A new month… a new kit!
A really dramatic kit this month. Bold colours and a bit of a vintage vibe.
That’s not to say I didn’t make it even more vintage.
I’ve not started with a layout this time, (although I have started one). I’ve made a little ATC folder with pockets inside for storing a little set of ATCs to match the theme.
I love making and collecting ATCs but I only like the authentic trading card format as the rules for trading cards (including artist trading cards) are pretty specific. They “must” fit in the trading card collectors pouches as they are trading cards. And as I collect mine in proper trading card pouches and folders, then I can not fit big chunky things in.
I fully approve of folks experimenting and doing their own thing. Rules are for breaking when it comes to creativity. But, for me, I want actual trading cards. Just like the Pokemon cards or baseball cards etc etc.
So my ATCs all fit nicely into my little folder. I’ve not filled all the pockets yet. I left some space for swaps.
So if any of you UK Scrapaholix people fancy doing an ATC using this months kit and would like to do a trade, I’d love to add your cards to my little “graphic 45 ‘elegance’” themed set and put them in my little folder.
