So Sweet

Making cards is something I really like to do when I want to feel accomplished in a short period of time. Batch creating still allows you to make each card unique but allows for more efficiencies in getting multiple cards done at once.

Stamp: Adorable Elephant - My Favorite Things

Paper Line: Oh Happy Day- Carta Bella

Other items: So Sweet Die; Stitched dies (square and arrow); Wink of Stella; Pop foam; Chameleon Color Tone Pencils

Beautiful You

  Making cards is something I really like to do when I want to feel accomplished in a short period of time. Batch creating still allows you to make each card unique but allows for more efficiencies in getting multiple cards done at once.

These cards can be used for almost anything when it related to female friendships and love.

Stamp use: Stamping Up- Beautiful You

Paper Line: Loose papers from my stash- sorry, didn't keep the manufacturer name

Other items: Tim Holtz ink, Corner punch and other dies to create designs

To the Boy's I love

 Making cards is something I really like to do when I want to feel accomplished in a short period of time. Batch creating still allows you to make each card unique but allows for more efficiencies in getting multiple cards done at once.

Male cards can be challenging and once of the things that always helps me is getting grudging!

Paper line used: Very old in my stash but a line I treasure- Kaiser Craft Barber Shoppe

Also used were items from my stash: Glassine bags; Tim Holtz Ink; Star Die; Metal embellishments, washi Tape and string.

There are cute little tags in each bag to pull out and personalize.
