Happy Tuesday! One of my goals for 2014 is to send more letters, cards etc. I feel silly when I am in a pinch and need to send out a card and end up pulling out one of the pre-made ones I have tucked in a drawer. I mean, HELLO I have a craft room full of products that inspire me, there really is no excuse. But the one I often like to make is "I have no time!", does that sound familiar? So I set out with some goals.
1. Make three cards in 15 minuets.
2. Find inspiration in work I have already created
3. Use the kit I have on my desk.
The kit sitting on my desk was Blue Note
The layout I decided to take my inspiration from
I simply used the scraps on my desk that I had out from making my Blue Note projects.
Then I made 3 card bases with white card stock and started with the same composition on each card. Simply using the washi tapes that came in the kits, and a piece of paper in the same manner.
I took 3 labels and added them to the cards as well as the adorable stickers.
I also knew I wanted to add the sewing detail that
I had on my layout so I added that quickly to all of my cards.
From there I had the base of the design done and started to
design each card on it's own with the supplies I had right around me.
I always cut all my cut files for the month on white right when
I get them to have them on hand so the "believe" was an easy add!
I love that after only 15 mins and simply using the supplies I already had out I now have 3 cards ready to send out to some of my favorite people!
So here is my challenge for you! The next time you make a layout, take 15 mins. afterwards and make a couple cards! Link me up, I would love to leave you some love!!
