Just some cards!

Just a little note! If you are visiting from Somewhat Simple. Thank you!  There is no crap involved with the card.  However there is SCRAPS.  Opps!  I hope you enjoy.

I love to scrapbook!  I also don't like to waste any scraps if I don't have to. All of these card are made from scraps.  I have a hard spending $3-$10 for a card that someone may or may not like.  I have been making the cards that I have been giving for the lat year and half.  I have giving out tons that I haven't taken pictures of.  I wanted to share a few and let you know that you don't need a big piece of paper to make a cute card.

Another thing I was talking to a friend and she was talking about buying stamps and how expensive it was.  I spent about $25 dollars and got tons of stamps.  Now I can make all kinds of card for free.  Since I have all of the supplies.  So thing to think about. Notice that all of these cards are done with little scraps. 

Here is some random, can go for anything cards:
 Here is some thank you cards:
Here is a birthday card, a lovey card, and then a thinking of you:
This Friday I think that some of my friends are going to get together to make some more.  If we do then I will be sure to post them too! I also want to do some cards that you sew with your sewing machine.  I love those!  They are so fun.

Cute cards! I know what you mean by not wanting to spend money on something that's just going to get thrown away anyways. Yours are a lot cuter than mine. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Cute! I'm always in need of a new idea for cards, so thanks!

Carrie said...

Hey we need to get together and you need to teach me how to make these cards! I'm sure it's simple but I need some guidance! I just got called as the birthday specialist in RS (lol...kinda funny calling!) and I would love to make cute cards to give people on their birthay! Let me know if you'd be willing to get together and show me! Thanks for your creativity :)
XOXO
Carrie!

The inking on the edges (is that a distressed look? Still working on lingo here) is a great touch. I love it. Thanks for commenting on my blog, too. It made my day!

Laura said...

The Oh Happy Day card is my favorite. I love how you finish the edges. I would have never thought to do that. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Sandra said...

I save scraps of paper too and make up little cards and tags...for gift giving...they are just right for tying onto a party bag. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

The cards look wonderful! I save every last scrap of paper I can, most the time!

Cute cards! I have always been wanting to make some, but for some reason, this is the one craft that I'm intimidated by. Maybe one day I'll try to make them.
