Happy 2019 – Jennifer Snyder wishing you all the best in the brand new year.  Thank you, Creative Embellishments, for providing me another year of opportunity and crafty fun.  I have no crafty resolutions in 2019 – just to create what I love because it’s a way to relax, calm my soul and fight off stress.
Affordable, quality products are essential in the quest for creative joy and peace.  Am I right?  That’s why I celebrate Creative Embellishments.  Affordable, American made, amazing quality, original designs, and frequent sales – make the product a super value.  
I’d like to present my new passion from Creative Embellishments – Artist Trading Coins (a cool new take on the Artist Trading Cards).  They can be used for so many projects and in my opinion are not as limiting as the traditional ATC.  
The image above shows the chipboard pieces used in the natural unfinished state:
I’ve been using the trading coins as shaker cards, ornaments, card embellishments and now as a feature on a  pop-up card.

Here is a quick video showing the pop-up card in motion.  Special thanks to my husband for the hand modeling.

This is the cover of my card.  It’s simple and neutral so I can use for the many music enthusiasts in my life.   Note how fabulous chipboard looks without treatments.
I used Stamperia’s Music paper collection for this card.
The inside pop-up feature was super easy to make by backing each Music Artist Trading Coin with different patterned paper for extra drama.



Thanks for stopping here.  Happy 2019
