Remember last week, when I told you about the whole big box of wonderful that I received from Canvas Corp? Well, here’;s another project I created with some of the goodies I received…;

Now let me backtrack just a little…;a few months agopersonalized gifts for kids, I posted my Forty before 40 list. One of the items on this list is to send birthday cards to friends and family…;I’;ve already failed…;miserably. BUT, I WILL get better…;now that I have this super-duper handy-dandy organizing system.This is what I started with:

Then I cut a piece of the scrapbook paper to size and DecouPage’;d it onto the bottom of the drawer…;

Yes…;the paper is a bit wrinkly…;no, I’;m not the best DecouPage’;r…;admittedly…;I used the individual month dividers that came with the drawer to organize the different cards I will need throughout the year.Then I made a couple of postcards using Canvas Corppaper…;I like to have a couple on hand to use for a quick note or thank-you…;

One sheet of the 12×;12 paper had these wonderful vintage-style postcard templates on it…;then I simply cut two other sheets with patterns and colors I liked to size, and attached them to what would be the front of the post card. So fast &; so easy. And completely personal. I think I may eventually add some other embellishments to the front of the postcards, but they are ready-to-go as-is if I decide to leave them alone.

I now have this drawer sitting right on the main surface of my hutch in my craft area…;easy to find…;no more excuses for not sending correspondence…;I hope.
