Another Fabulous Fold

Hi Everyone! I had a quick minute (and only a minute!) to post and I thought I'd show you another one of the folds that we made in my Fabulous Folds Class. This one is the Gatefold Card that is made from Beate's tutorial on SCS. This is such an easy fold, but it makes the card look completely different that a card that's folded normally. The oval piece on the card keeps the card shut and it's so easy to open. It's made with one of my favorite sets Baroque Motifs, and Old Olive cardstock. The center medallion piece is covered in Versamark and then Iridescent Ice Embossing powder to give it some shine. I also used Sahara Sand as the Mat color and the Medallion is stamped in Sahara Sand too.
The 2nd picture show a little different angle of the card with the front open.
I'm off on vacation for 2 weeks, so if I get the chance I will post while I'm gone. I got all of the new In Colors to play with and I can't wait!!

So I may have lied......

I just wrote that I may not be able to post as often, and here I am posting an hour later! I just had to show you another one of the sketches that I finished from the Got Sketch 101 class that I took. The class is now over, but I'm still working on projects using the sketches that we were given. I haven't scrapbooked this much in years! Gotta love having something that motivates you to do even more papercrafting! So here's my layout of my nephew Max's baptism...It was over a year ago and I'm so happy to finally get these pictures in an album. Hope this inspires you to get out your scrapbooking stuff and get your memories down on paper! The only things that I used for this layout were a retired Simply Scrappin' Kit Friends and Flowers, and the Rub on's from Sale-A-Bration. The title was stamped with foam letters that I got on super sale at Hobby Lobby for $3! Gotta love a good deal......

Happy Stampin'!


Another Fabulous Fold

I've been crazy busy again and haven't had time to even think about posting the past few days. I have a Stamp Camp coming up and a Stamp Club meeting, so I've been busy creating, but haven't got anything that I can post because I want my campers and clubbers to see the items first! ALSO, and this is the most exciting MIL and FIL gave me a BEAUTIFUL antique dresser that used to belong to my husbands great grandmother AND they are giving me 3 beautiful wood cabinets that are big enough to store ALL of my stamping/scrappin' supplies in!!! And you guessed it, I'm decorating my crafting room!! I'm painting the cabinets white and leaving the antique piece as is, and I got some beautiful Moss Green paint at the Home Depot for only $5!!!!! It was a mixing mess up, but their loss is my gain! So until things get finished up there, you may not see as many posts.'s the Fab Fold that we made with the Always Stamp Set (Another of my FAVS). The first image is with the card open, and the 2nd is with it closed. It's hard to tell, but there is a crystal from the Pretties kit tied on the ribbon and it looks very elegant. Also, the pink center on the Chocolate heart were punched out with the 1/4 inch punch and then adhered with a mini glue dot.
Recipe: Stamp Set: Always; Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink; Accessories: 1/4 circle punch, Pink Taffeta ribbon, mini glue dots
Hope y'all had a fabulous 4th!
