Being a cardmaker, its just natural that I also love sending out happy mail to friends and family. I like to try to keep my address book up to date, but it can be hard to figure out how to keep my book tidy when I need to change the addresses in there!
I had this idea to use some of Canvas Corp's Chalkstock to create these fun little address cards. I embellished the front sides with photos of my friends and family, along with other pretty embellishments, and then left the backside blank so I could write their addresses and special dates in with chalk.
I chose this Chalkstock for the reason that it acts as a paper verson of a chalkboard! You can write on it with chalk paint, markers, or regular chalk, and then wipe it off with water and write on it again. PERFECT for writing addresses and important info on the back of small cards. The best part? You can make your cards pretty and not have to worry when the time comes to change the info!
I have my cards displayed here in a little 7Gypsies Librarie Drawer. Canvas Corp Brands currently has these drawers on sale, and once they are gone, they are gone for good! I'm so happy I picked one up when I did, but if you dont have one dont worry! Just find a cute little box that works for you!
That's it! A simple way to keep my loved ones addresses organized even when they change. I used a journaling card die to make these little address cards, but you could make your own simply by trimming to the size you want and then rounding the corners.
Hope that gives you some fun ideas on how to use this Chalkstock. Its such a unique paper that its really worth a try!
