Variations on a Theme
My C-word card making went better this Sunday and I managed to make this little batch yesterday afternoon. A pretty good haul for me - I'm not the quickest crafter in the world!
I used the Cuttlebug mini Christmas motifs die and leftovers from the BG Wassail paper pad of last year.
To try and speed myself up I stuck full die-sized squares or the papers onto cereal packet squares then cut a full set of shapes from each. There are some motifs I'm not so keen on, but I was strict with myself and didn't go messing about only cutting the ones I wanted!
Yes, I really am that sad and would normally do that, just to save those teeny tiny pieces of paper!
On Saturday we drove up to the NEC in Birmingham to visit the "Grand Designs Live" exhibition. It was ok, but considerably less impressive than we'd thought it would be - it was smaller than expected and the things we'd really wanted to see were in short supply. We were really after some ideas for when we do our kitchen and there wasn't much of interest - and the stuff that was there wasn't very innovative/high tech/exciting at all, nothing like you see on the Grand Designs TV programme.
Still, it made a change, eh?
Hope you had a good weekend
Thanks for visiting
