Prompt, I Am Not

I've been meaning to get these out for a bit now. They're some well-deserved and overdue thank yous. Time seems to slip so easily once school starts and the hustle of shuffling kids comes back into play.

I love how, when I'm making cards, each one transforms just slightly and I learn something new with each one. Simple things such as what attaches where and in what order to give the best presentation.

The materials for these cards were all in stash, so I'm only going to mention the ones I'm certain of.

Rub Ons: LOVE Rusty Pickle rub-ons. Kaiser Craft rub-ons, not so much. Both of the sentiments seen here are Rusty Pickle. I used a Kaiser Craft sentiment on the inside of one of the cards. They were just not as good of a quality, in my opinion. The Rusty Pickle ones were easier to keep in position and apply. I didn't have to guess if it was burnished on well enough, it was obvious. With the Kaiser ones, I got to burnish good and hard and long before they adhered to the card, and it wasn't obvious when they had released from their original sheet. Both brands look great once you get them on.

Prima Flowers: All the flowers here are Prima. I just ADORE the pixie tin flower brads(also Prima) used for the centers.

Brads and Eyelets: All the other brads and eyelets are from Making Memories.

Papers and Cardstock: EK Success and Basil cardstock. I'm not sure who made the other papers I used. I LOVE the fiber papers though.
