One of the Pootles team posted a magic card that she had made and I knew I had to try it for myself, so after searching YouTube and Pinterest I cased this one from France Martin.

Join the Whisper White slider Card and the window sheet together with a little bit of snail.

Put the slider in and mark where the frame lies. Separate the two slider pieces

Put the window sheet in the Stamparatus and line up the stamp within the lines for the frame. Stamp onto the window sheet with Stazon Black ink.

Put the slider cardstock into the Stamparatus in the same place and stamp the image again in Memento Black ink.

Here in the UK it is the school summer holidays. it has been unusually hot and I do not cope very well. But so far we have been on a train journey and gone on a picnic.  The kids are loving the fact that they can spend all their time outdoors. Today’s post is a cute mini treat bag cased from Dawn Griffith. It is quick and easy to make. I used both Magnolia Lane and Bird Ballad DSP for these bags.

Cardstock 7″ x 2″
Designer Series Paper (DSP) 6 1/2″ x 1 1/2″

Score your cardstock on the long side at 3″ and 4″ .

Fold and gently burnish your score lines.
