Quick & Easy Cards with Pretty Paper

By | Cards, Sympathy Cards, Thinking of You Cards | No Comments

Making a card does not have to be complicated or take a long time. Pretty papers are my favorite! They are the first thing I look at when a new Stampin’ Up! catalog comes out and there are always a couple packs of new pretty papers on my first order. They are an inexpensive way to make a whole bunch of cards in a short amount of time. Today’s Quick & Easy…

Once I have the pattern in my head I can make a whole bunch of cards like this… They are all the…

Wondering how the move to my new craft room is going? VERY SLOWLY! That’s on purpose though. While my husband quickly put in new flooring, painted, added shelves to the closet and assembled a new desk and drawer organizers from IKEA… I have been slowly going through everything from my old craft room. It’s time to let some things go. (Watch for an online garage sale coming soon!) We crafters tend to save things because we “might” be able to use them on a project “someday”.  I’m done with that.
