Stampin' Up! Quick and Easy Lovely You Gratitude Card

Today, I created a soft and elegant card with the Stampin' Up! Lovely You Stamp Set. Who says beautiful cards have to take long to make? Believe it or not, his was very quick and easy to make -- easy enough to make several at one time. Batching is a great thing -- you always have a ready-made card on hand.

Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!


I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.
