ATC Mini Booklet Holder Tutorial

Supplies to complete one Mini Holder with ATC backs:

(1) 12 x 12" sheet of double sided paper ~sample used retired Stampin'Up! DSP

(1) 8.5 X11" cover stock for eight ATC backs ~sample used River Rock retired SU.

Score the 12 x 12 paper at 3, 6, 9 and 12 " fold to indicate the lines and unfold.
Rotate paper and score at the centre (6" mark) and again at either edge 2" (this fold will become the ATC holder pocket)
Fold from the left shown here at 2" with the ruler for the placement of slit @ 9"
Mark from either end at the 9" mark and cut slit as shown.
Fold entire section over to the left as shown. The section at the top area (remaining section that was not cut) becomes the joining pocket. This photo shows the joining area.
I used a strong double stick adhesive in a narrow strip so as to keep the pocket opening free and clear for the ATC's below shows the area for adhesive when you are creating the join for the accordian strip.

Opposite side of 2"strip showing the ATC pocket flap.

For ATC pockets: Cut a 3.5" x 11" strip, twice from the cardstock. Turn and cut into 2.5" lengths which yields 8 ATC pieces to fit into your pockets. Decorate with ATC's or special photos & momento's.

SU Fall-Winter Catalogue Launch Party Project!

We are expecting a full evening of fun and inspiration...this is the project planned so far ;o} (not exactly as shown) I will probably use a roller that isn't on the current Retired List so as not to tease you.....but I can't promise about the ribbon! I just adore the softness of the River Rock and I had two more spools come in today! I have plans for card kits....I just checked the Retired Accessories List and it's still available!

To Tease You! Beautiful Bella Paper

Hi Everyone ~ I am sharing this card idea I worked up today (I purchased an instruction sheet from this SU demonstrator Aly Schilling) and changed up the colors and the design a little to use the new Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and one of the new papers from the Bella Rose DSP to share with all of you for a stamping get-together workshop.

More Scallop Card Fun!

Same little card, this time with Tangerine Tango ~ it's gorgeous! I used my new spool of River Rock (the only colour not sold out) go figure, I love it, kind of taupe coloured. Stamp set Bloomin Beautiful EDIT to SAY! it is in the new catty!!(no longer available) I used the Very Vanilla Craft Ink again. It's still a bit finicky but worth the effort to get it perfect. The little flowers are from the Boho Punch & stamped with the One Of A Kind stamps.
