The business card search on Pinterest yielded a LOT of inspiration and will no doubt crop up repeatedly over the next few months as I've pinned a bunch of pictures on my Pure Inspiration Board. So much goodness!
Anyway, several different business cards used this basic idea of a rectangle divided into two triangles, but this one was the primary inspiration, and the influence is very plain to see in my versions in both the layout and the font choice.
My preference is for the blue version (Hero Arts soft pool ink) rather than the pink (Hero Arts soft blossom), which came out a bit too dark, I think, and therefore not so "happy." You are, of course, free to prefer the pink, or to hate them both, or to think they are both meh. Isn't life grand?
My craft-room clean-up is going well, but I'm struggling with several first-world issues that cause me to purse my lips in Church-Lady style and mutter, "Well, isn't that special." Your thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated. I simply MUST get that look off my face!
1. Organizing Sentiment Sets: I've accumulated a frightful number of sentiment sets, and yes, I often still lack just the sentiment I want. Not sure how or why that might be, but there it is. Anyway, shuffling through all of them, even when I know what I'm looking for, is cumbersome. Some of the sets are in CD cases and some are in transparency folders. All are stored in a CD storage case that is almost full. I'm considering purging a few of the sets and adding dividers to the storage case so, say, all the Birthday sets are together, all the thanks sets, all the sympathy/get well/encouragement sets, and so on. This will still leave the bulk in a multiple occassions group but will at least add some order to the confusion. Has anyone ever tried this? Does anyone have any better ideas?
2. To index, or not to index? My stamp index is a mess. Is it worth it to spend the time completely redoing it? Understand it will take a REALLY long time to recreate...and it will be the sixth or seventh time I've done it in 13 years. Last time, I had wrist problems for weeks as I worked on it. BUT if I worked through slowly, like the Little Engine Who Could, it might be nice to have. Do you have an index? Do you bother to keep it updated? Do you use it enough to justify having created it? Am I completely insane for fretting about this? Should I just let it go? Aaaarrrrggghhh!!!!!
