Card Share: "Happy Spring" and "Hello"

Thank you for stopping by, it is so great to share paper crafting with all of you. I appreciate you being here. Today I have two cards to share with you. The first card was originally inspired by a challenge at Studio Calico for National Scrapbooking Day last week. The challenge was to use a stamp on patterned paper (I chose a simple grid pattern.) Here is what I came up with.

The second card was inspired by a sketch over at Studio Calico for National Scrapbooking Day. You can find the sketch HERE. The original card design was created by Maile Belles.

Have you been creating any fun cards lately? What are the types of cards you make in the spring? I am trying to think of some new categories for spring besides the typical graduation, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc... Do you have any ideas? I am making new cards for my rapidly depleting card stash and I could use a little help. Let's talk cards.

I will be back tomorrow with another "Scrapbook Organization Thursdays" and will be discussing different ways to keep track of scrappy projects, cards, and other things we are working on, or plan to accomplish in the near future. I will be describing a few different suggestions to help keep you organized. These suggestions really help me spend more time creating and less time asking, "What was I going to work on again when I had time?" If any of this sounds familiar, be sure to check back on Thursday, I would love to have you.

Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
