    This is just a note to say thanks for all the great project ideas you have posted on this website. I’m a beginner to paper crafts like scrapbooking and card making, and I have found it discouraging that most of the projects being posted by the manufacturers each require a huge investment in supplies like dies and a die cutter. I got started with this because I thought it would be a good way to save money on making my own cards. LOL! That was naive of me, wasn’t it?

    I’m glad I found your blog / website, and I appreciate the ideas you’ve shared that actually will save me money. I love how you’ve used inexpensive decorative scissors to make so many of your fancy embellishments. If I do that instead of buying border stickers the way I have been doing, I will save a small fortune. A thousand thanks for all the great ideas.

      Hi Kirsten,

      You really can save money by making your own cards, but it definitely takes some focus to actually realize a savings. If you get distracted by all the lovely supplies available, and buy everything that looks like it could be useful, it is all too easy to spend more than you save. You also have to actually, proactively sit down and make bunches of cards, or you don’t get your money’s worth out of all the supplies. But if you can manage to work through those two issues, then it is definitely possible to make truly stunning cards that are much more cost effective than store-bought greeting cards.

      I definitely do recommend getting a few pairs of decorative scissors. I got mine in around 2006 or 2007. Since then, they have paid for themselves many times over in cost savings over buying die-cuts, stickers and other embellishments. They’re the first thing I reach for when I want to make an impressive looking card or other paper craft project.
