In Monday’s Mail October 22nd, 2012

Card #36 | Sent to Robin in CA

I was SICK last week (hence the design of my first card!)
Then, Wednesday through Friday, we had some really great BPC meetings (at my house) where we were able to take a really good look at our internal structures and roles & responsibilities since bringing on Ella Publishing. I feel energized and excited for the future, but all this means I’m a week behind on my Happy Mail

Card #37 | Sent to Latoya in TX

So, I’m catching up with FOURTEEN cards that I created with the help of my sweet nanny, Lauren, who is really becoming more of a personal assistant now (thankfully!) I will note which cards Lauren made. I’m really enjoying this campaign with Doodlebug, but I’m realizing that I’m not really passing along any details or tips that I’m learning and developing as I go, so I’ll be including a little more information from time to time …

Card #38 | Sent to Jennifer in AK

Tip: I added a touch of bling to the top of this graduation cap. This along with the polka dots and twine, give an otherwise generic card a more custom and feminine feel!

Card #39 | Sent to Danielle in MT

Tip: The next three cards employ a FUN peek-a-boo element. Don’t forget that you DON’T have to center decorative elements inside a window.

Card #40 | Sent to Kelly in CA

Tip: Wrap sticker sentiments around a window and ground a larger decorative element inside a card with paper and sticker strips!

Card #41 | Sent to Shawn in NE

Card created by Lauren.
Creating your own peek-a-boo is an easy as pulling out a circle punch!

Card #42 | Sent to Iris in TX

YES. Halloween cards can be PINK!

Card #43 | Rachna in PA

Card #44 | Sent to Jenifer in WA

Tip: I flipped this card inside out, so that the inside pattern is now on the outside of the card. I also turned card #36 inside out! Note: I used my glue gun to adhere the button, before attempting to tie the twine bow, much easier!

    Love these! Adorable!

  2. What a great bunch of Happy Mail & Lauren’s did a fantastic job on these, too!

  3. These are wonderful! Just looking at them inspire me to go send happy mail to someone :) -Enjoy your week!

  4. I am sad. There is no mail going out to Canada only the states :(

    • Tammy,

      I have my nanny pull random names from the BPC member list each week — I’ll make sure we send some to Canada this week!

  5. Your cards are darling! They are sure to make anyone smile!

  6. Glad you’re feeling better Stacy! I was sick for two weeks with a bad cold and pretty much hung out on the couch most of the time. Very nice cards! I’m just finishing up a birthday card for my cute nephew who will be two and getting ready to put some other cards in the mail for a cousin and some friends who are having an anniversary next month. I love sending cards!! Have a happy week!

  7. Bernadette says:

    What an adorable bunch of cards! They made me smile (although my sinus headache has had me frowning all day) and want to go make some cards! Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

  9. These are fantastic! WTG Lauren!

  10. Everything is very open with a really clear explanation of the challenges.
    It was definitely informative. Your website is useful.
    Many thanks for sharing!
