Beach Play Scrap Layout - Stampin' Up!

Lola's holiday continues. Enjoying a play on the Maroochydore Beach with her little sister Ivy. Co-ordinated the Color Theory memories and more cards with our designer series paper and cardstock. Used a few different stamps for the sentiments, and the framelits for the big waves. I used the paste for the waves in the back ground. To make these waves I used the Swirly Scribble Thinlits as a template to apply the paste.
Great memories,

Happy Stampin' 


Memories and More with Stampin' Up! Lola's holiday snaps.

Wow, how easy is it to great some memories completed with these wonder packs from Stampin' Up!. This pack is Color theory memories and more card pack. I just added a little stamping, and 2 pages completed.
All I need now is Lola to write her thoughts on her activities.

These layouts show how alphabet stamps and framelits are a must for a scrap booker.
I think I completed these within a half an hour. That's amazing for me.
Very happy with both layouts.

Now it's your turn, if you want any info, please give me a call, email or just comment below.

Fanfare Fold Card - Stampin' Up!

Loving having a couple of days off to play with new products. No housework today. This little card is fun and easy to create. I found this idea from Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek.

Give this card a go, you will be able to create many different ones.

Base piece of card stock - 4 1/8". X. 5 3/4". ( 1/4 piece of A4 sheet)
I then embossed with the new garden trellis embossing folder.

Then cut a piece of soft sky piece of card stock 4 3/8". X. 3 1/4"

Then cut the fold piece in blushing bride 4 1/8". X. 11"

Scored that piece along the 11" side at 1 1/2", 3", 5 1/2" and 8"

Fold mountain valley 

I used the birthday memories designer series paper, cutting at 1 1/4". X. 3 7/8", 2 1/4". X. 3 7/8" and lastly 2 3/4". X. 3 7/8"

I cut 1 piece of whisper white at 2 1/4". X. 3 7/8" then stamped with the birthday delivery stamp set.

For the greeting I used paint play stamp set ( 1 of my favourites) and the 2nd oval from the stitched shape framelits.

Multi-flip card Tutorial.

Hi Everyone , been asked by several for a tutorial on a card I created for my grand-daughter. I have never done one before so I hope you can understand it. I have looked everywhere for the card I was inspired by but can't find it anywhere. 
Here's my grand-daughters card firstly. 

Front of card


Firstly cut 2 pieces of card stock 5 3/4" x length of A4 sheet.

Take 1 of those pieces and score at 4 1/8"
Then move the whole piece of card stock so the scoreline, lines up with the 5" mark
Then you will need to score every 3/4" right to the end. 
There will be this much to much, just cut off so the last bit measures 3/4".
Take the second piece of card stock that measures 5 3/4. X A4 and start to score from the beginning every 3/4" x5 times.

You will need to cut the excess off. So line the last score line up with the 4 1/8" mark. And then cut the rest off. This should measure the same as the the large area on the first piece. These create front and back of card.
So you need to fold valley then mountain, and then you stick both pieces together.
You can make this card have fewer flips or more, you just to more or less scoring.
Joined together. This card has 7 flips
Adding flips, cut 14 pieces of card stock 2 3/4". X. 2 1/2"
Stick the top flips on to the left side of the mountain, level at top of card.
Stick the bottom pieces onto the backside of the mountain. (Oops I wrote right side on note for top it's the left sorry)
All pieces in place.
Bottom view

Cut 14 pieces of co-ordinating card stock.
If you want to decorate or emboss these pieces this is the time to do it, before you stick them on.
Cut 3 pieces of card stock, 1 -  Front, 1 -  inside front, and 1 - inside back.  I used coloured card stock for front and w/w for inside pieces.  Cutting size 5 1/2". X  3 7/8"
Before putting on front cover, you will need to measure ribbon. Wrap it around you card, the ribbon keeps your card together.
Attached ribbon under the card stock for front.
Inside of card. Attach the inside front and back pieces. Decorate how ever you like. 

Hope you understand these photos and you enjoy creating your own flip card. Please post some of your card and tag me into them so I can see them

Stampin' Friends Blog Hop

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to Kelly's Friends Blog Hop, showcasing HAPPY. Firstly I would like to congratulate Kelly on her 5th year anniversary with Stampin' Up! Great effort Kel.
My project is a scrap layout of our handsome grand-son Oscar.  He is very happy when he plays with little motor cars, driving them over the furniture. I must admit I created this simply layout from a sketch on Pinterest for our up coming Team Retreat. I wanted to use the great set Eastern Beauty Bundle. Fifteen of us have to create this layout quickly so thought this highlighted the happy snaps with a less is better layout. A few punched circles, a little stamping, bigshot work, little bit of tearing the Designer Series Paper and a small shaker.

Full layout, so simply but effective.
Little shaker to have some fun with.
Highlight the HAPPY in your life.

Enjoy the Blog Hop and thanks for stopping by.  Click on the next button below to keep hopping on - and visit Kelly's blog.
