New Year - New Start

Happy New Year to you all.

I plan to use my time better this year making more and surfing less. Watch this space to see if I keep it up or not!

To get me off to a good start I have been making swaps for the groups I am in and they have been going well BUT I can't really upload those until partners etc are sorted so they are scheduled for later in the month.

I can show a couple of ATCs though that have already been swapped out ...

This one is for the theme 'Fabric and Fibres' and I found this really difficult - not sure why - but my head just wasn't 'there' so in the end I used fabric background, piled a load of threads on top of it and covered with tulle - I then stitched a grid pattern over the top and finished with a dictionary paper embellishment and a charm.

This one was for the theme 'rust'. I already had some fabric which I had rust dyed so I added some stamping to it and some foiling using 'Hot Spots' glue from Nid-Noi - I then embellished with a swirl die cut, butterfly die cuts and punches and some seed beads.


  1. They both look great, Jacqui! I recently made my first ATC and I know I'll be making more...they're so fun!...Nancy :o)

  2. Gorgeous ATCs. Thanks for sharing and happy New Year to you.

  3. ooh these are both gorgeous! They look so tactile, especially the first one. I need to do more making too - haven't managed it yet though! Must get started. Happy New Year to you and your family xx
