Not QUITE back to normal around here yet…soon, soon.
But I was reminded by Julia that the next crop is one where most people abandon scrapbooking and make their Christmas cards. I don’t really do cards never really have, except for the kids to give out to school friends, so I just carry on with whatever project I happen to be working on. This month it might end up being finishing off the knitting of the dreaded second sock (and DO NOT tell me I should do the two-at-one on a huge circular needle) and grafting the toes of both. See how far along I am?
But that isn’t what you came here to see, is it?
Two sizes – the smaller ones fit comfortable inside a 2″ punch:
and the larger ones can be cut with a variety of circles – I happened to use the Nesties from the large and small standard circles sets:
You can see that you can get a larger and a slightly smaller one next to each other:
Check your own dies and see what works best.
I started out a few weeks back making a much more richly coloured set but it had issues:
The circles JUST fit in the 2″ punch so you had to be sure careful about placement or cut off the edge of the stripe-y frame, and the red and green had a chalkboard effect – that made the file HUGE (almost 10 mb and even using the Quartz filter to reduce the file size only took it down to about 8 mb. I may still make a richer version but aim to get the size down. I think they will be cute as card toppers or back-to-back (or with a solid cardstock back with room for writing and the date) as a small hanging ornament, or even as a gift tag.
