Challenge #26 Anything Goes (featuring Joy Fold Cards)

Carolyn here with our next challenge which is Anything Goes - featuring Joy Fold Cards (there is undoubtedly other names for this fold, but this  I was directed to by subscriptions to splitcoaststampers video on youtube.com.).  This can be made in different sizes, so lets see what we can create with this easy card.

Our sponsor for this  challenge is (drum-roll please)  Meljen's Designs Digitals
 

Ready for the challenge.  Here is the video to watch...

And now to our DT's  creations showing this card technique.

Tip: Using Mono reverse pattern papers, place one horizontally and one verticallly to give a different effect.





TIP:  Rather than a square for the inside piece, I created a circular fold-over card. Try different variations.



Tip:  I created mine in A2 size (measurements on my blog) and made it horizontal.  Add a ribbon to keep it closed.

My Tip: When you are stuck with what color to use on your images, just pick out the papers you want to use and match up the colors with your pencils/markers.

My Tip: The sentiment does not always have to go on the outside!

My Tip:  Don't restrict yourself to the measurements given in a tutorial.  Use them as a guideline to make a smaller or larger version of the card shown in the tutorial,

 To find more information on how they did that, please click on their name/blog or the challenge under their picture. Thanks for playing along.
We hope these design team projects inspire.

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

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.
