ATC Challenge at Sarah Barber Design

The Beautiful Gems (Sarah Barber Design CT Team) have teamed together to run a bimonthly challenge on Sarah's CT blog using ATC's (artist trading cards). ATC's are adorable little darlings of digital design where you can just let go and create! Sarah has released a gorgeous ATC Mixed Gab v.1 kit at Digiridoo Scraps. It is 20% off until March 6 but if you go over to our CT blog you can find out how to download it for free and also earn a $2.00 coupon to Sarah's store.

Join our challenge which runs until March 15th. Check out the details HERE!

Just in case you don't know what an ATC is (which I didn't but am now IN LOVE with them) here's a definition copied from Sarah's blog.

Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards, or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (6cm X 9cm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc). The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.

These little cuties have become my new digital obsession!

Flirtation and Fidelity is another wonderfully unique kit from Sarah Barber Design. This kit is full of such amazing vintage items and stunning papers. Here are two layouts I made using this beautiful kit.

Thanks to Matt and Emily for letting me use their photos and Matt's beautiful Paris photos!

Here is Flirtation and Fidelity.

Mel Hains from Scrap That Idea also has a new kit out this week. My Funny Valentine is full of doodles and gorgeous papers. It's on sale this week for $4.00 and includes some free wordart.

Be sure to stop by and add My Funny Valentine to your stash!
