Conversation Cards

I had made these Conversation Cards for the young women at my church to be able to take home to their families to use around the dinner table. Some people had seen it on my personal blog and wondered if they could get copies. So here they are. They were created as 4x6 images, so you can take them to wherever you go to get regular pictures developed (I recommend choosing either a lustre or matte finish and NOT the glossy because with glossy people's fingerprints will get on them).

When I created these, I hadn't planned on posting them ever on the internet so I didn't really pay attention to whose kits I was using. So this is my best shot to giving credit to the designers:

Age, Grow Up & Good Things cards:
Gina Cabrera - Compassion

Best Friend, Childhood Memories, & Person Across Table cards:
Rhonna Farrer – April Free Pea kit

Christmas Memory & Christmas Want cards:
Shabby Princess – Seasonal Sampler (holiday)

Embarrassing & Happy Face cards
Anne Langpap – Two Peas July freebie

Birthdate & Birthday Memory cards:
MaryAnn Wise – Two Peas Party Hat

Favorite Color card:
Amy Tanabe – Candyland kit

Count Backwards & Favorite Movie cards:
Summer Driggs – Moments

Favorite Meal card:
Shabby Princess – Dinner Party

Good, Happy & Home cards:
Rhonna Farrer – Two Peas in a Bucket August Freebie

Favorite Hobby, Favorite Season & Name Choice cards:

Travel & Vacation cards:
Rhonna Farrer – Two Peas in a Bucket Travel kit

Mom card:

Sports card:
Tia Bennet – Two Peas Football kit

Million Dollars card:

Favorite Animal card:

Funniest Face card:

Winter card:

the vintage frame used a few times:

The cards I could not find the designers to give credit for: Hero, Scripture Story, Joke, Pet Peeve, School, Summer, Weather (however the pumpkin & snowman in the weather card were created by myself).

These are just beautiful. I don't have a YW calling but I'll store them away on my hard drive. :)

They could make for a fun activity at a family reunion or something...

I finally got around to printing these out and they are even more gorgeous on photo paper!! Thank you so much, I can't wait to use these in my mommy groups.

Brenda said...

These are so cool! I rarely print 4x6s anymore, since I digi-scrap and then print 12x12s. I've been wondering what I'll do with the 50 free prints I have from Costco. Now I know!

Thanks so much for sharing your hard work with us.

These are fantastic. I will use them with my chronically mentally ill patients.... it will be a good group. Thanks.

Tami said...

Thank you so much! I am YW pres in a branch in China. We have 15 girls, speaking English, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. (Next year we'll add a girl who's Spanish speaking, though her English is excellent.) Because of this language challenge we are always looking for simple ways to get the girls to communicate with each other. Thank you for providing us with a beautiful way to do so. You will bless our lives. Thank you!

My personal blog: www.christensenland.blogspot.com
We are thinking of starting a branch blog!

Summer, thank you for all your time for these, I love them. Do you have any cards that only have the backgrounds without any text? I'm loooking for some that I can add my own text..


TheKeilShpeel said...

So I just came across this from I think ooopsie Daisy's blog and I was wondering if there are still available. I am having a hard time getting onto 4shared but wouldn't doubt if these are long gone.
Didn't know if I could still get these though. They would be perfect for an upcoming quarterly meeting we are having.


K said...

We are in charge of our family reunion this year... love this idea! Would it be possible to get the backgrounds without words to add more varied questions for a larger group?? Thank you! kfranw@gmail.com

Rachel said...

I too have found so many uses for these. Thank you so much! I was also wondering if you might have a file with just the backgrounds so we can add our own text to them? Thanks again!

Darlene said...

Thank you so much for sharing these. I'm an older single adult and as bad as the kids for not knowing how to make small talk with people I don't know. These will help!

Helen said...

thanks for all your lovely papers !!

Debbi said...

I know this is an old post, but I have to say, I've been following your blog for so long and have had these bookmarked (and now pinned) forever..just waiting for the perfect time to make them.

We had our Super Saturday this past weekend and we totally used them. They were such a hit and everyone loved them! Thanks SO much!

I love these! Thank you for sharing your talent with the world. You are so selfless for doing this! I am planning on giving these to my friend who is in the hospital and probably bored so she can ask the nurses some random stuff. :) Thank you!

bonecadeporcelana said...

I was so excited to find these, but I wasn't able to get the download to work. The site says possible reasons may be that the link is invalid or that the file may have been deleted. If either is the case, would I be able to get the file from you another way? Thanks!
