What I’ve been up to

Just a couple of projects from the past few weeks and one for a class coming up at Stamper’s Alley .

This is the class I will be teaching in May – Paper Gardening. Lots of punches and not much stamping, but I just love the flowers and bright colors.


I saw one of these on Lauren’s blog a while back and she sells a template for it on PaperTrey, but I took a stab at making one from scratch and this is what I came up with. It may not be exactly the same as hers but I’m happy with it. It will hold six cards and envelopes, and may end up being another class this summer.

I copied these cards from one sent to Stamper’s Alley by Barbara Hammerstad and just changed the colors a bit. You can find her original in the Gallery there under her name. The stamp set is Flower Chat from Stampendous and they are colored with Copic markers. The ScorPal makes it so easy to do gatefold cards! I used to have such trouble getting the measurements right but it’s a no-brainer with this tool.

  5. Wow! Folks are going to LOVE making these projects! They're all just adorable! The flower pots are so wonderfully cheery. Well, the cards are, too. These are the best kind of cards to send, I think, because a person can't help but smile when they see them!
