Four artist trading cards  vintage hollywood  graphic 45  Alexandra Morein Cover

ATC series - Vintage Hollywood 
By Alexandra Morein

"I have been recently creating quite a lot of the Artist Trading Cards and I think I will never be tired or bored with them. This is a true obsession once you begin. On the limited space you can still arrange as many details as you want.

Graphic 45 papers have always been known for their outstanding variety of characters and the richness of characters, so cutting them out for the ATCs is just perfect.

Today I would like to share 4 of my ATCs, which were created with the “Vintage Hollywood” collection. At one of the pictures below you can see an example of the little size of the cut out flowers which I used, as well as how many pieces (more or less) each one of the cards includes.

Take your favorite Graphic 45 papers out and start to create!!" ~Alexandra Morein

Curio Cabinet 1 Clare Charvill Graphic 45

The Curio Cabinet of Curiosities 
by Clare Charvill
 
"I designed my new Curio Cabinet kit around a cabinet my Grandma kept her antique china in.  Standing just over 13" tall and 4 deep it has full length doors, shaped pediment, shelves and a boxed back that opens. It could be decorated in any style, maybe as a jewelery box but I've used my go to favourite colours red, black and cream from the Olde Curiosity shoppe Collection to alter my sample and then fussy cut out a bunch of the fabulous curios from various 12 x 12 papers to add into the cabinet front. The boxed raised and recessed areas were made from card and added as extras to give some dimension to the space above and below the shelves." ~Clare Charvill

Such great talent! Thanks for sharing

So much talent represented. I love ATC's. I have a friend who is in a club where they trade cards...so fun. I used to belong to an "inchie" club and that was a blast...same thing, smaller scale.

The curio cabinet is fabulous. Another amazing 3D project.

Love the 8x8 papers...perfect for the size cards I typically make.

Great post again....thank you.

Love the curio cabinet

ATC cards are very cool and colorful.

OMGosh...Love the ATC's and that Curio Cabinet ROCK's. Amazing!!!
Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Wonderful project. I would love to create this too. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas.

Great projects!

Clare's Curio Cabinet is so pretty and inspirational! I love the fussy cut butterfly "specimens"! TFS!

Fabulous ATCs and love the curio cabinet.


Great projects. G45 papers sure makes for beautiful projects. The ATC's are beautiful-I am going to give them a try.

Love the curio cabinet, but am wondering where to buy in the US?

Hello from Australia. This kit would be perfect to introduce my 9yo Daughter to the wonderful world of ATCs

Fantastic idea to make a curio cabinet making the perfume bottles 3d. It is great inspiration for my bathroom wall project. I am using those exact bottles in my focal wall project. I also love the 4 ATCs, adding ribbons, strings, and charms add so much to any ATC. Great jobs on these 2 projects.

Wow!!! That Curio Cabinet is amazing. Beautiful. G45 never ceases to amaze me. Thankyou for the inspiration. xx

Beautiful designs. Love the Cabinent of Curiosities!
