Keeping up with ICAD

I've been using a manilla envelope for a backdrop for photgraphing all of my Icads. I think it keeps them more consistent looking. I am having trouble feeling creative. We've had temps of 105, 107, 108, for way over a week. I've lost track of how many days. Being inside in A/C alternating with going out in the heat(as little as possible) but still can't avoid it altogether. I'm having more migraines, so I've had to take time out to deal with those. That makes me crabby and it's hard to feel creative when not feeling well. Anyhow, here are the ones from the past few days.

1 August. Paper from a catalog, transparency strips, tape.

2 August. Clouds from a magazine, pitt pen, Scrapbook border strips.

3 August. Woven paper strips, metallic tape, soda bottle top, metal brad.

4 August. Prompt:Numbers. A Cavallini tape sampler. That's it. Feeling tired and lazy.

This is the little tin of paper tapes made by Cavallini. I found them last week at Paper Source.


  1. love August 3! Congrats on keeping it up in spite of the heat and lethargy.

  2. Crabby or not these are FANTASTIC! I think I like these the best....but then I say that each time but that's because you just keep making them better and better.

  3. OMG, that tape is so cool Barbara. I want some! :-) I think your cards are so inventive and fun! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks everyone, for stopping by. Hanna, I can't find your e-mail. Can you order Cavallini where you are? If not, let me know and I can cut off some strips, put them on release paper, and mail you some.

  5. Oooh, I didn't know Cavallini made paper tape!

    I especially love your butterfly card!

    Sorry to hear about the heat. I would definitely not be happy with those temps, either. Hope it eases up soon.
