"I have learned so much in such a short period of time! I don't know where I would be without using Bette's designs and expertise. I just love all her enthusiasm and expertise."

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
You know you want to spend time making gorgeous cards
... but you end up spending your time searching for the right card and nothing gets done.
Let's face it--there's nothing more frustrating than searching around for a card template, only to feel like you're wasting a lot of time and never actually finding the card template you are want to use or the licensing won't let you use the template for anything except making your one card. And there's nothing more disheartening than spending time finding that template--only to have it not work because there are no measurements or SVG files to help you make the card.
You know that you should be finding exactly what you want and spending time making cards and not time searching! Maybe you've even tried to duplicate the card folds & cuts you have found on Pinterest or through a Google search only to discover you have to do more work.
And you know, it's not quite working.
You feel you are wasting time searching for templates. Most templates have you doing the work with the measurements. FREE SVG files have no examples or instructions. There is no way to connect with the author of the design. There seems to be nothing you can do but spend a lot of time searching and trying different ways to make your cards. Even Facebook groups do not always allow for links to tutorials.
Other people make it look easy. But for you, it's been anything but. You thought that the hard part was going to be cutting your card and applying the decorations, but as it turns out, that was only just the beginning. And now you feel like you must be missing something.
And you're not alone. Most card making crafters are having the same issues.
The truth is that having ready-made templates for folds & cuts is a game-changer, one that will show you examples, provide the PNG and SVG files, and even share the Cricut Design Space project with the score lines already defined.
The problem? There does not seem to be one source for everything you need, gathering all your own templates takes an extraordinary amount of time, and having to measure out every template often make achieving an easy way to make cards quickly more trouble than it's worth.
But what if there was a way to make sure you got it right?
Hi there, I'm Bette...and I give you permission to make crafting your priority, starting now!
And I want to help you solve the issue of not finding great card templates, once and for all.
The Handmade Card Collection was written as a result of hot having a ready resource for making my cards. I was spending time searching for that perfect template and the SVG files to go with it (and the step-by-step instructions)! Since I was already heavy into technology as a University professor, it was natural for me to create this compendium!
My career as a teacher, professor, and instructional designer has made it possible for me to add my passion for making greeting cards to the mix. I have been making cards and crafts for a very long time, and now I am offering my expertise to you.
I hope you will enjoy The Handmade Card Collection much as I enjoyed putting it together.
"Bette is an incredible author and communicator! Having written a zillion books, she is an expert on many topics and has a way of communicating complex issues in a very understandable way. What a great lady!"

The Handmade Card Collection
has everything you need:
I know spending time looking around, measuring, and testing your card cuts can be time-consuming, to say the least. Because you would rather be making cards instead of working through the design and test process, I created this compendium to give you everything you need to push your own creativity!

When finding templates, it is so much easier to know if you want to make a card by viewing the results. Real examples from using The Handmade Card Collection are there for each and every fold & cut you want to try.

Each project has both the PNG and SVG files available for you. The links are embedded in The Handmade Card Collection so that you do not need to go to another place for your downloads. All the files are provided for you to get started right away.
Cricut Design Space
Only minor changes in Design Space to make these projects work for you. Clear and easy instructions make this the perfect collection!
"Bette is a creative thinker, always looking for new ways to provide value to her clients, which in training and OD is all too rare. I was thrilled to work with her on the Cisco Guru Series, and thoroughly enjoyed her quick wit, fast thinking and striving for the highest possible quality."
