Tin of Cards, part one

I started the Tin of Cards kit by making the tabs and one set of Cards.

The tabs were a little tricky as the straps had to line up just right, as you will see in the pictures I wasn’t quite successful on some of them.

The addition of the cardstock was very easy, just line them up at the bottom corner leaving about an eighth of an inch all around.

The first set of Cards was fairly straightforward the only confusing part was wether to adhere the cardstock to the inside back of the cardstock or the inside front. I chose the inside front and that became a little tricky with the glue.

For easier application I would go with the inside back of the cardstock.

I would also like feedback on the style of my photos…slideshow or clickable individual photos?

Thank you in advance and as always keep creating!

Just a Note

I know some of you have been waiting for my post on the Tin of Cards and I promise it is coming. With that being said, I work two overnight shift in town and all though it’s not much it throws my whole week off.
I have completed the dividers and a set of the cards which I will post tonight. I have to admit when I moved my craft stuff back to my house I temporarily lost my Tin of Cards stamp set. Minor setbacks but I wanted you to know I haven’t gone off grid again.

Over the next week I will put together the cards and the tin.

I will share with you each of the card designs as well as my thoughts on the project.

So far just looking at the project up close I think it s a great addition to any stampers craft room.

I know that for me, even when I am stamping all the time it seems that when I NEED a card I don’t have one handy.

I also know that when I really need a card I also don’t have time to create one from scratch.

This kit fixes that problem,not only does it have everything you need to create a card quick it has a place to keep cards for those unexpected occasions.

Stay tuned to see the cards made from this kit and the project inspired by this kit.

Life Happens…

It has been over a year and many think I have dropped off the face of the earth, but I am still here!

So much has happened since I last posted…

I really thought I would be back when I said I would, but as the title says life happens.

The new job I talked about in the last post consumed my life and my health. That is no longer the case. I make no excuses for my absence but I want to take time to thank you for staying with me!

I can’t wait to show you all the new things that Stampin Up! has come out with and it’s almost Sale-a-bration!!!

I love sale-a-bration, they always have so many cool things and lots of freebies.

I will be adding more of my personal life on here as well, you will be able to find that under “On a personal note” if you so choose to read my ramblings, oh and see pictures of my animals, lol.

I won’t promise that I will be consistent with my content because every time I do life interrupts my plans. I am making my blog and my stamping a priority because I need to get back to what I love to do and what makes me happy and that is creating with paper and ink!

So, hang in there with me while I get back into the swing of things.

I Love the Unexpected…

Okay sometimes they throw me for a loop
I had a relapse from my illness, got a house with a catch, and a job offer I couldn’t refuse
The catch on the house was in order to move in we had to repaint the entire house, rip out the carpet, and repair all the windows
The house is now ready for carpet which is coming monday the 7th
we can finish moving in after that so then I can start creating and blogging again!
The good news is I will have a lot more space, I will have 24 hour access to my computer, and I now have this handy dandy tablet to post with as well so…
I hope to be back creating and blogging by say the 14th of July
I can’t wait, I have so much to show you!
Thank you for hanging with me, I really appreciate it!!!

Talk to you soon and please leave me a comment about what you want to see most!
