Last month, the lovely Sarah Hamer (and Mr. Pink and children) came to Michaels to do a Make-it-Take-it at my request. We had several ladies come and create!!
Sarah pre-cut and scored the papers for our mini card folder and card set. This gave everyone more time to select a stamp set to use :)
While she gave instruction and advice, I got to spend a little time with her cute kids!!! Alexis and Jaxen made me some super cute pictures. Alexis showed me a sneak peek of her very first stamp set she designed for PBD (on sale now BUTTERFLY KISSES).
Here is my awesome boss and friend posing with Sarah and I.
I modified my set a little bit. Sarah brought dark purple cardstock. I wanted mine a tad bit larger (I write big) and I made two extra cards.
I used her Girlfriends stamp set on my cards.
The measurements I used are:
5 1/2 x 4 1/2
Scored at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8 for the spine
Scored at 2 3/4 for the pocket
Score on the fold lines.
The note card is sized to 2 1/4 x 4 1/2. The white cardstock is 2 x 1 3/4 and the dark purple is 4 x 4 1/16.
Here is my folder cover. I used PBD Girlfriend stamp set.
The white cardstock is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and the dark purple is 4 1/2 x 4 1/2.
Once I scored and folded the folder (that sounds funny), I used my ATG gun to glue the spine and both edges. I also added the hearts inside.
Here are my cards going into the pockets.
We used some purple twine to tie it closed.
Are you ready for the BEST PART?!?

Some of the ladies made sets for their children's teachers, beach or coffee sets for friends, and fun mani pedi sets for herself!! What theme would you make?
