Have you played with “Artist Trading Coins”? They’re similar to ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), but are round and 2.5" diameter (instead of 2.5" x 3.5" for an ATC). Hint: as the diameter of a Coin matches the width of an ATC, all the collage sheets designed for ATCs can be used as an image on a Coin.
In addition to a sample Art Coin in this kit, I also had “Trading Coasters” cut (rounded-corner 2.5" squares) as an alternative to the Art Coins.... i just thought having a bit more surface to decorate would be useful. A Coaster is included in the kit, too (and the super-thick chipboard for both shapes is just begging for some embellishing — just remember to wipe the heavy grey chipboard down with a dry paper towel before you start).
I designed a big bunch of “holders” (pockets/wallets/folders) that fit the Coins or Coasters (and a sampler set of 3 is included in this kit — and there are even a couple more new ones you can see in the newsletter announcing this kit, along with larger 4" sizes of all these pieces).
Beside using the new holders alone (as a little pocket with something inside) you could also bind multiple of them to make a junk journal (mini sized)...
Oh, how can I forget: COLOR!
- I designed a new Art Coin Starters Collage Sheet with all kinds of images, sized for Art Coins. Plus a few extra bits in related themes (birds and seashells).
- Paper from the Ordre du Jour 8x8 Paper Pack (The prints include antiqued vintage paper sample books... they'd be good as wallpapers in small shadowboxes as well as collages.)
There are lots of extra photos above, showing lots of combination options for the Coin and Coaster in each of the holder shapes, so take a look!

AND: all the items in the kit are On Sale, too!
Subscription (USA only)
$15 per month
AND: subscriptions are postage-paid!
Kits are announced the first weekend of each month. However, if you sign up for a subscription, your kit will probably have already been mailed to you.
A note on timing for subscribers: the kits don't ship till your automatic payment is made; the recurring payment date is based on the date you signed up for the subscription. If you'd like to make a 1-time "catch up" payment so that you'll be first in line to receive all future kits, contact Customer Service.
If you buy a subscription after the 15th of the month, your first kit will be for the following month (so if you subscribe on October 16th, the November kit will be your first kit).
Kits from previous months will be available for purchasing until sold out.
And remember, here's a link to everything in this month's kit that is also available to buy separately. More coordinating goodies (and more artwork pics) are in the blog post announcing this kit.
