ATC albums!

A while back I made a few tiny ATC albums from sample-size cereal boxes and they were very popular and sold out fast. Since then I've been hoarding (see top pic) every kind of pasteboard that comes through the house that I think has fun artwork on it. Today I actually started working on a full-size cereal box to see what I could fit in it. Turns out I can cut it down a bit and fit two down and two across, perfect for a 12x12 piece of cardstock. Well, I have to cut the top off, but the long dimension is easy. And it looks like I can fit 8-9 signatures into the album, so that will mean over 100 ATC's can be stored in it. Pretty cool! This Count Chocula one will take some time to finish, but he'll look so cool when he's done. I mean, who wants a boring 3-ring binder when you can have a Count Chocula album??

Oh, Carrie! Carrie carrie carrie.

Carrie? You know how I love halloween..?

Here's the deal: I am loving me the ATC album you made for me. It holds a place of honor in the living room next to the mini mail box you made for me to keep stuff in! And the coasters you quilted for me!

Now that I think about it, it's been an awfully long time since you made me something.
