Last Swaps for 2014

I didn't have time to finish up the trick part of this 2014 Pam Colosimo's Treat or Trick Swap earlier. Finally, it's done and the blank parts coloured with markers.  I'm not too good with painting and colouring though.
The folder is 6.5"×5", with 4 cards of size 4"×3" done by Mel Dunkley, Sandy Alsfasser, Shelly Recicar and myself.  Pam also generously enclosed tags she made. 

Here's the close up of my witch cards.

Last but not least, winter button fairies, one for R/Dr Amy (USA).

Love the white snowflake on the wings of this fiery red button fairy Amy did for me.

January ATC Session @Bishan Library

We started off our ATC session in the new year with the making of swing cards. I tried my hands combining it with our theme " New Year".
A type of 3D card, these swing card can be flipped in a single piece.  We tried making them in ATC size. 

I find it amazing how the swing transforms the picture and how it can hide so much details behind it.  One really has to try making it to visualize it.  But not so simple as our participants found out. Well, practice makes perfect, as the saying goes.

I tried doing more of the circle shape and also the square shape.
ATCs swapped with Jessica (house-shaped ATC) and Selina.

And when the swing cards are opened...
The theme for 12 Feb 2015 ATC session is "Valentine Fairy".
