In my last post I shared with you a Card Kit Organizer I created using the Simple Stories Good Stuff collection. Did you notice the coordinating cards in that post? Those were actually created with the coordinating Shine On Card Kit! Guess what? I design the card kits for Simple Stories … so, if you order one … it’s like ordering a card class from ME through the mail! Fun, right!
The card kit comes with full-color instructions, white pre-scored card bases, four sheets of pop-out die-cuts, and a 6×12 chipboard sheet to create EIGHT handmade, layered cards. You can ORDER THIS KIT HERE! And they are a BLAST to put together, if I do say so myself.

I make lots of handmade cards, but you know what?! I am TERRIBLE at using them! For YEARS, I have wanted to come up with a system to get those cards out of the boxes I store them in and actually WRITE in them and then SEND them out to people … can you relate?
I decided to create a Card Organizer that will help me do just that. This binder isn’t necessarily a place to store all of the cards I make, but it *IS* a system for selecting those cards and putting them in a ‘queue’ (so to speak) ready to write in each month. Let me explain it a bit more.
The idea is to write birthdays, anniversaries, etc. on the list, and then place cards for those occasions inside the pocket … ready to be written on. I can then keep this binder on my desk, by my bedside, wherever! to write and SEND the cards from my stash each month. It will serve as a ‘transition spot’ for the cards in between my storage box and the recipient. Great idea, right?!
Here is a closer look at each pocket in the album.
Did you like this project? Do you think that you will make one for yourself?
Let’s put this project to use and become card-giving ROCKSTARS this year!
The pocket folder card is perfect for tucking in a note along with a few packs of flower seeds. It would be perfect to use in the wintertime with hot cocoa packet as well …. Heck! How about using it for Apple Cider packets in the Fall?! Lots of possibilities with this one!
The flower pot is holding a cellophane bag of sour gummy worms. I created a ‘topper’ for the gummy worms using a striped paper drinking straw as the stick.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to spread a little ‘Spring’ to someone you know!
Some of the FUN things I get to do for my job is to make ‘How To’ videos, Livestreams, and design products. Today, I thought I would share a few of those things with you here!
If you missed my Happy Hearts Treat Box tutorial for Simple Stories, you can check it out on the Simple Stories Facebook Page or YouTube channel. These EASY treat boxes take one sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper. You can create several ahead of time and store them flat. They are so fun to make and are perfect for Valentine’s Day gift-giving, party favors, and MORE!
Scroll down a bit for the video that includes all of the scoring diagrams to create a few of these for your friends and family!
As I mentioned above, I also design a few products for Simple Stories. Namely, the Card Kits and Page Kits that coordinate with each collection.
These are all-inclusive kits that are so EASY and FUN to put together! I do my best to make sure that the sentiments are ones that you can use ALL YEAR round. For example, on the ‘Feb 14’ card below, I have also included the sentiment ‘so cute’ in the kit, so that you can use in place of the ‘Feb 14’ if you want to use it for another time of year.
Pictured below is the Happy Hearts Card Kit that coordinates with the Happy Hearts collection. If you have tried one of these kits, I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!
You can make these cards, too, by picking up the CARD KIT HERE. Enjoy!
