Personalized Double Z Fold Baby Card

Over the Moon Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Our newest grandson was born late last week, so naturally, I set to making a handmade Baby Card.  It's a Double Z Fold Card featuring retiring, carryover, and new stamps and dies.  I love that I could personalize Baby Hudson's Card using my Large Letter Framelit Dies. These dies are fabulous for oh so many things.   I will be sad to see these dies go.  They are only available about a week more or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Would you like to meet Baby Hudson and learn How to Make Double Z Fold Cards?

How to Make a Double Z Fold Card

Cut Card Base 4-1/4" x 11".  Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".

Cut a second strip of card stock measuring 2" x 11" to form the second "Z".  Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".

Hint:  The second Z will go the opposite direction of the card base as shown in the picture above.

The Double Z Fold Card is 3 dimensional, but it will fold to tuck neatly in an A-2 or medium envelope.

You'll be happy to know that the This Little Piggy stamp set is carrying over to the new Stampin' Up! Catalog.  And you will be doubly happy to know that there is a super cute new farm animal stamp set with cows that will coordinate with the This Little Piggy stamp set.  The Over the Moon stamp set and the This Little Piggy stamp set play well together.

Large Letter Dies aren't just for card making, they work equally well for Scrapbooking and Memory Keeping.  Just look at how they work for scrapbook Titles!

Eclipse Card Technique

One of my favorite techniques that works oh so well with the Large Letter Dies is the Eclipse Technique.  Click Here to learn How to Do the Eclipse Technique.

Large Letter Dies Going, Going, Gone.  If you would like to add the Large Letter Dies to your Craft Room Stash, order soon.  They will only be around through June 3 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Scrapbooking Made Simple

Hello Friends,

Yesterday, we talked about moving beyond Paper Hoarders Anonymous. Let's actually use our pretty papers to make cards, scrapbooks and other things.  We all have pictures (memories) lying around waiting to be shared.  Designer Paper is an easy way to pull your scrapbook pages together.  It simplifies the process.

How to Use Designer Paper for Scrapbooking

First, you can simply use a single sheet as the starting point for your scrapbook layout as I did in the Wild About You Scrapbook Page above.  I'll be using the Animal Expedition Designer Paper for all 4 Scrapbook Ideas that I will be sharing today.

To make coordination even simpler, I used the coordinating Animal Outings stamp set to embellish my tag.  Colten and Tenneson were trying to swing as high as a giraffe.

Or you can try using several different paper patterns.  Cut them into different shapes and sizes for a pleasing backdrop for your scrapbook layout.

Another nice thing about using designer paper for scrapbooking is that your designer paper can determine your color scheme.  It takes the guesswork out of choosing colors for your scrapbook page.  I love that Stampin' Up! lists all the colors in their designer paper!  It makes the process even easier.  For instance, the Animal Expedition paper includes Basic Black, Basic Gray, Berry Burst, Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Shade Spruce and Whisper White.

For your convenience, I've included a  list of scrapbooking supplies used in today's Scrapbook pages at the bottom of this post.  What about you?  Do you have some designer paper that would look great on your scrapbook pages?

 

Have a fabulous day,

Inspire Your Heart With Art

Hello Friends,

Bet you didn't know that it is Inspire Your Heart With Art Day?  It is and I rose to the challenge with 3 Paper Crafting Projects.  Which is your favorite way to express yourself with Paper Crafts?  Is it Home Decor?  Is it Scrapbooking?  Or is it Card Making?  Today, I have wall art, a scrapbook layout and a card featuring the bold and beautiful Bloom by Bloom stamp set.  With the Deep Freeze, as weather channels are calling it, the Bloom by Bloom stamp set in bright and cheery colors seemed the way to go.

Who says that you can't use flowers for Boys Scrapbook Pages?  For today's page I stamped blooms with Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch inks.  The Pineapple Punch especially reminds me of sunshine and fun.  Thinking of sunshine and warm days, I included my sunshine die from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Die set.  Since my grandsons are doing a little frog hunting with nets, I couldn't resist a Blueberry Bushel net cut with my Under the Sea Dies.  If you have been following my blog lately, you've probably already guessed the other die set that I can't seem to resist using.  It's the Be Mine Framelits die set.  Besides the great hearts, it also cuts the cute stitched scalloped edge.

This happy Bloom by Bloom is sure to pull anyone and everyone out of the doldrums.  Again, I used bright primary colors (Pineapple Punch, Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick) with one secondary color (Granny Apple Green) thrown in for good measure.  I challenge you not to smile when you look at the bright and cheery Pineapple Punch Stitched Label with the Blueberry Bushel happiest birthday wish dancing across the front.  The sentiment is from one of my go to birthday stamp sets, Picture Perfect Birthday.

And now for the crazy cute Inspire Your Heart with Art Wall Art that started it all.  Again, I started with the Bloom by Bloom stamp set.  I used an array of dies sets starting with the Be Mine Framelits Die set for all the hearts and the stitched scallop trim.  My ticket label and pretty embossed stitched design in the background were made with the Stitched Labels framelits die set.  And I cut my letters with the Large Letters Framelits Die Set.  The pretty Lovely Lipstick polka-dot paper is from the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  I swiped my words from various stamp sets that I had on the shelf.  (Part of My Story, Best Catch)
