Let’s face it we all have friends that know too much about us, all the more reason to keep them close right? Here is what looks like an everyday shabby chic card until you read the sentiment. It was put together using KI Memories 6x6 Pad and the LOL Hampton Art stamp set.
We Will Always Be Friends card by Patty Folchert
Start with a cream color card base and add the center panel mat leaving the border edge. Then using a coordinating paper add the center strip panel after distressing the edges. Then add a plain cardstock color center stripe with distressed edges, on top of it add a banner piece of patterned paper in a contrast color also with distressed edges. Using a scalloped circle punch, punch out five scalloped circles in coordinating papers. Spray the circles lightly with water and crumple up, then flatten out and allow to dry. Once dry layer them together and insert a brad through the center of all of them and flatten the back to hold flower together.
Manipulate layers by crumpling and folding to achieve the 3D flower look and then a flower center to cover the brad. Next stamp the sentiment from the LOL stamp set onto plain cardstock cocoa color in brown ink, fussy cut it out and attach 3D foam dots to each end allowing center to arch up to add dimension.
How many friends do you have that are this close? Better make a card for each of them, which might keep them quiet.

Craft Room Banner Do you need a fun décor element to add to your craft room this new year? Here is an easy one made with Hampton Art LOL Craft stamps and Jillibean Soup Cold Avocado papers.
Using the Jillibean Soup Chalkboard Flags from the stampables collection begin by stamping each flag with a different crafting theme stamp as shown in white pigment ink. The “plays with scissors” banner was stamped onto a chalkboard flag and then cut out and added on top of the hand-drawn scissors flag with 3D foam dots. Here is a close up:
Set flags aside to dry for 24 hours. Using the Cold Avocado papers make the mats for the pennants and attach to chalkboard flags with 3D foam dots. Using a hold punch, punch the two top corners for the twine to feed through to hang.
Then cut the top border strips from the same papers and attach with 3D foam dots. Select three doilies from the stampables pack and cut them in half. Hole punch the ends of each doily as shown for twine to feed through. Finally you just put it all together with your choice of bakers twine, alternating doilies with flags all the way across. Hang up and enjoy!
There you have it, a quick and easy décor project for that special crafting area in your home.
Happy New Year! Patty

This scrumptious love card was created with the fabulous new Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup papers and three different stamped Jillibean Soup Stampables.
You Are: ... card by Patty Folchert
The base of the card was made with Red Sherry paper providing a nice neutral background. Then begin layering with two mats, one in pink cardstock and the other in Turquoise Salt. Now the first stamped item is the upside down stampable white frame, stamped in ocean blue ink mini hearts from the Heart Healthy Red Bean stamp set. Then I added on the main panel from the Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup Bite Size Bits paper. Cutting the top title off to reattach later and centering it inside the white frame as shown, the frame being added with 3D foam dots. Then the top title was layered onto a turquoise pattern paper and matted as shown with more 3D dots.
The small heart next to the title was cut from Bite size bits paper too and added with foam dot. The white stampable doily was cut in half and stamped in two shades of blue with the arrow stamp from the Heart Healty stamp set. Then the balloon was selected from the Heart Healthy pea pods and added over the doily with foam dots. Layered onto it is the wood heart stampable stamped with the heart stamp again in the darker shade of blue and attached with a glue dot. Grab some turquoise bakers twine and tie a bow around the pea pod balloon as shown. Another wood shape stampable banner was added after it was stamped on in blue ink the “Be Mine?” sentiment and attached with more 3D foam dots.
Your sweetheart will love this any time of the year!
Stamped with Love, Patty

This mini hanger is the perfect spot to hide away love notes for your loved ones! The project was created with the Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup papers and a Stampables stamp.
The hanger started with attaching two mini chevron bags together and adding lots of dimensional layers on top. First a panel of Heart Healthy Bay Leaves was attached with adhesive to the two mini bags to hold them together. Next a Heart Healthy banner sticker was attached to a strip of Turquoise Salt and trimmed down to match. Then I created extra interest by stamping the white doily first with the love notes stamp from the Notebook Paper stampables collection set. Then I added a Pink Salt backer to the doily before I attached it with 3D foam dots to the hanger. The brand new beanboard alphas were added next to spell out L,O,V,E they have an adhesive back, so just peel and stick.
Then a Heart Healthy sticker, Love Letters, was added in the center. The entire piece was hung with mini wood clothespins to the hanger. Then I dressed up the top of the hanger with stickers from Heart Healthy labels sticker sheet and mounted them on coordinating papers with a swallowtail sugar pick and a red polka dot bow finished it off.
So surprise your loved ones with some love notes, maybe they will even leave some notes for you in return!
