Ummmmmmmmm...

...this seemed like a good idea at the time.

Andy has produced some lovely cards using the House Mouse decoupage sheets and I just love the images - but why do the bits look bigger on Andy's cards??? When I came to cut these out they seemed sooooooooooooooo teeny - can you guess, I'm a die-cut girl when it comes to decoupage normally.

It has taken me ages to cut all these bits out...and NO!!! I haven't cut out the coffee beans - talk about microscope job...
So now here they are, all nicely cut out and ready to...what?...mind has gone blank.

I was going to use them to make a card, then I was thinking of using them to decorate a scrap page of my Christmas Starbucks photos, then I thought of making them into a picture in a shadow box. Oh dear, all the effort of cutting those fiddly bits out and now I'm stumped.

Even worse, I have another 19 sheets of these lovely designs...**groan**...and I was nearly tempted to buy a second pack LOL

At the moment, the shadow box idea is winning so we will have to see what I eventually come up with............................

I love looking at decoupage sheets, but I'm very much a die-cut girl too. I hate cutting out little bits and pieces! Congrats on doing such a good job! I think a shadow box would be lovely.
