Yay for FINALLY getting into the Craft Cave yesterday! Given the number of hours I was in there I would have thought I'd create a lot more but I took it slow and steady and enjoyed the process - something I have't done in a very long time! It really is SO therapeutic! I'm usually so rushed when coming up with projects. Being stressed and under a time constraint does NOT help get the creative juices flowing. Yesterday was lovely. I used sets I WANTED to use, not ones I felt I NEEDED to use, if that makes sense.
First up was the Charming Cafe set and framelits. Now this one I REALLY sat on the fence on. It's $56.50 CDN for the bundle, which is not a small bit of change post-Christmas and I DID wonder if it was a bit of a one trick pony ... so I thought I'd see. I challenged myself to make three projects with it. Yup - mission accomplished. I'm now crushing on this set and realize it can (and WILL) be used often for quick and easy cards, as WELL as intricate, time consuming works of art.
Check out the first one I made, primarily CASEd from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. It's a tri-fold card.
After spending so much time on one card I wanted something QUICK! I just love the little table and chairs and they fit PERFECTLY on the new Narrow Notecards and Envelopes (page 19 of the 2018 Occasions Catty - $10.75 CDN for 20).
BAM! 5 notecards, all in different colors, that I'll use for a little hostess or teacher gift. I LOVE these and they only took about 10 minutes to whip up!
Off I go to start my day. Have a stampy Sunday!
