Thank You Cards - January Mosh Posh Kit

January is a great time for Thank You cards. At our house we received so many heartfelt gifts during the holiday season that I am in desperate need of some thank you cards to send out!

This month's Mosh Posh kit provided me with exactly what I needed to create lots of colorful cards.
The only products that I used were: Basic Grey Urban Prairie Patterned Paper, American Crafts cardstock, Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey buttons, Basic Grey self-adhesive chipboard, American Crafts thickers, Basic Grey Alpha Stickers and a little machine stitching. Easy peasy.

I know I have said this before, but having a kit to start with really makes life so much easier.

Everything already matches. I didn't have to search out the perfect piece of matching cardstock or just the right shade of pink flower, it was already there for me.

A few hours of watching Golden Girls, 3rd Rock from the Sun and Frasier was all it took to create 7 handmade thank you cards.

By the way... does anyone have a circle cutting system that they like? I handcut everything and while I really like the sloppy circles for this project, sometimes I need a perfect circle. Any suggestions? Thanks!! :)

beautiful cards! I have had the Creative Memories circle cutting system for over 5 years, use it FREQUENTLY, bought new blades once, and LOVE IT!

Estee, I love all of your fantastic cards! Every one of them. I use the EK Success Circle Scissors Plus to cut circles up to 6 inches. It is the most "user friendly" circle cutting system I have ever seen. Put your paper on your glass mat, turn the knob to the size you want, place it on the paper and cut!

Oh, how did I miss these yesterday!?! I commented on the first post, but didn't see this one! Those cards are just SO adorable! I love, love, love them!! I happen to like your messy circles. It works!! For perfect cirlces, when I need one, I have the Coluzzle template...both the big and small one. It's good for cutting cirlces. I may have to lift some of your lovely cards! :)

Estee, I love your cards! They are beautiful. I love MP's kit this month, too. As for circle cutters, I use Creative Memories. For me, they are the easiest. They cut up to a 6 or 61/2" circle. So very simple to use. Even Brittany has been using them since she was little. Find a consultant in your area, and see if you can try them out before you buy anything. I have some... I will email you regarding..
