Hello, again. Not long ago, in A.C. Moore, I found a display of 'not selling well' cartridges for a nice low price. I brought home the Preserves cartridge. Here's what I came up with; I hope to sell some at a sale our apartment house is having.
I made this phote collage with Picasa to show you the varieties I've done so far.
Another great find was this pack of polka-dot papers at Michael's. (Yes, I am lucky enough to have both stores nearby. Plus, a Hobby Lobby opened recently just a slightly longer distance away. My budget is always in danger.)
These are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch cards (A2). The frames are from the Just Because cartridge, cut at 4 1/2 and 5 inch settings (They are not real size but are in proportion to the size of a card cut at those sizes.) Most of the fruit was cut at 3 inches. The orange was cut at 2 1/2 inches (from the grapefruit page because I wanted a slice look.) The watermelon was cut at 1 1 /2 inches.
I made a variety of phrases: thinking of you, thanks, just a note, get well soon, you're in my thoughts. Thanks and notes are blank inside; the others have appropriate sayings that I printed on the computer.
These make up quickly. I'd cut out 2 or 3 at a time and assembled them while watching TV.
I'm happy with them; I hope you like them, too.
