The first thing that I noticed was that great stack of layered items over on the right which really appealed to me, and seems to be something that is very effective while remaining simple.
When I looked through my papers and Christmas bits, I found a pile of themed embellishments. This is just the kind of thing I am looking to use up on my cards as I don't really use these types of items on my layouts and they are not really my style any more. But they are still cute which makes them perfect on cards - maybe these will go to the younger members of the family.
I decided to just go for it and make up 5 cards at once - all following the same design and using up these Doodlebug papers, stickers and jellies as well as a few other pieces in the same colour scheme.
Simple, quick and done! Can't get better than that.
It makes me happy to see this type of product being used up and stops the guilt of having stuff that is just sitting there.
One of these weeks I am going to go for something über-elegant, á la Deb but for now, happy to see my pile of cards growing.
