Graphic 45 Children’s Hour Stack of Cards for 2019

Graphic 45 Children’s Hour Stack of Cards for 2019

Hello, Friends!  Happy New Year!  I have a feeling that 2019 is going to be a fabulous year.  Over the holiday break, I decided to create a Graphic 45 Children’s Hour Stack of Cards.  Now I’m ready for whatever occasion presents itself in 2019.

Here are a few tips and simple supplies that you will need in case you decide to dip into your stash and create your own Children’s Hour Stack of Cards.

Children’s Hour Stack of Cards TIPS
  • Follow a basic recipe for each card to speed up production.
  • Create your stack of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card bases before you begin making the cards.
  • Tie a dozen simple bows from ivory seam binding ribbon before you begin.  It goes with everything!
  • Doilies provide quick and easy layers!  Use packaged doilies or die cut them yourself from scraps of white paper.And remember, you can cut a doily in half when tucking it behind an image to make it go double the distance!
  • Cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ base layers from the Patterns and Solids or Calendar Pad
Children’s Hour Stack of Cards: SUPPLIES
  • Graphic 45 Children’s Hour Collection

The interior of each card follows the same format.  I left a blank area for writing a greeting so the card can be used for birthdays or get well, or any occasion.

These would be cute set out as a home decor for each month of the year, too.

So, if you’ve got a calendar collection sitting around gathering dust, why not pull it out and create a stack of cards to see you through the year?  It’s a great stash busting project and one that will pay dividends all year long.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and inspiration that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy

    Kathy, these are beautiful! I’ve seen the 12×12 paper pad before at Tuesday Morning, but never really gave it a thought, now after seeing these, wish I had picked it up in the past!

    This is such a wonderful idea, Kathy. I’m already looking through my stash to see what I might have to create something like this. The little touches for each month are delightful to study for future use. I’m already thinking how the card set could be used as monthly “memory” cards to record special moments throughout the year. Thanks for sharing this incredible collection.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR Kathy!! Lovely cards and you really are prepared for everything. Very cold here, slippery out there. I am going down to the park with the pup for our last little walk of the year down there. Feed the ducks and then home to warmth and chores. Don’t want to go into the New Year with housework to do. LOL Hugs to you and Dale and best wishes for 2019!!

    What a clever idea to make a year’s worth of cards in one session. I love the mass produced idea but they don’t look mass produced since each one is unique.

    Good Morning Kathy!

    What a great way to wake up this morning. I am staying home tonight to do some card making and drink some wine. Your stack of cards for 2019 is a great idea. Thank you for the tips and tricks. I don’t have Children’s Hour papers but I do have absolutely loads of other Graphic 45 papers (which are my favorite) that I can adapt to your ideas. I sure hope my wine drinking doesn’t make my cards go wonky. Happy New Year!!!

    Kathy, what a brilliant idea! These cards are adorable and wouldn’t they make a fantastic New Year’s gift for someone? One of my greatest finds ever was this very paper collection that I snagged at Tuesday Morning at quite a discount. Now I know what to do with it! Love all of your tips on making these cards. I especially like the one for March but they are all absolutely divine! Thank you for sharing! Hugs
