Join the ATC art party this August! Make something beautiful to share with the world! This workshop teaches you the basics of creating ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).
The workshop will also encourage you to be more creative and find your personal style. Each of us have the spark of genius inside of us! We just need some help jumpstarting it! Discover the joy of arts and crafts all in one!
What are ATCs? In the 1860s, sports enthusiasts started trading baseball cards which were originally just larger sized business calling cards. As the decades rolled by, trading cards diversified from baseball to a variety of themes such as celebrities, comic books, anime and more.
ATCs were the brainchild of Swiss artist-M. Vänçi Stirnemann. In 1997, he set up the very first ATC show in Switzerland. It did not take long for the trend to cross over to other countries. Today this hobby is flourishing around the world.

The ABCs of ATCs Workshop facilitator will be papemelroti owner and artist Patricia "Patsy" Alejandro Paterno.
Patsy has been creating and exchanging ATCs for years. She uses a variety of techniques and media to give her art a touch all her own. Patsy has been in the arts and crafts business since she was in her teens. Trained as an interior designer, she has been behind most of papemelroti's product lines and the shop's development since it's inception.

“Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it all into words is all that is necessary.” - Margaret Cousins Sometimes we cannot put into words what we feel for the very important people in our lives. They can be our closest friends and family or even those who do their work in an excellent way.
These people are those who love their work and who walk the extra mile for those they serve.
To show your appreciation and support for a job well done, we suggest these Classic Desk Plaques. Each is individually handcrafted with care and made of recycled wood. It is something they will treasure for always!
“Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life and you’ll find that you have more of it.” -Ralph Marston
We want to share with you some of the exciting things papemelroti customers have done with our products!
With everyone on computers and mobile phones, people work with paper less and less. Due to environment conservation, everyone wants to use less resources so as not to overburden the earth - so a lot of scrapbooking enthusiasts are turning to sites that offer digital scrapbooking.
It is no wonder then that only a select group of people have continued to enjoy scrapbooking as it's own kind of art form.
Connie of journalsandpaints has the best of both worlds! She is using her kraft sketchbook to journal her memories but does not do it in a wasteful manner. She knows that she is using100% recycled paper in her projects and thus helping save trees in the process.
journalsandpaints- "It's been a while since I made a collage. Here's Day 30/100 in my handy dandy #papemelroti kraft sketchbook. Have a good weekend, everyone!" Andrew Mendoza's talents are multi-faceted. He paints, draws and photographs his creations in a very appealing way. We discovered his work on Facebook. He makes and sells one-of-a-kind artwork on papemelroti kraft paper products.
Scribbling ABC's - "Write what you know, paint what you see" finished another commissioned notebook design, and i only have one commission left to do for this summer. I'm super grateful to those who ordered these notebooks and to those who continuously support my art - i hope you all feel appreciated everyday. Happy Sunday!"
Zena of zapteofilo enjoys doing art with her family! She showcases a lot of beautifully constructed sketches while using papemelroti paper as her base.
