Saving Card Memories with Marcia

Hello Quick Quotes friends, Marcia here to host the blog today.  What do you do with your Christmas cards now that Christmas is over? I like to save them so I can remember who sent me cards last year.

Here is a way you can store those cards ... inside a paper bag mini album. I like to pick out a few photo cards to decorate my album, then the rest go inside the bag. Let me show you ...

I decorated my cover with some Quick Quotes chipboard. The present was painted with gesso and then inked. The tree was finished with Inca Gold rub.

Lets look inside ...

What's great about paper bag minis is that you can add as many pages inside as you want. The rest of my cards can be stored inside the bag.

To keep the cards from falling out, tie a ribbon around your mini.

Quick Quotes supplies:
Cracklin' Rose 100, 300, 400, 500
Copper Kettle 200
Birthday Gift chipboard
Small chipboard tree - Club Q
Powderpuff chalk ink in Midnight Confessions, Java, Biscotti, Bloody Mary, and Maraschino Cherry

Other Supplies:
Silhouette Cameo - poinsettias
Spellbinders scallop border die
Ribbon, brads, Inca Gold rub, paper bag

Have a great 2014 everyone!
Pin It Now!

Great project!
I save my cards every year also. This puts my Ziploc bag to shame.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Happy New Year!

Marcia - this is an awesome idea! I agree with Karen, it surely puts my Ziploc to shame as well!!!
