Back in the Saddle

I like to fancy myself a crafter. I'm nowhere near as crafty as my friend W., but I can hold my own when it comes to scrapbooking and cardmaking. Lately, though, crafting has lost its magic. I blame it on the demise of locally owned scrapbook stores. The chain places never have as much variety, don't promote the latest techniques and, well, aren't usually staffed with the friendliest people. That's why I have a pile of projects to work on and no motivation to do so.

However, Saturday, while shopping (at a locally owned scrapbook store in Lima) with W., I found these adorable Bazzill Basics In Stitch'z templates. It was all I could do to limit myself to two sets. I got letters and flowers, although the Christmas ones were calling my name.

I'm going to make some cards this weekend using my new toys. Sometimes all it takes is a new technique/project/tool to get me back in the crafty swing of things.
