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 fold & cut and nothing gets done.
Let's face it--there's nothing more frustrating than searching around for a card fold & cut idea, only to feel like you're wasting a lot of time and never actually finding the card template you are want to use. 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 file 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 Card Compendium was written as a result of hot having a ready resource for making my cards. I was spending time searching for new folds & cuts plus more time trying to figure out the measurements! 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 do have a degree in technology (Ph.D.) but my passion for making cards, paper crafts, vinyl designs, paper flowers, and DIY home decor is the real reason I do what I do.
I hope you will enjoy The Card Compendium 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!"

WHAT SETS THE CARD COMPENDIUM APART?
The Card Compendium
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!
Every cut has an example
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 Card Compendium are there for each and every fold & cut you want to try.
SVG or PNG
Each fold & cut project has both the PNG and SVG files available for you. The links are embedded in The Card Compendium so that you do not need to go to another place for your downloads.
You can never have too many files but having the already organized make this so easy to use and reference.
All the files are provided for you to get started right away.
Cricut Design Space
Just in case you really do not want to take the time to upload your files, change the Linetypes, or colors, The Card Compendium also includes links to Cricut Design Space projects. All are ready for you to score and cut!
