partial sympathy card order

We received an order for 20 sympathy cards, but we were traveling and didn't have time to get to the full order.  For now we delivered a partial order and will work to finish the remaining 11 cards.

Mojo Monday 494

Another great start to the week with participation in the Mojo Monday Sketch....  This time I focused on using scraps for some masculine birthday cards.  I am really liking my new system for using up scraps.  Perhaps I will get through all of them...  😊

Card making mania and scraps galore!

Over the weekend I tackled the daunting task of organizing all my scraps of paper, both patterned paper and card stock alike.  I'm not one to throw out scraps, because I might just be able to use a piece on a card.  😏  In the past I've tried to organize scraps by color, but this time around I decided to cut my patterned pieces into usable sizes for A2 cards.  Then I put them in appropriately labeled envelopes.  For card stock, I first took anything larger than a 4x4 or 6 inch in length for size and put them in file folders by color.  Smaller scraps I cut into various lengths and then placed in appropriately labeled envelopes.  We'll see how this works, but for now I like it. 

I was able to use scraps for the Mojo Monday cards I made this week just by going to the appropriate sizes and finding scraps that would work together. 

In the process of organizing and cleaning up my craft space, I came across some envelopes with precut scraps for cards.  I took one of the envelopes and created all these cards.  Now I have a few cards ready to grab when I need them.  😊

Mojo Monday #493

 I was able to get into my craft space and create this week's church family cards sooner rather than later.  I used the current Mojo Monday Sketch for these cards.

Church birthday round-up

I had very little time and several cards to make.  Fortunately I had been putting together some card bases with scrap paper so all I had to do was add sentiments and embellish for these.

Mojo Monday 492

Checking in with cards for the Mojo Sketch 492...  It's always difficult for me to know how to embellish a card for a more masculine feel. This time I used washi tape.

Thank you!

Between travel and a ball, I had 5 thank you cards to make this week.  I'm so glad I had some pre-cut scraps.  It made putting the cards together so much quicker!

Mojo Monday 491

I had lots of cards to make this week--church family birthday and anniversary cards plus several thank you cards.  I'll be breaking the pictures up in two posts. 

I only used the sketch for one card.  The others were made using scraps I had pre-cut for some patterns in one of my many CTMH sketch books.

Mojo Monday Sketch 490

This week I have a couple of church family birthday cards and a couple of family birthday cards.  I used the sketch for three of the cards, creating both a masculine and two feminine cards with it. 

I absolutely love this last card.  The stamp set with the jar and flowers is from CTMH.  I was so excited to find it at a crafting retreat sale.  The fussy cutting isn't so fun, but I like how it turned out.

Mojo Monday Sketch 489

If it wasn't for making cards for our church family and friends, I don't think I would have taken the time to get any cards made for this week's sketch.  It was a busy week preparing for a Netherfield Ball, which was so much FUN!

Just two cards this week...
