Throwback Thursday on a Monday

I was tidying my creative space and stumbled upon these.

Don't recall the maker but I believe I ordered them from QVC.

Not sure where the rest of the alphabet is hiding but there were also word cards in the stack and I was decorating them to put in a baby book for my son. The cards were blank manila stock and I added the textures, embossing, inks, etc.

Another unfinished project that I need to COMPLETE.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Until Then.

3x3 cards rule

Hello my crafty friends.

My love affair with these cute 3x3 cards has been revived. They are quick, easy and makes efficient use of the smalls that we all have lying around.

I will have to look for the name of this paper, but I love the freshness and it is a pack I got from Tuesday Morning. The base is the heavyweight 110 lb Recollections paper from Michaels. The envies are made from the White card I get from Tuesday morning. The weight is not specified, but I believe it is about 40-50 lbs.

The Little B words were perfect for this project. There are four in each sleeve with each phrase represented. Again, I simply need to top them with the coordinating paper and staple them closed. The packaging is from the Wilton line. They are 6x 3.75 and perfect for these cute little cards.

Thanks for stopping by and until the next project.

General Tag Making

Hello to all of my crafty friends. 

I know it has been a minute since I posted, but please know that I have been a busy little bee.  I am hoping to sell at Christmas craft fairs this year. I need to amass a sizable amount of goods. Sharing a photo of some gift tags I made using Washi tape and a few die cuts. These are NOT Christmas related. I have made a box load of those already.

The tags are the small precut ones that I scored at my local Tuesday Morning stores and shared in previous haul videos. If I went in and they were available, I grabbed them. Yes, I could use my die cutting machines, and believe me I have, but these are time savers and that is uppermost on my agenda.
I sorted and packaged them four to a bag and cut a piece of white card to fit the envelope. Those are the long ones that I got from Tuesday morning and cut them in half. I just need to add the topper and staple them closed.

Working through my stash and loving every minute of it.
Getting sad that  school will begin soon and my craftiness will have to take a back seat for a few weeks as I get settled back into the work routine.

Thanks for stopping by and I am trying to be more diligent in posting.
Until then.
