Challenge #184 at Lost Coast Designs, "Fluffy and/or cute". I made a little ATC coin book.

Hi, dont you love this challenge, whell I do.
Cute and fluffy, well these little gnomes are so cute.
 The gnomes are a small version of the large gnomes from Lost Coast designs.

If you like to make ATCs or ATC coins, these are ideal for you.
They are the perfect size for ATC's.
I will explain to you how you can make such a nice ATC coin booklet.
But first, a list of supplies.

The stamps I used:

Other materials I used.
Distress ink.
Crackling campfire
Lucky clover
Peacock feathers
Wilted violet
Musterd seed
Versafine onyx black
Various stencils
Derwent inktense pencils
White gell pen
Acetate sheets
Circle punch and die.

I started making backgrounds.
By applying the ink directly to the stencils and spraying with some water.
Use the stencil as a stamp on your paper.

Look what a quick and fun result this technique gives.

Now punch the number of coins you want to make with a 2.5 inch punch.
My book has 7, because I wanted to make 6 but thought I would have one as a spare.
But I didn't have any mistakes or accidents this time, so I used all 7.

Stamp something on the background of the coins. 
Find something that fits the gnome well.
Stamp the gnomes on thin paper and gleu them on the coins.
The words come from the Misc words sheet.
Very handy to have, there is almost always a word that fits.

Since English is not my language, I find it difficult to explain this.
So I made a drawing with an explanation.
If you don't understand something, feel free to ask me.

Once you have made the page, 
glue an acetated window onto the circle on the inside of the folder.

Do this for every coin you have.

Now for the hinge and cover.
Follow the schedule on the drawing.
For those who have made a mini album before, this is the same way but smaller.
There are many videos on YouTube with clear explanations.
Fold the score lines and stick them with double-sided tape.

Make the cover and gleu the hinge in it.

Now we are going to attach the pockets to the hinge.

We leave the top open.
We stick double-sided tape on the flap at the bottom. 
But leave a cm free of tape on the hinge side.
Apply glue to the hinge and slide the pocket over it.
Press it well.
Now you can put the coin in the pocket.
Decorate the front and back of the cover as you like.
Don't forget to stick a ribbon in between to close the booklet.

I hope you enjoyed it and maybe make an ATC coin book yourself.

Now back to the "Fluffy and Cute" challenge.
This runs until the end of the month.
Maybe you have time to join us.
The team would really like that, and you have a chance to win new rubber stamps.
Don't forget to read the rules to avoid disappointment.
Good luck and see you next time.
