  60. Jennifer Gaillard says:

    It’s a toss-up between birthday cards and thank you cards!! I used to do a lot for Christmas, need to start doing those again!! Happy world cardmaking day!

  61. Alyce says:

    I always look forward to World Card Making Day. There was an art store near my house. We would have a few tables set where customers could come and make a card. Unfortunately, the store closed. I’m going to miss celebrating with other people. But I’ll definitely be making cards.
    I think that I make birthday cards the most, followed “thinking of you” cards.

    I just make 12 cards this week. I try to have cards handy for any situation. Your samples were gorgeous. Would love to try some new supplies.

  68. Teresa Cooley says:

    I love the camper card, so cute. I make most of my cards. A homemade card adds a more personal touch to the recipient , plus they are fun to make.

  69. Lin Rivera says:

    My family is huge 112 lol. I feel like I’m perpetually making Christmas cards although I make others. I make it a point that everyone gets a handmade Christmas ? card from me every year. Thanks for beautiful inspiration

  70. Debbie Meyer says:

    I’ve just spent the last week making Christmas cards but I guess if you’re asking for the whole year it would be birthday cards.

  71. Gina Baronian-Moore says:

    I’ve just caught the card-making bug, but I look forward to making lots of “just because” cards!

    Happy World Card Making day!

  78. Kathy says:

    I make all kinds of cards but my favorites to make are personalized children birthday cards– I mean really, who doesn’t like to see their name on something??

    I make a variety of card themes, but seem to enjoy the muted color of sympathy ones best. Unfortunately, there is always a need for them also. I really enjoy making Christmas cards too!

  80. Katelyn C says:

    The occasion I find myself making the most cards for is probably birthdays, but I do also make a lot of thank you cards. Thanks for this lovely giveaway!

  81. Melanie says:

    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  82. MaryAnn Fortunato says:

    BD, anniversary, holiday, special occasion, congratulations, baby, wedding, thanks, sympathy………………..I make them all. I haven’t bought a store card in many years, but I do get some inspiration from them as well as from blogs & websites.

    I would love to win this awesome surprise package. Would awesome to come home to after a long, tiring day to see this in the mail.

  84. Linda Tanso says:

    I would say Christmas is the theme I do the most. I usually make around 42 each year and no two are alike. It is so much fun and people appreciate them being hand made. I think of the person or family who it is for while creating.

  85. Tracy Thomas says:

    I LOVE MAKING CARDS! I mostly make very primitive, vintage style cards. I attended the expo yesterday in Akron for the first time. I am addicted now!!

  86. Cara Feeney says:

    I love the inspiration from SCT. And a mystery box would be a welcome surprise in my mailbox.

  87. Judy D says:

    I just love the camper card!!! Seems most of my cards are birthday or thinking of you. I just keep making and making; I give away “bunches” as gifts. It would really be great to win the “mystery”… thanks for the chance. Happy card making day!

  88. Lauri Gammon says:

    I love making cards! Some of my favorites to make are my kids’ birthday invitations and birth announcements for moms-to-be.

  89. Cindy says:

    I make cards for every occasion – baby, thank you, birthday cards, thinking of you, sympathy and get well. For the first day of summer I made “summertime” (summertime and the living is easy…) cards. I send Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards. I love creating cards; it’s so rewarding to know I’m doing something special for people who are special to me.

  90. Michele Washburn says:

    I love making holiday cards and birthday cards for friends and family. I also make a “thinking of you” card each week, and send to my daughter while she is away at university.

  91. Diane Schmitt says:

  92. Mary ann says:

    I make all types of cards, even blank sentiments, I love giving them even if the recipients don’t appreciate it.

  93. Shannon says:

    Love scrapbookexpo! I love to make Christmas cards, but also tend to make a lot of Birthday cards. I really need to craft some sympathy cards as I never have one when I need it!

  94. Alice says:

    Usually more birthday cards than anything; and this year I made 6 or 7 wedding cards. Next would be Christmas cards.

  95. Sherry L says:

    I make all my own cards plus cards for the soldiers to send to their families love to try new things.

  96. Celeste Brodnik says:

    I use birthday cards most often; however, I seem to make more love or thinking of you type cards.

  97. Pam Dix says:

    It’s hard to decide which is my favorite – making scrapbooks or making cards. I think my favorite is making cards to give away.

  98. Joan T says:

    I love that a day is set aside for card making. My sister and I are cardmakers but she lives in Massachusetts and I live in Kansas so we don’t get to be together to enjoy our hobby. But this year we will both be making cards so we will sort of be together having fun making all sorts of cards. We might even Skype while we’re making cards and even do a couple card challenges to each other.

  99. Bevb says:

    These cards are all very beautiful and different, awesome, such talent. I am looking forward to card making day and seeing all the beautiful creations. Would love to win this great prize. Surprises are the BEST!

  100. Annette M says:

    Sounds like an awesome giveaway! I make notecard sets with map and postal themes. They are a lot of fun and those that I share them with seem to enjoy them.

  101. Denise Brookins says:

    This would be fabulous to win! I’ve stressed for days on what to put together for the hubby’s birthday, because I’m a newbie at this and wanted it to be just right, of course… and time was running out! No way would the go-to florals we so often use for women, do for him… so as often happens, last night I was on my way to bed at 10:00 and as I walked by my craft room, I was just pulled in… emerged 3 1/2 hours later with multicolored fingertips and a card, and dropped into bed! Thank goodness it’s a weekend! Lol Glad that stress is over! Whew!

  102. Corinne White says:

    I make many friendship cards that can be left blank on the inside to just write a short note, or I can add a birthday or some other sentiment on the inside, depending on the occasion. It’s handy to have the generic card fronts done so I can quickly customize it for a particular occasion.

  103. Robin Rachwal says:

    I mostly make birthday card as along with the normal birthday cards for family and friends, I make a birthday card for every month the first year of any new great nephews & great nieces. So far only nephews but keeping the pink paper. I make my Christmas cards and my dad’s as well. Anniversary & Sympathy too. I would love to win as one can never have too many paper supplies.

  104. Gertie Boven says:

    LOVE making cards of all sorts. Love even more giving those cards away to family and friends!!! So having a chance to win a mystery box full of card making supplies would just be so awesome…. Thanks for this chance to win!!

  105. Cathy DiBlasi says:

    Creating cards depends on what is going on in my life at the time. Birthdays are always a constant. However, the need for encouragement seems to grow each year. I have learned the tremendous power a card can have when received in times of need.

  106. Joy Hager says:

    Thanks for the inspiration! I make a lot of “thinking of you” cards, thanks for the chance to win!

    This is my favorite time of year to make my cards. Multi holidays are coming quickly. The fall colors are my favorite. So much more layering in my cards. Lol. I really get so many wonderful ideas from this site. The kids seem more inspired to be creative so we get more quality time together. Thank you all again for your inspiration and creativity. And for sharing them with us all.

  109. Donna Sue says:

    I think I make birthday cards the most but love the seasonal ones as well – especially the acorn card – how adorable!

  110. Mary B says:

    I probably create more birthday cards than any others, followed by general cards just to say hi and thank you cards. I donate a lot of them to various charities and groups.

  111. Kay K says:

    Card making brings out all creativeness! I enjoy making a few cards a week. I make birthday, thank you, graduation and congratulations cards the most. If I had to narrow it down to just one type of card I make the most it would be birthday cards. I love to use all kinds of embellishments & bling and mixing different colors and patterns is so fun. Getting ideas from Stamp & Scrapbook is the best. Thank you for all your hard work and talent. Happy World Card Making Day to everyone!

  112. chris mohnasky says:

    It;s a toss up between Birthday cards and Thinking of you cards. Had a great time at Scrapbooking Expo especially the Creativity Center.

Next card that are my favorite to make are Christmas cards, because at the holiday time people appreciate getting card sets that they can use for the next holiday season.

  118. Marzee Carnes says:

    I make more Birthday cards than other cards, but i love to make any kind of card. I use my circut often to make shaped cards, but sometimes have a hard time parting with those! LOL.

  119. Marissa Flores says:

    I tend to make more birthday cards than anything else, but in reality, I’ve made cards for every occasion! I especially like making cards for the holidays 😉

  120. Sarah Peyton says:

    The cards I like to create the most are pet loss/sympathy cards. As a vet tech, it Is a privilege to be able to honor a special pet with a card to send to the owner. Creating their card while remembering all the special things about that animal helps ease the sadness of losing that special furry friend.

  121. Margo says:

    Most of the cards I make are for birthdays. I started making cards as a part of a ministry at church. I discovered I had a knack for them and I fell in love with it!

  122. Sharon Bahuaud says:

    I mostly make Birthday cards for my family and friends but today I am finishing thank you cards. After that I will work on two Birthday cards.

  123. Rachael says:

    I love making cards! I make the most at Christmas time but usually it’s dozen or so each of 2-3 different designs…throughout the year I make a lot of birthday cards and a few just because cards.

  124. Daisy Osuna says:

    I am always making birthday and Christmas cards. I love the reaction of people when they realize the card is homemade. It makes all the work and time even more worth it!

  125. E. Renee Collier says:

    I try to make a few cards for every occasion that I can think of; birthday, thank you, congratulations, sympathy, new baby, holiday, etc. That way they’re ready to go when I need them. Of course birthday greeting cards are always the largest amount in my stash. It’s ALWAYS someone’s birthday!

  126. Shahnaz says:

    I often make birthday cards! Who doesn’t love to get birthday cards!? And who doesn’t love giveaways!? Thanks SCRAPBOOKEXPO

  135. Mary says:

    I make mostly blank cards so that I can personalize them for the recipient. There’s nothing like getting something in the mail that’s not a bill!

  136. Brenda Stainton says:

    I tend to make a lot of Birthday , hank-you and Get Well cards. I also like to give my cards an extra touch by adding a stamped message on the back of the card. It says ” A one of a kind card for a one of a kind person”. I think it makes the receiver feel special. Thank for your tutorial and the chance to win.

  137. Sabrina says:

    Card making day? Does that mean I can spend all day crafting?? I like to make “just because” cards the most!

  138. Terry Simmons says:

  146. Heather M. says:

    I guess I make mostly birthday cards … But I really just like sitting down in my card studio and making whatever inspires me!!!!

  151. Donna Born says:

    Some type of Thinking of You/Inspirational card is what I make the most of. I like surprising people with a card they aren’t expecting.

  152. Maryann Stahl says:

    I’m not sure what the category/theme is I do most when making cards … I guess I’d call it Hello / Just a Note / Thinking of You / Just Because, maybe!! I really enjoy stamping FUN characters / with fun captions to send to friends “just because”!! Snail mail is a lost communication avenue! I love getting a card or a note …. don’t you??!!??

  153. Julie says:

    I love to make get well cards and encouragement cards. We have elderly ones at our church that love receiving mail. It’s a small way to bring them a smile.

  166. Sammantha & Wendy McLendon says:

    My mom and I are mostly the card people in our family. We use and collect cards for almost every occasion you can possibly think of Christmas, new baby, thank yous, anniversaries… You name it we love them. The designs and Creations you have displayed here on the post are unlike any I’ve ever seen. I know we would like this prize gift because we have family in almost every state that we would love to be able to write a card to every once in awhile. Most of all your card collection and selections would give us something to look forward to something to get our minds off of other things like our medical conditions. Both me and my mother moderate medical conditions that make everyday life very very difficult good and so we tend to turn to pen paper and cards to give ourselves something better to focus on. If you were to choose me and my mother to give your gift price to I can promise you that it will not go to waste. And Justin this gift will do wonders to boost our morale when the days with difficult illnesses are pretty bad. Thank you so much for the consideration, and we hope to hear from you soon! 🙂

  167. Megan Caulder says:

    I would have to say that I make/use birthday cards and Christmas cards the most. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a fun prize!! 🙂

  170. MaryAnn Samuelson says:

    I try to make multi use cards that can be for any occasion and then all I have to do is add a die cut thanks, birthday, hello sentiment on the front, But sadly lately I am making more sympathy cards. Happy WCMD and looking forward to seeing you all in Ontario!!!

  171. Jenelle Reyes says:

    I tend to make Thank You and Birthday cards the most. I also like to make Thinking of You cards as well. The theme depends on the person I’m making it for. But I love to use flowers and butterflies. Masculine cards are difficult for me though! Lol Happy WCMD!

  172. Patti says:

    Just getting started in the card making craft…. love the creativity and the personal touches I can add!

  173. Rhonda Rushing says:

    I make cards for all occasions, then bundle them up and give them as gifts to friends and family.

    Birthday and Holiday cards are what I make the most, I like lots of layering and tend to lean toward a floral and lacey Victorian look for the most part. But the more I learn I’m also branching out in different techniques.

    We live miles away from any family so I enjoy creating cards for holidays and special occasions to send to friends and family that we don’t often get to see.

  190. Beverly Stokes says:

    I end up making Sympathy cards most often, because of my age. I keep handmade cards at work, so if someone has a birthday that we have forgotten, or a death or illness, I have cards ready to send.

  197. Angela Shock says:

    I never knew about card making until about five months ago when I was asked to do a demo at work. I work at a craft store and was asked to demo a fuse tool.

    I love to make holiday cards, thank you cards, and I’m thinking of you cards. I think the magic of receiving a surprise card in the mail makes everything better! It all started with my mom sending me cards!

  209. Kathy Riske says:

    Any card you make can be turned into a full Scrapbook page! I love making cards and the personel touch you can put on each one. I love to share my cards and will take them to nursing homes so that the residents there can sent a note to someone. A lot of elderly can’t write. Card making is a simple satisfying talent I love to share and feel so good about – “Just Thinking of You! ” are my favorites. The “Make and Takes” are one of my favorite things to start off the Expo doing!

  224. Carol Kis says:

    I send out “just because” cards the most. No real reason, a cute stamp, a great saying, a friend was there with an ear.
