happy world card making day!



Hello and welcome to World Card Making Day! I am celebrating right alongside so many other paper crafters.

Like many card makers, I started out using stamps to make cards (back in 1994, gulp!). I soon followed as a scrapbooker, and I'm now involved in both equally.

One thing I have found is that some of my favorite cards are made with scrapbook supplies and not with rubber stamps. So, today I'm encouraging all of you card-making blog hoppers to look through your scrapbooking stash and find that perfect piece you've been hoarding and make a card today. Make a card for your best friend, make a holiday card, or make a card for your honey!


Here are two cards I made just for today. Totally cute, huh?! I thought so! They are Halloween cards using some of the pieces from K&Co.'s new Halloween line. Couldn't resist!!

I also used borders from Making Memories, patterned paper from both Sassafras Lass and DCWV, Making Memories mini letters, and Making Memories pre-made card kits (so convenient!)



If you are doing the Paper Crafts blog hop, here is where you can go to find the rest of the wonderful paper crafters participating in the blog. There are discounts and plenty of inspiration on these blogs, so please go and check them out.

Also, Memories Always - Forever is hosting a WCMD challenge. We're giving away more than $75 worth of prizes, just for sharing with us your card and what inspires you to create. (THAT'S IT! JUST POST ANY CARD AND TELL US WHAT INSPIRES YOU AND YOU CAN WIN!)

And... (I'm not done yet!) I had to get in on the action here. I'm giving away a $10 gift card to Scrap Freak just for visiting today. Leave a comment, let me know you were here, and let me know if you plan on creating anything today. I'd love to visit your WCMD blog, so let me know if you are participating so I can stop by.

Thanks again for visiting. I can't wait to see what is created today!

Hi Diana, love your halloween cards - they are so cute and totally spook-tacular! I am planning to make a few 'thank you' cards today and also to flip through my lovely, shiny new Stampin' Up catalogue as it has just dropped through my letterbox! I have posted a little card made to celebrate WCMD and have a teeny, tiny giveaway over at my blog - so please drop by if you get the chance! Happy crafting, Jo x

Seriously cute cards! The blog looks great BTW! I scrapped all day but sadly never got around to a card. Too busy on a mini, a crazy project for scrapfreak and my recipe class.

Beth Warren said...

Love your cards, and happy WCMD! I'd love to win your giveaway!

The Halloween cards are adorable. I saw the papers you used at Scrappy chic when I stopped in to pick up a few things. I had the dotted paper in my hand twice, but left with another paper instead. Very cute!!!! I plan to make a card today to put in my blog in honor of Happy World Card Making day.
