In Cards/ Punches

Moving Isn’t Easy

June 15, 2019

That’s an understatement.  Moving isn’t easy.

Packing up a stamp room (which I’ll admit I’m very lucky to have enjoyed for the past 17 years) and at the same time, cleaning it up recent messes, isn’t easy.

I’m compelled to complete cards that were prepared for classes.  I’m also moving out of the 2018-2019 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog and into the new and awesome 2019-2020 (can you believe that!?) Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  Catalog transitions can be a mess all by themselves!  Out with the old.  In with the new.  What to keep from the old……

The room had degenerated to ‘messy’ before the catalog transition.

And I’m also preparing for a stampin’ garage sale due to lots of retired products taking up space I won’t have in my new home/stamping space, as well have having to downsize.  Not easy!

Then I keep coming across some lovely cards that I’ve made or almost completed.  Those are the cards I want to share with you today.

Acorn Builder punch Autumn-y card

I loved that Acorn Builder Punch

 

What I found, when cleaning up, was the top two layers.  I simply added a Coastal Cabana card front and the card was finally finished.  This is from how many years ago?  I still love the freshness and colors of this card.

 

This card was finished to the point you see PLUS a smudge.

 

I added a greeting from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and attached it using two Dimensionals for a bit of pop.

 

Part of the reason that moving isn’t easy, and cleaning up and out a stampin’ space, is because of these unfinished cards that just call to me, begging for completion.  And I must answer their call.  I’ve ignored some of them but I know more still await.    I plan on (hope to) offer a Cyber Stamp/Product sale by the end of June.  That’s my goal at any rate.  Back to work!
