Cheap find! And a 2 minute card.

Don't walk so quickly past that dollar bin!

I found a cute pack of round,
scalloped blank cards at Michael's.
For a buck!
They are flimsy, but I always mat them inside and out
so who cares?

I punched holes all the way around with my Big Bite,
Then adhered some cardstock, washi tape, twine,
and a sentiment sticker from Basic Grey.

Cheap and easy!

Have you found any thrifty supplies lately?

Sew Easy? Not so much.

With a Michael's gift card burning a hole in my pocket,
I finally broke down and bought a Sew Easy.
{ Thanks, Mom! }

I love it, but there is a definite learning curve.
{Getting those lines straight is going to take some practice.}

Are you ooohing and ahhhing?!

It's that paper! Thanks to the enabling Cassie over at
I snatched the Country Boutique 6x6 pad from
right up.

See that gorgeous washi tape?
Cassie again. It's from Freckled Fawn.

In short, if you're looking for the latest and greatest in the paper world you can't go wrong at Paper Issues.
No, she didn't pay me to say that.
I'm simply floored by her fast, friendly customer service and
overwhelming supply of crafty goodness!

Happy Saturday!

I have some super cute and OH SO EASY cards to share today.

I trimmed some rectangular card blanks to make them square
{because I LOVE square cards}
grabbed one of my favorite paper packs
{MME On The Sunny Side}
and some gorgeous paper flower diecuts from Sassafras
{part of the AMAZING giveaway I won from Sherry at My Favorite Things}.
Oh, and a tiny bit of twine and a couple buttons.

And away I went!

Aren't they pretty? I must admit that the insides are blank.
I'll probably add a strip of coordinating cardstock and leave them blank to use as notecards.

What are you working on this weekend?

Another Paper Bag Mini

Today I'm sharing a paper bag mini album
that I made for a friend.

Have you ever made something for a fellow crafter?

It's a little nerve-wracking!

At first I tried not to put too much of my "style" into it, but I eventually gave up and just had fun with it.

Front cover.

1st and 2nd pages.

Tags for journaling.

These tuck right into the "pockets" of the album.

Tri-fold for photos.

3rd and 4th pages.

Lots of mini tags. LOVE that butterfly.

Another tri-fold for smaller photos.

5th and 6th pages.

More tags and ephemera. 

7th and 8th pages.

You got it, more tags!

Top view.

Back cover.

And that's it. I hope she likes it!
