After I started my first ATC, I actually started (and finished!) 4 others for a different swap so I wanted to showcase them too.
I'm really very green with all this although I really like the small format (ATCs are standard 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches).
This was another swap on swap-bot.com, the theme: "Personalized ATC" sent to one partner, so I was tasked with checking my partner's profile and creating an ATC based on what I learned there!
I know I said that I did 4 ATCs for a swap of 1 ATC... well, my partner has three children and she went into great detail about them and what they like too so, I created one for my partner and one each for her children as well.
You see, on swap-bot, you can get 'hearts' for sending an especially nice package to your partner. Since my partner was very involved with her children, I figured I would do one each for them all!
I really used mostly already created things [i did cut some paper & chipboard! ;] - bling, transfers, diecuts, etc. I assembled them in a pleasing fashion and kept true to the preferences I read about on my partners profile.
Here they are:
This is the one I made for my partner
These are the ones I made for my partners children!
They are kind of 'monogrammed' with a letter for their first names each...
I decided that I'd go with a little less work on each because there were 4 and I was a little shorter on time. Each swap is given a time limit by the swap creator.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my first 5 ATCs! I'm just getting my feet wet and I did a whole bunch of research to learn about this format so perhaps I'll go into some of the other techniques I learned about. These 5 are essentially one-offs.
You can do a series, create a large work then pull out particular detailed portions of that work, I may have missed one or two methods... I'm sure I'll be doing more so Stay Tuned!
