We had a wonderful workshop last night 7/28/15 at my house where we made 3 fun folded cards for $5. Here are some pictures of the fun we had and the projects we made.
For those who would like to make one of these fun fold cards here are the specs.
Start with a piece of cardstock cut to 8 x 5 1/2 inches. Score the paper at the 2, 3, 5, and 6 marks. To achieve the folded look its a fold up, down, down, and up across the score lines.
For the side panels:
Cut your designer series paper with the pattern of your choice
to 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches.
For the solid paper providing the backing border cut a piece 1 7/8 x 5 3/8 .
The side strip is just a one inch wide scrap. The center shapes were cut using the Labels collection framelits.
The tree card used the Lovely as a tree stamp set and old olive and early espresso paper.
The flower card used the Indescribable Gift stamp set blushing bride and rich razzleberry paper.
The goose card used the wetlands stamp set and crumb cake and early espresso paper.
All cards were colored by markers by hand. Here are a few others I made. Enjoy.
It’s that time of year the students graduate from school. In fact my little sister graduated college this month as well. Congrats Janette! I made a lovely graduation card for her, in the box card style using scrapbook stickers. I think it turned out great. I’ve already sold two more identical ones. This one is going for $10 a piece if you are interested in one.I have been making some other fun graduation cards featuring the Stampin Up punch owl and graduation hat stickers. These are available for sale for $8 a piece.
Adventurous Guy Greetings
Here is a recent trio of cards we made at my last workshop. The theme was masculine cards. I featured using the Adventure Bound designer series paper and the guy greetings stamp set. Both are available in Stampin Up’s occasions catalog here: http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ItemList.aspx?categoryid=2027
With the huge popularity of Despicable Me, I have been seeing minions everywhere. My nugget purses were a huge hit at my last show so I decided to make some minions with the Hershey nuggets. I think they turned out great and for only $1 a piece I hope they sell out as well this coming first Friday at Baldwin Park.
The March of the Princesses
Here are some of my newest box cards. I am loving the Disney chipboard pieces that I found at Joannes. They just happen to be the perfect size for the boxcards. I recently sold out of all of them at my last craft show in February at Baldwin Park. I am in the process of making more and would like to eventually put them on my etsy page.

I hope everyone had a wonderful and special day. I have several lovely projects to share. (sorry they are a bit late.) I have several posts coming. The site software has recently changed and it should be easier for me to add … Continue reading
This is my latest box card creation. I made it for one of my girlfriends and I think she has shown it to everyone. I can’t blame her I love it too. It was made using the Calling all Heros stamp set. I will be adding this one to my etsy store soon and they will be selling for $8 each. Shoot me an email if you would like to preorder one.
Happy Friday everyone,
Here is a cute card I made for a wedding shower. My girlfriend is a bit of a cowgirl at heart so I wanted to combine a cowboy boot and flowers. I feel it turned out really well. For this project I used all Stampin’ Up products: crumb cake, basic black and whisper white paper, crochet ribbon, an antique brad. Flower shop stamp set and coordinating pansy punch. The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set.
I’ve got lots of great pictures to share from recent workshops. If you have missed one of my two recent workshops this is what you missed. For the box card workshop everyone made four box cards for $20. With lots of creative freedom, everyone made some lovely box cards. What do you think?
These are the projects we made at my other workshop. This one was a $10 workshop. We made the peacock card in using Blackberry Bliss paper. The Hershey kiss flower was made using the on-line tutorial I found here: http://qbeesquest.blogspot.com/2013/07/hersheys-kisses-flower-tutorial.html
The little purses each hold a Hershey nugget and the last project was covering a simple dollar store notebook with designer series paper. I hope you enjoy these pictures. More coming soon.
Baldwin Park Independence Day Bash
I did my biggest event to date on July 5 at Baldwin Park’s annual Independence Day Bash. I borrowed a 10×10 tent from my friends at Barnwood BBQ and spent over a week producing inventory for the expected 1000 plus crowd. Unfortunately things don’t always go as planned and the event was almost rained out. My husband and I stuck it out and made a few sales, but overall the event wasn’t really profitable for us. I also lost my cardboard stand due to the rain.
On the plus side I learned a lot and figured out a nice set-up for my cards for future events. I also have a great deal of inventory that I will be putting on etsy. I have several pictures of these new items that I made. Enjoy!
