I just finished cleaning up my kitchen after my card party this afternoon (we stamp in the dining room since right now all my stamping stuff is on tv trays and a bookcase in there). Today, in addition to the ladies who were stamping with me, their young daughters were with us as well (ages 4 and 10). Now, the DH’s were in the living room “watching the children” while we stamped. But like many guys, they got distracted by TV and video games, so the girls came in and wanted to make cards too. Thankfully I have a HUGE pile of scrap paper and old stickers that I could never bring myself to throw out because “it’s still good, I might use it one day”. 🙂 So, I let them have at those items and some of my older stamps. I have a feeling they might grow into crafters. 🙂
Anyway, today we made 3 cards and one magazine holder for the cards. I was going to have us make a box or bag but decided since I was in such a groove with the holders (and they are so multi-functional) that we should do that instead. So, I wanted to share with you what we made. I have to admit, the cards are CASEd off of some very talented stampers on SCS. I wasn’t in the designing mood, so I found inspiration online. Hope you like them!

These look fabulous! That is exactly what I do with my girls..
they have to have their own stash. Have a good evening!
Jennifer, Thanks for your creative inspirations. I love your blog!!
Loved making the card holder and think I MUST make another! I have put it to use and it is stuffed with cards already 🙂 I guess I could give them (the cards) away but they feel like my little babies…ya know?
Sounds like fun was had by all. Your ladies should have liked those cards.
That sounds like so much fun and the cards are great. I like the card holder and will have to go to SCS and learn how to do that.
Well, from scrolling down on your blog, I see that you have provided us with the information on how to make the card holder – I will surely try that today – Thanks !!!!
