Stitches & Florals

Today, I went over to Boise and attended the Stamp and Scrap Fest. Found a few unique stamps and goodies. It was a nice day. Not much else to blog about today but thought I would at least post the card I made this evening.

Bits & Pieces

Attached is a card and tag that I made up today from elements I created earlier and then set aside, waiting for the right project. Between work, school, and raising a family my crafting time has drindled down to nearly nonexistant. So, I have started to work in bits and pieces. I play around with decorative chipped glass and Alcohol Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), color tags with Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), or fancy up some black card stock with Opalite Ink (Tsukineko, Inc). Each just takes a bit of time to put together; then when I’m ready to make a full project I am already halfway there.

All of this demand of my time has made me rethink my crafting process. This bits and pieces stamping has built up my idea box and made my crafting time more productive. It was very satisfying to see two completed projects sitting on my craft desk today. Happy Stamping! L
