I *heart* making cards!

I love to make cards because they're so easy and fast and feed my paper-crafting gene. I popped out this wedding card for a friend's daughter before we went to her reception last weekend. The card base was from a pack of cards I bought at Micheal's in their dollar bin. The whole card probably cost me a grand total of a dollar. It sure beats the $4.99 they're charging at the card store these days.

I have lots of friends who will never scrap a photo but make cards for EVERYTHING. Sometimes I wish the scrapbook industry would offer more for card makers. For instance, I pulled the WEDDING sticker off a sticker sheet full of random words. I would love to have a whole sheet with about a dozen of nothing but that word, "WEDDING" on it. It would make it so much easier to not have to scramble for the right sentiment on the front of a card. "Thank You", "Happy Birthday", "Merry Christmas", would all be nice to have LOTS of on one sheet.

Club Scrap ( has a wonderful kit that ships on the 20th of each month for $27.95. The kit comes with a dozen sheets of 8.5x11 paper they design themselves each month (!), plus a set of 15 cards, complete with envelopes and panels, PLUS free instructions should you need them. It's really a great deal and you are sure to learn a variety of techniques.

If you like to both scrapbook AND make cards, the card pack can be a side order with their Club Scrap kit that ships on the 1st of each month. Comes with enough paper to make 12-14 (yes!) layouts, and again, free instructions should you need/want them.

Can you tell I like this club? They have excellent customer service and are booming, even during this recession! I don't mean to sound like an ad, but this is definitely a company to check out - they do business right!
