Happy World Cardmaking Day 2017 :)

What will you be doing today?


What will you be doing to celebrate World Card Making Day 2017.  I have travelled to the adorable village of Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Village Paper & Ink. An adorable shop owned and run by the equally adorable Gina K..  She is hosting The Coloring Challenge Roadtrip so I get the added fun of spending the day with the wonderful Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker blog.  I'm so excited and this post will be short because I gotta run :)  Let me know if you have any plans?  I would love to hear :)

Have a great weekend :)

Fall Tea Cup Pop Up Card Featuring Hero Arts Infinity Dies

I love Hero Arts, how about you? :)

 I had so much fun creating this card this week.  It started with Hero Arts Infinity Dies and my love of anything to do with Tea and ended with my quest to make a stand up card that someone would want to display and not be so ready to throw away.   There is a video below showing how I created this pop up card, a diagram below that for what I like to call my paper spring, and below that handy links to all of the products I used to make this cutie :) 

 

This weekend I'm heading to Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Gina and her lovely shop.  One of my happy places.  See you soon Gina :)  Is everyone getting ready for the holidays....I'm starting to itch to make Christmas cards.  I'm guessing I will start at Village Paper and Ink this weekend.

YouTube Tutorial

Check out this quick little video to help you recreate it :)  I would love to see what this card inspires you to make.  If you happen to post them on Instagram tag #perkypennypapers so I will have a heads up to check it out :)  Bare with me in the video it was a little difficult to describe :/





I am attempting to create videos that are short and sweet and to the point.  We are all busy and my intention is for you to get as much information and ideas for a project in as short a period of time as possible.  This weeks video is a double feature:)  Let me know what you think in the comments below and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel.  It is much appreciated :)

Here is a diagram of my paper spring.  I hope they are as fun for you as they are for me.  Please comment if you have any questions and I will do my best to help you :)

Please share your ideas and project pictures in the comments section below.

Thank you so much again for checking out this weeks project :)

Have a great weekend :)
