So I’ve been a little silent on the blog! We’ve been very busy catching up on some yard work. Kevin has a new job and he’s not working as many hours (the reason for the change was too many hours!) so we have been doing things around the property that we’ve been wanting to do. Our first project was a raspberry garden…
This was the start. At some point I will show you the finished! My sister called and asked me to make her some graduation cards and I went right to work 😉
I do find gatefold cards a challenge some times but this was left over from some make n take and it was the right color for the graduate school so I decided to work with it!
Hello! I wanted to make a get well card for a friend but guys cards can be difficult. I love coloring so this was a fun card to make. We are busy making stamps and I have 40+ people in my class at Stampaway so we’ve been busy at night putting those class kits together.
Good Morning. I have to let you guys know that l was asked to beta test a new iso for my blog posts. I should never do that because I'm not technically suave enough. The 😊 that you see are emojis that didn't post correctly not me "swearing ". Then it switched photos when it posts to face book. groan! and of course I have no idea how to get out of the beta. so I apologize.
another fun gatefold card! all week you'll see them.
Good Morning 😃 I'm up early this morning and ready to get the day going! I'm on supper duty tonight and I'm making teriyaki chicken/steak. Looking forward to it. My sister made it a few weeks back and I've been dreaming about it since 😍
Good Morning! ☀️ I have to confess that I love gatefold cards. I really like using the die Sarah and I designed for the tops. The cards open so seamless compared to cutting with two dies. I think it's because the new die is perfectly centered.
My biggest dilemma is I like patterned paper for the sides. I went to a local scrapbook store and bought $50 worth of patterned paper and wasn't really happy with any of it 😡
The other day I decided that as a stamper, ( right; we are stampers!!) I should just stamp my sides and I am so much happier with them. Just the right amount of pattern.
I learned something else while doing this card…glue can smear your ink. yep, don't look too close or you can see where my glue got away from me and smeared the ink 🙄
