Play Date Cafe Challenge #102 - October 6, 2011 - Happy Halloween
Hi! I am posting twice today - I don't know if I will have time tomorrow - since I have lots of running around to do. I saw the inspiration for the Case Study and I started tearing apart my scrappy room - pulling out papers, and Spellbinders, and ribbons. It looks like a tornado hit! It will probably take me longer to clean up than it took to make the card : ) !!
I hate when I pull out a Spellbinder die and it gets lost under all the pop dots, paper remnants and scraps of ribbons! I think I've bought the set of standard circles 3 times now!! I'm thinking about putting a magnet strip somewhere and sticking them to it once I've cut out the shape. I hate of how many times I've looked through the garbage or my paper recycle bag to see if I threw one out by mistake. Maybe you've conquered this problem - if so I'd be happy to hear your solution!
See the thing is that sometimes I cut several shapes with the same size die. For example the card I made today - I knew I wanted a circular image in the center but I wasn't sure which one. So I wound up inking / coloring, and cutting probably 4 or 5 images before I settled with this one (which by the way was the first one I started with). So it is easy to loose those little flat dies in the wake of my creativity.
