A2 Envelope/Pocket Envelope tutorial

Standard

Several people have asked how to make an A2 envelope that holds a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card. By folding an A2 envelope differently you can make a pocket envelope.

First cut your paper at 6 3/4″ x 10 3/4″

Ten Never-Before-Seen Images!

You wanted more? You got more! We’ve had a great response so far to our experiment with single stamps. So much so that we are making ten more never-before-seen images available as single stamps available through March 31, 2013.

Details

  • You can find the stamp item numbers on the flyers.
  • Single stamps can be ordered in the online store.
  • These won’t be sent in our typical cases or packaging; they’ll be packaged in cello bags. If you’d like a case for your stamp, you can buy our Clear-Mount Stamp Cases that come in packs of four (item 119105).
  • This offer is available for clear-mount stamps only.
  • The stamps won’t come with a Clear-Mount Block, and you’ll need to buy a block separately if you don’t already have one. The recommended block sizes can be found on the flyer.
  • There’s no limit on how many pieces you can buy.
  • These stamps are only available through March 31, 2013, so get them while you can!

Standard

Diana and I had a great time at leadership this past weekend. Lots of samples and fun ideas to see. I am posting a few pictures of some sample boards; might be a few hands and arms in the way as everyone was taking pics!
