Less than 10 minutes

 Seriously, each card was less then 10 minutes from start to finish. I can't give a real time since I was sidetracked watching a Video Countdown on TV and playing Chefville (yeah, I know multitasking is bad for your health!) I started my stop watch on the 3rd card hoping it would keep me on track! HUH!!

This is my first. I did it on Sunday. I saw one on Pinterest using that Nautical DP and decided to make something using it too. I had to open the package...yeah that is awful! (here's the card I found)
Grabbed my scrap box and dug out some Not Quite Navy, Basic Grey, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand. Even with guessing at the measurements and creating a layout ( I had to use the ship stamp) it seemed like a fast card. I Pierced around the Cherry Cobbler Die Cut. I cut another piece of Sahara Sand for the inside since my base is Not Quite Navy
Well I love Monochromatic cards so on Monday I decided to make this one. The Base and DP is Rose Red, the image piece and inside is Pink Pirouette
Deciding on the stamp came after staring at the pieces for an hour!  So this card doesn't count for less than 10 minutes! 
Just kidding, I bought Tea Shoppe when it came out and dumb dumb me purchase it in FRENCH! so now I just don't use it much. So I grabbed the little flower out of there, Always Artichoke and Rose Red markers and here ya go!
Well now this morning I decided to time it, started the stop watch on my cell phone....
Got out the DP again, took down my scrap box, got the Open Sea Stamp Set, Soft Suede Ink 
I am disappointed though, I cut the DP so I could have the little Island in the corner, but it got covered up! 
Even with serving up my food on Chefville and looking up a the TV I got this done in less then 10 minutes
 ( 8 something actually )
Anchor DP is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Cherry Cobbler 4 3/4" x 2 3/4"
DP 4 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Not Quite Navy 3 3/4" x 2 3/4" (because that's the size needed for the ledger stamp)
Sahara Sand Ledger piece 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Basic Grey 3 1/2" x 3" (but I cut it with label die so I didn't cut it out first)
I stamped the Ship on a scrap of Sahara Sand then cut it


  1. They are all so fabulous. Isn't it nice when you find a layout that you can use over and over again.

  2. These are really nice. Great layout and each one looks different.

  3. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I
    do think that you ought to publish more about
    this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people don't talk about such topics. To the next! All the best!!
