Are you like me and you seem to have lots of cards but none just right the card you want to send? Or maybe you like to swap card fronts to have lots of inspiration, but the stack is growing and you need to clear out some of them? Or maybe your goal is card making, but your room is filled with cards and you need room for more stamps? It’s time to send cards!

First of all, keep track of your friends’ birthdays and other important events. Add them as recurring events on the calendar on your phone or computer (and add the addresses to make life even easier for yourself) or use the calendar I shared earlier this year.

Next, redesign the cards and card fronts you have. You can even reuse cards others have sent to you! This video shows several ways to re-purpose your cards. Get those cards in the mail!

I hope you didn’t lose your coupon you earned in July with the Bonus Days promotion…

 

It’s time to shop now!

You can use that coupon for anything, but you may want to choose Carols of Christmas. It will be in the 2017 holiday catalog, but you can order it now.

You’re almost out of time to get this stamp set, Designer Tee and you can get it free with a qualifying order ($50 in the U.S.) from the Sale-a-Bration promotion from Stampin’ Up! It was designed to work with the Custom Tee stamp set and the T-Shirt Builders Framelits, but I think it can carry its own weight by itself.

grateful-bunch-birthday

I received a lot of compliments for this card. I owe it all to the stamp set! Grateful bunch is one of those versatile sets that I think would be great for beginners. You won’t need the Big Shot for this one either. I did want a birthday card though. None of the sentiments seemed right, so I used Birthday Blossoms.

basket-of-wishes

This card looks complicated and difficult, but don’t let it fool you! It’s quick, easy, and inexpensive. It uses the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, but you will not need the Big Shot! I used a Circle punch, but you could just cut out a square or rectangle. You can do it!
