Maya Road boxed ATC cards and new look for my blog!


I picked up a couple of these chipboard boxes from Maya Road a little while back. Each one contains 8 chipboard ATCs joined by a chain, and are all ready to be attacked with inks/stamps/paints, you name it!

I thought I might have to cover them in white paper first, but they take ink really well, and the colours don't suffer too much from the grey/brown background. Hopefully will pick up a couple more in the next few days, as I think they make great gifts once they're decorated! Oh, and this is called April in Canada cos I made it in Canada, in April. But you knew that all the time, didn't ya? :)

I hope you like, click on any image to enlarge it :o)

Regular readers will notice that I decided it was time for a face-lift of my blog. Let me know what you think, after all, it's YOU that reads it! :o)

Love the way you've decorated the box Dan and you're right, this would make an excellent gift! Great stamp choices and love the blocky style of colour on here.

Great look for the blog. I felt mine looked better for a cleaner style. Maybe it's to do with spring clean. Grunge for winter, Clean for spring.

BTW love the ATC box - great art as always
