Ok so first you are probably wondering what the heck an UFP is. Well it is what I am calling my UN-Finished Projects. We’ll get to that in a little bit.
First up is shopping trip, just because it was so fun finding these little treasures today, especially after it being an aggravating morning. Retail therapy is always nice and especially so when it is crafting goodies. I had received an ad in email earlier in the week telling me that Tuesday Morning would have some new Tim Holtz and Sizzix things put out today. Coincided nicely with the cruddy morning happenings lol.
In this picture we have a nice paper pack by DIY Shop. There is some great paper in there like rulers, wood-grain, ledger pages etc. I think these will look really cute in a mini album. (I’ve been watching a lot of Mini Album instruction videos the past couple days. Love those!) These usually go for $20 at places like Hobby Lobby etc. and even when they are on sale 50% off they still cost more than the $7.00 I spent. haha. I found another packet of the mixed media papers, they had them at 10% off so I got it for $3.19. Next is some cute recipe cards I can use for journaling spots marked down from $8.00 and on sale for a final price of .59 cents. Some cute 7 Gypsies map chipboard alphabet for $2.00, packet of 25 sheets of paper for $1.99 (I laugh every time I buy these since I know even buying a SINGLE sheet from one of the other stores ON SALE would still cost me 25 cents, and I got 25! lol). Last but not least is what I was promised to find by the add is a lovely packet of Tim Holtz embossing folders. One is a bingo card and the other is random things and is called Patchwork. These go for $10.99 and I got them for $4.99. They had several other ones and also the die cuts but I didn’t see any that insisted I take them home. One thing not in the picture was a three pack travel style washi tape on sale for .39 cents.
This next picture is the goodies I was not expecting to find but made me all giddy. The center section and the bulk of the pile are products from Inkssentials by Ranger. Top left of that area are two of each color of foil tape. (silver, gold, copper) These lovely tapes go on the sides of the frosted glass slides you see directly below them. The tapes I got for $1.99 each and the slides were only .99 cents. (regularly $5.50 and $6.00). Next to those on the right are Memory Frames. These allow you to make cute little charms, ornaments, or even necklace by adding memorabilia filled slides inside the pre-made frames. Two different sizes were $1.99 each. On the far left side are some pink slide frames. That is actually a three pack of items. The frame is the top, under that was a packet of star shaped eyelets in Christmas colors and the bottom packet was plastic circle charm things with Spring sayings on them. These were marked down and on sale for a final price of .39 cents each. WOW huh lol. Far right side is our final items. These are the T shaped pins used for sewing but I thought they might be handy in crafting since they were pre-colored blue and green. They were bundled three to a tag for only .99 cents.
Ok now on to the UFP’s. I found these cards half done in my stash, left side, ignore the card on the right since I haven’t decided yet on that one. I was still trying to decide what to do with the little blue rectangles I had added the thank you stickers to. Did some digging around in my papers and found one that worked perfect.
So here are the finished cards, I made 14 of them. Something new for me, I wrote down what I used to make the cards. A friend of mine does this on her blog and I figure its a nice way to let people know in case they want to try and rush out to find something to buy lol. So the “perfect paper” I found was the paisley called Cowboy Paisley by Chatterbox Inc. (found this awesome paper in an entire 25 sheet pack from Tuesday Morning!) I put that on some random card-stock in my stash, its kind of a dark green although you cannot tell very well in the picture. It was one of the colors in the paisley paper. I also cut some pieces of textured card-stock (also random brand and color in the paisley) in a burnt orange color. I distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz inks in Tea Dye color. I used a decorative corner punch on the blue “thank you” part to make it prettier. After adding all the paper parts to the card I added a double layer of mulberry paper flowers by Prima with a Recollections Faux pearl sticker to the center.
Turned out pretty cute and I’m glad to have marked a UFP off my list!
Hope everyone has a great crafting week!
