#365cardsin2017

I’ve handmade greeting cards for over 10 years, but I’ve been terrible about actually sending them out to people! My goal in 2017 is to send out AT LEAST 365 cards.I hope you’ll help me by participating! I expect that most cards I will send will be BIRTHDAY cards, but I will send out others, including Christmas/Holiday cards in December!

If you would love to receive a handmade birthday card this year, then you can email me your address and birthday, or visit this link: https://goo.gl/forms/lnhz4SArretS3TG22

Your contact information will ONLY be used by me, and only for sending you card(s). #365cardsin2017

Stamp-A-Stack for World Card Making Day!

SAS-WCMD2016smaller

Join me for this year’s Stamp-A-Stack for World Card Making Day! This year I am doing the event a little differently – since my house is still undergoing some renovations I wouldn’t have the time to plan, order and prep my typical Stamp-A-Stack, so you get to pick your own kit! This means you could choose to not even make CARDS this year – you could make gifts or tags!

I’ve missed having classes, so I hope you’ll join me! Register to attend no later than September 19th so I have plenty of time to order your kit and other supplies.

See you soon!

Tips for the Tin of Cards project kit

138378GDon’t purchase the Tin of Cards kit without reading this!

I recently put my cards together and noticed a few challenges. I found that if you follow the instructions included with the kit, you might become frustrated like I did.

First, there are a couple places where Stampin’ Up! recommends that you use StazOn ink. I suggest that you instead use Memento ink! StazOn will not only stain your photopolymer stamps black, over time it will ruin the photopolymer. That said, I understand why they suggest StazOn for stamping on the wooden embellishments – the image will be cleaner, with no bleeding. The minimal bleeding doesn’t bother me as much as the stained stamp does, so the choice is yours!

Second, there are times where Stampin’ Up! recommends that you use SNAIL adhesive, where I had better luck with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Tin of Cards kit is really cute, and I love the tin to organize cards. Just make sure to carefully read through all of the instructions before completing each card – and contact me with ANY questions you have!

Here is the video from Stampin’ Up! about the Tin of Cards kit and stamp set, with a few more pointers:
