    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…

    First Look at Fun Fold Here is the First Look at Fun Fold Class and all the shenanigans. Soo, many beautiful smiles too!! We teased Betty on this one.

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…

    Second Look at Coloring Class. How about a Second Look at Coloring Class, with a masculine touch. I am excited to be able to remind you that Blending Brushes are back in stock!! WooHooo. I used Just Jade and Mossy Meadow for the above card idea. To me this patterned piece looks like either succulents for cabbage for fall. Either of those could very easily be for the man in your life. Joe liked it anyway… haha For this part of the class we used just one Blending Brush. Working from light to dark. It really does cut down on cleaning. Just Jade was our lighter color. Random blending spots…
