Who am I?

Okay ladies, I'm having a bit of a crafty identity crisis.  I have no idea what my style is any more.
So........back in the day when I had time to follow my crafty desires, I knew who I was.  Lots of layers, precision cutting and coloring, bright colors, etc.
Now, I hardly ever have time to craft and when I do, it's just pandemonium!  I don't know what I'm doing, what I'm using, what kind of project I want to make.  Has this ever happened to any of you?
So, I'm searching for the new 'crafty me'......  You are likely to see a bunch of trial 'identities' while I play around.  Hang in there,  okay?
Today I have a couple of kinda CAS birthday cards.  I really want to embrace this style because I like it - and, well, when you have limited time it seems like this is the way to go. 
Just not sure if I can pull it off..............
I accessorized this first card with a piece of 1-1/2" wide Tulip Grosgrain - (love that color!) and some Plum Baker's Twine.
The second card shows off some of the colors of our fun Sheer 3-Stripe Ribbon
I just love this stuff!!
Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. I think both cards are fabulous Bonnie. Good luck with reinventing your style. I too found myself in a bit of a crisis. Am privileged to be on 2 very different design teams. The one feeds my love for the girly images and the other allows me to explore just about anything I like. Am loving experimenting with the CAS look too. Just thought I'd share that you're not alone. Sorry I took up a lot of space... happy crafting! hugs Sharon

  2. I think my style is constantly evolving too - love these cards - especially the sheer ribbon!

  3. I think you got the CAS style mastered. I love both of your cards!

  4. Re-invent away...what fun to come up with a new style, I have no idea what mine is...never did. lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  5. Both cards are stunning x

  6. Wow, I am so glad you posted this. As soon as I read it I realized that what you are experiencing might be the same woes I have been having lately. In having to create things to be seen as examples for a scrapbook retreat, I really have to mold myself to the masses which doesn't bode well for my own inner creativity. Your post makes me wonder if perhaps I can have the best of both worlds. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  7. It IS FUN to step out of your comfort zone & try new things!!!!!!!! :) I'm STILL WORKING on the CAS stuff! (I just get carried away!) :) SUPER JOB on BOTH CARDS!!!!! :)

  8. I love these cards Bonnie! I know just how you feel except I am not sure I have found my style yet. i know what I love but I don't know how to make it happen so I am a work in progress :)

  9. wow Bonnie...these cards are great! I'm lovin the new you. I think we all experience the crafty identity crisis. This happens to me every time I get in a new shipment in the store lol. It's probably much worse for you...since you have an entire ribbon store to pick do you ever decide?????


We'd love to hear what you have to say
