A little bit of this and that...

I had some computer and internet issues that kept me offline quite a while today so I was able to work on some projects that are due soon without interruptions.  I will try to catch up on emails and questions tomorrow.   I also puttered around the craft room a bit trying to tidy up but actually making even more of a mess as I pulled out various supplies to "audition" for a few things I am working on.  How can it be possible to have this much paper and still not have exactly the right shade?

The photo at the top of this post shows my new deep edge punch used to make a pretty notecard.  This is so simple - just center the punch and work your way out to either side, then add a liner to show off the border (and give you a place to write).  Here is a LINK to my earlier post about this punch.

This is the offcut from one of my projects.  I almost recycled it (I have been trying to teach myself to stop saving everything!) but I had an idea for a way to use it so it went into the "someday" pile.

More offcuts and pieces of another project that involves a lot of squares (and a lot of folding...).

We had a nice lunch with my husband's parents yesterday and on the way home we made a quick stop at Michael's to see if they had any of the new cartridges in stock yet.   No new cartridges, but I found an EK Success border punch with a tiny holly design.  When punched fully, it creates a paper ribbon.

With some careful planning, you could make an interesting combination for a card or scrapbook page border.

A few people asked about the frame I showed in the post about grouping files with the Gypsy (here is a LINK).  I just need to test the cut (it previews fine but I always test files before posting them).  I will also try to do a video showing how to make this sort of frame - it has been a while since I made any Design Studio videos and people keep asking for more!

I have several bigger projects to share but just didn't have time to do all of the photos and write them up today so "watch this space" to see what I have been up to!
