I really like to do crafts, specifically scrapbooking and card making, but considering I'm always exhausted while being pregnant and having three kids running around, I have little time to really be creative. So when I do get in the mood for such things, my go-to project is and always will be a One Sheet Wonder.
This is literally the easiest thing to tackle if you feel like you aren't creative enough to make your own cards. You can crank out 8-12 cards in less than a half hour. If you know me at all you know that I absolutely hate buying store bought cards. A little piece of me dies every time I do. I have a hard time justifying $3 or more on something that most people throw out. With $3, I can make a set of these and bam- I have a quick gift, I have enough birthday cards to last me a few months, whatever. If you are trying to cut money out of your budget, considering getting into this because truly, it's inexpensive.
I should also note, this is a GREAT project for kids to make thank you cards for birthday and holiday gifts. I'm a big believer in teaching kids the value of sending an actual thank you versus just saying it, and this is something my kids like doing. Give them a pack of cards, help them pick out paper and assist with cutting and leave the rest to them. You'd be surprised at what they come up with!
To get started, go on Pinterest and look for some free templates. HERE is a great page of endless templates. It doesn't really matter which one you pick out, but if you're a beginner I would suggest picking one with the least amount of cutting.
And of course, if you are in need for some fun stamp colors (that last a LONG time), or inexpensive and cute stamps, embellishments, or paper packs- head over HERE and shop! Check out the Clearance Rack (link on the top left column)- there are some SUPER good deals on stamps, paper, punch sets, etc. You can order from this demonstrator online, have it shipped to your house, and sign up for the email alerts to get the good deals!
