#SU! Sneak-Peek Love & Happiness Book Binding Card Tutorial

Wow! It's been a crazy few weeks. So glad to have had the Thanksgiving break and time spent with family. Always good to get re-set with the right priorities.

The card I'm sharing today came about because I joined a card swap with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators in my area. Always good for me to jump start some creativity. Because I had new products from the upcoming January-June Mini catalog, I wanted to use them.

The Love & Happiness Bundle [#157642] was my first choice because it's not just a Valentine's Day stamp set. So many possibilities for wedding, anniversary, I love you cards and of course, Valentine's Day too.

I'd not jumped in with the hybrid-embossing folder craze that Stampin' Up! introduced earlier this year. You can find them in the annual catalog on page 157, and on page 43 of the July-December Mini catalog too. 

But, oh my! I'm so very tempted to purchase both now that I've used this bundle!


The book-binding technique was the perfect layout for this card. I give a few tips on how to use this hybrid folder in making the card. I hope you'll check it out. And, if you aren't already a subscriber to my You-tube channel I'd so appreciate you doing so now. 

All the supplies can be purchased by clicking on the thumbnails below.
