I am a paper crafter and I just love all the tools and toys to come join in and play with me and my paper. My forte and expertise lie in the scrapbooking end of paper crafting. Don't get me wrong, I do other things with my paper, however I am more confident and creative when I scrapbook. Saying all that, I do make cards too. I am just not very good at it, or maybe it is better said that I am just okay at it. When I purchased my very first cricut machine in March 2008 was when I decided I was not ever going to purchase another store bought card, as I had plenty of scraps and supplies on hand to create my own cards. Before that time, I spent a TON of money at the Hallmark store each year. However how I like to supplement my card making is with kits and if you have never purchased an Anna Griffin card making kit, you are missing out! So today's tip is buy a kit:
I made these 20 cards in a few hours from start to finish. Anna Griffin card kits are all inclusive except for a tape runner. You get the card bases, the card decorative layers, embellishments, exterior sentiments, interior card liners with sentiments, satin bows, a place to sign your name on the back, and foam squares. All you have to do it select your items from the coordinating pieces supplied and assemble. This was the All About Love card kit and it was perfect to put together with Valentine's Day right around the corner. The best part about Anna's kits are, you can literally put eight embellishments on per card and still have leftovers for other projects.
This same tip is great for card makers that might not be as confident making scrapbook pages. Buy a kit! Just assemble and add photos and you're done! I hope you enjoyed my tip today and it inspires you to get crafting this weekend. Leave me a comment and let me know.
