Papercrafts I Made in June

 It might not look like it but I made a ton of cards this month! 

Alec wanted to give ALL the teachers he's had in high school a going away/thank you gift for graduation week so I made up 30 cards (in 3 different styles). I also needed to make 20 thank you cards for him to mail out after his graduation party (since we didn't open gifts at the party he never got to really say thank you in person).  

That's 50 cards!

We also had a few birthdays and I joined the card chain challenge again this month so I had to make those cards too. 











At the very end of the month I had a day or two to do some scrapbooking and made up a few pages:

  1. As always, your cards are so pretty! It would be such a wonderful gift to receive a handmade card! People rarely even send store bought cards these days…how thoughtful to spend the time to create a beautiful card for someone (and 50 at that!).

    1. It definitely has been busy; in all the ways but it's been so much fun so I can't complain.

    1. We made those for "other" staff members in the school that Alec had hit it off with that weren't necessarily his teachers like the cafeteria workers and some of the office staff.

    It sounds like you have been kept busy with all the cards to make! The thank you cards are just brilliant and the scrapbook pages look fantastic.

    1. I loved that he wanted to give them all a little thank you gift... but it was fun trying to transport all 30 gifts to the school in a way that made it easy for him to handle. I thought it was so sweet that he came up with the gift idea all on his own.

  18. That's a HUGE undertaking Jo - well done! And I love that Alec wanted to thank his teachers and also his friends - a sign of a thoughtful young man.

  19. these are such fun, Joanne. I know your recipients will be thrilled!

  20. That's amazing! I have to admit, I would have just gone to the store and bought them. Although, I just bought a card for a wedding, and it was almost $6! So, you were smart in making your own!

    1. I like to tell my husband I'm saving us money this way; though I'm not really sure that I am since I buy so many supplies each year! LOL

  24. Such lovely cards, Joanne! And each is extra special since you crafted them yourself! Alec seems like such a thoughtful young man! One of my most cherished memories as a retired kindergarten teacher was when former students wrote me a note or stopped by for a visit! I had two students who stopped by regularly, well into their 30's! So special!

  25. Such beautiful cards, Joanne... and extra special since they are each created with love! Alec seems like such a thoughtful young man! I'm sure each card he sent was greatly appreciated! One of my most cherished memories as a now retired kindergarten teacher was when former students took the time to write a note or stop by for a visit. I actually had two students who visited regularly, well into their thirties! SO special!

  26. I love these! I always love seeing what you create. I don't do paper crafting now as much as I used to. Your cards are darling, and I love your scrap pages, too. Visiting from Gma's Photo Generic linkup.
