Hello Bronwyn.. I wanted to say thank you so much for this information... I was surfing around looking for additional ideas for my newly purchased Two Tags Die and this is perfect! Incidentally I am presenting at the Sydney Regionals, and am showing something different with the Two Tags die myself! But seriously... I wish I had thought of some of these! (And I'll show my projects on my blog after Regionals next Saturday) Well done... I find your work very inspiring!

Wow! Bronwyn these are just amazing. I loved your butterfly easel cards. Such versatility from this tag set. Thanks for sharing your ideas and the instructions are perfect.
You are a star! These are so amazing! It was so great to see all the pics from regionals. Unfortunately I had a triple clash of dates for regionals ... and regionals ended up being bottom of the list. So ... sadly I won't be there (in Sydney!) Hugs xxaxx
These are fabulous! Thanks for the great directions. I'll be sharing your wonderful ideas at my next downline meeting.

These really are WOW's. Thank you for sharing. I had purchased this die as I thought the bookmark was cute, but I love all the items that you've made with the other shape.

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…

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.

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…
