~Calling Card (ATC) Mini Album

When I got back from Mania 2014 in September, I stuffed all of the calling cards
I received into a ziploc bag so I wouldn't lose any.  I decided that I really needed a
way to showcase them and have them easily accessible so I could pull them out
and look at them.  They are AMAZING little pieces of artwork!  Anyway, I started
with a vertical paper bag mini album (you can find a tutorial starting here at My Sisters Scrapper).
I went with a Halloween themed mini since Mania was Fall/Halloween themed.  I think
that made it come together much more quickly and ALSO put a BIG dent into my
Halloween paper stash.  Double bonus!

Then I designed both a vertical and horizontal waterfall to hold four ATCs each that
I placed on the OUTSIDE pages.  The INSIDE pages were reserved for the flat stuff
like pictures.  There are also some non 3x3 goodies I got and I put those on the oversized
tags that fit into the paper bags.  I even saved my place setting and Name badge!  I did
learn one lesson though.  Next time, instead of making the pages 3/8" apart, go with 5/8"
for calling cards.  Some of those little buggers have alot of dimension!  This book is stuffed!

So without further ado, here are all the pics.  And now maybe I can figure out what to do
with my 2012 Mania calling cards????


  1. This is absolutely awesome love,love,love it. ;)

  2. Francine,

  3. Wonderful! Just perfect and clever!

  4. I see mine! I see mine! Love your book. Such a good idea to keep those calling cards in their own place.


I treasure each comment. Thank you for taking the time to leave me some love!
