Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Blog Hop for February 2018. Each month, members of the team participate in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects using the fantastic Stampin' Up! products. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

You are currently visiting Stampin' Sacha from the Netherlands and below you can see the full list of everyone involved. To go to the next blog click on the name after mine on the list. This month our theme is "Fancy Fold Cards".

spring fold card

Standard cards are really fun to create, but if you want to add something extra a fun fold card is the way to do it! For my card I used the Truly Tailored stamp set with the matching punch from the True Gentleman Suite (page 44/45 from the Spring/Summer Catalogue), which you can buy with a 10% discount when you buy them in a bundle! The designer paper is great too and perfect for men's cards. With Father's Day and a few birthdays coming up I know I'll be using lots of products from this wonderful suite.

Usually fun fold cards look quite difficult to create, but this Spring Fold Card is really easy and fun to do. I've posted a template below, so you can use it to create your own Spring Fold Card. It's so much fun when the recepient opens the envelope and the card just pops out! Sometimes I wish I was a little fly on the wall to see the faces of people opening these little surprises in an envelope! 💓

The ribbon is from the same suite as well and it just finishes the card perfectly. It reminds me of when I was a young child and we had a sofa made of the same fabric. And trousers as well! Yes, that was a really long time ago! 😉

If there are any products you would like to order just click here to shop online. Please use the hostess code for an order less than € 200,00. Any orders from € 200,00 don't use the hostess code and use the Stampin' Rewards you get right away to choose free products! At the end of each month I add up all the hostess codes that have been used, convert them to Stampin’ Rewards and divide this between everyone that has ordered that month so I can send you something nice through the mail at the beginning of the following month (only if you've used the hostess code!). If you have any questions, please contact me.
