A Few Cards to Share
I have been slow to post lately. Just realized that my boys will soon be out of school, so I am taking a few Wednesdays off to scrapbook. Last Wednesday I made these two cards. I used Reminisce's Graduation Formal Swirl (Black glittered paper), Sizzix's Dress & Accessories Die, and Cuttlebugs Swiss dot Folder. This Sizzix die is one of the few I saved when I bought my Cricut. I love anything with a dress form!
The second card is made with Jill D-Zines Digi-Cuts Simple shapes, George Basic Shapes and Lyrical Letters, Basic Grey Boxer paper and stickers. It is so hard to find male themed paper and cuts, and I find myself making cut files whenever I have to make a male birthday card. Find Jill D-Zine's cut files for sale here. I love the picot edges to her shapes!
Along with taking a few days off, I am busy working to promote my stores on Etsy. Sales have been slow and the craft money budget is cut every year by my hubby. I find that to make sales, I must spend as much time promoting as I do creating items for the shop.
