Infinity Card

 

Infinity Card
One of the other projects we did at our craft day was an Infinity Card. They decorated it using the Vibrant Vases stamp set that we had included in their goodie bag.

4 Pieces of Soft sea foam or Pear Pizazz Cardstock 6” x 3”
8 pieces of Garden Lane DSP 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”
8 pieces of Garden Lane DSP 2 ¾” x 1 ¼”
8 pieces of Garden Lane DSP 1 ¼” x 1 ¼”
Scraps of coloured and White Card Stock

On the 6” side of your cardstock score a 1 ½” and 4 ½”. Turn he cardstock over and go over your scorelines on the other side, so he cardstock bends easily in both directions. Burnish your scorelines in both directions.

infinity card instruction

Lay two of your pieces of cardstock one above the other in Landscape. Then, in the narrow ½” margin on each side, measure down 3” and make a small pencil mark.
In the areas marked with an X on the image add some tear and tape.
Make sure the two pieces of cardstock are sat snuggly together and the lay the remaining two pieces of cardstock side by side in portrait, attaching them to the landscape cardstock by the tear and tape.
So you should have four pieces of cardstock all attached together by the outside corners.
You should now be able to go through the different sections of your infinity card. If it catches, you may need to trim a small bit off.
Infinity Card front
You can now decorate it. Stamp out the images and punch out. Some of the images I don’t fussy-cut, but found I really enjoyed doing the flowers for this card.
Stamp your sentiment and punch it out.

The ladies who attended the class who hadn’t made one before were amazed at how simple they were to make and how effective they were. Let me know if this has inspired you to try one and show me how it worked out

Sailing Home Scrapbook Page

sailing home scrapbook
I recently ran a very successful craft day to  launch the brand new catalogue with my friend and Upline DebsyDaisy. We did 6 projects, a quiz, raffle and provided lunch which was prepared for us by Mr DebsyDaisy.  Everyone was given a goodie bag including a stamp set which we used for one of the projects which I will be blogging on Saturday.

This scrapbook page was one of my projects and my first attempt at Scrapbooking. I was looking for a photo to use and came across this old one of my children at Butlins. The baby is now 11 years old and the little girl in green has two children of her own 🙂  You can find all the products I used in my online store at the links below.

Base – Night of Navy Cardstock 8″ x 8″
Layer 1 – Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper 7″ x 7″
Scarps of Whisper White Cardstock
Small scrap of Crumb Cake Cardstock

Stamp out your images on Whisper White Cardstock and die cut them.
Cut the ships wheel out of Crumb Cake Cardstock.

Layer the DSP onto the Night of Navy Cardstock.
Wrap the Baker’s twine around the page and tie in a knot adding the Sail Away Trinket
Place your photo using photo corners.
Add your images.

Until next time,

Happy Crafting

Pootlers Blog Hop

What an exciting week this is. A brand new annual catalogue and my first blog Hop 🙂

So many fun new products I ‘need’. My wish list is sooo long. But, my favourite suite in the catalogue has to be the Come Sail Away Suite. I love everything about it which I don’t usually find with a suite. The wonderful Sailing Home stamp set with matching dies, a 3d embossing folder, gorgeous Designer Series Paper, bakers twine and sweet little anchor and ship’s wheel trinkets. Not only that, but we have the Come Sail Away Memories and More cards. How did they get so much gorgeousness in one suite. As usual all the items can be ordered from my online store from the links below.

My card today is a simple one just using Whisper White Cardstock with Night of Navy and Black ink because it doesn’t need anything else.

Come back on Wednesday to see another project from my recent craft day with my friend and Upline Debsydaisy.

Please go and check out the other great projects from the Pootlers team by clicking the blue box.

Can’t cope with Technology

 


Today’s blog is a three-in-one. I don’t know if it’s my age or my brain, but I have been merrily scheduling my blog not realising I was saving as pages not as blog posts, so no idea where my projects are, but these are the last three blogs you should have seen. Hope you enjoy them.

Life has a habit of getting in the way of the good stuff and just recently I have had a lot going on with my family which I won’t bore you with, but needed to be given my full attention. I am however full devoted to my Stampin’ Up! business and anyone of you lovely people who stick with me, so if I am AWOL it just means family and my mental health issues have had to take my attention for a while. Thank you for your continued support.

Anyhow, onto the good stuff 🙂 I was working on my projects for a craft day I was doing with my good friend and Upline from Debsydaisy Crafts and I had to do the projects for my class too, so wanted something simple, but effective and I was actually quite pleased with how this turned out.
