Tri_Fold Shutter Photo Display + Video

Long time, no see!  I've been spending my weekends with Louisa again and last weekend we had her mommy and daddy, too.  We had a one-child Easter egg hunt - which was the most fun ever!  

The Easter egg hunt brought back a lot of wonderful memories.  Lauren's birthday is in April and many times we had an Easter egg hunt for her birthday party. 

I took a lot of cute pictures of Louisa and had been thinking about a Tri-Fold card, so I just put the two things together.  I've done a video (you can see it below).  Of course, I had to change it up a little!

Why is this called a Tri-Fold Shutter Card?  I understand the Tri-Fold - there are three strips of folds.  But what does the shutter part mean? 

Instead of leaving mine a standard Tri-Fold, I changed up my middle strip of folds.  You can see how to do it in the video.

True Story:  I've been buying my Copic refills and a few new Copic Sketch markers from Scrapbook Pal.  They've got great prices and I just found out that they have GREAT customer service, too.  I placed an order last week and a little while later, received a text from them asking if I meant to buy an Original marker.  

Well, No!  I meant to buy a refill.  But seriously, have you ever had a company check with you to see if you ordered the right thing?  I'm so impressed.  They realized that I always order Sketch Markers.  I texted back and they took care of it all!

How cool is that?  I just had to tell you that story.  (I'm not getting any kickbacks, but I just wanted to share my experience in case you are looking for a place to buy copics.)  

So glad you stopped by!

Easter Cards, Treat Bag + Printables

I've been having so much fun with Louisa!  I've had her three weekends in a row - which is awesome!  

Of course, I don't get quite as much creating done, but I'm happy to let it wait for a little while.  Being with my granddaughter is totally worth letting everything slide.
I did get a couple of Easter cards and a treat bag finished.

Isn't she a cutie?  All dressed up in her bonnet and apron?  She's a download, if you would like to create a little something with her.

This little guy is adorable too.  But, seriously what is he?  He seems to have chicken feet, but a duck bill.  Maybe he's a chuck or a dicken?  Oh, well....I still really like him!  He's a download, too.

Speaking of adorable, how about this sweet little rabbit?  He looks like he wants to share his carrot with you. 

I made use of my idea to create a ground with flowers (see post and video HERE) on the egg shape.  

These are the copics I used to create the violet bunny and the carrot.

Hope you are enjoying creating and perhaps letting things slide every once in a while  for something totally worthwhile!
