Some Stuff and a Mess

So, I have been working on ATCs, inchies, and some altered things this past weekend. First off, these ATCs are for a heritage swap over at Split Coast. We had the make a heritage ATC for each person in our group(s) according to the heritage they gave us. I went and signed up for 3 groups, and got overwhelmed very quickly. Luckily, we could make multiples of the same one for different people. I made 35 total-of course had to make an extra of each one for myself, lol! I decided to go with the flags of their country's heritage.
I used Wassau cs for the base, then Bazzill for everything else, shapes are drawn and cut with Silhouette, used rhinestones, and put the 2x3 flags on Technique Tuesday Technique Tiles.
For an embellishment swap over at Swap Addicts Anonymous using DCWV Doodlin' Around the Page, I needed to make journal spots.
I used the actual paper from the stack on everything, except the lined paper on the monster one, that is Scenic Route.
This one I used a Technique Tuesday stamp.

I also threw in a couple border strips. This one is 8 inches and used SU Scallop border punch.
This one is 6 inches long and used Fiskars Apron Lace border punch.
I designed some inchies for an All Holidays Inchie swap at SAA. I have only made one of each so far, but have everything cut and stamped. All I need to do now is decorate and put together the others. I signed up for all of them, of course, lol!! There is New Years, Valentine's, St Patty's, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthday, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter-13 total.
With that swap, and the other 4 ATCs I have designed/cut/bagged, I now have 5 projects to take with me to Laura's this weekend to work on. I even wrote what supplies I need on the bags, so I only take what I need.
This is the mess after designing the inchies! I used scraps for all of it!! Luckily this is now cleaned up!
Now I need to start some DT stuff and some challenges.
Don't forget about the Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop, THIS WEEKEND!! It will be tons of fun, and I will be having a prize as well, so be sure to check it out!
