This week for our design team challenge we were challenged to make a card using a fun fold. I decided to do the joy fold since I have done a side step a few weeks ago. This fold is really easy. I really dont know why it is considered a fold though. Because really it is more like two cards just put together. If you want you can make this a different size I did this for a younger kid and I think the bigger the card the better for a kid. :) Ok so first if you have double sided paper that is the best I didnt so its a little more work. First cut a 12x6 and fold in half. next cut another piece at 4x8 and fold that in half. Next put some glue on the one side of the 4x8 and glue it to the other folded card. I then put a happy birthday dye cut I had that came with this paper and glued that on the front also a small flower. Last glue a ribbon around the card just right to where the 4x8 card ends so you can tie a bow but then still be able to open it. This was easy and way fun. Sometimes it is hard to read directions and totally get what to do so I think if you need any help youtube search for a joy fold and you will see just how easy it can be. You can also make it way more detailed its up to you. Have a great week!!!!

This week for our design team project we are going to all do thankful projects. I am very thankful for all my friends and family and with such great friends and family you need lots of thank you cards. So for my project I did some very simple but beautiful thank you cards. They were fun and they will be great for about anything. I made a few different sizes as well because of this I will not put a recipe up for all of them so if you would like a recipe for one let me know it was very simple. just some cardstock, ribbon, and tape. :) I hope you all enjoy and really do something like this when you have some spare time. It is always nice to have a few thank you cards made already for when you dont have time to make one. :) enjoy the rest of your week because the holidays are coming and its going to get busy!!!

Today for our design team project we were to make any halloween treat. This was a really fun project and I got to try something I have been wanting to try for a while. I used the Wrap it up cartridge for this box. I cut the box and the spider at 8.5 inches that is about as big as you can get it on a 12x12 mat but if you have a 12x24 then you could do it a little bigger. This box cut so easy and its not hard to figure out where you need to fold and glue.I really enjoyed making this box it was really easy and didnt take a lot of time so if you need to make a lot of them this is a good project for you!!!! Hope you all enjoy. Have a great weekend!!!

So I am trying out for the design team over at My Craft Spot. Wish me luck!!!! For my project I did a birthday card with one of my favorite disney characters. Thumper Is cut at 4 inch and my card is a 5x7. I also used a little ribbon for some more girly touch and pop dots and glitter. I really enjoyed making this card even though thumper was actually pretty hard to put together lots of small cuts. Well everyone wish me luck!!!!!
For my cricutless project I decided to do this cute dry erase board. It is so cute and one of the fastest and easiest projects I have done. First you just need to get a picture frame that you like. Next your favorite paper. Cut the paper to the size of the frame in my case it was 10x8. Place the paper inside the frame and use a dry erase marker to write on the front. That is it your done. Hope you all enjoy this.
