All Squared Away….again.

A few weeks ago, I shared a card made with the All Squared Away Stamp Set.  As I was writing that blog post, I thought of a great way to use that stamp set….and I’m finally getting around to sharing my idea with you! Mini cards!  The square design just seemed destined to go on… Continue reading All Squared Away….again.

All Squared Away….It’s in Progress.

There is nothing like having everything all nice and neat.  Everything in it’s place...neat and tidy.  Well, let me just tell you that it’s not happening right now in my little craft corner of the world.  My desk is littered with bits and pieces of the card I’m sharing with you now, plus I have… Continue reading All Squared Away….It’s in Progress.

Let’s Be Insprired by……Inspiring Iris

It’s easy to overlook stamp sets in the Annual Catalog....especially when a smaller Mini Catalog come out a month of two after the Annual Catalog launch with even more fun stamp sets to play with and if it's a set that carried over from a previous year, sometimes they don't get a second look. Today… Continue reading Let’s Be Insprired by……Inspiring Iris

Sweet Ice Cream – Double Z Fold Alternative

I'm not really sure what to call the special fold on this card....except to say it is a FUN fold!  It's similar to a Double Z fold (like in this post: Snail Mail Fun Fold) but the "extra Z" is not as wide and big and in the middle like in that post....it's skinny and along… Continue reading Sweet Ice Cream – Double Z Fold Alternative

Fine Art Floral Fun Fold

This is actually a re-make of a card that I made in 2019 when I was visiting my daughter in Seoul, South Korea.  I had packed a few stamping supplies so I could stamp on the long 17 hour flight, I didn’t end up doing that....those seat trays are tiny!  But I did make quite… Continue reading Fine Art Floral Fun Fold
