Blog Candy winner!

From the 100 comments posted to the 10-25-10 Blog Candy entry one winner was chosen at random this morning. The winner is Diane O. of Virginia USA. Congratulations Diane! Please email your full name and address to
FYI, the September 2010 Blog Candy never reached the 100 comment mark (only 44 so far) so I will be awarding that candy after a total of 50 comments are posted. Good luck!

Blog Candy 10-25-10

Here's your chance to win some yummy blog candy! Just post a
comment to this entry. After I receive 100 comments, I will
choose a name at random and send out the goodies. You will
receive my new Cloisonne Hand in Hand Stamp set, an acrylic
block and two sample cards. Good Luck!

Fold & Flip Photo Folder

Fold & Flip Photo Folder
Cardstock for folder 9 ½” x 6 ¾”
6 cardstock photo panels measuring 4 ¼” x 6 ¼” each
Scotch tape
Glue or double-sided tape
Up to eleven 4 x 6 photos for inside the folder and some for the cover.


Fold the 9 ½” x 6 ¾” cardstock in half to make a 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” folder. Set aside
Lay out the 6 photo panels on a table as shown (three at the top and three at the bottom).
Leave 1/8” clearance between each panel. Begin taping the panels together.
#1 Tape the bottom left panel and the bottom center panel together as shown. #2 Tape the bottom left panel to the upper left panel as shown. #3 Tape the upper left panel to the upper center panel as shown. #4 Tape the upper center panel to the upper right panel as shown. #5 Tape the upper right panel to the bottom right panel as shown.
Turn the 6 attached panels over and place tape in the same spots as on the front to secure and to contain the sticky part of the tape.
Turn the attached panels back over to the front again and begin folding the panels closed starting with the bottom right panel working counter clockwise until all the panels are folded so that they fit into the folder. Attach the folded panels to the inside back of the folder with glue or double-sided tape. (The bottom center panel is the one to attach to the folder). Add 4 x 6 photos to the panels and decorate the front of the Fold & Flip Photo Folder any way you wish. Enjoy!

Creation Destination!

Here's the gang at the first annual Creation Destination! event held this past Friday thru Sunday.
We had such a good time. Suzie Ingram and I put the ladies thru their
paces with lots of paper crafting well into the wee hours! We send
our sincere thank you to each and every one of you for making our
weekend so much fun. Special thanks to my wife Carla for making it
all run so smoothly - I couldn't do it without you.
Hope to see you all again next year!
