is a website that I, Michelle in Calgary have put together to
showcase my hand made greeting cards and projects. I was as
much a beginner as anyone else a few years ago but because
of my passion for stampin' & scrappin' I have become better
and better and have showcased many of my cards and projects
on this site and on my blog.
make my own cards?
On an average a household may use 30-50 cards per year for the following:
6) Children school valentine + Halloween
8) Get well
11) Good luck/best wishes
12) Baby/bridal showers
13) Invitation/Announcements (parties/birth/engagements)
14) New year
16) Canada Day
17) Mother's day
18) Father's day
19) Grandparents day
20) Sweetest day
23) Teacher appreciation
25) Thinking of you
26) Saint Patrick's day
27) Fall festival
28) Secret sister/pal/admirer
29) Remembrance Day
30) Boss/Secretary/Nurse's Day
I imagine there are some more but these are the common reasons for cards.
30 cards = $118.50 at $3.95 each
Now, to take it a step further, now buy a pack of Stampin' Up! cardstock that has 24 sheets per pack. 24 sheets is equivalant to 48 cards per pack. So I will work with the 48 cards to figure costs. 48 x $3.95 = $189.60 (plus taxes)
WOW…48 store bought cards would cost $189.60 (plus taxes) whereas a pack of cardstock costs only $6.46 for a pack of 24 sheets (plus shipping & GST).
I really be any good at this?
you can make great cards and projects at home! I put on free
Workshops in the Calgary and surrounding areas teaching people in only
a couple of hours how to make cards and other papercrafts. Each person that attends one of my workshops even has the chance to take home 2 make n' takes,
all for FREE.
