Card making is my total jam and love language right now. I love hanging out in my craft room, grabbing supplies and trying to figure out what to make….because the options are endless! Sometimes I suffer from ‘craft stress.’ So much paper and so little time.
The stamp and die companies have amazing products and come out with more each month. It is so hard saying no. Do you feel the same way?
As I create cards, and other paper crafting projects, I will post them right here. PLUS, most of them have ‘how to’ videos for you to take a look at. Maybe you can gather a few tips & tricks that will help your card making projects go a bit quicker.
My favorite thing about card making and paper crafting is giving it all away. I send about 10 cards a month...a lost art that I am trying to keep alive.
I love making postcards. I have been making them for years. But, whenever I mailed them they always seemed to get damaged in the mail. Enter Jennifer McGuire. She really knows how to think outside of the box.
I am still obsessed with the Anita Jeram Stamps and Die sets from Colorado Craft Company. I grabbed one stamp set and created 3 different cards. I LOVE making different cards from 1 stamp set! I feel like I get my money’s worth!
I am a cat lover. In fact, almost everyone in my family loves cats too. So, when My Favorite Things (MFT Stamps) released these cat stamps and dies I just HAD to buy them. You get that, right? They were all in a MFT Stamps kit which includes an inspiration guide with photos.
Colorado Craft Company and Anita Jeram have HIT. IT. OUT. OF. THE. PARK. AGAIN. In my humble opinion. They came out with a bunch of new stamps last winter…and have continued to release them over the past 3ish months. I LOVE the illustrator style of coloring. Right up my alley – NO blending. Harsh lines […]
I have been making purses designed by Becky Roberts for years. I would trace the patterns, cut them out and assemble.
My daughter was pregnant and due any day…and I needed some quick and easy Easter Cards.
My answer to quick and easy is pattern paper. I LOVE pattern paper.
My daughter is having a baby. And I have loved that baby even before she was born. When Colorado Craft Company and Anita Jeram came out with this stamp set I just had to buy it and make a few cards.
I needed to buy my mom a new phone. I ordered this Jitterbug flip phone because it has large buttons and it is easy for her to answer PLUS it needed a cute case!
Grab your shamrock stamps and dies…and make a card or two. There are so many occasions to make cards, right? This is the 1st year that I made St. Patrick’s Day cards. I ordered the supplies and made some really cute cards! ONE stamp/stencil set. ONE word die. ONE sentiment stamp/die set. Certainly saves on […]
have been in a heart mood lately. Maybe it’s because Valentine’s Day just passed. Regardless, I love this Heart Garden stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
Cards with action…cards that move. I LOVE these cards. And, they were pretty easy to make thanks to the Action Wobbles by Art Impressions.
Sometimes I like to challenge myself and see how many cards I can make out of one main die or stamp set. Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner…
Through the years, after a whole lot of trial and error, I have found things that I just LOVE. And, since I love them so much I thought you might to love them too. So...what are you waiting for?
