Default Great card blogs to follow


Some great blogs to follow whose videos are easy to follow are Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner, Gina K. Designs, Simon Hurley for a start. Nothing elaborate and I always feel like I can try their posted card projects and great tips offered.

Someone posted the instructions and measurements for making it and I decided to give it a try,
I tried to insert a photo of my card but it isn't working, so I'll put it in my gallery if you want to see it there.

Thanks Linda. It's hard to explain how it folds, and when I first saw one I couldn't figure it out either. I didn't even know it folded flat for mailing so I didn't want to make one.It's called a U-fold because, if you look down at it from the top, it is shaped like the letter U.  The papers are from a huge paper stack by K&Company. All the papers in the stack are florals or garden themed and I've used them for cards and even to make envelopes.

Linda, I just uploaded another one of these U-fold cards and you might be more able to see how it's folded. This is also using papers from the same K&Company paper stack, and also a sentiment stamp by Anna Griffin.

Hi Linda,

Yes, I think that K&Co might be out of business, or they may have been bought by some other company...not sure. Most of my papers are very old because I don't buy new ones very often. I have so much that I'm trying to use what I have. The main papers that I buy are heavy card stock for my card bases.

I have papers and embellishments by K&Co because I like their vintage look.

Thanks for answering this question. I tried Googling it but nothing came up. Thought it may have been bought by American Crafts (who bought everything up!). Was surprised to see that Wilton also owns Martha Stewart crafts and Inkadinkado. Hard to keep up with all this change over the years.

Linda, just like I mentioned on the fancy fold thread that people can have different names for the same fold (like Gina K's tunnel card being more like what is listed as a pop-up diorama here), Karen's u-fold is what we have in our tutorials here as a bridge fold (Bridge Fold Card on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers). The tutorial shows the front piece cut with a die, but personally I almost always just use a plain piece of card.  And I think if you look in the gallery for the technique,   most  cards are not fancy cut. They are indeed a great way of using pretty papers.  If you watch the video in the  tutorial you'll see how it folds flat.

Thanks Sabrina,
I had searched the tutorials for a U-fold and didn't realize that it's also called a Bridge fold. The tutorial section is a wonderful source of techniques that I don't access often enough.

I don’t think the products are under a different name. The sale happened years ago, but I found K&Co products on multiple sites when I did a quick google search yesterday.

Thanks Linda,
As I said, I don't make fancy folded cards very often, and I am terrible at making interactive cards. Most of my cards are just the regular folded types.
What about you? Do you mostly make regular folded cards, or have you tried different shapes or folds?
If you were able to make a card now, what kind of cards would they be? Christmas or Fall? Birthday cards? I am starting to make some fall cards, but I always work on birthday cards and Christmas designs.

well you ask a great question I like all kinds. But I mostly stick with regular folded types. Because mom hard with other cards too! But only because she could not cuts straight either. Or measurement very well. 

Like I said before If was still a fan club member. I still be doing annual  challenges which are bunch challenges one was in August that last week. with about 3 to 5 challenges a day. 
Linda 

And you last question Birthday cards and Christmas designs. And mostly Christmas Cards And Than Mother's Day projects. Me and my mom would all make something for all the mom at my church Witch was about 30 to 35 things of the same project. I make something for 2 Mother's Day because it was on my mom do list. So that is the only craft we did together. I am going to miss that too! Because it became like at church tradition for us to do the ladies looked forward to every year.

Hi Linda,
I used to make about 20 Mother's Day cards each year to donate to an online card drive, and about 10 of them to drop off at the senior residence that my mom used to live in. Did the same for Father's Day as well. Since I lost both of my parents (mom in 2013, and dad in 1990), it was a way for me to help celebrate both holidays. I'll bet the moms at church loved getting their cards from you and your mom.

I don't know of any list, Linda, unless you did a search for fun folds. It's not even a case of UK/Europe and US. Like Karen said, she knew her fold as a U-fold, and I did come across that when I featured it as the TLC a couple of years back, but more of what I found called it a bridge fold, so that was the term I used and, evidently, so does the SCS tutorial. But that was just within the US. And slider cards, say that in a room of crafters and you'll probably get at least six different answers as to what people understand by that .

I don't know about other sites, but here, whether it's in the daily challenges or VSN etc, there will normally be a link to a tutorial and samples from the hostess. For example, Jean featured Gina K's tunnel card earlier this year, but she also mentioned that the tunnel card tutorial here was different, and she provided examples of both, in case people preferred to try the other version. 
The pleated skirt fold is another one I remember noticing more than one name for, I think I've also seen it called the drapery fold.

Did you check out the link in the first post in this thread? Https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/f...w-t635134.html
Because it's primarily scrapbooking many of them are 12" and double sided.

Hi Linda,

Did you say that you don't buy online? If so, the only suggestion is to go to your local craft store and see what they have. May I ask why you are looking for double sided papers? It seems like most of the 12x12 Christmas papers that I've seen are single sided, so I just wondered how you plan to use double sided.

Paper packs often have a mix of subtle and busy prints, so you might want to go for open stock single sheets, and skip the busy patterns.  It seems like a lot of brands are doing fairly busy patterns this year, and a lot of whimsical designs that are more cute than beautiful.

I prefer subtle prints for my card bases in general, and they are often hard to find. Good luck.

Because it's primarily scrapbooking many of them are 12" and double sided.

I just thought double sided would give me more options for my money. I and feel the Christmas cards. And the Christmas paper is losing the real meaning of Christmas, If, you know what I mean? And Some of the single sided Christmas paper is to thin. thanks Linda

Did you say that you don't buy online? If so, the only suggestion is to go to your local craft store and see what they have. May I ask why you are looking for double sided papers?

If you were able to get it anywhere, I think this one from Crafter's Companion is very nice...and has die-cut preprinted elements all ready to add to your cards: Crafter's Companion - Natures Garden Nativity Collection - 12 x 12 Paper Pad - A Christmas Story. I'm not sure, though, if its double-sided. But if it's not because you need the double sides for 3D projects or folds where that matters (like the pleated skirt fold, double pocket etc...) I don't think you should rule single sided out.

They look so elegant and pretty!
I wish too make cards like these in the link: They are so elegant and pretty. And they look like some Anna Griffin cards. I would love turn some of these cards into Christmas cards.
Thanks Linda


I can help you make a card like this one (it was on the link you listed) What color would you like?

I thought that you wanted to make 30-35 Christmas cards all the same. So, if you find a design you like, then you will only be using one side anyway. And, if the design paper is thin-glue it onto a sturdy, colored cardstock for backing. 

Do you tend to find paper you like and build a card around it? or do you have a card design in mind and search for "the perfect paper" for your design? Those are two very different ways of creating and have their own advantages and disadvantages. If one can't decide which way to design, then a person probably spends a lot of time fiddling around, and possibly getting frustrated.

Linda, it looks like your town, Burleson, has a lot of options. 

There is a Michael's and Hobby Lobby. I believe both those give craft classes. You could phone the manager and explain your situation and ask if they would ask participants if they want a "crafting buddy".

There is a local chapter of "Volunteers of America" 817-295-4011 who offer volunteers for people with disabilities.

There are two Hospice chapters who would have grief support groups, individual grief counselors, and maybe other Hospice family members who would benefit from having a partner/helper to share recovery activities like crafting. Community Hospice is 817-615-2150 and Encompass Hospice is 817-447-7312. Hospice grief support is typically free and open to anyone in the community whether you used Hospice services for your mother or not and no matter what your religious beliefs, they can help during this difficult time of recovery. I bet during COVID they do services over the phone, too.

Fort Worth area SCS members are your neighbors. 

Sabrina, is there any efficient way to search the SCS member database by city? Actually, I have wondered that because I'd like to connect with my northern California SCS sisters.

Karen, which northern Calif city are you in? I'm in Modesto.

I have done both ways.... But, when mom was a live and she know more about crafting too. I do have a card  design I like this year. But, I not sure if dad or whoever can make the card design, Puls it has several layers And I don't what images or stamps to use. I know I wanted to say Merry Christmas. And I am not sure what embellishments to use? The lady did a Halloween card of it. But, I wanted turn it too Christmas card instead. That all I know at this point  trying to get my dad to watch the video here on SCS sometime soon! thanks Linda
