Last month I had the privilege of meeting my friend and fellow blogger Jayma Malme in person for the first time when I was visiting Southern California. Jayma and I have a common interest: paper-crafting (and so much more)! We met through Twitter (her name is @jaymalew) and really clicked online as friends, so when I booked my SoCal flight, I let her know. She moved from San Diego to Fresno recently, and I was so happy when she decided to visit family in San Diego the weekend I’d be in town – perfect!
I was with friends, traveling from Costa Mesa to La Jolla and San Diego and we were on a time crunch. Jayma and I met outside an In & Out restaurant for maybe 15 or 20 minutes and had a chance for a quick photo before I got back on the road again. I’m just so thankful we got to meet face to face!
After meeting a fellow paper-crafter, how could I NOT make her a custom card? I sketched out this card – which I almost never do – and watched it come to life. Don’t laugh, but I had to watch my how-to-cut-felt-in-the-Cuttlebug video in order to remember how to cut the felt flowers. I’m so glad I made that video so that it can help others like it has helped me. I cut the stem and leaves freehand with scissors, used a rub-on from CTMH, some fun brads from MakingMemories, paper from DCWV, and pleated some ribbon from CTMH.
Thanks for reading my blog post! 🙂
