Default You know it's time to stop crafting when...

For me today it was when I versamarked my hand instead of the stamp (I had the pad upside down) and when I fixed that, I didn't pay attention to my heat gun and I congealed my EP that was in the jar! I need more purple - I was only able to salvage some of it!!

Anyone else want to 'fess up to their "oopsies"?

I made a birthday card for my granddaughter's first birthday with a great big BACKWARD number 1! I didn't notice it until after I had given it to her. Of course, it was one of those birthday parties with lots of people.

I was going to cut ten pieces of craft card stock to make notebook covers. I cut on the wrong side on every one of them! Then I cut it wrong again!

My most common OOPS is to glue the entire front mat of the card on upside down -- or else like Nyoka I muck up the background paper and when that happens it is always on a design where you can easily see it should go the other way round, NEVER on PP where it wouldn't really matter...

I do that upside down front thin A LOT! Or I do the inside upside down. One time I made an entire Christmas card with repositional gluestick on accident but at least that was easy to take apart and put back together .

I have gotten opposing scrapbook pages both upside down and inverted, of course when the layouts are made onto the page itself, and with journaling right on the page... My only fix was to "fix" the side that was actually done right to match the messed up set... One time I remember taking about 11/2 hours on the original 4 pages, discovered my goof and spent another 2 hours correcting it... Not a good use of precious time. And it SO takes away the momentum of a good crop!
