Artsymama is hosting an Artful Blogging Party today in celebration of the release of the new Somerset publication Artful Blogging. Go over to her site and check out all the blogs that are posting something artful today. It is already amazingly inspiring and the day/links have just started!!!
For my post today, I wanted to post a quickie PSA for scrapbookers. I was sitting in my scraproom the other day and spotted my box of coin envelopes. If you have never seen these before, they are 3 1/2" x 6" envelopes that were really popular a few years ago for mailing tags. You can get them in any office supply store. But I was sitting there looking at those envelopes and had an epiphany. Those envelopes are the absolutely perfect size for scrapbookers!!!
So I am here today to share with you the Perfect Scrapbookers Card...
These cards are made literally from scraps and because of the size of the finished product, they are perfect for scrapbookers. The finished size of all these cards is 3"x6" and they are all made from either 3"x12" strips or 6"x6" squares. Now, all you scrapbookers out there know how often you have just these sized pieces left over from your layouts so now you have the perfect use for them.
Here are the close-ups of all the cards. They are super-simple and fun to make. It is just like working with an oversized ATC.
This card is a side-fold made from a 3"x12" strip:

These are the last of my projects featuring the featured products of Basic Grey- Phoebe and Rhonna Farrer's Nature stamps. I will be starting a new featured product grouping sometime later this week. Tomorrow, though, I have a project that I have been working on that is very special. I just have to go get some printer ink so that I can finish up what I have done on it so far.
I hope that you have fun hopping around the Artful Blogger Party blogs today!!
