Corner Pop Up Card Valentines Day Card

Fancy Fold pop up card. I made one of these for Easter last year so I decided to make a Valentines Day Card.
Very Easy Card to create just using an 8" x 8" piece of heavy card stock.
The Designer paper is from BoBunny's Charmed Collection.
It was so pretty on its own that I hated to over decorate it.
I used the new stamp and die set from Stampin' Up called Meant to Be.
It is a beautiful set with wonderful stamped images and dies. I used the decorative
heart for the inside and stamped a little sentiment in the middle of the heart.
On the front, I used the "scattered" hearts.
I made a belly band measuring at 1" x 9" and used the same stamp set.
The dies I've had for some time so I'm not sure where I found those.


Trifold (shutter) Valentines card

My challenge this year is to make as many Fancy Fun Fold Cards as I can.
Starting off the year with a trifold (shutter) Valentines card.
It is a variation of the one I made a year ago.
Making the “u” shaped panels was challenging but with practice I got it.
I cased this idea from Pinterest.
I used My Mind's Eyes Designer Paper Pad called "Bliss".
The flowers were die cut from one of the sheets from the same paper pack.
The flower die came from Crafters Companion Flower Die.
Sentiment came from Stampin' Up Meant to Be Stamp Set.

Notepad with Pen Holder

For the start of 2019, I have been adding items to my store. I decided on notepads with a pen holder.
They make such a great gift idea and I make mine with a lot of personality.
Each one has something unique about them.
The first one is using up some retired Stampin Up Carried Away Paper and My Favorite Things
Up In the Air Hot Air Balloon.
What fun colors that would brighten anyone's day.
I can see this notepad given to someone that is retiring, going on a trip, or vacation.
I used Stampin Up Night of Navy cardstock for the base.

Z-Fold Christmas Card

I have really been enjoying Stampin' Ups Ready for Christmas set. It came out in their Holiday Catalog in 2017 and it was something I had to have. This set really says everything about Christmas.
It features a staircase, a Christmas Tree and a cute Wiener Dog. My brother and sister-in-law have two Wiener dogs so I knew I had to make them a card with two Wiener dogs.
Here is the card I made for my brother and sister-in-law in 2017:
I just love creating Christmas living room scenes that I did more of these in 2017 and also
in 2018.

Here are the living rooms I created so far in 2018:
I just love how you can create each scene to make it unique to the person you are giving it to.
The red wall paper living room is for a friend at church who has a gray cat, the blue card is for the pastor of my church whose family loves musical instruments and the third one is for another friend at church who owns many cats and she told me how she loves to go all out for Christmas.
Most of the products you see in these cards are from Stampin' Up and a few Lawn Fawn from their Critter Concert Stamp and Die set.

Tea Party Birthday Card

I've wanted to create a Step card for sometime, so when Les needed a "tea" card for a coworker, I did a grown up version of a tea party. This was a Pinterest inspired idea.
Used MFT dies and the card stock paper is from Michael's.

Z-Fold Birthday Girl Card

When a friend from church requested a tea party card, for a special young lady, I didn't turn to Pinterest, I turned to Google. I had an idea of where I wanted to go with the idea but Googling girls tea parties inspired me even more. This little girl's tea party wasn't complete until I added a bunch of stuffed animals. I decided to go with a Z-Fold card so I can have all the stuffed animals drinking tea and eating desserts.

I used a lot of Stampin' Up products to create this card.

Paper Pumpkin Challenge

My achievement for 2018 was when I entered and won the Paper Pumpkin contest with this card. You were only allowed to use left overs from Paper Pumpkin past kits along with Stampin Up products. I decided to create a grocery store filled with party Watermelons to celebrate.
