Yup this sentiment says it all...
I have to send Many Thank You cards out.
This card came together surprisingly quick. Nothing I make comes out quickly, lol.
This stamp is from the $1.50 bin. I bought it a while ago.
Used my distress ink to stamp it and lightly changed the colour of the paper with the same ink.
Backed it with some cardstock, cut with my Nesties.
Pattern paper to the base and called it a day.
Oh ya and I used this tape for a embellishment.
Not sure where I got this from..it may have even been from the dollar store?
The inside of my card.
Are you getting tired of me using recipe cards for the inside of my cards?
Ya, well to bad, lol. I love them, teehee.
I have been getting a lot of questions lately from young or newer women asking me questions about this craft we love so much.
Hubby calls me the Ann Landers of the crafting world, lol.
I love to answer their questions...even though I don't know all the answers.
But the question I get the most is how expensive this craft is.
But honestly it doesn't have to be. Plus most of the ones they are watching have been crafting for years, they have built up their supplies.
I have always created. But when I started scrapbooking (in the way it is know today), I had a plastic template I bought when I was in public school. I made the rest myself with what ever I could find.
Trace shapes by using dishes or against the window....free.
Use what you have, reuse mailings that come in the mail...free.
Use envelopes that you get at the bank....free.
Use pop tabs, milk tabs....free
Cut out your Christmas cards you received from Christmas....free
Left over wrapping paper./..free.
Colour string with markers.
These are just ones that I came up with in a mere few seconds.
Sure it can be expensive, but it doesn't have to be.
We don't need all the latest and greatest of supplies...in 5 or 10 yrs no one is going to know what was "in" at the time. Nor will they care.
Just do what you love.
Hubby bought me a teeny tiny photo printer for my P365 for this year.
Made a Thank You card
Didn't have to cook supper again ;) Thanks Wayne ;)
I did get a good night sleep last night :)
Sticking to my one pop a day for this week
