Card Swap and Birthdays

These are cards I'm making for a card swap I'm in. I think they turned out really cute, although I wish I'd have used some 3d foam dots to attach the birds - they would have been cuter with some dimension.

I have another set of cards to make for the same swap, and I'll post those when I'm finished. The best part of swaps is getting to see the great artwork that I get back!

These are a couple gift card holders that I made for birthdays. I think I'll make some of these for craft shows this fall. They're simple yet a little bit elegant.

Finally, these are some water bottle hangers I made for a friend's birthday at work - I made a total of 14. I ended up taking 1 packet out because the adhesive wasn't holding as securely as I would have liked. Next time I make them, I'll use super sticky tape...or just keep the drink packets to 2. I'm thinking I may make some of these for craft shows, too, although I'm not sure how well they would sell. (Ignore my finger in the 2nd picture - I was too lazy to get a full water bottle!)

Thanks for looking!!

More Cards

These cards were also made using the OSW technique, and the DCWV Latte Stack papers. The stamps are Close To My Heart.

Finally, this is a set of graduation cards. These were a little tricker because of the words - they had to go in the right direction. So they're not exactly the same, but similar!


I figured it was about time I posted an update :)

I've been working on some cards made using the One Sheet Wonder technique. You can learn more about this by clicking here .

I have a feeling that I'll be making many, many of these cards in an effort to use up some of the vast amounts of paper I've been talked into buying (by myself!).

I'll be working on some crafts for fall craft shows, too; and I may post some pictures of my items from last year.

(The pictures are kind of all over the place...I haven't gotten the hang of positioning them where I want them!)
