This Gate Fold Card is so simple to make, but it’s extra special because of the way it opens.

Stampin’ Sisters!

Yesterday I went over to Anne’s with my box of new Stampin’ Up! stuff & we spent the day being creative & catching up.  So much fun!!

Here’s a few of the things I came up with:

Birds & Blooms

This is the first thing I grabbed to play with.  Best Birds Stamp Set & the coordinating framelit.  It’s now on the top of my Wish List!  That gorgeous paper is Blooms & Bliss DSP.

Foxy Friends

Foxy Friends comes with coordinating DSP stack & Fox Punch.  I can tell there’s 100 things you can do with this set!

Love You Lots

This Love You Lots Hostess Set is so, so cute!!  And the easle from Painter’s Palette… can’t wait to see all the ways I can use that set!


And here’s Anne, who had everything set up for me & made me a delicious lunch!  One of the best things about stamping with her was that when I’d get stuck, she’s give me ideas to finish off the card perfectly!  Thanks, Anne!  Fun day!

Now go over to Anne’s blog & see what she made yesterday!
