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.

Hope you get to make one very soon,

Do you just pause at a page in the catalogue and study all the gorgeousness on it?

I couldn’t help but stop at this one of the By the Bay Suite. It’s page 22 of the current Mini Catalogue. So much inspiration on one page!

I noted them all down so you can see for our Wednesday’s WOW! #145.

Let’s have a look.

Aren’t they amazing ideas! What are you going to try?

Happy Wednesday,

Today’s card is one from our Irresistible Blooms Class last Friday. I think this was the favourite by everyone of the cards we made.

The softness of the Soft Seafoam with the POP of Daffodil Delight is a good contrast. I love white embossed sentiments on black.

Another idea of this was layering the stamped card piece on to White card. It just gives a subtle background adding to the softness.

This card was inspired by one by Jaimie -> HERE.

I have been sharing a few cards with this lovely bundle. If you have missed them then pop back a few posts. I’m sure there is more to come too. 🙂

I have a card to share with you that I shared creating on an Instagram Reel just recently. I thought I would share it with you here today.

This card uses the Irresistible Blooms Stamps and Dies and the Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper. I have shared lots already with it. It is so gorgeous.

You can get a look of blending in the background of the circle using one of the prints in the Hello Irresistible Paper. You don’t have the mess with it.

What I particularly wanted to point out to you is the Scored lines. See them better in this image below top and bottom of the words.

To create the scored lines:

  • Stamp the sentiment. Measure the distance below the sentiment and above giving a little space either side.
  • Flip the card over. Using the Paper Trimmer and the Scoring Blade score a line near the bottom which would be below the sentiment.
  • Score higher up which should be just above the sentiment. Score another line just above that.

You can try a scored line vertically. Try a frame around the card. There are so many options. I hope you get to try one yourself.

The Irresistible Blooms Bundle and the Hello Irresistible Paper are part of the Online Exclusives available now.

There are so many lovely exclusive products.

The Online Exclusives can be viewed Online but can be ordered through my store or directly through me as with any of the other lovely products.

cards, Classes, Masculine


I have been playing a lot with the Adventurous Journey stamp set lately. It’s such a great one for the boys cards. It was fun to use this in class last week too.

I wanted to try something a little different. I have noticed Book Binding Fold cards around and thought that would work well.

Here is the card.

The outside.

The kayaker was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. For the sentiment I stamped the words on the Balmy Blue card and Crushed Curry Card. Then diecut them with the long sentiment die in the Sending Dies. It was easy to just trim them down.

I find that a lot easier than trying to squeeze a sentiment on a thin strip of card.

The paper is from the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper pack which is a Host Reward in the Mini Catalogue. It’s great paper by the way. It has such a range of colours and prints. Why not take a closer look at it.

This is the inside.

I think I will just have to put together a video soon for it. So stay tuned on that.

cards, Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!


This card is a great way of showing both sides of the lovely Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper. It would work well with any paper. Do you find it hard to choose which side to use sometimes??

I have also used the Go To Greetings Stamp Set for the sentiment. They really are my “go-to” sentiment set at the moment. This is punched out with the Double Oval Punch. I added some diecut leaves from the Splendid Stems Dies.

Now for the measurements to make your own. You can show off both sides of paper or it’s a great way of using up scrap pieces.


Card base 21cm x 14.8cm Scored at 10.5cm

                   8 ½” x 5 ½” Scored at 4 ¼”

Fresh Freesia card mat    9.9cm x 14.2cm    4” x 5 ¼”

White card    9.5cm x 13.8cm       3 ¾” x 4 7/8”

DSP pieces @2    4.4cm x 13.2cm   Cut at 5cm

                               1 5/8” x 4 ½”  Cut at 2”

Lay out the pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) on to the front of the white card.  With a short piece then a long piece next to it. Then below these, a long piece with short piece next to it.  It doesn’t matter which order though.

Flip the 2 small DSP pieces over to show the other side.  Adhere these to the white card.

Then assemble the card on to the card mat and on to the card base. Add your sentiment or embellishments as you like.

Hope you get to make one yourself.

I shared this card on Facebook the other day with the Hippest Hippos stamp set and the Hippos Dies and just have to share it with you now. This card just makes me smile. 🙂

My snorkelling hippos are swimming with their Green Turtle Friend.

The top scallop water edge is from the Scalloped Contours Dies. The clouds are from the Wave Dies. The sentiment strip is from the Sending Dies. The rest you can find in the Hippos Dies. It’s great how all these dies come together to create a fun scene.

The turtle is from the Whale Done set.

Be sure to grab the Hippest Hippos stamp set now. And you might like to get the Hippos Dies to be able to dress them up.

They are both available only in July and August during Sale-A-Bration or While Supplies Last. (Which could be very quickly).

They are available as one of your bonus free picks for orders over $90 AUD for either the stamp set or the Hippos dies. So to get both you order over $180 AUD and then have fun!

Or you could choose any of the other great picks. Have you checked them all out yet?
