I recently purchased a card-making kit and found it to be easy and fun.
Card Making Kit Fun
Last December, I participated in a card-making workshop on Zoom hosted by my friend, Marsha, on the East Coast. I met and worked with other women from all around the country in the Zoom room. It was like a quilting bee for 2020. All women were working on cards or scrapbooking while together in conversation. An enjoyable time during the pandemic. The card making workshop started at 10AM EST, before sunrise for me on the west coast. You’ll notice the darkness in my photos.
I ordered a card kit from Creative Memories. It came ready to go to make twelve cards for $20. I also purchased adhesive. I really enjoyed it, and plan to make another set of cards soon. Here are some photo details. This might be fun for you, too.
Within minutes, I was ready to go!
Kit supplies, adhesive roll and foam squares (sold separately), scissors (my own), and instructions were all set up. Plus, I prepared some snacks for while I work. My laptop was ready for the Zoom video call.
All the pieces are numbered by card and letter for easy identification.
Below you see the parts for Card #9.
I separated the parts into piles by number.
I pulled out one card at a time and just followed the instructions to assemble.
I finished the cards in less than two hours and had a good time.
Below are six of the finished cards. I did customize a couple with bonus pieces that came in the box.
I addressed, stamped, and sent each card on its way to friends and family.
Stay creative in 2021, my friends!

I love making cards. I keep an assortment of colored paper, stickers, and other embellishments and have fun putting them together. I usually try and keep an assortment of greetings cards on hand, but when I don’t have one that fits, it is nice to be able to whip up a card for someone. Happy Card Making!
That’s fun to know. It is a nice creative outlet and goes back to the beauty of a hand-written encouragement. I don’t think I’ll do many cards, but you never know!
I remember that you loved Creative Memories, oh so many years ago. I’ve been making cards for 23 years. It is a wonderful way to send a paper hug.
I loved Creative Memories for many years. I no longer make scrapbooks, but enjoyed this little speedy card kit. I’d love to see your cards! I imagine they are beautiful. Hope you are doing well!
You have a good memory! By the way.
