Have I mentioned that I need structure? that I need deadlines? I do. It’s genetic. My mother, my brothers, and I have become masters in the art of procrastination. Not to say we’re not responsible or ambitious — we just get wrapped up in so many things at once that without structure, deadlines, some rules — we are overwhelmed and running in circles.
Fortunately, even in the world of papercrafting and cardmaking there are deadlines to be found.
Recently another new favorite stamp company of mine, Verve Stamps, launched a release of its latest and greatest, while also celebrated three years in the business. The cool part (yes — in addition to the great stamps) is that Verve fans were invited to play along. We were given five sketches or layouts of cards, invited to use their stamps and our cardmaking prowess, and yes — we were given a deadline. Did I make it? Well…sort of. I definitely made the cards on time. It was the first-time process of watermarking and uploading to my Splitcoast Stampers gallery that took a little more time — I think I was within five minutes. Either way, good learning experience.
So, wanna see what I made? I’m happy to share. If you want more details about these cards, feel free to visit my Splitcoast Stampers Gallery.
Happy Anni-verve-sary, Verve!
