My ATC Holder Design Entry

The Blissfull ATC Swap Site is having a ATC Holder Design Contest. I hemmed and hawed over whether or not I was going to enter this challenge until I ran across this cute, box made to resemble a handbag, at a garage sale on Saturday. It was the perfect size for my ATC's, and I loved the shape of the box. My first thought was to embellish it as a purse, however the more I thought about what it was going to hold, the more I changed my mind. I decided to create a vintage piece of worn luggage. For me the suitcase represented travel, and our ATC's definitely travel all over the country from one swapper to another.
Voting for this challenge starts on September 20th, and only lasts for a few short days. All of the entries can be viewed at the Blissfull ATC Swap Site. After viewing the entries if you would like to vote for mine would you please submit your vote by sending an email to

And more stickers...

Above is a closeup of some of the wear and tear that I created to enhance the aged look of the vintage luggage.

The winner of the ATC Holder Design Contest will have the opportunity, if they wish, to show how they made their entry. For that reason I have held off on sharing the techniques and products I used to create my Vintage Luggage piece.

Please don't forget to vote at, starting on September 20th, for a few short days only. Thanks!

Until Next Time... Take Care!
