Be Mine, Valentine

Last night I went to a "Pizza Crop" night at a local scrapbooking store with some of my girlfriends. Since I can't even pretend that I'm organized enough to gather stuff for my quasi-scrapbook, I decided I'd make Valentine's instead. I had purchased the book Originals through my friend's business, so I popped the disc in for the first time, printed off some envelope templates and picked a couple cards I wanted to try.

When I was done making the smaller cards, I did their envelopes out of some regular scrapping paper I had. One of the girls at my table commented on how her sister loved to make envelopes since you can do it out of something as simple as a brown paper bag...lightbulb moment! I inevitably forget my cloth bags every once in awhile, so have a stash of some paper bags in our closet...2 bags later, I had enough envelopes for all of my cards; I was easily able to make 16 envelopes out of the two bags from just the top portion...the bottom just didn't make a nice envelope. Stamp the bottom corner, and you've got another way that going green is not only cheap...it saved me money since the envelopes were free. My favorite price.

Hey Sara - those look really cool - are those from Close to My Heart?
