Fun Fold card

Hey kids!  Cindy back here on the SBC blog today.  I've got an easy, fun fold tutorial to share with you today. 

TiP:  Once you learn the basics of this fun fold it's easy to change up the sizes to fit your digi or die cut image.

Okay, let's learn how to create the card base.
Start with an A2 cardbase.

Trim off  1 3/4" from the front right side of the cardbase.

Digi image is 3 1/4"x 2 5/8"
brown layer is 3 3/8" x 2 3/4"
blue layer is 4 7/8" x 3 1/4"  -- Score the blue layer @ 3 7/8"  ( you should have a 1" flap--see above)

Adhere all the layers to the left of the flap.

Apply adhesive to the front of the flap and attach the flap to the inside of the cardbase 1 1/4" down from the top.  Line up the score line with the right edge of the cardbase.
Adhere cardstock to the inside of the cardbase to cover the flap.

My Favorite Craft Tools and Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone,
Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.
Two years ago, I took a step back from crafty and downsized 75% of my craft room.  However with just these awesome tools, I have been able to get back into the swing of things and I don't miss having a larger craft room.
Personally, I feel every crafter should have these starting out.  They make creating easy and fun!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself.

Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise.

Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card.

The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements:

3/81 3/81 5/82 5/82 7/83 7/84 1/85 1/8 Next, put you…

Easy Mini Albums

This was a fun project to make and so easy! I swear this is the easiest mini album I have ever done. The best part is it can be a bullet album also for the daily planner people out there. A perfect gift idea.
Here are some of the pictures in my album, and the video is posted below where I show some of the products I used to make it and the rest of the pages.
