Welcome to Cards by Amy K.

I am SO GLAD you stopped by to check out my blog!!! Here I will be posting my current projects for you to see. PLEASE feel free to leave me a comment. I would LOVE to hear what you think about what I'm working on. I have been a scrapbooker/paper crafter since I first caught wind of this wonderful hobby in 2006. I am lucky enough to get to spend my days doing something I love so much and which brings so much joy into my life. I first started scrapbooking as a way to pass the time as I found myself at home alone all day suddenly, now I can't imagine life without it. Too bad I don't get paid for it, then I really would have it all!!!

vintage Hello card and mini album to England

This card was made for a lovely lady in England named Layne and her hubby.  They are a couple that Brian met online.  They play an online game with him.  I've spoken to her a couple of times and she's just the nicest person you could meet.  When she and I were talking and she asked about my interest, I told her scrapbooking, of course, and she said that she didn't know what that was.  She said they had card making where she was from but she had no idea what all went into the books. So I made her this mini album to show her.
It's just a basic board book that I used the Whimsy line by Making Memories on.  I also used a few Prima that i had layered to make them look like that and then glimmer misted them.  the paisley die cut is a cricut cut.  I used Bazzill card stock. I also included a little accordion fold album with some embellishments for her to give scrap booking a try.
