One of my "resolutions" is to try new things this year when crafting. This time I choose Diamond folds. I went into Google.com, and typed in Diamond fold and found a tutorial. There's plenty to choose from. I have very little 12 x 12 cardstock, so I just went with the colors I had on hand. I did use my SU classic ink in Tempting Turquoise on the flower, taken from SU's "Because I Care", and then used my Garden Green stampin' write marker on the stem and leaves. Then I just used a sponge to create the look of patterned paper on the white pieces on the side. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "Teeny Tiny Wishes".
I spotted a post by a friend Crystal on Facebook that she'd create something handmade for the first 5 people to respond to her, as long as they agreed to pay it forward and create something for 5 other people. I loved the idea so I re-posted. Sadly I only got 3 takers. :( But I did send the three of them one of these.
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
