Artist Trading Cards (the club)

I thought I would create this blog as a way of showing a selection of the fantastic ATC's I receive to trade through my ATC club. For those of you who may be new to ATC's (Artist Trading Cards), they are small cards measuring 2.5" x 3.5" which you create then trade with fellow ATCers. This is a way of sharing ideas and gaining inspiration, as well as making new friends. The best way to trade is face to face, but as this can sometimes be a little tricky, I set up a club whereby people send me their cards and I trade for them. I try to guarantee they always trade with someone different, and there is no limit to the amount of cards you wish to trade.

With this blog I will be showing a selection of my favourite cards. I will also be keeping everyone up-to-date with workshops which I am organising and theme's that are currently in place. This is not a replacement for the Newsletter, which I will still be publishing for my members.

I love ATC's, and running the club is great as I see so many fantastic works of art - I only wish I had more time to devote to my club. If you are not yet a member but would like to join I do charge a small fee of £5 to go towards the cost of running the club. Please send your cheque made payable to Leonie Pujol to:

Leonie Pujol
P O Box 1027

This address is close to me so therefore I'll get the post a little quicker, but please only send mail to me to this address. If you wish to send ATC's and things for Topaz please use the following address:

Dawn Bibby Design Studio & Store
Market Street Works, Market Street, Church, Accrington.

All new members will receive a Welcome pack, with a selection of goodies. Please do bear with me, as I run the club in my spare time, and sometimes I don't have as much of that as I would like! Generally Welcome Packs take me approx 4-6 weeks to send out.

Please feel free to email me if you have any queries:

Leonie said...

Hi Sandy,
I have yet to put some ATC's on the system. I'm rubbish with computers so it should be fun!! Hopefully I'll crack it this week and get some cards displayed (fingers crossed).
I'm glad you liked your trades.

Hi Leonie

Leonie said...

Thank you for all your comments. Took me ages to get the first few pictures on, but should be easier next time. I'm all set for tomorrow, just need to find something to wear. Its nice to know you are watching. Keep up the great work with the trades, I've got loads of ideas so just hope I find time to get everything done!!
Maureen, I'm sorry I've removed your message. I wanted to email you but couldn't work out how to find your email address. Please email me so I can get back to you.
Thank you,
Leonie xxxxxx

Not ATC related, but just wanted to say I hope you are ok as I know you were supposed to demo at Topaz today. It wasn't the same without you! xx

Leonie said...

Hi Debs,
I really missed going to Topaz, it felt weird not being there, like I was really missing out, but the QVC customer event really took its toll and made me a little emotional so I thought it best to get stronger again before another big event. It was such a shame, but I feel alot better now, thank you very much for asking,
hope to see you soon,
