Card box project...

I fell in love with this card box when I found it on Life on the Beach with Kathryn.   I knew immediately that I must make it for all the cards from my card swaps.  It was a fun weekend project.

The box is made from chipboard and pattern paper.  It is quite large and will hold enough cards for a full year.  The box has twelve monthly dividers with a calendar on the front of the dividers to remember all those birthdays.   It has sub dividers for all those other occasions also.     No more searching through disorganized boxes to find just the right card for just the right occasion.  I can open the card box, go to the right month or sub divider and find a card within minutes.  How easy is that?
  • I can also replenish the cards at my leisure to keep the box filled.  This new organizational system will have me sending more cards than ever before.  I'm lovin' it!

Scrap book pages...

Hi again,
I wanted to share with you some of the scrapbook pages I've made in the classes I've been taking.  The photo on the left is the interactive page for January.  The front folds up into two sections, one side a pop up.  This was such a fun page that will hold many photos. 

This next page is the interactive page for March.  The photo mat on the front opens to reveal eight extra spaces.  It is held closed by a clear acrylic flower with paper flower on top.  This page will hold a total of fifteen photos or journal boxes including the five by seven on the front of the page. 

The page on the right is the regular page for April.  Next month we will do the interactive page for April plus the regular page for May.  The punch used on these pages is the Flower Burst by EK Success.  Enjoy!

March card swap....

Hello Ladies,
Casey by Design meetup group had it's March card swap this past week at a local restaurant.  We had nine ladies making Easter cards to swap.  The cards were all nicely done.  The cards were clean, elegant, whimsical, and colorful.  I think all the ladies did an outstanding job with their cards.

We had a wonderful evening chatting, eating and just catching up.  We all look forward to getting together every month and exchanging ideas.  A theme for next months card swap hasn't been decided yet but will be posted in the near future.   If you are interested in joining us go to Casey by Design meetup group and sign up.  We would love to have you join us. 

Excuse the poor photo, wanted to get these pictures posted tonight and didn't use the flash.  Enjoy!
