I challenged myself when I made my Thanksgiving cards this year to use a minimum of supplies. I think that for the 2 sheets of paper that I used I made some pretty nice cards. It really made me think differently about what I was doing and what supplies I was using.
Paper crafting can be an expensive hobby with all the embellishments, toys and gadgets that are must haves nowadays. You can find the cards & more info by clicking on link Thanksgiving cards from the older post.
So anyway I thought I would try to challenge myself again and invite you all to join me! Next Friday night ( December 11 , 8 - 12 pm Central US time ) I will be busy making and sharing the cards as I make them.
Wish me luck!
I have been busy making cards for the Design Team at Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends . They are sponsored by MyGraficO a really great company that sells digital stamps, scrapbook, & embroidery kits. I love them and have been able to use them in a variety of ways. They are so easy to use to, I can't believe I didn't start using them sooner!
These are my first cards using the Sizzix Texture Boutique Embossing machine ( It looks like a cute purse! ). I bought it at M's on Thanksgiving and immediately started to play. It really makes your cards look fabulous! I can't wait to get more folders... maybe I will make some on the Cricut! I have wanted to try that out for some time... Maybe I will make some stamps too...
Set of 4 Japanese Doll stamps are MyGraficO's Kawaii Kokeshi stamps.... I LOVE Them!
