Floral Thank You Card Interior

Fast Fabulous Thank You Cards

Fast Fabulous Thank You CardsHello!

Today I wanted to share with you one of my recent paper craft projects- these fast, but fabulous, thank you cards.

With the exception of the “Thank You” I added on the inside of the card, this project needs no fancy die cut machine. Just a pair of scissors and a ruler (I used my Fiskars paper trimmer to save time.) Even a non-crafter can tackle this DIY. 

A few simple layers and beautiful patterned card stock with foil really make this project stand out. These little cards are perfect for saying thanks- fast.

Project Life Mood Book: Triangles

Hello World!

My journaling adventure this week was inspired by a freebie pattern set I acquired from CREATIVE MARKET.  

Every week, starting on Monday, they give away a handful of free content for those registered with a free account. The free items vary, but they often include digital graphics or fonts. This week I was like a kid in a candy store grabbing them all. These particular items are free 8/10/15 – 8/16/15.

Creative Market Free Goods

If you are an artist or crafty individual, or wish you were and want to gaze at pretty things-Creative Market is the place!

You won’t stop at the freebies either. Once you start browsing you will inevitably buy something. All items come with at least a Simple License, meaning you can use the item for personal use. Imagine the possibilities for greeting cards, invitations, wall art- or in my case, Project Life cards.

I had been searching for the perfect paper to use for this photo, and I was immediately inspired by the Triangle Seamless Pattern set by Curly_Pat. I used my Silhouette software to create 3×4″ journal cards from these patterns which I then printed and cut. The other embellishments were made from scrapbook paper and various stamps. I am especially fond of the hand stamped camera pattern- and I will definitely use this technique again.
