Hey There! for CCMC 284, Mojo Monday 327 and Addicted to CAS

'Hey There' want to see some sneak peeks and other cool stuff 'cause I just made my first card for the year.  Yay!

It's been ages since I ventured into my craft room to stamp.  I was in the middle of cleaning and tidying the kitchen drawers but got distracted by the arrival of some pre-order goodies.  I couldn't believe that my order only took 2 days to arrive.  That must be some sort of record for delivery to Tassie.

I honestly didn't know where to begin so I went looking for a couple of challenges to help give me a 'kick start'.  The Colour challenge at CCMC looked like fun and I always love the sketches at Mojo Monday (even though I don't get a chance to join in very often).  So I put the two together and came up with this CAS card -

Hey There! for CCMC and Mojo Monday

... then I discovered that Addicted to CAS had a challenge with the code word:  DIE CUTS so I've decided to link up there as well :)

Cute card! My order was posted yesterday so there is some hope that my goodies will be here by Friday. Good to see that the cleaning was put on the back burner to crack open the new goodies.

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…
