Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop...

Hello and welcome to the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop! (If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, click HERE.) You should be arriving here from Jamie's blog. I was thrilled when I was asked by my sweet friend Britta to be a part of this hop.

So what makes me a young crafter? It has nothing to do with my age but my memories associated with this hobby. Ever since I was little, my favorite aisle in any store was the craft aisle. Why? Because they had aisles and aisles of markers, crayons, scissors, notebooks, pretty paper and I remember just being smitten with it. In fact, I made my first scrapbook when I was seven using a three ring binder, loose leaf paper, a pen, and a glue stick. Oh how far I've come! ;) So no matter how much older I get, I still feel like a giddy little girl when it comes to this hobby. I'm happiest when I'm creating.

So now I want to share with you my project for today...

This is one card in a set that I made for my sister-in-law who is having her fourth child TODAY! Baby Molly will be here very soon and I thought what mother of four has time to even go to the store for thank you cards!?

I chose to share a card set today because it is my FAVORITE thing to do. My signature. Why make one card when you can make a bunch at one time! :)

So I made a set of these cards and included the envelopes and stamps...
I packaged them up and added some fabric to create a bow...
  
You can see more of my favorite card sets I've done in the past HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. I told ya I like to do card sets! ;)

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave comments along the way. We love to hear from you AND you could win prizes! Randomly selected commenters throughout the hop will have the opportunity to win some great prizes.

The next stop on the hop is CHARI MOSS. Enjoy!

So cute!

AmyJRockstar said...

These are really very cute. I'm just learning how to make sets. I have a very hard time duplicating. I love to make every single card completely different and unique, but it takes up soooo much time. In fact, just made my first actual SET of cards just a few days ago. They turned out pretty cute. Thanks for the inspiration. I'm in the hop too! Be sure to swing by if you haven't already. :0)

Great card set!! I have that onesie stamp and love to use it on patterned paper as well. It's so useful! I just made a card set for a gift and am always amazed at how happy people get to receive them!! I use a template from splitcoaststampers to make a box .. works well.
