Cards in a wallet tutorial using For All Things by Stampin' Up

I'm so happy today because I'm back! Yes I know, you hadn't noticed I'd been away but I'm talking about the Youtube me! I love demonstrating how to use my Stampin' Up stash on video and I'm happy to say that I'll now be able to do plenty more of it!

So how about starting with the tutorial I promised you for my card wallet and coordinating cards set? Come and see:

In the original project, I used a paper from the Color Me Autumn designer paper pack to make the wallet. Today I've chosen a different paper from that pack - they are ALL gorgeous!

By the way, did you know that if you join Stampin' Up this month, you'll get to choose SIX free packs of designer paper on top of £130 worth of products in your starter kit - and all for just £99?! This is an offer you really can't refuse! Click here for all the details.

The cards and envelopes slip neatly into the wallet and I love that you can see the subtle design on the reverse of the paper when you open the flap.

I used just one colour ink for the cards and they coordinate perfectly with the wallet thanks to the fact that Stampin' Up inks match all the designer paper, card stock, markers, ribbons and embellishments. It makes it so easy to create professional looking projects.

Do you want to see how I made this little gift set? Well come on into my Craft Square Metre and I'll show you!

I was talking to my daughter on the phone yesterday and she reminded me of a funny moment on the train to Brussels. I'd offered her one of those mini Green and Blacks chocolates  and she took a bite out of it and then put it down in its wrapper on the table while she looked in her bag for something. When she looked up it had gone. She hunted about all over the place for it, even under the seats, but it had disappeared.

On the return journey there was the usual announcement 'Good evening ladies and gentlemen. My name is Marcel and I am in charge of this train. I will be coming through the carriages so if you have any questions about your jouney please feel free to ask...' At this point my daughter piped up: "Marcel, Marcel? Have you seen my chocolate?!"

Have a wonderful weekend won't you. I'll be back here on Monday - see you then!


  1. Great project Vicky . .. video appears to be in "safety mode" and cannot be viewed. xxx

  2. That paper is so beautiful. Dammit Vicky, you cost me a fortune, I will have to order it now. Love your daughter's chocolate story. It reminds me of my most recent trip with my daughter on a packed train from Bristol. There was a Mum being very patient with her three young daughters, but then her voice went up a notch and she said "No, Jessica, you CAN'T play your violin on the train!". There was a wave of sighs of relief and titters through the whole carriage, it made my day, as I am sure did your daughter's comment to her fellow travellers!

  3. This looks like a great project and it will make a nice gift for a friend. I will watch the video as soon as I get chance
    Have a great weekend
