HEY YALL!! IS everyone making cards for WORLD CARD MAKING DAY? DO YOU HAVE A BIG STACK FORMING? ARE YOU AT A CROP? IN YOUR PJ'S WATCHING MOVIES WHILE YOU SCRAP? WHATS THE SCOOP? WHATS THE STORY? let me know... Inquiring minds haha! I thought I would add this to give you some more inspiration!
Here is a tutorial I did for Scrapbook Obsessions a while back. This was originally taught to me by a friend of mine at our local scrapbook store. I have kinda put a few variations on it and made it my own (actually I forgot some of the steps she showed) but it is pretty much the same thing. (THANK YOU STEF YOU ROCK!) It is really fun to get your children involved in also! They love making cards! It is fun to see what they come up with. Bella loves to make her teacher cards. (HOW SWEET IS THAT?)
I always need ideas for a quick gift to give teachers, friends or family. This has been a life saver gift for me on many occasions! SO come on lets have some fun!!
Its not hard, so get you some supplies and join in.

I have broken it down in easy easy steps, so even a beginner can play along! It is very inexpensive to make also. You can buy packs of these 6 x 6 page protectors at Hobby Lobby and there are about 10 in a pack.) really inexpensive (under 5 dollars and they go on sale cheaper than that) I am always making cards with leftovers. So this is another one of those inexpensive projects! SCORE! (Mostly leftovers from various kits)

I used Patterned paper from Fancy pants
card stock
rub ons
chipboard shapes
color box fluid ink chalks

1) 6 x 6 page protector

take a 6x6 page protector and cut the part that you put into the album off just after the seam.

Cut a piece of double sided paper to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Round one end, you can use a dinner plate or a bowl and trace around the edge of it then cut. Ink the edges

SCORE at 2 and 1/2 and at 3 inches from the rounded edge.

slide down inside the page protector. Place a velcro sticky on the rounded edge of card stock and one on the matching side of the page protector to hold it closed.
You can decorate with a piece of Fiber or twill (cute little frilly ball hangy fiber as I have here) Jewels, buttons etc.

To go around the edge.

THEN make 4 general occasion cards.
Here are the ones that I made:

I am working on a few more things that I HOPEE to get posted today. I really love this little tutorial and since IT IS "WORLD CARD MAKING DAY." I thought it would be fun to share This "TUTORIAL FROM THE PAST" again with you guys. I really do enjoy writing tutorials. I miss doing that. Makes me realize how much I miss it. There are a lot of New scrappers out there that have not seen these. I also have had some requests for some of these as well.
Hope you have a great Saturday and LET ME KNOW, ARE YOU MAKING CARDS TODAY? where are you scrappin? Are you going to a crop today? What are you up to today? You know I am home bound these days due to the MS so I love to hear about these things lol SO I CAN LIVE VICARIOUSLY THROUGH YOU GUYS!!! SHARE PHOTOSSSSS PLEASEEEEE!!!
I will have moreee scrappy stuff for you guys laterr!

World Card Making Day

The Scrapbooking/Stamping/crafting/papercrafting/cardmaking (did I cover it all?) Industry is all abuzz with news Of WORLD CARD MAKING DAY tomorrow.
In respect of this I put together 2 simple little cards using some of the scraps I had left from last months Spread Your Wings kit from WWW.SCRAPBOOKOBSESSIONS.COM These are really simple simple non complicated cards that any skill level could make.

That is what I like about making cards. It is a fun sentiment to give to someone. They enjoy it and I enjoy giving it to them to brighten their day.

This card didn't take that long to make. I will be making a ton more cards to donate to the Fall Festival at Bella's School. This is one of their BIGGEST fund raisers. All of the proceeds go to keeping the costs down so these children get the best education they can.
IF you could see the things these children are doing you would be amazed. It just has me in awe. Just love that we are apart of this place. :)IT blesses the parents as well as the children.

Here is another Card. I thought this would make a good Wedding, Anniversary, Valentines, You could use it for so much,

The inside of these cards are blank. With a white insert so you can put your own sentiment. SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Get started making cards today! Replenish your stash and start making others smile. Just to say hi, or maybe you have birthdays or want to get started on the upcoming holidays. :)
I will have some tutorials up soon. Tomorrow I am going to be making MORE CARDS and showing you some more ideas of things you can do to celebrate WORLD CARD MAKING DAY.
SO do you have big plans? Will you be making cards? TELL ME HERE IN THE REPLIES. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
