Lots of Cards and Other Things

Lots of Cards

How many are required for cards to be classified as “Lots of Cards”? – 50, 100, 150, 200 …..?

I recon that, in the last 18 months I’ve made “Lots of Cards”.

My gallery of photos of finished items that I’ve got up on craftsUprint currently includes:

740 items

Of course, not all of them have been cards.  I’ve used backgrounds to make boxes with gift tag, display stands for jewellery, box/card combinations, and bags.  These are just one each of each of those different types of things.

And things like these I use with my other crafting hobby of making various Jewellery items, many of which are presented in the boxes for giving as gifts for birthday’s and Christmas.



I had thought of picking an assortment of cards as well to show you, but rather than me picking out lots of examples of my work to showcase in this blog post, why don’t you go to have a look at the cards I’ve made using design sheets from CUP in my “Crafter Showcase Area” on Craftsuprint.com – here

(Just scroll down past the top boxes to see the cards and click through the various pages.)

Why don’t you pick out some of your favourites and leave me a comment to say which ones they are?


And are these 740 items made using digital designs downloaded from craftsUprint the only ones I’ve made during those 18 months?

Oh No!

There’s been lots of Christmas cards made by recycling old cards to be sold to help the Sunday School at our chapel.  Also over 60 Christmas cards of my own design for us to send out as a family last year.  Designed to be a simple reminder of the Nativity story with a wax seal star holding a verse from the Bible about the star the wise men followed, all on a dark coloured background sparkling with a glitter spray.

There’s also been the special cards – Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Anniversaries, Parent’s Birthdays, etc.  Many of these you will already have seen in various posts if you are regular readers of my blog.

And the projects currently whizzing around my brain waiting for them to come together into proper ideas –

a congratulations card, two Golden Wedding cards, and the big batch of Christmas cards for us to send out as a family this year … …  I Really do need to get my brain in gear don’t I?
