ATC holder

    I love ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) but I can never figure out what to do with the ones I really like. I wanted to show them off so I asked around to see what other people do & after the brainstorm I got an idea of what I wanted, now to find it...a few days later in my alley someone had thrown out a torn up baby gate, Perfect! So I got it (yes I am a trash digger lol) took a while but got the piece out of it that I wanted and voila!
    It is a little rough but it is exactly what I wanted. I am close to the end of a remodel of my scrap room so I will no doubt clean this up & decorate it so I can add all my favorite ATC's that I have recieved.

Altered mousetraps

These are mousetraps that I altered for a swap. They were a challenge but a lot of fun! I chose to do mine in a shabby chic style. I used Tim Holtz distress inks, crackle paint & distress stains. I added lace, pearls, buttons & Prima flowers. You can get the mousetraps for cheap, I got these at Big Lots I think it was $2 for 4. I am going to make the other 2 with magnets on the back & put paper in the trap part for lists & reminders.
