Another Cut Out Card...

Saturday, January 28, 2012

A few days ago I showed you a card I did for the Less is More challenge.  You can see that post here.  I enjoyed the "Cut it Out" challenge so much I just had to do another card. 

I hope you can tell by the pictures that I cut out the heart shape with a die (from Papertrey Ink) and then surrounded it with flat back pearls.  I stamped the greeting inside the card with gray.   The card is 4 x 4.

Cut it Out

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

This weeks Less is More Challenge is "Cut it Out".   Translation, to have some kind of hole or aperture in your card.  Oh the possibilities... but with Valentine's Day right around the corner I decided to use that as my theme. 

I'm sure there are many different ways produce this "Cut Out" technique, but I feel the easiest way is to use
one of your favorite dies.  I added a couple of small pieces of tape to keep the die from shifting. 
I found this sweet little Cherub card/picture holder and thought it would make a great card display for Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, and even baby cards too.  I couldn't resist it!
Stamp - Unknown (sorry)
Paper - Bazzill White

A New Year...

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Happy New Year Everyone!

How do you define the things you want to accomplish?  Are they resolutions or goals?

If you're like me the New Year is a time for planning and organization, or maybe that should be reorganization.    Whether you prefer to define these as resolutions or goals, I believe the process is the same.   It's really all about planning, commitment, and action. 

As part of the commitment process, I believe you have to talk about them.  Put them out there.  With that said, my stamping/scrapbooking goals for this year are:

1. Start scrapbooking again
Specifically, I want to get my oldest daughter's high school scrapbook caught up.  She is a junior this year.  My second scrapbook goal is to complete our  2011 Summer Trip.  We drove across the country (with two teenagers). 
2.  Blog more
3.  Purge  the supplies I don't use
4.  Reorganize my ribbon stash
5.  Try out for a design team
6.  Submit work for publication
7.  Practice coloring more with my Copics

In the next few days I plan to post a few tips about how to achieve your goals.  I hope you'll stop by again.  Oh, and I almost forgot, I have a few Valentine's Day projects to post too!

If you haven't already set your goals for the new year, it's not too late!
