so much to learn. . .
though i've been scrapbooking for about seven years now, i've only been cardmaking for about seven months. although they have a lot in common, the more cards i make the more i see that they're worlds apart. there are so many tools and products i would have never purchased or already had and didn't use, or have learned how to use in new ways. it like falling in love with a new-old hobby all over again.
this weeks hero arts challenge was to make a card using glitter. super fun for me since i love all things shiny and sparkly. plus it gave me a change to try out two new things.
1. the coluzzle (a circle cutter by provo craft. i believe this product is now retired, it's super hard to find, if you want one i suggest looking on ebay)and 2. vellum!
my circle card has a cute little vellum window that let's you peek inside at the greeting and adorable penguin.
and because it'll make me feel better to know that i'm not the only one who feels like there's so much about this hobby i'm still learning. leave a comment letting me know what tool you've just learned to use, or a technique you've just begun using :)
