It is January 11th...11 days into the resolutions. Time sure does fly when you are resoluting! Every year I always have several resolutions and 2014 is no exception. Here are my crafty resolutions for 2014:
- Finish at least one Christmas card by the 25th of each month
- Become a more organized crafter (I could not help but chuckle when I decided that on the 1st...and when I just typed it...LOL)
- Ensure that the inside of a card is complete before moving on to the next project
- Don't be afraid to use the pretty cherished paper or ribbon
Well, so far I can say I am have accomplished item 1 (high fives to myself), item 3 (you go girl!) and part of item 2 (insert applause here). I am so rocking the resolutions!
One action on my "organize to do list" was to find a way to record the colors and product I have from the Tim Holtz Distress lines. Last weekend I spent several hours on that project. Here is a sample:
For each color in the TH color world I made a card. The card had a punched flower for the stain, a 1.5" square for the ink, a 1.5" crinkled square for the ink, a piece of seam binding stained, and on either side of the ribbon is a spot for the distress marker. I can easily see what I have for product in specific colors and I can also easily match the TH colors to each other or to patterned paper. For some colors I am missing the stain (gasp!) or marker (oh no!) so the flower, ribbon or marker scribbles could not be added.
I think it was well worth the time and I have already referenced the cards a few times. :)
What are your crafty resolutions? Have you completed any cool crafty organization? I am all up for ideas!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
