IT’S A ZIG ZAG FOLD + VIDEO!

Have you made a Zig Zag Fold Card before? They are so easy and fun. The great thing I love about this fold too is that you get to see both sides of the gorgeous paper. Who really wants to hide one side away!

Here is the card.

Don’t forget the inside when you make one.

I have used the Hues of Happiness Paper. So pretty! And with the Happiness Abounds Bundle.

You can catch the video now below to make your own.

Follow along with the video for the measurements or they will be sent out in next week’s Newsletter. Have you subscribed yet? I send out a different Tutorial each week. Some projects I haven’t shared before on Facebook or on my blog. Click on the link in the Right Hand Column on my Blog.

A DOTTY PEEKABOO WINDOW CARD WITH IRRESISTIBLE BLOOMS!

Today is a great Fold card with a little interesting window. It makes such a fun addition. And I have a video to share some tips when you create it.

I have used the Irresistible Blooms Bundle and Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper.

This is the card.

Don’t you just love that “dotty” strip. It’s so cool!

And for the inside of the card.

Just a tip with this paper. The Paper colours include Pretty Peacock and Lost Lagoon. These were current as In Colors a few years back.

Why have they included these now???

Well they are coming back. Yes! They will be part of the Regular Colour Collections starting in the new catalogue in May.

Watch out! It looks like a little Colour Refresh is happening. More on that in the coming weeks. It will be all revealed on the 29th March.

I share a tip in this video. If you don’t have the those colours as yet. I found using the Evening Evergreen and stamping off one time. It matched so close. But Evening Evergreen will be going at the end of this current catalogue. It’s a good short term fix for now.

So watch the video below. (If you are catching this in an email post and the video doesn’t show, head to my blog directly Or head to my Youtube Channel (HERE) and view the video there.

If you haven’t subscribed already to my Youtube Channel I would love for you to. You will keep up with all those crafty videos that you can go back to anytime. Thanks for that.

Happy Crafting,

AROUND THE BEND WITH DAINTY FLOWERS + VIDEO!

I have had more fun playing with the Around the Bend Bundle. I’m loving these stamps and dies.

Today’s project comes with a video with 9+ Tips in using this bundle when putting together this card.

The paper is the gorgeous Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper available for Sale-A-Bration. I love the pretty prints in this paper and I think it works so well.

Here is the card.

TOP PICKS FROM 2022!

It’s been another busy year of crafting here. Thanks for following me along.

I thought I would take a few minutes and share my favourite projects from the past year. So come on a little journey with me. And click on the heading of the project to take you back to the original post and read more about them. Even catch the video of many of them.

Friendly Hello Fun Fold

I loved this gorgeous Friendly Hello Paper available for Sale-A-Bration in January. And this is great fold to show both sides of the gorgeous paper. (Must try that again).

Driving By Slider Card

This was a great stamp set to create a Slider card. But you can try this with any of your stamps. What about that Sunshine and Rainbows paper. So bright and Happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Waves of Inspiration (Moon Effect)

I have loved creating with the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and I was so excited when I discovered how to create the moon effect with the stamps.

Half Fold Let’s Set Sail

Let’s face it – Male cards are hard to make aren’t they?? We had a great Masculine Cards Class earlier in the year. The Let’s Set Sail stamps and punch were fun to use.

Wild and Sweet Watercolouring

The Wild and Sweet Stamp set was one of my top picks from the new catalogue in May. I don’t do a lot of colouring but I loved colouring this cute Koala. I shared some tips colouring this image in the video for this card.

Tunnel Cards with Hues of Happiness

The Hues of Happiness was another of my top picks from the catalogue. I think many people also loved this suite. The Tunnel cards I created with this has been very popular.

Winter Crafternoon with Cup of Tea Bundle

The most popular event this year with the Winter Crafternoon. It was such a fun time crafting together followed by a Devonshire Tea. Watch out for more events in the new year.

A Pocket Card with Cup of Tea Bundle

Christmas Lights Diagonal Fold

Another very popular Fun Fold from this year was the Diagonal Fold Card with the Christmas Lights Bundle. Lots of people have shared their versions with me which has been so great.

Hello Hippest Hippos Half Fold Easel Card

Is there a theme here with Fun Folds that are my favourite projects for the year. I do love a Fun Fold card. This one was the Half Fold Easel Card with the Hippest Hippos Stamp set for Sale-A-Bration.

Adventurous Journey for the adventurer

Another great stamp set for the Male cards or the adventurer is the Adventurous Journey stamp set. We had a great class with this stamp set.

Merriest Moments Candle for the 12 Days of Christmas series

It was great to be part of a collaboration to share you some fantastic Christmas projects. I kicked the 12 days series off with my project, A candle with the Merriest Moments stamps and dies. You just have to go back to that post and start the 12 Days of Christmas to check out all the projects.

I hope you have enjoyed looking back at these projects. I can’t wait to share more with you in the coming year.

To lots of creating in 2022. Come and join in with me and follow along.

WATERCOLOURING WITH PAINTED POPPIES + VIDEO!

Did you know it’s World Watercolouring Month?? A month of celebrating and sharing all things watercolouring.

I’m no expert at watercolouring. But I have picked up some tips along the way. And practice makes perfect right. ๐Ÿ™‚

There are lots of different ways to watercolour and different mediums to use. I shared a video recently on using Watercolor Pencils. In today’s video I’m using the Ink Pads and Water Painters to create a watercolour wash and more detailed watercolouring.

I pulled out the Painted Poppies Stamp Set. I haven’t used this in a while.

Check out the video below.

This card was inspired by one in the current Annual Catalogue on Page 29.

I hope you pull out your inkpads and Painters and get watercolouring.

Have a great day,

Jenny
