Quick and Easy Card Set

1 Comment

I love making cards. I especially love creating a set of quick and easy cards that can be used for a variety of purposes. When I got this month’s kits and started looking at all of the beautiful products, I was immediately drawn to the tags and knew I wanted to create a card set using them.

When I make a set of cards I usually like to come up with a design theme and choose several products to work with throughout the set. For these cards I knew I wanted to use the tags. I also pulled out the epoxy stickers and chipboard from the main kit. I also loved the washi from the Traveler’s Notebook kit.

The tags with the pop out letters were a lot of fun to use. I layered them onto another tag to give a contrasting look.

Each of the cards included chipboard, epoxy stickers and the rubber sentiment strips. I also added washi to the bottom of the tags. While the cards are each unique, they have a common look to them.

I was able to create this set in less than 30 minutes. Now I have a fun group of cards that I can pull out at moment’s notice, or give away as a gift.

The tags in the main kit could certainly be used on their own, but served as the perfect background for these cards!

Greeting Card Trio


Hi everyone! I’m here to share with you a trio of greeting cards created with the June kits.

The first card was inspired by the beach themed die-cuts included in this month’s Planner kit. When I saw them, I decided to create a shaker card:

I mixed die-cuts, puffy stickers and sequins and just put them into one of the cello bags from the kit (packaging for the stickers and more). I machine stitched around the bag and paper (hidden by the card stock ring) but you can also glue it all round. I also added a circle of patterned paper on the inside:

Every month I find myself making cards with the 3×4 cards from the Life Pages kit and this month was no exception…

For this one, I grabbed the ice-cream card and found a matching die-cut in the Planner kit. I love the look of the “Happy” sticker elevated with some foam:

My third and last card for today is also based on a card from the Life Pages kit and might be the simplest one to make:

I layered my pineapple card with a piece of patterned paper and a cut-up 4×6 PL card. I also added a couple of puffy stickers to give more depth and a die-cut banner to add interest to the top corner.


Here’s one last look at all three cards:

When you play with your kit(s), remember that cards are a fun option too! Happy crafting!

Layout and card with June Main Kit


Hello dear friends, welcome to the GB blog today. It’s me, Sandra , and I want to share two projects – a large photo layout and a card – that I made with the June Main Kit. The kit comes with awesome embellishments including rubber shapes, chipboard stickers and die cuts. For the first photo I used a large photo and different embellishments.

I used the acrylic stamp from the kit for the journaling. I think the stamp is really cool. You can add ‘details’, date and place and check boxes for the weather.

The second project I want to share is a love-themed card.

 I used white cardstock and patterned paper for the base and added the ‘love’ tag and some other embellishments. Underneath the love tag, I used white cardstock and a washi strip to make the tag look more interesting.

 I’m hoping you like my inspiration. Have fun creating with your June kits!
