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!

Funky Folds, Halloween

Hello! I am alive! Some crazy days. On our trip home from Stampaway we broke a spring on our new toy hauler. We couldn’t believe it so stranded in Indy for a day. Made it home and Kevin ordered a new spring.

We came home to piles of internet orders and we had a few special orders from Stampaway. I finally got all that done and we are starting on stamps for the next convention.

Today’s card is for Becky O’Donnel’s class in Hamburg, NY which is the next show. It was fun to make.

Birthday, Crazy Z Fold, Funky Folds

Good Morning โ˜€๏ธ

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 ๐Ÿคช

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!

Stamps Used: C315 Screw & Screwhead; C319 Saw Birthday; EE80 Saw Med; GG42 Hammer Med; D341 Screwdriver Med; D342 Wrench Med; C197 Rectangle Handmade;

Birthday, Crazy Z Fold, Funky Folds

Good Morning! We have a lot going on here with the new toy hauler and modifying the booth to fit.

Spent yesterday afternoon in the studio and only got one card done ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคจ it was not a productive afternoon. I was trying to do a new fold and have lots of crazy scored things that didn’t work.

Today’s card is from a few days ago. It is a favorite of mine. I’m planning to teach a class next year called Funky Folds and this card is going to be one of them.

Birthday, Funky Folds

good evening! Another day is done! the days seem to go by faster and faster.

Just a cute story for today… my sixteen year old nephew comes and plays video games with Kevin and he came upstairs tonight and was watching me stamps cards. He wanted to know if I was working or having fun??! I said both and he thought it would be easier to just go buy a card. So I told him my making cards was like his playing video games! He wasn’t convinced!!

I’m having so much fun making funky fold cards. I started this one early this afternoon and it took me a quite a while to get the measurements right but I was having fun!!
