Today (Saturday-November 10th, since I write my posts earlier than they post) was my monthly craft group and I had so much fun, but I was also very inspired by one crafty friend in particular.
Kristie is just the sweetest person and I just really am in awe over how many cards she (and my whole craft group) can create for Operation Write Home and they are really nice cards! She has done a tutorial for OWH on using up 6x6 paper pads--which you can see HERE--and that got to me thinking…I am such a paper hoarder that I don’t think I’ve ever completely used a full 6x6 paper pad. EEEK!!
So I am challenging myself to make the plunge and finish a 6x6 pad of paper--in 2 weeks. Granted I’m giving myself a head start as the pad I randomly pulled out to use has already been cut into but still…a whole pad..done…in 2 weeks or less. So bear with many cards using the same paper…hehe..I’ll try to space them out. I’m also going to keep track of how many cards I created using the same paper pad.
The paper pad I pulled out is Basic Grey’s Olivia. Next to help the creative process I picked out a challenge to play along with~ Cute Card Thursday #242- a sketch!
This was fun as I used a different process than I normally do--as I normally pick my image, color it and then pick out papers/sketch/layout. Fun to do it in reverse--and challenging! LOL! I really liked doing it this way as I think it will help me use stamps that I normally wouldn’t reach for. So fun!
Here’s what I came up with~
