Pick-Your-Present Lift the Flap Birthday Card + Video!

Hello there friends, 
Today I have a fun birthday card going to a young and new cardmaker. My friend's daughter started cardmaking this summer and has loved it! Her mom shared the "Wish list" of things she would like for her birthday much of it being crafty supplies! So for this birthday card, I decided to make it fun and interactive by making it a pick your present. Whichever flap she chooses to lift, will reveal a stamp company. She will be able to pick any stamp set she wants from that company & I will gift it to her.

Here's the card:
Which present will she choose? The blue or the pink???

Now let's reveal those flaps:
If she chooses the flap on te left, she'll get a Lawn Fawn stamp. If she chooses the one on the right, she'll get her choice of a Mama Elephant stamp. 😍

Here's a peek of the innies:

Thanks so much for popping in to my little corner of the crafty world.
Until next time....

Beach Week in Review + 3 Videos!

Hello there friends, I had a Beach week on my YouTube Channel recently and it was great getting to create several cards using beach-themed stamps from my stash. I created a simpler card and a stepped up card with an interactive feature!

Day 1 features the Gina K Ocean-Minded Stamp set

The larger card has a pop-up Adirondak chair. So fun!
Here's the video if you'd like to see how these cards came together.

Day 2 features the Hero Arts Color Layering Waves and Color Layering Sea & Sky stamp sets.

This set features a slimline card and a pop-up box card!
Here's the video, if you're interested

Day 3 features the Hero Arts Beach Heroscapes Stamp set.

For these cards, I created a one layer card, A interactive window card with an awesome brick technique I saw Vickie from Clips and Cuts do. I loved the way that came out! The third was another pop-up card this time with a pop-up beach ball.
Here's the video if you'd like to check these out:

Note: The Pop-Up dies I used are retired---I know, I know...BUT there are some updated dies available that are actually easier to put together that the ones I have and they are wafer dies, not the Bigz dies I have. You can check them out here ---> Adirondak ChairSurprise Ball.

Hope you're well and staying safe.
Until next time...

Custom Bookmarks with Tassels! + VIDEO

Hi friends,
Today I have a non-card project to share that I created for myself!
Here they are:
I recently picked up 4 books to read over the Summer (and beyond) so I made one bookmark for each of them. They feature the cute Lawn Fawn critters reading their own books. Each bookmark also has its own tassel. I used the WeRMemory Keepers' Fuse Tool to create the plastic pockets. But if you don't have it, you can get a similar look by using a laminating sheet through a laminator or Scotch Self-Sealing Laminating Pouches.

Here's a peek of the back- some cute critter bums 🙈!

At the Movies + Video

Hi friends,
Today I have a fun birthday card highlighting a day at the movies!
Here it is:

This super cute image is called Newton's Movie Night from Newton's Nook and how cute, right?

Every Summer, some of my teacher friends (many who are retired), and I get together for a girls' lunch and a movie date. We go somewhere nice to have a yummy meal and hear how much they love being retired! 😂 Then we head to watch a movie. I am allergic to chick flicks/Rom Coms, so if they happen to choose one, then I just go to watch a comedy or horror movie instead since those are my fave genres.

With Covid 19 and all the restrictions that come with keeping people safe, movie theaters are currently closed. But when the day for our girls' lunch date comes around, I know we will go back to looking like the three kitties above 😀 and having so. much. fun!

Here's a peek of the innies:

As the title suggests, there is a video which you can watch ---> HERE  or by clicking below 👍

Starbucks Inspired Drinks | Slimline Birthday Card

Hi ya friends,
Today I have a birthday card that is inspired by some of Starbucks perfect summer drinks!
Here it is:
I created a Unicorn, Frappuccino, and Pink Drink. Yummy, right?

Confession: I don't drink Frappuccino types of drinks. I am borderline diabetic so these drinks would probably push me all the way! I do, however, treat myself to a Pink drink from time to time. It is so yummy! This is what it looks like in case you've never had one. In the words of Ferris Bueller,  "It is SO choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up."
It's a dreamy blend of coconut milk and strawberry goodness 😋

Here's the innies:

Guess what? I have a video to walk you through the process of how this card came together.
You can watch it ---> HERE  or by clicking below.

Interactive Promotion Card

Hello again friends,
Today I have an 8th grade Promotion card for a talented young lady. But it's not just any ordinary card- it's interactive!- My fave card type 😍😍😍
Here it is:
I used a few products from Simon Says Stamp including this quintuple slider die that moves five elements at the same time!

Here's what it looks like when you pull up on the tab:
A sentiment is revealed and the graduation caps fly up! So fun! I would recommend that if you have this die you follow Jennifer McGuire's tutorial because her version allows you to conceal the mechanism much better and gives you a space for that hidden sentiment. You can find Jen's video ---> HERE.
