Personal Stash Club Project Cards (Word doc.) 

Personal Stash Club Project Cards (PDF) 

These are great to fill out and slip into a kit you make up yourself with yarn and goodies when you don't want to put a book from your library in the package. :o)  Each card has space for the pattern name, book, and page number; the Word document is two pages long; when printed on both sides of a sheet, it creates cards with info on one side and a yarn photo on the other.  Feel free to customize these however you like. :o)  These cards are not copyrighted, so use them however you like!
