  YouTube Tuesday-Z-Fold Pop Up Card

Pin It Hi!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards for YouTube Tuesday.  I'm sharing a video on how to make a Z-fold Pop-Up card that's so popular right now.  It has an Easter theme and I know we're beyond that now, but you can certainly use this technique for any holiday or event!



If you haven't tried making one of these for yourself yet, perhaps this video will give you the inspiration to give it a go.

Even better, make one of these cards with something recycled or reused and enter it in our challenge this month!

You have until the end of the month to enter.  For more details or to link up, just click here.  One winner will be picked at random and will win a great prize from our sponsor this month, Paper Crafting World.






I'll be back with another video soon!

  Smile- Kitty Bee DT

Pin It


Hello my crafty friends!



It's Connie here today to share a cute card using one of Kitty Bee's digital images. The gello Giraffe toy digi stamp is perfect for a card for a child or an expecting mom.


 I don't have either of those to send cards out to so I decided to just go generic with a smile! The bright colors and added sequins bring this sweet giraffe to life! This card is perfect for Spring!!

You can find him and other great Digital Images in the Kitty Bee shop.


I can't thank you enough for checking out my blog today. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  DT Day with Paper Crafting World ~ Birthday Cake Bear

Pin It
Hi Everyone! It's Angela from Mermaids & Monograms! Today I want to share a cute card I made using a file from Paper Crafting World, our sponsor this month! 
I'm going to be honest, I'm not a very good paper piecer (is that a thing?!). I usually go the print/cut route to save me some time! But I pieced this little bear together to try it out. About an hour later (does it always take that long!??), shes finished! Shes adorable too ;) 



Supplies Used~ 
Jaded Blossom Birthday Treat Tags
Jaded Blossom Luggage Tag Dies
Stickles Fruit Punch color
All cardstock is from my recycled stash. 
I have to use it up! The bin is over taking my area!
American Craft Ribbon

  Question of the Week

Pin It

It's that time again!!
Remember.. I want you to answer the question
 in the comment section too!
AND
if you have a question to ask for an upcoming week add that in the comments too, if you ask a question and I use it you will win a prize!!

Here is today's question!!
April's QOTM from our follower Bunny: Her question is: If you wanted to teach someone about paper crafting what are the 6 tools would you tell them are must haves? 
Shannon- Well....#1-definitely a paper trimmer. #2-tape runner. #3-I like to have a separate ruler from my trimmer. I think it makes things easier to line up your pictures and center them. #4-....I'm starting to struggle lol. I think I would say scissors for light trimming. #5-I'm gonna go with a glue pen of sorts. I think if you had those five things you would be well and good. If I have to pick a sixth item which it likes like I do :) I am going with a Cricut!! I love mine!! It's the best!! You could live without it, but I don't know why you would want to!!

Angela- Scissors, good card stock, glue pen & liquid glass, stamps/ink (has to be a good brand!), die cutting machines are nice to have if it's in your budget and I love my big shot and all of my dies!

Veronica- My go to have ones are paper trimmer (I have 1 in each corner or bag in my house), craft knight and/or scissors (for sure scissors), stamping blocks/stamps (basic ones at least Happy Birthday), rulers (nice broad ones, like CTMH or Martha Stewart's), Tape runners, and a die cutting machine (my big shot or baby blue die cutting machine/ basic dies, for manual cutting; or cricut for electronic cutting). My to go bag has scissors, ruler, paper trimmer, tape runners, stamps and blocks (mini inks), sanding block, and a variety of glues.

MarjiPaper trimmer, good precision scissors, quality adhesive, quality paper, stamps and ink pads

Kim-I would say start with good quality inks, paper, trimmer, adhesive, scissors and stamps, of course. But, my gosh, there's so much more I would want them to have to really enjoy the experience.

Sue- Paper trimmer, score board, printer, WeRMemory Keepers magnet cutting mat (helps me get things straight), Cuttlebug (or something similar) and a credit card with a very high credit line.

Connie- I have to say this is a challenging question for the girls that packs everything but the kitchen sink! LOL! I would say: scissors, adhesive, trimmer, my cricut, paper, pens.

So there you have it Bunny...looks like you are all set to teach your next class!!
Don't forget to message Connie with your address! You win a special prize!

Got a question for us...don't be shy, ask us!!

  Mermaid Gratto

Pin It

Hello there! I have a fun scrapbook layout to share with you today.
Our sponsor this month is Papercrafting World!  This sweet mermaid is one of her files.

Be sure to check out their shop online HERE
Visit them on facebook HERE
Follow their blog HERE for freebies and inspiration!

I originally was going to make a card but then I got to thinking and realized Ariel is a lot like my daughter.  They are both big time collectors of things they don't need but they love their things dearly.
So I made this lay out with that in mind.

 Isn't she great? I just love how she turned out!
