Card Crafting

February 12, 2010

Handmade cards and stationery are something I love to create–but don’t actually find time to do very often. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to pull out the craft supplies and make something special. I know that’s really intimidating for some, but it really doesn’t have to be complicated. A simple handwritten note is a keepsake. But, if you want to do more than that, here’s some ideas to get you started.

Happy card crafting!

    Aw, thanks. I’m glad to be blogging a bit more too. I was so busy with photography jobs the end of last year and with exhaustion in Jan. I’ve been revived a bit! 🙂

    I think I may actually do some of these w/ the kids…or at least some v-day cards. LA will be at work all day tomorrow, and it’ll be a good thing to fill our time with, doing together. IF Josh is working, ya wanna come over and join us in our card creating? 🙂 Thanks for the link to BH&G site…I’m going to check out some of their ideas and heading to Walmart soon. Let me know if you want to join us tomorrow. I have a class for Bella at the Y at 10 a.m if it’s not cancelled. WE’ll get home around 11 and be home from that point on likely.
