Finally, some stamping!

You can probably tell by the plethora of blog pots today, that NSW school holidays have ended and my kids are back at school! I just love the holidays...letting go of the routine and spending time with my children are two of my favourite things in the world. Of course getting back into a routine and having some time to myself are two of my other favourite things!

I thought I would show you the second stamp-a-stack design from last month. We used the very cute Forest Friends stamp set (in the Spring Mini) to create some sweet little cards:

I kept these ones very clean and simple, with lots of white space. I also used a slightly different fold; I scored about 1cm in from the spine, and stuck down the scored section, so it opens up like a book. I know there's a special name for that type of fold, and they use it to describe photo albums that are made like that, but I can't for the life of me think of it (I would try googling, but I'm determined to get off this computer soon!!). Does anyone know the name of it??
