First off I wanted to share with you all an awesome link party taking place at One Tough Mother. Kirsten is hosting a special link party. What's so special? Well, you have to use a particular material to link up to this party. This month is burlap, so if you have a burlap project you have done or going to do link it up to One Tough Mother. Link party is live now and will close by January 22, 2013.
I wanted to give you some ideas for those beautiful Christmas cards you received from family and friends. I hate to toss any kind of greeting cards for one main reason greeting cards are so expensive. So, here are some of the ways I try to use greeting, birthday, Christmas cards. I incorporate them in my scrape book, or make post cards out of them, gift tags, labels, use them as a matte in picture frames, use as art and I decoupage with them.
I love to make them all different sizes and by using ribbon, twin, buttons, glitter or just about anything to embellish these lovely tags or post cards. Also do you see on the bottom back these two vintage Christmas cards? I gave those to my aunt back in 74 & 75. She saved them after all these years love! Do you see that handsome Santa Claus card? It came from a dear blogger all the way from the UK. This card is an actually photo she took and made into a card. You can see her beautiful work at - www.etsy.com/shop/LittlePhotoHut.
Don't tosses those expensive greeting cards out instead reused them and give them new life. Thank you for stopping by and LOVE you SWEET comments, so drop me a line. Have a great day!
