Well, I survived a day walking around the booths at the Heirloom Productions event today in Grapevine, Texas. Over the years this event like the Scrapbook convention in June, has gotten smaller and smaller with less vendors participating. Of course for us die-hard crafters we will always be there to see what we can get. I left with a decent haul but not near as much as I usually do, so that leads me to believe that either I have everything that I need or my budget won't support everything that I want!!! Figure which one of those is true, although with a little bit of thought, I truly believe both are true statements.
This time my focus was on dies and embossing folders and I actually stayed within my list and only went about $6 over budget...trust me that was a joy to know that I could stay on a budget! Yipee! Well after leaving the convention I hurried home to of course play with my new toys and to run a few cuts to see how well they cut on the first pass. Of course Cheery Lynn's dies always cut clean especially if you use the metal adapter (I love that piece of metal)!!
After playing and cutting I decided to use some of the pieces I had cut to create a card and here is what I came up with as my first card. I still have additional pieces that need a home so they will come in a later post. I hope you will enjoy my creation and leave me your thoughts.
