How To Make A Quick Celebration Card "Just Cards" Video Hop


Welcome to the June "Just Cards" Hop--the theme is Wedding/Anniversary cards.  Please visit all the stops on the hop as everyone has worked hard to make it inspiring for you!  Just find the list below and hop along!  My product order took 3 weeks to get here, so I improvised with things that could be used for either.

This card features Altenew's Leaf Burst Stencil with Tonic's mirror card stock.  It is perfect for any occasion and easy to make!  The supplies are listed below with picture links.  (These are affiliate links meaning I receive a small commission on products purchased through the links at no cost to you.  As Jennifer McGuire stated perfectly "It's like tipping your waitress for good service." I really appreciate it!)

Here is the list of the hop stops:

I hope you enjoy this and will consider subscribing here to the blog and on my YouTube Channel  I plan to start posting sales and things on the The Darby Creek Diaries Facebook page, so you might want to check in on that too!  If you hit like I believe you will be sent the post.  Trust me, I don't post there a lot, so don't worry about that!

Have a fabulous week!!!

How To Make A Fun Summer Card!! (Viewer's Choice!)

Hi everyone!

(6/14/18 update:  The winner is the Vellum Butterfly!  I will get working on it very soon!)

I've been here at the 'Creek since 2011 writing about crafts, travels, pets, humor (lot's of humor!), etc.  Most of the posts lately have been papercrafting due to time constraints.  (Unfortunately, I can't have it all as there just aren't enough hours in a day--well maybe if I didn't have to work...)

Anyway, here are a dozen cards that I made P.YT. (Pre YouTube)  Please vote either in the comments here or at my channel on the one you would like to see me recreate!  The voting will end on 6/14 and I will announce "the winner"probably on my "Just Cards Video Hop" video on 6/15.
