January Card Club

We had January Card Club last weekend. It was SUCH a fun time and all the ladies were really excited to be stamping again after the holidays. All stamps, papers and ink are from Stampin' Up!

I tried to make all the cards with two options....so that the gals could make them into Valentine cards or just regular greeting cards with different sentiment options.

Remember that one card I made for our anniversary a while back? I adhered to pieces of white cardstock to the inside of the card. One side was for my message to my husband, the other was for my husband to write a message to me. I love this type of card. My husband gets a break from card shopping and we both end up with a nice momento and hand written notes to each other. This version below is for our Valentine card to each other.
Love the paper on the card below, it's one of my new SU! favorites. And this is one of my favorite new card layouts. It went directly into my idea sketch book. That swirly flower background is just darling!!
The cards below are versions of the original cards....I love to use the leftover supplies for myself! My girls always love to make a card or two also.

And LOVE this bird from the Always set. This stack of cards below got all kinds of sentiments. They will make good February cards due to the Valentine-y colors.

Hope you enjoy!!

Great cards and layouts! I love, love, love all the white you've been using. I sometimes forget how a simple stamped image on white is such a nice contrast.

Stop it will you?!?!? Always was on my wish list but I was restrained and didn't grab it on my last order. Now it will be going on that order. Thanks for the simple card layouts for those of us with Card Club's!
