50th Birthday Card

Greetings from Camp! It’s beautiful here in the fresh mountain air surrounded by trees rocks lake water…just gorgeous! Too bad the WiFi is so PAINFULLY SLOW! I won’t be updating again till I get home because of the SUPER slow connectivity :( But it’s good to get away and enjoy my wonderful family! I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful weekend!

On to the cards: I made a birthday card for a co-worker and I wasn’t sure how she felt about turning 50…so I ended up making 2 cards, same style one teasing one just cute

Papertrey Mega Mixed Messages Stamp set
My Pink Stamper Family Stamp set

Vacation Card for Miss Janis' blog PAUSE DREAM ENJOY...I'm so glad I found your blog!
I made this card using the Destinations cartridge. I have a hard time liking this cartridge. If anyone has made something using this cart please post a link in the comments I would love some ideas, it feels like such a waste to never use a cartridge.

Cute Froggie

This Froggie Card incorporates the card folding style I learned from a youtube tutorial by Miss Joy
Click here to watch --->Obsessedwithscrappin <--- I did however use an 8.5X11 sheet of paper for my cards. Miss Joy uses a 12X12.
For use with an 8.5X11
I cut paper at 5.5X11
I scored at 3.5 inches in from both left and right sides
Cut on diagonal to score line as in Miss Joy's video tutorial
Please leave a comment with your email address if you'd like a PDF diagram emailed to you of the 8.5X11 style.
