Lost in procraftination

I often think that too much craft stash can be a bad thing, although I have bought with good intention on using it straight away then something crops up with the mini-me and I get totally sidetracked in her drama.

But good crafting comes to those who wait and I am always relieved when I get to stand at my desk to craft.

I found this technique on youtube called inlaid die cut words.  If you search Jennifer Mcguire she has some brilliant tutorials on how to do this. I made this one for my Husbands birthday last week as it wasn't too feminine or too masculine, it was just right as we had only just got married two weeks before so it's his first card as a married man, but to be honest I do make him cards all the time just because.
There are so many tutorials on youtube and I find this a great resource when I get crafters block.

What I would like to do is to get back into using ribbon and gems and buttons and other embellishments as the new products that are coming out now only seem to require sequins or liquid drops. It's hard not to want to cram everything onto one card but I do like simplicity also just like the card above, all it needed was some wink of Stella and that's that.

Well that's enough from me but I do have a backlog of blogs so you may see me later
