My card, based on a sketch somewhere between Kristina’s and Julie’s it definitely started out based on Kristina’s sketch… from day one of Clean & Simple 2.
Looking back I think the pinwheel is too big, but I was tires last night and didn’t spot that last night.

really bad lighting

I really wasn’t happy with this card, I think I cut the dotty paper a bit short… I didn’t want to abandon it and kept on adding and adding and I suppose it’s ok, but I’m not that pleased with the end result. In the other had it is a use of a seasonal paper in a nonseasonal setting.

catching up with older stuff

So I’m in the city without any paper supplies, but was putting together a CHA wish list in my head and looking through old projects to look at the supplies I actually use…
My wish list, as always, includes a lot of Doodlebug Designs (I just wish it was easier to get in the uk), SN@P from simple stories, some of the Pebbles basics, but on the whole I’m planning on a bit of much needed stash busting!
With that in mind I’ve been making a few cards this one I made a few weeks ago but didn’t share:

Patterned papers: American Crafts Dear Lizzy
Embellishment: divine twine, studio calico and doodlebug

fun with washi

Off into the city for the day, so I’m relaxing and getting to see A, but not really warming up for the online card class I’m taking…

Last night however I did manage to make another card using my washi tapes from doodlebug, this time a 4” square card, but I continued to use the ‘lovebirds’ stickers.

Now I’ve got a weekend of fun on the cards and so will hopefully have a few images to scrap soon. I’m just waiting for good conditions to photograph my December daily and then I will share that too!

playing with washi

I’ve had washi tape in my stash for a while but I’ve mainly used it as a temporary adhesive or along the edges of my silhouette cutting mats after they’ve been reconditioned. However when Doodlebug released their polka dot washi with their new ‘Lovebirds’ collection I thought I’d give it a go in my crafting… This is the first of the results from the 10 minutes of spare time I’ve managed this week.
