"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!

Just gorgeous creations! I love both Botanical Tea and Sweet Sentiments collections and can't wait to start creating with them.

Love the Botanical Tea and Sweet Sentiment creations shared today - simply beautiful!

Wonderful!!!

LOVE these newest paper collections! Both projects are so inspiring...and must have taken a long time to create. Well done, design team members! And well done, G45!

Gorgeous projects! I like the ATC cards and wallet so much I want to make them, but I just don't know what I would do with them. :)

What awesome ideas and I love that the ATC went to those who needed some encouragement! What a lovely thing to do!!!!

Beautiful projects! I love the design of the ATC wallet! And what a special gesture from Ann. Loverly!

I love all the projects. Such talented people. Graphic 45 papers are so beautiful that anything you make just turns out so great.

amazing I sure hope she did a video of this would love to see

These are beautiful. I'm going to make several. My family will love them

These projects are amazing! And the paper lines are just incredible as always! I would so love to win this prize package.

We need more people in the world like Anne! We wouldn't have nearly as many problems in this ol' world if there were more generous, unselfed people like her. Thank you, Anne.

Fabulous projects!

Such wonderful creations. The ATC wallet idea could be used for a Christmas advent wallet as well! possibly a 12 days of Christmas as well, mmmmm will have to think about these ideas.
I would love to win this week's prize. Still don't. Elide anyone from UK would win though????

That should read - still don't believe anyone from UK would win - iPad typing is not easy sometimes. Fingers go too fast and keyboard too small.

What amazing projects. The album is so transformed it doesn't look like an easel album. The ATC book is out of this world, of course it is using my favorite line of papers.

Anne - you are an amazing artist with such a warm, giving heart. Hugs to you.

Just too lovely for words. Oh my goodness such great work.

Overwhelmed at the beauty of these projects. Love love the ATC's.
