Firstly let me say a big thank you to those who've told me they're planning something already! I'm really looking forward to starting pinning your postal-posts! [Try saying that fast 3 times!].
If you're still pondering about joining in then you might be interested to know I edited the introductory post to add in the fact that I'm more than happy for you to combine the postal theme with any other ongoing project or blog-challenge entry out there.
For example, if you follow a sketch-blog - as long as your sketch-project features a postal item/theme somewhere you can enter the sketch challenge and 'Going Postal' with one project.
OK ... enough admin ... on to the craftiness and my stampy, scrappy greetings cards:
These came about, as so often the best ideas do, entirely by accident.
I'd been sorting through the pizza box filled with the Crafty Templates Quirky Scrapbooking kit which I'd been guest designing with when I came across some small snippets of paper I'd cut out when I created the micro-mini-book I blogged about here last month.
Despite some of the scraps being quite tiny I'd held on to them [rather than dropping them in the recycling bag] as they were still so pretty and interesting. There were several of them floating around the bottom of the box and I just began moving them around, matching-up and contrasting colours:
I then mounted them onto CoreDinations cardstock, which I'd sanded around the edges to reveal the lighter core-colour beneath.
It's a really simple, satisfying way to use up scraps and I think they'd work well framed, as well as being posted ... or even afterwards. Hopefully someone will like it enough to pop a frame around it!
Thanks for reading.
I hope the weekend brings you something good in the mail!
