Couldn't Do Without You

I'm a little disappointed that nobody commented...good or bad...on my new blog format...but it's okay! I just hope you all get your commenting juices flowing if you want to receive some FREE STUFF!! Be on the lookout in a few weeks for my birthday giveaway!

So I mentioned yesterday that I was able to make several cute items at the KC Regional last Friday. This is one of the projects we made. It was SO fast and SO easy that I might just have to make a whole bunch of these to give away!

This cute folder is made using the new Best Wishes & More stamp set. It's so versatile as it includes a stamp for all seasons and several saying to go along. I used only the bird stamp and the "couldn't do without you" saying for this whole folder and the cards.



To make the folder, cut a piece of card stock to 9-3/4" x 6". Score along the long side at 2-1/2" and along the short side at 4-3/4" & 5". Wrap the ribbon around the folder and glue underneath the front decoration to hold into place. Tie the ribbon on the edge to hold the whole folder together.



We made three different cards, all using the scallop edge notes which come in Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette & Chocolate Chip:







Finally, we made lined...that's right--I said lined...envelopes. They are so cute and surprisingly easy!



To make an envelope liner of your own, simply cut a piece of card stock that is the same width as the envelope and long enough to cover the inside of the envelope just a little past the flap. For these small envelopes, the card stock was cut to 4-1/4" wide (the same width as the envelope) x 3" long. Simply lick the envelope where you would normally lick to seal the envelope and insert the card stock. The sticky flap will hold the card stock in place--no extra adhesive needed! Whoo hoo! I took about 30 seconds to trim the edges of the card stock as the edges of the flap were slightly rounded. Voila! Beautifully lined envelopes that match the rest of your project (in true Stampin' Up! style)!

Happy Stamping!

I really like that card folder! Can I have the instructions to make that?! :) I like both versions of your blog, the one you have on your home page and the one on the other pages. :) I know the feeling of wanting to redorcrate every few months! I already want to rearrange our apartment but can't cause David won't let me! :) Miss you!
