Handmade Cards-Paper Crafting Thursday

The winners of last week's paper crafting are Leann and Roberta Anne. Please email me your addresses and I'll get your prizes in the mail!

I'm doing something a little different this week. Instead of giving you exact measurements for a card, I'm showing you what you can do with a simple pattern and various paper, stamps, stickers and ribbon. I made these cards last Friday night, mostly from paper in my scrap drawer.
Butterfly card
Here is the basic pattern.

You can add layers, round or cut corners.

Lots of different looks! Thanks for stopping by for a visit and let me know if you make some of your own.

~More Homemade Cards~

A few more things I've made recently...
St. Patrick's Day tags
Just in time for St. Patrick's Day.

Journaling spots
I made several new things this week, including these bird themed journaling spots for scrapbook pages.

Bookmarks
And some various bookmarks.

Items can be found in my Etsy Shop! Thank you for stopping by for a visit!


Paper Craft Fun: Post any kind of paper craft (card, bookmark, tag, banner, journal, etc.) on your blog between now and next week and come sign Mr. Linky. Next Thursday, I will draw two of the names and the winners will receive supplies for a homemade card: blank notecard, envelope, and an assortment of scrapbook paper, stickers (or stamped images), and ribbon. Link back here in your post, so that others will know where to join in the fun, too!

ETA: Starting next week, I'm going to be posting the Paper Crafting projects every Wednesday.

Hi Kelli;
All your cards are so pretty. You mentioned that you made the bird themed journaling spots for scrapbook pages. I'd love to see a few of your scrapbook pages sometime.

You're such an inspiration! I really must try, find the time to go through my boxes of miracles (as I call the boxes in which I store away everything I may need)and give it a go.

Clare said...

I just love them all , and I am a really big fan of butterflies.

Tina Leigh said...

Hey Debbi....if I come to Washington, I'm gonna show you how to blog! LOL!

Hi Kelli! These are so pretty! You're really good. I've tried my hand at homemade cards, but mine are always so bulky and never look gorgeous like yours!

There are some individual stamps on Ebay right now though. Good luck!

Great job, Kelli! How is Benjamin feeling?

Julie said...

I LOVE the Kiss Me cards...but maybe that is because my birthday is on St. Patricks Day!

When you have time, please come read a story I posted about my husband and keep him in your prayers.

Lisa Ann said...

Your cards are always so beautiful!

Barbara said...

I hope my entry counts, it's not a purely paper since it was making magnets. If it doesn't feel free to remove it :)

My favorite is the inspiration bookmark, so gorgeous! I love your cards, they are always so beautiful. And I just love all the bird stamped items you make. They feel like spring :)

Susan B said...

Everything is so beautiful! I love the cards, and the bookmarks! You are very creative.

Jessica said...

You've got a good thing goin' here! Everything looks so nice and inspirational.

Cute, kiss me tags.

Dianne said...

Kelli, you really have a way with papers and I can see you as a collage artist too! Ever try doing 'bits and pieces' art?

Kelly said...

Ahh, I'm going ga-ga over them all! I love the bird stuff that you just did - and the #3 card is just divine. The black and white reminds me of a gallery of black and white line drawings that we just hung in our new house, and I really like how you juxtaposed it on a colorful background.

My paper craft this last week was a paper bag book ~ It was a small project, but designed around a big challenge during a tough time in my life.
