It’s National Craft Month! Our fun challenge this week at Die Cuttin’ Divas is to incorporate paint chips into our project. I have to tell you, it was fun shopping for them, but I felt like a thief!
This is what I came up with, using last week’s sketch:
You’ll recognize the paint chip right away. My card came together really quickly because the butterfly die cut was in my stash, which also means I can’t tell you what file or cartridge it came from. I always cut as many of the same design as will fit on the virtual mat, not only so I can make several of the same cards at once, but so that if I’m in a time crunch, I can just look through what I already have and build a quick project from there. That’s what I did this time, and using a sketch made it double easy. Besides, I enjoy gluing and assembling while watching TV at night with my husband 🙂
The sentiment was typed on my computer and hand cut. I know Secretary’s Day isn’t for a few weeks, but another time saver for me is what I call “double-dipping.” I look at my calendar to see what’s coming up that I need a card or project for, peruse my list of challenges and see what matches. I have plenty of projects hanging around that I have made for challenges but really have no use for, so I try to match up as much as I can.
This is the second time I’ve used paint chips. Check out this post from 2011 where I made a mini album using them.
Go check out the other projects at Die Cuttin’ Divas and see who had the same project idea that I did! Funny how great minds think alike . . .
