"Photo Album Fold" with Holly & Berries

Here's a really easy Fun Fold card for you...one that didn't have a name. I didn't know what to call it, but I got a couple suggestions from customers, "Mary's Fun Fold Card" and the "Photo Album Fold". I like the ring of that first name, but don't want to end up with a big head - haha - so I'll call this the Photo Album Fold!

My video demonstration also shows heating embossing and coloring the holly & berry with Stampin' Blends. Be sure to watch to the end for a fun tip to create raised berries that look like enamel dots.

 

Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set, Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper, & Stitched Shapes Dies by Stampin' Up!

So many elements make this card classic and elegant...the classic theme of holly & berries, the rich Mossy Meadow color with the deep Cherry Cobbler Red on Very Vanilla card stock, the copper embossing, the Copper Foil Paper, the copper accents on the Mossy Meadow Designer Series Paper, and the stitched detail on the 2 squares.

This card created by my friend and Stampin' Up! demonstrator Tamra Davis was the inspiration for my #applepicking 2-page scrapbook layout.

Just Breathe

Like many people, I've spent my life taking care of others, being there for others, giving to others. While all that is good and has brought me many blessings and great joy, it has also caused me to at times (ok, many times) neglect myself. So, now in my 50's, I've been working on self-care, and yes, it has been tough. I'm getting better at it, though. I'm paying more attention to my physical and mental health. I'm drinking more water, spending time in quiet prayer each day, getting more sleep (but still not enough). I've taken up running and really am starting to enjoy it. I sometimes skip some at-home-work to enjoy a glass of wine, a bowl of popcorn, and a movie or favorite show. I've been blasting music in my car going to and from work. (I was always telling my girls to turn the radio down in the car. What was I thinking???) I give myself permission to take a walk or ride my bike or just sit on the patio with my feet up BEFORE I mow the lawn. I might treat myself to a bubble bath and put my pj's on by 7pm. I hope that in doing all these things and many more, I'm becoming the best ME I can be. It is my hope that I'm showing my daughters that it is not selfish to take care of yourself. In fact, it is necessary for our well-being, leads us to peace and joy, and helps us to take better care of others.

I used my creativity, love of paper crafting, and some of my favorite Stampin' Up! products to make this home decor piece for myself. I have it displayed in my house where I see it everyday. It's pretty, it's inspiring, and, most importantly, it reminds me to take time for self-care so that I can achieve my goal of being the best ME that I can be.

Open the Gate, #Elfie!

In the following Facebook Live video, I demonstrate how to make a Gate Fold Card and how to make cute gift tags from Designer Series Paper scraps. Both projects feature the adorable #Elfie Stamp Set and Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Positives & Negatives

So often we punch a shape from a scrap of card stock or Designer Series Paper and toss the left over. In this video, I demonstrate how with a little thought and planning, you can punch shapes in a way that will allow you to use the negative spaces left behind to make a second card equally as nice as the one made with the punched pieces. I've featured the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set and Pine Tree Punch with Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper. Take a look at my positive and negative cards in my FB Live video below. I'm positive you are going to want to put some of your punches to work using this technique.

Since I was enjoying this technique so much, I decided to apply it to decorating our Gold Mini Pizza Boxes!

I used the 2 pine trees I punched from the card stock and DSP circles on the top box to decorate the bottom two boxes.

#Elfie Buckle Card & Paper Piecing

#Elfie is such a cute stamp set. It's fun and versatile and appeals to everyone, the young and the young at heart! (And you don't have to worry about moving it around the house night after night or if anyone has touched it causing it to lose its magic powers. hahaha) #Elfie is the featured stamp set in my FB video demonstration of a Buckle Card along with cheery prints and patterns from the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper.

Enjoy the video demonstration, then try making a few Buckle Cards yourself. I'd love to hear your thoughts and see your own Buckle Card Creations.
