"The Lazy Song"
Today I don't feel like doing anything
I don’t have to finish the lyrics for you guys to know the rest of this song ;-) But I do have a question for all of you...How many of you can relate to ‘The Lazy Song’ when it comes to your eCraft?
With Easter coming up this Sunday I scoured the internet looking for cute things that I could whip up for a little egg coloring party for my daughter and her friends. I wanted something simple, but still bright and cheery and something that would add a little bit of whimsy since the party was for a bunch of teenage girls.
I gotta hand it to Martha Stewart, the woman is awesome! Her site is pretty awesome too...BUT if that woman thinks I’m going to trace a pattern on paper and then cut that shape out, she is seriously loopy!
And because no party is complete without goodie bags; I made the girls goodie bags and filled them with trinkets that would be useful while they decorated eggs. Once again I put my delegating skills to work and had Mischief create the tags for me.
Now that you had a chance to think about my question, let me explain what I mean about being ‘lazy’ with your eCraft.
Recollections paper cut great for me on a pressure setting of 2, the American Crafts paper was set to 4 and the Paper Studio paper was set to 3. Now this isn’t the first time I’ve cut with those brands and yet I still did test cuts. Why? Because its a new day. And I know that weather conditions in my area change daily and if mine change, I’m sure they change where these papers are manufactured too.
Michief is a phenomenal machine, but we’re partners. I depend on her to cut beautiful designs and she depends on me to make sure I’ve set her up for success. And that means running test cuts every time I use her...even if I’m pretty dialed in to what setting I’ll need depending on the paper I chose.
