Artist Trading Block Favourites

Hello Friends
I apologise for my long absence and lack of visits, hopefully by early next month
I will be be in a better position to rectify that, I hope you will bear with me....

This month at Art With Heart we are not having a challenge (and things are being changed up for future months).  Eileen Hull has released some fabulous new products at CHA (like the cantilever sewing box I featured here and here) and Eileen has also re-released some all time favourite dies.  One of these is the large Artist Trading Block (ATB) die (Szzix 658983) which is my personal favourite.  The Design Team are showcasing these re-released dies during this month. 

First up is my Artist Trading Block Storage Cabinet, details of which can be found here.  I used some fabulous G45 papers to cover the cabinet.  This shows how versatile the ATB die is, you can create 3D projects with it.

Next is my Valentine Heart Box, details can be found here.  This was the first ATB I ever made and DH still has it out on show to this day.
My next choice is my Circus themed ATB using Tim Holtz's Big Top Circus stamp set (details here).
Another favourite is an Andy Skinner inspired ATB, made using DecoArt products and Andy's Faux Letterpress Technique (details here)
My final choice is a project made for our lovely DT member Anna-Karin, we held a virtual baby shower for her, following the birth of her beautiful baby Leo (details here)
I hope you can see how wonderfully versatile the Artist Trading Block (ATB) die is.  I have made houses with it - and even a steam train, it is such a fun die to use.

Edited:  I have had some very exciting news.  Thanks to Eileen Hull and Jo Packham of 'Where Women Create'  I have had four pieces published in Sizzix's newest book release 'Make it a Party'.  I am so thrilled and honoured, it is a beautiful book and wonderfully illustrated and it is my first time ever being published!!
Thanks for looking, take care and I hope to see you soon!

Hugs, Anne xx

  12. Here she is -- goodness gracious Anne - you have been very busy with all of your makes. Now which one is my favorite. Well that is quite easy my dear - the Old Curiosity Storage Cabinet. Now if that was all you made I still would have been very impressed! Now are you trying to tell me that those boxes were made some time ago. I am going to read through your blog again and read everywhere you said to go like here and here.
    One very big congratulations and kiss on the cheek -- I cannot think of anyone nicer or more talented than you with 3D makes. I can't wait to see the magazine. Now you really are famous!!!! Eat your heart out girls - Anne has arrived!!!
    Think about you a lot - will write soon.

  38. These are absolutely astonishing, completely "out of the box" for me. I almost cannot choose a favourite. The Valentine one is terrific with the red and the turquoise and I'm glad DH appreciates it and I love the zizaggy bit on the elephant one. I see you have details on how you made these so am off to have a look at artwork so different from my own, therefore fascinating.
