Q's Creative Cards: Festive Folio!

Last year I created what I called a 'book card' from my Christmas Vintage Twinkle Card Kit.

I really loved that card.  It inspired me!  So, this year, I blew it up!  Made it bigger and thicker (5 x 7.5 x 1) and turned it into what I call my Festive Folio!

In the most traditional sense, a folio is a sheet of paper folded into a book, but that is way too much work!  So I designed 2 cut files, that I have pre-cut, pre-scored and pre-folded (oh my!) so all you do is decorate and adhere together!

What really makes this folio extra festive is my jolly Santa that will clasp your filled folio together with an extra strong magnet!  Of course, we need to fill all five of the pockets in this project, so included in this kit are seven super easy tags and 4 Cards.

And because I love to multi task, you can switch out the metal frame holder to "Christmas Memories" and turn it into a Christmas Keepsake.  Use the tags and cards for journaling and photo mats!

All Q's Creative Kits come pre-cut and ready to assemble.  Each kit comes with a step-by-step photo slideshow with easy to follow instructions.  Each kit will also be followed up with an email with all printables and cut files for your use.  


Kits will ship Nov. 8th and Classes (in Utah) begin Nov. 12 (see schedule below).

Q's Creative Cards: HAPPY CAMPER!

I have a special place in my heart for camping & the outdoors.  My best memories as a child were camping ...but I should use that word loosely.

My Mom, my sister and I and my little brother would sleep in the back of the station wagon and Dad and the boys would drape a tarp over a branch! 

But we had foxes and bear visiting us, campfires, babbling brooks, picking blueberries and that intoxicating smell of the pine forest.

I still love to camp, but I must admit, it's a LOT more plush these days! I even make cards while I camp!  

Happy Camper Card Kit includes FIVE pre-cut & ready-to-assemble cards, a photo instructional slideshow, written instructions and printables and Cut files as a bonus!  

Classes start and kits start shipping August 20th!

I'll be having four all-day retreats this summer (see schedule below).  This is a small group retreat (10-12 people) in my home ... doesn't get more cozy than that!  

You will be my guests from 9 to 9 with several classes, all of which build upon each other with an emphasis on Design.  Lunch, dinner, snacks and a campfire included, and of course, lots of product and door prizes!

The number one question I get asked is "do you ever sleep"...the answer is a resounding YES :).  The second question I get asked is how do you come up with your card ideas? 

I'm finally ready to share 'behind' Q's Creative cards!
