Thoughts of You

Our daughter is about to be deployed to Saudi Arabia. DH and I are truly sad that she will be so far away and in harm's way for months and it's really heartbreaking knowing that we will not be able to see her before she deploys. We decided to send her a little something to let her know that we are thinking about her. I used this set to make her card because I think it is one of the most versatile stamp sets from SU.

'Tis the Season

These Christmas cards were so quick and easy and you can make a bunch of them in no time. I find the fastest way to make cards when you are making a batch is to score the card stock before you cut it. Here is what I did for these cards. Take 3 sheets of 8-1/2" x 11" Very Vanilla card stock and score each sheet down the center at 4 1/4". Cut each sheet in half so that you will have six cards that not measure 8 1/2" x 5". Quick and easy... a lot better than cutting each sheet in half, then scoring cards individually.

Birthday Celebrations

This is for the SCS TLC363, Make Your Own Stripes. I am always at a loss when it comes to making birthday cards and I think this one will fit the bill... I cased this from Alberta's Gallery on SCS. She states she was inspired by a card on Pinterest.

Peaceful Snowflakes

I Watch every Scrapbooking show I possibly can and I especially love watching the ones on HSN. When I saw this Martha Stewart snowflake punch on clearance earlier this month, I had to order the set. The accompanying pamphlet with my punches demonstrated this card... I changed the colors a bit but still stayed within the color range of Martha's card. They were quick and easy cards to make for my January submission for the SCS Christmas Card Challenge.
