ACAD – Week 5 – day two

Wednesday Imagine my surprise when I opened that binder to select some scraps and found, basically, a card nearly made in one of the sleeves. Really I just had to cut the word and the circle from some scraps on my desk and stick it all down! Easy peasy.

Thursday – Saturday An odd one! I stumbled across what had to have been a scrapbook layout I planned and never completed. I knew it was unlikely I would ever complete it as a layout – not really a style I would say was mine, certainly not at this time, maybe never, and maybe why I never completed it to begin with! So I cut a window from some scrap card, so I could preview what certain areas might look like as a card front:

Once I decided on the right areas, I cut the three blocks. I pretty quickly made three cards using a large die cut on two and a stamped and embossed them die cut image on the other.

OK so five weeks of cards and I have quite a stash now. Still OMG sooooo much paper and card still to work thru, but I think it makes more sense to abandon the whole a day part. There is soooo much I am working on. I feel like sticking to the weekends to batch make cards makes sense, given the tendency I have to make one, then another from the scraps, and then maybe even one more from those scraps. It seems to be how I work anyway. I’ll still be adding cards on the weekends but keep my time during the week for other projects, like my junk journal, maybe finally getting time to go back to art journaling, and other mixed media fun from the MME challenges. Pretty soon school will be out for the summer and my daughter will be claiming ore of my time, so best to have a plan!
