Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re having a good day! I’m excited 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!
This week I finally got around to organizing all the ATCs I’ve been making over the past year and a half (while on an ATC design team) into an album and realized that I might have a slight addiction, lol! I’d love to add a few more to my collection, so I decided to make a variety of both cards and coins for my Ephemoire inspiration project this month. I dug into my personal journal kit stash and printed various papers and accessories from Lavande et Peridot Journal Kit, Whimsical Heart Journal Kit and Vintage Sewing Journal Kit to create these 12 ATCs.
I created these Paris coins with papers and elements from the Lavande et Peridot Journal Kit and embellished them with a gold Posca paint pen. I added some shimmer to the dragonfly with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.
I used elements from the Lavande et Peridot Journal Kit to create these Paris cards, and distressed them with walnut stain distress ink- going from light to medium to heavy distressing.
These Whimsical Heart cards were created with papers and elements from the Whimsical Heart Journal Kit. I distressed these with black soot distress ink and attached the tickets with tiny staples.
The final set of Sewing cards and coin were created with papers and elements from the Vintage Sewing Journal Kit. I collaged these with various sewing elements, and distressed them with black soot distress ink.
One more look at the sets… the papers and elements in these journal kits were so much fun to work with, and it’s always cool to think ‘outside the box’ and create something totally different than the intended use! I see lots and lots more ATCs in my future to add to my collection – they are fun to keep in an album and fun to trade! However, I warn you… I’m not willing to part with a few of them, lol! ;)
