Yesterday evening after Skyping with Ros
(it was fun dear!)
I decided to declutter my craft room.
My goal for 2016 is to use up more patterned
papers and I decided to sort them out.
There's quite a pile that I am going to give to others.
Such a relief; I just had too many and I love
to work with cardstock, dies, stamps and inks.
I use patterned paper from time to time
but not as much as I did a few years ago.
Now I have a -small- collection that I will use.
I also sorted out my
embellishments, ribbon and stamps.
My room is completely decluttered and I'm happy:)
Today I made a card for the current Liftchallenge.
We're suppposed to lift this card:
And make a corsage
with the sketch in mind:
Instead of patterned paper I embossed
my card base with a honeycomb folder.
The stitched leaf is cut from a
color sample from the paint store.
(We're going to build a new coat rack in the hall;
I love this color but it won't work in our hall:)
A heat embossed feather, a wooden leaf
and a "Swoosh" sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
I love these dies and it's a different way
of adding a sentiment:
Thanks for stopping by!
