The New Telephone Books Are Here!


If you remember the movie with Steve Martin called 'The Jerk', then you will remember the excitement of the telephone book arriving. That's how I felt yesterday when my newest Memory Box die arrived...it was actually a Christmas present to myself, so its arrival on Christmas eve was perfect.

I love deer, so when I saw some of the cards made with this Memory Box Deer Trio die I just had to order it. To usher in 2014, I plan to make a few winter-theme New Year cards for some friends. I will be using a Penny Black snowy background image that is a winter woods setting. The three deer in this die would be perfect on the background. My cards are stamped and I will be adding the finishing touch of the deer, which I will attach with thin pop dots at the bottom of the background.

Speaking of cards...It will be a while before I have to buy any A-2 pre-folded cards. While at Goodwill this past weekend I found 6 boxes of pre-folded white panel cards (250 per box) for 99-cents a box. Yes, of course I bought them all. Merry Christmas to me.

Valentine's Day Card


It's the day before Christmas and I'm making Valentine's Day cards. This is one of my favorite slide-in card designs. The white card inside with the flower and greeting on it slides out of the outer card. I wanted to make the card in red and black and at the center of the card I attached a red and white La Rue die cut heart.
