Flips and Folds Challenge

I loved working on this weeks challenge for Craft Your Passion.
This weeks theme is...

We want to see more than one flip or fold in your cards this week.
So get creative and show us what you've got.

This week, we have the honor of being sponsored by...
To make this card, I used a full 12 x 12 sheet and cut a 6 x 4 inch pieces out of the bottom two corners. Then I folded the sides in and the middle piece in half and tucked it up inside the card. When it is open, the card will stand on its own with a three dimensional piece in the middle.
I colored up my adorable fairy Tiddly Inks image with Copic markers and used pop dots to add her and the embellishments to the card. This project actually looks way better in person.

Ice Cream Sundae

This weeks challenge for Craft Your Passion is about projects using the chevron pattern. I used the bright colors from the chevron pattern to make this summer themed birthday card. The image is the "Ice Cream Sundae" digital stamp from Delicious Doodles and I used my Copic markers to color it. The purple tone on the glass was made with BV000 and BV20. I used bits of supplies from my stash to assemble the card and then finished it off with several little pink gems using my I-Rock tool.

Unique Crafters Challenge

This months challenge for the Unique Crafters Blog is all about how to use buttons. My absolutely favorite way to use buttons is by adding them to the middle of my flowers like I have done on this two page layout.

This layout was designed in a unique new style that I started doing when I needed to add different information and photos to the same layout for multiple books. I start with a paper layout and embellishments, then I scanned the pages and added the words and the photos digitally. The double process allows me to add different photos for a different member of the family.
