fabrique friday…

For today’s Fabrique Friday post, I just wanted to pop in and answer a question I have been asked several times.  The most frequently asked question I get is some version of this:

What’s the difference between the Slice Fabrique Design cards and the Slice Elite Design cards?

The answer is simple:

The cards are similar, they are just marketed for different people. All the Elite design cards were created for paper and the Fabrique design cards were created for fabric. You can cross over and use all the Fabrique design cards on the Elite. Most of the Elite shapes will work on the Fabrique (except the shapes that are intense or intricate).

I hope this is helpful – please let me know if you have any other questions! :)

Remember to check out the Slice Fabrique page on Facebook as well as the Slice Fabrique Website & Blog for lots of useful tips, and fun project ideas!

mini gift bags…

I have a little tutorial up over on the Doodlebug blog today!

It’s all about taking one of these:

And turning it into one of these:

Yep – from an envelope to a gift bag! 

It’s super easy…and a great way to use the “extra” envelopes you might have on hand.

I’d love for you to check it out!  And if you make some envelope gift bags, please leave a comment with a link – I’d love to see your creations!!  :o)

I am having so much fun with these photos from a few years ago – I can’t believe I didn’t ever scrapbook them.  The kids all look so little – there’s nothing like a scrapbook page with 3 year old photos to convince you how fast time flies and how quickly your kids change and grow up! :o)

doodlebug halloween cards…

My first design team assignment is up on the Doodlebug blog today!  I was assigned to use the Doodlebug create-a-card bases.  Of course I opted to make Halloween cards – these cute colorful monster designs were just calling my name!

And since these create-a-card packs come with envelopes, I wanted to make a coordinating envelope too!  It was easy with the cut-out pages and rub-ons. :)

These pumpkins are super cute…but I added google eyes to fun-ify them even more!

For some reason the card and envelope look a little yellow (below) in the supply list – but be assured, they are a pretty pumpkin orange! :)
