A Success and A Miss

Meet my success from the other day.

My Easter cards! I had the patterned paper for the longest time and I finally decided to use it. It isn't really my style because I don't really like pastels. But since pastels and Easter go hand in hand, I figured I'd use it for all my Easter cards. Then it would be gone and I wouldn't have it sitting in my collection for the next 6 years. The card in the center actually has glitter on that stripe. It looks much better in person. The one on the left is a spinner card! My very first! I used the tutorial from Scrappin' with My Bug. Its actually really easy. I did it in one try!

Now on to my miss.

I recently bought a bunch of tiles at the home improvement store for 39 cents a piece. I looked around on the internet until I saw this. Etched coasters! It seemed easy enough and I had all the supplies so I gave it a shot! It was so easy. The hardest part was waiting for the etching cream! I think my tile turned out okay but next time I do it I need to use more etching cream. You can't tell in the picture but theres some spots where the etching isn't as good. I do like the effect though and I can't wait to do it again!

Well thats all for now! I'm working on something else now but I can't post it until Wednesday since its a gift and the recipient reads this!


  1. Hi Kaity, I like the Tile!!! I used to live in Central Florida in a small town called Bushnell it is in Sumter County. I am in Tn now but we have our house up for sale and hoping to get back to Fl.

  2. I don't think the tile is a miss, but we're our own worst critics.

    On another note, I LOVE giving hand made gifts to my friends, but now that I've started a blog, I hate the waiting to kills me, LOL! Can't wait to see what you created!

  3. Love the etched tile idea! You are so creative!

  4. Congrats on your anniversary! Cute set of cards and just remember with the tile- it's not a mistake, it's a feature. ;) Just popping in from the Getting Cricky hop.
