*raises hand* I'm here, I'm here (Boynton Beach, FL) which is nestled in between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale - Southeast FL.

Am working on getting an ATC ehibition ready within the next year. Will put out an open call for International entries.

Perhaps we can work out a live trade session for after the exhibition...

I really don't know anything about them either, but since several people have asked me if I knew of any in FL, I just thought I'd compile a list of the FL members. Anyone can take this information on the location of everyone and set up a trade. Thank you for signing in.

Hi Nancy, Thank you for signing in. There is a stamping and scrapbook store near me (Lecanto) and she's moving to Crystal River. Other than that...no one around here knows what an ATC is. There is also a Scrapbooking shop in Ocala that knows.
Sorry I didn't get to see you this year on Dianne's hectic shopping spree. Maybe we can meet up in May when she comes for another shopping trip.

Nancy, same thing here: no one has heard of them. So, I'm spreading the word and bringing my ATC-filled binder collections out and about with me.

I'm soon going to hold an ATC exhibit here in S. Florida, too.

But, I actually like having our "secret" society!

We're Special!

Thanks for doing this - I live in Bradenton, Fl

Interestingly I met 2 women at Michaels in Sarasota (next city south of Bradenton)we were just chit-chatting and one of them asked if I scrapbooked - I said yes and I make cards but what I'm really into is Artist Trading Cards - but I can't find anyone around here who does them - guess what? They are active in a group and get together and craft and swap - they were doing a swap on Sunday night that had gotten so big they had to change locations - 50 people -WHAT? I tried to get an invite or some more info but I got the impression they are just players - not coordinators. I did give them my email and name and told them if there was ever an "open" swap or ATC "crop" - I don't even know what they'd call it - I would be very interested. She inquired how I currently trade and I told her all online - I didn't specifically say AFA not for any reason - probably because I always think of this as the ONLY ATC site. heehee Because I love it so much.

GALZART
08-16-2010, 03:51 PM
ICraft, Thank you for signing in. I hope they get in touch with you eventually. That's the first I've ever heard of any gatherings down here....but there must be more.
There is a group here at a local Scrapbooking store (12 of them). They are all given a theme and they have to make 12 duplicate cards to trade with each other. They are nice cards, but mainly "scrapbook" type cards. Nothing wrong with that, a friend of mine is in the group and her cards are beautiful (I have five of them). Too bad they don't trade outside the group.

08-16-2010, 06:59 PM
there are NO scrapbook stores here in the melbourne area; they have all closed. I thought I could at least start with one and see if anyone was doing atcs in the area. there's a stamping group at the library but the lady who runs it is going back to work and really didn't sound interested in ATCs.

Given all that, I am certainly willing to travel to Orlando, Miami, jacksonville or Tampa/St pete (sorry panhandlers...the drive is just too far for me) if anyone would want to get together to work on ATCs together and/or trade.

GALZART
08-16-2010, 09:11 PM
Well, the list is growing, but I know there are still a bunch of FL AFAers who haven't signed in... If you run across any in your trades...point them toward this site.

I'm marking everyone on a map...it seems there are a few people within your 'driving area'.

ICraft
08-16-2010, 10:04 PM
I know what you mean schafme - all but one scrapbook store in our area closed down too - it's such a shame because you can get such awesome and unusual items from specialty shops. Last year I was in the Ft. Myers & Cape Coral area and they have numerous stamping and scrapbook stores - all flourishing - they all carry different types of items and they seem to co-op - giving out business cards for each others stores and recommending the different shops for certain items - it's awesome. It's great that they do so well because there are also 2 ACMoore's and I believe a Michaels - talk about craft heaven.

Slightly OT -- Do any of you do art books/journals? I'm working on the plans for a community book fair here in Orlando, in November, and I'd love to include a display of book-related/book-based art. If you're up for it, I'm thinking of including a talk or class. Sales would also absolutely be allowed. If anybody's interested, please send me a message!

If none of my fellow Floridians are into that, I would also love to include tables of book-related arts & crafts, like bookmarks, tote bags, etc.

Also, we're just starting to think of an art show in the spring. I'll share details as soon as we nail some down!

So far just some winds and 10 foot waves at the beach. We usually don't get too much from hurricane season here in Jax. Every now and then. They hit mostly south of us and to the north.

Glad to hear...I haven't seen a report yet this morning. I don't know where it is right now...guess it's past NC now. I have a friend about 100 miles inland in NC...hope it doesn't extend that far.

I know what you mean about transportation limitations. I do get to Ocala once in a while though. That's my big trip to go to Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Joann's and Priceless Scrapbooks....and sometimes Red Swan Art Supplies.

Calling all Floridians! If any of you are ever interested in doing a live trade and some workshops or sharing of skills, I have a location for us. I teach some classes at a craft shop called Cootie Coo Creations in High Springs (about 15 miles north of Gainesville and about 10 minutes off I95). The owner is a friend and would be happy to host us in her shop (filled with amazing ATC goodies!!!). She has a work space for about 12 people. I'm thinking if there is interest, perhaps we could meet sometime in September. Traders from other states have regular get-togethers, like ARTzona, etc. and we could do that here too.

In addition, Cootie Coo Creations will be hosting an affordable art retreat from October 10 - 14, called Cootie Coo Craziness. Many, many classes will be offered, along with free make & takes, evening dinners with craft activities, etc. etc. etc. I will be teaching an ATC class, a mixed media class, metal tape journal covers and more. Sarah Whitmire (who is a wonderful published artist, art journalist) will also be teaching classes there for the retreat. Here are some websites for more info -- or more will be posted later:

OK, Floridians, I have sent all of you an email to see if we can have a get-together.
Here are the details but times and schedule can be adjusted:

When: Sept. 21, Saturday
Where: Cootie Coo Creations, 280 NE 1st Ave., High Springs, FL 32643
Tel.: (386) 454-8008
What: 11am - 1 pm Creating time -- Sharing techniques, tips, products, or more organized "classes".

1pm - 2 pm Lunch and trading time (There are places for lunch nearby or the shop owner has offered to cater in the shop.)

2 pm - 4pm More creating time for those who wish, followed by more trading.

I'd be happy to do a metal tape ATC class, Dylusions ink, or oil pastel and ink technique if anyone is interested. If you have a skill or technique you'd like to share, let us know!


Thank you! I hope we can make this work.

At the moment, my schedule is clear and it looks like I may be able to attend. It would be about 1.5 hours drive for me, but if anyone wants to carpool from Jax, I can take a couple people with me.

I'll check with my mom, ArtsyLady, to see if she'd like to join us, too. That would leave me able to bring two other people along.

I MAY be coming to the meetup (I don't know...I'm shy :unsure: ). Would it be OK if my boyfriend and daughter accompanied me? They are both interested in art (and my daughter is 15 so she can behave, lol). Also, are we encouraged to bring some of our own supplies? I work mostly in collage, and I was thinking of bringing a stash of paper goodies with me...kind of like a pot luck to share with others.

Hi, Stephiedee,
Don't be shy! It'll just be a few of us and is guarateed to be fun, fun, fun! Bring whomever you like. They are welcome to play along, plus High Springs is full of antique stores, quaint shops, etc. and some cold water springs for swimming are just a few miles away. I was planning on some stash sharing too.

SpiritSoul, uh-oh, you said the word...antique stores...my mom and I might have to hang around longer than I thought!

Thought about bring my daughter, also, but then my Mother-in-law booked a trip to Florida, visiting from PA, so my dd is going to stay home with her grandma.

I would have just stayed home and not gone since my mother-in-law is here, but my mom and I are really looking forward to it, so I'm still coming!

Yes, we had a fun time. Stephiedee, Poeticpaper, and Artsy Lady came from afar and we had 2 other locals besides myself. With significant others and daughters, we had a pretty good crowd. Of course, we were so caught up in creating, we forgot to take pictures! We explored metal tape, gelli plate printing, transfers and Citra Solv paper altering. AND we made some wonderful trades!!

We all agreed that meeting 2 or 3 times per year would be a great idea. Stay tuned for another meet up -- maybe in January after the holidays....

Hi, I'm Cathy and I live just north of Tampa. I go to 2 ATC swap clubs. In both you have to make a number of identical or similar cards then everyone gets one. One is at Scraporium in Lutz (just barely north of Tampa), and the other is at Scraps of Art in Seminole (near Clearwater).

ICraft, this is about 45 minutes away or a little longer, but we are a great group in Lutz. The one in Seminole needs tinkering with. I just drop my cards off there and get what I get.

Hi, Floridians,
We are planning another get-together for Florida traders in High Springs. Our last one was so much fun that we thought that beginning a twice-a-year tradition would be super. We can meet Sat., Feb. 1st, at Cootie Coo Creations, a rubberstamp/craft store.
Here are the details:

When: Saturday, Feb. 1st

Where: Cootie Coo Creations, 280 NE 1st Ave., High Springs, FL 32643
Tel.: (386) 454-8008 -- www.cootiecoocreations.com

What: 11am - 1 pm Creating time -- Sharing techniques, tips, products, or more organized "classes".

1pm - 2 pm Lunch and trading time (There are places for lunch nearby or you can bring a bag lunch.)

2 pm - 4pm More creating time for those who wish, followed by more trading.

If you plan on coming, please let me know by PM so we can plan to have enough work space. I got some fantastic trades last time, so I'd better start making more cards now!

There are 2 ATC clubs in the Tampa Bay area that I know of.

Scraporium, in Lutz, just north of Tampa has a group of about 20. Meetings monthly, cost $10, refreshments provided. Each month there is a theme and you make 20 identical (not me, similar but not the same) cards to bring with you and trade with everyone.

Scraps of Art in Seminole, just south of Clearwater has a group of 8 to 10. Mandatory technique each month, again you make 10 identical (not me! similar but not the same) cards to bring with you and they are given to the "host" and she trades them out. Donation of $5 no refreshments.


I am going to this meet up on Feb. 1st in High Springs. I am from Land O Lakes area, just north of Tampa. It is about a 2 hour drive for me. I live just off I-75 near the northern apex of I-75 and I-275. I may be bringing a couple friends but I do drive a mini-van so there is plenty of room if anyone wants to car-pool from that point north to save on gas money. I would be able to pick them up from the on/off ramp (meaning a McDonalds or gas station... not door to door service- then it would be a 4 hour drive for me!). So, just pm me to reserve your spot.

If there is anyone in the Tampa Bay area that would be interested in a get-together around here, let me know. I have connections and we could all meet in Tampa Bay for a swap like this one also. Again, just pm me if there is any interest.

Thank You. I just got the two new sizes: 3x5 and 5x7. I'm going to have to really concentrate and use a lot less paint than I do on the larger plates.
I'm glad you ventured into Gelli printing. Just grab a friend and show them what you're doing. I guarantee they'll have their hands in it. Just show them how they can make "quick art" to make a custom gift card.

I have a friend who comes down to visit every year. Last year I showed her how to do it then handed her the brayer and told her to "have fun" and I went and sat down and watched. It's so addicting and she painted quite a stack of prints to take home. She now has her own Gelli plate....and she'll be back in November for another session.

But, if you have to work alone, you'll find it relaxing too. I do. I like to go out in the evening and just get messy and make a stack of prints.

Just letting you know of an art retreat event in High Springs, Florida again. Oct. 9 - 13 and there is a wide variety of mixed media classes. Check www.cootiecoocreations.com or Sharon Kantor on Facebook for a schedule. There are a few of us that do ATCs there -- perhaps if anyone is coming we could schedule a time for a live trade. A couple of Florida artists featured in Somerset will be teaching too.

I met up with one of the ladies a few years ago when a friend was visiting me. We happened to be going to a Quilt Shop in the town where the lady lived so managed to meet up there for a short visit.
