It’s time for our Wednesday snoop with Julia over at The Stamping Ground and this week I have actually been crafting for myself.
This past weekend I should have been on a scrapbook retreat with Go Go Getaway but of course, we had to do it on line instead. This lovely rainbow shaker was part of one of the classes that I didn’t get to finish over the weekend because I kept messing the darn thing up. I forgot to stick the acetate down before I put the foam pads on. Then, rather than starting over, I thought I could get away with sticking the acetate on the front and just putting the hand cut outer edge on to hide the glue (I steadfastly did NOT want to get my Cameo out again). But of course all the carefully placed sequins have sneaked under the boughs and merged a bit in their colours. I’m going to cut another full one and place it on the top to see if it hides the blur enough but if not I shall have to start again. *sigh
This weekend saw a lot of scrapping and a lot of soul searching and some big decisions were made. I now need to put them into action and that requires some big girl pants and a deep breath. This card was made for me by one of my lovely team a few weeks ago when things were starting to ‘wobble’. The sentiment is very much needed but isn’t it a beautiful card?! It’s made with that wonderful technique of stacking the same die cut / cut file up several times, backfilling the apertures once with coloured cardstock and then filling in the holes with Glossy Accents. Fiddly, but I think it’s worth it.
With any luck I will be back next week with another snoop. Till then, you will find me coffee in hand, sequins on face, gadding about the desks of the other lovely crafters who share their workspace with us on Wednesdays.
Be kind to yourselves x
