October Shoebox Cards

Hi Everyone! What a lovely evening of creativity!!

It's always amazing the talent in our little group!  And tonight we had two guests! So glad to have you Connie and Courtney!!

Here's my card... 

Last year a client wanted to make this card (inspired by Carol Luboski) and I thought it was lovely!  and wanted to do it for Shoebox cards! It was a little labor intensive, but so worth it!!  It uses the September SOTM from last year called Poster Tidings!

And here are the other cards created at tonight... 

Most people know that I am a Frank Freak!  So of course I love this card!  and I giggled as I put this one together.  Anita's Creation!!


Julie's creation was a darling Spider web envelope!  It was simply adorable!  And it used a 12x12 sheet of paper!

Simple directions are fold it in have diagonally, then score at 3 1/2 and 6 from each end of the folded edge. (Folded edge is horizontal) (it needs to be flipped to do the other side as it's longer than a 12 x12).  Then place the flat edge vertical and score at 4 1/2. (cut out triangles on the top edge.)

Fold all score lines then bring take the left side, open it up and bring the bottom up to the top point and fold.  Do the same thing on the right side.  This creates a pocket to slip the top of the envelope in. Hope that makes sense.

Open (see where the triangles were cut out near the top)
Our Friend Lori was out of town for tonight, but she brought over the supplies to make her creation!!  We missed you Lori and loved making this cute Pumpkin card!!

Melani's Creation is a darling card reminding us that brooms aren't just for sweeping!  

It was a fabulous night and thanks to everyone who came and played!  The next Shoebox Card event will be on Tuesday November 4th!

    1. It's very fun and clever too!! I am a Frank Freak, so I totally loved this card too... and it looks easy, but getting the eyes and nose placed just right takes some time and patience!!
