I've put a lot of work into making cards and was too embarrassed to give them away.

Did you try telling yourself how happy the recipient would be when seeing the beautiful card ?

I have done a few that were hard to part with. I just make sure to send them to people I know will love them.

No I haven't, BUT....I have done LO's on photos more than once. Once for my brother. Once for my mother. Once to KEEP!

My fear of uploading the third one is that everyone here is TIRED OF THE SAME PHOTOS!

I don't make cards, but I have worked really hard on some layouts and then not wanted to put them away in an album. I wanted to hang them up. They use to sell the frames here, but not anymore. Any idea where I can find them?

I think M's. I have a friend that hangs hers. I keep my last one or two on a easel for a while.

Nope,,,,I spend a lot of time on my cards,,,,,,

and if I want to make another to keep, not only can I,,,,,,,but it will probably take less time now that I have the design worked out,,,,,,but I usually make a BETTER one the second time around,,,,,

Yes it is M's that carries that frame. She said they are $9.99, so with a coupon, not too bad.

Yes, but I only send the cards I love to the people who I know will appreciate them. Knowing that they will love them as much as I did, helps.

I've seen pricey frames at Hobby Lobby. I use a cheap tabletop artist's easel (from when I dabbled in painting) to display my favorite LO of the moment.

I always take a good picture of the front and the inside so I can remember it. AND I only send my REALLY good cards to people that I know cherish and keep them... and appreciate how much WORK went into them!!

I take pics of everything I make; cards, LOs, off-the-page. It's nice to be able to look through them and show people.
