    Pansies Little Extra Happiness with Pansy Petals DSP

    Pansies Little Extra Happiness I love Pansies, Little Extra Happiness and so much more about this card. Let’s start with the Pansy Petals DSP (patterned paper – there is a suite too). Both of these patterns come from that pack. The Bumblebee pattern is a soft or subtle pattern. With the flower and leaf pattern being a bit bigger. AGAIN mixing my DSP’s to show off how easy and pretty they can be together. However, this layout works with any coordinating DSP’s. I used this layout for the Make ‘n Take card at the BOGO sale last month. This was the sample idea. The other two used the Beauty of…

    Super Fancy from Fun Fold Class Sweet Strawberry.

    Super Fancy from Fun Fold Here is a Super Fancy from Fun Fold class. Have you gotten your Sweet Strawberry bundle yet?? I know that I will be using is a whole lot!! Let’s talk strawberry colors!! I have tried Flirty Flamingo with Real Red for this card. However, I have also used Calypso Coral and Cherry Cobbler. One more combo that I need to try is Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. Which to me is the obvious color combo. Although it really would not have a ton of contrast. Wanting to show you a little how the fold works. Yes, there really is a lot of cardstock and DSP…

    Envelope Fun Fold yes an easy one from class.

    Envelope Fun Fold yes an easy one Here is an Envelope Fun Fold yes, an easy one from Fun Fold Class. I do really like this one. Another that uses a regular cardbase. I wanted to try and mix a little of the soon to be retiring items with a few new. I will share more about that. The fold really is perfect and very well could be a gift card holder. I would put the gift card holder on the bottom flap. It really is easy, just add a piece of scrap to the left or right side. DONE!! Dontcha love that flower. The technique is called Two Step.…

    First of the Fun Fold Cards, this is an easy one!

    First of the Fun Fold Cards Here is the First of the Fun Fold Cards. I want to say that this one is one of the EASY ones too! My favorite part is that you use a regular cardbase to start. If you have done any fun (fancy) folds you know that most take a TON of paper. You might need to start with 12 x 12 paper. UGGHH, right?? Not this one. What does that mean?? Well you still get two cards from one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. Which is a win when you do not have a lot of colors or cardstock in…

    Fun Fold Treat Box, because candy is necessary!!

    Fun Fold Treat Box Okay, I just start off with saying chocolate is needed for the Fun Fold Treat Box. As you can see there is LOTS of it in this little box. I also want to add this box is from scrap of one of the fun folds that we made. Yes, no scraps for this one!! WooHOO. Even the decorating is from the scrap bin. I do love when you can create such cute ideas without cutting a BIG full piece of cardstock. However, if you need to make several then this would yield two boxes from one piece. I used a few different items here… The leaves…

Just remember that there are two sides to a piece of paper!! How about more smiles!! You bet there were many of those. However, I did need to be sure that there was not only snacks. But there was…

Just grab a couple of your favorite colors and a stamped image, using Memento ink. Or like we did here a 12 x 12 sheet of True Love DSP. However any black and white would do wonderfully. Start off with one color. Start with the lightest color first. Then using the lines that exist on the flowers…
