July 2013 - Creative Cards

Thank you all so much for your continued support. Last month (june) was my most successful month ever. I loved the cards and am planning more chalkboard ideas as well as a pop 'n cut card now and then!

This month I've teamed up with Eileen Hull. I've created most of these cards using her beautiful die-cut designs. Mason Jars, Jelly Jars and doily shapes as well as some polaroid frames round out the vintage feel. Hope you enjoy creativg with them too.

Before you get started here is a little video with a couple simple tecniques you can use you add a special touch to your cards.

 

Ready to get started on the cards?

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks
