Let me start with an apology. I struggled a bit with Friday’s blog post (technical difficulties) and as a result, I got in a hurry and sent it out without checking for typos! Oops! I am usually much more diligent than that. I did correct the errors, but for those of you who subscribe by email, I’m sorry….
We all make mistakes sometimes. Usually it’s best to confess them and move on. But mistakes in scrapbooking or other crafting can be harder (and sometimes easier, depending on your perspective) to deal with. Just last week, my Aggie Mom friends and I were decorating some wooden picture frames to sell in our Parents’ Weekend Boutique booth and we accidentally decorated some of them upside down. I had to get my dear hubby to drill new holes in the right place! Ooops!
I’ve made some doozies over the years. Some I try to fix, and some turn out to be happy accidents and I leave them be. Here’s a few I’ve dealt with over the years. Can you spot the changes in this first layout?
|After I completed this layout, my son informed me that the dates I used were wrong.|
|Changes made: replaced the file folder, including all stamping and journaling.|
I don't have pictures of the original "mistakes" on the rest of these, but the captions explain what went wrong:
|This layout is an example of a page I did not fix. As you can see,|
when I stamped "October 3", my blocky stamps gave less than
excellent results. I didn't have any more of the sparkly white paper,
so I just decided to leave it be.
How do you deal with your mistakes? Are you a leave it and forget it? Do you turn it into a Happy Accident? Do you fix it somehow? Do you tell others about it? Share your scrapping mistakes in the comments…we’d love to hear how you dealt with it!
