Rejection Time



Well... it is that time... time for me to post some of my rejects! :) I have a bunch so... here is two of them. I have like 3 or 4 calls worth of rejects that I need to post and since I haven't made anything new to share... seems like the perfect time to get started!

I have been working on stamping all of my stamps in my index binder. I have put it off because it is just so overwhelming but I am making progress so I want to continue. I feel like it will help with my creativity process when I am done. I won't forget what stamps I have because I can just look through my binder and see!! Now.. if I could only do something similar with all the embellishments, etc that I have! :) I think I just have too much stuff!

Anyway.... hope you are all enjoying your Sunday! Ours has been great so far. Carver is napping and I think I am fixing to. Just wanted to pop on and post for a second!

Cute cards, Kelley! I love those bright little trees! Having a great Sunday here...it's snowing and I've had time to craft! :D

Such cute cards Kelley! I need to come see you sometime soon! The added bonus of coming to see you would be to see your crafting room and to get ideas on organizing (because knowing you and your organizational skills I'm sure you've got a pretty good process)!
Maybe sometime towards the end of January? If I don't "put it on my calender" I won't ever make it! LOL! But seriously, I love both of these cards!

These are great! I really like the 'Thanks' stitched card! I hope you show us the binder idea, when your done. I need to get more oraganized with my craft stuff, I did get rid of alot of my old craft stuff about a month ago. It feels good to get rid of it! :)

Wow, I love these cards! Your stitching is fab!! I am trying to organize my stuff, too - but I can`t see any progress ;) I decided to print the images of my stamps from the manufacturers` sites to put them into a binder. I already printed two pages... haha! I`ll be finished in about 2 years!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Adorable cards!!! I too am in the middle of organizing my stuff and some other areas of our home...and I have tiny anxiety attacks here and there!! lol

Courtney Baker said...

Very cute on both! I love the stitching.

These are both so darling Kelley. I'm sorry that they weren't accepted. Great idea on stamping all your stamps. I should do something like that.

I see you keep sending your submissions to the blind publishing groups...geez Kelley :)

I really need to make a stamp binder! Maybe I'll stick that on my to-do list...if I ever get through the one I have for Christmas. I was thinking of painting my bedroom over Christmas break. I don't know if I'll have the energy after I get everything done :)

Ohhhhhhhhh......so your a good girl who indexes, huh?! lol I did that way back when, when I started stamping and then I go overwhelmed with the number of stamps I have. sigh....but, happy sigh. I tend to remember my images pretty well, but I think indexing would really help me remember what sentiments I have. Hmmmm...motivation...motivation....come on motivation!!! Bummer....no motivation sparks quite yet....but that would probably have something to do with the fact that I don't have presents wrapped yet, a living room that is torn apart (and I do mean TORN APART!....some ants came marching in...all the way across the living room to get to the Christmas tree...we had to pull furniture away from the walls to finally figure out where they were coming from! Guess I should consider myself lucky that we rarely get them and that's why it was such a fiasco figuring out how to deal with the little critters late last night! But, I digres...yup, yup, I'm good at that!) Good for You for indexing those stamps!!!!!! Let us know if it does help you out and maybe I might see a spark in my motivation to index department! :>:>:>

Rejects??!! Oh my, Kelley!! The first thing I thought of when I saw your cards was, "HAPPY!" Yup, yup, all those happy colors!!! I think they're great! :>
