The Paper Hoarder

A Hashtag Thank You

I recently took a fantastic course through the Canadian Women in Communications called the Social Media Career Accelerator.  The course took place every Tuesday evening from 7pm to 9pm for four weeks in April/May.

It was a really fantastic experience.  I met a bunch of bright women from different backgrounds, all with a common interest in learning more about the world of social media.

We had lively discussions about Twitter, Pinterest, and other social media sites.  Thanks to the course, I am now obsessed with raising my Klout score.

I was super excited that the course took place at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto which coincidently was where I did my degree.  So happy to be back on campus, and to reconnect with an old TA who is now the director of the programme that I graduated from.

I made this simple hashtag inspired thank you card for the instructors and the team that organized the course.

Appy Birthday!

Like I have stated many times before, cards for men are hard!

And this one for my friend Mark’s birthday was no exception.  I really scrambled last minute on this card but managed to get it done in time.  I was so stressed, I actually considered going to the card store and just buying one!!!  Glad I didn’t.

Here’s what I came up with:

I cut some 2” squares to resemble apps and then made one birthday app square (the yellow one with the hat).  The “18” is suppose to be the calendar app and the 18th was Mark’s birthday.  I know the “F” for the Facebook app isn’t the right font…trust me, I tried to find it!

Really liked the way this turned out and the birthday day boy enjoyed it as well.  Hurray for creations under the pressure!

I’ve been taking a social media class lately so I’ve had apps on the mind so this is a bit of a shout out to the class.  I can’t believe I forgot the Twitter app though!  That’s one of the easier ones to make!
