Project Tuesday - "With Love..."

Good morning and welcome to another Project Tuesday!! This week our February host, Lisa Cook, has challenged us to create joy fold cards. These cards are fun to make and can be designed in several different ways. Beate even created a wonderful video tutorial so you can follow along. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies. For my card, I used another of my new Aurora With Cake stamp from SCACD.

This is what you will need:

- 1 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock
- 1 3" x 8" piece of cardstock
- 2 2 3/4" x 4" pieces of cardstock or designer paper (optional)
- 1 4" x 5 1/4" piece of of cardstock or designer paper (optional)

Don't forget to hop on over to Project Tuesday to see what the awesome DT came up with for more inspiration and while you're there, play along with us and don’t forget to include your name in Mr. Linky so we can easily find you. If you upload your projects to Splitcoast, please include "stampsandsmiles" in the keywords. We would also like to announce that we are looking for a few more girls to join our team. If you are interested in a spot, please leave DT after your name and we will announce the NEW team March 1st.

Other challenges that I am entering:
  • Paperplay Challenge: Birthday For Someone Special
  • Raise The Bar - Be Mine Forever - This week's challenge is to use a stamp/set/item that you will never ever ever sell or give up. Ever. And we'd love to hear your story when you post your card. My Story: I came across these stamps on SCACD and absolutely fell in love with them!! The whole set is so adorable and I can never see myself selling these cuties!
  • Hand Full Of Stamps - Open The Fun!
