There’s quite a few creative opportunities happening this weekend – check ’em out!
Starting today at 1pm (but truly a go at your own pace event) is my friend Melissa’s Tropical Paradise Virtual Open House. She’ll have creative instruction, games and prizes! Join her VIP Group for all the details.
Tomorrow at 10am I’ll be teaching how to use Forever Historian’s Album Planner feature. I love using this, especially for my vacation books! All the info is in my VIP Group under Events.
All weekend Creative Memories is hosting a Virtual Crop. They typically provide a variety of sketches and ask to see your layouts, using CM products (paper or digi). The event is run on Facebook in their Virtual Crop Group. If you’re looking for CM Supplies, I’d be honored is you selected me as your Advisor while shopping.
Happy interNational Scrapbooking Day! How are you celebrating? I was supposed to be hosting a weekend event in the mountains in Northern California but that was canceled so I’m crafting at home. Here’s a few things that I’m doing today. Comment with what you’re doing!
My mom asked me to to make her some Monogram cards for Mother’s Day. I love how these came out and they were super easy in Artisan! Click on each image to see them in Forever. I’d love to make some for you or your mother – just let me know!

It’s so interesting for me to see trends develop with Holiday Greeting Cards. It’s true that I’m seeing fewer and fewer cards sent to me in the mail. Just the other day, I received an email with a very clever holiday poem. Will I print it and include it with this year’s cards? Good question.
I love crafting and for some reason, even more so during the holidays. This year, I used the season to subscribe to Stampin’ Up’s Pumpkin Patch kit and just loved their cards. Inside I added a sentiment from SU’s Cookie Cutter Christmas stamps and then clear embossed the reindeer from the same set for the envelope. These cards were sent to my Scrap Happy and Our Happy Scrappin’ Place card swaps.
Oh! Did you see my Misti in these pictures! I’m loving this tool for production stamping!
I also made some fun winter tags. Years ago, I purchased some metal sheets with the vision of embossing snowflakes – I just never made the time to do it until yesterday. I am really pleased with these and plan on incorporating them in many more projects in the future. They embossed easily with my Cuttlebug and punched out well with my [old] Creative Memories tag punch. I’d love to try using paint or markers on this material too.
It’s already 8 days into December and we’ve only received 2 cards in the mail and 1 by email. Mine are going out next week.
Are you sending greeting cards? I’d love to hear your stories, let’s connect in the comments.
