heatwave continues! YAY!
Unfortunately, I’m one of the few people who
actually enjoys this weather!
The forecast is that today’s the last day,
and temperatures will get back to normal tomorrow!
today I posted my Front Step Card video.
I found this idea in a copy of
Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine.
Unfortunately I don’t know when this
was published because, once I’ve finished with a magazine, I tear out
pages I want to keep!

called Budget Makes with Doilies, which is from the same magazine.
assume these articles are from the same month, they were in the July
2015 issue. There’s an advertisement on the back of one of the pages
that says “offer closes 31st July 2015”!
found this article when I spent the day in my studio having a good
clear out the day after Liz passed away last week.
I’ll have to have a
closer look at other aticles I’ve kept to see what else I can find!
I made the first Front Step Card, I really made hard work of it.
On the positive side, it
also helped me work out the easy way of doing it.
By the time I made
the video, I’d finished up with a very smooth and easy process.

was a bit of an effort to get the card to stand up because the ceiling

Absolutely love this card and looking forward to trying it today! Really like the paper-piecing on the lady and the lovely contrasts of the DSP on the rest of the card. Beautifully done, Jan … as always!! TFS

Beautiful card as always… sorry to hear of Liz's passing…. we all do different things when we grieve… I sleep… cleaning would probably be a better use of time… going to try this card with the flamingo in the "Pop of Paradise" and some retired botanical blooms DSP I have been hoarding…. thank you for all of the splendid tutorials!!
Hi, Jean. Many thanks for your condolences. Your choices for this card sound brilliant. Enjoy making it. ☺ Happy crafing, JanB.

Will have a go at this once I get back from Tasmania for my mum's 90th birthday I think it's brilliant as always some bling would finish it off for me
Hi, Trish. Congratulations to your Mum on her 90th! For me it's be some 3D flowers to finish it off! LOL! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

Super easy to follow your instructions loving this card. Thank you
Hi, Chelle. I’ve just found your post! I can see by the date you posted this when I was still with Blogger, and they had stopped sending me notification when crafters had left posts for me! Anyway, I’m pleased you enjoyed this project.Happy crafting, JanB xx
I love this card. Does this card collapse so you can fit it into an envelope?
Hi, Jennifer. Yes, this card does fold flat, and it fits into a standard size envelope. Happy crafting, JanB. xx
