Artfully Layered Cut Front

Artfully Layered Cut Front 1

It’s another FABulous Saturday and we have a new super simple Fun Fold to share with you today. It’s my turn, and I’m making an Artfully Layered Cut Front Card.

Artfully Composed Suite Collection

The Artfully Composed Suite Collection contains a beautiful array of products, and although I did purchase the suite, today I am using ONLY the stamp set and DSP (Designer Series Paper) from the collection.

Artfully Composed Suite Collection

Simple yet elegant

This is the simplest fun fold card you’ll ever make. And, although it is so easy, I believe its simple elegance lends itself to almost any occasion.

Artfully Layered Cut Front 1

Easiest fun fold ever!

To make this fun fold, simply cut a strip from the front edge of the card. This allows the inside back of the card to show. Then, glue a strip of DSP to the right edge so that it shows even when the card is closed. How easy is that?!

How it’s made

For my card, I’ve taken a half sheet (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) of Thick Basic White cardstock, scored and folded it in half (4 1/4″), and trimmed 3/4″ off the edge of the front.

I embossed a Basic White panel (3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″) with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and centered it on the front of the card using Stampin’ Seal. Next, I stamped the leaf and greeting in Old Olive ink on another Basic White panel (2 1/2″ x 4 3/4″).

For the inside, I adhered a 1″ strip of DSP to the inside right edge using Multipurpose Glue. I like to use glue for this step as you want to line it up exactly with the edge of the card and with glue you can adjust it a bit if needed. Finally, I stamped a portion of the same leaf in Old Olive at the bottom of the card.

The Details

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the stamped panel and adhered it to the embossed panel on the front using Dimensionals.

Three silver metallic pearls (now retired) add a little bling.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this easy project. When you need a card at the last minute, it would be a great choice. And, with a different sentiment, I think it would also make a nice sympathy card.

Heart & Home Mini Album

Heart & Home Mini Album 1

Welcome to this week’s serving of FAB Stampers. This week it’s Leonie’s turn to share a project and she’s created a sweet little Heart & Home Mini Album.

From Leonie’s Studio

I love making Mini Albums and remember making a few in my early Stampin’ Up! days and thought what better way to highlight this gorgeous suite.

You’ll find the Heart & Home Suite in your January-June 2022 Mini Catalogue.

Heart & Home Suite

The Heart & Home Suite is a gorgeous collection of products. It’s so lovely they had to include two Stamp Set & Die bundles, Embossing Folder, Designer Series Paper Pack, Ribbon, Doilies, Matte Dots Embellishments, Memories & More Card Pack and Memories & More Card Pack and envelopes.

Heart & Home Suite

So many different products to use! For my Heart & Home Mini Album I used the Designer Series Paper Pack and the Memories & More Card Pack. I hope you like what I’ve created.

The Mini Album

Here’s my sweet little Mini Album …

Heart & Home Mini Album 1

You’ll need a sheet of 12×12 Designer Series Paper for the Album. Cut your piece in half at 6″ or 15.2cm. Ensure you place your patterned paper in your trimmer the right direction to ensure it is the right way up for your album.

Now taking your two pieces of 6×12 (15.2cm x 30.5cm) cut both at 7 1/8″ or 18cm. Ensuring the pattern is right way up, score your first piece at 3 3/8″ (8.5cm) and 6 3/4″ (17cm) along the long side and along short edge at 4 3/8″ (11.2cm) – this will give you 1 5/8″ (4cm) to fold up to create your pockets.

On the second piece, again ensuring the pattern is the right way up, we need to reverse the scoring measurements. So score at 3/8″ (1cm), 3 3/4″ (9.5cm) along the long edge and the same 4 3/8″ (11.2cm) to give the 1 5/8″ (4cm) fold for the pockets.

Heart & Home Mini Album 3

Let’s Assemble

Burnish all your score lines and assemble Album cover. Affix your two pieces together at the spine first. Then fold up the section for the pockets. Use your multipurpose glue to affix the pockets in the center at the spine and just a thin line of glue at each edge. Then fold your pages in.

Heart & Home Mini Album 2

dont forget to decorate the inside!

Decorate your cover as desired. I used some of the adhesive pieces from the Memories & More Card Pack along with some lace (retired – sorry I missed the memo when this retired), Brass Butterflies, Champagne Rhinestones and Baker’s Twine. You can decorate yours as you please.

Now on to the inserts

Flip through your Heart & Home Memories & More Card Pack and choose some sayings/sentiments you’d like to include. Select as many as you like and then go through those choices for your two favourites. Then look for some blank cards to match for journaling or writing a note on.

Here are the cards I chose …

Heart & Home Mini Album 4

The cards I chose were the 3×4 cards but you can easily cut the 6×4 cards in half to give you the right colour/design if required. Pretty them up with an extra strip and some lace … or the ribbon of your choice. Those little adhesive die-cuts from the Memories & More card pack are perfect for sweet little accents.

I do hope you like this little Mini Album and it can be used for many different occasions. Give it a try and let me know how you go or if you have questions.

Cute Layout

A Cute Layout Trio

I apologize for the lateness of this post. I have been having internet issues. We are now into a new catalog, so some of these items may not be available. BUT, as you can see, you can use your own supplies with this versatile fun and cute layout.

Get ready for a FAB (Friends Across Borders) post today that celebrates easy crafting with a cute layout and cards that are fun to make.

Connie’s Been Busy!

This is a fun layout that you can use to create lots of cards that show off pretty Designer Series Paper and fun punched or die cut images. Each card looks different depending on the DSP you use and the other elements you add. This first card is so cute!

A Cute Layout Ladybugs

Hello Ladybug!

I used the super cute Ladybug builder punch for this card. I stamped the Real Red wings with Memento Black ink dots using the stamp from the Hello Ladybug stamp set.

All my cards today use the Heart and Home DSP. This paper has some pretty patterns and colours, and I love the woodgrain side to add just a little interest when I really want to show off other elements of my card.

A Cute Layout Dragonflies

Dragonfly Garden

The second card shows the wonderful bumblebee print from the DSP package, and I accented it with some dragonflies stamped with Cinnamon Cider ink on Pale Papaya cardstock. Don’t forget that there are only a few days left to get the last chance products like Cinnamon Cider ink and cardstock, and the Gilded Gems I used on this card.

A Cute Layout Daisies

Daisies

For the final card I used both the Daisy Punch, which is retiring, and the Medium Daisy Punch which will carryover to the new annual catalogue to create some pretty flowers for my card. The leaves are punched from Night of Navy cardstock using the Bough Punch, which will also continue to be available.

So, gather some pretty Designer Series Paper, some of your favourite punches, and get ready to create some cute and easy cards!
