Some more Pics

This is the very talented, Christine Blain, who enters the Just Add Ink Challenges on a regular basis! It was so lovely to meet her and a big wave to Kim also. I should have got a photo of you as well. Thanks ladies for supporting the challenges each week with your great entries and lovely comments. It is very much appreciated!

Well, Delys managed to find me on the first day and we had to get a shot of us under the 'Vintage Style' Display Board, seeing we're the only JAI Girls in our naughty forties!

Then I managed to spot Sarah in the crowd early the next day. It was great to meet these wonderful ladies on the Design Team.

... and who should be standing right there to say hello to? None other than the very talented Kirsty Brown who is on the Inkspirations' Design Team. Kirsty also loves to enter the JAI Challenges. It was great to finally meet her too!

As you can tell from the last few blog entries, being a part of the SU Family and making friends with people that share a passion for papercraft and stamping is a big part of the reason I love doing what I do!

I'll be back with some more pics of the Awards Dinner!

Hi Bron! It was a real highlight of Convention, to meet up with you; I didn't get a photo on my camera, so would you mind if I 'borrow' yours? I was disappointed to miss out on one of your swaps, but took photos of the one my roomie scored. You are so talented, and a real sweetheart. Look forward to seeing you at next Convention!!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
