I travel every week for work. When I’m lucky enough to be driving to my client, as I am now, I try to bring some crafty things to do in my hotel. I often pack a ton of paper items and stamps and ink pads, only to find I don’t have enough time and don’t use it, or don’t feel like dragging it all out. Tonight was one of those nights. I have a bag packed efficiently with lots of CTMH stamp pads, a bunch of stamp sets, the paper trimmer and who knows what else. I just didn’t feel like making a mess at 8pm so instead I decided to just make some ‘halfway’ cards for now and then when I’m home in my comfy craft room I’ll make a mess with ink and stamps.
What I did was last weekend, while I was doing some other things in the kitchen, I cut a ton of various shapes on the cricut on Art Philosophy. I cut full sheets of paper packs, some scraps into shapes, and some cool other papers I had that seemed to match the paper packs I was using. I had absolutely no plan when I did this other than I am going to make cards out of this. So when I felt like doing something creative tonight, but not quite start to finish, I pulled out the shapes:
I just sat and put together a bunch of cards to be. I say to be because I want to stamp them and embellish more but not in this hotel room
This is some of what I did with these scraps (sorry about the quality they are phone pics). More to come when they are complete.
I even cut out a bunch of roses and other flowers so I can add them to coordinate. And then I forgot to pack my tweezers so those will have to go on later.
These took me less than an hour to do and now I can have some fun figuring out what I want to stamp on each and what kind of cards they are each going to become!
