Easy to make Friendship Cards at Annabelle's Craft Room

While visiting our local craft store (A.C. Moore and Michael's) we found a really cute blank stationary set with pink trim on sale for only $0.99! I always grab up deals like that, because I will find a way to use them.

making handmade cards at Annabelle's Craft RoomAt home, I set up 2 sets of stamps from Stampin' Up!, a stamp pad from the craft store, a corner punch from Creative Memories and my card set. I was able to create this cute set of cards that will be useful for almost any occassion! Plus, this size of card is regular postage. Something I have learned is to not jump for the oversized cards/enevelopes. The postage can take your breathe away!

Always keep your eyes open and get ready to be creative!

New Craft Toy: Scalloped Gift Tag Paper Punch

gift tag paper cutterMy newest craft toy is a scalloped gift tag paper punch that cuts 3 different size tags at the same time! This beauty was purchased at A.C. Moore with a 40% off coupon. I just love buying new craft toys and getting them at a discount!

I had been eyeing this tag cutter for a little while and finally decided it was time to stop handcutting my tags and get a nice easy punch to do it for me!

These tags are so useful for adding dimentions to greeting cards, gift boxes and presents. I love using tags on my presents, it gives a personal touch when someone can see their name on a present. They know it was picked and meant just for them!
