It has been weeks since I have been able to play in my craft room. Today it is cold outside and I had nothing planned so I finally got a chance to just sit in my craft room and play.
I decided to work on the Clean and Simple challenge #46. I realize I'm a bit late but I really liked the layout so wanted to give it a try.
I pulled out some of my new toys to play with including this awesome stamp set from Hero Arts.
I wanted to keep playing so I took this same general layout and adapted it to an A2 card size using the same stamps. Obviously, I changed the placement of the sentiment and I added some strips of cardstock along the bottom. It is an ultra clean and simple card. I am still considering if I want to add brads or something along the lower left corner - maybe under the darker green strip. What do you think???
Supplies: Stamps - Asian Frames (Hero Arts), sentiment - Beyond Basic Borders (Papertrey Ink), background on card 1 - Background Basics:Retro (Papertrey Ink); Paper - Whisper White, Old Olive, Kraft (Stampin' Up!); green scraps (Bazzill); Ink - Chocolate Chip, Old Olive (Stampin' Up!); Other - Coluzzle, paint brush (to paint the green leaves on card 1, dimensionals, sponge, Corner Rounder (We R Memory Corner Chomper).
So it is New Years Eve. I have decided on my crafting New Year's resolution. First I am planning to "use what I have". That's right, no more hoarding!! I will be using all of the stuff that I have been busy collecting over the last few years! Also, I am hoping to "participate in more challenges". You see, I tend to do the same thing over and over again but when I participate in challenges, it makes me streatch my creativity!! So, there you go...those are the 2 resolutions I hope to be sticking to for 2010!!
I also just want to say thank you to all of those who have stuck with me over the year! I truly appreciate any comments that are left!! And even if you don't leave comments...I still know you are there because my counter keeps going up and up and up! So, I appreciate you too ... and I hope you enjoy what you see!!
Well, we are away for the next few days. I have posts ready to go while I'm away so you still have something fun the look at!! See you all in 2010!!
