Card Center Kit






I saw this on another blog and just had to make it! It took me a few hours to put it together as I had to figure it out from pictures. That is the fun part, I much rather figure something out (a challenge) then follow directions. Just ask my SU demo LOL! She laughs about it all the time, especially when I make a mistake she says, "well if you read the directions..." That's no fun :) Now if you really like this and want to make it yourself let me know and I will give you the link to purchase the directions. Since she is selling them I don't want to give it away and since I made some changes for my liking you may like hers better. Anyway I am not posting the link due to the fact she is selling it and others are making a different one but same idea and giving the directions away free. Did that make sense? I try to be fair :)

I used my current favorite color (of the week LOL) soft sky/bashful blue shades and pulled out some matching designer paper by SU. I wanted it soft and pretty and flowery but not overdone. The things I changed are: I changed the punch for the handles and I used a jewel type brad, added a pen holder, a holder to clip birthdays or some list on and on the other side I made closed end boxes so the stamps wouldn't slip out. I also didn't want a place for tags or 3 x 3 cards as I never use either so why put it there. The other ladies who have made these type boxes have put tags and small cards and such in theirs. I intend to use this. I will put a list of all the birthdays of the month I need to send cards, envelopes, stamps and as I make the cards I will put them in here and pull the kit out and use them as needed. I love it :) I will be organized for 2009!
