This swap is hosted by my good friend Frieda Oxenham, on the ATCs for ALL site. When I saw that Frieda was hosting this swap via a post on her blog I wrote her immediately even though I was on vacation in Florida! Could I join? Yes, there was room, and so I quickly produced 4 cards - 1 for the swap and 1 as a hostess gift for her. Frieda's are infinitely more romantic than mine . . . . but, I had fun creating mine and hope they are well received. I would call my ATCs for this swap "Modern Vintage Romance" because while they use romantic vintage fabric images from the Alpha Stamps "Kisses" sheet, the background fabrics are decidedly modern!
These ATCs began as one piece that I fused together with timetex interfacing in the middle and cut apart into 4 ATCs. I did this while taking a workshop with Elin Waterston - more on that later! After cutting out the 2.5 x 3.5 pieces, I added the Romantic fabric images from Alpha Stamps and stitched away to my heart's content on each one.
