Happy weekend! We have lots of great new goodies in the shop by request! Our ATC Cottage House Kits are now available without the fenced area and our Steampunk Wings now come in a 2 piece style! Scroll down to see some magnificent ATC Cottage inspiration! 

Also, ALL Valentine Goodies are on SALE!






Inspiration by Kim Collister! 
    From Kim: "I can't tell you how much fun I had making one of the New ATC Cottage Houses at Retro Cafe. I basically used everything from my scrap box. Something I really love about these little cottages is how versatile they are. They are made for the ATC Coins and Cards, in the fenced area and inside, and they hold a LOT!But guess what? They also make a very creative business card holder (my square Moo Cards fit perfectly in the fenced area and more storage inside. And the house can hold markers, brushes and or pens too.
    Just a little hint: Valentine's Day is around the corner and there is a Cottage with a Heart window! (I bet the house also holds chocolate) and Valentine ATC's."

Inspiration by Linda Cain!  
    From Linda: "Check it out people! I spent my weekend playing with some Retro Cafe Art Gallery products. Way too much fun!!! This is just one of the ATC Cottage House kits that hold coins and cards, or take the top off, and it houses your brushes and tools. The embossed metal roof is highlighted with some Metallique. I used Fresco Paints, papers and heat-embossed stamped images to adorn the pieces. Add more cutouts with paint and the possibilities are endless."
