Ok so here's one of the projects I've squeezed in between grandkids. They measure 2x2 and are just a decorative item. I originally saw one at a Christmas store in Door County and I thought....hey I can do that and save the $18. Decided to make various lengths depending on the word I used. The First box is actually 2.75 x 2.75 and a bit hard to notice but each side says Ho Ho. Thought these would be great for the Mailman, grandkids teachers, neighbors etc. They whip up pretty fast to so it's a win win for me! Ok I'm going to go look at some blogs....nightie night

Hi Sue / good to see you stop in ! Sounds like you've got your hands full with those wee babes ❤️

I love your projects you made !! A festive way to brighten the home I made one a few years ago with 5 freestanding blocks and it spells out the word J-E-S-U-S. I set it out every year next to our stockings ❤️

Jeanette, I hope your family doesn't say, "Who is that lady drinking coffee at the kitchen table every morning?" They won't know how to act having you there! LOL!

Kelly, I am amazed by your energy and stamina! Enjoy these busy, family filled days! They pass before you know it!

Great to see you, Susan, and know that you are doing O.K. I love those awesome blocks! What a great little holiday gift for friends and family!

We have been discussing the option of closing down this blog group and starting a new one with the active members. With more than 50% of this group no longer visiting or taking part, we are thinking of starting anew with the remaining core of members. I have been waiting to hear back from you (Susan) and Shelly before we make the move.


I have been kicking around ideas for names and here are a few that have crossed my mind:



Ink + Paper = Inspiration
Inspired by Ink
Just Paper and Ink


I would love to hear ideas from all of you!

Hi Lynn! I love ALL your names! They are a perfectly representation of our coloring friends here No way to pick a favorite out of the line up ♥

Happy Veteran's Day, friends. I'm hoping to get head up to central Florida tomorrow to put flowers on dad's grave. It's been 10 years, but some days it feels like yesterday. I'm so proud of his many years of service to our country

Blessings, all!

I too have noticed quite a few missing people Lynn. I know I haven't updated my Blog since the 1st of October. Plan to change that today. And I know it had been about that long for me to be here too. Life got pretty crazy but all is better now. I definately want to stay with the group. How many of us are there now?Well as promised I checked the recent blog posts of all of you guys last night! What a great bunch of cards!
I am getting ready for tomorrow night where I will be showing the gals I card with how to do Scene Cards that I saw on You Tube. We are using all Graphic 45 papers. There were 3 different styles and this lady made 5 different examples. It has taken me the last week (between life lol) to try and get dimensions figured out. We ladies planned an All Day Saturday and decided to do a pot luck as well. After all we need to eat to create right? I can't wait! We were together last friday too where I showed them ways to use up their scraps for tags. Cracked me up because these are very crafty ladies and our cards always turn out so darn cute but none of them had ever made a tag. I think that's what I'll be posting on my blog today. I'll check in later!

I plan to dress up in my stars and stripes shirt and head down to the Veteran's Day Parade this morning, Kelly! We owe our servicemen and servicewomen so much gratitude! How proud you must be of your dad!

Sounds like a fun day planned with your crafty friends, Susan! Graphic 45 is my absolute favorite paper company!


Those who have checked in and taken an active roll in the group in recent days are yourself, Jeanette, Kelly, Shelly, Kim, and me. I guess that means the new group would be six strong.

Hi Friends



I just posted some cards to my galley here, and I have 2 blog posts in my drafts. I was busy today with projects for our diocesan women's council...I will be inducted as President on Monday! Not sure what I got myself into!


My stamp room is still a MESS, and I have company on SUNDAY! Tomorrow, I need to finish cleaning the main rooms of the house, and I hope I have some energy left to make some sense in this space. Oh boy!


I'll stop in later this weekend!


Inky {{{HUGS}}}

LOL Kim...I feel your pain! My craft room is a huge mess! If we were a tad closer we could share the cleaning experience together I think I'm at that overwhelmed stage. I have just plopped things in there and now....Oh Boy! Hope you get everything taken care of.


Today is my all day "Play Date". I sure hope these cards turn out and I think
I have directions all written out. My luck I will have missed a point or two.


Hope everyone has a productive day in one sense or another. Looks like we are having another beautiful brisk fall day here. Love the sound of the leaves crunching as the deer walk by. Later guys!

Default Hello

Hello to all! I am in Virginia visiting Stephi- flying back Monday, then driving to Kankakee Tuesday for a doc appt.

My computer screen on my laptop got stepped on or something- big black streaks across the screen- I can still use it if I move everything to the Rt a bit, so did not want to bring it with me. I am sneaking onto my hubby's laptop to drop a line.


Mom came with us- she is doing well so far.

I love the new names Lynn- sounds great! Thanks for all you do here. Mmmm I love guac- how do you make a recipe for that many people?


Sue- are the blocks wood? Do you buy them? How is the cording connected. I love the ones you have created! Glad you survived the kids and hope your daughters post surgery goes well! How is your son?


Kelly- enjoy the long weekend.


Kim- good seeing you and hope being President of the council goes well.


Jeanette- hope you get lots of laundry done- my fav loads are towels and sheets- hehehe less folding/ironing


I have to run- heading out to see Stephi


Shelly

Now that all the active members of this group have checked in and agreed that disbanding and reorganizing under a new name is our best option, I will put together a new blog list and start a new thread. The Creative Card Makin' Chicks will be no more.

Our new name will be Just Paper & Ink and we will remain a closed group unless and until we decide to add new members.


I will come back and post a link to that thread as soon as I have it put together.


Thanks to all have been CCMC members off and on using the past year. We wish everyone the very best in your crafting and personal lives and hope to cross paths again in cyber space.

Hi Ladies,Sorry I haven't been around for the last few months.
Both my parents have been in poor health and I find myself chasing my tail between helping them out and doing all the usual mum things for my 4 kids.
I am struggling for time but please bear with me as I am hopping things will get a lot better.
Lou

Good morning, Lou! I am so sorry to hear that your parents are not doing well.


Sometimes life steps in and gives us a spin that we weren't expecting. Our commitments and responsibilities change. That seems to have happened to a great number of the members of the CCMCs and for that reason we decided to disband the group. The Creative Card Makin' Chicks is no longer active.


There was a handful of us who wanted to remain active and continue sharing with each other, so we founded a new group: Just Paper & Ink. Should the time come that you are able to become active again, come and chat with us there.

Hello I'm new to blogging and looking to join a blog group. Is this one still accepting new members? I went to the link - Just Paper and Ink but it said closed.

Thanks!

Hi, Aastha. This blog group disbanded last November and is no longer active.

I would love to visit your newly opened blog. I tried to follow your link to your blog but was taken to a "Not Found" page.

Hello,
Thanks so much for the reply. I changed the name of the site. Realised there were similar sites out there.
My blog (new name) - https://stampwithaastha.wordpress.com/


Thanks again!
