In the idealised world of social media, it's easy to forget that the finished item we're seeing isn't always the first attempt... or even the second, third or fourth! Even those of us who have been practising our craft for a long time have days when things go wrong. I've decided to start collecting some of the "uh oh" moments that happen in my crafty space so that I can share them with you here. Some I've managed to fix, while others have been filed at the very bottom of the trash can!
This first one is an error of judgement. I thought I'd have plenty of room to stamp out a sentiment on a piece of scrap card, but it turned out I didn't leave quite enough space between my sentiment and the last area I cut from. The result was a couple of bites taken out of my oval! I managed to save it by positioning the edge just under the image panel.
I wasn't so lucky with my second mistake! Not enough pressure on the centre of my stamp resulted in a gap in the design. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot I could do to save this one, but happily, card stock has two sides so I just flipped it over and tried again.
