Have decided to participate in a monthly ATC swap. This month's theme is RED or Faeries/wizards. The ATCs are due by the end of the month so I thought I had better go with easy so I worked with RED.
The background paper is one I made with leftover paint. I used a piece of paper I had been using to protect the surface of my desk when I am stamping and added paint until I was happy with it. Other times I use my leftover paint on a scrap piece of paper and stamp on it later when I decide to use it. Works both ways and gives you neat background paper.
I punched a page of a book to put under the heart. Very cool and yet so easy.
Found this font on my desktop - no idea where I downloaded it from - and decided to install it!! How cool - it makes Dymo tape lettering!! Worked perfectly for these and again so easy. The font is called GF - Ordner - Normal. These were a little on the small side so I cut the top and bottom, added glue to the back then cut them apart to apply them to the ATCs. Worked very well!!

I hope you are enjoying your long weekend! We have wonderful weather and it was just a beautifully warm day!! Loving it!!

Have a creative day!
