For challenge #5, we are going to be doing a Sunburst Card and our video tutorial is brought to you

This is fast becoming a favorite card design online. 
Here are the inspiration cards done by the SBC design team...

Tip: Having designer paper in different colors and designs handy to have on hand i.e. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, etc for different holidays.

Tip: Emboss some of the panels to add texture.

Tip: What a great project to use those pieces of paper in your stash scrap bin that you just can't bare to part with. I also have one additional tip - when I see a particular technique, I have an index card close by to write down all the dimensions along with the website that I can always refer back to the website if I need to.

Cindy- In Love with PAPER
TiP:  Use up some of your 'ugly' paper by using it as the base that you glue all the triangles onto--nobody will see it :-)

Sandy~ A Working Moms Joy
Tip: Paper Pack scraps are great to work with because the papers and colors all coordinate. Just put you scraps in a baggie for when you want your papers to "match" like my two examples.
Tip:  Add twine to give your card some interest and texture

Teresa from Fresh and Renewed
Tip: Keep a variety of Cricut cuts handy to use as quick card embellishments.

Tip: Its good to keep matching scraps separate from your other scraps so when you want to make the sunburst card you can have it ready to go.

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!

Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System Review

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: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
