ATC Swap with Gecko Galz and artJOYstuff

A blog friend of mine, artJOYstuff, is challenging herself to make an ATC every week and to trade it to the first person who wants it in exchange for an ATC of their own.  I finally was the first comment! (It pays to be in a different time zone and up all night when East Coast people are just getting their day started!)

Check out the post from her blog HERE. I love the layers and the stitching! Gecko Galz has a ton of domino images that would be perfect for an ATC like this! Thanks for the inspiration Kim!

I was making some ATC swaps for a swap at Gecko Galz, so I decided that if I loved how they turned out, I would make another for this trade.  Well, I love how it turned out! We had to make an ATC in our style, and being the librarian nut, I had to use books!  I even printed up a small due date card for the background!


Library Due Date Card - Tortagialla
Arch shape - Tim Holtz die
Vine - Martha Stewart
Images of butterflies, books, child, and sentiment - Gecko Galz
Doily - stash
Distress Ink - Brushed Corduroy
Distress Stain - Faded Jeans
Glitter Glue - Studio G
Vintage Library Catalog Cards - Retro Cafe Art
Perfect Pearls
Seam Binding from Alphastamps and Really Reasonable Ribbon
Glossy Accents
Pop dots

Thanks for looking!



  1. Hi Jess,
