Crafting Calling Cards

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I signed up for a real-life scrapbooking class with Amy Tangerine at a local scrapbooking store, Paper Tales.  I’m excited for the class, and I’m excited to meet some local scrapbookers who share my love of this hobby! 

Meeting new people can be a little bit scary and awkward though.  I wanted to make the process as painless and low-risk as possible. So I came up with the idea of a personal crafting calling card. Some cute calling cards with my contact information to give out to people I meet whom I seem to get along with, and would want to be friends with.  It’s pretty low risk.  I give out the card and if they want to come to my blog, email me, or contact me on Twitter or Instagram, they totally could!  And I won’t be heart-broken if they don’t. :D

So I designed these crafting calling cards in Photoshop, using my digital stash from The Lilypad
And I got them printed at, because I had heard they have high-quality thick cards, and they allow you to print as many different cards as you would like in your card package. 

A week later, I got them in the mail.

They are every bit as cute as I had imagined they would be!  Here are my six different cards all laid out.  The back of each card has my little headshot, the “I craft”, and my contact info.

For more information on the digital supplies I used to make these crafting calling cards, you can go to my blog post at The Lilypad blog.  :)  And if you want to print some yourself, you can go to (referral link).
