2022 Year in Review Blog Hop

I've been making cards for over a decade, but I only started sharing them publicly in the last year.

I've chosen my top six favorite cards from this amazing year of creative joy. I hope you like them too, and be sure to hop along with the rest of the Ellibelle's corner bloggers. All blogs linked below along with a way to link up your own year in review blog post!


Card #1: Okay, It's a Box



Card #2: Falling Apples

This was the first of my super crazy interactive cards for the year. When you open the card, the apples fall from the tree. It took nearly a week to get it to work right. :)



Card #3: Magic Closure



Card #4: Magnetic Keepsake Ornament

This snowman card might be my very favorite card of the entire year. I surprised even myself with this one. The ornament can be seen when the card is both open and closed, and is a removable keepsake magnet.



Card #5: Bloomin' Fun Fold



Card 6: Pop Up Box
