Hello friends and Happy Holidays! I hope you are enjoying this winter season and are getting a bit of a break from your regular routine.
A few of us on the Fancy Friday team are sharing one last hop for the 2018 year. Who are we? The Fancy Friday team is a group of talented Stampin' Up! Artisan's, both past and present. We hop once a month, on the last Friday of the month. If you are new here my name is Charlet Mallett and I was a member of the 2018 Artisan Design team.
We have big goals for the upcoming year. How about you? One of my goals is to actually send the cards I make. This would be huge. I really need to subscribe to the #makeacardsendacard idea. With that in mind our challenge this month was to create multiple cards that we could send throughout the year. I often only make one card of a particular design and I figured why not head into a little mass production to give me more mailing options in 2019.
I’m always in need of birthday cards and opted to use the new Saleabration freebie set, Hello Cupcake, to make a birthday card. I created this card in Balmy Blue and pulled in a few additional new products from the Occasions catalog and Saleabration promotion. A full list of supplies for all cards can be found at the end of this post.
Once the first card was finished I realized it would be a breeze to swap out colors and sentiments for a variety of occasions. So I created additional cards in Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight.
Now I just need to get organized. How do you manage your mailings? Do you tackle it monthly? Weekly? Or spur of the moment? I’m typically a spur of the moment (oh crap I need to send a card) kind of gal. I think I might try a monthly approach set aside an hour or so at the beginning of the month to address and write the cards out for that month. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes. I seem to start big like a bursting balloon and deflate a little as the year goes on.
Like these cards? Want to make them? Check out the supply list below.
I would LOVE to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. If you live in the United States you can order your paper crafting supplies from my online store. So easy. THANK YOU!
