Sometimes you want to add something different to your crafting. You just get bored with making cards? We could approach this topic in two ways. One you are bored with making cards and seeing them just grow in your craft room. Stacks and stacks of cards just laying there and collecting dust.   Let’s start with some ideas to reduce that stack. 

Ways to stop growing pile of  cards:

  1. Purchase a book or roll of stamps. Most of the time we don’t mail cards because you don’t have any stamps on Hand. that is easy to correct. 
  2. Sit down and address envelops of every one that comes to your mind. Brainstorm about who you want to send a smile card to this month. 
  3. FB gives you a list of upcoming Birthdays. Birthdays cards are cards makers number one card to create. Use them.
  4. Don’t have their address, Create and start an address book. You will be so glad you did. One day someone is going to get married, have a baby, retire, graduate from high school/college, everyone has a birthday and Christmas come around every year. Now you have their addresses in one place.
  5. “I don’t have time.”  Do you watch TV every night. An easy time to get those cards ready to mail. And you are still in the room with your husband as he hollers at the ballgame. HEHE
  6. Pick a day of  week that you are going to mail a card to someone. Then do it. Like mail a Smile Card every Monday or Thursday send a smile day. Friday, smiles to improve someone’s Monday.
  7. They are great gifts. Share your love and card making abilities as a gift. Simple pull together 4-6 cards, wrap them in a ribbon and you have a $25 to $30 gift. And your reception doesn’t have to spend $6 a card at HallMark to mail you one back.
