WOYWW #276

If you want to play along... just click that link 
 find out what you need to know...than join the fun.

All cleaned up after I finished putting these fabulous papers away.

A C Moore advertised open stock paper 10 sheets for $1.00 and because the sign was in the wrong place...that's what I paid. I almost feel bad....hahaha.   These American Craft papers are beautiful, many double sided and great quality, ranging from $ .59 - $1.99. Lucky mistake for me. Now what will I do with them...stay tuned.

I used one sheet to make this card for an avid golfer that's celebrating his 70th birthday. Guess what his name is? On the back I added photo corners so the back panel can be removed to write a message, and a  perfect place to put my stamp.

The bird house box card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest...there are so many possibilities for this simple card, I just can't stop making them. 

More good news the consignment shop that displays my cards sold 12 more cards this month and paid me $59.00. Happy money and a reason to make more cards. 

Well I'll be snooping around to see what you're doing in the crafty world of deskers.  If you leave a comment I'll return the visit.

Be well ~ Carole


  1. Love your box card for the golfer. Lovely papers (can never have too many) Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a great day and a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #47 x

  2. That box card for the golfer is great! You sell your cards? Lucky you. You can play and earn at the same time. I bet the golfer card is popular.
    Thank you for letting me look over you shoulder.

  3. Love the box cards! They are so popular! My dad would love the golfer one. And what a deal on the paper! Thanks for popping by. So far no flooding but expect it soon with all the rain we've had so far. Happy WOYWW!

  12. Hi Carole, happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting my desk. Do love you workspace and your box cards are fabulous (I browsed and saw lots), love how they pack flat and you can vary the size to suit. I did read your comment about my slotted file and didn't realize yours was made of cardboard and then followed your link and got to see around your craft room, it's fun and I think what Julia has started is wonderful - crafters sharing with others their space, it's like company for me as I know none of the bloggers. Enough, have a super week, great paper grab love a bargain. Cheers RobynO#27

  13. Hi Carole, I've been making these pop-up box cards with some friends this week and as i have been going round the desks it would seem that lots of other people have been making them too Lol! Great minds I think!
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 35

  14. You sure got a bargain with the papers. Yours is the second blog I've seen with box cards and I'm hooked on them. I could never make one myself (all thumbs) but I love looking at them. Congrats on your sales that's fabulous.
    Have a great week,
