STAMPING IN MAY...

At the Saturday morning April STAMP FEST, several of the stampers began looking through some of my old sample cards, and picked out a few of their favorites. I asked if there were any they would like to make at the May Stamp Fest, and they chose these...

This is an old design, but brand new to new stampers...

1

This is an all time favorite... I told the girls we couldn't make it because I didn't have any of the little hangers. One of the girls told me she would shop until she found them... So she did!! (Thanks, Jacki)...

2

You can slip a mini card into the front pocket on this card...

3

...like this...

4

The scalloped circle folds over to the backside of this pretty card...


5

This stamp set has long since retired, but new gals chose it...

6

There were oohs and aahs over this one...

7

It is made from cardstock (11" x 5-1/2") and opens like this...

. . . . . . .

There will be a total of 16 cards to choose from in May...

FREE DOWNLOAD...

Two years ago (April 14, 2014), I posted a card that has been pinned around the world thousands of times. I didn't know it would be so loved. At the time I made a simple one-sheet diagram, but as it turned out, many people couldn't follow my meager sketch. This is the original card. I will call it CURVY GATEFOLD ONE...

Curvy Gatefold One

Today, after too long of a delay, I started over, making a new card and better instructions. I will call this CURVY GATEFOLD TWO...

Curvy Gatefold Two

This is how it looks when closed...

Curvy Gatefold Two-2

...and when opened all the way...

Curvy Gatefold Two-3

(I hope this tutorial is easier to follow than the other)

Of course, please email me with any questions you may have. I truly appreciate your faithfulness in visiting Polka Dots and Paper. The best things in life really aren't things!
