Had some play time today . . .

so I made a couple of cards and a cute little bag. Thought the bag would be cute with a pad of paper and a pen in it as a cute little hostess gift . . . although it's not CTMH paper . . .

I went on Paper Crafts website to look around and saw a neat card on their homepage that I thought I would try . . .

I used little pieces of adhesive velcro to close the card:

All CTMH products used (except Prima flower): Friendship Blessings and Say It In Style stamp sets.

But after I finished it I thought that maybe there was too much white space on the front . . . so I made a smaller version in autumn colors. I've never been a fan of CTMH's Just Blooms Autumn Leaves . . personally, I think they are too big and the colors and shapes just don't do it for me. Today, I realized . . I could cut them down and make them smaller . . . I like them MUCH MUCH better now . . . I cut 2 different leaves down to put on this card and I'm sure I'll be using them more often now that I found a way to manipulate them to my liking!! :-)
