Rejects - Wa Wa Wa

I recently submitted a few cards to Paper Crafts Magazine for the July/Aug publication. I'm not surprised nothing was pick up since let's face it I'm WAY out of the game  having not spent more than about 3 hours total crafting in the last 7 months but I had fun doing it and I've got a few fun cards on hand now. These were my two favorite.

I have a thing for circles so I just love that this watermelon card originates from a circle and every element I used has circles in the paper and washi tape. I cut this out with my Cricut (first time I've use it for a card) and then bent the sentiment to match the curve of the rind. The "seeds" are just washi tape applied to the bottom layer.


I love this stamp and sentiment from Studio Calico. I bought the whole crafting kit because I HAD to have that stamp. It's just plain fun.

I want to give a clarification on my lack of crafting. For years before I had kids people would always comment I only crafted as much as I did because I was childless. I haven't greatly reduced my crafting due to lack of time but rather it's just that I'm tired. The idea of sitting down and really thinking stresses me out so I opt to do something mindless in my free time. As soon as I'm sleeping through the night again and the kids get on a regular napping schedule it's stamping game on again!

People are crazy, Sarah. But you know that :) People wonder at me how I craft with kids - and I didn't when mine were younger & less independent. For being 'out of the game' you certainly haven't lost any of your talent, though :) Can't wait until you have enough sleep to show us more!
