New Pocket Card for You

Check out this awesome Fun Fold Card I received from my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and friend Sue Thomas. This pocket card layout is new to me. I love it, and would like to share it with others too.

In this video replay below of my February 26th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make this style of fun fold card by CASEing the lovely card above that Sue sent me. I chose to use the same Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite she did. You'll see, however, that while we both used many of the same products with the same card layout, our cards are each unique and different. I hope you enjoy watching this video and find it inspiring and helpful in creating beautiful cards of your own.

Pocket cards are always fun to make and are a fun surprise for those who are lucky enough to receive one.

I love all of the gorgeous coordinating images and colors of the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

The Seaside Shells and Opal Rounds are just the right embellishments for the finishing touches on this pocket fold card and coordinating envelope.

Cute & Functional Mini Backpack

Have I got an DARLING 3D project for you! I'm going to show you how to make a Mini Backpack in this Facebook Live Video Replay. It's oh, so cute, functional, and fun to make. This  Mini Backpack can be used for so many occasions - graduations, teacher appreciation day, embarking on a trip or new adventure, birthdays, Father's Day, and more. I'm going to use the Mini Backpack use see in my video demonstration gift for my niece. Avery is graduating high school this month and will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall. I used OSU colors and will fill the main section of the backpack with various gift cards that I know a college student will enjoy. I'll put some mini sticky note pads in the front pocket. Then, I'll put the Mini Backpack in a clear cellophane bag and tie it up with a pretty bow and handmade tag. I think Avery will love the handmade touch I put on her graduation gift.

 

This is the Mini Backpack I received from my friend and SU! team member Tracy Dahling that inspired me to make my own Mini Backpacks for graduation gifts. Tracy had a package of flower shaped sticky notes & a chapstick in her backpack and chocolate mints in the front pocket.

Fine Art Floral Birthday Card

Happy Free Friday Download Day! I hope you've had a happy, healthy, and productive week! Today's card features one of my favorite suites ever - Fine Art Gallery. This card was so fun to make I couldn't wait to share it. I love working with the Fine Art Designer Acetate and the way it compliments the beautiful Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. If you haven't worked with these two designer papers, I highly suggest you put them on your next order. You will love the colorful and artistic floral impressions and patterns.

Embossing Folder Storage Made Easy!

If you're like me, you are continually looking for new ways to organize your craft supplies so that they all have a place and that they are easily accessible thus making our crafting experience more fun and more efficient. 

I made the storage boxes below to house my Embossing Folders. Since we have 3 basic sizes of Embossing Folders, I made 3 different sizes of the boxes. They are all the same height but vary in width.

Watch my video for a complete demonstration of making all 3 sizes of my storage boxes. Then consider how you'd use these to organize your craft room. You might think of other uses for them both in and out of your craft room.

Free Tutorial with Flowering Cactus Purchase

I love that Stampin' Up! is an expert on coordination - both color coordination and product coordination and theme coordination. It's what first made me fall in love with stamping and all things Stampin' Up!. AND it makes creating so much easier and much more fun. The Flowering Cactus Product Medley is a wonderful collection of coordinating colors, images & sentiments, and high quality products all centered around a Flowering Cactus theme. 

I had no idea when I was first drawn to the Flowering Cactus Medley, that cactus is such a common theme right now. Take a look at some home decor items I found at Ikea and Dollar Tree. Seeing the same themes Stampin' Up! is using when I venture out of my Stampin' Peace Studio tells me that I can count on Stampin' Up! to be up-to-date with the latest trends in not only crafting, but in home decor and fashion too. What and how we craft is often a reflection of how we choose to create in our "adult" life including perhaps, how we decorate and what we wear and do. How cool is that!

Black & White with a Pop of Color

I love black and white cards. I love them even more with a "pop of color". The True Love Designer Series Paper lends itself to these types of cards so easily. Use the True Love DSP as is but add color with bits of card stock, ribbon, and/or embellishments. I used Just Jade for my pops of color on the following 6 cards. These are so easy to make as they all use the same dimensions - making it easy to make lots of great cards fast to use now or build up your stash for later use. 

Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

I love layering punched shapes to add more interest to cards and make my sentiments stand out.
Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

Matte Black Dots are a perfect embellishment for these black & white cards with a pops of Just Jade color.
Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Basic Black Card Base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock for inside card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • DSP = Cut 4" x 6" then cut 3/4" off one end. Both the 4" x 5 1/4" and 4" x 3/4" pieces will be used on your card front.
  • Just Jade card stock (or color of your choice) = 4" x 1"
