Hello friends! It’s Karla here today with a fun card folding technique to share with you – the Diamond Fold card! It’s a really easy fold that looks amazing, and anyone who receives it will totally love it!
You can follow along with the folding instructions in the video HERE or click below.
I used some Color Burst powders to watercolour my papers, which came with a resist printed on them. The Color Bursts are so fun to work with – and it’s like a magic show every time you spritz them with water!! I used a pretty pink flower sequin from the Raspberry Daisy Dream sequin mix and stitched it onto my loopy ribbon bow with a clear bead in the center and then added some more pretty sequins from the Summer Sunset and Let’s Be Mermaids mixes.
I used some Izink inks to colour the Cork Confetti Butterflies in to match the pretty colours on the card. I love how the texture of the cork shows through!
Here’s a look at the cork and sequins I used today, which you can find in the shop.
A bit of butterfly paper peeks out from the inside folds when the card is taken out of the envelope. I love that it tucks small enough to fit inside an envelope and then stands upright on it’s own! You can turn the card over and write a personalized message on the back for someone special.

Hello friends! Welcome back! Sadly, this will be my last post. I have loved being a member of this amazing team and I will continue to use the amazing Spiegelmom Scraps products. Today I am sharing a 12×12 layout. I am using one of this months free cut files. I decided to shrink it down and printed it 5 times.
Hello friends! Katty here. I am extremely behind on my December Daily this year. I’m so glad I was finally able to get started. Today I am sharing Days 1-3. I have made a double 6×6 page spread. Since days 2 and 3 were very uneventful I was able to fit all three days in this double page spread.
I began with two matching pieces of patterned paper which I cut down to 6×6. They are red with white polka dots. For my left side layout I wanted to welcome back our Elf on the Shelf Buddy. I added some teal patterned paper to the bottom half. I also used a fiskars scalloped border punch with American Crafts white textured cardstock and some teal glitter tape to separate the two patterns. I added a lovely White Lace Paper Doily behind my photo of my Elf Buddy which I made round with a circle punch.
I added half circle stickers to the top and bottom of the page and I embellished with Chunky Cork Hearts and white flat back sequins from a retired mix which can also be found in the Happy Dance Mix.
I used white Freckled Fawn puffy alpha stickers to write out my tittle. My numbers for each day are also from Freckled Fawn and I embossed them with white embossing powder.
For the page on the right I used all of the same products. I also added a tag with some Red Bakers twine.
I printed some photos in black and white and some in color. I also added some blear phrase stickers from Recollections on one of the photos and over the patterned paper.
I’m really happy with how it turned out. Last years album was way too thick so I’m trying to find ways to slim it down this year and this seemed like a good option since there wasn’t much going on these three days.

Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. I am scrapbooking a selfie I took while on a weekend trip to the Island of Bimini. It was actually an island off of Bimini and there are tons of Manta Rays just swimming around. It was very cool!
I began my layout with a Prima scallop circle stencil and the Dazzlers in Sea U in the morning. I used the stencil on the top center of a White American Crafts cardstock and created a mirror image on the bottom portion of the page. I then took a circle punch and punched out different patterns from the Pink Paislee Paige Evans Take me away collection. I cut the circles in half and placed them inside my scallop circles.
I added a few sheets of patterned paper layered behind my photo. I also added vertical strips of one of the Pink 12×12 papers from the collection on either side of the page. I also added two coordinating wash tapes to either side. I used the blue and yellow sequins from the Hot Right Now Sequin Mix. I randomly placed them on top of the scallop half circles.
I added a few ephemera pieces from the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills and used the Indigo Hills navy thickers to create part of my tittle. The rest of my tittle was created using pink letter stickers from the Basic Grey B-side collection.
I used one of the 6×6 papers from the Take me Away Collection which had different colored stripes and I cut out the stripes. I added them in between my scallop circles. I wanted to add some of the lovely Cloudy Days Felties. I clustered them in two areas and colored some of them using the Shimmerz Vibez in Blue Jeans.
I also added some ink splatters with the Blue Jeans Mist. I also added some turquoise thread behind my clouds and on the left side of my photo.
I love how this turned out. There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/-rYBg-X5ims
Hello friends! Katty here to share another 12×12 layout with you all. I am scrapbooking a few photos of my younger son in our backyard playing soccer. He is currently obsessed with soccer. He has to play at least a little bit every day. These shots were taken a few weeks ago with my iPhone. They are a bit blurry thats why I didn’t print them bigger. I just want them to tell the story.
I began with American Crafts White textured cardstock. I used a stencil by the crafters workshop called Mod Checkerboard. I sprayed the center of the stencil with one of my lovely Shimmerz Coloringz Sprays in the color Heidi Ho Blue and I also used my Shimmerz Dazzlers in Gummy Berry Blue. I then used a square punch and punched out my 4 photos. I then scattered those around the stencil work to create my design. I also took some black and yellow patterned papers in black and yellow and punched out some squares in two sizes and then layered them on top of each other. I scattered those around as well. I added some soccer balls and words from a Rub on sheet. I love how they look. Especially since I have a hard time with very themed embellishments.
I then added black ink splatters in two areas of my layout. I pulled out the lovely Cloudy Days Felties in two sizes and painted the smaller ones with the Heidi Ho Blue Shimmerz Spray. As a finishing touch I added a few circle chipboard embellishments from MAMBI and I matted the whole layout on a black and white diagonal striped Patterned Paper from Simple stories.
I am very happy with how this turned out. There is a process video on my Youtube channel if you’d like to watch: https://youtu.be/y1K6mryN3dI
I then layered a few papers from the Posh collection about two inches from the bottom of my layout. I trimmed the sides so that my diagonal stripe border would show all around. The main paper has a big dog on it. I decided I would repeat the dog element since I am scrapbooking a photo of my nieces new French Bulldog Bruce. I used the same dog from the ephemera pack, the sticker sheet and fussy cut the same dog from one of the cut apart sheets,
I created a cluster up top using a tag I cut out from one of the patterned papers and a banner I cut out and wrote the puppy’s name on and yet another sticker of the dog from the collection.
Hello friends! Welcome back! Katty here to share a Birthday themed 12×12 Scrapbooking layout. I began with a yellow polka dot patterned paper from my stash. I used a black and white bold stripe patterned paper from Teresa Collins to back the layout. I only wanted it peeking out on the sides. I am using two black and white photos of my older son on his 12th Birthday earlier this month. I began by matting the photos with a few layers. I used the Black Diagonal Stripe Bag in Black right behind my photo. I then layered a few patterned papers from an American Crafts 6×6 paper pad. I also scattered around some stickers and die cuts from the Simple Stories Let’s Party Collection.
