Last weekend I attended the Creating Keepsakes convention in Louisville with my friend Julie. We've been attending scrapbooking conventions together for several years and always have a great time shopping, attending classes and crops. This year we took two technique classes - one specifically on scrapbooking and one on stamping. In the scrapbooking class we learned folded ribbon, paper weaving, 3 dimensional paper flower, and flower dying techniques. In the stamping class we made a flower and a scalloped border from a heart shaped stamp, learned to make our own patterned paper, masking, and layering. Most of the stamping techniques I already knew but still had a great time making an adorable tag book, card and envelope. Writing about different techniques made me think of this tri-fold shutter card I made so thought I'd share it with you. I love making cards with a unique or fancy fold. On this one I used SU's Sense of Time stamp set, kraft and black card stock, oval punches, brads, circular paper clips, paper flowers, and ribbon as embellishments.

Love that card!! I haven't tried one of these folds yet, but you really make me want to!

I had so much fun! I wish we could go back again this weekend.
