(RECIPE BELOW) I made this for my mom and her favorite color is purple. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the top, and punch that I've had for a long time on the bottom. If you have the SU! curly label punch this will work as well. I used it on the bottom to create the legs of each panel. The paper is from the Journeys stack from Kathy Davis. I recently picked it up at Joann's for 60% off. Love those kinds of deals. I used a dragonfly punch and a flourish punch by EK Success. The bling is from my stash. For the sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Heart to Heart."
To make this card, take a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 colored cardstock. With the 11 inch side at the top of your scoring board score at: 2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4. Fold in half then fold (mountain) and the panels in(valley.) I cut it down to about
6 x 11 inches after I used the Martha Stewart border punch. Depending on how big of a border punch you use, you can adjust how long you want it to be. So what do you think???? I love how it turned out and more importantly so did my mother. I love to give her cards to let her know how much I love her.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you! Have a great day!

CLICK HERE. I made this card for a friend of mine for her birthday. A friend of mine shared the directions for this card. It has a pocket on the inside and outside.
I used the Cardz TV Stamps set called "Beary Sweet." This goes perfectly with the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge. The teddy bear and layers were cut at 3 inches. I used the Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder on the balloons, and a Sizzix folder on the hat. I used a small punch for the flower on the bear's shirt. The papers are from my stash. I know the yellow and cupcake paper are from a 6 x 6 mat stack by Kathy Davis called Hello Sunshine! I found it at Joanns for 60% off. I just love those kinds of deals.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would love to hear from you! Have a great weekend!

Cardz TV. Mary gave our DT a challenge to make a card, layout, or craft project using something you would put in a jar. I remember going to my dad's office when I was little, and the secretary had treats in a jar. So I pulled out Mary's awesome new Cardz TV stamp set called "Love In a Jar."
I stamped the large jar and fussy cut around it. I took a 3 inch scallop punch and cut out a topper for the jar. I punched an oval out of the center. In between the two jars is a holder for the nuggets. It is a 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of cardstock that was scored and folded. On the 1 1/2 inch side it was scored at 1/4, and 1 1/4. On the 4 1/2 in side it was scored at 1 1/2, 3. Cut the small middle scorelines up to the intersection. I put sticky tape on the long sides and bottom flap and adhered it to the back side of the punched jar. I used paper from a 6 x 6 paper pad from Doodlebug Design Inc. called Fruit Stand. I used the Word Window punch from Stampin' Up, and added twine on top. What do you think?
Now it's your turn to make a card, layout, or craft project using something you would put in a jar. It's okay if you don't have this set. But it's a really cute set to add to your collection. I can't wait to see what you create. You have until June 27, 2013 to enter your project. Mary will be giving away a set of her stamps to the winner! I hope you check out the other Design Team ladies' blogs for more inspiration.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really "Love" to hear from you! Have a great weekend!

CLICK HERE. I made a gift card holder for my friend's daughter. She lives in Washington and our daughters always send birthday presents. I had some birthday paper in my stash that I used. I embossed the two panels with the D'vine Swirls and Swiss Dots folders.
For the sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps sets "Make A Wish", and "Good Times". Tucked inside is a Michaels gift card.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a very crafty day! I hope to hear from you!
