About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today! Check out Peg's blog, Peg's Crafting Corner to see what else she has been up to!

Q: Should I decorate the inside of my card? What about the envelope?

A:  You can decorate the inside of the card.  Even simple little pieces like corners added around the sentiment makes a great look and continues the theme from the outside in. Stickers, stamps and die cuts are great to use for this. Envelopes can be easily stamped and colored, too.  Keep in mind when decorating any envelope that is to be mailed that the embellishments need to be secured tightly so they aren’t able to be caught in the postal machines.

DIY window A-Frame card to celebrate spring!
