Pink Paislee and Scor-pal week!

The Pink Paislee teaming up with Scor-pal this week on the Pink Paislee blog.  Lots of inspiration to be found if you want to hop on over... as always, there are prizes to be won!!

Visit both the Scor-pal blog and Pink Paislee blog each day this week to see more project ideas and to enter for chances to win some great prizes, have fun!

I had a chance to play with Pink Paislee's Portfolio collection and some beautiful Artisan elements.  As soon as I saw the papers what hit me right away was the journalling mats, love them!  Taking inspiration from these prompts I thought it would be fun to make a never ending card to record everyday moments. 

The journal cards in this collection are wonderful prompts to recording our everyday life stories.  If you are doing Project Life or December Daily this would be a fun inter-active project to record your story.   It is hard to tell by the photos , it really is a little mesmerizing as you 'flip and flop' through your memories and journalling.  The template I used to make this project is the never-ending card.


Supplies: Pink Paislee Portfolio pattern papers; Artisan words, Artisan wings, Artisan chipboard; Glitter alphabets.  Queen&Co. twine, Memory box diecut

Here's how to make the never ending card.

1) Take 4 pieces of 8 x 4 inch pattern paper and score each at 2 and 6 inches.

Take 2 of the scored pieces and line them up so that the scored lines run vertical (shown in black lines in the image below)

Place score tape at the just the corners making sure the adhesive it outside of the score line and within 2 inches from the outside corner edges.

2) Peel off liner from adhesive strips, place the other two 8 x 4 inch papers directly over the top of the first two making sure the score lines are perpendicular to the score lines underneath.  The papers are now secured at the corners.

3) You have just finished the base of your never ending card!  Now you have to 'train' your card along the folds.  First flip the pages open left and right and crease where the paper want to fold.

4) Now flip the top over and bottom under.

 5) Now flip the pages over to the left and right.

6) This is the last rotation in the sequence, flip the top over and bottom under.

7) Now you are back to the beginning of the card.  Have fun decorating!

Hope you give this easy project a try, I think you will like it! Have a wonderful day! Virginia
