Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Origami Window Frame Card Video Tutorial


January 9, 2018

Time for another Watch It Wednesday Video!
I used a fantastic new stamp set called Life is Grand found in the Occasions Catalog.
I just love how that little butterfly sits on the wish:)

1/17/19 I found who inspired me!!!! It was Brenda Keenan! Thanks so much, Brenda:)))

I went to town figuring it out so I could put a butterfly in the middle square opening. Then, I did not know what it was called so I asked on a demonstrator site, I was flooded with answers, links to Pinterest pages, and video tutorials!!!

 I guess it’s been around FOREVER!!!I I was opened up to a new technique to peruse on Pinterest along with some very simple, no measuring folding tutorials. I kind of felt a little dumb after I asked- hahaha – but now I am enlightened.  I combined a few name suggestions and called it an Origami Window Frame Fun Fold. I made my video before I even asked my fellow demos for the name, and since I tweaked it for the size, I think it was worth it:)

That gorgeous butterfly in the middle is punched out with the Butterfly Duet punch from the Butterfly Gala Bundle.
It is punched out the ABSOLUTELY STUNNING Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper- a Sale-a-Bration gift with purchase!!!! Click below to see all the offerings!

Stampin’ Up Hello Cupcake – a Sale-a-Bration Gift!

January 7, 2018

Hello, Cupcake!
I made this sweet little card in my stamping marathon this weekend
getting prepped for my January Sale-a-Bration classes.
So excited to see my stampers!!

I did not realize there was a stamp for the “cake” part- I used So Saffron to make a yellow cupcake. Of course, I am already getting a ton of mileage of my Rectangles Stitched Dies- MUST HAVE to put in your tool box!!! I sprinkled a little fun on the inside, too!
