Motivational Artist Trading Coin Mini Album

6/30/22 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!

Hey everybody! Happy Huuuump Day! Hope you’re having a great week! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring more of our Pop Tone cardstock, which I absolutely love. You know how much I love me some ATCs (artist trading cards/coins/cubes)… and I thought it would be fun to make a mini album of motivational double-sided coins! I used several colors of Pop Tone cardstock that I paired with a variety of Doodlebug Design patterned papers for the coins, and various other supplies to embellish them.

I started by punching six artist trading coins from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock using my Fiskars 2-1/2″ circle punch. Next, I punched 12 circles (using the same Fiskars 2-1/2″ circle punch) from Doodlebug Design Hello Spring, Swiss Dot Rainbow Petite Prints, Gingham-Linen Rainbow Petite Prints and Nifty Notions Double-Sided 6×6 Papers. Using several dies and a scalloped circle punch, I cut a variety of shapes from Pop Tone Banana Split, Berrylicious, Blue Raspberry, Cotton Candy, Gumdrop Green and Spearmint cardstock.

I adhered a patterned paper circle and a Pop Tone cardstock shaped element to each side of all six coins. I punched a hole at the top of each coin with my WRMK Crop-A-Dile Big Bite and added a clear hole reinforcement to each. Next, I added 49 and Market botanical laser cuts, Eyelet Outlet pearls or gemstones, and a Tim Holtz Small Talk sentiment sticker to each side of all six coins. The final step was fastening the coins together with a tiny gold ball chain and clasp.

And one more look… totally loving how this project turned out! Would be super adorable pinned to a bulletin board showing a different motivational sentiment every day!

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
