A little play time
Hello! We have finally made it to our fall break at school and I couldn't be happier! It seems like since we've moved, I find so many other things that require my time and I have little time to be creative... But now I have an entire week off of school and I'm determined to get some things accomplished in my studio! The past two days have been spent doing laundry and catching up with neglected projects, and, now my focus is on working in the studio. This will include a bit of cleaning, reorganizing, and maybe even a trip to find more storage pieces! So excited!!
This afternoon, I was able to sneak a little time to make some cards for my stash. My organizers are pretty empty and there are birthdays and anniversaries just around the corner. I decided to focus on anniversary today and pulled up a design I pinned a very long time ago. It was actually a quilt block design, but I love altering those to make some cute quilt like cards! Click here to see the original design.
I used 1" squares of whisper white and rich razzleberry from the Sycamore Street dsp. Some were kept whole, while others were cut diagonally to make triangles. Personally, I find that it's easier to glue my squares/triangles to a piece of copy paper and then run that through an embossing folder. I'm not sure how else to keep the pieces together...
I decided to mix things up a bit. I did the first one with the sentiment stamped on the side and decided that I didn't care for that as much as I originally planned. So the next one was stamped under the quilted piece. I also changed the patterned paper behind the quilting. I'm not sure which I like better. I think the multi colored piece makes the heart stand out more.
Well, I really don't have much more to share today, but I am so glad you stopped by! I'm going to try to be super productive this week and hopefully will have more to share with you in the near future! Have a wonderful day!
