How to Make 2 Different Cards from1 Layout

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes we see a card that we just love, but we may not have those supplies or it may not be for the occasion we need at that time. In today’s video I have created a card layout using it to create a valentine card for one and a birthday card for the second.

2023 Flip Over Desk Calendar ~ Valentine Hearts

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Once again I enjoyed designing and making my flip over calendar for 2023, with the help of my friend, Elly – while she was visiting from the UK in October. . As I have done for the last few years I am going to be sharing one at the start of each month. This was designed for a stamp camp in early December 2022, we had such fun making them and my ladies have made me promise to do another for 2024

I am changing things a little for this year, I recognise not everyone is into making 3D items so have created a card for each month, using elements from the calendar for that month. .

Country Bouquet Valentine Fun Fold Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I can hardly believe we are in the last full week of January….. already! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so it is time to rustle up some cards to share with friends and loved ones.

My fold today, is one I call a Lazy Z fold – basically because the front of the card is folded back on itself giving a lopsided Z shape, but lop-sided does not sound as good a lazy – so hence its name 🙂
