Revamping old cards. . .do you do that from time to time? I have a bunch of cards that I made in the past and when I look at them today, my reaction sometimes is "meh". It's either the layout, the embellishment, the image, or the sentiment that I don't like about the card. But I think . . .what a shame to throw the cards in the junk pile to never be looked at again and what a waste of time and materials to do such a thing.
Sooo. .. .my solution is to grab parts of what I like of certain cards that I've made in the past and create a completely new card. For this card in particular, I didn't like my original layout and the sentiment. Actually, there was no sentiment to begin with. I also didn't like the designer paper that I used for the card so I took part of the background image and pulled it off from one card, took the image from another card, added the embellishment and sentiment. . .whala! a completely new card that I actually like.
I have a bunch of cards that needs a re-do and if I have the mojo to do it this week, I may re-vamp a few more cards.
By the way, we had a little earthquake this morning here in Southern California.. . .a 5.1 magnitude located in Anza, not to far from where I live. My cat got a bit excited and started freaking out a little. . .me, I sort of sat in my chair and decided that the house wasn't going to cave in on me so I didn't do anything. People in California have a tendency to be nonchalant about earthquakes because it happens so often. Anyhoo, I read that it's not a good idea to run out of the house and it's best to stay put inside and go under a table. . .not sure. Maybe I should do my homework in the case the big one happens one day. I actually don't know what to do if a major earthquake occurs. I am so unprepared.
Anyway, that's all for now.
