Morning Cup

This Gift Pocket Wallet was designed by Erica from Pink Buckaroo Designs. I was surfing the Internet for some inspiration for the Morning Cup Stamp Set and came across her fantastic tutorial!

Hubby was at work today so I enjoyed an afternoon of crafting. I think we're going to see a movie at C Max tomorrow as we both actually have the same 'day off'.

A few people have wondered how I get so much 'crafting' done ... the answer is simply this ... "I'm married to a shift worker".

Morning Cup Gift Pocket Wallet

I enjoyed getting out the Aqua Painter for a bit of watercolouring.

Thanks, Jeane, for the Early Expresso Striped Grosgrain Ribbon!
(I think it would have to be my favourite ribbon from the IB & C)

An Inside View

A Bit of Paper Piecing using Elegant Soiree DSP

This was made as a 'Get Well' card for a friend who is recovering from major heart surgery. I hope she likes it. She's more of a tea drinker than a coffee addict like myself!

I'll have to make another one and adapt the 'pockets' to fit my favourite coffee bags inside. Maybe for the next Stamp Class. Any takers?

Card Stock: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede
Ink: Basic Brown, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Early Expresso, Crumb Cake

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!
and ...
 JUGs #350 - Word Week

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…
