I dont know why

I don't know why but sometimes when you see a crafting item it just says buy me. Actually I see that quite a lot but I don't listen these days. Its been a while since I had a good crafting spend and then this week Stampin Up released their new catalogue. Suddenly there was a whole bunch of stuff saying buy me and I did. So now I am waiting for the delivery. In the mean time I went to the Craft Box. I have been working on a project and messed up with one of the sheets of paper, so I had to make a trip and buy another.
It was great to see Lynn again and catch up, I really miss my little trips there to teach the scrapbook class but the demand dropped so low it was no longer feasible. But when I had found the paper i need I spotted this die. I have no idea why it appealed to me but I just had to buy it. Then this morning I decided to give it a go and here are the results. I made a couple of generic cards for my box, they can have a greeting popped onto them when I need an emergency card.

While I was making these the little birds made me thing of Robins, so I wondered if it would work as a Christmas card and it does. So this card is going into the Winter Wonderland Challenge for this week. Their theme is spots and stripes.
 Another thought then came to me. I am planning to document my year next year as a Project Life album, so I have been gathering supplies so that I can just do it without much thought. Any papers left over from scrapbook pages  I cut down into 4X6 or 3X4 pieces and round the corners. I have a box ready to start on 1st January 2015. SO I made a little card using the centre panel that will fit into my PL album sometime next year.

I love all your different ways of using this die, you've have made it very versatile. Just curious, are you planning on documenting 2015 on a daily, weekly or monthly basis or just see how it evolves?
