Operation Write Home - Shipment 3
I made 70 cards this time out. I only to get craft on the weekends, so it took me 2 weekends to make 70 cards. Normally I try to make about 100 cards but I fell short. I do know that some cards are better than none at all. It makes me feel like I am doing my part for those who are deployed can send their loved ones cards with their own personal message inside in their own handwriting. I make so many cards that I have slacked off on my page layout. I have decided to do Project Life this year with a twist. I plan to start tracking "my year" with the date of my Hubby's departure. He will be leaving for a year and I want to chronicle that year for him to review when he returns home. I used a lot of different stamps (stamps of lie, Becky Higgins, Hero Arts, Penny Black and Recollections). I also used my cricut (Art philosophy, Artiste, craft room basics, best friends) I also used my favorite punches from Stampin Up (small scallop circle, modern label and oval). I have been sticking to my guns not to buy any more paper until I dwindle my stash down to half. All of the base cards are either Bazzill or Recollections. The decorative sheets are either MME, DCWV and Recollections. I stuck with my standard inks of Memento and Stampin Up. They have become my favorites to use when stamping. Next weekend I will start another batch of 50 cards.
