Thank You to All My Cardmaking Friends

When I logged on today, I realized that it has been over two and a half months since I have posted anything here.  Many of you know why, but, for those who don’t, I wanted to post a quick update and send a huge thank you to my cardmaking friends.  In early November, I become very sick and spent six weeks in isolation.  I am still battling a few aftereffects, but I want you to know that this post is not going to be about that adventure, but about the wonderful friends who kept my spirits up during that time. 

As a cardmaker with a perfectionist spirit, there have been so many times that I have started a card or created a card and tossed it right into the trash. (gasp) I also have quite a collection of cards that are sitting in my craft space collecting dust (you, too, huh?)  It wasn’t until recently, while I was ill, that I realized how important sending a card can be. 

Do you see all those cards?? Those amazing messages were sent to me during the two months I was ill.  During my time in isolation, my heart and mind were full of worry, sadness, and loneliness – but it was these cards that poured in each day that kept my spirts up. 

Inside each one was a message of hope and encouragement.  You can’t imagine the joy this brought to my soul.  In my little room, on my comfy purple chair, I spent each day reading through your cards and feeling blessed by those who took a few minutes out of their day to send me a message of hope.  I wish I could thank each one of you personally, but since I can’t, I created a short little video full of inspiration for all of my cardmaking friends. 


As I said in my video, I hope that you understand how important cards can be. It doesn’t have to be perfect or handmade or full of embellishments or filled with inspiring words of wisdom –  cards are a gift to those who receive them.

Again, thank you so much to everyone who sent me well wishes these past few months. God has sent each one of you into my life for a reason and I am forever blessed because of each of you.  

I still have some healing to do and it will be a few months before I am 100%, but I know that this could have been so much worse and I am grateful it wasn’t.  

I encourage you to set aside a few minutes this week to write a little note of encouragement to someone and send it off in the mail. You never know how much impact a little card can have.

Creating a Card with Love of Color

How many times have you tried to pick out colors for a project, drug out the color wheel, and become frustrated that nothing seems to match? OR do you stick with a set of colors you know will always work? Well, my friend, today is the day to venture out of your color comfort zone.  I am going to show you a simple way to choose a palette for your project using the Love of Color idea book.  

If you are a member of my Create with Miss. Carrie VIP Group, you had a chance to see this card created during my Fab Friday Find video.  I walked you through this wonderful Love of Color book and showed you how to make this card using our September stamp set

This how-to book is designed to help you find complementarity colors for your projects.  On this card, I knew that I wanted to use the Desert Rose cardstock, but I wasn’t quite sure which colors would match.  All I had to do was open up the book to “Desert Rose” and I was shown multiple options for projects and color combinations. 

Not only was I able to find a color palette to match Desert Rose, I was also inspired by one of the projects in the book.  This how-to book is FULL of projects you can create using the color combinations shown.  It even tells you where to find the cutting guide in our other how-to books. 

For those of you who may have missed out on the Fab Friday Find Video, here is a modified version of the video showing you the Love of Color idea book and the card making process. The full-length version can be viewed in my VIP Group.  

This card was really simple to make and fun to create using the Love of Color palette suggestions. I would have never thought to pair Desert Rose with Mint and Ballerina. 

I hope that this project inspired you to venture outside your “color comfort zone” and try a few new colors in your designs.  I know that having this book helps me to consider new combinations and I am often inspired by the projects within. 

If you would like to purchase either of the Love of Color books or any of our How-to Books, you can do so on my website.  Most of these books fit right inside our 6″ x 8″ Every Day Life Binders making it easy to flip through and transport.   

If you would like to recreate this card, make sure that you snag that September stamp of the month before September 30th. This stamp set is available for only $5.00 with any $50 purchase.
