Hello Friends!   

I love creating fun fold cards such as the side step. This fun card was taught yesterday night.

Here are the measurements:

  1. Cut (1) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White Thick cs. Along the 5-1/2" side, make a small marking at 3" from the left and 1" from the bottom. Using an xacto knife or your paper cutter, start your cut at 1" and cut to the 5-1/2".
  2. Using your scoreboard, along the 8-1/2" side, from the edge to the cut line, score at 1", 2", 3-1/4", 4-1/2" and 6-1/2". 
  3. Mountain, Valley, Mountain, Valley and Mountain fold in this order starting at the 1" score line.
  4. Cut (1) 2-3/4" x 4" Designer Series Paper and mount on the front of the card.

I saw someone creating a wreath using a template, and was so impressed that I had to try it myself and create my own template.


I am using the Blended Seasons stamp set, and decided on a Christmas card theme as we gearing towards Christmas season soon. I used the bell stamp, and did you know that you can use this bell for Christmas too? Check out my video below.

Blended Seasons

No comments
Hello Friends!   

Welcome to my weekly live and blog. I just finished posting this card on my FB Live. If you missed it, I am here every Wednesday at 7:30 pm PST. Be sure to like and share my page so that you get the notifications.



I am all about multiple stamping. Meaning create more than one of the same card. You have all your supplies out, why not. Saves you time from having to recreate and clean up again.

This post is all about the Blended Seasons bundle. I really love this set as it has so many varieties. 

When creating this card, I realized that there is no coordinating die for the hibiscus. I hate fussy cutting so I created a SVG file for the hibiscus stamp. 

I use (1) 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White cs, score at 5-1/2" as the base card.

I used the layering squares framelit and basic black cs to create the frame. If you have an e-cutter create the black frame for multiple stamping.

These are the inks I used:

  • Granny Apple Green
  • Poppy Parade

Aquapainter

I am going to be in Orlando, Florida for Stampin' Up! 30th year convention in November. I will be bringing some dauber cases there. If you would like to reserve one for yourself and save on the shipping, please let me know.





Cost is $35 US. You will receive the Full Wood Mount case, template, cut foam to hold 40 daubers, and you get 5 daubers to start. Please email me with your payment if you want to reserve one.

Thinking of You

Hello Friends!    

RIP Masaru Ho.

Our family is sadden by the loss of this kid. Just 34 years old who lost his life in a motorcycle accident on August 1, 2018 around 6:30 pm.

He is my cousin's youngest son who was supposed to be married in two weeks.



Funeral will take place next Saturday in Vancouver, and I was in need of a sympathy card. I hate making them as they are depressing so decided to brighten it up a little.


I used the Painted Harvest stamp set for the very first time and it was sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

Because I hate making them, I said to myself to make multiples to have on hand so that I don't have to think about them. For the sentiment I used the Rooted in Nature set.

(1) 5-1/2" x 11" Very Vanilla cs, score at 4-1/4"
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla cs
(1) 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Basic Black cs
Remnant piece of Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Basic Black cs

Granny Apple Green ink
Lemon Lime Twist ink
Early Espresso ink
Pineapple Punch ink
So Saffron ink
Daffodil Delight ink

Edited: August 8, 2018 - Here is the video tutorial here to create multiple cards.

Hello Friends!    

Getting back into routine again. If you haven't read the last post, I went back full-time work and threw me off schedule. Hoping to get back blogging again.

Christmas is rolling around the corner, and it time to start creating Christmas stuff for craft fairs or just to have on hand.

This post is making gift card holders.




I started off with ...

(1) 3-1/2" x 11" Old Olive cs, score at 1-1/2" and 5-1/2". Valley fold at the 5-1/2", and mountain fold at the 1-1/2".

(1) 3-1/2" x 4" Designer Paper
(1) 2-1/2" x 4-3/4" Whisper White remnant
(1) 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" Basic Black remnant

Here is a video for you.

Mini Album in a Case

7 comments
Hello Friends!         
With my deepest sadness, it is time to say goodbye to the Creative Circle Design Team. After 4 years creating this group, I am returning to work on a full-time basis. Work has made an offer which I couldn't refuse. Although it is minimal amount, the long range forecast outweighs for retirement in the next 5-10 years.

This is the final debut of the Creative Circle Design Team, and we present to you a Mini Album in a Case.

There are over 50+ pictures in this case, and it shuts tight as you see in this picture below. The mini album is designed to fit in Stampin' Up! Full Wide cases.
I created this mini album using the Best Route Designer Series Paper (146897), together with Best Route Cardstock Pack (146898). I am waiting for the remaining materials to come so that I can finish this up for my sister. 


It has a lot of interactive pages, and pockets to add your all your tickets and more pictures.
I want to show it all, so I created a Trailer Showcase.


I am finishing the tutorial, and it will be ready next week. Details will follow. Read on before heading to the team's creation.





Want a copy, come join my team, and you will receive all my tutorials.

What is the best part? This month's special is a stinking awesome deal. This is a "Want it All" starter kit.
