*Exclusivity to the video on YouTube will be 6 weeks, I then reserve the right to change to a public video. This will allow me to grow my YouTube online presence.

*I reserve the right to substitute items if absolutely necessary. This would be due to a shortage of items from Stampin’ Up!

*Per Stampin’ Up! Compliance I am unable to stamp and images in your kits. So Stamp Sets must be purchased if you wish to create your cards exactly like mine. Of course many times you can easily substitute your own stamps and inks etc. So feel free to purchase a smaller priced class or just PDF & Card Kits.

*For the Blueberry card. You will not be able to create this card without purchasing the FULL bundle due to the stamp set is a free Sale A Bration item. If you purchase a smaller priced option I can substitute the papers to make it work with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.

Thank you for considering my classes. I just want to offer creativity even during the Pandemic. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to assist you.

Happy Stampin’

2 Fun Fold Cards w/ YouTube Tutorial


I love Dragonflies too!!! Today I have a fun YouTube taking you step by step through the creating process. These are both very simple cards but the eye for detail make them so much fun for the recipient. Lets take a closer look…


The first tutorial teaches you how to make this unique multiple flip card. It has a front flap that gives you an extra area to stamp your sentiment or message. Then inside it still have room for a note. I love the tone on tone look. In the video I show you an extra tone on tone version that is also quite striking.



The second card is a simple Z Fold design using the exact same pack of 6×6″ Dandy Garden Paper. Such a variety of color combos in this pack of papers.


And don’t miss getting these Ladybug Trinkets from my online store. Aren’t they the most adorable embellishments ever? In my online class I include them in one of the options along with the glue dots to attach them securely. Want more details on my Online Class. Click HERE!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will click on the YouTube video and that you enjoy the tutorials. Don’t forget there is only 1 week left until sign ups close for my online class featuring this same Dragonfly Garden Bundle 🙂

Happy Crafting!

Interlocking Gate Fold Card Tutorial ~ Forever Greenery DSP by Stampin’ Up!



Welcome back friends!

This week’s Focal Friday image is a floral arrangement that a friend of mine received for her birthday. I knew immediately when I saw it that it would go perfect with the Forever Greenery Suite by (#154143) Stampin’ Up! I only ended up using the Forever Greenery Designer Series paper (#152475) and I teamed it up with the To a Wild Rose (#149452) stamp set.



For my first card I have created a Interlocking Gate Fold Card.  This card was inspired by a fellow demonstrator named JoAnne Hewin. Thank you JoAnne for inspiring this design.

Would you like to learn how to make this design? Check out my brand new YouTube tutorial to help inspire you and make sure to share it with all of us over one facebook. CLICK HERE to join my private Melanie Smith Stamps facebook group.


The Forever Greenery Designer Series paper along with the three ink colors was perfect to go along with this weeks focal image. Just look at this beautiful paper..



For my second card I have created a traditional A2 size card focusing on both the colors of the focal imagery but also the beautiful Ornate Borders Die Set (152724)

For this second card I did not use any designer series paper. Instead I chose 3 smallish stamps and the 3 focal colors and stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock. I just loved the way it turned out. For the sentiment I used the Ornate Frames Die set.
