Miura Fold Kits in the Mail on Sale Now!

Miura is a mysterious name that describes an alluring fancy fold greeting card. My next edition of Kits in the Mail features this fold. Here is the front of the card.

Enjoy both sides of the patterned paper when opening this greeting card.

Included in your supply packet will be one design using patterned papers from the Lovely in Linen pack and one design using the He’s the Man pack. Please note there may be assorted pattern paper designs in your pack so it may not look exactly like it is shown in the photos. IN ADDITION, the die cuts in your He’s the Man kit will be assorted and coordinating with either the camping, cars or looking sharp kits since only 2 of each die cut are included in a pattern paper pack. It will be a surprise as to what type of He’s the Man kit you receive as I run through my supplies. If you order the bundle priced kits ($18 option), I’ll try to include a variety pack:)

Friday Night In with 2 Year Anniversary Celebration!

It’s a Friday Night In and Saturday Morning Cuppa with our favorite group of global demonstrators this weekend. The Global SU Share Fair Facebook group is coming alive with a 2 Year Anniversary Celebration! We have had additional posts this week and have something special planned for our presentations that will have you seeing double.

Fellow demonstrators from across the globe collaborated for our first Facebook Live event in April 2020. Since then, we have purchased spotlights, camera stands and video equipment to make filming demonstrations easier and make the playback more enjoyable for viewers. We have expanded our virtual business to collaborate on pdf tutorials, Youtube VLOG Hops, Blog Hops and additional, themed Facebook Live events. We hope you have enjoyed the improvements!

I go live tonight, Friday, April 29th, 8pm central time and will probably be in jammies while filming:) The event starts at 6pm central time with demonstrators from Australia starting the event. We run through 11pm tonight with presenters starting every 30 minutes. Then pick it up on Saturday morning at 8:30am central and run for a few hours.

After you have watched all the presentations, you might want to place an order. Make sure to use host code DDFC79N4 so you can earn the special edition of the Pretty Paper Projects pdf idea file!

Need an invitation to join the private Facebook group? Contact me via my blog’s Contact button and ask for an invitation. Customers and my team members are eligible to join the group. So if you are not in either category, you have these two options to explore to be eligible for an invitation.

Hope you can be watching my presentation tonight, April 29th, at 8pm central to help keep me awake!
