ATC’s .. Lindy’s, Birds and Postage Stamps

I’ve had a great day of crafting up in the workshop today πŸ™‚ I’ve been up there most of the day, only coming back into the house to hang out the laundry, put another load in and feed the troops πŸ˜‰

Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays featured a lot today, I custom dyed hydrangea flowers and seam binding to match and did about 8 different colour combinations giving me loads of ideas for new cards! Β In fact I made a card for my friends sister who recently went through surgery, but I forgot to take a picture of it.. but those who kept me company on Ustream seen it I used a bird stamp from Crafty Individuals πŸ™‚

Then I took some watercolour paper and sprayed loads of different backgrounds because in theory I wanted to make a Tie Dyed mini album… I will still make it but not with the papers and mini I covered today.. its more for a boy/space/harry potter/sciFi type mini, I’ll take pictures tomorrow and show you what I mean πŸ˜‰

So what to do with all the offcuts of sprayed paper left over from the mini? Β I kept them and made some ATC’s πŸ˜‰

Here they are… a trio of Bird / Lindy Background / Old Postage Stamps / Rubber stamp postmarks..

ATC #1

ATC #2

    1. Hi there Kim.. thanks so much for the lovely comment πŸ™‚

      I seem to have been incorporating birds in my projects a lot lately, wonder if the hidden inspiration is coming from all the birds singing outside the workshop lately πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for the lovely comments Elizabeth, it was a busy day today.. hope you had fun visiting the family πŸ™‚

      p.s. yes changed the “look” of the blog, i’m still getting used to it, I fancied a bit of a pring clean πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Sarah – Love your ATCs. I’m hosting a postcard swap on Life on the {Scrap} Beach & someone referred to the postcards as big ATCs. I can see your sweet images used for a postcard, too. Do you have a regular UStream time? I try to check periodically but have only found you “live” once … Thanks for sharing with us ~

    1. Hi there Kim.. thanks so much for the lovely comment, glad you like the ATC’s, I do like to use up all the scraps when I’m done with a project.

      Ustreams tend to be a bit irregular, I normally just switch it on when i’m in the workshop and craft away, and crafty friends pop in for a wee chat.. times, well weekdays after 7pm GMT and weekends anywhere from 11am to 11pm lol it depends who else is streaming at the time, if there is another show on I wont switch my camera on, i’ll pop round to theirs for a chat… hope this helps πŸ™‚

      Good luck with your postcard swap, it sounds like a lot of fun πŸ™‚

  2. Wow Sarah, you’ve been so busy today! I’ve been so busy watching everyone I’m fast running out of time before I return to work!!
    I love these ATC’s – we’ll have to do a swap sometime :).
    Your blog is looking really good too, very easy on the eye!

    Much love,
    Helen x

    1. Thanks Helen… I did have a great day of crafting up in the workshop today πŸ™‚ made loads of things.
