Tuesday Morning Sketches #537

I guess I went a little crazy with our sketch #501!!  It was Debbie’s favorite from last year #501.  I loved the first card I made which is the second one below.  I was on a roll wanting to make more but then my Vagabond broke uggghhh :o( so I resorted to my punch drawer and got the idea to use this cute little envelope punch.  I thought it was more unique for a focal point so I used it for our team blog.  

I’ve had 3 important tools quit on me in the last 6 months.  My computer, my paper cutter and my Vagabond.  I became obsessed with researching cutting/embossing machines for the following 20 hours (other than eating and sleeping lol) and ended up ordering a Vagabond 2.  I LOVED my Vag and even though I think it’s kind of ugly I decided on another one because on the 2 -Sizzix has corrected the two issues that lead to my first one breaking.  I still got probably 7 years out of my old one and I used it and pushed it so much, there were times when I was having workshops that I would sometimes cut and/or emboss 50+ items in a day.

Well enough rambling on my part, I sure hope you have a chance to check out what our team made and that you get to join us this week and have as much fun as I did with this sketch!!

I’m really going to use this punch more often, I think it is so cute and I stamped different sentiments on front and back of the insert so I have a choice when it’s time to use it. 


  1. These are all so cute!

    My sympathies on the loss of your Vagabond. I've had my sizzix express and I feel like it's going to quit on me sooner than later since I have had it for 10+ years. I guess it was blessed with good health :)

  2. Oh wow... you really liked this sketch. I've always enjoyed seeing the same sketch with different papers, it really does make a difference. Terrific cards!

  3. WOW - you went to town using this sketch. Great variations. I feel you need a sympathy card for your Vagabond...I don't even know what that is, lol. Obviously that's not one of my tools.

  4. Wow! These are all wonderful! That little envelope is so cute!!

  5. They are all wonderful! I love the cute envelope!!
    Have a wonderful day,
