Hi! I`m from Sri Lanka and I am 19 years old. These days I`m studying for an exam. Actually its difficult for me to sit at one place and study for several hours :D. So I invented a brilliant method to over come my hyper-activeness ;).
I broke one hour in to 2 periods (40 + 20 min) and I studied for 40 mins and spend the rest of the time on card making and watching your tutorials.
I really like them. They are very useful and easy to understand.
At the end of the day I can enjoy the cuteness of a nice greeting card. Now I have a hobby and I never used to have a Hobby. It has been only two days since I started my hobby and I`ve got two cards with me now.
Here are some pictures of them...

Well for your first hobby all these cards are amazing and I am so pleased that you have sent them in to the Gallery.
There are lots of people that are new to this hobby every day and I get many emails from people telling me how much they enjoy the website.
This makes it all worthwhile and I hope you will try many more of the ideas and projects and send in more of your designs.
It won't be long before you get some commnets and I am sure that you will be pleased with what they say.
Last month I've been really busy with my studies and new projects. I had to make 3 huge projects, 1 for each subject I follow. I wanted my file covers to be cute. So I decided to add some of my handwork to decorate it.
For the 1st project (purple one) I covered the front of my box file with a padding layer and then covered it again with a shiny wrapping paper.
Then I arranged my elements on the it including my two cute buttons which were made out of a cardboard sticker backing.
Finally I made another cover out of hard polythene to keep the box file protected. To make it look nicer I ran some stitches along the edge.
For the 2nd one (black and Pink) I used black and pink card boards to cover the front and back sides of the box file and pasted a polythene on it.
To remove the sharp connecting edges of the two color card boards I added a shiny elephant border. Finally I decorated the side part by passing a thread through some punched holes in order to form few crosses.
I did the 3rd one in the same way. Hoping to make more cards as soon as possible.

What a really pretty way to store all your work and no one will have the same thing ... it is truly unique.
I am sure that many people will want to copy this idea and in the file boxes many things can be stored ... and not just university or college projects.
These flies could be adapted to store unmounted stamps in or Spellbinders to keep them safe.
And you could have great fun covering these file boxes in your individual style just as Himali has done for hers.
