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.

To me, this fun fold card is like a sweet surprise from the usual cards we send. It's sure to bring a smile to its recipient.

As you can see by the 3 pairs of cards I made shown below, it's easy to make one-of-a-kind cards by switching out Designer Series Paper patterns, embellishment placements, etc. A great tip for when you want to make a lot of cards but don't want them all exactly the same.

Happy Birthday from Minnie Mouse

Punch Art is so fun. I'm always in awe of those crafters who can look at a punch and see something completely different than the obvious. Think of the Tulip Punch as the head of a reindeer with antlers from the Sprig Punch. This is just 1 very simple example of Punch Art. Many Punch Artist work is very elaborate with them thinking WAY out of the box with their ordinary shape punches. I'm not in that league, but am certainly intrigued and learning to look at my punches differently.

Tulip Builder Punch & Sprig Punch by Stampin' Up!

Here is another simple but Oh, So Cute, example of Punch Art. You can use circle punches and dies to create Mickey and Minnie silhouettes. Add a die cut bow tie from the Suit & Tie Dies and you have Minnie Mouse's bow!

This is one punch art we ALL can do and is sure to bring smiles to Disney fans from 1 to 101. Click on the following link to download a Free Project Sheet to make this card. Download Project Sheet - Minnie Mouse Birthday Card

Easiest way to use Gilded Leafing

Gilded Leafing can add a dramatic effect to your cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. There are several different ways to use it from using it with Heat & Stick Powder and Heat Tool to a variety of adhesives. This card shows one of the simplest ways to use Gilded Leafing as an accent or embellishment. Simply lay a strip of Tear & Tape onto card stock where you want to add Gilded Leafing. Remove backing and press down into Gilded Leafing. Remove excess with small brush, sponge, or your finger tip.

To make this card, be sure to download my Free Project Sheet.

Download Project Sheet - Art Gallery Card in Merry Merlot 

Art Gallery Stamp Set & Gilded Leafing by Stampin' Up!

TIP: Gilded Leafing is VERY light & airy. I HIGHLY suggest that you pour the Gilded Leafing from its original jar into a larger plastic container with a lid. The container should be large enough to press your card stock down into.

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.

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.
