OKAY I am not sure if this has been done before or not but i started creating one when i was creating a match box mini album...Also tring to figure out what do do with the lovely ATC i have been collecting SO I came up with this...LETs turn our ATC into a mini album... FOR this swap you will create your own any theme (keep in mind other peoples feeling on religion ect when deciding the theme, checking profile could help) ATC MINI ALBUM... YOUR album should include about six pages all decorated and awaiting the pictures to be added...The front of the album will be decorated as your atc the 6 pages to follow will either bee binded to somehow or fold out but there should be atleast 6 and ready for pictures.... ITs new to me too but if you have any questions please feel free to PM me.. HAPPY CRAFTING.. Keep Sendin Smiles.... PS i had so much fun making it i am going to make it for 2 partners so you will have to make 2 mini albums to send and one for yourself................

Same here :S Are we supposed to make an album for ATCs or an ATC-sized album?

user2637 10/26/2010 #

I think it's supposed to be like this domino book but with an ATC for the cover/back, instead of dominoes? And the "pages" are supposed to be blank?

Dakini55 10/26/2010 #

Oh I get it....yea that makes sense thanks user2637!

user2637 10/27/2010 #

Well, I'm not sure if that's correct!! @metammi123 help?

ok, I get the "idea" of the ATC album:

1)The "cover" ATC; we create, our Theme(can be our own but check profiles. I take it the Theme is then carried through-out additional "pages".

2)Not counting the "cover"...we "add" 6 more decorated ATC-size decorated cards; but leave the "space" needed for partner to add THEIR pictures.

3)We bind all 7 pages together by whatever means; pages can be stitched, bracketed, rivets & jump rings, rivets & ribbon, etc.,or create an "accordion-type" connection like the example in the link @user2637 so kindly provided for us. (Thanks @user2637

4)We make two "albums" to send for this swap and a third one to keep for ourselves.

5)Don't forget to put name of swap and user ID on the BACK of the last "page".

@metammi123 ..did I interpret this correctly?

Questions for this album:

How "heavily"decorated must the album "pages" be? In other words, can the following pages just be simply decorated with just a sheet of interesting paper for example...or does it have to be the paper and some kind of stickers or buttons, etc?

this is one of the coolest ideas Ive heard lately.. glad to be a part of it.. they could be filled for great christmas gift......

metammi123 10/28/2010 #

SORRY ladies I have been very busy and have not checked back to see the discusion board ...BUT YES @Bastet59 has it dead on ....and @user2637 is also on the right track....

AS for the following pages i was thinking just not to heavely decorated as for the preson recieving could use the space to put on the own pictures on the inside and have a very nice album...so i geuss in short the inside to look just like a scrapbooking page with maybe a matte for a picture a sticker a paper percing ect I think it would be better if the inside pages were kinda flatley(if thats a word) imbellised so the book would close ...BUT completely up to the creator...and the out side the cover to be the ATC so what ever goes there...

I am also sorry since I myself am still workingon this and just created my first the day i posted the swap I dont have any pictures as of yet SORRY i was just so excieted to share my thouhgt...I figured i was not the only one that wanted to do more with the lovely ATC.....

The ones i have created so far all seem to be accordin style ..I did make one where i glued the 2 pages of accordian together which then binded the pages like a book....

metammi123 10/28/2010 #

I should also add that @basket59 also has some great ideas for binding THANK YOU @besket59
