Smile Saving Your Creations

I began to make full-size cards only for my sample packs about three years ago. This helps in many ways!

I do save my creations for a while ~ at least while they are current. Sometimes I will make two or three of the same card - usually when I have leftover cardstock from a stamp camp of something.

I go one step further with my retired cardfronts. When I get around to selling retired sets, I usually put cardfront samples with them. I also put out retired cardfronts in a basket for my customers. They go crazy and think it is gold!

Having a website helps, but I do delete retired sets as space is always at a premium.

I do like having a bunch of Christmas cards all set to go after the retirement list comes out...this year I am sure I will have plenty.

I also give my mom and my sister (a second-grade teacher) some of my stash. They really appreciate having pretty cards to send out.

Plus, I do an outreach program at our church - I use some of my nonspectacular cards for that.
