Sometimes the urge to just make things for making sake grabs me and yesterday was one of those days. But although making for makings sale is good I thought about all those lovely pages I see on blogs about project life and how I can’t be bothered to add details like stitched borders to my weekly spreads so I leave them fairly plain.
What better then to take my creative-ness yesterday and get a few little bits prepared ahead of time, ready to be used in PL.
I took some of the base cards I’d already cut down, brought my sewing machine downstairs so I could watch Snooker and Baseball (I know wierd combination) then went to this great blog and shamelessly copied some of her page embellishments onto my tags and cards.
And I loved doing it. I have always liked any stitched elements on paper craft projects but never do it myself so now I have a stack already prepared. I like that idea more than I can say. So unlike me to be ready prepared!
Need to tidy up the ends of the threads…. but here is a closer look at a few of the cards.
Do you prepare ahead?
