As soon as I saw this card fold I knew I had to have a go. It has amazing WOW factor and even better folds completely flat for posting! I used the Nailed It bundle from Stampin' Up! to decorate. The papers are the retired Going Places but also an old car manual cut up which I think really helps to create a proper 'man space'. The cork paper really adds to the feel of a workshop and the tools have been cut out on silver card. The drawers don't open as the card folds flat but I did glue one flat and one on foam pads just to add a bit of dimension. There is a space on the back of the card for your message.

This week I had to go to a friends special birthday party and so I had to make a special card. I had seen the wiper card but never had a go. This card has the WOW factor as it is reasonably easy to make but is fun as it has a pop up feature. Just using scored lines and folds creates a mechanism. You can pull on the card and as it unfolds the 'wiper' part pops up showing a message or you may add balloons or butterflies here too, it is only limited by your imagination, so the possibilities are endless!

Yesterday I went to a Team Training event with the Stampin Stars, a large group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators, and we used the new Memories and More memory keeping system from Stampin' Up! coming out in the new Annual Catalogue, 1st June 2017. This is a quick and easy form of scrapbooking designed to work alongside our busy lifestyles. I don't know about you but I have taken so many photos on my phone and would be sad to lose but I never seem to download to show them off. A big part of my history is on my phone and I really need to do something about changing that! So to kickstart my first Memories and More project, I printed pictures from my camping holiday in Ireland last year with my sisters. This is an annual trip we organise as we are dotted all around Europe now and this is the one time we make time for just us sisters. (There was a lot of daft carry on as you can imagine!) So having printed the pictures I could then arrange them using the easy pocket page system from Memories and More. I chose some cards, as you can add notes for journal comments on the coordinating card packs, to note down what was happening and dates etc. I don't know about you but I am always keeping bits from holidays and special events and they are in bags and boxes tucked away. The Memories and More album is a great way to display and keep them safe and share off course so my family can see what silly capers their mum, wife, daughter got up to on holiday! I think an album like this would make a great gift for a special occasion, for the mum to be, the bride or anniversary couple, to record and share all those special memories that are for the moment stored on our electronic devices for no one to see. For my next project I am going to start an album for my daughter starting at 0 years and working up to celebrate her 18th birthday, I am sure there will be a few embarrassing pics in there somewhere but memorable too. But first I do have a bit of work to do with this album for my sisters, but this is just the start and I can't wait to add more!
