So many cards, so little time to photograph them!

And of course, if I don't get them photographed, I can't post them, can I?
Well, part of the problem is that a lot of the work I do is for BSS. Usually I am bustin' my butt to finish them at the last minute (yes, yes, Sharon, I know, I should be working on my July class cards now, lol.)
So anyway, I never have time to take pics of them, I have to rush them right up to the store. Then, I keep reminding myself to bring up my camera, but it doesn't work. I never remember.
Well, as we were helping to move the store last month, a ton of cards that I recognized as my own kept surfacing. I kept thinking, I remember this. Why didn't I ever take a picture of it? lol.
So I am going to try from now on to at least get a scan, if not a nice picture of the cards I do for my BSS classes. We don't post full card pics until after the classes have run, but we can post sneak peeks. here's a sneak peek of one of the cards from my cuttelbug birthday class.

I probably should have cropped this one a little more, you can see about 3/4 of the card here anyway-lol. However, it is only one of 3 cards total that we are making in that class.
Here's one I made for the first Cuttlebug Birthday Card class I taught. The lighting in the old store wasn't that great, so the colors are not as bright and vibrant as they are IRL.

This one was done by inking the inside of the embossing folders. I made this card in january, before they had a tutorial for it on splitcoast, so I think I did mine a little differently. I used different kinds of ink directly on the folder from the pad. All the kinds of ink I tried worked well, including dye, craft, and chalk ink. The dye ink works best if you remember to huff on the folder as you would an inked stamp before inserting your paper and running it through the cuttlebug.
I am actually teaching this technique again in my spellbinders class, so if you missed it the first time, you may be able to catch it again.

I'm going to try to remember to take my camera up with me on Saturday. If I do, I will be posting some "blast from the past" card pics that I've done over the years for various classes. Some are techniques I haven't done in a very long time, so maybe you'll be inspired to try an old technique you haven't used in a while, or maybe learn something new- who knows?

See you soon-
