Be Blessed and Love and Dreams Cards {ScrapThat! June 2012 Kit}






So I created 2 cards using the June kit from ScrapThat!

This one has already left the building as I actually made
it to attach to someone's wedding gift (I never managed
to attend the wedding as Cami was sick) but they LOVED
the card - more than the gift it seemed - ROFL - just kidding...


Lately I've been making my cards measure   15 1/4 cm's  square because that way I fit 2 cards perfectly into one sheet of
cardstock and fortunately I found envelopes this exact size
too so these are my "go to" dimensions right now...


This one was very simple as you can see but I added
something kinda interesting to the inside.  This banner
actually flaps around - it is only attached at the spine.


So that is it from the ScrapThat! kit for June, although
I actually still have more left overs after these 5 projects
and have in mind to make another layout & a couple of
tags.  Just a matter of when...you know what I mean?!

I am having blogger issues and cannot see the images of the 2nd card. I will be back later. I can see why they love the card more than the gift :) It is beautiful.
I got the deadline wrong for the SCRAP THAT sketch challenge but loved playing all the same. Silly me!
