Ten highlights of 2011

Inspired by Shimelle's 10 things on the 10th, here are some spend less, craft more highlights . . .

  • Increased confidence in combining colours (largely thanks to ColourQ)
  •  Enjoyed finding lots of ways to use my never-ending supply of offcuts
  •  Learnt how to add interest to my pages by using sketches
  •  Learnt (much later) that sketches don't have to be followed exactly and can be s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d!
  •  Discovered that small patterned and tone-on-tone patterned papers are the most versatile papers to have in your stash
  •  (and thankfully  managed to find ways to use some larger patterns)

  •  Loved using some older supplies, especially when mixed with newer ones
  •  Really, really, really loved my new Silhouette machine
  •  Stopped waiting for a "special enough" page to use the stickers and embellishments I have been hoarding in my stash.

  • And most of all, focussed on what inspires me to create, not what inspires me to spend!

I look forward to more highlights in 2012!
