Center Stair Step Card

I love to fold cards in a different manner and stair step cards are one of those fun little cards you can do that pack a big punch! ok a WOW!!!
I love side stair step cards - but this one is fun too - to showcase a center image - here are the directions from Split Coast Stampers and it is relatively easy - two cuts and some folding.
However it did not fit into a standard A2 envelope - so I adjusted the measurement and created this pattern.

Here is the finished card and a quick video

Baseball theme mini album for my nephew

I made this for my nephew who started playing baseball this summer.
I create the cover and pocket pages and hope you will enjoy this video it as much as I loved making it.

I used the Cricut baseball solution cartridge to cut the phrases, the ball players and the scoreboard. I bought the stickers and paper at Michael's, the border punches are EK success and the mads are from Spellbinder dies.

Here is another Crochet necklace.
I used one bead to accent and a different toggle clasp I got at Michael's; brush hammered gold and a engraved crimping bead. (I'll trim those ends closer)

Sisterhood of crafters - Give Thanks

Here is a card for my MIL from my boys as a response to their graduation gifts.

I am entering this in the Sisterhood of Crafters weekly challenge "Give Thanks" and Cute Card Thursday - going around in circles and Simon Says Stamp anything goes

I used SU embossing folder, Tim Holtz swirl die, Spellbinders scallop circle, Stampin Up Sentiment and the border punch from EK Success

Hang Ten

As soon as I saw this pattern at My Scrap Chick - I knew I would make a card for my daughter.
I hand cut all the pieces as I do not have a cutting program.
Inked the edges and raised some elements on foam squares.
