A Little Bit of Work Flow

Happy Friday!

A little off the regular path today....but I wanted to show you my work flow when I have a large project ahead of me.

I needed to make birth announcements for a friend of mine.  Her sweet little boy was born last month.

So here is my secret:  I do everything in steps and then assemble the final projects.

So first I designed the tag in Photoshop Elements and then cut out each tag using my craft knife.  Next I cut pieces big enough for a matching green mat.  My final cutting used a die to make the green reinforcers.

Next I adhered all the tags to the mats and then trimmed around each.  Once that was done, on went the reinforcers and then finally (in front of the TV) I tied the little baker's twine to each tag.

So while this project sat out on my table all day - it didn't take hours upon hours of working on it.  I just did a little here and there while I got other things done too.

I recommend this method if you have a large task to accomplish.  Trimming and assembling in front of a good movie is also one of my tricks!!

I'll be back tomorrow with a fun card I made with Stampendous stamps.

See you then.
