Anna Griffin thank you card
Every so often I will scower Hobby Lobby, Michael's and JoAnn's clearence bin and see what I can find. Some days I have better luck than others. I usually have better luck right after they have a new shipment of new stuff. Sometimes being inside the city doesn't serve that purpose either... I tend to find better deals outside of the Loop in the suburbs areas.
So, I had picked up a bunch of Anna Griffin's card packs. I don't think they make those anymore. But I picked them up for $2 and it's just fun and I love them. The main reason is that sometimes when I'm in a rut, I can just play around with what is given and hopefully jump start from there.
I had fun playing w/ this set, and I did deviate from their suggestions. It's kinda neat to just not think and follow instructions once in a while. Can I tell you that this project had me revive my Bow Easy? If you don't know what a Bow Easy is, it's the best $5 I've ever spent on a whim. You can see a tutorial here. And I know you can type Bow Easy in YouTube for instructions.
Basically, it guarantees to have perfect bow every time. The little card is small but you can make 7 different sizes bow. The trick, however, is to remember to go over and under the little thingamajig. If you watch the video, you'd understand. Like I said, best $5 I've ever spent.
Anyway, gotta go back to my audit. Have a great day!
