Paper Engineering Folds

New at SU! It’s the Berries!

There is nothing better than a bowl of berries or a card with berries on it!  This month’s New at SU Blog Hop features Saleabration sets!  One of my favorites is the berries!  This set is called Berry Blessings and includes the BEST designer’s series paper pack!  Join me and hop around the world visiting some great demos with beautiful Saleabration creations!

I designed the first blueberry card below.  Of course blueberries are one of my favorite foods. These cards just fall together with this set and the DSP makes designing so easy!  After I designed this card, I received two other birthday cards in the mail with this set.  I asked the designers if I could share them with you and they said, “Yes!”

My sister, Pam Burish’s favorite fruit is raspberries, so I wasn’t surprised when she sent me this beautiful card in the mail!

And then Sally Rudolph, another friend, sent me this berry beautiful card!  I love them all!  Thank you, ladies, for the great inspiration!

Now hop onto the next blog for more Saleabration inspiration!

CORRECTION: Cut Cardstock 5 1/2 by 11 - SCORE AT 1 3/4 inches, 5 1/2 inches, and 9 3/4 inches.  The first score line is incorrectly listed on the TAMS link below.

What's New at Stampin' Up! January Blog Hop!


It's time again!  Time to hop with a great group of demonstrators from around the world that are HOPPIN' with new ideas.  We are featuring items from the Spring Mini and Saleabration Catalogs!  I love the new Birthday Cheer Bundle.  The sentiments are great and quickly fill up an entire page.  The images are bold and easy to color.  BUT my favorite part of this bundle is the edgelets.  I have designed several cards using these edgelets and love how easy they are to use!


When you add a few pieces of silver and gold behind the packages above, you get a stunning card!  Or if you cut out the cupcakes in the bundle and cut out cupcakes in two different colors of cardstock using the cupcake thinlets, in a few minutes you have an adorably SWEET card filled with decorated cupcakes.  The above card uses gold embossing powder and many components from the Birthday Cheer Bundle.  If you add either a package of the black foil paper that has been carried over from the Holiday Mini or the Broadway Bound DSP to your order, you receive a Saleabration item free as a bonus!

Can't wait to see more?  Hop on over top the next blog...

The Impossible Christmas Card!

This is a Card we made at my October retreat.  Everyone loved it and came up with lots and lots of designs of their own!  What is nice is the DSP actually helps design the card and all you need to do is fill in the little box and add a sentiment.


There are some wonderful Utube videos out there that take you step by step through how to make an Impossible Card, so instead of me trying to reinvent the wheel, just Google Impossible Card to find the directions.  The legs on this card are cut at one inch.  For a wider leg, cut at 1 1/4 inches.  That will make a smaller text box though.  Below is the back of the card.  Try these!  They are addictive!
