In my continuing quest to use up a whole pack of 6x6 paper, I went into The Captain's Quarters today to tackle the remnants:
I had an idea, but then I got distracted, but I did use up almost all of what you see, resulting in 15 cards. I'll show you a sampling.
First, I went with yesterday's theme from Linda's card and made two like this:
Then I started layering the 2" pieces onto black and cutting them too short, like this:
I have a "don't be like me" story for you. See those banners:
I thought I was being SO SMART by not trimming them until after they were put onto the card. Again, I was stamping without a net and had NO idea what I'd do for a sentiment, so in my mind it was smarter to not trim the banners until I knew how short to make them. In theory, there is some logic in there, somewhere.
Trust me when I tell you they would be much, much, MUCH easier to trim before they are stuck down. I was a little excited while applying the adhesive when I stuck the strips to the horizontal pieces and it ran over so when I put them onto the card fronts, some of the banners were stuck down. Yeah, next time I might plan better. Or not.
Here's the black version:
In total, I made 15 more cards for OWH, and this is all I have left of that 6x6 pad of Urban Prairie paper:
That reminds me of an old Hi and Lois comic. Remember them? The mom asked Ditto (of the Dot and Ditto toddler twins) if he'd eaten all the cookies. He said, "No." The mom said, "Well, there's only one left; here, you can have it." He took it outside to eat, then he smiled and said, "NOW I've eaten them all." HAHA!
On that note, I shall leave you to get back to your lives. I'm kinda glad all that paper is gone. With the long weekend (I took Monday off), I may need to disappear another pack. We'll see.
Thanks for stopping by!
