Aliens, Birthday, Crazy Z Fold

We are back on the road! Yesterday Kevin looked at the weather and decided to leave. We packed in a hurry; hopefully didn’t forget anything ๐Ÿคจ

We spent the night in Bloomington , IL at the DoubleTree since no water in the toy hauler. We had a nice travel day but today we have had nothing but rain! Rain is better than snow but we have seen three accidents already.

Another fun pop out z fold card!

Birthday, Crazy Z Fold, Cutting Dies w/ matching stamp

Hello. Spent a little time in the studio today. Cleaned! Boy, did I have a mess. Why is crafting so messy??๐Ÿ˜

Since I’m teaching this type of card fold in my class this year – I like to make a bunch of them so I’m very familiar with the card. They are a little addicting.

Crazy Z Fold, Friendship, Funky Folds

So I’m rocking and rolling and getting things done around here. ๐Ÿ™‚ so much organizing that I forget to blog! Just cleaning up old make n takes and re-organizing things. Heat went out in the studio so we had to get a new heater- lucky we’ve been having beautiful weather in WI!!

Today’s card is one of our Fabulous Friend cards from our class. We will be teaching at all the Heirloom shows, Akron, and possibly Stampaway.

It’s a fun swing fold!

Crazy Z Fold, Friendship

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 ๐Ÿคช. Hoping to have them by the MN & TX shows.

Birthday, Clear Stamp Sets, Crazy Z Fold

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.
