Ready for 2017….

It’s been nice relaxing a little bit over the Christmas break.  I am getting ready for 2017 with this card front that has magnets on the back.  I made this for my Stamp Club as one of the projects!

I loved the saying from the Fresh Fruit stamp set…and of course this Floral Boutique DSP and Floral Phrases is always a favorite!  Here is how I made the diagonal cut and stamped behind the calendar.

Sorry for the off color picture.  I then cut a 4″x4″ square of the Floral Boutique DSP using the following steps:

I hope that makes sense.  I am also having the girls at the Cancer Support Community of North Texas make this as well.  I am also going to make another card to match the calendar for them.  I was excited that they wanted me to come back once a month!

2016 has been rough, but I am thankful for the lessons that it taught me.  I am vowing to appreciate life, family, and to give back to others who are in the battle with cancer! What are your resolutions?

If you are local, I have 2 spots left in my Thursday night club.  Also, if you don’t have a new Occasions Catalog & Sale-a-bration catalog, let me know!

Floral Pleats-elegant!

This was the technique for my September club.  I love that it makes the card so elegant!  I had to use the Floral Phrases too!  It’s just such a pretty set and the paper is just gorgeous!

  1. Cut a piece of DSP and cut it to 8 3/8″x 3″
  2. Score at 3″, 4″, 6″, & 7″
  3. Mark the 3″ score line so you can line that up with the track of the cutter
  4. On your Stampin up Trimmer, line up the corner of the top left (landscape orientation) of piece of the DSP to the 1″.  Then cut the diagonal piece.
  5. Fold in a peak and valley fashion and adhere the pleats together.  I used a dimensional to keep the pleats more pronounced.
