I am multi-tasking projects this month! This fun fold card was a make and take at our Spring Into Stamping event earlier this month. It's also one of the projects for my April Stamp of the Month Club featuring the "Remembering Your Birthday" and "Birthday Cake" stamp sets.

With a couple of scores and an extra cut, this card has a fun fold that takes it from clean and simple to Wow! Make sure to check out my printable and video tutorials below to learn how to make this card.

Retro Fresh Peechy Keen Notecard Sleeve

My favorite part of Washi Tape is that you can tear it and it still looks great! In fact, the imperfect edge is how it's supposed to look! I used the Retro Fresh Washi Tape from the Occasions Catalog on this clean and simple notecard and sleeve.
The pocket for the notecard is a Crumb Cake Notecard size envelope. I sealed the envelope, cut the side off, and then punched it with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. Here's the notecard on the inside. I used the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set for the inside greeting.

AW15: Around the World Color Challenge: Two Geometrical Cards

http://aroundtheworldstampinchallenges.blogspot.com/2014/04/aw15-colors-couleurs-colores.html
It's time for another Around the World Challenge! This month, we're doing color challenges. I love the bright colors in this week's challenge: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, and Gumball Green. On this cold evening in Central Illinois, it's snowing. Yes, SNOWING. In mid-April. There's not much sticking and it will be warmer tomorrow, but I am so done with winter weather! The colors in this week's challenge definitely have me feeling ready for summer!

Big Wish Birthday Tag Card

I had a great time stamping with Beth and Kelly and their guests Sunday afternoon. I focused on kits and showed them how easy it can be to bring paper crafting into a busy life without taking up lots of space. I think almost everyone ordered a kit or one kind or another. The Hip Hip Hooray and Everyday Occasions Kits were the most popular. You can find them in my Online Store here.

In addition to sharing some kit projects, I also demonstrated a couple projects, including this card using the Angled Tag Topper Punch and Big Wish stamp set.
