Welcome to the first official blog post for Cards by DeCaro!

I am so excited to finally start my own card blog. I have been crafting for so many years – everything from floral arrangements and wreaths to crocheting, scrapbooking and cardmaking.  I think my favorite has been working with paper.  I am addicted to colorful, pattererned paper.  I don’t know if I can ever have too much paper, but I am sure my husband would beg to differ. I also love stamping and die cutting so I have been spending most of my time making cards. I get to use all sorts of paper and stamps and dies. It is so gratifying to see the look on the receivers face when they open one of my hand made cards.

The other reason I love crafting so much is because my girls craft with me. They are soon to be 11 (yes twin girls) and they are both so talented. They are so creative and because they love  to make cards for everyone, they have had a lot of practice.

I am going to try my best to show you some fun techniques and some great cards. I will try to link to as many resources and sites as I can so you can try this on your own.  Thanks for reading and happy crafting!!!
