One Sticker - Two Cards

These are not your Mother's stickers...or my own, for that matter.  Remember the early days of scrapbooking / card making and your local store had rolls and rolls of stickers?

Yes, I have a small stash of those.  Bet you do too.

I found these 4-in-1 stickers a few years ago at a clearance store.  I bought 12 of them, thinking they would make a quick card.

Well, 2 years later and 12 hours before my card group met for lunch and exchange, I put them to use!  And yes, they really did make a quick card!

Even better, I'm going to get two months worth of cards out of these stickers.

When you have to make 12 cards every month, the trick is to keep your eye out for multi-packs.  Or in this case, a clearance price that makes it worth it.

Amazingly, I found these still available online: Memories Complete.  They are called Dollar Stickers. 

They are $1 each online, but I found a coupon code of 30% off (MC30).  They are located in Lindon, UT...maybe they would allow pickups?
 
I actually pulled out a stamp for this card!  (I really need to start stamping again.)  I needed some kind of sentiment to fit into the circle.  A few more great stash items: Prima flowers, some gem brads and the old 'little extra' standby, glitter glue!

Super quick, bright and just what I needed in my card file: Wedding cards!  It seems like everyone is getting married this month!

Totally cute card! Although what you call a "quick" card and what I do are usually 2 different things! LOL
PS: I need to stamp more too:)
