Valentine ATC Swap & Mini Mail Box

I've been a busy girl!! I wanted to share tons of photos with you of an ATC Valentine's Day swap & pictures of an altered mini box made for an Etsy customer.

Here are the ATCs!

 .you make my heart sing.
This one is made by me. I used music note paper & die-cutted the heart & wings. Then I heat embossed each letter to make the title. :D

.photo op. 
This cute birdcage is the perfect way to display all these ATCs!!

 .group photo.
Here is a great shot of all the ATCs that were traded today. 

 .i love you.
Made by Tracy D. She inked the edges of a Basic Grey print, stamped the title, and die-cutted the mini people. Love the rhinestone gem...

Made by Tracy W. She die-cutted the letters out of velvet paper, added some amazing ribbon & hand pierced the holes for the colored baubles. Foiled paper covers the background. 

 .chocolate love.
This is made by Tina C. She used "chocolate box" paper & layered strips of printed & velvet paper down the side. She added Pearl Pens in brown for extra detail. 

 .you're just my type. 
This one is made by Ellie S. She inked the edges of a newsprint paper, then embellished the card with a die-cutted heart. Adding vintage buttons & glitter to the heart made it perfect. 

 .happy valentine's day.
Made by Joyce P. She made her ATC into a pocket to hold the punched tickets. She added bling, feathers & tulle. She layered the heat embossed title onto nesting scallop circles. 

Now, onto that mini altered mailbox!!

Front View. Glittered "Love" embellishes the stamped image. 

 Personalized with the client's daughter's name! 

 Always add one little extra detail to make it pop!
