Fun & Sun!

As we approach the official first day of Summer, I thought I'd share this fun 12 x 12 decor page.  Right off the start, I'd like to thank Sheryl Irving for her inspiration!  I put my own spin on this page and I hope you like it!

This decor page fits in the Designed Decor Shadow Box Frame, which happens to be retiring soon, so get one or two while you can!  They're available in Black and Colonial White.  Love them!

We made this project recently for my monthly Decor Frame class.  As we play each month, we create a seasonal page to insert into our frames!  It's been a blast!  This is one of my favorites we've made so far.  Ha, but then again, I say that each month!

I used an assortment of beautiful Close to My Heart papers and accents and had a blast putting it all together!

I used Glacier, Canary, Honey, Cotton Candy, Black, and White Daisy cardstocks plus lots of fun shapes cut with a few of the CTMH Exclusive Cricut Cartridges!

Some cheerful Calypso, Dotty for You, and Penelope patterned papers fit in perfectly!

Finishing touches of bling from Glitter Paper, Shimmer Trims, Sequins and Sparkles!

Hope you sail through summer with lot of Fun & Sun!

Would you like to make this project for yourself and purchase the Directions, Product List and the Design Space file I've created?  Please let me know in the comments below!

Tri Fold Shutter Card

The June Stamp of the Month "The Long Way Home"  is a blast to play with!  I really had fun making this Tri Fold Shutter card, however, I am not going to say it was a "quick card".  It took 30, yes 30, cut pieces of paper to create this one card!  We made it at my Stamp Club last week so I prepped 12 of them.  
That's a mere 360 pieces!  
It did turn so cute and worth every minute of prep time!

Thank you to Ellen Jarvis for your inspiration of this card.  

This is how it looks closed.

This is how it looks completely opened.

This is standing up
close up of the sentiment.

Here's a simple score and cut photo.

Folding is from left to right: mountain, valley, mountain, valley.  
Then reverse the 2 center folds just in the large middle section.

  There are many great patterns and videos available for the Tri Fold Shutter card found by doing an online search.  Just take your pick.  They're all good!
