More More Slam Dunk

More slam dunk cards. Just trying hard to use up the tub of die cuts and the many shelves and stacks of papers.  When I was designing cards on a design team, I took my time, and tried to create a nice design.  Now my goal is just to get those stacks and tubs whittled down.  The cards are fun to make and I share them with friends. 
I had a lot of froggy die cuts.  
 A bevy of cards.  Can you see the little hand drawn froggy card?.... There for a while I employed my past artist skills at drawing some of my cards.  It was fun.
 I have a lovely die cut for several sizes of a cross.  These cards came out pretty, I think.
 Sizzix candle dies make a quick little birthday card.
 A few die cuts, a few punches create quick cards.
 I love the design papers on these two cards.
 Jumbled stuff.
 A few of this, a few of that.  Love stuff.
 These cards were quickly made using punched out die cuts.  Cute... I think.
 More stuff grabbed up out of stacks and tubs.
That's all, folks.  Thanks for taking a peek.

For years I donated covered notebooks for cancer patients and the children of cancer patients. These books are wonderful pathways to jotting down many things, ...memories, hopes, dreams, fears, etc.  Recently I did a few more for this  purpose.  I always have stashes of the yellow, white and various colored note pads of different sizes.  The larger ones are adult sized and the smaller pads are for the children.  I had fun making these and I know they will be used.

So simple to make.  The larger pads are created with the 12x12 papers while the smaller pads are used with 8-1/2x11 papers.  The 12x12 pads are comprised of two sections.  I place the notepad on the paper, then I do the two score lines for the folding spine, fold down the top and then cut a section to paste on the smaller section. That becomes the back part.  I decorate the front, and then glue the pad on the inside.  The smaller pads are easy.  Those "strips" are cut 5x8-1/2.  Once again I place the note pad on the lower flap, and that gives me the "spot" that I score the two spines and then I fold down the top, decorate and voila', ...a cute little note pad ready for someone to jot down their thoughts. 

Fun.  I had fun.  But I always do. Thanks for peeking at my covered note pads that will be used with such need.

Here I go again.... more slam dunks.  Actually I have given any viewer a gift because I did not begin to take photos of all the cards I made.  I have lots of friends who come over and shop in my Free Shop, and they enjoy selecting cards they like.  I like the sounds of glee when they find cards they want. 

 Out of this group of Slam Dunks, I think I like these pink ones  best of all.
 Who doesn't love a bunny?....

 Believe it not, I found a page of stickers.  A scrapbooker might recall that when scrapbooking started, we only had stickers.  Yup, I used 'em, and I still have some sheets.  They make really quick slam dunk cards.  But I will say I added a wee drop of my glue just to make sure the stickers remained where I placed them.
 More scrapbooking things added to cards.  Those are the really fun cardboard die cuts.
 Sweet grinning  bear.
Everything I photographed has now been added.  I do have a tray of abut 100 mote cards but....
Thanks for visiting.

Slam Dunk Series #2

A little array of slam dunks.  I sort of aimed to make multiple cards with the same theme.  I found that when I am making a lot of cards it is logical to stamp up or print a LOT of sentiments, cut them down and put them in a size #10 envelope.  The envelope is put into a basket, flap up and the sentiment tagged on the tip of the envelope.  When I am making Happy Birthday cards, this full sentiment envelope is really a lot of help in the Slam Dunk Community.  
Below you will see a bevy of Happy Birthday cards. 

Just A Note cards.... so useful, easy to make.

A few of the many Thank You cards.

I love making HELLO cards.  So many uses for these.

That's it for now.  More to come.  Thanks for taking a peek. Have a nice week.  Oh my, I made a Rhyme in No Tine.
