Simply Scrappin' Friday

Hey! --it's Friday and once again we are Fabulousing it up over at the Sisters in Stamping Blog ( This week we are spotlighting the Simply Scrappin' Kits--this is the last week of National Scrapbooking Month. Here is my project--

It's called a Diagonal Double Fold Card. I used one of the sheets of Designer Series Paper that comes in the kit to make the pockets. I have a good friend, who teaches and she likes to read lots of books during her Summer vacation. I think I'll tuck a gift card for a bookstore into one of the pockets before I give it to her. Here is what it looks like inside...I used some of the elements to dress it up.
I took a picture of it with the bookmarks pulled out so you could get a good look at it--

SU! Supplies used--

Accessories: Pumpkin Pie 1/4" ribbon, silver brads, mat pack, dimensionals, mini glue dots, Petal Party Simply Scrappin' Kit. Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White.

See you next week....have a safe Memorial Day week-end!

Happy Stampin' Karla c(:

Flowery Fabulous Friday

This week at the Sisters ( we are making cards with lots of bright colorful flowers! Here is my project--

It is a pin that I made with the Real Red 1" double stitched ribbon and the Summer Sun corduroy buttons. Beth France taught us how to make these in Janesville at the last Quarterly Meeting. I made a card to put it on here is a picture of the pin off of the card and the back of the pin--

It was super easy! I stitched long running stitch along the edge of 14" of ribbon and then gathered it up to make a circle. Put the brad in the center and filled the hole with a medium sized blob of hot glue. I cut the felt circle with the BigShot and attached the pin back with hot glue. That's it! I'll be putting it in a clear envelope (so you can see how pretty it is) and giving it to a good friend of mine.

SU! Supplies used--

Stamp Sets: Petal Pizzazz (pg.113, IB&C 2009-10), Teeny Tiny Wishes (pg.145, IB&C 2009-10). Accessories: BigShot, Circles #2 die, Modern Label punch, Crop-a-dile, Summer Sun corduroy buttons, Real Red 1" double stitched ribbon. Paper: Summer Sun, Old Olive, Whisper White. Ink: Summer Sun, Real Red, Old Olive.

See you next week....make sure you hop on over to the Sisters blog ( to see what the other girls are up to!

Sweet Fab Friday!

Here is my card for today's Sisters in Stamping Fabulous Friday post (

I purchased an extra Final Press BigShot folder and took my craft and rubber scissors to it. Here is a picture of it--

You'll want to use a Sharpie Marker on it so that you cut it up in the right places. The original idea came from the uber talented Andrea Walford (
