More Thank You Cards

I had a nice challenge. My mom wanted some thank you cards for ladies and men. Most of my cards are 6 inch x 6 inch in size. But I decided to try a smaller size card. So I got the pre-scored card and envelope package from Michael's. They were so small and I really wanted the 5x7 size instead. But I jumped into the smaller size 4 inches x 5.5 inches and was surprise how fun it was.

Making cards for men is another challenge. But I did have some paper I thought would make nice designs. So I made a variety of cards that she will enjoy giving away. Go on Kelly, you did it! LOL!

Here they are! I got on such a roll with the lady cards, I made more than she needed! So maybe a blog giveaway gift is coming soon?????

Used Echo Park pp and Recollections flowers.

Used Teresa Collins pp, Recollections flowers and lace ribbon.

Used buttons and a variety of pp from My Mind's Eye, Doodlebug, & others. Can't remember! :)

Here is a closer look at a few!

All the lady cards were presented in this adorable organza bag instead of an envelope. I know they will love this!

Isn't this lace beautiful? Love how the satin ribbon runs through it. Found this at a trim store. Love it!

Love the textures on this card. The top looks and feels like leather and the bottom feels like courderoy.
Thanks for taking a look and all this fun work. Also a big thanks to my mom for this card order. Hugs!


  1. Great cards, Kelly! I really like the texture on the last card.

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.

Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!

I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.

You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.

Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!

Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
