Welcome to my blog! I had started a new blog to encompass my husband's and my journeys, but did not like the platform we were using, so I have reactivated this blog. I am currently pursuing my Master's of Education, so I will not be posting much, but will display the few crafts I have been able to complete. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you find something to inspire you!

Designed 2 Delight Digi Stamp

This week, the participants in the Designed2Delight Challenges were able to decide which digi image they used.  Faith was generous in giving us a voucher to purchase the image directly from her store.  WOW, that was a very difficult decision!!  There are so many images I wanted to try and though her images are very affordable, we are having carpet installed in our bedrooms in a few weeks and I am trying to be good. : )   I think I will start my Wish List and treat myself to an early Christmas present! 

Back to my card that I had planned on doing earlier, but we had to paint one of the bedrooms to get it ready for the new carpet...DIY never ends!!  I found this great paper fold technique from Shelly's Images Blog and Shelly was inspired by Valita's Fresh Folds .  They both have very good videos on how to make these folds and beautiful examples.  They also just colored the edges of the top folds and added background paper to the base.  I changed that and added background paper on each level of the folds.  This may make it look like I just layered paper and not made the folds, but I am planning another card with ink on the edges of the fold to highlight the folds.  I do have 2 layers of paper under the digi image, if you look closely, there is some green paper outlining the colored image.  The golden orange paper is from the Background Fairy .  The other papers were from Colorbok Punch Outs-Bright.  The really cool image is Dragonfly Collage from the Designed 2 Delight store .
