Vintage Mugshot ATCs

Hiya, peeps! I hope you’re having a good day! I’m super stoked to share my Ephemoire inspiration project with you this morning. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to head over to the Ephemoire Etsy Shop to check out all the amazing digital printables… there are collage sheets, digital papers, journal kits, clip art and mixed media printables, and the print quality is awesome!

I just acquired the Vintage Mugshots printables for my stash and I’m so in love with them! I laughed literally the entire time I was creating this massive set of ATCs for my collection! The offenses include larceny, indecent exposure, false pretenses and thief, lol! Hope none of these offenders are distant relatives! Bahahahaha!


I printed the mugshots on 60# Hammermill copy paper, cut them apart and distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink. I cut the cards from 100# kraft cardstock and distressed the edges with the walnut stain distress ink before adhering the mugshots to them. No embellishments. Super easy. Here are shots of each card:


Aren’t these an absolute hoot?! I’m so happy with how they turned out and they look amazing in my ATC notebook! I don’t think I’ll trade any of these, lol!

I’d love to enter these ATCs into the following challenges:
Creative Moments: #189 – Anything Goes

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Bad times in North Shields back then. My father was one of 13, his father struggled to earn a living when he left the army. My father, his brothers and sisters told me some tales of those times. Totally dependant on the coal mines for work ……..
