Don’t Reinvent the Wheel

There are times I need a card and I have absolutely no inspiration.  I spend hours searching online only to find that I just saved sixteen dog related pins, a gluten-free cookie recipe, and watched a video on how to organize a refrigerator.  Today, I needed a few Thank-You cards and, instead of browsing the internet, I decided to copy a card I made earlier this week.

For some recent online challenges I created a simple Bright & Sunny Thoughts card using an overlay.  I enjoyed the look of that overlay, so I decided to create another one, this time with Gold Foil paper and a Gold Embossed sentiment.  The first card was created using White Daisy cardstock, but, even though I like the simplicity, I like the combination of Pink & Gold on second card much more.  Both cards turned out wonderfully, and I didn’t have to reinvent a design – I just used what I already had in my book of tricks.

Speaking of book… if you love not having to “reinvent the wheel” you should check out our new Make It From Your Heart™ Volume 4 Idea Book.   This How-To Book fits inside our Everyday Life™ albums and includes 24 amazing card patterns.  You can view more of what this How-To Book has to offer at the Make It From Your Heart Blog.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to card making.  All you need to do is pull from your own imagination and use a few simple tools like our How-To Books.  I can’t wait to see what you create!
