Going Old School

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!! I have another video for you today…but, I had a couple hiccups in transitioning to the overhead camera.  I didn’t want to throw out the video altogether though–that would just be wasteful! 😉

I made several quick cards using that awesome Far East stack by DCWV, some crinkle ribbon and PBD stamps!  Watch to see how– Plus at the end of this post there’s a giveaway!

So, what’d you think? Easy enough, right?  Here’s some close-ups!



This sweet sentiment above & below  is from one of my favorite sets, Enjoy the Journey.  I think this last one is my favorite of all…because of the colors.  They remind me of the beach.DSC_0052

See how easy you could put together a card set?DSC_0054


Alright….who’s ready for a little giveaway? I will be giving this fun set away!

  • Cute, sinple and quick cards, that’s the way to go when you don’t have a lot of time. Thanks for a great give away!

  • Hi Sarah such pretty cards, I like that you have gone old school. In fact the other day I got out my decorative scissors, I still love to use them, I don’t think you can beat the old favourites!

  • I do have decorative scissors and was thinking of getting rid of them as I haven’t used them in years. May have to rethink that after seeing this. These cards are elegant and so easy peasy to make! Thanks for sharing!

  • Beautiful cards! I literally JUST got rid of my old school decorative scissors! I’ll have to make due with an edge punch. 🙂

  • I still have a bunch of decorative scissors! In fact, a friend and I were using them on a project 2 weeks ago – how fun! I’ve never been great at cutting straight with them and my friend kept cutting with them upside down so instead of a nice curvy edge it was all halloweeny! Thanks for another inspiring video – you are really on it this week!
    Have a great weekend with those super cute kiddos!

  • I like the idea of making simple cards like this for a gift set because it’d be so easy to mass produce especially if it’s such pretty paper that can stand on its own!

    I haven’t used decorative scissors for my own stuff in a LONG time. I actually used it with the elementary age kids at school when I had to do literacy programs with them (read a book and do a craft with them related to it). They LOVED them! Haha, they had never seen them before, and so many of them were like, “I’m going to tell my mom to get these for me!”

    The funny thing is I recently thought about pulling them out to use but not for papercrafting. I saw how people used them on clear tape to adhere to their nails so that they can get a design for a pretty manicure! That’s what I was thinking about trying out!

  • Love the cards. That stack is an oldie but goodie! The sentiments are perfect too.
    It’s funny should mention decorative scissors…they were all I used back in the 90s. Now I keep them in the school room for the kids to use.
    Thanks for the fun giveaway

  • I am very EXCITED with the Look of these cards!
    Love the Simplicity and BEAUTY of them! Thank you for an AWESOME giveaway!!

  • What lovely CAS cards. I love the layout. I have used decorative scissors in the past. I have a huge supply of them in my stash, I should pull them out.

  • Such a cute yet simple card! Thnx for the great idea, I have my scissors on a shelf & pull them out when my daughter needs them!
