I had a brilliant brainstorm the other day: I’ve made matchbook greeting cards and matchbook picture albums before, why not make a matchbook ATC? This can’t be too hard, right? Right! All it takes is a little measuring to get the folds just so, and then we’re off and running. Currently, I’m going through a postoid phase, a bird phase and a color phase simultaneously, so I found a way to combine the three in these charming matchbooks made from the textured Bazzill cardstock. Don’t you just love it? It comes in so many wonderful colors. If you’d like to try this matchbook thing, join me at ATC Night, Thursday, June 17, at Stampin’ From the Heart, 6:30-8 p.m., $10 for demonstration and two cards. All materials supplied by me, Los Angeles-based paper artist Jessica Hollowell. Call (310) 491-0466 for directions to the store. (You may want to bring your favorite ruler and a bone folder–I’ll have some on hand, too).
Also, if you want to trade cards don’t forget to bring at least 10 Artist Trading Cards of your own design. As the group grows, we need to make a few more cards so everyone who trades gets one, in addition to one for me and one for the store’s ATC Collection book.) Theme of your choice. See you there!
