Today's idea's

I am more an idea's person I find it hard to finish things off.
I dont mind if anyone wants to use my idea's but it would be nice if they could show me what they did.

Box with circular opening.

1.Cut a sheet of A4 in half.
2. score 1 inch from each edge on each piece to form sides.
3. I cut a hole with a sizzix die but you can cut any shape just save the bottom to use as a support for the base.
4. Stick sides together and add base.

Any problems just ask.

1. Cut a sheet of A4 in half and make half into gatefold card.
2.Score the other half 1 inch from each side and the middle section is 4 inches.
If you want the card just to stand as a frame just stick the second card inside the gatefold card if you want it to fold in and go in an envelope you will need to score each of the frame side in the centrr.

if the inside is 8 inches score on 1 and 2 and 2 and half then 6 and a half 6 and 7
the half score with mean the frame will fold in to post.

I hope to add artwork to the inside later.

I will go and add instructions to the other cards.

Had to try the blocks.

My friend Lorraine came to play today so I had to have a go at the wooden blocks.

1st try

I watched Dawn Bibby today and adapted an idea she showed.
I used 12x12 cut in half.
1. cut an apperture in center of top card.
2.Score 1 inch and 2 inch from each end.
stick edges together I scalloped mine like the card I saw on tv.
3. I added a sizzix fram to the outside of mine but you can add what you like.
4. the 2 scalloped edges can be pushed in for posting.


I had this idea while experimenting.

Made today.

I also had this idea when making other cards.

1. I cut a 12x12 for this one but I cut it to A4 and kept the edge to punch flowers from.
2. The sides are 1 inch and I cut a rectangle but you can do any.

I finally got around to making some cards.

Butterfly Twinchies

This months swaps on ukstampers.

Monday, 4 May 2009


I have been swapping twinchies on uks stampers and this is how I hope to display them. I got the frames from hpobbycraft.

1.Fold an A4 into a gatefold this is the cover
2. Make second page approx 10 x 7 and make it into a gatefold but scallop the edges
3. Make third page 9 x 7 and gatefold and make the edges fancy ie I did that edge that looks like a bracket.
4. You can do a fourth page 8x6 or just do the first 2 which is more a card.

I used double sided card.

You stick them inside each other central.

I have made a few and each is different.

You can start 6 x 12 for a square one.

You can add images words leave one blank for signitures for a card from a group.

Do overlaps of greetings or sayings.
