Do you need a get well card?

Kleenex-Pop-Up-get-well-car

Do you need a get well card. I found this card, I think on Pinterest. I was in need of a get well card. I thought it was so stinkin’ cute, I just had to do one. My sister in law has been hospitalized with pneumonia which of course started as the “common” cold. She went in on the 23rd of December and was released only this week-end. Since October, our hospital has been closed to visitors because of the severity  of the “common” cold. Her daughter was allowed a visit on the 24th but not Christmas day and once or twice since then. She couldn’t even get the TV installed, because the person that takes the request form and hook up was not allowed on the floors!  Pretty bad huh?Roch went to see his sister and bring our card, but was refused visitation. He had to leave the package at the door!   .  With the cold season upon us and every other person down with it, I thought this was an excellent get well card. It’s guaranteed to put a smile on one’s face, don’t you think? So far I have been pretty lucky considering my dear hubby and son caught it. But it is hovering over me, just waiting for me to overdue so my defenses are down. LOL.

I wish I could take the credit for creating this adorable pop-up. But alas… no. I am just responsible for spreading it around…… just like the “common” cold.

I have been asked to share the instructions, so I will by tomorrow. Check back here then or if I am done today, I will let you all know.

So wait no more….. Here is my little kleenex pop up get well card. I made the outside quite simple so not to take away the surprise inside. You can make it any way as simple or as complicated as you wish.

Come back tomorrow. I will have the instructions posted with maybe a video tutorial.

The outside of the card very simple and of course there is a matching envelope.

As the lazy days of summer come to an end

As the lazy days of summer come to an end, I’m feeling a little blue. We are in between activities. Summer activities are finished and the fall ones have yet to begin. The grand-kids are back in school and our eldest grand-daughter is gone to college. We will see her only on long weekends and Christmas break.

I to am getting ready for the long winter. I am planning my online classes and clubs.

How great would it be to get the hostess dollars once every 6 months? All you have to do is place an order with me for 35$ (before taxes and shipping) and once every 6 months you will be hostess and will be able to choose anything in the current catalogs totaling 35$. Easy peasy! Contact me.

My first class was last week and it was great!

We made this gorgeous 3D faux book. The ladies had all kinds of ideas. This is my third. As you know I made one for our grand-daughter’s graduation. In case you did not see it click here. It even had a pocket for a little money gift. I made another so I could show the ladies and of course write up my tutorial. You can see that it here .

And…. here is the one I made for a Christmas gift.

 

Please leave me a comment on what you think of these faux book cards and please be nice.

My creative process Day 5- What’s inside

As promised, here is how I finished this card. It is not always the same. Sometimes just a whisper white layer on the right side of the inside. But, today I did something special.

 

My finished card

I made that mini album?

Cover-Page

Wow! I had been promising myself for a long time to make a mini album. I had made an easy one with the Simply Scrappin’ kits, but I wanted to really put myself to the test-soo I made this one. It did take me a little longer than I had thought. I had run out of tape and of course being anxious to finish I had on occasion forgot the basic rule of thumb ” measure twice cut once “. Anyway, got my tape finally but than I was in a crunch to finish it for the 50th birthday of our niece. So here it is.

On the left side of each page is a pouch with no bottom. This is used to insert the pages into the binding system. There are 6 pages to the album- 2 of style.

Leave me a comment if you agree that I my first mini album turned out pretty good.

 

This is the cover. As you can see, it is for a 50th birthday .
