Last night I showed my viewers how to make the card above. The card is called a Z Fold type card and it is very easy to make. So kick back and enjoy my Facebook live replay.
In addition to demonstrating how to make the Z fold card, I showed three of my Paper Pumpkin Alternative projects. Below are still photos of those.
Witches hat and jumper
Treat box Measurements are 3 x 3 inch square of basic black card stock scored at 3/4″ all the way around. Cut up two score lines on two opposite ends up to the first scoreline. This will make your tabs. Place tear and tape on the tabs and fold in to form your box. Add liquid glue to your orange and black decorative pieces and add them to your box. Decorate the white tombstone using the stamps in the kit and basic black ink then attach them to both ends. Run ribbon through the holes and tie a bow to keep your box closed.
When you untie the bow you can unfold a little surprise.
And then lastly the Mr. Bones card
Thanks for visiting today ~ come back tomorrow I have another cute project to share!

Happy Fall Y’all,
My Paper Pumpkin kit arrived yesterday. I immediately sat down and opened it up. I was so excited, I could not wait to see how cute this months kit was going to be. I’m not disappointed, this kit is eveything I hoped it would be.
As usual I did not follow the instruction pamplet that comes with the kit. Instead, I created an alternative project to share with YOU.
These little gable boxes are so cute that I can’t give them away. Is that bad? I don’t think its to bad since the kiddo’s who visit us on Holloween will receive one of those super cute coffin boxes that Stampin’ Up! currently carries in the Holiday catalog.
Because I love holiday decor I made this project. These little boxes will add to my collection of Holloween decorations. Every year Stampin’ Up! comes up with the cutest items for each holiday, collecting them year after year has paid off. I have a good little collection.
Using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies I spelled out happy holloween ( these dies are sold seperately). Then I added each letters to alternating colored tags that come in the kit. When I was done I added the lettered tags to the boxes. I made sure to alternate the pattern boxes just to add to the whimsy. Next I embellished the boxes with the webs, skelton hands and Mr. Bones, as I call him. The embellishments are set into place using those super cute black clothes pins.
After Holloween when I put these boxes away I can remove the embellishments store them inside of the boxes and keep everything safe from damage.
This kit was so easy to use that I actually sat on the couch and made this complete project in about an hour while watching Doctor Phil, LOL!

September Hostess Code NYKQRBQE, The hostess code shown in this video is not working.
Hello friends and welcome to my blog. I’m sorry that I’m late but I got sick suddenly so I rested most of the day yesterday.
Watch this video to learn how to make Lollies for any occasion. You can tell that I was not feeling well, I think I made 5 mistakes, wow! I’m sorry.
To make a Lollie you will need:
12 x 12 Designer Series Paper of your choice
Foil Sheets that coordinate with your selection of designer series papers
Simply Score Board
Circle punches or dies
Lollypop stick or decorative straws
Dazzling Diamonds glitter and spray adhesive
Ribbons of your choice and embellish as desired
NOTE: Score your whole sheet of dsp using your simply score tool at every 1/4″. Then cut your paper into strips. After your strips are cut accordion fold each scoreline. When you have them all folded squeeze it together tightly to allow the score lines to be strong and tight.
If you cut your dsp into 2″ strips you will need to connect two strips together in order to allow the paper to form a circle. However, if you cut your strips thinner, 1-3/4″ or less you can use 1 strip to make smaller lollies.
Once you have the paper scored, folded and formed into a circle place one of your punches on top of it. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Having the weight on the Lollie will help it hold it’s shape until you are ready to glue it to its circle.
If you have any questions, please let me know.

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.
