Pumpkin Spice Fun Fold Series #4 of 4

Hi, everyone!
I have created 4 cards with all the same fold fun, but using different papers and sentiments.  

This is #4 of 4 in this series.



Here are all 4 cards!
These were so easy and fun to put together.


Papers: Welcome Autumn 6x6 mega pad
Fun fold: Lori Whitlock, Center Step Card
(Silhouette Design Store #228662)
Dies: MFT Die-Namics, Stampin' UP, Close To My Heart, Amazon)
Sentiment: Silhouette Design Store #369737
Enamel Dots: Amazon

I used sentiments from the Silhouette Design Store. Instead of using the Print and Cut feature, I simply just printed them, then used metal dies to cut them out and included a solid color shadow piece.

I also added shadow pieces to the center fold card cut file, and an extra square piece behind the coffee mug.

Turkey Magnets

Hi, y'all!! I hope your Thanksgiving was really great.

I made a bunch of paper turkeys holding banners. I used Foam tape on several of the layers to make it "bigger", and put magnets on the back of them. There was one for all the kids and grandkids that come over yesterday and enjoy a meal and some family fun.


This was a Cricut project file

I had markers out so each person who wanted a turkey magnet could fill in the banner with their name or drawings or things like Hangry or Sleepy... etc.  They took them home for their frig or whatever they want to do with them.

I have to be honest, I'm pretty sure I had more fun making them than they had writing their names on them. hahahah  That's okay. I guess not everyone loves frig magnets as much as I do.

Vintage Happy Birthday

Hi, y'all! I'm doing something a little different today in my card making. I bought a pack of Tim Holtz Vintage Die Cuts last month, and love them! Vintage is hard for me to create on my projects. I just don't have a lot of experience doing that, but I thought I'd try for today's card.



Tim Holtz Vintage Die Cuts
Anna Griffin assorted die cuts from various past kits
Black ribbon
Anna Griffin card base

I'll try to create more Vintage type cards, but be patient with me. I'm old. LOL Learning a new skill is hard. hahaha

Basketball Card

Some of our grandkids are playing sports, and they are doing a great job learning new skills. I had to make them some sport cards to send them telling them how proud we are of them.



I created this card last month right after Kevin scored 3 baskets in his last game. Awesome!

Flower Tag Card

Hi, everyone!
Last month I decided to try to get my Spectrum Noir markers organized in such a way that they all aren't just dumped in the same box. LOL So now, I can find the ones I want much more easily. I sorted them using the SN color chart and labeled drawers 1-9. So all of the colors I have that are on line 1 of the SN color chart are now also in drawer 1, etc. 



I love how this card turned out!

CTMH tag stamps & dies (retired from 2006)

Nuts About You

Hello all my crafty friends and new visitors!

Here is a card I created a couple of weeks ago. It's an SVG file I've had for awhile, but have been putting off making it. It looked really good in the Silhouette Design Store, but it's called "Impossible Card"
 which led me to believe it was going to be hard. 
Oh my gosh. It's so NOT hard. 
In fact, It's pretty simple!


This card takes very little paper, and only has a few die cuts to make. The hardest part was trying to take a picture of it where you could see the sentiment, but still see it standing up. 

Here is the talented Lori Whitlock video tutorial.


I used Recollections cardstock and pattern papers from 6x6 Mega Pad, Welcome Autumn.
