Works for Me Wednesday
I kind of struggled thinking up something for this Wednesday Workin', but I finally was inspired by something I saw at a friends' site:
Handmade Note cards are so much cuter and reflect your personality so much better than things Hallmark sells. And it's easier than you think to make your own cards!
Start with some card stock in your favorite color (already cut to size or cut it yourself), some do-dahs to decorate with (I like rubber stamps, ribbons, stickers, and Trish likes knitted bits), then go at it. Get the items into a design or pattern you like and go for it!
If you need some hints or ideas, try visiting Stampin' Up! for free layout ideas (and some GREAT *cough*addictive*cough* rubber stamps). If you like scrapbooking, card making is a natural off shoot.
Your first few attempts may not be as pretty as you like, but SOMEONE will know that you made this with them in mind, made it yourself. And the kids will think it's SO cool that they will want to get in on the fun. Two problems solved in one mighty mom swoop! Works for me...
