I was in the Sandy Roberts a few weeks ago and my friend, Paula, who is always so on top of things and just a big awesome help, pointed out some adorable valentine paper by Making Memories, that was 60% off.
I have a hard time resisting just about anything that is 60% off. But I stood there, paper in hand, turning it this way and that and basically designing a card in my head.
"Valentine's is over, but this would work for a Wedding card...Those hearts would be really easy to cut out and have so much pretty detail."
I did the math. "21 hearts from each sheet of paper. 10 cards for .32 cents...plus the other paper, cardstock etc..., still really, less than .50 a card. Not including the envelope. Darn! Those square envelopes are so expensive!"
Yes, I really had all those thoughts as I stood in front of the paper turnstile, looking rather zombie-like.
I love it when I have an idea, go home and actually do it. Right away. Card club is always a great excuse to get cracking with cards. I took the hearts to bed. Made a big paper mess and finished everything up the next morning. Cutting it close, but I made it.
Since I bought more than 1 sheet of hearts, guess what? I made extra cards and I would love to share a few of them with you. Tell me about the best deal you got in a scrapbooking store and I'll send cards off to the winners. Be sure to check back and email me with your mailing address. I'll be posting the winners on Wednesday night. Good luck!
