ATC Albums!

On_board_atc_album_1 Check out this great On-Board Artist trading Card Album! You can make one of these cute albums at my upcoming class on March 2. See my Calendar for more details! Not only are these great for Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) but they can be used for so much more! School pictures, senior pictures, little notes and mementos all fit perfectly in this album. Each page protector shows two across so one great use for this album would be to showcase each year of your child’s school photos in the book. If you have two children you could put the photos for a year in each side and then stamp a mini card to put in the middle slot with the year and their grades that year!

If you’re interested in using this book as an ATC holder then let me tell you a little about them! ATC’s are miniature cards 2 ½” x 3 ½”. If you cut your cardstock right you can get 10 per page! You decorate them just like you would a card and, if you did a bunch you could store them in this book and then when you needed to make a card, just pull them out and layer them on your cardstock with a greeting stamped below!  They are called trading cards not only because they are small but also because they are created and traded, or swapped for other cards as a way to share techniques and ideas. If you’d like to learn more about ATC’s I hope you’ll come to my ATC album class where we’ll make a sample ATC for you to start your book with!
