Mojo Monday


Ok, so I know this was last week's sketch, but I didn't get to it until the weekend! I had decided that I wanted to try my hand at glitter again after a few tips were given on the PTI forums last week.

So, I used my scor tape and I LOVED the results! It was so much easier! I also used a paint brush to swipe off the excess glitter and it was perfect. My heart stamps weren't big enough to fill up the space, so I did something a bit different and used all buttons to create my heart. This was a bit different for me, too, because I normally am only a 2 layer girl and I actually used three on this one. White, Smokey Shadow, and the hearts paper from DCWV Seasons pack.

So, here's my question. Those big honkin' packs of paper (like the one I used here)...does anyone ever use all of the paper? I guess if I weren't only doing cards, it may be easier, but I have had one pack for over 4 years and it doesn't even look like I put a DENT in it! I keep telling myself that I won't buy any more paper until I use that stuff up (I have 3 12x12 packs of different paper), but it seems neverending!



Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Paper - White, Smokey Shadow, DCWV Seasons dp
Stamps - Mega Mixed Messages
Ink - Pure Poppy
Other - Corner Rounder, Raspberry Fizz and Pure Poppy Vintage Buttons, Raspberry Fizz Saddle Stitch Ribbon, MS Candy Apple Glitter, Scor Tape

Liz I {heart} this card! Im going to give this a try because Im always looking for ways to use up my buttons.

I won't buy anymore of those 12x12 stacks of paper. I try to buy only the smaller sizes pads (8x8 from PTI or 6x6 from other companies). And if I really LOVE the design, I'll just buy the single sheet of 12x12. But really I need to stop buying pp - I have too much already!

I love that button heart! It is a great card and hard to believe the only thing stamped is the sentiment.
