It's amazing

It's amazing how if you get out of the habit of doing something, it is very hard to get back on track!  This applies for everything from crafting (and blogging) to dieting, exercising, reading, organizing - you name it!  It takes dedication to be consistent.

I was crafting and blogging everyday for a while there and then I didn't do it for one day.  And then two. And then ten.  Whoa.  Happens fast.  Kind of like how my dieting is going. Or not.  Well, I guess the lesson is to just get back after it!

A cold front is coming through here and gift markets are popping up everywhere.  I'm thinking Christmas!  Here are some cards I made using a Jennifer McGuire (www.JenniferMcGuireInk.com) inspired technique.


I took a 6X6 stencil (I think it was the Crafters Workshop) and taped a small portion of it in a triangle shape - hence the Christmas tree image) and used various green (and red) Tim Holtz Distress Inks to make the trees.  Then I used another stencil (a Tim Holtz one) to make the "snow" with texture paste and glitter - so cute in real life! I used the stars from, yep, you guessed it, Tim Holtz.  (The man is a genius in the crafting world!) Finally, I stamped and embossed the sentiment and used pop dots to secure it to the card and provide a little extra dimension.  So fun to make and easy to duplicate - yet still have variety.

Hope you get back to good habits today!
