Cut and Paste

Hi there, 

I am avoiding finishing my Valentines...I have no idea why and they need to be in the mail no later than Friday.  In the mean time I was doing a little cleaning and straightening in the crafty space.  I tend to go immediately to organizing when I am avoiding things...I did it while I worked and I still do it.

I was putting away a package of card stock I had gotten from Close to My Heart. There are several sheets of two sided papers all 12X12.  I buy them for scrapbooking.  There are some amazing patterns and papers and I do LOVE paper.  In each pack there are 2 sheets of designs intended for those pocket scrapbook--or use compartmentalized sheet protectors.  I have always found these to be a waste for me...but I haven't thrown them out.  Its two sheets and one side has the images in portrait orientation, the other side in landscape orientation.

I wish I had taken a photo before I started cutting up this set, but I did take a photo of it from the catalog.

Those designs are not my cup of tea for scrapbooking...but I think they made some darned cute little note cards about 3.5 inches square.  I added only the card bases and the bling in the form of glitter tape and some enamel hearts and dots. 6 cards out of  2 pages destined for the trash bin - I say that is a save.

Thanks for stopping by!
