Scrappin' some LTCs

Toulie LTC

You may all know that I'm not much of a scrapbooker, but here are some examples of using scrapbook ideas and embellishments to create LTCs (letterboxer trading cards). Toulie, above, was for a swap that was specifically themed for scrapbooking. The challenge was to create a scrapbook 'page' in miniature. Finding embellishments to fit and not overpower was definitely a challenge, but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I have to say the ladies at the scrapbook store were quite interested in my teeny-tiny scrapbook project!

Jazzy LTC

These two stamps you may have already seen, but I like how the two cards look together. Again, these are a good example of using scrapbook (or crafty card) layouts for LTCs.

Black Tie LTC

When we first started making LTCs, I decided I needed a special sig-stamp for the backs of my cards and came up with this design (below). I used it for quite a long time...until I got tired of it! Now, I use whatever sig-stamp either fits the theme of the card or whatever strikes me at the time. I have been known to create a sig-stamp simply to fit the theme of the card!

Those are some amazingly tiny musicians, my friend. With bows tightly strung and neatly tied, too! Wow.

You are an impressive sea of ideas -- I don't think you should ever worry about running out of themes for your blog. *smile*
