1 PIECE OF 6″x6″ = 4 CARDS. SEE THE VIDEO!

Last weekend I joined in an online “Craft-along-athon”. (It’s a bit of a mouthful). It was a Zoom event for Demonstrators in the South Pacific Market – Australia and New Zealand. It was a fun time crafting together. Isn’t it always. 🙂 (And that’s why you need to join the family to take part in these fun type of events. I always love to welcome new crafters to my JEN’s INK team).

One of the projects we made was using one sheet of 6″x6″ piece of paper to create 4 cards. It’s similar to a One Sheet Wonder which you might have heard of. I loved it and I have to say I have been creating them all week. It’s a great way of creating lots of cards in a short time – and using up that paper you have.

So today’s video I’m going to share with you how to create 4 cards from one sheet of 6″x6″ paper.

Be sure to stay to the end and I will show you the other card sets I have made. I would love to hear what your favourite is. You can find the Template Link further below.

Watch the video below or it’s now on Youtube.

Here are the cards from today’s video using the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

Would you like to get the Cutting Guide Template? Head -> HERE.

I hope you get to create these cards. They are fun and easy.

I will share the other cards I created at a later date.

Have a great day,

Jenny

THE DOUBLE LAYER DUO TECHNIQUE + VIDEO!

I recently came across a card idea in a magazine I was reading. I thought it looked cool. I wanted to replicate it with our inks and stamps. So I did! I put together a video for our Friday Flicks for you to see how to create it yourself.

These are the cards. I call it the Double Layer Duo Technique. It’s an interesting twist on the Double Layer Stamping Technique if you have tried that before.

I have used the gorgeous Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This works so well.

For this technique you will want a stamp set with a number of images. I can’t wait to try this with some other stamps.

Here is the video.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your qualifying orders over $180 AUD. There are only a few weeks left to grab this.

If you need to place an order and you are in Australia I would love to help you.

Head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: GS9S4AY9

or you can contact me directly.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know.

Have a great day,

CREATE A PINWHEEL TOWER CARD + VIDEO!

For our Friday Flicks today I show you how to create a Pinwheel Tower Card.

You might have seen these around. I have been fascinated with them and wanted to have a go. They are so easy – and they look so cool. You will want to try one yourself.

I have used the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle.

Here are each of the other panels.

It can easily fold flat. This particular size is too large for a standard envelope but you can create your own OR cut the panels 2cm (3/4″) thinner and it should work.

I have the video below for you or it is now on Youtube to view. I give the measurements for them in Metric and Imperial but don’t stress I have the measurements below.

PINWHEEL TOWER CARD MEASUREMENTS

There are a number of versions around. This one was based on Karen’s card -> HERE.

Tower Base – 17cm x 14.8cm 7″ x 6″ Scored at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm (1″, 2″, 3″, 4″)

Panels – 3 @ 7cm x 14.8cm 3″ x 6″

Designer Series Paper Pieces – 4 @ 14.4cm x 6.6cm 5 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

– 4 @ 14.4cm x 4.1cm 5 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

Hope you get to make one yourself.

The Tidings of Christmas paper is one that is reduced at the moment in the Paper Sale. This finishes on Monday. So not long to save 15% on it.

You can find it in my store -> HERE.

Have a great day,
