Woven 12” Scrapbook Double Page Layouts

Here are my Three Woven 12” Scrapbook Double Page Layouts! I had so much doing my Three Cards and Box with this color scheme, that I just had to do some scrapbook pages too! I love this great Spice Cake Designer Series Paper from the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog that I used to do these, but you could easily change the paper to anything and easily use this layout for any occasion! These would make great new baby or beautiful wedding page layouts!
The tutorial includes step-by-step photos and directions to do all of the weaving for the backgrounds as well as the punch art and stamping.

Swing-Out Fold Square Card

Here is the card flat...

And here it is with the front swung out!

Here is my Swing-Out Fold Card that I came up with. It lays flat to mail but then the small front square swings out to stand it up for displaying! This is just like the other ones, only it is 4-1/4" square. This is a better size to make with a class because you can get two card bases out of a 8-1/2" x 11" sheet. I used the En Francais background stamp and the Ain't Love Grand hostess set to make this card.
You can see the directions to make the fold for this card HERE and/or HERE. The only difference is you start with a 4-1/4" x 10-1/4" sheet of paper. You are still going to score the card at 3", 4-1/2", and 6". Then you are going to cut 3" from the bottom over to that 6" score line. That will give you the 3" square on the left and the 4-1/4" square on the right.
If you are sick of these Swing-Out Fold cards, this is the last one for a while! I just had so much fun with them I couldn't help it!

Meeting Swap- Swing-Out Fold Card

I decided that for my swap card for my SU meeting this past weekend, that I would do my Swing-Out Fold Card. I saw this card and used it as inspiration for the stamping on mine! I used the Falling Leaves stamp set from the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog to make this card and the Perfect Words hostess set for the sentiment.
I had to make 14 of these for swaps, and let me tell you, it took forever! I did simplify the cutting and scoring to make them, so here is how I did it below. This is probably a better way to make this if you are going to cut them for a class.
HERE is my other card like this if you want to see it.

Here is how I made this card!

First I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I cut a frame out of another piece of scrap paper and placed it over my Vanilla piece. I stamped and sponged with the frame down, and then when its lifts, you have clean edges. I used Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Early Espresso ink,

I cut a 3" x 6-1/2" piece of Early Espresso card stock and scored it at 3", 4-1/2" and 6". Put glue on the middle 1-1/2" section and fold it over.

You will now have the piece on the left. Then put glue on the small 1/2" section like shown.

This will glue behind the 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Espresso card base. Now you have your swing out arm that folds back to fit in the envelope!

Cut a 2-3/4" Vanilla square and stamp on it for the swing out section. Your card is finished!
