Craft or Blog Everyday In June - Day 27

Good Morning Everyone, 

Well it is day 27 which means we are starting to get near to the end. 

Today Kairen has set the theme of: Day 27:  Crafting muck ups, tell us how you got round them OR Craft something that dots

Crafting Muck Ups. 

Well this will be fun. 

1. Card Blanks - I sometimes make my owns card blanks especially 8x8 if I don't want a white card base, I will use two pieces of A4 card, cut them down hinge them together, the first time I did this was for Father Day last year.  I made the 8x8 card matted it up, embellished it and went to town on the cards. (I did two one for my dad one for father in law) I loved the cards, on the morning of Fathers Day I went to put them in their envelopes only to find that they didn't fit. Took a while to work out that an 8x8 will not fit in an 8x8 envelope simple because they are both the same size.. Luckily I had a bit of a thicker white border then I would normally use and I was able to trim them down to get them to fit in.. It suddenly dawned on me that I needed to make my card blanks just slightly shorted then 8x8 for them to fit - you would think a year later I would remember this - but you can probably guess that there is still the odd occasion I muck up and forget. 

2. Upside down and inside out cards are often a regular on my table - I am sure there is little gremlins who run out and switch the card around when I am not looking

3. My favourite one at the moment is to put the inserts in, make the card all nice and pretty and then forget to write in the card, many occasions I have forgotten to write the recipients name in the card never mind who it is from.. 

So a few of my crafting muck ups and they still happen on a regular basis. I really do need to learn to stop doing these haha. 

Thanks for hopping in today See you tomorrow for day 28
