Disclaimer: I am suffering from an unfortunate combination of: not enough sleep + too much caffeine + too much sugar, and it is not pretty. I am unable to have a lucid conversation, and my fingers are typing faster than my brain is thinking. I apologize in advance.
Okay, in my continuing quest to use up these scraps, I made a few more cards today. Yes, I am still using the same old scraps I used yesterday, and probably the day before.
I had these two strips of the flowered paper plus the blue layer and the rounded-corner piece, and I thought a circle image would look good to round out (!) all those corners, so I went in search of the right-sized image and opted to use this horse. Can you tell I was getting a little nuts when I added in the Photo Corner pieces? Hey, I had a piece of Celery that was the perfect fit for the punch, and I thought the touch of color was right. I put the large corner up top and the smaller one under the left edge of the sentiment.
I named this photo 'desperation', because that's about where I was emotionally when looking at the remaining scraps. I stuck them to a scrap of white that was not perfect enough to use for anything but a layer anyway, then I cut out some bird shapes with my Bird Nesties. I used them to make the two cards I posted below that I am giving away for a charity auction.
After I was done with those, this is all I have left of those scraps, and I think I can say I am done with them. For now.
On to the Heap Progress Report. Sadly, I see no difference. Let's check it out.
This first shot is the original Heap, all sorted out and orderly.
This is the Heap as of Saturday evening. Except for the poor photography, it looks no different to me.
Here are the original color stacks.
And these are as of yesterday. Eh? Looks the same. Someone at work suggested I should have had a ruler inserted into The Heap (you know, like in snow storms) to better gauge my progress. Now THAT would have been funny!
Here we have the original Neutrals stacks.
Neutrals as of yesterday. Even though ALL the 1/2 sheets of Vanilla have been used, it still looks ... the same. I think the ruler may have helped me here.
Here we have all the patterned papers - SU in back and 'other' in front.
Now they are all mixed up, but largely the same.
The original UFO heap.
And ya know what? I have made over 100 cards since the 12th! 100!!!! Goodness gracious, I may NEVER be done. #2 asked me to slow down so I have some scraps left for next weekend's Field Trip. LOL! Not a problem having some left. Yeesh.
And to answer the inquiring minds as to how I have made so much stuff in the past 2 weeks? Simple: I have no life! I go to work, I come home, I stamp, I go to bed. Repeat. And on weekends, no work, just play. I have no spouse, and the cat does not care. The laundry ain't done. I do not buy food or cook. My place looks like a tornado hit, twice. Nuf?
Now that we've settled that, I think I'll go bag & tag my creations and attack a different piece of paper. Might as well take advantage of this speed I am on while I am still vertical. Thanks for stopping by!
