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.

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.
Thanks for visiting.

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.
