New projects featuring PaperFaces Designs

Pop-up Present Card, featuring PaperFaces Designs
Not that one could tell by this blog, but I've but in the eye of a real crafting storm for the past few weeks. Sometimes I feel like I have two crafting moods: too many insane ideas, and no ideas at all. Recently, however, I've discovered a third: working on another version of an idea. Wild, I know.

Therese at PaperFaces Designs shared part of her upcoming Christmas holiday series with her design team, and I just love all of them. Our Holiday projects will post soon, but I couldn't help but use a couple of the angels for everyday cards.

Pop-up present card supply list: ColorB
รถk card stock, DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies paper, HP color printer, generic matte photo paper, Galena metallic ribbon, Zip-Dry glue, Tim Holtz scissors, PaperFaces digi stamps: Angel Stacie and Angel Goldie.

"If you can make a book, you can do anything."

A wise woman told me that recently. It might not make as much sense out of context, but it certainly feels true after a day of making this book. It's the 5th piano-hinge book I've made in the past 2 weeks, and I just can't stop! This one is 2.72 x 2 inches.

The poem I used is one I wrote a couple of years ago, and recently revised...I feel like it has a home now. And I hope this inspires you to look up piano hinge just need paper, scissors, and toothpicks or skewers. You could make it in your kitchen!

Oh, and if you're wondering what a poemoir is...I wanted the title page to look official, and this looked better than "a memoir-ish poem, without a narrative." That just doesn't look good in print!
