The Beginning...

This is my first post for this blog.  I just recently started card-making and I'm loving it more and more. Let me tell you, I fell in love with this new hobby and I fell hard.   I've been wanting to try paper crafts for quite some time so I finally gave in to the urge.   Here are a few of my first cards...

This one is the very first card I made,  at this point I only had paper, scissors and glue, it was for my son's birthday.  My son is an artist and though this card is pretty elementary he loved it and was really glad I decided to get into card-making.  

These were for co-workers birthdays & they loved them.
 
Inside
So, finally here I got some punches & found the beautiful paper.  Improvement already, huh?

The insides I just printed on the computer on card stock.


This is one my son asked me to make for a co-worker of his that was leaving and moving to the east coast. She loved it, he asked that I leave the inside blank so everyone could sign it.


So this is just the beginning for me.  I just ordered a "Spellbinder" machine and some of the dies, I can't wait for it to get here.  I'm gathering more supplies & I'm trying to learn a different technique each time I make a card.  So, wish me luck, more later....

Happy Scrappin'!

If these are your "first attempts" at cardmaking, I certain you won't be a "novice" for long! Like Chana said, you're off to a really good start!

Omega, your cards are lovely. I really liked all of the, but I especially liked how you used the two little gems in the for corners on one of your cards. I'd never thought of that. Thanks for a great idea. I enjoyed viewing your cards and look forward to seeing more and more from you. Did anyone tell you or have you figured out yet that this is a totally addictive hobby? Just a warning. LOL You will also find that craftng people are about the best. So I welcome you to our world. Have a nice day, see you soon.
