Shutterfold Birthday Card for my sister Jeannie

Here is the shutterfold card I made for my sister Jeannie. She is a new Christian and active in her church, plus she has my wacky sense of humor so she will enjoy the card.

It is 5½ x 12, with score marks on the 2" and 4" increments from each end, and then cut from the first score to the last score 1½" from each outside edge. Then I cut the mats, found 3 coordinating papers for each section, cut them and printed my Christian one liners....glued all together and bent the card at the appropriate spots and added stickers.

run jump fetch

When your schedule is filled for about two months you look forward to the nights after work when you have nothing on the calendar.....well, except dishes, laundry and catching up on all that stuff. Bless the Lord, I am happy to have a job, AND laundry and dishes to do.

another 2 photos

One photos shows some of my paper and drawers for embellishments, and the dresser has a couple drawers of ribbons. This other one is one side of my double door closet, that I just cleaned. Most of the binders in the middle have unmounted stamps in them.

my art escape!

The first photo is of my "desk" with everything right at hand to create cards, scrapbook pages, and my favorite ATCs!!!
The second photo just shows the whole desk, shelves above and floor below.....crammed with stuff to create artwork with.
Hubby put spotlights in the ceiling above the desk so the lighting is perfect.

Look out she is painting!!!

I have been using some of the craft paints the people have given me, on cardstock to use for backgrounds on ATCs. What fun! Very theraputic too!

My workspace is in the basement. I have a whole room full of goodies, and a huge 'classroom' that has a big big big table which I have covered with newspaper and gone wild with the paint.

Here are photos of the set up, including how I hang my embossing gun on the wall beside the outlet, so it is easy to use! Maybe tomorrow I will upload some photos of the backgrounds and the card parts cut from them.
