Good morning friends, Before I get to far into this post, I want to thank everyone for being so understanding. Last week I did not host a Facebook Live because I had a rare chance to go see my middle daughter. We had a wonderful time and I’m so grateful that you all came back last night to catch my Live presentation. Allison thanks you too.
A few months ago I came across a card on youtube that I found very interesting. I just had to case the unique fold of this card. I wanted to add my own touches, so I embellished them with papers, dies and stamps that I have.
In my excitement, I didn’t write down the name of the person who I cased this fold from ( shame on me) and as it turns out I can’t find her again. I will keep trying and if I find her I will update this post.
I hope you enjoy the replay of my Sunday night Facebook Live, kick back and enjoy!
In addition, I added some pictures of the card I made last night plus a few others that I designed.
These cards are larger than the standard card they are 7X10 when unfolded. This design can use a variety of designer series papers as well as be layered using foils. If you want to use regular cardstock for your panels you certainly can. Just use folder to dry emboss it or stamp on the cardstock. There are so many possibilities, go for it. In fact, if you make one, I would love to see your creations.
To make these cards you will need:
One 8-1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. This piece makes the base and the belly band.
You will also need a 12 x 12 piece of DSP. You will cut the dsp up to make your panels.
Here are the sizes of the of cardstock and dsp you will need
For the belly band card stock cut to 1-1/2 x 11
For the front two panels and two of the INSIDE panels ( the ones on both ends) you will need 4 pieces cut four pieces to 2 x 6-1/2
For the next two inside panels, you will need two pieces cut to 1-1/2 x 6-1/2
For the very center you need one piece cut to 1/2 x 6-1/2
If you want to layer onto the base panels, cut the layer sizes down by 1/4 inch both by width and length.
Adding foil paper as the base layer and then dsp as the second layers is a stunning look. You may want to try that. I layered that way on the Christmas Card.
The inside panels are made from cardstock to save on designer series paper. I embossed the cardstock using the Pinewood Plank folder.
This card has a foil panel layer as well as a designer series panel layer.
I layered this butterfly card twice too, it adds a lot.
Below is a product list for the items I used to make all three of these cards. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Good morning!!!! Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting.
Today I’m sharing a project that I’ve been dreaming about for a really long time. It involves vintage luggage, chalk paint and the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.
I have a few pieces of vintage luggage that I’ve been wanting to dress up. I took this piece and decided to transform it.
Yesterday I painted my luggage white using Annie Sloan chalk paint. This morning I grabbed the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set and our black ink and stamped away. I colored the flowers in using Stampin Blends. Then I sponged all over the place using soft suede and petal pink ink. Lastly, I stamped gray polka dots randomly using the eraser of a pencil and Smokey Slate ink.
I think this piece is going to look great in our guest room, it wil fit in with a travel theme.
After stamping the handle I added a bow.
Here is a close-up. I think you need to visit me and take a look in person. Stamped luggage can be a sweet addition to your home decor.
Thanks again for spending part of your day with me, I appreciate you!

Hello there my friends! Welcome to my day of creating.
After my walk and doing some house chores this morning, I went out to my stamp studio and started to create. I chose to work with the Monster Bash Suite.
Last night I made a fall card (not shown in this post) and that got me in the mood for crisp days, fall colors and Halloween. Halloween gets a bad rap sometimes, but I happen to love it. I think Halloween is a fun night for children and their families.
I love fall decor, pumpkins, mums, leaves, acorns, pinecones and all the things that go with the Halloween and the Thanksgiving season.
My kids are all grown, however, I still decorate the house and we invite everyone over for Halloween dinner. Of course, we serve pumpkin pie and whip for dessert.
We don’t get trick or treaters at our house, but I make special little packages for the kids in our lives and we hand them out personally. This year I think I’m going to use my Paper Pumpkin kit to make those special treats.
I hope these cards demonstrate to you how fun Halloween can be. The first card I made I was triying to give the feel of a library in a old mansion. In my head, I could see a funny relatives picture hanging on the library wall. I named him spooky, he is a nephew, LOL! The books are a pattern from the Monster Bash Suite Designer Series Paper. The frame is made from black Foil Sheets and the Heirloom dies/folders. Dracula is from the stamp set in the suite and the decorative delicate design behind him is one of the many dies in the suites die set.
Candy is a big part of Halloween too so I made some poppers that will hold just about any candy I decide to use. The poppers were made with the same product that I used to make card #1 plus some ribbon.
Now for the mommy in me. Check the next card out. Isn’t it cute? Halloween can be adorable and sweet, it just depends on how you present it. I don’t care for the blood and guts or scary stuff, I like a sweet, fun and even elegant Halloween. Are you with me?
So this card says mummy, but when you open it up the true feel of the card is felt. The red heart stands out, it gives you a hint about what’s inside.
Mummy LOVE! Wouldn’t it be cute to send to your mom or to send to your kids? I love, love, love this card.
Here is a close up of the poppers. I used our new sparkly inks when stamping the sentiments. I will fill a cute tray or basket with these poppers plus a few more and use them as home decor. I start dressing our home for the holidays at the end of September so it is never to early to start creating.
Thanks for stopping by.
