Where I've Been

I feel like I haven't been posting as frequently as usual. If you follow me, you might remember that I was recently sick. Thankfully I'm feeling better, and quickly got back to crafting.

I have not recently made many cards for friends/family/challenges, since I have been working on wedding placecards for my friend. She is getting married this weekend, and I had the honor of making them! I custom designed the die-cutting file for the "frame" of the card, and made the rest match her invitations- same font; same snowflake image. (and yes, that is my/my husband's card in front!!) I made over 70 of these, which might not seem like much, but you must remember:
1. I work full time, and also teach music lessons afterwards
2. I love spending free time playing video games
3. I'm a perfectionist, and very slow at things that are important!
So you see, this took up a lot of my crafting time. I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things, starting with my post for Our Creative Corner on Saturday...see you then!

One more thing- below is what I was left with after making the place cards...any idea of what I can do with them?

Those place cards are awesome!! And 70 of them.. it seems like a lot to me.
You could use all those wonderful cutouts as matting/backing for a calender project or two or three or...! lol

These are so great! You should go into event planning... As for the scraps, tags are an easy solution, I keep my scraps and use them for punches and such. Thanks for the comments on my post yesterday!

Love the place cards. How creative. as far as the scraps - the sky is the limit - you can make note cards, tops for candy boxes - backs and fronts for candy boxes, on and on If you can do such a fantastic job on the place cards - if you just think for a minute - you can come up with a lot of other ideas. Go for it!
