Freshly Made Craft Dash

9 Minutes and 59 seconds later...
This is about as close to the wire for the 10 Minute Craft Dash as I've been - using my new electronic kitchen timer the beeper started going off just after I finished rounding the last corner! For this Dash, I flipped this weeks versatile Freshly Made Sketch  and found inspiration in the direction of CASology Arrow ;)

First up the strip for the sentiment and the red backing strip were die cut using Paper Smooches Fishtail Flags.  The Fancy Pants Down by the Shore azure wave paper was cut to size. The sentiment flag was stamped with The Alley Way Stamps Life is Short.  Next the Verve Learning to Sail sailing boat was stamped on the grey timber paper, white cardstock, red paper and azure wave paper.  The relevant sections of the stamped sailing boats were fussy cut and adhered to the azure wave paper using a glue pen.  The corners of the azure paper were rounded before it was adhered to the cardstock base. The fishtail flags ends were trimmed and secured together, before being adhered to the cardstock base with foam tape.  Decided at the last minute (literally!) that the cardstock base would look better with rounded corners.

10 Minute Tips:

  • Stick to what you know when Dashing.  Looking back at my Craft Dash cards, I almost always choose die cuts and/or fussy cutting as my "go to".  When you're in a hurry, you usually find whatever your "go to" is already, is it the easiest thing to do FAST.
