I Made This Tri Fold / Tri Shutter Card Tutorial.

I am the type of person who is more visual when it comes to making crafts. So what I did was to make this Tutorial my way, hoping it will help others who are alot like me when it comes to making cards and doing scrapbooking. I do want to thank  The Craftiblog for putting this on their blog! This will fit into a standard invitation size envelope when it is all folded.
I am posting as many photo's as I can to help. So here we go!!


First I cut a piece of cardstock to a 5 1/2 x 12. I turned it long ways and then I scored it at 2", 4", 8" and at 10" . After I scored it I took a pencil and drew down the score lines so you could it better.

Then I turned the card around and to make the cuts in the center. Measure at 1 1/2 " from the outside . From the 10 " score line down to the 2" score line make a cut. Now turn the card around measure over 1 1/2 inches and cut from the 2" score line down to the 10' score line.  (see photos).


Your card should now look like this. (See photos)

Take the 4" top score and the bottom 4" score and bent it towards you. Do the same for the 8"  center score.


Now take and bend the 4" center, the top and bottom of the 8" score and bend it away from you.


When folded it should look like this.                     Open it looks like this.

Posted On The Cricut Cake Board.

A few things that were made using the CC machine. This is what thickness I was working with when I first got to play with it. These are reposted. But it will give you an idea of what you can do with the CC machine.

This was a test run on cutting out the word sweet.

I had to see if I could layer with the CC.

Happy Haunting !

Here is a Happy Halloween Card I started last night and finally finished it today!It is called a Trifold Card. . I used Happy Hauntings and Paper Doll Dress Up. Not bad for the first one ! I still have a long way to go with making cards. Hope you enjoy!!

A Yellow Rose

This card is what gave me the inspiration to make the Edible card. I like the backround paper. I don't remember where I got it from. Simple yet sweet!

Live Laugh & Love

3D Spiderman Cake

Here is my first 3D cake. I had alot of fun making this one! One of my grandson's wanted a Spiderman cake for their B-Day, so I decided to make him one !! lol  He didn't want to cut the cake. But Mom Mom said it was ok! I was amazed at how it all came together. The Spiderman head is styrofoam, one of those foam heads you get at the beauty supply store. It was cut and shaped to look like him. I LOVE how it turned out!!! The cake was covered in all Fondant.

Memorial Day Cake

Here is a cake I had done for my Daughters party. It was 93 degrees in my kitchen that week and above. I have no AC in the house. This was a big challange to make because of the heat. Things started to melt and slide. I just went with it. Well, the cake made it to the party! The cake was Vanilla with a Raspberry filling covered in Fondant. I used the Stand and Salute cart.

The Little Mermaid Cake

This is a cake my Granddaughter wanted for her B-Day. It took about a week to bake and put together. It turned out pretty nice! I used my Expression for some of the deco's. I tried to mold the little mermaid out of Fondant /Gumpaste but had no luck. I decided to use the top of a doll and saved the rest so she could put it back together and play with it. The shell she is sitting in is made out of all White Chocolate. The rock is made out of RKT and covered in Fondant.
