Joyful Creations

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    Creating cards is such a joy for me because I love sending cards. I know for me personally I love opening my mail box to find a hand written card. That is one of the most special feelings. Christmas cards are always so much fun to create, so I sat down in my creative little room and went to work yesterday.

Choosing the paper is so much fun. Remember it does not always have to go. Be creative and try things you would not normally pair together. I wanted this card to match so I pulled out my Christmas paper.

I used to work at a scrapbooking store, and I learned most of my techiniques from my fellow co workers. I love ripping paper because it takes away straight lines and measuring. One time I was asked how to properly rip paper. I was so unsure how to answer that question because all you do is rip. It still makes me giggle when I think of that lady asking me how to rip paper.

Remember to get an item to stand out more you can take a stamp pad and brush it along the edges of your "hiding item" It works wonders.

 Putting it all together is my favorite part. What goes where, and should I use pop up glue or regular. Where should I put some sparkle.

Stickles is my favorite to add a bit of sparkle to your card. Its super easy and dries quickly

Seasons's Greetings will be sent out soon to a lovely lady in South Carolina.
