Wedding card

weddingI love new stuff, but I also get a lot of satisfaction from using stuff that I already have.  Take a look at some of the earliest cartridges that you bought; you’ll find some treasures there!!

This cut is from Stretch Your Imagination.  It was so simple to make.  I just used the “card” and “card frame” functions to make this adorable wedding card.  Stuck a square of scrap red paper behind the heart, lined the front of the card with black, added a few pearls and a ribbon and called it done.  I think it’s adorable, don’t you?

There are some really great cuts on that cartridge.  Click herehere,  and here to see some other cards made with images from this cartridge.  (Also come back on Friday for one more!!)

It’s almost Christmas.  I’ve been so busy making cards, writing them out, shopping, wrapping . . .  I was REALLY behind this year.  I finished making my cards last week and finally finished writing them out this past Saturday morning.  As soon as they were all written out and addressed, I rushed to the post office to mail them and had to add 20 cents more postage to about 3/4 of them!  Apparently, they were “bumpy” so they had to be hand-stamped, which costs twenty cents more.   Who knew??  Probably all of you!!  but I didn’t know.  Now I do.

Here’s something else you probably know that I didn’t know:  I found out how to make those little countdown lines for my blog.  You can go to Ticker Factory and pick from lots of different designs to inspire you (or shame you) into working toward your goals.  I chose two — one for 2014 Christmas cards and one for scrapbook layouts.  You can check my progress on my side bar.  I have set lofty goals for myself.  Wish me luck!!

  1. Very pretty! I too love revisiting old cartridges and techniques and adding a new twist. It feels like something new with no extra cost…haha
