Making cards is feeling like a fast papercrafting fix at the minute (though I seem to be even untidier on small projects - why does it take more stuff to make less?) and I'm enjoying tucking the end result away and knowing I can use it for something useful.
Week Two: A Clean and Simple Card
using Pink Paislee rub on I think I got in a kit about three years ago and a little October Afternoon tab stamped with a Citrus Twist stamp. I backed the tab with brown spotted paper and added a little strip inside. Is that too much for clean and simple? I've got a lot to learn!
Week One: Something New
This one started off as a New Home card because I found the Studio Calico wood Veneer houses; but then I also found a "January" rub on and changed it into a Happy New Year card instead. The background paper is from Basic Grey's Aspen Frost 6x6 pad and I cut the little fence shape with the Slice.
the Christmas Card extra challenge. A Christmas card a week following the prompts? I like this idea - it will make a change to have a range of cards to send out in 2013. I enjoy choosing different pictures for different recipients, so I put together a little wooden tray of festive bits and pieces and I'll see how much of it I can use up before I need to add anything else. That's my first card right there, and it might be the last one I post until Christmas comes round again. I'll be keeping them in reserve!
That's me for today. Before I go I'd like to thank everyone who joined in the first Storytelling Sunday of the year. Thank you! We had five new storytellers this month. Welcome! If you haven't had a chance to check out our January "precious" collection, you really should right here. And, if you still have a story to tell, don't forget the Linky stays open all week.
I'll be back with another So This is Scrapbooking later in the week.
