Bird Ballad Double Easel Fold Card

Hello friends.

Tonight I'm sharing another double easel fun fold card. This time I used the gorgeous Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to decorate it.


I used both sides of this pretty pattern as they really compliment each other well. Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake are coordinating colours in the DSP. Calypso Coral is not a colour that I use very often at all, but I love it paired with the Crumb Cake on this card. The base is Whisper White. Using a stitched oval die, I fussy cut the sweet birds as the main focal image and backed that with a regular oval and then a scalloped one. I popped this up on dimensionals and added it to the DSP and cardstock layers.

The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake and is from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in the Beginners Brochure. If you love the Magnolia Lane Suite in the Annual Catalogue, this little stamp set is a must have. I used the ovals again but turned them to horizontal as I liked the look.
I made the bow with the Petal Pink striped organdy ribbon as the stopper and I added a gold faceted gem and a few basic pearls too. The remaining panels are just matted layers of cardstock and DSP.


I also added a touch of sparkle to the birds in the oval with my Wink of Stella pen.

I hope you have a go at making this fun fold card. I found the instructions on a YouTube video and just made a few small adjustments to my measurements.

Here is the link to that video.


Well, that's it from me this week.

As always, I want to thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon. x

Magnolia Lane Table Gifts

Hello friends.

I'm sharing another Magnolia Lane project with you all today. It was such a fun little creation. I made these as my table gifts to give to each of the lovely ladies that attend my monthly card classes.


I really enjoy giving a little thank you gift at each class. It's a great way to showcase products, and they are always well received by the ladies.

The flowers are made using 2 of the large 3 petal flower dies and 2 of the smaller ones from the Magnolia Memory Dies. I sponged around each of the petals with Petal Pink ink and stuck them together with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I die-cut the stamens in Petal Pink and attached a Clear Faceted Gem to the centres. I then added a strip of Tear & Tape to the back of the flower and attached it to a small cellophane bag that I had bought from a discount store. We do have SU cello bags, but not this small. I wrapped a strip of the gorgeous Magnolia Lane DSP around the bag as a little belly band and added the stamped 'Hello' sentiment with a dimensional. The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow.

Are you wondering what little treat is inside the bag?
It's a Merci chocolate. I picked these up at Aldi. I had seen an American demonstrator use these chocolates before and wished that we could buy them here in Australia - imagine my surprise when I discovered them at an Aldi supermarket!!!


They turned out so cute - I absolutely loved them!

And here they all are. I had a large group for my class that day!


I hope you feel inspired to make some sweet treats using the Magnolia Lane suite of products.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon.

Fun Folds with Magnolia Lane


Hello friends.

Today I'm sharing some fun fold cards using one of my most favourite suites in the Annual Catalogue. I know that I have confessed this before, so I don't think you'll mind too much if I share some more projects with you.


I absolutely love this double easel fold card, it's so much fun to put together. So much fun, that I made this and the second card that I'm sharing today, as the projects for our last class. Everyone loved putting these together and I was so pleased that they were happy with their cards. You could certainly add another layer behind the DSP, but we just kept it simple.

There are so many beautiful patterns in the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, that any of them would work well on this card. And the featured opening blossom, is die-cut straight from the paper with the coordinating Magnolia Memory Dies!
I added some soft sparkle to the bloom using the Wink of Stella pen, which unfortunately is difficult to see in these photo's but it looks really pretty.


Do you love the font of the 'Happy Birthday'? I do.
 It's from a stamp set that isn't in our Annual Catalogue with the Magnolia suite of products. It's a sweet little stand alone stamp set that's available in our Beginners Brochure. It's called Magnolia Blooms and you can order it separately or purchase the bundle of products that has its own unique item number. They are all designed to coordinate with the Magnolia Lane suite. If you're interested to find out more, just let me know and I can explain it to you.
I've never used Mossy Meadow ink much before, but as it's one of the colours in the DSP, I'm really loving the gorgeous warmth of the colour, especially for sentiments. Petal Pink is another one of the colours and here I made a bow from the 5/8" organdy striped ribbon.

Here is the second card.


This is a reverse easel fold card that I found on Samantha Clayton's YouTube channel.
This really is such a pretty card with the big magnolia as the main focus. I stamped the same sentiment and this time I made the bow using the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.
Your personal message can be written at the back of the card.


I love both of these cards so much, and the fun I had in putting them together.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing them on your visit today.

I have another Magnolia Lane inspired project that I'll be sharing in my next post.
I hope you'll stop by to check it out.

Until then,
Happy Crafting.😘
