A Few Changes......

Starting from Tomorrow, I will be trying out a few changes on my Blog.....

I need to make the most of my Crafting time, so I'm going to experiment by keeping to the following ideas on certain days. I have seen a few other Bloggers do this and hopefully it will make me a bit more organised with what craft projects I have to show you.

I'm going to try it for a month, So Please leave me a comment if you like my posts sorted like this.....

MONDAY:- Making the Most of your SU Punches

I hope to show you lots of tips and ideas of making the most of all your Stampin UP Punches, either ideas I use them for or other crafters ideas which I have come across.

TUESDAY:- Two Card Tuesday

I will make two cards the same layouts and stamp sets, showing you what they look like in two different colourways. Sometimes just by changing your colour choices the stampsets look completely different.

WEDNESDAY:- Midweek Mini

On Wednesdays I will be making Mini Cards, these are so cute. You can change them so quickley into Gift Tags.

THURSDAY:- Tutorial Thursday

The Tutorials will show you step by step How to do a Project or Technique. Starting tomorrow.

FRIDAY:- Forgotten Stamps

I will pick a stamp set I haven't used in a long time and show you what I make.

SATURDAY:- Sketch Layouts

There are tons of Card Layouts on Splitcoast stampers, Beates, Julies and lots more.... I will pick one and make a card or something using the sketches.

SUNDAY:- Sharing Stampers

While Blogging I always come across so many other crafters that I admire their work, So on Sundays I am going to pick one and share them with you.

Back to the Mini Card above.

The stamp set is Hung up on Holidays. I have only just mounted this cute stamp set and for the life of me, Don't know why I side stepped this stamp set. The base card is 14.8cm x 7.4cm which is the size of all my mini cards I seem to make. You can get 4 from a piece of A4 cardstock, with a strip left over ideal for punching.

I punched out 2 scallop circles, one in Creamy Caramel and one in Chocolate Chip. I mounted them on top of each other and pricked in each of the scallops on the behind one. I then punched a Real Red 1 3/8 circle, layered this behind the Gingerbread man, isn't he Cute? I stamped him in Creamy Caramel and punched him out using the 1 1/4 circle punch. The ribbon is Kraft Taffeta. The sentiment is from the Occasional Greetings stamp set.

Well there you go,
I will be showing you a Tutorial on this Stamp set Tomorrow, So until then,
Thanks for looking and Listening to me,

Well Jenny, seems an excellent idea to me. I will try and keep up - Huh, that'll be the day. Loved your class last night with one of my favorite stamp sets - Lovely as a tree. Can't wait until the next one. In the meantime carry on with your new idea for your blog.

Hi Jenny,

I love your organizing idea. Love your work. I have you in Google Reader so if I don't have time each day I can look at several days at once. Good luck! And you might want to lose that extra "s" in Occasional-LOL!
