Vicki Flinchum is our Guest Blogger for today and will show you how to make a great little gift for someone, a Mini Match Box Card Kit. This post is one of two, so stay tuned tomorrow for a second post by Vicki. You can visit Vicki at her blog here. First, here’s a little about Vicki:
"I’m married to a wonderful man, Michael and have two awesome children, Samantha and Troy, ages 10 and 5. Thanks to my great husband…I’m a Stay At Home Mom. I retired from 20 years of government service to stay home and raise my children. I have been involved in arts and crafts since I was a child. More recently I owned a faux painting and home décor business and an online scrapbook store. I became involved in scrapbooking about two years ago and was hooked. I love making altered projects and mini albums. I have taught classes on basic scrapbooking and tool techniques. I host an annual crop for my daughter’s Girl Scout troop. I love teaching people (young and old) to scrap, alter and create. I lost my Mom a few years ago and inherited a box of unmarked photos to chronicle my childhood. I think scrapbooking is important to preserve memories for future generations, something I wish my mother would have thought important too. I get my children involved in scrapping, making books and crafts, in general, as often as possible. I truly don’t think there is anything you can’t do with these hobbies. I’ve made books, altered doors, built clocks and altered furniture…all in the name of crafting and, of course, FUN."
