Where does the time go? Blogging has certainly been low on the totem pole lately with running two retreats, two stores, an online store, a web site, face book and finally a blog it’s just impossible to do it all, all the time. So I try to take a small piece of my day to do the things that I want to do.
As I said to Mr. Clean the other day, sometimes it’s not about what “has” to be done but rather what we “want” to do. We need some time to clear our heads and we all know I have lots of those cob webs in my head to get rid of.
I had a great time designing cards for our card classes using the Time To Flourish paper line by Graphic 45 and wanted to share some of them with you.
These are the cards we created with the March and April papers. We did use some double bows (lots of fun creating these and teaching when I’m a leftie)
The second card was a gate fold card. I created the small flower in the center of the bow using the Wow embossing mold and Gold Utee. I also added a clear Utee film to the flower in the center of the card and then folded the card in various directions to crackle the Utee. I then inked the top to give a real antique feel to it.
The third card was a version of a side step. I fussy cut the flowers and allowed them to flow over the edge to create a bouquet look.
I hope you enjoyed browsing the cards. All of the product used is available in our two stores – Younique in Guelph and Too Younique in Mount Forest.
