Restockin' My card stash

I need to rebuild my stash of cards. I am getting low. I have backed off on making them for a while now. Well I had not been making a lot of anything for a while. I have a stack of things as well as still working on Christmas presents. Next time My mom heads this way she will be headed back with a car full of wrapped gifts yeah I know confusing but December was NOT a good month for me. SO... ANYWAY. IM NOT gonna post them though UNTIL AFTER because THEY ALWAYS SEEE THEM HERE before THEY GET THEM :P~~ even though a couple of them HAVE already seen theirs because they were for assignments. I figure I could surprise a few maybe hehe.

I DID take some of my scraps and make a couple of simple cards. These are nothing extra fancy but simple cards that will go together in a few minutes if you need a quick "thank you" to send out or sentiment.
I used my scraps from this months Kit at SCRAPBOOK OBSESSIONS.

A TIP FOR YOU! Something I started doing and this might be a good tip for you. I always have 2 sheets of 12 x 12 card stock so I take one sheet and I cut it down to 8 1/2 x 11 then you turn it to the 11 inch side and cut in half at 5 and half inches (that makes you 2 perfect invitation sized cards (that fit in the standard invitation sized envelopes like you get in bulk at wal mart) I keep a stack of these un folded pieces of card stock in a stack on my table in one of Bellas old shoe boxes (altered of course) so I can quickly make a card if need be with my scraps.

Cute cards. I need to get more organized with my card making them ahead of time and then having them on hand. I just seem to always have something I need to get done...hahaha! (oh and thanks for the support...I know it will work out but man it's a struggle in the meanwhile!)

What a great idea about cutting the carstock, thanks for sharing! Loving the card, I need to do this also, but my mojo is just gone!!! Too much stress going on!!! I may be taking a break from blogging for awhile!
