Use LIMES before you buy!

Today, I'm putting myself to the test. When I saw this card that Jessica made, I felt like I just had to have the Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower dies. 

I used my LIMES method to get the look of Jess' card before deciding whether or not I really need them. Sometimes, I really just like the look of the card, and making one similar, with products I already own satisfies that itch. Not always, though!

Today's video shows my in-depth analysis of Jess' card, and focuses on different ways of modifying the inspiration, to make your card truly your own. Plus I used 3 super-fun techniques!

The Card Maker Success Summit is less than a week away! If you want to get a jump start on your holiday crafting, plus inspiration from 25 expert speakers (including me!) PLUS live access to many of the speakers, to ask your questions and share experiences,

  1. Ardyth, fabulous video. Loved hearing about your process and your cards were amazing. I agree it is often the look of a card not necessarily the product that draws one in though we don't often realize that at first.

  2. Wonderful cards Ardyth, and I love your LIMES technique - a great way to sort out wants from needs, help to prevent impulse buying, and getting the most out of what we have!
    Stay safe
