Kick Start Day 1

I think the latest Online Card Class, called Kick Start, couldn’t have come at a better time.  Not being home during the day anymore, and having limited time to craft, I’ve sorta lost a bit of my mojo.  Kick Start is a class that is focused on getting the creativity going, and different ways of finding inspiration.

Day 1’s focus was all about Organizing Ideas.  I am not an organizer of my ideas.  I love to organize everything else around me – my fellow coworkers are always saying how organized I am… although, funny enough, my husband and mother would beg to differ.  Still, never have I been one to write things down.  Instead, I choose the much less effective method of “oh, I’ll have to remember that” – and I never do.  Funny how that works.  So, in the interest of “organizing my ideas”, I created a card sketch book:

Isn’t it pretty.  I made it following Kristina Werner’s instructions here.  I even used it to sketch out the following card:

Day 1

Yay me!  (sidenote: this isn’t an original sketch, it’s based off of one from a previous Online Card Class – Clean and Simple Cardmaking).  Nonetheless, there is a sketch! 

This card was created using Paper Smooches “Healthy Vibes” stamp set and some twinery twine (which I coloured with an E53 copic to tone down the white).  I coloured the band aids with copics (E53, 55, and R22).  The sentiment was stamped with versamark and white heat embossed. 

There we go!  Day 1 homework done.  Off to work on day 2 now!

Until next time!



  1. I really like the sketchbook you made and the card you made. Super cute and pretty! :)

  2. Beautiful Steph. Love the thought processes going on :). I am a bit like you in that I love the ideas I read but never seem to get around in putting it into place...
