Welcome to the 15th stop on VC_Rocks July Blog hop!  VC_Rocks is a great group of women who love stamping, scrapbooking, and Stampin' Up!  If you're hopping along in order, you arrived here from Angela's blog.  If not, and you would like to see more of our creativity, continue hopping from the link at the end of this post.  You can also find a list of all the participating blogs on the VC_Rocks blog.
Our theme this month is ABC -- Anything But a Card.  My project is a Card Keeper Portfolio made from a template by Stampin' Up!  These are fun to make and great for giving a set of assorted hand made cards as a gift.  The first photo shows the keeper closed by tying the Very Vanilla ribbon into a bow.  The design on the front was case'd from a card posted on SCS by Janine Tinklenberg.
The next photo shows the card keeper open with a few cards inside.
Supply list:  Nature Walk and Sincere Salutations stamp sets; Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist, and Old Olive card stock; Very Vanilla and Old Olive ribbon; brads; Stampin' Write markers.

Thanks for stopping by.  The next stop on the hop is the blog of Mary Jo Price-Williams.  Enjoy!
