Happy New Years Card Making!

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years! We are experiencing a huge storm in Northern California. Spending time inside, drinking hot chocolate, watching movies, making bracelets with Malena is such a nice treat from all the yard work we have been doing lately!

On Wednesday, UPS delivered my card making supplies from Paper Source – nothing like doing things at the last minute! That night, I traced 81 envelopes onto star-printed vellum paper. On Thursday night, I was a one-woman sweatshop cutting out, folding and gluing the envelopes and hand writing the address labels and messages.

And what would I have done without my dandy little adhesive roller! Every time I rolled the tape across the envelope or picture, I thought, “what a great invention and please don’t break on me now!” I have had bad luck with these contraptions in the past. This year, I tried a different brand, Therm O Web (I love their craft adhesive products.) that worked flawlessly. Whew, what a timesaver.

Wow, you are brave to do all those cards! Sound like a fun project. That white and stars velum is beautiful. Can't wait to see you guys this week!
