A different way to make waterfall cards

Isn’t it wonderful when you find an easier way to make a card? This version of the waterfall card, really worked for me. I feel that the card is much steadier and there will be no issues with it, long term.

I used one of my absolute favorite Suites from the Mini Catalog: the Santa Express Suite. I have made several cards with this suite, some of them are very simple, all you need is to add pieces from the Memory Card Pack. I totally recommend it.

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.
