Gate Fold Hidden Easel Card

I love this fancy fold card - it's made from one sheet of A4 cardstock, instead of adding an easel fold base to a card base, and it can stand up just like a regular card. 





I've added the links to the products that I've used in case you would like to make some yourself - or let me know if you would like to book a paid class to make some together - I would love to show you how!

Until next time,

More Fancy Fold Flap Fold Cards

I'm back with more of the Flap Fold cards using the Let It Snow DSP from the new Holiday Catalogue. It's such an easy card to make, and I really like it - I sent some out with my customer catalogues last month.
The colours used in this paper pack are Shaded Spruce, Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Whisper White, Blueberry Bushel and Flirty Flamingo.







Let me know if you would like to get together and make some of these cards - I would love to put together a paid class for you :)

Until next time,

Let It Snow Designer Series Paper

New catalogue means new Designer Series Paper - always one of the best parts!
This was the first DSP I bought out of the catalogue during our demonstrator pre-order - I couldn't wait to use it!
It's a Specialty DSP, which means it has something special added to it - gorgeous raised glitter parts on most sheets for this set - just wait until you see it sparkle!















Here is one of the cards that I made using it - a flap-fold card. I cut the snowman out of one of the sheets of the paper:



The sentiment came from the new Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in the new catalogue - I always buy the Itty Bitty sets as they are so versatile and fit just about anywhere on your projects :)

I've added the links below to find the products I have used on this card in case you would like to make some yourself....or book me for a paid class - I would love to show you how I made this!

Until next time,

Happy Fathers' Day!



Have you seen these no glue, tuck and fold boxes around?  I knew the basic fold, so just measured my goodies and made the box to fit - just google "no glue tuck and fold box" for the basic fold if you would like to make one yourself, they are surprisingly easy :)


I've tucked three chocolate bars in mine - a Yorkie bar, a Caramac bar and a Finger of Fudge - my hubby was born in England, so grew up with these chocolates, and when I saw them in the local International Sweets shop I just knew how I wanted to package them!


I used retired dsp as it was one of my favourites, but you could use any dsp in any theme to make and decorate yours :)

Let me know if you would like to learn how to make one of these boxes, I would be happy to put together a paid class for you!

Until next time,

Fancy Fold - Butterfly Card

Do you remember the Butterfly Gala DSP from Sale-a-bration this year?
I absolutely love it, and still use it as I managed to hoard a few packs before SAB finished :)

Here is a quick card from a Fancy Fold class I held last week



Isn't it cute?
A great way to use up your DSP and very quick to make!

Let me know if you would like to book a card class with me :)

Until next time,

Fancy Fold - Double Point Card

I had a Fancy Fold card class last week, and this is one of the cards we made


I love the monochromatic look!
I boo-booed on the first sample I made - I accidentally stuck down both sides of the point haha


Still looks great, and it is a happy accident that turned out ok :)

I made a pink one that opens in another direction as well


If you google 'double point card', you will find plenty of samples and directions on how to make them, so easy, but so different, don't you think?
I used the Magnolia Lane DSP and matching cardstock for the cards, and the flower was made using the Magnolia Dies.
Let me know if you would like to either book me for a card class or order the supplies to make these cards :)

Until next time,
Kylie :)

Father's Day Combo

Father's Day is just around the corner - are you ready?

I have been making cards and matching Merci chocolate holders for a donation basket for my daughter's dance school - our dance team is fundraising for a special event next year.

This is what some of the packs look like (some use retired paper). I used the A Good Man stamp set and each one is heat embossed for that extra touch. 
Each set comes with the handmade card, stamped envelope and a matching Merci chocolate holder, which holds 4 chocolate sticks.











I hope the mums at dancing like them as every $ towards our fundraising will make a big difference!
What do you think, do you like them?
I would love to hear your opinion :)

Until next time,
Kylie :)
