Happy Mail

Don’t you love receiving happy mail? When was the last time you sent a card or hand-written letter in the mail to a friend or family member? Card kits allow you to make a bunch of cards with ease. Wouldn’t it be nice to send out a handmade card just because?

I have one more card kit to show you, and that is the one you can earn for FREE with your Sale-a-bration Rewards. It’s called Precious Parcel Card Kit. It makes 8 charming pocket cards you can create in minutes.

Simple Sketch
I have a stack of old scrapbook magazines that I’m trying to make my way through. I like to pull out sketches that I can adapt with current products. This card came together pretty quickly with a few simple supplies.
Theme: Valentines Day
Supplies: Stamps, ink and paper
Tool: 1″ circle punch

I thought it would be perfect for my husband’s Valentines card:)

Stamp Set Used: Meant to Be (Occasions Catalogue)
smallest Whisper White tile: 1-1/4″ x 1-3/4″
next Whisper White piece: 2-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
Night of Navy piece: 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
Call me Clover piece: 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″

Tip: Glue the white, night of navy, and call me clover pieces together and then punch the circles out (1″ circle) before adhering the whole thing onto your card! Then stamp your hearts inside the circles.

 And I finished off the inside like this:

Simple Stamping

You don’t have to be a creative designer to make a handmade card. Some of the most beautiful cards come from simple stamping.

Last night was my team meeting and the cards we made were beautiful and actually quite simple. We copied 2 ideas straight out of the newest Stampin’Up! publications.

We made the adorable treat packages found on pg. 8 of the Occasions Catalogue:Hey-Love-1The complete list of products used are right on the page so you don’t even have to go looking! They really DO make it easy. If you are looking for a cute packaging idea for Valentines Day, this would certainly fit the bill. And these images in the Hey Love stamp set are not just for kids! They’d be perfect for your fellow book club members or co-workers as well:)

View the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration Brochure HERE.

 The other idea we copied was from the Sale-a-bration brochure on p. 8:Butterfly-Gala-1The background is just strips of cardstock cut at 1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and adhered flat with SNAIL adhesive. Simple, right? I used a tiny, tiny amount of Tombo Multipurpose Glue to adhere the wooden butterfly element.

And it’s always nice to make the inside of the card look pretty too…
Butterfly-Gala-2Once again, all the supplies are listed right there. But this time, this project uses an item that you can get for free. When you buy the products to make the projects shown there, you’ll qualify for the free Sale-a-bration item used: Butterfly Elements.
Butterfly-ElementsThe greatest thing about the Butterfly Gala Bundle is that it includes an amazing punch that punches out both sizes of butterflies at once! And the details on these butterfly images are gorgeous. I’m not even a butterfly person and I love this bundle. Butterfly-Gala-Bundle-ImageThere are so many other options available if you like to keep things simple. Our kits for example are perfect if you like things all cut and ready for you. Contact me and I’d love to help you choose a crafting experience that is just right for you.
