Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

Happy World Card Making Day!


I have a new card for you today in Honor of World Card Making Day 2012. 

  This card was a birthday card for my Father in law, Dale.  I really love the rich color of this card.  I used a designer paper pad from Recollections and for the layered die cut in the back I used the Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart for the cricut using the designer paper and bazzill card stock.  I used the styled labels die from Sizzix for the sentiment die cut. I cut that out from a piece of recycled packaging from a Tim Holtz product.  The Father die cut was made using the Teresa Collins cricut cartridge, Sophisticated.  I cut that out with bazzill card stock and white cover stock from Ga pacific. The seam binding is some Hug Snug white and I used Juniper glimmer mist to color it.  I just love the colors of this card.  I hope Dale likes it and I hope you do too.  I'll be back tomorrow with another card.  I hope you enjoy the rest of World Card Making day today.  Go and  make something crafty!
