Over my first cup of coffee this morning, I was reading your blogs and someone said (sorry, don't remember who), that they were two weeks behind in using supplies out of their box of new supplies. Two weeks??!! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. My box of new supplies-that-won't-be-put-away-until-they-are-used keeps getting bigger and bigger and BIGGER. I've never, ever been within two weeks of using them all.
So, before I even saw the LIM challenge, I knew I was reaching into that box for this morning's card. On the very top were heart bling, a set of Sizzix embossing folders and a new set of stamps from Verve. Here they are...
Now...continuing on my thread from yesterday...I am losing huge blocks of my time because on Monday I am a full-time college student again!! I WILL continue making cards - but one of the things that I realized was that I simply wasn't going to have time to make and re-make until I felt they were deserving of being posted. My new focus will be to post the card that I create - but also tell you what I would like to have re-done. I think this could be a good learning time for all of us - a here is what works and what doesn't work feature. For example, I don't dislike this card, but in my old life, I would have re-done it.
IF I COULD DO IT OVER...
The sentiment does not stand out enough. I thought the fun font would give it enough interest, but it still gets lost.
This could be solved in two ways:
1. If I wanted to keep that sentiment, I could add it on a label die.
2. I could try a bigger and/or bolder sentiment.
Knowing myself well - I would imagine this feature will be a regular part of my blog posts as I can always finding something that I would do differently!
