Launch of our Card a Day Blog

We are so excited to launch this blog today. I can't tell you how many hours of work we have put into organizing this blog. We have a wonderful team of designers who will be sharing their beautiful creations with you, but who are also working very hard behind the scenes to inspire each other, collect and organize prizes for our challenges and so much more.

So many great ideas will be shared with you here. We hope that you decide to check our blog out often and join us as a follower.

This month, we will be sharing cards you can use for celebrations, fall, Thanksgiving, cats and bats and Halloween. On October 1 (World Card Making Day), we will launch our Christmas Card Blog Hop that will continue until mid-December. This should help you get the creative juices flowing for your own Christmas cards.

After the Christmas Card Blog Hop, we plan to continue inspiring you all year. With any luck, we will have lots 'n lots of followers, sponsors and designers so we can continue for a very long time.

We do want to offer our followers a chance to participate as well, so we challenge you to follow the weekly theme from Sunday till Monday and at the end of the month there will be random drawn prize winner (the challenges are only open to residents of the U.S. and Canada) for that month's prize which is always a surprise! Full details are provided on the Challenge page.

Now, enough of all this ... let's get to what we're here for!!!

The theme this week is Celebrations. What better way to honor celebrations than with the celebration of a new life. Today's designer, Tina Campbell has made a baby shower card with a technique of welding a card base with a Gypsy:

Complete details on how to make this card can be found on Tina's blog at Tina's Scrap Corner

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come back tomorrow and see another one of our fine designers at work.

Be sure to join in the fun and participate in our challenges. You can start submitting your cards for the September challenge at 10:00 a.m. on September 1, 2011 either below or on the Challenges page.


  1. Very nice card Tina!! Love the paper and where did you get that rattle??

  2. Love your card, Tina! I really enjoy seeing cards in shapes other than A2 (which, by the way, is what I use most...LOL). The rattle is so cute---wonder if I have that cart.....

  3. Suped excited for.this blog. Curious. You mention weekly challenges. But state we can only send in 1 challlenge entry a month. Is that correct?

  4. Hi Dawn, we have weekly themes, but monthly challenges. You can post a project that falls under a theme for another week and that is why we listed all the the themes for the month.

  5. I love your card! Perfect timing! Our neighbors just had a baby girl! I will use my Gypsy for this card!!! Thank you.

  6. Such a cute card Tina! It inspires me to et some baby cards done for some upcoming showers!

  7. Thanks so much all it was a fun card to do and very easy.

  8. aww cute, love the soft pastel colours

  9. Am loving looking through this blog as source of extra inspiration - isn't it so lovely how rarely we come up with identical designs to anyone else as crafters and card makers? Wish I loved over the great pond so I too could participate with you guys, although you can all feel free to link to my own pages and watch for new designs coming there also? I'd be happy to share ideas etc and correspond with similar minded people too... All the very best x
