Memories

Memories

                                              Do you have a Memory Box?

     Mine is a long rectangular cardboard box that used to  hold a dozen roses.The roses  were a gift from my husband because we had just found out that we were expecting our first child after many years of trying. The box contains greeting cards from loved ones, snippets of clothing, trinkets of childhood, awards etc.

As I write this, a song sung by Barbara Streisand “The way we were” keeps playing in my head. I had to get  my Kindle and play part of it.

     Why not create a card today for the special person who has a place of honor in your memory box?

Adventures in Card-Making

Paper Adventures

Dear Fellow Crafters,          envelope-liners

Today’s topic is designing envelopes. I have been designing envelopes for years. I always felt that after spending time making the card, I needed to “jazz” the envelope to showcase the card. Here are some of the things I’ve done. They’re all relatively easy, as you probably have the stamps, die cuts and paper on your craft table already.

  •      If the card has a simple design, say balloons and a simple sentiment, stamp or hand-draw a balloon or other birthday image on the lower left corner of the envelope.
  •      If the card has a lot of embellishments, stamp or hand-write a similar image on the back flap.
  •      Sending a card to a child? Try using the “to and from” stamp set or stamp the name in letters.
  •      Change the envelope flap by using decorative cut scissors or your cutter. Most envelopes have enough paper on the flap to allow fancy cutting but if you go “overboard” just use glue to the edge or seal.
  •      Be sure the address is clearly visible through any design.
  •      The entire envelope design should be stamped in lighter colors so that the address and postmark are visible.

The most fun I have had is creating liners for the envelopes. This is really easy.

  1.      Place an open envelope over a piece of your liner paper. Use paper not cardstock. Wrapping paper works well too.
  2.      Trace around the flap and down the sides about 2″.
  3.      Trim the flap edge to fit inside the envelope and test fit the entire liner.
  4.      Glue  the edge of the envelope.

*****Important: Place the glue on the flap liner only. This keeps the envelope lining from buckling when the envelope is closed.

What you can learn from the Easter Bunny

What you can learn from the Easter Bunny

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Walk softly and carry a big carrot. Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. There’s no such thing as too much candy. All work and no play can make you a basket case.

Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day. Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits. Keep your paws off other people’s jellybeans. Good things come in sugar-coated packages. The grass is greener in someone else’s basket. An Easter bonnet can tame the wildest hare. To show your true colors you have to come out of the shell.

Happy Easter everybody!         Bunny on
