Blackberry Bliss Mojo!

Posted on

My goodness, here it is only Tuesday morning and I’m already posting my Mojo Monday. Perhaps I’m finally in tune with this summer vacation now that it’s coming to an end, lol! Here is my card.

Mojo358 - Blackberry Bliss - JIF

And here is this week’s sketch.

Mojo358SketchAs it happened, this DSP from the Park Lane Series was sitting on my desk yesterday. It was intended for a scrapbook page but never used. As I put the DSP away I looked again at the pattern and this card all but made itself.

There’s the smallest of borders in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock behind the DSP and another strip of it just below the center of the card. Instead of using scallops behind this strip I used the cardstock “off-cuts”, the negative pieces, after creating the scallop border.

Onto the Smoky Slate Cardstock I stamped in Smoky Slate Classic Ink a stamp from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set. The sentiment inside the On-Film Framelits die-cut in Blackberry Bliss Cardstock is from the Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set.

The Open Sea on Sweet Sorbet!

Posted on

As I’ve mentioned MANY times before, having being born beautiful instead of rich (yes, I can laugh at myself – although these days it’s more jiggling than giggling) I tend to save EVERYTHING. Eventually it all becomes useful.

My size determiner is the usability of the products. Ribbon for example have to be long enough to either fit across a two-inch wide tag which thus in-turn makes it’s large enough to be used on the end of sentiment, tag or such.

Open Sea - Ribbon Scraps - JIF

For cardstock and DSP, my smallest punch is the determiner. Thus if I can put a scrap into a punch – I save it. Note the small punched circle on the tag above, seriously who wants to lose a sheet of fresh cardstock to that small-fry?!

As exemplified on the card below, the scrap doesn’t even have to fit the punch completely. Don’t you just love the Sahara Sand Cardstock which compliments this sheet of DSP from Sweet Sorbet perfectly?
