Hello dear friends, well another year is almost gone, and 2013 is quickly approaching. Are you going to make some New Year resolutions this year? I am LOL! Here are just a few:
1. Quite biting my fingernails.... (I say this every year.)
2. Be a lot better about blogging, and not save everything for the last week of each month. ;)
3. With regard to crafting, step outside my comfort zone, and work with more than just paper.
4. Start a workout routine, and become more physically fit.
5. Continue working on relationships with family and friends.
I think that should do it LOL! I'm pretty confident about three of the five, we will see.
Today's project was fun to make, because I love making vintage projects. This is the first time I've used Spellbinders Card Creator Matting Basics "A", and Matting Basics "B". They truly make card making much easier, with regard to doing a lot of layering, and I love piling on the layers. If you haven't tried them you should :) Lately I really like using the Krylon Gold Leafing Pen, I think it helps add a little something extra to any project. I also wanted to mention that I cut my seam binding in half so it wouldn't be as wide, so I could thread it through the lace. NOTE: Cut Seam Binding will fray a lot, in this case I didn't care, because it added to the vintage look.
Well, that's it for now, I will be back real soon... Remember you can click on the pictures for a better view, and all supplies are listed below with links.
