I’m home and I’ve got a great new fancy fold for you, that’s pretty AND easy! Above all, I love new folds and especially love them when they aren’t hard! Thus, when I saw this fold done by Lavonne S. I had to give it a try! This is the same fold as doing a 3 step card, but with making the folds go a different way you have a brand new Fancy Fold! Earlier today I did my Live on my YouTube channel where I showed you how to make these cards, I hope you join me and if you join while I’m live you can be in the drawing to have one of these cards mailed to you!
Besides doing fancy fold cards I love cutesy cards and the Counting Sheep stamp set fits that bill perfectly! Plus, this stamp set is one you can get for FREE! Yes, you heard that right this stamp set is a Sale-a-Bration (SAB) set and when you buy something for $50 you can pick Counting Sheep as your free set. Of course that is only if you purchase before the end of September! For this reason, you can buy the bundle for the Peaceful Cabin! Indeed, this bundle you can get for $54 and that will let you pick out a free SAB item! Basically that is a ‘Win-Win’!!
As always below is my list of supplies needed for both cards, there is also picture images below my name that you can click on to be taken straight to my OnLine Store!
Peaceful Cabin Bundle
Basic Black 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, see picture above for scoring and cutting
Peaceful Place Designer 3 1/4″ x 3 3/8″, 3/4″ x 3″ (x2)
Basic White 3 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, 3/4″ x 5 3/8″, scraps for stamping cabin twice
Old Olive 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″

Basic White 3 3/4″ x 5″ (x2), scraps for sheep/party hat
Scraps for balloons/sun/cloud: Pumpkin Pie, Soft Succulent, Mango Melody, Magenta Madness, Old Olive, Mango Melody, Balmy Blue

On the positive side I’ve shown you two awesome cards! On the negative side I am done with this post! LOL Subsequently I hope you have enjoyed it! Again, you can catch me on my YouTube channel every Thursday at 4:00 eastern where I will have a Live class for you!

Yesterday I posted a Live YouTube video doing a Fancy Fold using the Darling Donkey stamp set! You can get this set FREE with a $50 purchase! Love, Love, Love this set!! I have been using it a lot ’cause I love it so much! If you missed my last Live you can catch it here! Also, I did a Blog post and that can be found here!
Of course I did a SECOND card for my Mini Class! And I also used the Free Donkey set!
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:
Granny Apple Green
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.
Granny Apple Green: 3 7/8″ sq. (back panel), 8″ x 3 7/8″ for middle scene, 5/8″ x 7/8″ (x8) for bottom and top small edges, 4 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ (for gift card)
Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper: cut 4″ x 5 3/8″ (turn and cut @ 2″ in half so they will line up), 4″ x 5 3/8″ for front panels when card is closed. 5/8″ x 1 7/8″ for adding to the tip and bottom small panels. And 4 1/4″ x 2″ for envelope flap
Memories & More Cards & Envelopes: I used a gift card/Envelope for small Donkey card.
White: 4″ x 3″ inside the Gift card
Open Range Dies
Many Messages Dies
Layering Circle Dies
Stitched Shapes Dies (for sentiment donkey is kicking)
As you already know if you follow me and my blog, all the supplies will be listed below, click on any of the pictures and you will be taken to my OnLine Store! 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.
BUT the great thing is it’s Sale-a-Bration now and you can get MORE than you would normally! Spend $50 and you can pick out that CUTE Darling Donkey set for FREE! This is while supplies last, so don’t wait! Furthermore, you will get the 16 project ideas in a PDF that has step by step instructions and pictures….hint, my Home decor item is what I made!! So you will have the measurements for that too!
Thank you for all your support! I so appreciate you joining me on my Live classes and for those who can’t watch live I appreciate you watching it later!
If you are in need of a catalog, let me know and I will get one right out to you!

A California Girl living in North Carolina Product List
I have been invited by Frances Wagner to participate in a Monday Creative Blog Hop! I’m very excited to be asked and I have been creating a bunch of cards for a Class where we get to participate in Sale-a-Bration for one more month!!
We will order in March $50.00 worth of product and then pick out a SAB item for free, then the class will be free!
I plan on Three cards at this event and then I will have a Sale-a-Bration Celebration! What is that you ask? Well, for those who have received 2-3 SAB items from purchasing through me they get a class for FREE where we will make 5 cards, with door prizes and munchies and LOTS of goodies (presents?) for those who are participating!
This Stampin’ Up! handmade card below uses the stamp set Butterfly Basics, I just HAD to make it once I saw it online, it was made by Erica Logtenberg, the only thing I changed from her absolutely GORGEOUS card was where I put my pearls! No need in changing a brilliant card! Make sure you enlarge the picture so you can see how pretty it really is!
The second card I want to show you is one made from Adventure Awaits! This SU! card is a great card for a Man! I used the Dots and Stripes Decorative Masks and the Aquamarine Chalk Pad to make these wonderful stripes! It is a fast and easy card! Did you know that you can stamp with Chalk ink and then emboss it with Gold Embossing Powder? I thought I would try it and it worked great! That way you have less you need to buy to make this Manly card! I also used Champagne Glitter Paper and cut banner ends to make the main image Pop.
For my last card today, I wanted to show you this really pretty card made using the Artisan Embellishment Kit. It was fun using the rose piece inside as a mask to sponge my color – Rose Red over my ‘mask’ and then I embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder! Wow is it shiny! And you just have to touch it, it is a fun card to look at and texturally (is that a word?!) :-/ a card that once you give it away the person will want to touch it and ask how you did that!!
The cute little Bee is from the Stamp set from SU! ( I LOVE SU! can you tell?) named Baby Bumblebee. Once I saw this set I just HAD to have it! I stamped him on So Saffron cardstock using a juicy StazOn pad (I keep it juicy so I can emboss it using clear EP, I LOVE embossing……it’s like magic every time and you won’t get tired of doing it!) I did have to cut out the bumblebee, that was the hardest part of this card!! I used a little heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers which I colored Red with our Blender pens! This bee is just so stinkin’ cute!
I also used the stamp set Hello Life for the Sentiment on the bottom of the card.
I hope you have enjoyed my part of the blog hop!! I have been asked to answer some questions, so I will do that before I leave and have you continue your journey!
* What are you working on?
I am constantly working on my next class. I have a few that I do out of my home in NC, and I also have classes at the Senior Center in my town. I also have classes at my local Parks and Recreation. I am waiting for the ok to go through classes to teach at my local Battered Womens Shelter! I’m very excited to do this, as I was in their shoes a LONG time ago before I met my husband who spoils me MORE than I would ever have expected! We’ve been married for 26 wonderful years and have 5 kids and 3 grandkids!
* How does your work differ from others in your genre?
I love to create my own cards, but love to see something from Pinterest and recreate it using Stampin’ Up! product, or if they used SU! already then I usually change it up just a bit to put my stamp on it! Pun not intended!
* Why do you create what you do?
Before I started stamping, my sister was always doing these really creative things, like making china Christmas Tree Ornaments, or painting china dolls. I thought that I was not granted the gene of artistry. Then I went to my first SU! party, I made a beautiful card, and then couldn’t mail it out because it was so pretty! In my classes, I try to have all the dimensions written down so my friends/clients can recreate what we are making! I REALLY love it when I see the smile on someone’s face who also thought they weren’t artistic. And the first class they come to they are changing up one of my cards to fit them! That tells me that I am doing my job and showing them that they can do this too!!
* How does your creative process work?
That’s a hard one! It’s really funny that I can look at pretty much anything and think of using a part of what I see on a card! I can see some colors that I like and then think of what SU! colors will match…..then I just need to figure out what stamp to use and then I am almost done! SU! makes it really easy to make projects, all their goodies coordinate with each other! I can also use colors from a certain color family and that will make sure that the colors will go together. Pinterest helps get my juices flowing and so does the other demonstrators who put their designs on Stampin’ Connection where us demo’s can go and see what others have made using a specific stamp set.
Thanks again for stopping by!! Come back again!
Here are the other people who have posted to this blog hop:
I just got back from Stampin’ Up’s! Leadership and they had this stamp set EVERYWHERE! Luckily I had already earned it (it’s a Sale-A-Bration stamp set or SAB, which I got FREE for purchasing $50.00), so I decided to come up with my own card!!
I didn’t CASE anyone!! I love when my creative juices are flowing! I used the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set (139134) along with ‘Crazy about You’ (137137), which is SO versatile, you can use it on just about EVERY card!!
I am always saying these words “Just Sayin'” so this stamp is PERFECT for me! I also used the Daffodil Delight (130998) and Old Olive (130999) Blendabilities (Which you can get for FREE!!) and if you come to my class I will walk you through how to shade this wonderful stamp set!! I also used the Thinlits “Hello You” (137363).
AND right now until June 2nd you get the BUNDLE that has the ‘Hello You’ thinlits and the Stamp set ‘Crazy about You’ #139325 (clear) Photopolymer #138873 so you save 15%!! IF you buy this bundle in the clear or Wood #139324, You can get the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set that is used in this card for FREE because it is a SAB set! If you purchase the Photopolymer, which I LOVE, you will need to add another item to your order to get the FREE ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set, you need $50 in US.
I used the Daffodil Delight ribbon #125583, the Specialty Designer Series Paper ‘Birthday Bash’ #137783 and some dimensionals #104430 which will give you MORE than enough to get ‘A Happy Thing!
So, are you ready to see the handmade card?
You will need to zoom in to see what I used at the bottom of the stamped image, I ruffled some plastic from a clear envelope! THAT was really fun to do!
I hope you like my SU! handmade card!!
