December and January Monthly ATC Swap


December--Favorite song with a fold

January--Sunday morning

The window is at the Immaculate Conception  Catholic Church at Palmer Road, PEI, Canada.  I took it from the inside of the church in August.  The church itself is quite different than the depiction on the ATC!!

 January --favorite team

This is Adam McQuaid when he took the Stanley Cup to his hometown, Cornwall, PEI, Canada. I was there in that crowd.

Stickpin Swap

Another partner swap. My partner was Pamela from California. The requirement was 6 stickpins in one or more nice presentations. I chose to do one presentation while Pamela did two, each with 3 pins. The first 2 pictures are the ones Pamela sent to me and the last picture is the snowflake I sent to her.

Large Tag Swap

This was a partner Swap so I made these for two different friends from the Cricut Message Board. Again we had themes. Christmas, Snowman, New Year's, and Angel. We were supposed to personalize them to what our partner liked etc. I made an extra Christmas one for each of them.

 Set one

 Set 2

This is how I fixed the backs with a decorative pocket that could be used for a gift card or just left if tag is used for a tree ornament.

Chunky Charm Swap

Another swap on the Cricut Message Board.  We were to make a chunky charm dangle that had at least 4 charms among the 10 elements attached. Each needed to be on a decorative tag.

 Green with white and gold

 Green and red with white and gold

Red with white and gold

 Blue with white and silver

All four together

Just Another ATC Swap

I hosted a Vintage ATC swap on the Cricut Message Board.
There were two groups --Christmas and Winter. These are the ones I created.

The picture on this one looks like a painting not a badly printed picture!

Monthly ATC Swap--November

Here are the pictures of my November ATCs.

Group 1-- State History
The Marquis de Lafayette who was here with George Washington and the Continental Army during the American Revolution.

Group 2--Winter 
It needed to be sparkly but no stickles. I used glitter paper for background and embellished with glittered snowflakes

September ATCs

These are for JeanP's monthly swap
Group 1 was "A Day at the Beach"  and I added some PEI sand to the picture!!

Group 2 was "A State Symbol"  but not a usual one like flower or bird. I chose to use the ensigna of the RI Reds, a hockey team that is no longer in existence.
