How i started cards making?

Wow, i received quite a few of encouragements and i wanna say THANK YOU! Well, i decided to show you my 1st creation, which i think... i hide it under table :p Well, some i sent to my friends :)

Middle of May, the time when i get my first sc
allop and round punch from Liza, i decided to make card that night. I printed out the names of my friends and punch it out to stick on my card. I totally forgot what paper i used - i just try to search from the paper that i got from my friend, and mix and match. With limited tools, this is my first creation! Ah...it is quite disappointing... so i decided not to make cards after that...

Early June, when i realized i am running our of birthday card for my friends. So i took out my tools and started to make cards for my friends. I told myself - i am going to make few cards. Well,... this is the outcome.


I realized i have to post out 10 cards in June for my friends' birthday and i don't have enough at this moment, so i made another men's card.


After that i keep all my tools.

One day, a friend called from Malaysia and said - he likes the card i made. He encouraged me to make more to bless others. This is the time... the "spark" of card making started :)

The journey begins....

Even your first ones are wonderful. I am too ashamed to show you mine... if I still have them :) I started stamping a long while ago but didn't get into it until this year. I was just very off and on then. I'm so glad you decided that you love doing it and starting this blog to share. Do you already have an account at splitcoaststampers.com? You should!
