Altered Gun ;)

I was asked to do a tutorial on how to load my ATG, which stands for Adhesive Transfer Gun. I need to check out the instructions each time myself, so I found an easy way to do this.
Also I had to alter my gun as I kind of made a mess of it, teehee.

Onto My Day:

Well I worked on altering my ATG. I really fought with the paper choice. As you can see I chose the grungy look.
The girls and I went and rented some movies today. When I went to pay for the movies they said I had a late fee. Last time I rented a movie from there was in July. They said that I had a $20.00 late fee. Are you serious ?!?!
She brought it down to $3.00.

Tomorrow is a holiday here. It is Family Day.
We were going to go to camp and go sliding, but the weather is so cold.
Everything is closed tomorrow, so we figured we would spend the day together watching TV and playing video games. Wayne and Kristy are trying to finish off a game together. So cute.

Hope you had a creative day.



  1. Happy Family Day holiday!

    It's President's Day here in the U.S. tomorrow. (Not very many are off, though.)

    I think I've loaded my ATG gun at least a thousand times. I can do it with my eyes shut. Don't even ask me how much I've spent on ATG tape over the past couple of years. Let's just say I'm a tape hog.

  2. Oh, how I wish I had an ATG gun! That is one thing that I have not invested in. But when I do, I'll be sure to follow your advice about the instructions (genius!) and make it look pretty. TFS and enjoy Family Day!:-)

  3. Good job on your ATG gun! Have a fun and fabulous family day tomorrow. The boys and I are just going to be hanging out together as well :0)

  4. thank you for your comment on my blog again.
    I wish I could crochet!! I should learn it someday. I got these from a friend once....;-)

  5. great job with your atg!i couldnt do without mine

    have a great family day

  6. Tracy,
    LOL. I am the same way. Everytime I load my gun I have to watch a video, for some reason, my brain doesn't like to remember it. Even then, I usually have to ask my husband to do it for me. I like how you have the 1/2 inch tape, where do you get your tape from?
    Have a great family day today

  7. That ATG gun of yours, amazing GORGEOUS!!! You should frame that on your wall! lol.

  8. Enjoy your day off. Sounds like a relaxing and fun day. Love how you altered your ATG

  9. Oh that's pretty! I was thinking, altered GUN?!?! Like, bang, bang? Now that's even better than my altered tampon box! Which, I might say served me well for as long as I had use for it. Enjoy your day off! I'm loving mine!

  10. Hey your links show up the same color! Which is probably just as well...considering it's a tampon box.

  11. Oh Tracy great idea!!! I hadn't even THOUGHT of altering one to keep them in! I actually used that altered tampon box to keep Popsicle sticks with my first graders' names. That way I could keep track of who had and hadn't had turns at certain activities. The dividers were just perfect because it had been one of those kinds that comes with the different sized tampons. :-) :-) :-)

  12. I've never altered my ATG but love to look at those that people have done. I have the Scotch ATG and it actually has a little diagram inside on the right way to load it, and thank GOD for that!

  13. holiday here too - evidently!! No-one got the day off though - only seems to be public servants and the stock market LOL

  14. Enjoy your day off! Love the ATG Gun! I dont use mine much (as I a lefty, and there is a little bit of a learning curve in the other hand...or I am ATG challenged!) Thanks for the video!

  15. Hi tracy,
    Your gun looks fabulous, great idea with the instuctions too.
    Have a nice day's holiday.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x

  16. Hope you have a great day together :) Love the tip of putting the directions on the inside, great idea! I always have to look at the directions too and it's a pain! Might have to try this out!

  17. great job on ATC, its been ages since I made one.
    Well we are now in Myrtle Beach, and enjoying the sun instead of snow. Pat

  18. I LOVE what you did with your gun!! Awesome job.

  19. Your gun looks wonderful. I meant to comment the other day but fell asleep at the p.c. I do that now and then. The body just shuts down. LOL Too many late nights catching up with me and no naps.
    I have the new scotch one too and it has the instructions on the inside. MOm has one like yours and I would love to get my hands on it. double stick reg. tape though.
    Although I do love the new one.
    Hey I think I found a card group. I am excited!
    have a great day and can't wait for the next video!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
