"Made this wallet ATC card holder for  Graphic 45 CHA winter 2014. Made with the gorgeous Sweet Sentiments paper collection! So much fun fussy cutting the images and most of  the images on the ATC`s are pop up with pop dots ( 3D foam) and covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte. Never made ATCs before and I started out using up my fussy cut left overs but this was so much fun so I could not stop making them, lol. Then I found out I needed something to store them in and came up with this wallet book. The pages are expandable So the dimensional ATC will fit. Saved the frames when I cut out the images and used some of them here on this ATC`s. Here is the front of the wallet book. Alphabet die from Accucutcraft. It measure 9 1/2 x 4 1/8. " -Anne

Here is another wonderful treat that came with this amazing ATC box when we brought it with us to CHA! Anne included this note in her ATC wallet she sent for our CHA Winter display. We did just as she asked, we passed each and every ATC out, each bringing a smile and joy to every recipient! So sweet!

These projects are just amazing. I love the colors and papers. Well done!!!

They are all so beautiful, and so generous of Ann. Thanks for sharing with us.

I am "in LOve" with the ATC wallet, Wow!! it is so beautiful. Graphic 45 is always coming up with more beautiful papers every time we catch our breath. thanks.

Every day I think, Can anything top this? Then comes the next day's offerings and they are even better. TFS such beautiful projects made with your lovely papers.

OMG! These are all so gorgeous but Rhea's album is divine!!! Would be over the moon if you could convince her to do a tutorial! I am puzzled about whether the album is inside a box or if the album is actually attached to the box. Either way it is awesome and my mind is racing trying to figure out how to make a box with and album attached to it!!! TUTOTRIAL, TUTORIAL, TUTORIAL PLEASE!!!!

absolutely gorgeous. Anne is so very generous.

Oh my!... Words fail me! It's all so gorgeous and inspiring.

Love all the projects, just beautiful!

the blog is on fire today! So many gorgeous ideas!

These are amazing. The album is beautiful. And what can I say about the atc wallet and the ATC's inside? Wow! Stunning! The attention to detail!

I love todays projects!!!

Beautiful projects. These papers just make you smile..they are so sweet.

Beautiful projects

Just love today's projects! The details in Anne's ATC cards is just incredible...what a generous person she is!
Hugs,

WOW I really love what you have to share us today. Would love to win your paper kit.

Waking up to -30F is a challenge until I see your lovely Sweet Sentiments inspiration. Thank you

Again absolutely gorgeous pieces of work and how wonderful of Anne to distribute her ATC cards. Certainly would have put a smile on my face:)

I JUST love the projects today the ATC piece is soooo unique. Thank you designers.

So beautiful. And it was so very nice and kind of you and the talented designer to give the atc's and the album away. Very inspiring. Michelle t

Clever and beautiful ATC wallet and the cards are outstanding!

Wow! Each project is absolutely beautiful! LOVE Anne's Atc holder, wonderful idea! So sweet of her to share her beautiful work with others.

Really makes me think of Spring. What's not to love about the beautiful Valentines!

Anne's thoughtfulness and caring for others is so touching and her work is so outstanding. Thank you for the touch of spring for my dreary and dark winter morning!

I am in love with your papers and embelishments and so wish that you sold them directly to consumers on line. There is no store in my area. I am one frustrated paper lust-er.

Today's projects make me think of Spring, which for those of us in the deep freeze are looking forward to! Beautiful projects today!

All beautiful projects but I love the ATC wallet. If only there were more time. I could make nothing but G45 projects the rest of my life.

Beautiful projects from Rhea & Anne, How I wish I'd been able to get to CHA & be lucky enough to land one of Anne's ATC creations. As always, thanks for the inspiration ladies!

Stunning creations! How kind and generous of Anne to give away her lovely ATCs.

Adore this paper!!

All of the projects are stunning. Your design team amazes me.

How thoughtful of Anne to write that lovely note. Wonderful creative projects!!

Love the atc's. That was so sweet of Anne to share them like that. Wish I had been the last one.

Oh, just the breath of spring we needed on such a cold below zero day! So beautiful!!!! And how lovely of Anne to share - I'm sure her creations brought many happy smiles.

The Botanical album is just gorgeous! I am going to try and make it, too!!

Love them! The ATC's are sweetly done!

Beautiful projects! And love the caring thought Anne sent with her project!
