Another passion of mine is making cards. I have collected old sewing junk forever and now recycle it on my cards.  I use snips of old lace, buttons, keys, old advertising is my favorite. I usually scan the old ads, sometimes I cut them up and use the originals, but I don't like to do that. You can use old seed packets too, or scan them. I also sew on them, I have soooo much old thread. You can use so many different things on cards, just be creative. Have fun with junk!

You can add so many different elements to cards now, not just paper anymore. I make some woodsy cards with birch bark, I might have to post one of those too. Posted: 9:12 am on January 18th
