    Well I was making Window Box cards this weekend, had to some icky prep work for a medical test, so make cards in between to keep me calm and take my mind off it. Love the kits, unlike any others, you can pick up the box, get your scissors and glue and go make cards, everything is included. Thanks for making such wonderful kits!

  32. Angie Kindig says:

    Stunning!!! Just love how everything goes together. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  33. Leslie Ramsey says:

    Lovely inspiration once again. You are so sweet to share them Anna. I don’t do social media so I don’t get to see your facebook posts. (Just not my cup of tea.) So it makes me happy to see what beautiful things my fellow crafters make.

    The scrapbook page is lovely. I can use the strip idea in many pages. What a great way to utilize our scraps. Not to mention they can be embossed with your 12×12 embossing folders and cut apart.

    Just can’t wait to finish unpacking my craft stash so I can craft ALL day. Retirement is GREAT!!!

  34. Nancy L Itson says:
