Posted by on Oct 12, 2017 in Creative Folds, Other

Today’s share created with the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper is a CASE from Linda Bauwin with a few additions.  The first photo shows the card closed, the second card shows the first open position.  To fully open card, you lift the Trick or Treat layer and open it to the left. I will keep the last step to open this card a surprise, however, if you’d like to learn how to make this fun fold, plan now to attend my Creative Folds Class on October 30.  There are more details about this class on my calendar. Thanks for visiting today.  Happy crafting!...

Musical Season Extended Fold

Posted by on Sep 26, 2017 in Big Shot, Christmas, Creative Folds, Holiday

Today’s Extended Fold card was created with the Musical Season Bundle.  The Stitched Shapes (oval die) provided a nice background for the French Horn. This creative fold gives additional space to add extra elements.  The instruments on the centre panel are stamped with Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the coordinating framelit.  The border on the right side of the card was created with two stamps–of course, you need the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images but it is so perfect!  You can’t even tell it’s two stamps. Thirty one stampers created this card at the Holiday Escape & Create Retreat last week-end!  Out craft room was filled with excitement as everyone completed 20+ projects.  In addition, the prize patrol bell rang numerous times and the retreat bags could not contain all! I’ll be sharing more about this retreat in my next post!  Hope you can come back and take a look!  The next Holiday Escape & Create Retreat is confirmed for September 21-23, 2018 and eager stampers who attend this year, are planning to return. Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Colorful Season Extended Fold

Posted by on Jul 1, 2017 in Birthday, Creative Folds

This gorgeous extended fold card was created with the Colorful Season stamp set and the Marbled Background stamp set.  The Marbled Background looks like the shaving cream technique and is so easy to use and create backgrounds in a flash.  Colorful Season is an amazing stamp set that can be used for all seasons and numerous occasions.  I left this inside of this card blank so I can decide on the occasion when I need the card. This creative fold was inspired by Linda Bauwin.  I made my Thailand swap card using this fold so you’ll be sure to want to see that one as well.  I will be posting that card from Thailand after our swap. In tomorrow’s post, I will be sharing the July promotions, which I’m sure you won’t want to miss!  Thanks for visiting today!  See you...

Joy Fold

Posted by on Jun 28, 2017 in Creative Folds, Other

This Joy Fold card was one of two Creative Folds I shared with stampers this month.  Sharing Sweet Thoughts, the 2017-18 Ronald McDonald stamp is featured on this card.  Dapper Denim Color Theory DSP, Layered Circle Framelits, a little coloring and a few embellishments, made this lovely card come together.  The circle of hearts on the bottom left corner of this card are raised with dimensionals so the corner of the Joy Fold tucks underneath. Here’s a view of the inside.  The right flap could also have a layer of Whisper White with room to add more images or maybe a nice poem. The lady bugs are so adorable and the strawberries, when colored with Stamp ‘n Write markers really come alive! July is just around the corner, and I’m excited to share with new some amazing news!  First of all, as last year, for all purchases in July, you may earn coupons for free product in August.  I’ll be sharing more details about this promo very soon!  And finally, the BEST news is an incredible promotion for anyone wishing to join the Stampin’ Up family!  The special is the best I have ever seen in all the years I’ve been a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator–the deal is even better than during Sale-a-bration, which I always thought was a great deal! Come back tomorrow for more details on both of these upcoming promotions!  I am so excited!   Thanks for visiting...

Pop-Out Butterfly Birthday!

Posted by on Apr 24, 2017 in Birthday, Creative Folds, Retiring

Today’s share is one of two Creative Folds that stampers will be learning how to make today at my Creative Folds Class.  This creative fold was shared by Linda Bauwin, although the design is my own. I had a lot of fun designing this card and surely am planning to make more!  When you remove the belly band, and open this gate fold card, the inside of the card pops out!  It is beautiful! Did you know that Watermelon Wonder (2015-2017 In Color) and also the Papillon Potpourri stamp set used to create this card are retiring?  All retiring items are only while supplies last so if these are on your wish list, be sure to order soon to avoid disappointment.  Many items are already depleted so check your list today!
