CARD MAKIN' KIND OF SATURDAY
I had a card makin’ kinda weekend this weekend :D. Well, Saturday, I mean. Sal & Christian went to the baseball game (Marlins V. Mets) and even before that, I was just really inspired to make cards. I really utilized Alivia’s (2) nap times and gave Paige and Christian some crafts to do themselves and searched my stash...
I used a 6x6 pad of Basic Grey’s Sugar Rush papers, glue dots, Glossy Accents, and some cardstock and went to town. I also had a sheet of the Sugar Rush Stickers that I got in one of the kit clubs I used to belong to. I really had fun. I also saw this little pin tin decoration idea on Maya Road’s Blog this weekend. Mine isn’t nearly as intricate as theirs, but I made my own simpler version (also using this the stack of Sugar Rush papers) and I like how it turned out. I knew I was saving those little useful tins for SOMETHING, and I had really wanted to be able to store my pins somewhere!!
I have to say, I was wholeheartedly surprised by how many things I created with this little stack of 6x6 papers, and I had at least 6 pages left - UNTOUCHED!!
Thanks for visiting my blog!! I am a wifey to my husband of almost 16 years Sal. Mommy to Christian (11) and Alivia (8) and my niece Paige (15). I LOVE cooking, reading, lifting weights, being active, cardmaking, stamping, and really all crafts involving paper. We live in sunny South Florida. I'm a Christian woman who wholeheartedly and completely believes in, and relies on the power of prayer. By day, I'm a legal assistant.
