Thank you and Girlfriend Cards

Just a few cards I made a few days ago.  I've been working on using my Unity Stamps which I have a lot that I haven't inked ever.   There was a time when I purchased their Kit of the Month which was a subscription.  Unfortunately, as time went on, I barely used any of them.  They'll come in the mail and I would just store them without even opening the package. 

I know. . .it's odd but I just had to many rubber stamps that I couldn't possibly catch up. 

So I decided tow finally open some of the packages and use the stamps.  It's like I just purchased them.  LOL!  It's sorta fun to open a package up even if it was purchased over a year ago.

I really like this girlfriend image and the sentiment.  It's a perfect image and sentiment for a friendship card.

It was actually really quick to make the card because there wasn't much coloring needed for the image.

This card was quick and easy too because I didn't do any coloring with the image.  I used a dye ink and stamped on to colored card stock.  It was really simple.  I love when card making is quick and painless.

Anyway, that's it for today.  I actually made a few more other cards but I'll share them on another day.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Hope your weekend is going great!

Mother and Daughter Mini Scrapbook Album

I'm in the process of cleaning out my garage and while looking through a few containers I found an unopened package of a Close To My Heart Mini Scrapbook Album and sticker embellishments.  I initially thought of selling them but decided to create a mini scrapbook album instead.

I don't like to scrapbook often because most times it takes me several hours to finish which I don't like.  I like to start something and be able to finish it and that's primarily the reason why I prefer to make handmade cards.  But I decided to work on it and surprisingly I finished within an hour or so. 

I usually feel I have to come up with something creative for my scrapbook page design but I decided to just wing it.  I just stuck the photos, stickers, designer papers, and embellishments without any real design concept.  I didn't try to think too hard or I would never finish.

I used Stampin Up designer papers and the stickers are by Close To My Heart.

The pictures are just a collection of photos that my daughter and I took this past year.  I didn't really think about what photos to use.  I just chose whatever photo was in one of the picture files I had.  Most of the pictures were grabbed from my Facebook profile.  It was much simpler than having to look through numerous photos I have on my computer.

As you can see, nothing special about my design layout.  I just sort of stuck the stickers on. 

This is my daughter's photo from her Facebook profile. . LOL!  I like this picture of her.
When I finally figure out what craft stuff to sell I'll let you all know.  Right now I'm looking through containers and sorting through them.  My goal is to sell at least 1/2 of all the craft stuff I own.  I hope I don't waiver from this goal. . .LOL!  I sometimes start getting second thoughts when I think of selling them.
Anyway, that's it for today.

Simple Cards and Ebay Listing

Hi Friends.  Before I begin, I'll be selling a few of my rubber stamps and other crafting items on Ebay.  Stop by and check them out.  I'll be listing a few a day so you may want to check in daily and see what I've listed:

Lot of 3 CC Designs Stamp - Brand new in packages
Sweet Kiki La Rue
Pumpkin Emma
Christmas Emma

 CC Designs Sugar Plums Rubber Stamp
Brand New in Package
Pumpkin Emma

Close to My Heart Clear Acrylic Stamp Set
In original case
D1143 - Do Nothing

With this card I used my Unity Stamps again.  This card actually started off as a Mother's Day card but decided to make it a more generalized card that can be sent any time of the year for any occasion.

Been trying to use up some of my organdy ribbons; therefore, many of the cards I've been making lately have organdy ribbons.

I did use a Unity Stamp on this card.  It's the sentiment design to the left of my card.
I also have a lot of dew drops to use up so I've been using them on most of my cards as well.

The card is very simple with monochromatic colors.  I like its simplicity.

 With this card, there was a really cute cherub image on my designer paper so I used it as a focal image for my card.

 I love the Prima rose.  It's so pretty.
Anyway, that's it for now.
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday evening!
