Fun Fold Card Using Scrap Paper


I love a good fun fold. This is no exception. Do not be intimidated even beginner cardmakers can handle this one. I used up some scrap paper/cardstock along with other ephemera. So love I am using the stash. What are you making today?

See the video for this project here.

Time fo a Bit of Catch Up

 Ok in this past I am catching you up with some cards I made back in December. Better late than never. The watercolor/rub on the patterned paper I shared in the last video/post is put to good use here. A lot of great Dollar Tree items are used on these cards. Spellbinders Card Club Kit items are als used quite a bit. Hope you enjoy them. Yes you can watch the video if you wish as well which is found here.

Making my own Patterned Paper- Watercolor and Rub ons

 I took simple shapes to make a very simple watercolor background. Then thanks to some Dollar Tree rub ons I was able to transform those into patterned paper. To see the cards I make with this paper watch Wednesday's video. The final cards are there. Everyone can do this even beginners. So pull out your paints and those rub ons. The video for making this patterned paper is found here.

Here is one of the cards I made from the paper I created:

Valentine Arrows Using Dollar tree Products


So for my Valentine's cards, this year I decided I wanted a dimensional arrow of love element. Here is what I came up with. The paper straws I had on hand, the heart table scatter, and crepe paper I picked up at Dollar Tree. I hope this inspires you. I post the final card here, once they are completed if you want to check it out. There is a video on how I made these. Just head here.

A Few Cards

 Thought I would share some of these cards. Just me playing around with things to see what I can make. No video...just a lot of creative fun. A couple of the backgrounds were made using a gel plate. Whatever you do take some time to do what makes you happy. For me, it's cards. I love making pretty things.
