Good Idea Didn't Turn Out

Have you ever had a good idea and in your head it sounded great and you had the whole thing figured out down to every detail. BUT.........when you try to put what you have in your head down on paper it just doesn't work out the way you thought.

That is exactly what happened when I made this card. I was going to uses the sprockets from this stamp set that I have for the circles in the card sketch, but they didn't look very good. So I used the circle punch I have and some of the stickers of sprockets from my Close to My Heart Tinkering collection.

Then I didn't have ribbon to match, then I didn't have the proper diamond die cut I wanted. I was going to used my George and Basic Shapes Cartridge from my Cricut, but I let it to my sister-in-law. So I looked in my other cartridges and found one, but not the one I was looking for. (Your would think for the 28 cartridges I do have there would be a more square diamond shape, but no!)

So needless to say, this card didn't turn out exactly the way I planned in my head. Maybe next weeks Mojo Monday will be a little better for me.

Thanks for listening to my rant, and don't forget to leave a comment on my blog. I love to hear from everyone, both good and bad feedback.

Have a great weekend!!!

Birthday Cake Delicious!

I made a super simple card this week. No it isn't a mojo monday card but that will be coming this week as well. I have added the video to this posting for how I put the card together. There really isn't much to the card but I really like how all of the colors and paper came together.

Don't forget to leave a comment. Thanks and have a great week.

Been Gone Too Long!

Sorry I have been away so long. I have been trying to finish up some very trying weeks with our Swim Club. It seems that my job title gets bigger and bigger as time goes on. Hopefully after we have our executive elections than my plate will get a little less full.

I have returned this week with a new Mojo Monday. I did finish the last 2 weeks as well, but I didn't' get them posted in time. But I finished my card this morning and I am posting it right away. I used the paper pack "Dasher" from Basic Grey. Everything is from the kit other than the string and the brads, which are from Close to My Heart. The cardstock is from an unknown source. It was nothing too fancy for this week. I hope you enjoy anyway. Don't forget to leave me a comment on my blog.
Thanks and have a great week.

Putting Together the Back Country Layout

This is the video for putting together the Back Country Layout from Close to My Heart. It was super easy to put together. It only took me about 1/2 hour after all of the prep work was done. I would say that from start to finish it took me about 1 hour and 1/2 to do. I will post pictures of the other layouts and cards that you get with the Back Country Workshop Guide.

Well my daughters' Swim Club registration night is finally over and I should be able to get life back to normal. HOPEFULLY! I am hoping to return to Mojo Monday next week.

Thanks for watching and have a great week!

New Video!!

This is my first video so I know it isn't perfect but I am proud of myself that I actually did finish it. This is more or less a video introduction and a bit about myself as well as looking at the Close to My Heart Workshop on the Go program. I will also post the video on how to put everything together. Again please leave your comments on my blog if you like what you see.

I unfortunately will not get the Mojo Monday out this week. I have been so wrapped up with getting our Swim Club ready to go for the start of the school year and it has consumed all of my time this week. I will be back on track for next week. I promise.
