guest post with Lauren!

Hi lark&lace readers! My name is Lauren, and I blog at I'm also the founder of The You Are Project,  an online magazine that aims to help women discover their identity while inspiring creativity and giving back to the community. 

This past Christmas, I really wanted to decorate my own cards, but I wasn't in the mood for a big messy project. These bejeweled cards are SUPER easy to make, but they are still unique and colorful. All you need to do is purchase a set of blank cards and envelopes (I got mine from A.C. Moore). I scored these amazing stick-on gems in the children's craft aisle at Target (I was WAY too excited about them--I love how saturated the colors are!). All you need to do is stick the gems on the cards in a variety of patterns and VOILA! You have the perfect card for a birthday, Valentine's Day, or just to let your friend know that you appreciate her.Thank you so much for stopping by Lauren! And to all of my readers, check our Lauren's blogs and follow her on all of her adventures. She has many planned!
