Over the next couple of weeks I’ll share some ways you can use it with different types of adhesive. First up… Read More »

Friday Fun Fold – Buckle Card

By | September 10, 2021

Hi there It’s been some years since I made a Buckle Card and I’ve managed to recreate it with current products. Previously we used either the Word Window Punch or the Classic Label Punch to create the buckle but I managed to find a die that worked a treat from the Tasteful Labels dies. To… Read More »

Friday Fun Fold – Angled Fold Card

By | September 3, 2021

Hi there Today’s card came together really quickly – thanks to some pieces already on my crafting desk. I knew the style of fold I wanted to share but hadn’t thought how to ‘dress it’ until I looked on my desk and saw some bits left over from a previous project. As you may know… Read More »

Hi there Last Friday I shared a Vertical Centre Step Card and today I have another variation on this design – it’s a Centre Step Easel Card that I found online created by a UK demo – Joanne James. Isn’t he cute? The Turtle Friends bundle is so versatile – it doesn’t have to be… Read More »

Friday Fun Fold – Vertical Centre Step Card

By | August 20, 2021

Hi there Back in March I shared a Horizontal Centre Step card and today I have a Vertical Centre Step card. The method to make this card is the same other than the cardstock is scored in a different orientation. Most templates for this orientation were in inches but I finally found a metric version.… Read More »

Technique Tuesday – Inlaid Floating Technique

By | July 6, 2021

Hi there I decided to do the Floating Technique this week and went in search of some videos to get some inspiration. I came across one by Alisa Tilsner (an Australian demo) where she had done this technique with an ‘inlaid’ section using a die. I didn’t want to do a ‘flower’ design so went… Read More »

Friday Fun Fold – Double Point Card

By | July 2, 2021

Hi there The good thing with sharing a fun fold project each Friday is that it’s making me make fun fold cards I’ve wanted to but never got round to. Today’s Double Point card is one I can now cross off my list. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to make one.… Read More »

Technique Tuesday – Herringbone Cards

By | March 16, 2021

Hi there Last Friday’s Fun Fold card used the Herringbone Technique for the front panels and today I thought I’d show you how to make this. This technique is a great way to use up your scraps of Designer Series Paper (DSP). I had some off cut strips plus I cut some more. These strips… Read More »

Friday Fun Fold – Gate Fold Card

By | March 12, 2021

Hi there Here’s another great fun fold that uses a standard sized card base. I like this type of card as it means you can get two cards from an A4 piece of cardstock. The base (Terracotta Tile) is a standard 14.8cm x 21cm. Instead of scoring at 10.5cm for the centre fold I made… Read More »

Technique Tuesday – Eclipse Card

By | March 9, 2021

Hi there Today’s technique is one I haven’t done for ages – it’s called the Eclipse Technique. Most Eclipse cards use alphabet dies but you can use other dies and even punches. Here I’ve used the Playful Alphabet Dies which are a great size allowing for longer words. Our old Large Letter Dies only allowed… Read More »

By | May 30, 2020

Hi there Technology has been great in keeping us in touch with each other during the Lockdown period. We were meant to have had a Stampin’ Up! event at the beginning of May but due to COVID-19 that got cancelled – so Stampin’ Up! created a Facebook group for all NZ based demos so that… Read More »
