Fall is here! Are you as excited as I am? It’s chilly and darker in the mornings. Leaves are starting to turn in my ‘hood. And last night my husband made some banana spice breads (standard spice cake batter with bananas that were overripe, and some chocolate chips). I absolutely LOVE this time of year! But boy is it ever busy! This is my busiest time of year at work. And then the kids’ calendars are full too. Plus my design work. And then I’m making a quick trip to California in October so I am trying to get all the California family Christmas presents wrapped before I go so I can take them with and save on postage later. Busy busy busy….
Today I’ve got some cards that were up on the Fancy Pants Designs blog not too long ago.
Here’s to a great Fall for us all!
Jesse sent me some happy mail recently with some paper clips, sea shells, manila tags, and other fun bits to craft with. Whether you’ve been crafting for months, years or decades, chances are you’ve amassed a lot of stuff. I try to purge, and donate to our church youth program often enough, but I still have a lot of stuff. So I think it’s important to work with what you have. And I decided to make some gift tags with the manila tags that she sent me.
I’m back today with the boy version of the baby girl card that I posted yesterday. Again I am using Imaginisce’s My Baby collection. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I rarely plan on making cards with the slanted/crooked patterned paper like this. What usually happens is that my main patterned paper piece did not go down quite as centered as I would have liked (see the top right corner), so then I play off that and make the whole thing crooked. And no one ever knows. Except you. But keep that under your hat, would ya’?
I’ve been working on bebe cards this week and today I have a super simple one made with Imaginisce’s My Baby collection. I really really love their die cuts – and love using them to make a quick no-stampy card. I’ll be back tomorrow with the boy version of this one.
