Paper Craft

For years I've enjoyed making my own greeting cards but I haven't done a lot of it since we started traveling.  But I still have supplies and I'm going to dig them out every now and then and play!

Office Space July 2016 Club Scrap Greetings to Go Kit





Lovely colors in this kit.  These cards all have belly bands and gate folds. You slide the band off to open and reveal the message inside.

We've been on 'vacation' this month and I've not taken the time to work with my paper and stamps.  These kits make it easy to cut and assemble quick cards

Wow I know I've made cards in the last month...I must make sure to post more often!

These 6 cards are from a Club Scrap Greetings to Go Kit.  This kit makes 12 cards and I still have 6 to make.  From February 2016 Crewel & Unusual has a nice color combination.  A little cutting, some gluing and Viola!  cards to mail to friends and family

The above cards are from Club Scrap.  The monthly card kits are fun to assemble.  This is the Fiesta Kit

I've been playing with my paper, getting ideas from bloggers and youtube

It doesn't take any time at all to assemble this simple card.  About 10 minutes to cut, stamp and glue together!  Image, ink and paper from Stampin' Up!


These four cards took a bit longer because I cut out all the dresses and hats from stamped designer paper 




I think they need something more...all paper, ink and stamps from Stampin' Up!

Some cards using the Fiesta Kit from Club Scrap.  Not crazy about the black stickers from the kit so I'm doing my own thing with some of the cards.  The colors of the papers are bright and cheery.  I try not to make birthday and other occasion cards because I have plenty of them.  I like to send notes to family and friends so  try to use those type of greetings

I've been assembling cards in stages, working fifteen to twenty minutes at a time.  My pain levels rise if I stand to much.  This first card is from Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin August 2016.  Pretty with Autumn colors all eight cards are shaker cards.  The kit included everything needed to make the cards.  It comes with instructions and a link to a video.  I chose the Hello greeting over Thanks.



These blue cards are from Club Scrap, Color Me Happy, Greetings to Go kit, January 2017.  The kits come with everything needed except your choice of adhesives and no stamping is required.  You also need to cut the paper.  I have a Fiskar Paper cutter that you can buy at any craft store.  You can download the instructions or print them out.  I changed up the design on these.



I love the color combination in this kit!


April 28th, four more cards assembled from the same kit.  These are yellow cards with teal and accents.  The top card is How Ya Doin?  The other three are birthday cards

I was able to play with my stash this week, but only made four cards two of each seen here.  The one on the right is from Stampin' Up! August 2016 Paper Pumpkin.  The card on the left uses a scrap and stamp from SU.  If you're a stamper, remember to use them on the envelope

I took a few minutes yesterday to finish up some cards.  All was ready just needed to slap some glue on them.  The three larger cards are Club Scrap, from a kit.  The two smaller cards are from trades

As you may have read I've become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator again.  My first project is this cute Paper Pumpkin Kit from August 2016 that was included in my original demo order.

What fun!  Everything is included so you can create as soon as you get the kit.  Great for those who aren't sure about crafting.  This kit had three thank you cards, three note cards and three gift card pockets.  Each kit is a surprise so stay tuned!
