By | Cards, Product Tips | 5 Comments

I made this card one day and liked it, but was not thrilled with it. I hadn’t added the greeting at the top yet and it was looking a bit plain. I left it overnight and took another look at it in the morning. Within minutes I had glanced over my stamp sets, picked out the “you’re in my thoughts” greeting and added it to the top.  Love it!! Tip #1: If you are stuck on a card, walk away for awhile.  When you come back you’ll have a fresh perspective! Tip #2: A flat piece of ribbon can add…

Summer Vacation can be loads of fun or loads of headaches.  After a rigid school schedule, the lazy days of summer can turn into boredom and whining.  No one wants that!  To get ourselves ready for summer fun we created this Summer Fun Binder.  It includes lots of ideas, coupons, brochures and more to keep us organized and ready for fun.  I chose a white binder with a clear pocket on the front and decorated it by sliding a piece of Designer Series Paper in.  Easy and more fun to look at!
