Let’s get scary!

Halloween is coming up fast!

Hey Guys,

Halloween is coming up fast, Let’s get scary or NOT! Basically, I LOVE Halloween, especially when I am scrapbooking! As you know, Halloween comes up every year and when your kids are young you take a lot of pictures when they go out to Trick or Treat. Therefore, you have all the pictures to put in a scrapbook every year, and I think that each page for every year needs to be different. Hence, the reason why I love Halloween, I have to get really creative with my pages. Subsequently, I felt the need to be creative with my cards that I made for my YouTube video today! Hopefully you will love them as much as I do!

A Fancy Fold balcony Card….What!?

Who doesn’t love a New Fancy Fold?!

Hey Guys!!

First off, I want to say how much I LOVE Fancy Folds, today I am sharing a Balcony Card…..What!? Yes, I have never heard about it either, so I am sharing with you how to make one by doing my weekly video that you can watch. Also, who doesn’t love a new fancy fold?! Second I saw this fold on Pinterest, but have never heard about it, have you?

Consequently, after looking at Pinterest, I started making it and here is what I made:

Front of the Balcony Card
I LOVE Fancy Folds, today I am sharing a A Balcony Card…..What!?

In addition to Fancy Folds, I also like techniques! As a result of that, I am showing you my 2nd card that I did on my video using the same set Hey, Chick! and Hey Birthday Chick. In this case, I used the technique where you emboss with a folder, the entire card front, layers and all (I placed ‘Happy Birthday’ several times down one side, and embossed that too!), it’s a very cool technique!

Who doesn’t love a Technique!?

Generally I like to keep to one stamp set for my videos, but this time the two: Hey Chick! and Hey Birthday Chick work so well together, I HAD to use them both! Subsequently, you will need to buy Hey Chick asap, since it won’t be available after June! And, doing a Balcony card….what!?, yes a Balcony card was a must for me, I hope you like it as much as I do!

As a rule, here are the specifics for both cards:

  • Hey, Chick Bundle
  • Hey Birthday Chick Bundle

  • Crumb Cake (to sponge over fence/barn)
  • Early Espresso

  • Daffodil Delight
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Calypso Coral

Paper:

Card 1

  • Early Espresso: 6″ sq (for the video I made it 5 1/2″ x 6″), 7″ x 1 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″, 3 1/2″, 6 1/2, 5″ x 2 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 4 1/2″, 1 1/8″ x 2 1/2″ (trim after), scraps for Happy Birthday
  • Very Vanilla 5 7/8″ sq x 3 (for the video it is: 2 7/8″ x 5 3/8″ 3 times), scrap for sentiment/ chickens

First off, I wanted to tell you that I also used, along with the Donkey, the dies from the Bundle Ride the Range. I will be using this bundle for my next YouTube Live on Thursday January 14th! I hope you can join me. Also, I used some Free Designer Series Paper that comes in the Sale-a-Bration catalog as a bundle itself called Berry Blessings Stamp set + Berry Delightful Stamp set.

Secondly, as usual I am providing all the details needed to make BOTH projects:

  • Paper:
  • Basic Black: 12″ x 5 1/2″ (base), 5 1/2″ x 2 18″ (for panels) For Base you will lay it on your cutter/trimmer portrait and place the edge along the 3/4″ line and cut from the 1″ to 5″, pick up cutter and cut from 7″ to 11″, repeat for other side. Then place on trimmer Landscape and you will SCORE only on the outside edge (between the cut and edge), score on 1″, 5″, 7″ & 11″. Keep in Landscape and score ALL THE WAY across on 2″, 4″ 8″ & 10″. You will fold them on the outside edges mountain, valley, mountain valley (this is the same on both sides working towards the middle) Do both top and bottom. Inside flap gets folded mountain, valley, valley, mountain.

For any purchase of $35 or more you will receive from me the class packet for the class I am detailing today, which will include all the cardstock, die cuts (not the sentiments since that is not allowed per SU!) but I can send you the one die cut for the sentiment that the donkey is kicking since that is stamped with the stamp set and not the Many Messages. Also, you will get the Rhinestones and I will pre cut/score for the main card and die cut the circle for the gift card! The one thing I can not do is stamp anything.

Who’s that Doggy in the Window!

Hey Guys,

To begin with, I saw a card on Pinterest that had this fold, which is called a Bay Window. But of course, I had to change it up, so I made one with dogs from Playful Pets that I call “Who’s the doggy in the window”!? By the way, the dog that looks like a Yorkie looks like my puppy and he is always looking out the window waiting for us to come home! By the way, I did a video showing how to make this card, you can catch it here. If you love animals, I have another card using this same set but with cats, you can see it here!

First off, this card is not the regular size that I make. But, it has too much in it to make it smaller. Because of this, I decided to keep it big, so the size is 5 3/4″ x 8 1/4″. Once you see it, you’ll agree with me that the size NEEDS to be big! 🙂

Technique called Bay Window: Who’s that Doggy in the window!?
Aren’t those the cutest doggies in the window!?

Of course, I had to find a sentiment that went with my best friend loving me, so I am using the Beauty Abounds stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Subsequently it says “A friend is someone who chooses you….out of a whole world of people” And who doesn’t love you more than a dog, so it’s perfect for a friend card!

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Beauty Abounds

Inks:
Memento Black

Paper:
Real Red 5 3/4″ x 81/4″ (x2) ONE is scored at 1/2″, 3 1/2″ turn card and score again at 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ , 2 1/2″ sq (x 4)
Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP) 2 7/8″ x 5 5/8″ (x2), 1 3/16″ x 5 5/8″, 4 1/8″ x 5 5/8″, 3 3/8″ x 5 5/8″
Black 3 1/8″ x 4 3/8″ , 1 1/8″ x 2 1/2″
Whisper White 2 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ (x2)

Misc:
Stitched Rectangle Dies

Gang’s All Meer Double Slider Easel Card

Hey Guys,

I’m sure that you have seen around the Double Slider Easel Cards, I saw them too, and tried my hand at it! Using The Gang’s All Meer Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! was a no brainer for me. They are so stinkin’ cute! Plus, the sentiment says “Happy Birthday to a STAND-UP friend”, thought it would be perfect to have a stand up card! LOL

Also I used the SU! set Mountain Air, because I thought they would make a great backdrop for those adorable MeerKats! The Belly band is stamped with the cactus and colored with Blends. I tried so hard to find a fitting Designer Series Paper (DSP) that would fit with these cuties, but alas I couldn’t! So, what is a crafter to do? Make their own DSP! 🙂

Here is my card, you’ll see a few pics since I want to show you all the angles:

This can open fuller, the sentiment is on the pull out. Can you see that this is open on it’s own?
sideways view
Inside

Cute right? I like it, depending on what everyone says at my classes is whether or not we make this in a class. It’s a little over the top, meaning it takes some time to get all the pieces together and put in the right place. BUT, it was super fun once I got the gist of it! Thanks go to Frenchie for her video! I may make a video if you would like to see it, just let me know!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
The Gang’s All Meer
Mountain Air

Inks:
Smoky Slate (mountains)
Old Olive (trees and cactus/lizard)
Early Espresso (meerkats)
Soft Suede (behind Meerkats and cactus on belly band)
Balmy Blue (sky)
Blends: Crumb Cake combo, Old Olive light, Mango Melody combo

Paper:
Whisper White thick 4 1/4″ x 11″
Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, 3″ x 4″, 1 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ for banner & for Extra banner if you make a full card: 1″ x 9 1/2″
[2 3/4″ x 1″ (scored @ 1/2″ each end), 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″, 1 1/2″ x 1/2″ scored @ 1/2″ & 1″…..for mechanisms]
Balmy Blue 4″ x 5 1/4″
