Handmade Cards Because…


A fellow card-making friend emailed me last week to request a laser engraved frame that she could display at a craft fair.  She sent me a snap shot of a hand-written sign with the words in the frame above.  I have heard way too many people (in general) comment that it is a waste of time to make and give handmade cards and this phrase speaks of why we make them.  Wouldn’t you agree? 


After finishing the frame above someone asked if I could make a smaller one and that’s when I came up with this one.  This frame is laser cut and I can attach a kickstand style arm to show it off on a table or a hanging triangular single to hang on a wall.  If you’re interested in getting one for yourself or as a gift, click on the image to get the specifics.

Thank you so much for sharing my love for all things crafty, but especially card making, which is my first love.  But the laser machine is high up there too! LOL

Laser Engraved Bone Folder

The new adventure in my life!  To expand my love of crafts I purchased a laser machine and oh boy am I constantly over the moon with it!  The possibilities are endless and I just can’t get enough of it!  I started engraving bone folders and the demand became so overwhelming that I just can’t stop!  LOL

The fonts above are some of the fonts you can choose for your bone folder.  However, if you have a favorite font and know the name I can find it!  There are four ways to order:  1) on my website 2) email me at maggie@maggiemadecards.com 3) via Facebook Messenger or 4) with the contact me form.

Cost is $9.00 (plus $3 shipping).  I also combine shipping if ordering more than one.  If you are outside of the U.S. please use the contact me form so I may provide you with shipping cost.

You can get one for FREE and here’s how:

  1. Join as a demonstrator ($99 and receive an additional $26 as a bonus from Stampin’ Up!). No need to ever sell anything if you don’t want to.  Many do it just to get more for their buck!  Join here!
  2. Place an order from my on-line store after you order $75 in product (before tax & shipping) AND use the code below:

Have a fabulous day!
Maggie
