Hi Ladies!!

Welcome to our ATC Birthday Bash Challenge! My name is Linda and I will be your host for the first half of this challenge - running September 1st thru the 15th... :)

For the first half of this challenge you will be asked to create an ATC using a Fall Theme

I simply love Fall and I just can't wait for it to get here! :)

We thought we would switch things up a bit so, beginning the 16th of September
Julie will be your host and she will let you know what you will need to do
as the time draws near. :)

So, even if you have created your ATC for this Fall Theme...
don't forget to check back on the 16th
to see what goody Julie has for you!!

Here are your GUIDELINES

Size should be 2.5 x 3.5 inch / 64 x 89 mm

Please use a kit from one of our designers here at the Studio Store.
It can be a new one or one you already have in your stash.

After completing your Card please post a preview in our gallery located HERE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1299-atc-challenge.html)

Once you have posted your ATC in the gallery.. please come back to this thread and post a link
so that we can all ooohh and ahhhh over your wonderful creation!

Here is my first ATC! :)


Everyone who creates an ATC and posts their link here in this thread
will receive a little posting gift from Julie and me. :)

Sooo... let's get started ladies...
ATC's should be posted by September 29th to qualify for the gift!

Happy Scrapping!!!

This has finally risen to the top of my never-ending to-do list! Love making ATC's, thanks for the challenge!


09-13-2011, 01:54 PM
Great ATC Ann... thanks for playing along and for sharing your beautiful creation! :)

09-15-2011, 01:09 PM
I used JanetB's Indian Summer kit. Thanks, Love the kit. I layered the papers and elements several times and then played around with the properties on all layers. quote is mine. This was fun, Thanks.

Here is mine:



09-15-2011, 06:36 PM
Can we make more than one???

09-16-2011, 07:44 AM
Here is mine. I think I put it the wrong way :o
I took the measurements and applied them to the wrong sides......


09-16-2011, 11:12 AM
Beautiful ATCs Rose and Pauli... thanks for sharing!

You may make as many as you like Joy... the more the merrier! :)

09-19-2011, 06:00 AM
OK ladies, for my part of the challenge.......seeing it's the studios Birthday, how about doing a card based on that.
Linda and I will have a prize for all those that take part. For anyone who needs a template I have one here

09-20-2011, 09:48 AM
each month that we do an ATC challenge, we put them into a swap. Angel has it set up to swap them right from the forum. Only the ones that want to trade are in the swap. Being able to trade the trading cards is great. Will we be able to do the same with these? I just love being able to get the other cards. Thanks

09-20-2011, 10:36 AM
Swapping would be fun. What do you do with them? Do you print them for a collection?

09-20-2011, 12:09 PM

There's no "wrong" when it comes to ATC's. The only thing that HAS to be is the size. Portrait or landscape - that's up to you!:))

ATCs come in all kinds of mediums. I trade with some painters too. I put them into, what else, a scrapbook. But, you can buy books made just for them. I have one for the painted cards and one for digital ones. I print them and cut them out, then add a tag with details. On the tag I print the name of the artist, date it was given, and any thing else I feel is relevant. It is so much fun to go back and see all of the cards. I hope we can trade these too. They are all so great.

09-21-2011, 11:32 PM
That sounds like a lot of fun!! What has to happen in order to trade them? I have never even tried to print from the site. Sounds like the most fun is to actually recieve them from one another by, of course, trading :) I agree these are great and I would love to save them as you describe! I am a collector at heart.

09-22-2011, 05:43 PM
Is the new card a general birthday ATC card or something that has to do with the studio birthday bash?

09-25-2011, 12:14 PM
Still not sure about the card. General birthday or specific to The Studio's BD?

09-25-2011, 11:58 PM
Ok, here is my Birthday ATC. It is a flowery card with a birthday sentiment rather than birthday themed elements. If I have time I'm thinking I will try another and see what develops.


09-27-2011, 10:43 AM
Here is mine:



09-28-2011, 07:28 PM
Here are my 2 cards for this challenge. I am not sure why mine are so much smaller.

Hey Ladies.... I do not know how to set this up to share from the forum... this challenge is totally new to me.. LoL!

However, if you would like to email me your full sized cards I will zip them, upload them to Media Fire, and place the link here for you to download.. :)

PM (message) me if you are interested and I will send you my email and you can send me your full sized card to share. :)

09-30-2011, 09:07 AM
Thank you for checking into this for us. I will PM you now. Rose

09-30-2011, 12:58 PM
Hmmm... it seems some are not able to email their cards to me due to file sized restrictions with their email programs... soooo.... if you wouldn't mind uploading your cards to an outside source like MediaFire or 4Shared and send me the link... I will download them all and bundle them up for everyone. Then I will upload the bundled cards to MediaFire and send the link to each of you who would like them... :)

09-30-2011, 07:35 PM
Sorry I didn't get to this. There were so many fun possibilities this month!
