layering and embellishments.

The box. Mod Podge and scrapbook paper. The darker color is walnut distress ink mixed with matte mod podge on a sponge brush.

Interior lid & cover. The key fits the key hole on the front of the box. It's just decorative but i like that it fits <3 

Inside cover & 1st page.  She really does pay attention to what I'm working on, so that's only about 1/2 acting

She loves cupcakes & I love to cook

She works hard supervising remodels & new store set ups for them so the revisions to the logo is apt - she deals with lots & lots of signs....  (and please skip the rant if you hate the company. I understand, really)

I;m really enjoying vellum stickers latley.  They blend so well with almost anything.

I got a wonderful ATC today from Ms. MandyKaye  "written Erotica" she included pages from a poetry book where she got most of the words used in the card from. I have all sorts of ideas for them <3 Thank you so much :-D

knitpurl made me this stunning delicate water color for my theme, day of the dead. it came in a beautiful upcycled envelope and I am going to learn how to make those little guys to use up the catalogs I get and dont need.  I love this one :-) Actually, I loved every single one I got.  Thank you <3

98  Blended Family Holiday Photo Card in Winter Holidays by AmandaBL on: December 11, 2010 06:30:48 PM
I am so pleased with this card. We always have a difficult time getting a picture with my step son in the time frame between Thanksgiving and christmas that is suitable for the christmas cards.  I know we could use a photo from any time in the year, but the kids change so much, I like the pictures to be current.  This year, instead of stressing out trying to coordinate visits, outfits, photographers, moods, lighting & locations (WHEW!) I decided to take my step son's photo myself on Thanksgiving (when we always have him) then we got everyone else when we did the regular xmas photos.  Everyone got a letter to hold for an individual picture, then I made them all black & white, cropped & resized them and printed them myself.  While cutting out 50 sets of those little pictures *IS* a job, I am super happy to have a picture that includes my whole family for the card this year - the first time in 4 years!  I thought this might help some other frazzled step parent out there.
