Pinch, Punch, First of the Month
Well it will be tomorrow! 1 June to be precise and the start of my 365 Questions Project.
First day of Half Term; it's raining and the sun's gone into hibernation. AARG. Typical!
I've even contemplated putting the heating on ... (gasp!).
I'll try wrapping my hands around a hot cup of tea instead ...
The Thinlits Circle Card die is a cinch to use - it's great for a quick and easy card with a bit of a difference!
Very quick, easy and simple. Couldn't resist glittering the flowers :)
It is ABSOLUTELY chucking it down outside.
Not a particularly Happy (weather) Day; perfect Happy (crafting) Day though!
Hope the sun is shining with you - it's pouring here!
I've been mulling over journalling & project life for sometime now. Whilst surfing the net and perusing Pinterest I came across Tami Taylor's idea of 365 Questions. The idea is you answer the same question on the same page every year for 5 years. I thought I'd give it a go! I am jumping in (nearly) halfway through the year on 1 June.
I suspect I am not alone in the crafting community at having accumulated & amassed rather large quantities of remnants and off cuts of card, patterned paper and embellishments (cough cough!) My plan is to try and use these productively to make a set of journalling cards each month. I have used a sheet of A4 cut down into 4 cards which I reckon will give me enough space for writing and embellishing! Having said that however, I reckon I'll only be able to fit 3 years' worth onto my cards. If I'm still loving the idea 3 years hence I'll make some more cards and start the cycle again!
For June I've used 4 sheets of A4 for my background cards - I'm making them double sided to cut down on bulk. Then I've simply punched a hole in the top corner and joined them with a ring.
I intend to post my cards every day (fingers crossed!). Do leave me a comment if you fancy having a go yourself and remember to pop back on 1 June! If you'd like to read more about the idea from Tami herself, take a look here .
Nearly Friday ...
Thanks for looking!
How quick and easy?!
A masculine card for the boys to send to their Grandad.
Cute little box made with the Scalloped Tag Punch. If you'd like a go, I got the tutorial from here.
Long Bank Holiday Weekend coming up!
