PCA / FSBC Mother's Day ATC Swap 2013

Philippine Crafters Association and Filipino Scrap Bookers Club just recently hosted an ATC Swap. Here are my ATC's.

I made dahlia flowers using paper cut outs (tutorial coming soon).

To newbies like me, here is a definition from Wikipedia on what an Artist Trading Card (ATC) is:

Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 212 by 312inches (64 mm × 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.

I hope you liked my ATC's and as usual, I am open to critiques and suggestions. -Marie

Jennifer McGuire Tips on Storing Clear and Cling Stamps

Jennifer is one of the people I admire when it comes to stamping and other card making techniques. I am a newbie and knows only how to appreciate stamps once they are made. Confession there. But I really wanted to learn how to use them, appropriately. :) And I am also planning to enroll in Jennifer's online classes. You can check her blog to find out more.

Anyway, HERE she shares how she stores her clear and cling stamps. Oh, I wish I had a lot of stamps like her! ;)

Silhouette Portrait and MTC, finally!

I have always wanted to get the Cameo because I think it is a super amazing machine. The print-and-cut feature is awesome and not to mention the cartridge free advantage.

However, I was not able to get a Cameo for myself so I ended getting the Portrait (which is on its way, by the way). I have never realized that MTC haven't tried the software with the Portrait yet. So I was, OMG! No no no!

I sent an email to them and they were so accommodating.

And my prayers were finally answered. MTC just released a new version of Silhouette Plugin and it is now compatible with the Portrait! How good is that! Plus, a new feature is added.

You can read Andy's post here.

You can read more about Make the Cut here. And, purchase one here.
