Everyone is always needing birthday cards, so I try to make at least one birthday card at club each month. This card took a little longer to make as the flowers and leaves are double stamped, plus four layers and ribbon.
One of the cards we made at September club was a card that could be used for a birthday in October or a Halloween card. They chose which sentiment they wanted to use. Below is the birthday card.
Quick, easy, and no stamping!
Last Saturday I was a vendor at the Manchester Lions Crop. Everyone had fun working on their scrapbooks, making cards, or just having a fund day out with 40 other crafters! Below is a picture of the tag I made for each participant.
What I wanted to post was the completed goodie I made for everyone and pictures from the crop, however, I totally forgot!! Duh!! So above is the tag that was attached to a cello bag containing bag of pretzels in the shape of pumpkins and bats, and my business card. We made a two-page scrapbook layout for Christmas, as well as two more Christmas cards. The participants that wanted to make these items signed up at my table for the classes. Will post those items in future posts.
The hardest part of this card is cutting off the corners of the square to make the octagon!
