And what better time for make some rockin’ Summer Themed ATCs! Yes, that is the next theme for the Jacksonbelle Embellishment ATC SWAP! Now summer can mean so many things to different folks, so pretty much the sky is the limit. Whether it is the beach, camping, yummy picnic food, or relaxing with a cold fruity beverage, the possibilities are endless. Are you going somewhere interesting for vacation? Well, let the rest of us unfortunate souls live vicariously through your travels. With this SWAP, the goal is for each participant to share a little bit about themselves and what “summer” means to them! So what are the deets:

1. Sign-up for this SWAP between now and July 13th. You may leave a comment on this post or e-mail me at We will sign up in groups of 10 with each participant making 11 ATCs to SWAP (one will go to Ms. Lindsey our wonderful JBE sponsor.) We will do as many groups of 10 as there is interest.

2. SWAPs must be of quality materials (CS in the range of SU, Prism, Bazzill, PTI etc.) and be at least 2 layers with at least 1 embellishment. There are no vendor specifics on supplies but I’m sure Lindsey would love to see some of her awesome wares put to use! Please add your name and the date on the back of your beautiful creations. If you would like you can # your ATCs, as well- as in, 1 of 11, 2 of 11, etc.

3. When you are finished with your SWAPs, placed them in a zip-lock bag with your name and “JBE Summer Themed ATC SWAPs.” Place the baggie w/ ATCs along with a SASE in another envelope and mail the package to:

Beth Thomas

114 Meghan Lane

Madison, AL 35758

4. All SWAPs must be postmarked no later than August 11th.

5. Once we have our first group of 10, I have some SWAP games with prizes to announce!

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Can’t wait to see what summery goodies everyone has to share!

Hello, All and a big TGIF!  Just wanted to let everyone know that the final set of ATCs from our SWAP arrived today, safe & sound!  I have realized the perk of being hostess- I get to see all of the beautiful ATCs first!!!!  The quality and creativity present on these little cards is incredible.  So now, that I have teased you, I do have to admit that it will be Tuesday (maybe Monday) before I can get these divided out and to the post office.  This weekend is just too busy!  Be sure to look for a little surprise in you package from the super sweet Jacksonbelle herself!  Thanks, Lindsey!  Also, we have the next ATC SWAP planned and I will hopefully post those details this weekend.  As a little hint the theme for these will be Summer!!!!!  Hope everyone has a super weekend!

Take care,

Hello!! I got a phone call this weekend asking if I’d be interested in trying out some shimmery paint!! Well meanings that it is shimmery, of COURSE I wanted to! 🙂 It is FANTASTIC!! They are called Shimmerz and they are local here in Idaho! They are ready to use, just dip your paint brush in and go! They work on EVERY type of cardstock, acetate..anything you decide to use! I was VERY impressed by how quickly they dried too! (course…a little help from an embossing gun never hurt! 😉 )

Here is a picture of the actual lil’ bottles. 



Here is a sheet of all the different colors that they carry!



And HERE is a picture of a close up of I card that I have posted on MY BLOG today, so you can see what it looks like in action! 🙂 (OH, and that’s the new Basic Grey EUPHORIA paper! YAY!)


I just colored the image as I would normally do (these days that means Copic’s) then I painted right over it! Took about 2 seconds! I distressed all the edges of my card too. I took the watercolor brush to that too, it’s a sparkly little thing and I love it!

I will be ordereing these in the next few days and I will be the FIRST one to carry them!! WAHOOO!! That is so cool! I’d love your input! What do you think so far about them? There is also a new Shimmerz blog that can be found HERE! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
