Details of swap:

Let’s get spooky! Inspired by a swap on Retro Cafe Art, I thought it would be fun to have a Tombstone ATC swap. Your tombstone can be a collage, 2D or 3D. Need some inspiration? Check out these awesome tombstone ATC on Pinterest.

You will need to craft at least one ATC. You can have multiple partners if you wish (please indicate how many partners you want on the questionnaire). If you need a template, I will post one here for you. Also, remember that since we are sending ATC, it may get lost in the mail so please be prepared that if your partner does not receive, you may need to make it over and send again.

LettuceCraft username:

I hope to play along at home @kittykill … would you mind sharing the link to the template? Does the outermost edges measure ATC size with parts cut out, or do the extra features extend beyond the regular ATC size?

Mulling this. I’m more of an ATC person than a Halloween person, so I have some nerves about potentially crafting for Halloween lovers (on top of my generalized swap anxiety, lol). BUT I love this idea.


Sent in my questionnaire. I don’t do a ton of paper crafting but have all the supplies so Halloween is the perfect reason to finally use them


@PrincessP I will definitely share it with ya. I need to find a good one before sign ups end.

A tombstone is automatically Halloweeny, so you’ll be most of the way there!

Ok, yeah, gotta give this one a go! :grin:

Well, I’ve taken the plunge and sent in my q :grimacing:.

Wait, I guess I should get used to using Halloween emojis…
:jack_o_lantern: :coffin: :headstone:

I suddenly became very aware that the signups are ending soon, so I proactively made some purchases from AlphaStamps including several downloadable collage sheets. I’ll be putting those on a usb and taking them elsewhere to be printed well. My current home printer is only good for small things or text. I think it secretly hates me and runs the ink out when not in use.

joanns has these laser cut wood tombstones that are just a little bigger than an atc, but I think it’ll be easy enough to chop off some of the bottom part to make them atc sized. a bit bulkier than I had planned for but I think they will be fun to do.
