Happy World Card Making Day! Projects, prizes, videos and more!


Happy World Card Making Day friends!

Its one of the best days of the year! A reason to make cards all day long! The idea behind this celebration was to kick off the holiday card making season. So, in honor of that, I have tons of projects, tips, videos, links, and prizes for you! Stay tuned to my blog all day for updates and more links!

Links for you to check out:

Get all the details and there is a chance to win a HUGE prize!
Plus, get linked up to the sponsors of today!

Sign up to share your projects with other card makers, and see what they have in store for you too!

There will be posts all day here!

You know there will be great challenges, inspiration, prizes, and I heard about some cool freebies!


On my blog later today, I will be focusing on holiday themed cards, with an emphasis on cards that are easy to mail. I have a cool technique and lots of tips to share. But...you can't talk about holiday cards and not have someplace to display all the beautiful cards that arrive in the mail!


This card holder was created with the latest in products from Jillibean Soup. Mix the Media is a line of gorgeous products for creating projects for your home. Large Metal Hanger struck me as a great way to be able to display your cards!


I used a new line called, Holly Berry Borscht to decorate the hanger. The pre-cut Pea Pod parts made it easy!


The side "ribbons" and hanging strips were created with one other product that I love, Kraft Tape Dots. I took the backing off the tape to create the "ribbons" down the side, but left the backing in place for the hanging strips.


On the center clip, I placed a small card, which makes this a perfect decoration to hang up until the happy mail starts to arrive!


The prize:
Here is the start of today's prize. If you have gotten a prize from me before, you know that I keep adding product to the box until it is absolutely FULL! 

PRIZE DETAILS:
Leave a comment on each blog post today by 10 PM CST Sunday, October 5. Each comment will get you another entry. I will draw a name Sunday night and announce the winner here on Monday. 


see you back here soon! thanks for stopping by!

This card hanger is a great idea!
Sadly, I am helping dear hub with a remodel project that we have to get done, so I can't do any card making. I can only sneak a few peaks at blogs here and there.
Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!
