Cards | Made with LOVE for Friends

Hi All… Card Annex Designer Deena Ziegler here to bring you some card inspiration today.

This week I got a couple uninterrupted hours to get creative in my craft room. I set out to create one “friendship” card for my post today, but, that turned in to a run away session of cutting, gluing and making a huge mess. I was in love with the super cute – just my style – papers from Bella Blvd that were sent to me last week. I love when all the creative planets align and designing projects I love becomes so easy!

While the Bella Blvd “Love and Marriage” line was meant to be for weddings, I think it’s also well suited for all girly occasions.

For this little 4×4 card, I layered up several layers of patterned paper and topped it off with a Thinlit die from Sizzix, called “For the Record 2 – Documented” from the new Echo Park collection. The sticker letters are so tiny and adorable, I love well designed products like these.

Cards | Thinking of You

We finish off today with team designer Yana Smakula. She brings us this hello that is full of sunshine (something we haven’t seen all week here in the so-called “sunshine state”) with help from some fabulous Pebbles products!

I fell in love with the Pebbles Basics Pads the moment I saw them, and patterns like this yellow chevron are the reason why! They are so quick and easy – just grab a sheet and fold it to make a card! Continue Reading →

Cards | Hello

Hi! It’s card team designer Terri Davenport. I’m here to share a fun way to say “hello” – and a quick & easy stamping technique!

I used an unusual stamp to make my circles: the bottom of a glue stick. It’s easy to do – just dip the bottom of the glue stick into paint and stamp it onto the cork! After that, just paint the letters and adhere everything to the card! It’s as easy as 1-2-3 and you are done!

Cards | Happy Mother’s Day

Today, we’re making a big announcement for National Scrapbook Day!

Please welcome to Scrapbook Update the Card Annex design team! The Card Annex team was founded late last year as part of another Nally Studios property, and is now taking up permanent residence at Scrapbook Update to strengthen our creative offerings here.

Our ten card designers will be bringing you content several times per week to highlight products and teach techniques. Today, you’ll be getting their first three posts for Scrapbook Update, but if you would like to see more, you can visit the Card Annex archives on our site.

First up today, Scrapbook Update’s Card Annex team designer Corri Garza is bringing us a card featuring the products of designer Lori Whitlock, but from two different companies!

The beautiful pink papers on this card are from the Valentine’s Day collection called “Love Story” that Lori designed for Echo Park Paper Company. Who said that you have to put away your seasonal products when the season is over? Lori’s beautiful feminine pink designs in “Love Story” are perfect for Mother’s Day, and would also do well for other occasions like birthdays and baby girls.
