Hi everyone! I'm Wendy, and I LOVE to make cards! It is true stress relief for me and that is why I chose the name "Paper Therapy" for this group.

My main goal for this Critique Group is to share our card making projects, enjoy each others company and have monthly swaps and weekly challenges. Joining the swaps and challenges is completely voluntary, and in no way should deter you from joining the chatty part of this thread. I want the members of the group to play an active roll in choosing what our swaps and challenges will be. I want everyone who joins just plain enjoy the time here!

I finally mastered posting pics of my cards in my gallery and am not very familiar with the other technical aspects of this site/forum/group and how it all works. However, I think I'm ready to go to the next level so count me in!

Hey ladies~

We just got in from some Halloween fun and thought I'd check the boards. How's everyone's weekend so far? What are your plans? We are going to a Boo Fest tomorrow night and a hayride during the day. Should be lots of fun. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hi Kristin....that sounds like alot of fun.

I have to work all weekend and will only get to play in the evenings!

I have been reading all over about gals taking their kids to Pumpkin Patches and hay rides and the strangest thing is that they don't have any of that stuff here. They sell pumpkins at Walmart. They really should have a patch so I can get great pics of my kids there.

Something somewhat cool. I just got an email from the Chamber of Commerce, stating that the National Christmas Tree was selected in the Bitterroot National Forest (which is where I live), so they are having a ceremony on November 4th here and they are asking locals and local businesses to make ornaments to decorate the tree. Cool huh!! I will take the kids to that and hopefully get some great photo's then!!!

When I get home tonight, I will post the challenge!

Does anyone have any ideas about a swap????

Hmm...what about a card kit swap? Like each person could be assigned a partner and could create a kit to send to them. Then everyone would make a card from the kit. Just an idea. Maybe not a good one. LOL!

Welcome Nicole & Michelle!! I will add you to the first post!

Rusha...I think that is a super idea for a swap. I have never done a swap like that before.
Let's go with "Rusha's, Build a Card Kit Swap". Let's make it a go starting Monday, to see if any others want to join and start with us. Is it OK to have one rule? That the kit you make for your partner has to be from your current stash. That way no one has to spend money to make a kit, just postage to their partner!

OK...I am going to post this weeks challenge on the first post OK? When you get your challenge completed, PLEASE post your project here for all to rave about in your comments section. This is completely up to you all, but we could have a vote at the end of the week for a small prize. Let me know if this is something that you all want to do.

This is your group also, please make suggestions and get involved as much as you can. If you can't get to something one week or month, just say so, we still want you to check in with us and let us know how you are doing.

Let me know what you all think of the challenge and the swap...

You'll find the video really helpful. You will find out real quick the gal that does the video is a SU demo, but if you follow her instruction on the basics, your card will turn out perfect!!!

Nicole...brought a good point to me, I am going to post time restraints on the challenges and the swaps.

If this sounds good for you all...how about a new challenge every Friday, so your previous weeks challenge (if you can get to it) is posted by then, and as for this swap, if everyone wants to join, they need to let us know by Monday, I will post the partners and then everyone has until the following Monday to put their kits together and get mailed out. Am I giving everyone enough time? Once the kits are received, another week to make your card and post it? Is that not enough time??? Your thoughts?

Hi Vickie!! How are you doing? How long will hubbie be gone this time? I have been thinking of you alot about husbands being gone. My husband started working late in September about 500 miles away and he has been back, but he really won't get to spend and lengthy amount of time at home until December. I know your dh goes alot longer than that at times.

How is everyone else??

Don't forget to PM me your address for the Card kit swap. If you all don't mind...I love to send birthday cards, so please include your birthday.

So far only 5 gals have signed up, including myself. Hopefully we get a few more.

BBL!!!

Wendy you are so silly. We sometimes go and see family for the holidays but with work and school this year we will stay home. Really after doing it for so long you get use to them being gone. I get to catch up on card making and scrapbooking so look there is a bright side!

That is how I feel about dh being gone also. This is a busy time of year for me, getting all the cards and projects done that I want to get done before Christmas, so that is what takes up my time while he is away.

Michelle...you asked if anyone has done one of the Waterfall cards before. I made one last week and they are far more intimidating looking than they really are.

Here is a pic...there are more views in my gallery...

Okay! Now I am somewhat happy with my card, but I keep telling myself that this is my first attempt at a different type of card. I made some adjustments to my card. Insted of stamping I used felt flowers and buttons instead of eyelets. I don't have very many stamps yet.
Thanks for looking.

I'm somewhat clear on the kit, but I have a question. We put cardstock, emblishments, etc for one card right? I mean what would fit in a small manilla envelope?

Good morning Tammy!

Great card!!! Not so hard huh!! I love the flowers! That is a great idea. Do the falling pieces lie flat?

As for the swap, yes, enough embellishments and paper for one card and a small manila envelope would be more that big enough.

Don't forget to PM me your address and birthday if you want.

See you all later!!

My falling pieces lay flat in spots, I think I didn't get it folded very well. Plus when I put in the brad on the first flower that makes the first part of the waterfall stick out.

I think I will try the swap too. I will pm you my address shortly.

Thanks

Thanks so much, I was gonna use my silhouette with it but I'm a newbie with it so I wasn't sure how to shrink things and print them.

Hi Everyone,

I just made another card. I had seen this technique in a magazine where you cut strips and curl them. I had some beach stuff,(I always have a big supply of beach stuff!) and decided to make the ocean and beach scene. It's hard to see but I also did the sun the sameway.

Awww...Tracey....I would totally come if I was closer. I think we are pretty much all the way across the US from each other!

I think it is so neat that you all are so close. I would love to have someone closer!!!

Thank you all for checking in so often! This will be a fun thead!!! Tomorrow I will pick partners for the swap and get the addresses out to everyone.

I can't wait to see more Waterfall Cards!! The one I posted was for an example, but I am going to make another for the challenge. I may get crazy with some Stickles.

I wanted to run this by you all, but I would love to do some Christmas swapping. Let me know if you all have made to many commitments already and we can bypass December or post the Christmas swap early so everyone has a chance to get their projects done. Let me know!!!

Have a good night all! I am making some cards for a swap that I am going to on Wednesday. Can't wait to share!!!!

awww..thanks wendy!!! if u want, i would be glad to post some techniques....but the basics include, inking on it, covering it with patterned paper ...stickling it! but i have recently discovered new things, like spraying it with glimmer mist....or perfect pearls, and curling it (if it is grungeboard....grungeboard is my new best friend!)....u can stamp on grungeboard and cut it out...the options are endless for what u can do with it!!!
ok...i've said my piece....any other questions feel free to ask...i LOVE chipboard!!!
ok...back to my little elf cards...

WOw this thread has taken off even just this evening! Lots of posts to catch up on!

I am in for an exchange as long as it is not too costly as I am already in for a few others.

I didn't get to make my waterfall card tonight since I am suffering from a migraine. I think I should just go to bed. Hopefully tomorrow I will be better.

Will you be joining us in the swap. It is explained on the first post. I think we need one more to make it an even number. If not, also not a problem!

Welcome Lesley & Liz. Wendy those cards are just precious!

Okay I need some help with the card kit swap. I have never done this before. I understand that I'll need to pre cut and add everything needed to make the card. But how do you explain how to put it together? Do you just include a finished card of the one they are to make and write a little note in it?

OKay I braved it and tried the waterfall card. I totally loved it! I didn't end up using stamps because most of the stamps that I had were far too big for the small spaces alloted but I think it turned out okay!

cute rusha!!!
and i was hoping maybe u could clarify th card kit thing....alot of people have asked questions...and i want to make sure i do it right!!! now...in a swap i just did, we included a blank card and envelope, 2 sheets of patterned paper cut to 4.25 X 5.5, 1 sheet of cardstock cut the same, 1 ft of ribbon, 3-5 other embellishments, and 1 stamped image/sentiment. Is this kind of what we are doing?? sending stuff in like this?? Maybe a list of 'ingredients' to include would be helpful! oh..and then how fun will it be to make adn post our cards when we are done!! i'm looking forward to this!!!

Sure, I guess I could clarify but we'll have to check with Wendy since she's in charge!

I made a kit up already that I may or may not use, depending on what Wendy wants to do. But I included an envelope, a piece of cardstock, 2 strips of flocked paper, a few pieces of grungeboard, a stacked flower and some ribbon. I figured that way the recipient could pick and choose what to use on their card. I figure you can include whatever you like whether it be embellishments, stamped images, etc. as long as you include the cardstock and the envelope. Then you just leave it up to them to do whatever they want with it and you enjoy the surprise and pleasure of seeing what they have made with the kit you put together.

How does that sound Wendy?

OMG! I had to read a lot to catch up with you chatty chicks! First, I will admit that I didn't know what a Sillouette was, so I looked it up and afraid there's now another toy that I will want!

Tammy - your waterfall card is so pretty! I looove bright colors as you will all soon learn.

Wendy - your waterfall card is super fun and made me want a drink!!

I'm sure there's more that I wanted to comment on but i forget. I'll check back in later...I'm going to try my first waterfall card!

I am looking forward to seeing more waterfall cards! I must admit, I want to make another now! Great card idea Wendy!

About the swap, here are the rules, in case anyone is looking for them.

1. You must include an envelope with your kit.
2. You must include a precut piece of cardstock in your kit.
3. The rest of the kit is up to you - make sure you include what you would use on a card!
4. Have fun!!
