So those cards I was going to make on Tuesday?? Today, I got to make them (!) during a lovely late-morning/early-afternoon scrapbooking session with Faithful Blonde.
I started by sorting through the box of die-cuts. Mom had given this pack to me last year, and at first, I wasn't sure about them. But the more I looked through them, the more I liked them and felt confident I could do something fun with them.
I was also excited that all of the paper I used came from my "home supply" - with the patterned sheets from a pack of Creative Memories Halloween paper that Faithful Blonde had given me a couple of years ago, and the solid sheets from my folder of cardstock that I keep on hand. It was quirkily rewarding to successfully match up products from different lines!
And yes - light purple can be a Halloween color.
I even used some common sense to create a better accent (on the bottom) out of two individual accents (on the top). Much better!
A few hours, lots of good conversation with Faithful Blonde, and twelve cards later, I surveyed my work and liked what I saw:
Hopefully, everyone who's receiving one will like them, too.
