Birthday Card, Fun fold, Mini Albums

Mini album card, #1

Want to learn how to make a mini album card? These cards are spectacular and and they are a wonderful gift on itself, but you can adapt to have a gift card holder, hidden messages, pictures, even a little calendar. As usual, you will find a video tutorial and a FREE PDF tutorial, that you can download, for convenience.

If you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and are interested in Stampin’ Up! supplies, I’d love to send you complimentary copies of the annual and/or the mini catologs. Simply email me HERE to let me know which catalogs you’re interested in. Please, include your mailing address in the email. You can access our digital Annual Catalog here.

Have you seen the Happy Forest friends Suite? Let’s be honest, I am a sucker for anything forest/mountain related and whimsical stamps… so, this suite was one of those I chose to get right away! Stampin’Up! did a wonderful job at creating this designer series paper. It feels like it all matches so perfectly! The cute stamp set is just adorable and I absolutely love the dies as well. I am also using the Charming Sentiments Bundle. Remember that these are better as a bundle, as you will save 10%, and really who wants one without the other?

This card has a lot of steps, but in itself, it is not hard to make. Pretty straight forward pieces to be added to the card…

Shabby Chic Fold Out card

Let’s learn together how to make a shabby chic fold out card. It is a simple card with so much potential. I am using a variety of Stampin’Up products for this card. I think I got a little too excited… This new catalog has some divine papers, and the Texture Chic is just what I needed to make this card a reality. I am also using the Charming Sentiments bundle, which I think is one of the coolest bundles in the catalog. I am also using the Happiness Abounds stamp set and the some of the dies from the Flower of Home dies. Yes, I got excited. What can I say… I created a video tutorial that you can access here and a Free downloadable PDF tutorial with the instructions.

If you would like a catalog, please let me know. I will gladly send you one for free. Just sent me an email with your name and address.

This card can be made in a simpler way… and a Maria way LOL. I am going to include the measurements of the simple way here. (Watch the video for a clearer explanation) When I was designing this card, I decided to step it up a little and instead of having straight edges at the top, I chose to use a die to create some fun edges. That means that measurements are not really going to be exact… You can put the die an 1/8″ lower or higher and that will throw off the other measurements. If you don’t use dies at the top you will get the same measurements all the time.

I have to say, I love the color combination and the golds, such a soft card and a gorgeous gift to anyone!
