Because I don’t have a million things on my to-do/to-make list…I decided to try my hand at making cards! I did a lot of scrapbooking in college; my roommates and I would plan scrapping trips to Archivers in the Twin Cities, which was a two hour car drive one way. We would spend the day using their die-cutter and planning page layouts together. It makes me laugh to think we didn’t even have digital cameras back then…it was only 10 years ago! We would turn our film in at Target or Hy-Vee, be sure to get three copies of all the pics (one for each of us to scrapbook!) and look forward to picking them up two days later! We spent a lot of time hanging out in the living room after classes putting together our scrapbooks. But with life getting busy after graduation, it got put on the back burner.
Now I have some more free time and the Cameo to cut out lots of fun shapes and words. I love all the options I have with fonts, as well as shapes that can be downloaded from the online store. Since all my pictures are digital and they never get printed…I wanted to use the Cameo for some paper cutting, so I decided to make some cards. Of course I had to wander up and down the aisles at multiple craft stores before I decided what supplies I needed (wanted). After much hemming and hawing, I picked up a few different packs of pre-folded cards and some card stock. I’ve decided card stock is like fabric…you can never have enough!
So here are some pics of my newest adventure in crafting! I’m also trying out a new photo option from WordPress that my husband, aka my webmaster/designer, told me about. It seems like it will be a fun, new feature to have as an option for blogposts with multiple photos to post!
