PERFECT DAYS CARD PACK...

If you've been thinking that the PERFECT DAYS MEMORIES & MORE CARD PACK is just for SCRAPBOOKING, think again! Check out what I did with the contents that came in this ittybitty 4" x 6" x 1/2" box!

Perfect Days Card Pack

Hummmm... What shall I show you first?

I'll start at the beginning: This is the catalog picture on page 192...

  #144209

Contents:

DSC07233

#144209 includes: 20 double-sided 4" x 6" cards (2 each of 10 designs); 52 double-sided 3" x 4" cards (2 each of 26 designs); cardstock sticker sheet; acetate sticker sheet; acetate and silver foil card overlays (1 each 4" x 6" and 3 each 3" x 4".)  To make the 36 cards pictured below, I used 18 sheets of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock as shown, and cut them all in half...

Card Supplies

 

Cards-1-18

Cards 19-36

All the supplies including Card Pack, Cardstock (18 sheets), and Envelopes (package of 40), total around $22 which does not include shipping or sales tax. $22 divided by 36 cards is approximately $0.62 for each card. Place an order from my Stampin' Store, and I will email you full color close-up pictures of all 36 cards, along with design tips and ideas on how to hold an ONLINE PERFECT DAYS CARD PACK WORKSHOP!

JULY WORKSHOP CARDS...

On July 5th I mentioned that I would show you all the JULY WORKSHOP CARDS the next day (July 6th)!  But my new computer with Windows 10, along with the brand new Publisher program, is challenging my intellect!! So this is the best I can do for now. I posted this from my MAC. That's another story!  [big sigh].....

CRASH COUNTDOWN...

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... While taking steps for the inevitable computer crash, I was able to post a few more cards for our July Workshops made by me especially for you...

 

I absolutely love these versatile framelits!

Soooo many possibilities!

DITTO FROM YESTERDAY...

This new card was also prepared on my HP, emailed to my MAC, and posted on my Typepad account. However, that's about all I could do! Seriously, my HP is really crashing!! 

Birthday Blossoms-3

This card (like yesterday's) was made with the

Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set

#139167 Wood Mount / #139471 Clear-Mount

#139167

and the lawn chair is from the FABULOUS NEW THINLITS SET:

Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751

#143751

 

The button is handmade to match the chair...

Birthday Blossoms-4

 

HERE'S HOW TO MAKE THE MATCHING BUTTON:  1) Punch two little holes with the 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch #134363 using the same Designer Series Paper, Wood Textures DSP #144177, as the chair. 2) Punch a 1/2" round circle around those two little holes. Presto! You now have a button that matches the chair! 3) Mount button on card with a Stampin' Dimensional. 4) If desired, use a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and draw lines around the holes and the outside edge.

CAN I BABBLE?

I have six new cards to show you, but my computer is on the verge of a complete crash! In order to post this one, I had to prepare the parts and pieces on my HP and email all the pictures below to my MAC. Yep! Computer stuff is complicated for me, but my son-in-law (Barry) is a computer whiz and said he would help me find a new HP even though he can't believe that I'm not using my MAC exclusively! [big sigh]... I'm old and set in my ways, and like using Publisher for graphics (which MAC does not support). Enough of my babbling. Here's a pretty card made with TLC especially for you...

 

Birthday Blossoms-1-1

Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist (colors)

are nice together!

If you are able to attend any of our monthly workshops,

WE HAVE A FUN NEW FEATURE:


G&G Banner
HERE'S WHAT THAT MEANS...  When you see a card or cards that you know you would like to make in multiples, just text or email me in advance telling me how many, and I will package those supplies in a bag for you. All the cardstock, papers, accessories, embellishments, envelopes, parts, and pieces will be included. When you arrive at the next workshop, you can do the stamping and embossing, then simply set those cards aside and take them home to assemble. That will give you ample time to make other cards, have a coffee, relax, and visit with friends! xox

I always love hearing from you!
