About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Let it snow!

My crafting mojo has been low this week. I have been quite ill and am going through a round of testing on my gall bladder/digestive system. But, I was able to quickly throw a card together. It is a CAS card and very simple and quick to make.

This is totally made of scrap paper. Just basic white card stock and turquoise card stock. The card base measures 5.5 x 4.25. The next layer is 5.25 x 4 and is adhered with foam tape. I ran this layers through the embosser with the Swiss Dots EF. The Snowflakes were cut from the Cricut and adhered with foam tape. The sentiment is computer generated and cut into a banner by hand. It too is adhered with foam tape.  And TaDa, you are done!
