Hello! Well, there has been a lot happening with me lately… finals, a trip to Ireland (yep, I met the lovely and wonderful Claire Brennan! YAY!–highlight of the trip!!!), a new computer, a new semester, a new job, my Cecropia caterpillar hatched into a moth, and that is all that I can think of right now. Oh, and I have been stamping up a small storm. More on all of this to follow bit by bit in the near future!
I am using my old camera for these next few posts. I left my lenses that I brought on vacation over at my parent’s house. Sorry, these pictures are a bit off. I forgot to adjust my AWB.
I finally found the time to use the templates Lauren has been creating over at My Time Made Easy. These are a piece of cake to whip up with an electronic cutter, especially if you follow the directions ;)!!!! The template I used here is Card Catch All.
The stamps I used are Flourishes’ Life, Love and Lemons and PTI’s Recipe Box and Fruitful Sentiments. I used standard 4x6 recipe cards. They happened to coordinate with my project perfectly.
I adjusted the next photo for white balance. Sorry, this pic is mainly for my own benefit so please bear with me.
On the front mat, I cut out two of the lemons and leaves and popped them up on foam tape for dimension.
I punched out the recipe card divider labels using two punches…I think 1 3/8 and 1 1/4. I had stamped each label twice, once in black and once in Simply Chartreuse. I finished them off with epoxy dome stickers.
Ooops! My big head caused the shadow in this next shot. I stamped the lemons on sticker paper, colored them, and cut them out. It made putting them on the recipe cards a snap.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
