I've heard that when you are having a home built that it is guaranteed to take forever! It took me forever to build my ATC house. I was inspired by Mary Jane Chadbourne. She was offering an ATC house class, but I didn't have the extra money for a class at the time. We just returned from vacation!
But I needed a place to store my ATCs. We have been trading ATCs over at Scraps of Darkness/Elegance (depending on what side of the house you live on). And I had just received my July kit, Gypsy Summer. The kit was filled with Graphic 45's Bohemian Bazaar papers.
I built my house from scratch. I did not follow any one's "house plans." All mistakes are my own and I take full responsibility for them.
I began with an utility knife, heavy chipboard and a hot glue gun.
I had to modify things as I went along, but this was the basic design. It's pretty long, but I plan on collecting many, MANY ATCs.
I don't remember when I started this project. I'm not sure how many hours I have put into my ATC house. I'm sure that I worked on this for a week straight and I am a SAHM.
Here's the outcome:
Thanks for taking a look. I'd appreciate any comments!
