Totally Tools Greeting Cards
Next week, I'm going to be teaching some new scrapbookers how to use some of Creative Memories traditional tools and products.
One easy and stress free ways to teach tools is to teach card making. Often times, new scrapbookers aren't sure what their first project will be or haven't had time to gather photos. Cards are useful creations that don't require a lot of know how and making them with cM tools helps me to introduce tools to newbies.
That said, making cards is a great way to use up older scrapbook paper that you may be growing tired of. When you use it in a card - it gets a whole new life.
This weekend I'm hosting a National Scrapbook Day event. My attendees will be introduced to some of the exclusive NSD products from cM. I used the BEST OF paper pack to create all of the cards shown.
My NSD attendees can earn prize tickets by creating cards with their NSD exclusive products. Even tho. they aren't newbies, they will have a chance to use some tools that they may not have yet tried out! I hope so. My attendees at NSD will be challenged to customize and decorate their cards. I can't wait to see what they will come up with at the event.
There are lots of samples of cards on the cM project center. Both digital and traditional cards samples are shown. I make all of my greeting cards - and why wouldn't I? I have a lot of scrapbook supplies and tools and a homemade card is often nicer and cheaper than a store bought one.
Give cards a chance.
Here are my lesson pages to make 7 cards.
I also have a pdf handout of these instructions if you are a cmc and would like to use them at a class, party or event. To request a handout, contact me at cmsher (at ) gmail (dot ) com. Enjoy! and Happy Scrapping.
