Beginning with the plain white mini card I stamped in red ink directly to the card front in bottom right corner the “Sweet Moments” sentiment. Next cut three border strips in the floral and butterfly paper as shown. Then using a different clear stamp set with mini hearts stamp in red ink the kraft tag with heart cut out.

Last I added a red satin ribbon to tag hole and three pink sequins for a little bling. It is super easy and quick to create fun mini cards like this. Make a stash of mini valentine cards today!

Hello Love Bug card by designer Patty Folchert

Welcome to Valentine season! Here is a cute card using some brand new Jillibean Soup and Hampton Art tags, stamps and papers.

Hello Love Bug card by Patty Folchert

The card base is a 5” x 7” white card stock. Then I chose the blue, pink and red patterned papers to coordinate with the denim tag and red stamped ladybug and sentiment. The border strips were cut in different heights some 3/4 “ and some 1” and all 4.5” long. I used the white brick paper as a mat and stitched the borders for added texture. Then I zigzag stitched the denim tag across the bottom in white thread. I adhered the white brick mat to the card front.

Next I stamped the ladybug and sentiment onto white cardstock in red ink and cut out as shown. The fussy cut lady bug was then added with foam dot to the denim tag. I cut the Love Bug sentiment out in shape of a square and added the red mat then adhered with a foam dot. The hello word bubble was added from the pea pods set of Summer Red Raspberry Soup with foam dots as shown. Next I tied a red satin ribbon bow and adhered with glue dot to the top of the tag.
A handmade valentine is the final result, sure to bring a smile to your chosen Love Bug.

Valentine Wishes,
Patty Folchert

Bundle of Joy card by designer Patty Folchert

Is there a new bundle of joy arriving into your life? I could not resist reaching for the Jillibean Soup new shaker card system to create a baby card. It paired up nicely with a Hampton Art wood block stamp to make this sweet baby card.

Bundle of Joy card by Patty Folchert

Beginning with the plain card base I cut four border strips as shown from Summer Red Raspberry Soup papers in pink and aqua patterns. Then I sewed them onto the card base with white thread with my sewing machine. Then I grabbed one of the new kraft banner tags from the “Tag You’re It” collection and stamped the sentiment in brown ink. Then I added the color floral strip on the end and sewed it on as well. The banner tag was then attached to card with foam dots.

Then I added the plastic shape shaker. Next I filled the shape with sequins in gold, pink and green colors with a few wood veneer stars sprinkled in. Then I added a pea pod doily shape to the back of the shape attaching it with the adhesive already on the shape. Then laying the shape into the front card opening I added adhesive to the doily and attached to inside of card. That gave me a nice pink backer on the shape and a cute scalloped edge on the inside of the card.
That is how I created a sweet welcome baby card for a very special baby girl named Addison. With one color change from pink to light blue, and two different paper choices this could very easily adapt to a baby boy card too. 

Baby Blessings,
Patty Folchert

You & Me Layout by designer Patty Folchert

My husband and I got to enjoy an Anniversary Getaway weekend in October and I wanted to create a layout of our visit to Granville. The Jillibean Soup papers and brand new wood tags from the Tag You’re It collection made perfect accents.

You & Me layout by Patty Folchert

I started with a plain kraft paper background and cut some border strips from the Summer Red Raspberry Soup paper collection. Knowing I wanted to use some of the new tags I chose two wood tags, one kraft banner tag and one vellum with gold foil tag. Then I stamped directly onto the wood tags in a couple different colors. The small wood butterfly tag was stamped first in light blue pigment ink and let dry. Then I stamped a smaller butterfly over top of the blue one in brown ink. The bigger tag was stamped first with doily stamp in yellow and green ink. Then I stamped it again with the You & Me sentiment in brown ink. The last tag was the new kraft banner tag which I stamped three small butterflies in brown ink as shown.

The design of the layout was based on a sketch by Scrapbook Generations. I often begin with a sketch to get the creativity flowing. I hope this gives you new ideas on how to utilize tags on a layout in a fun way.

Tag You’re It,

 Patty Folchert
