I picked up a new paper pack at the H-L store. 40% off ya know. It is a paper pack from My Minds Eye called Simply Delightful. Love that this paper pack is very versatile and on sale. I took 3 coordinating pages of the paper and made a total of 11 cards.
I usually just make a front for my card. I don't place it on card stock until I decide to mail it or give it away. That saves me on the card stock and if I don't like the "front" I can trash it with out feeling like I wasted the "whole" thing. I also can send the "fronts" through my big xyron machine and really make the fronts stick. I do use the card stock if I am building a front that I need to know the exact size of the card. Like if I'm using strips of paper or using just card stock as the background. Out of the 3 coordinating papers I made just 3 "real cards" the other 8 are just "fronts".
I guess the next big learning hurdle to jump now is to figure out how to get the pictures on my blog.
I'll try and photography the papers and the cards and get the pictures on the blog SOON.
