RJS and EJS trading cards type scrapbook album page made on 1/7/2015. Yesterday was a snow day for me so I took time for my creative therapy (yes that's what I call it) and created these ATC (artist trading cards) with a winter theme and 2 of my favorite colors--purple and pink.My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate 19 years of marriage, so even though it doesn't necessarily look lovey-dovey, it was made with loving intentions!
My husband and I share the same middle initial. That made how to create a layout for this style album page very easy for me.

Husband's card on inside--simple but I like better than the cover?!?!!!Hard to imagine but it happens from time to time. The cover and inside ended up competing for too much visual attention. I have to remember if I have a visually busy cover then I need to have a simple inside. Maybe this should be my craft resolution for the new year!!!!!

Monday, July 7, 2014
The card was easy to put together for these reasons:
a. the birthday candles were already wrapped with the baker's twine (was going to use several weeks ago and changed mind--now am glad because the color mix goes so perfectly with the pre-printed card)
b. the multiple print happy birthday patterned paper is actually a 3-inch section cut from a pre-printed card purchased from Hot Off the Press (Paper Wishes website or catalog to purchase)
c. the scalloped circle opening in the card base was purchased that way from Studio G (purchased at Wal-Mart)
d. stenciled number ruler and 'congratulations' wood stamp made the other decorative touches easy
Wa-hoo for cute, charming, and easy to create!!!
