    This is so annoying that all my pics come out sideways! I'm going to have to figure this out. Anyway, I used maps from an old Road Atlas of Great Britain. I really like the colors of the maps. I realize my last coin with the bicycle is quite a bit off the edge, but I couldn't bring myself to cut it off. I'll leave that to the discretion of whoever receives it in the swap

    That bicycle is fantastic!! I also like the blue butterfly with red paper on either side. So beautiful.

    How do you get the thin ring of paper that you've used as a border on a couple of your coins? It gives such a clean finished look.

    My pictures are always sideways. I have to open each one on my computer and rotate it.

    Thanks for the feedback Melissa. The thin ring of paper comes from a die cut that I have which is a bunch of concentric rings. I've only just realized that two of them look good on these coins, so I'll be making more of them in the future!

    Thanks also for the rotating advice. I'm going to try it and see what happens...

    dithespy and Vegan4animals, both of your card sets are fantastic! I was also noting how nice that inner circle was. I used my cricut last night to cut those small rings to make a shaker coin, but I never thought about using them in this way! Yay! I learned something new today! LOVE THIS GROUP!
    Creating gives me peace

    I LOVE maps and have a couple of atlases staring at me as I write (1 is in Mandarin) but I had completely forgotten that I also bought a calendar that used old world maps. Off to hunt it down. . .

    OOOH please sign me up, too
