Welcome to my little spot in cyberspace where I share my love of papercraft.
2. Score 10cm in from either side, so it's basically divided into thirds.
3. The outside thirds now need to be trimmed so they resemble triangles instead of squares. I found it easier to just line the corners up on my trimmer and then slice from point to point. You can't miss! Once you get started this will all make sense :) No, really it will!!!
4. Then simply fold the 2 sides in over the centre. Adhere the bottoms if you wish, so the card doesn't fall out.
5. Insert and decorate the card (mine was 9cm x 9cm), and stamp or decorate the outside using the gorgeous Designer Series papers.
Would you like to receive a sample pack of Designer Series paper and ribbon? Just leave a comment on this post and I'll randomly pick the winner. Make sure you leave an email address or some way of contacting you. Mum, you may be the only one reading this but you can't enter 10 times OK? :) haha
EDITED 7th Sept: Congratulations to Felicite for winning the Designer Series paper and ribbon giveaway. I'll be in touch with you shortly. And a big thanks to everyone who left a comment!
1. inked it with craft ink (which could later be stamped on)
2. embossed (with heat and stick powder, then dazzling diamonds glitter)
2. covered it with paper and photos using ModPodge (this made cute Christmas decorations)
The notepads pictured above were a big hit. We made them for our little girls, as each of the ladies in Stamp Club have young daughters. We decorated their monogram with all that Dazzling Diamonds glitter - wow does it sparkle - and loads of ribbons tied from the binder coil at the top. If you want more details just email me. Thanks so much to Jenny Myerscough for sharing the idea with me.
My 4 year old Zoe loves hers. She is going into hospital today for a little operation (bit nervous, have been up for a while) so keep her in your thoughts today!
Happy stamping :)
The co-ordinating colours for both these cards are Soft Sky (the blue), Sahara Sand and just a touch of Old Olive (the green).
Stampset used: Bodacious Bouquet
Stampin' Up! ink and cardstock: Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla
Other: Lots of Stampin' Dimensionals for all those flowers and leaves!

I suppose scrapbooking is probably the most common answer, but how about decorating gifts? The box of choc's shown above was just wrapped in tissue paper, and then I slipped a 'belly band' around the whole thing which is decorated with flowers and leaves from Bodacious Bouquet. The matching card uses stamps from the same set.
