ACEO in a Bag

After participating in two challenges/parties now, I've decided it was time for me to host one. Plus, it's a good reason to use up some of the extra scrapbook paper I had around, because Lord knows I haven't scrapbooked with it. I have done many other things with it. But that's beside the point.

My friend from CAKE said that wanted to host an ACEO trade. She is known as Foohy and Mootsie on Etsy (both of her personalities are spectacular!). And so we decided to double the pleasure.

I will host a challenge, and she will host a trade, simultaneously, and we will have a huge ACEO extravaganza!

In case you don't know what an ACEO is- ACEO stands for Arts Cards Editions and Originals. They must be 2.5" x 3.5" in size. That is the only limit. Well, that and your imagination. They can be drawn, painted, collaged, photography, quilted, whatever your heart desires.

For my challenge I have put together these starter kits. All or none of the materials can be used. And I have included a fun array of materials. In each kit there is a heavy cardstock blank ACEO with a protective poly sleeve, 3 assorted pieces of scrapbooking paper cut to ACEO size, 3 assorted pieces of scrap paper, 3 assorted fun shaped die cuts, 2 assorted die cut tags, 2 assorted die cut letters, 1 small silver round brad and 1 small flower brad.

The first ten spots will be reserved for the top ten members on the CAKE BNR. There are ten additional spots that will be available on a first-come first-served basis at a buy-in price of $4. That covers shipping materials and costs.

The basic materials are free. This is going to be a fun challenge to see what can abound from 20 different artists when creating these magnificent little art cards. There are enough materials in the kit to create more than one. When finished, they can be kept, traded or listed for sale.
