Christmas Ornament

Hello! Today I'm focusing on Iris Folding. Lots of people don't know what Iris Folding is. Iris folding can be very easy if you have a rubber stamp that has it mostly done for you. Have you checked the iris folding stamps at Stamp N Plus Scrap N? You can find this one, F-IR215, here.
Have a question, just ask, I like to help! Have a great day!

Happy Easter!

Hello! Happy Easter! I haven't posted in a whole week. I have been busy working with my daughter on her invention project for school. She is making a American Girl Doll accessories-clothes holder. Yesterday we made the bias tape for it. We made 26 1/2 yards of bias tape. Making that tape sure brings back memories from when I made it in high school. Back in my high school days, we cut our fabric with scissors, now we have awesome rotary cutters and a mat. Also folding bias tape is so easy now, there is a new tool that you put the fabric in and pull and iron.
Last month at Ladies Aide at church, I was asked to make up card kits for the ladies to make cards for the Shut-inns. Here is one of the cards we made. The stamp set is Spring Florals from Gina K Designs. When I bought this stamp set, I got a card kit with it, which was designed by Jessica Fick. I used Jessica Fick's card kit ideas to make my own, with a little different paper and colors but almost the same. Most of my colors are Stampin Up. The textured paper is made with the Cuttlebug Textile Emboss Folder. The ladies at church were very impressed with making this card. Some of the ladies have never made a homemade card before. The die cut shape is Spellbinders Labels Four.
Have a GREAT day!
