Happiest of Birthdays Pop Open Card in several sizes

 This is a pop open card that is much easier to see with the video.  Click here for the video.

I made my card 8 x 8 with the pattern paper 3 1/2  x 3 1/2, the smaller one was made 6 x 6 with 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 pieces. So long as you have a square you will be fine!

Scoring: score the 8 x 8 at 4" turn it 90 degree and score again 4" and then score along the diagonal.  Now make a last score line (parallel to the diagonal) through 1 of the squares.

Tip... make sure you stamp on the diagonal, with the paper on the diagonal (you'll see my blooper in the video!)

Super easy - make lots!

Winners of the In Color Challenge and Lots of Pansy Card ideas

We have a fun, creative team. Every so often I give them a challenge... this one was to use the new in colors along with the new Pansy paper (which has many of the new in colors).  From a random drawing I chose 3 winners who have bling coming to their mailbox. I used the You Are Amazing set with the kit to make them cards and decorate their prize. 

Here's a selection of cards.. wonderful inspiration for the new Pansy Suite in our new catalog!

IDEAS Blog Hop May: Fast and Fabulous



Welcome to our IDEAS blog hop for May 2021. We are 12 international Demonstrators with a 50 page full color tutorial bundle for you.  This month the theme is Fast and Fabulous... you'll want to make them all.  You will get 12 detailed tutorials with a range of projects.  The tutorials have detailed instructions in imperial (aka inches!) and metric. 

Here is our sneak peek collage for the May IDEAS Tutorial Bundle.  Each photo represents one designer's tutorial in our bundle.

I have to confess I got mixed up and thought it was "fast and furious" as a theme! So there I was creating my designer paper in new in-colors with fast and furious stamping :)

All the details, how-to, dimensions and tips are in my tutorial. Lots of photos to make it easy to follow along.

I hope you like these projects and the projects from my fellow IDEAS demonstrators.  It's really a great bundle of inspiration for crafters or demonstrators looking for new ideas or workshop ideas.  Keep hopping so you can see all the creativity.   The bundle is about 55 pages of detailed full color instructions with 15+ projects (cards, 3D, and more!)

Would you like a copy of the instructions for these projects to use for your personal use, or even to use in your classes? Contact me at Free to customers who purchase $35, or Free to my team members, or $15 by PayPal.  

Once you have received the tutorials, please remember not to share or distribute the printed or electronic copies of these bundles. We have worked hard to provide these exclusive projects for your use. If you know someone that would like to purchase the bundle, please direct them to me to obtain their copy. Thanks for your support.

Thanks for stopping by. Please click on NEXT and visit Janey in Idaho, US the next talented IDEAS demonstrator! 

Happy Hopping! MaryKate
