To a Great Friend Flap Fold Card

Are you ready to see a new technique on a fun fold card? I hope so! I have seen these type of cards for a while now but never tried one myself. My ‘Spring Fling’ ABsolute Stampin’ Club class this was the perfect opportunity to make one! It was hit amongst my club members and guests! I know you’ll love it too!

I featured the Painted Petals stamp set and coordinating Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper plus it went perfect with the Sale-A-Bration exclusive Simply Wonderful.

ABsolute HOW-TO:
Flap Fold Card

Supplies: Cardstock, Stampin’ Trimmer, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, 2-1/2″ Circle Punch

Step 1: Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool or Stampin’ Trimmer, score the 4-1/2″ x 10-15/16″ cardstock at the 2-1/2″ and 6-3/4″ mark.

Step 2: Using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, punch out a circle from the cardstock with the score line in the center between the 2 smaller sections.

Note: I followed a video tutorial created by Demonstrator, Julie Davison.

Stampin Blendabilities


BLENDABILITIES UPDATE: There have been continued quality issues with the Blendabilities Markers product line. Due to the nature of the defect (see below), Stampin’ Up! has concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that Stampin’ Up! is certain would meet their high quality standards and provide them with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.

BLENDABILITIES Q & A

Q: Will the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad Refill (item #133456) still be available for purchase?
A: Yes. These items will continue to be available for purchase. The Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad is my FAVORITE every day black ink. So happy!

Q: What are the quality problems with this product?
A: When the tip is welded to the barrel, the welding process can leave microscopic (invisible) holes in the marker tip. This leads to accelerated evaporation of the alcohol in the ink.

Q: Are all Blendabilities markers defective?
A: No. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended and I personally haven’t experienced the drying issue but am aware of it from customers and fellow demonstrators.

Q: What if I have Blendabilities markers that are defective?
A: If you ordered them through me, please email me for assistance. If not, please contact the demonstrator you ordered them through.

RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour – Memories

Welcome! We, some of the RemARKable Stampers are back together this month to provide you with a blog tour!

This month’s theme is Memories! We all have lots of memories and those yet to capture. I hope you grab a cup of coffee or whatever your heart desires sit back, relax and enjoying traveling through the blog tour!


For my project I chose to create a little mini photo album using the Half-Mount Wood Cases. These cases are so versatile. One idea I had seen a long time ago was to make an album from one of these cases. Well, I decided to create a memory book to highlight each of my daughter Jillian’s school pictures all the way through high school graduation. I am ABsolutely excited about it!

The Project Life Playground kit was the perfect fit for the front of the box. I simply took one of the 4″ x 4″ cards, trimmed it and then fussy cut the apple to move it to a different place.

RemARKable


When you open it there is an accordion type album. She is only in 1st grade so I have lots empty but you can get the drift.

RemARKable


I used the Back to Basics Photopolymer Alphabet Stamp Set for all the letters and it was perfect!

RemARKable


and then the back of the case shows off another one of the cards from the Project Life Playground Kit. This one was 3″ x 4″ and perfect size! I plan to write down what she wants to be at the end of school year. It will fun to see how much it changes over the years.
