2 Minutes to Finish (2M2F) – Sure Do Love You

Jan 11, 2018 | Love & Valentines Cards, Tutorials & Videos | 0 comments

Yea!!! Tic Tac Toe Challenge is back! Team O is up and we’ve got a fun board for you this week – hosted by… ME!

I’m working on a whole slew of projects using the new Sure Do Love You product suite. I’m excited to say that I’m going to have project tutorials, videos, and even supply kits available very soon for you! Be sure to check in after the video to see how you can start earning Pixel Points to get them for free!

Today’s project is inspired by the newest Tic Tac Toe Challenge board. This week’s board is hosted by me! I always have to laugh when my board comes up because I always forget what I put on the board to begin with. Sometimes the struggle is real… Let’s take a look at the board!

Play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Inspiring you 8-ways each week! Find us @tttchallenge or tictactoechallenge.com. New challenges every Thursday!

Honestly, I was elbow-deep in the Sure Do Love You suite when I switched gears to work on a few challenge designs. I stared, and stared, and stared at the choices in front of me. Looking at all of the suite products, I knew I’d be able to get them to fit with this board. I finally came up with a quick and simple 2 Minutes to Finish design using the far right column – Floral, No Sentiment, Purple:

With the notecard pack, a few strips of the DSP and coordinating Cardstock pack, and the vinyl stickers, you could have a pile of these whipped up in 30 minutes – easy! Here’s how easy it is…

How about that? I know that sometimes people get hung up on wanting to make an identical stack, but that’s not always necessary! Don’t feel like you need to have identical cards. If you use a stack of these for coworkers or friends, it’s fun to see how they compare each other’s designs and point out things they like about each. That’s the beauty of having all the coordinating designs!

Just use the same basic layout and switch it up with different strips of DSP, and vinyl stickers. There’s 20 total border strips of stickers and 20 notecards in a pack – a match made in heaven! Like I showed in the video, you can go horizontal or vertical – it works both ways!

AECP: Faux-clipse Thank You Card

Don’t you just love the eclipse technique? How about the faux-clipse?
The eclipse technique is super fun and not too difficult, but I created a riff on the technique, I’m calling a faux-clipse.

On the CASE: Faceted Flower

It’s coming!
Spring is trying so hard to melt all the snow here in East Nebraska – but, it’s coming! Soon, the grass will be growing and little plants will be pushing up from the ground. Why not add to the anticipation with a lovely, but simple, faceted floral design, courtesy of Concord & 9th!

AECP: Build a Garden Scene Card

It’s time to chillax with some coloring!
I took my project over the top today with a combination of Copic and Polychromos pencil coloring. I am not embarassed to say that the elements took me about 90 minutes to color.
