I just received beautiful tags from Emily (bird on branch with music notes, From "Madelena" (Potpourri 1 of 3) and from "debtea" (snowman and reindeer with a teabag too)!! Each one is so beautiful, so creative and so unique. I love the three totally different styles. Thanks girls for the beautiful cards and thank you CJ for putting together this fun swap AND for posting all the photos for us to enjoy!

Hugs, Tammy

Emily, your card was beautiful! I loved it! And if it was "wonky" then mine probably were too :)

Well, I have to tell you girls that I laid claim to Tammy's "Amour" ATC (looks great in my bathroom!), one of Patsy's "Burpee" ATCs and Debbie Horn's Good Times/Get-Togethers, etc. with the teeny tiny spoon, rolling pin and other little cute things on it. It says "Spoonful of Love" on the back.
I wanted them ALL but I knew I had to share.
Thanks again!
CJ

Thanks, CJ! I need to find a better adhesive though. Sometimes when I glue, it makes things get kind of curled up.

What types of adhesives do you ladies use when paper crafting?

Well, CJ.....I know it couldn't have been easy, but I'm sure glad you're the one who did the swap because I surely would have kept them ALL! :)

CJ, I'm glad you liked the "Amour" ATC...that was my favorite too! And Emily...what kind of glue are you using? I use double sided tape for the paper and glue dots for the little items.

I was using double sided tape for the longest time, but then I thought there had to be a quicker way (There is a possibility that I over tape though) so I started using glue....I'd have to go down stairs to look, but I think it's some type of scotch glue?? I use a lot of super glue for gluing down the little metal embellishments and such because I have a fear that they will fall off if I use anything else.

I use glue dot runner AND glue stick on all paper surfaces. If I use fabric I brush on Aleene's tacky glue. I sometimes use that for ribbon, rick-rack or lace trims. My adhesive of choice for all embellishments (buttons, brads, bows, flowers, wire, etc., etc. ) is Aleene's 7800 Clear Platinum bond. On all my papercraft projects I do the background layers, as many flat ones as I can and then put them under heavy books and let them press & dry for quite a while. Then I use clamps like clothespins to press embellishments until they dry.
When I use fabric sometimes it can curl however the pressing for extended periods until dry makes all the difference in the world.
Things get "pressed" a lot at my house . . :D

Deb, yours were WAY COOL!! With decorating the backs too and adding the teabags! Love it. I thank you for the extra one and I chose the little "camping" bi-fold and thank you for that. I'll have to post a pic of that one too! Too cute!

Thanks for the advice on the different adhesives, CJ. I'll have to try some of Aleene's products! I've heard they are good, guess I just didn't take the time to look at the different ones. It's good to have feedback so you know what products work well!

This is from a different swap group that Maddie and I are in, but this is a round Valentine "ATC" she sent me. Just too cute to not share here too.

CJ, Love the ATCs the ladies sent you! So cute, and I love the ATC holder that Jill made!

I received my 3 ATC cards today! I got the Valentine card from Jill with the Love bingo board and sweet boy and girl, the queen of diamonds by Sharon Bakke, and potpouri (#1 of 3) by Mary Duffel! I love them all!! I thought getting 1 ATC per swap was fun, but 3?? It's fun to see of the different styles and techniques.

Thank you, ladies, for the beautiful ATCs!

I received my ATC cards a few days ago. I apologize for
the delay in posting. (It has been beyond crazy here.)
I got the dog from Vanessa, (I love dogs, have one and
hope to get another) I also got a burpee seed ATC from
Patsy, so cute and the Hot Chocolate ATC from Deb.
Thank you all very much. I really enjoyed this swap.
Many thanks to you too CJ.
