Card Organizer

 When looking through the Splitcoaststampers website last year I came across a tutorial for a Card Organizer...and I thought it would make a great Christmas present for a friend and co-worker.  You can check out the tutorial here.  It's pretty simple to make.

 The papers are from Stampin' Up that I had in my paper stash.  The covers were made from the chipboard at the back of some Creative Memories paper packs I had - I cut them to size and then covered them with some matching cardstock.  I used my Bind-it-All to bind the organizer together.

I also gave her a card set from a previous post to get her started on her way to sending out cards.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek...Have a great day.

One Sheet Wonder Christmas Cards

I made a few projects and cards over the holidays....and though the holidays are over, I thought I'd make a few posts over the next week or so showing you what I made.  Better late than never, right? :)

First up, are some of the Christmas cards I made for my co-workers - I made a few other cards as well but will post them separately.  For this set of cards I used a One Sheet Wonder template created by Kimberley Morris - click here to visit her blog and to download the pdf instruction sheet and template.  Thanks to the template I was able to get the cards done fairly quickly.  All of the cards are standard A2 size.

Most of the cards are simply embellished using Christmas stickers I had on hand.  Can you believe I didn't use any Cricut?  I did use the iRock tool on one of the cards, the Cuttlebug on one, and some ribbon on another.  But I decided to keep most of them pretty simple.  (I apologize for the picture quality - I took the photos with my phone as I didn't have my camera handy.)

Hope you enjoy them....I'll have another project posted soon.  Have a great day....

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!!

I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year's celebration and that you have had a great start to 2011!  I can hardly believe it's a new year already - 2010 seemed to go by so fast.  I hope 2011 doesn't go by nearly as fast and that I am able to enjoy it.

I've been MIA again for a while, I know.  I've actually been doing some crafting...but keep forgetting to take pictures and post them to by blog.  However, I do have a couple pictures of projects/cards that I've completed over the last couple months that I hope to get posted in the near future.  This is our busy season at work - starts in Sept and goes through end of Jan - so crafting has taken a bit of a back seat to everyday life and spending time with friends and family.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Holiday season.  Christmas at our house was great.  My hubby's family came over on Christmas Eve and we did our gift exchange - it was great.  The week leading up to Christmas my hubby also rearranged the rooms upstairs, including my craft room, so I have a whole new scrapping space now...and it's much bigger!  I'm still organizing it...but it's somewhat functional right now.  Once I have it a bit more organized I'll share some pics of my new and bigger space.

Have you made any New Year's Resolutions?  I generally try not to make them as I don't follow through and end up giving up on them shortly after New Year's.  However, I am going to make a few goals for this year.  My crafty goals for 2011 are:
  1. Take more pictures and focus more on Scrapbooking
  2. Learn to do more with my Gypsy.
  3. Learn to use the Imagine and use it more in my crafting.
  4. Build up a card stash so that I don't have to make a card at the last minute
  5. Post to my blog at least once a week - but hopefully more :)
My non-crafty goal for the year is to go to the gym and get in shape.  My hubby and I signed up for a Planet Fitness membership the other day - so now I have to follow through and use the membership.  So, what are your resolutions/goals for the New Year?

I wish each of you the best in the coming year!  Have a great week!
