Hello! I needed a graduation card so of course the crazy z fold continues!! So fun and easy; our son and three of his co-workers are coming for lunch so we are looking forward to a short break from stamp making today. I still have two nephews staying with us too. Enjoying all these kids 😊

I’m loving these cards! So easy and fun. We will have our usual make n take’s in Shakopee MN but we are also adding a make n take station with an instructor doing these cards. It will be $3 a card.

A salute to all the Dads out there. I’m thankful for a great Dad and a husband that is a great Dad!

Hello! It’s been a couple of crazy days around here. We’ve had lots of orders and one huge order that we have been working on. Got them all out today but have some odd little orders to get out now.

So this was a fun card to do! I did notice that I could see my copic coloring on the back of the owl and kite (see third picture) so on the second card I made – I cut out extra pieces to put behind the colored one. It also added weight which was good.

I’ve been designing word stamps to go behind these little flaps since it’s hard to find stamps that fit 🤪. Hoping to have them by the MN & TX shows.

Summer time means adventure time! These crazy folds are so fun. I now need to design words to fit under the 2 1/8th section. I’m working on it. My nephew is coming for a few weeks so I’m going to put him on stamp making so I have time to design. so excited!

good morning! We got home at 2:30 am. long night but Kevin is a night owl so night driving is better!

I ran out of my girlie birthday cards on Saturday during the show in Collinsville so I quickly designed another and today’s card is the sample. We liked doing this make n take format and might add it to our other format. It was received well! Fun Card.

Good Morning ☀️

We are frantically getting orders out and trying to make stamps for Collinsville. Our booth placement stinks in Collinsville so likely don’t need to worry about making stamps anyway 🤪

So we are changing our make n take format for Collinsville. We will not have our usual set up but we will be doing two different make n takes. Four spots. More like Paper Cut format. We are doing two different birthday cards. This masculine card and a girlie card that I will post tomorrow!

good evening! I accomplished a lot today. We finished packing the toy hauler- rearranging everything! It was a big job. I got my plants all planted and we painted more peg board for the booth. We found a desk for the toy hauler, bought more plants ( didn’t get enough the first time!) and stuffed make n takes. The bed is going to feel good tonight.
