I Love You

I spent the weekend catching up on my stamp carving classes, printing pictures to scrap, and cleaning up the craft room. I haven't printed photos in quite a while, so that is why I have been making so many cards lately. Not that I don't enjoy making cards, because I do. I actually started out with card making way before I scrapbooked.

When I began working on my stamp classes, I told myself that not only would I learn to carve the stamps, but that I would actually use the ones that I did. This weekend, I used the tiny heart that I carved and combined it with an Ali Edwards sentiment.

The cards are a 3 x 3 square that I punched using the Martha Stewart punch around the page set. (I used two different punches.) The base of the card is a 2 x 2 card that is glued to the back of each piece. When opened, the card stands on the desk like a small picture frame. The sentiment in the card reads, "I love you so much!"


What did you create this weekend?

Awww, those are so cute--great idea on using the border punches that way. I went to a crop on Friday, but only got two layouts done, but I did a TON of organizing of my scrapbook papers this weekend.
