Do you purchase items from the $1.50 section from Michaels and never use them...or don't know what to do with them?
Well for these cards I have used some stamps and papers that I had picked up from those sections.
I get a lot of emails from crafters who tell me they can't create because they don't have the funds to buy the latest and greatest products.
This upsets me, as I think everyone can create not matter what your budget. I also believe that the less we have the more creative we are. It gets us thinking outside the box on how to use everyday items in our creations.
But I am still not going to part with my supplies ;)
I have been really enjoying working with sketches lately.
They don't always turn out like the original sketch, but it is still inspiration
These two cards didn't come from a sketch though, but from Amy of Prairie Paper & Ink.
I had some of these $1.50 stamps from Michael's and wanted to use them.
Isn't this little girl silhouette with the basket so sweet.
Here is the inside of the card.
I used this journal spot that Becky had gifted me :)
The papers I used were also from the $1.50 section at Michaels. It was the Paula Dean paper collection.
See you don't need the latest and greatest products to make a few nice cards :)
Another one of Becky's journal spots. I was happily surprised how well they went with these papers.
Onto My Day:
Today was a day off for Kristy again. So I took her out for lunch, then we went shopping for a bit...didn't buy anything...except a couple of chocolate eggs ;)
Then picked up some groceries.
I told Kristy we could do whatever she wanted to do.
So we watched Step Up together..nothing like some eye candy for her day off ;)
I hope you all have had a creative Monday :)
