    Wow I just joined this week and now I see that special. Wish I would’ve known. I would have waited until May. Cindy Rudd Sharpe

  2. Hi Robin – These are terrific!
    Will you post a template for the one that features the Country Birdhouse?
    That one is very intriguing!
    Happy Stamping!

    1. Hi Nola! Do you mean the crazy quilt stack, cut, & shuffle? I may try to create a template at some point but since I didn’t measure my cuts it might be confusing. I will ponder for sure! Happy stamping to you too!

    Hi Robin,
    I had mixed emotions about the new 24-26 In-Colors but have changed my mind after watching Playdate 118! My favorite card is the Graduated Strips in pink with the focal point cluster a close second; but I’m a monochromatic kind of gal.
    I look forward to your playdates and I cannot wait for my product share package. Thank you for all your hard work putting your videos and inspirations sheets together – you make me a better cardmaker and force me to try new things.

    1. Hello April! You are a Pretty in Pink girl!!! I’m glad you are willing to give the new colors a go. Your encouragement means the world to me, thank you!

  4. Love the graduated stripes card but better yet is that you have put in measurements!!!! And even told how to use with two-sided paper!!! Great for us who can copy but not create! Great directions.

    1. Hi Dot! I’m so happy you are loving this template. Easy cards are always so exciting to make.

    Just watched your video with card ideas for new in colors. I immediately made four of the graduated strips cards with old 6 x6 monochromatic papers from SU. So easy and so cute. However I found a mistake in the directions and perhaps you already caught this. The cutting for the five inch side of the paper should be 2,1 1/2, and 1.
    I am a demonstrator also but only for my own use. I live in a senior living residence and these folks love the cards but are not interested in making them.
    Learned two new hacks from you today…scoring before cutting into two card bases (brilliant,) and using copy paper instead of card stock for layering.
    Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Elaine! You are correct about the wrong measurement and I fixed the pdf – thank you so much! I love how we can all learn from each other – happy creating!

  6. Lovely cards, you have given me some great ideas, using my in colours which I got free and more I’ve bought on top. Thank you xx
