Fancy Screen

Take a look at my swap for our Luv2StampGA team meeting last weekend!

    Fancy Screen Card in Perfect Plum

The idea can from Ann's Happy Stamper UTube. In her video, she had an inch in the top and bottom of the card. Here is an Emerald Envy card like that before punching the "feet".
After adding the Feet I found it was not very stable.

First Card in Emerald Envy with an inch at the top and bottom
Perfect Plum with "Feet"

So I changed the score line to 1/2 inch and 1 1/2 inches for a more stable footing. In the directions you can see that I used the Avant Garden and Delicate Details stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration (SAB).
Side Panels in Perfect Plum and Emerald Envy
BASE: 6.5 x 11; SCORE long side 2.75, 5.5, 8.25; 1.5, 9.5 short side 1.5 and 6.0
Punch DECOATIVE LABEL PUNCH in the center of each of the 4 panels (half way up the punch) on 1.5” border.

CUT BASE between the 1.5 and 9.5 score marks

And I'm Back......

     It has been about two years since I updated this Blogger site and many things have changed! The two most important are that I have retired from teaching school but have continued as a Stampin'Up!demonstrator. My business has been slow going but lots of fun.  I have enjoyed learning and sharing with people close to me.  I have also moved and am beginning to settle in my new location.  I am closer to my youngest daughter (She lives just across the lake! Too bad we don't have boats and there is no bridge. So she is actually about 20 minutes away (fifteen if she is driving). I have a church family and a group of 6 to 8 single lady friends (from several churches in the area) that I spend time with as well.

I ask that you all have a blessed 2017 and join me in my new endeavors.
