Each day I am hoping to share 'something Poe' I have made in the past ...

and something I have made for this hop...

So first, last year's make was an ATC 'Tag Book" - each sleeve decorated and containing a pullout ATC.

I remember using images from Lost Coast, IkesArt and stamps from Smeared Ink.

So now onto today's makes...

My husband and I love the auctions - especially when the lot is a job lot of surprises!
We have come away with all sorts of goodies for very modest outlay...

Recently we found in a box of assorted kitchen wares a couple of wooden whisky cases (empty of course!)

Lovely boxes - in the eyes of a crafter! 
And I discovered they were just the right size for ATC storage!

Anyway, first I covered top and sides with a paper from a Tim Holtz idea-ology paper stash, distressed round the edges with black soot.

I then started decorating this with images printed on a grunge/steampunk paper from
 Imagine That Digistamps and matted on black card.

The raven and sentiments are from Vera Lane Edgar Allan Poe

The next set are stamped with archival ink using Smeared Ink stamps (sadly a company who no longer trade)

I attached these to the sides of my box...

See some more tomorrow...

Happy Crafting!
