This week has been a tough crafting week in my house. Forget the season. Everyone is busy with this holiday season buying gifts, wrapping, parties, making Christmas cards, cleaning the house (oh wait, that one still needs to be done), etc. The worst part is I have had the flu for the last 5 days. I am slowly feeling better but one of the things I seem to have lost is my creating mojo. I have tried to make some cards but usually ended up staring at my things and giving up. I threw a lot of things out too!
I decided I needed some help so I went online looking for challenges (what the heck did we ever do before the internet?). The best part about challenges is they give you a layout and you just use your own product to make a card. It makes life so much easier. I liked this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge and decided to use it.
Here is the card I made:
It uses a ton of new products that are coming out in the 2014 Occasions Catalog. You are really going to love this catalog! I want almost everything in it! There are two stamp sets in this card. One is called Perfect Pennants and the other is Petite Petals. Petite Petals has a matching punch and you can buy both and save 15%. The tag was made using another new punch called Scalloped Tag Topper and I even used new Designer Series Paper called Kaleidoscope!
The moral of this story is, if you need a little boost in your card creating, try doing a challenge. It helps a lot!
Ok, now I am off to buy a Mega Millions ticket so I can actually purchase it all!
I love this, Susan! Hope you’re feeling better.
