Time for a Fat Page

Happy Wednesday

Today over at Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog it is week 4 of the challenge ATC or Fat Page.

An ATC is a miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3½ inch or 64 X 89 mm card stock. They are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced, anybody can produce them. The idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards, either at TRADING SESSIONS or wherever you meet another ATC trader in person.

A Fat Page is is a 4 x 4 inch card basically filled with as many goodies as you can fit to make it "fat" and pretty! You can do any theme, colour, or format you like.

This is my very first Fat Page:


The sweet images both behind the window and in front are from our sponsors


The images are Gerbera Daisy in a Jar and Cosmos.
The Die cut window is Spellbinders Die-delights window one, and the corners are Lala Land Filigree Corner.

ATC or Fat Page?

Happy Wednesday

Today I have my first ever ATC to share with you. Over at the Crafters Cafe there is a wonderful challenge, the theme is an ATC or Fat Page. 

An ATC is a miniature works of art created on 2 ½ X 3½ inch or 64 X 89 mm card stock. They are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced, anybody can produce them. The idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards, either at TRADING SESSIONS or wherever you meet another ATC trader in person.

A Fat Page is is a 4 x 4 inch card basically filled with as many goodies as you can fit to make it "fat" and pretty! You can do any theme, colour, or format you like.

Here is my ATC

The image, called "Little Shack" is from our sponsors 


You can see lots of inspiring creations from the Design Team HERE

So what about a fat page? I will have a Fat Page creation for you in a couple of weeks, so you can see my interpretation then.

If you have never made an ATC or Fat Page, as I had not until this challenge then it is well worth a go, or if you are a seasoned producer of either of these formats, then why not enter the challenge. I would just love to see your creations, and don't forget there is always a chance of winning a lovely prize!
