Everyday Paper is Moving!

New theme, new link, new post! Everyday paper has moved to www.everyday-paper.com. It only took most of the night to migrate everything over. I hope you like the new look, which will allow me to expand and add more features in the future. If you’re following me here, please be sure to follow me there as well. I won’t be updating here after today, but I will leave it up since I have some pins linked here.

My New Favorite Card

I saw a card online today that was similar to the one I created. Unfortunately I can’t find the link now. It used a white card base and the image was printed or stamped. I decided to go with a black card base and used some champagne glass confetti to build the pyramid. The sentiment is embossed in gold. I think the vellum envelope just adds an extra special touch. It’s definitely my new favorite.

Third Time’s a Charm

I made another card to go into my set of ten and I kind of want to keep it for myself. It’s so cute. I used my growing collection of washi tapes, the cord from a shipping tag, and my Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

Speaking of washi tape, I repurposed a Saran wrap box to store my collection. It’s perfect because it already has a cutting edge and it’s just about the right size for the washi tapes. I cut a paper towel roll and toilet paper down the middle, stapled them together and rolled them back up into a tube to slide the washis onto. I covered the whole saran wrap box in kraft paper and the result is awesome! It’s totally functional too and much better than the little boxes some of them came in originally.

Just Because

Today is day 166. In just 18 days I’ll be half way though this project. Can you believe it? Today I’m showing you a card I actually made last week and sent to a very dear friend of mine. When I talk to people about this project they often ask me what I do with the things I make. Most of the time I just store them away somewhere. I’ve decided to give more of them away. It’s a lot more fun that way.

In other news, I got another commission! This one is for a set of 10 cards. I’m super excited about this one. It will be my first set. I’m planning to include 3 birthday cards, 2 just because, 2 thank you, 1 baby, 1 wedding, 1 congratulations. I’ll be sure to post the complete set here when I’m done.
