Joy Fold Filled Thrills

Happy Hootin Tootin Thursday!!!

There are TONS of birthdays coming my
 way in the month of August so I found this a perfect opportunity 
to turn up the notch and show you how to make this 
Joy Fold Fun card for our Thursday Thrill

I think its a great way to break away from the normally
displayed cards and show something 
down right Fun Folded! (giggles)

~ I also included a video tutorial at the end of this Post to better assist you ~

Taking a clean piece of 8 1/2 x 11 Not Quite Navy #101722 and 
cut down to 4" x 8 1/2". Score at 5 1/2" and fold. Set Aside

Next, using the remaining piece of Not Quite Navy Cardstock
cut down to 3" x 8" and Score at 4". Set Aside

Taking your chosen DSP (Inside the card I used a striped piece 
of Razzleberry Designer Series Paper #117155) and cut down to 5" x 3 3/4"

On the exterior of the card (above) I used International Bazaar Designer 
Series Paper #126920 and cut down to 2 3/4" x 3 3/4". 
The solid piece of Lucky Limeade #122926 was cut down 
to 2 3/4 x 3 3/4" as well and added to the exterior of the smaller card. 

All in the details.... you see I added a Birthday Sentiment on the interior of the 
card in Rich Razzleberry ink #126950 and included some 
Brights Glimmer Brads #121006. 
On the front I attached some balloons and twine in Cherry Cobbler #123125

I figured.... I couldn't JUST make ONE, so I attached another lil guy 
on some little treats I will give to my sister with her present. 
He's So Cute, you wanna Just Eat 'Em UP!! 
...Well at least the candies, they would probably taste better! (Buhuuhahaha)

Faux Silk-For YOU!

Hi Friends... Todays Techn{ink} Tuesday
Faux Silk

This Techn{ink} took less than 2 minutes and although I was a 
little uncertain about it in the beginning, Im so excited about how it came out. 

Lets get started

First you will take a clean piece of Tissue Paper and cut it down 
to the dimension you will need, I used a 5" x 5 1/2"

You can use which ever stamp you would like, but 
here I used Music Notes (#120327) with 
a little help from my Stampin Around Handle (#102971)
and dipped into More Mustard (#126964)

Once that was dried I crinkled and wrinkled it into the little ball you see
I unwrapped and did it a couple times to get my Tissue Paper 
very wrinkled

I simply unwrapped the Tissue Paper
**do not flatten and roughen out any wrinkles**
and I adhered to my 4 1/2" x 5" Very Vanilla cardstock
using my Glue Stick (#104045)

Once this was done, placing the card upside down to avoid ripping
I trimmed this portion of my card to its final size of 3 3/4" x 5" 
using my Stampin Trimmer (#126889)

After adding a few embellishments, I attached to a final cardstock 
of Not Quite Navy (#101722) cut to 8" x 5 1/2" and folded in half

Heres our final card and I enhanced the photo a bit to show the Faux Silk Detail. 
I think it came out quite beautiful. This card just sings to me, 
I hope you enjoyed this quick

My Monday's a bit Sketchy....

Hiddee Hooo Kreative Krew!!! 

Happy Monday.... 
If you are a daily follower you know that I try to at least 
post once a day on my Blog. And well....My Mondays and Fridays
 are kind of a bit what you would say "under construction".... 
But I think I found a solution to my Kreative Block! 

There are like a Million Guzillion Trillion 
blogs out there for "sketch this", "sketch that", "sketch challenge here"
"scratch that challenge" there & "pick a color challenge instead" ...

These challenges are all over the internet for every day of the week 
and by the time I can even see straight I've already missed out on it
(maybe you would say...that's MY challenge!)

Its enough to swirl you into next TUESDAYS challenge...

Anyway, I just seek a challenge to break me OUT of my Kreative Block at times and help me discover new layouts I would have not thought of
or color ensembles that I would have NEVER put together.

So among all these blog challenges I'm introducing my own twist
~My Sketchy Monday~

Looking over these sites and possible layouts I want to embark on new 
personal challenges and they might spark interest of yours too. 
Maybe you hit that "block" occasionally and could use a little help. 

 Here is today's Sketch It Challenge.  
Found Here
I created this card using a 6x6 card layout and built from there. 
Not too bad, but here was a challenge I felt would help me break out of my 
anti-layering funk. The card was fun
but I can Definitely see this best as a Scrapbook Layout
***What do you think?***

Rules To Join Along:
Anyone can join!! Customers, New Friends and/or Fellow Demos
Challenges Must be done using SU Product Only (Retired or Current)
Please Link back to MY Blog from your Blog Post
Please leave your Blog address below in the comment field so we call all view 
your layout leave you a comment.... and most IMPORTANTLY
Have FUN!

And if there is a Sketch blog you would like me to consider
please send me an email ( and I will add it to our Sketch Monday Roster
