Half Star Illusion Card 

This Half Star Illusion Card is definitely a show stopper. As you can imagine, it popped up on my Pinterest feed, asking me to make it. The pin belongs to a SU demonstrator from the UK, Crafty Karen Designs, but she mentions that the design is from Iced Images. It sounds like I need to visit Iced Images website, lol! So… Thank you Iced Images for this amazing card.

I am using one of my favorite Designer Series Paper, since I became a demonstrator: the Blackberry Beauty, which I found out is back in stock and on SALE! for $6. It is a steal! Go grab it, before it’s gone.

A new fun fold, pop up card

If you like fun folds you are in for a treat. This fun fold pop up card, is not only gorgeous but simple to make. Pinterest is definitely the place for inspiration, even if I keep seeing pins from France, Germany, and other countries. Don’t ge me wrong, it looks like all these wonderful crafters write pretty detailed instructions, I just can’t understand them, 🤣 But, the inspiration is what matters!

I am aware that I am a Christmas junkie… I just can’t help it. This means one of the cards created in the live was a Christmas card. And yes… I am using the Santa Express Suite, which I simply adore. If you don’t have it… you need it. And while you are at it… spend $50 before shipping and tax and you will get a free gift from me. This month’s free gift is the Memory pack that belongs to the suite. Check my rewards system here

A super cute birthday fun fold

It has been a busy couple of weeks… you know when life takes a path of its own? Thank fully, I am able to take sometime and make some cards. This super cute fun fold is the perfect card for my nephew’s coming birthday. So, gather your crafting supplies and let’s have some fun.

As you might have figured out… I found this fold on… (drumroll) Pinterest, from a French SP demosntrator. Here is her blog Papier, ciseaux et cie.com She has all her measurements in centimeters.

I absolutely love when you have a collection of papers that can help you tell a story in a card. I know I have said this before, but the moment I saw the Happy Forest Friends Suite, I knew I had to get it. It is so adorable and whimsical, right up my ally.

Wonderful book card for a new baby

Any new babies in the family? Well, this book card is a wonderful way to announce a coming baby, create a mini album or to send blessings to the new parents. I saw this card the first time last year, in a video by Jan B. She is so thoughtful that she gives measurements in both Imperial and metric system. Her cards are just awesome. Unfortunately, 2 minutes before the live, I spilled my coffee on all the pieces I was going to use. This completely threw me off and the video has a few… mistakes. Please send me an email if you have questions. The measurements included in the tutorial are correct.
