Criss-Cross Card with Sweet as a Peach

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I have a Criss-Cross card for you. I saw one by Leena Girsa on Instagram and I loved the look of it. I haven’t made one of these in years!! Guess what? It’s so simple and so much fun to do. I will be doing a video on it next Thursday in my Prime Time group. This card will also be a part of the monthly lineup for Virtual Coffee and a Card class in July. Let’s take a look.


Criss-Cross Card


The you’re a Peach designer series paper lends itself perfectly to this style of card because the patterns coordinate so beautifully together. I think I may have fallen in love with the criss-cross card.



Here you can see what the insert inside looks like. Of course you could stamp the inside with another sentiment and more peaches but I left it plain with just a 1/4″ by 5 1/4″ strip of patterned paper. If you make a criss-cross card, I would love to see your creation!

How Does it Work??


Well, that’s a loaded question. Do I mean how does the card work, or do I mean, how does the Demo Design Dream Team work? First the card. You actually take two card bases, each 4 1.4″ by 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ and then trim one card front on both of them and layer them together. The following picture will help. The rest of the instructions are in the DDDT tutorial.

The Demo Design Dream team is a group of 14 very talented demonstrators across North America. Actually, I think it is all Americans and I am the token Canadian!! Together we create a monthly tutorial which is free with a $60 purchase. Very soon I will be posting previous tutorials which will now be available for sale at $15 each. Each month has a theme, so you will undoubtedly be able to find something you love. Tutorials help you create beautiful cards with no stress. You can see all my tutorials here.


In Person Class Soon??


I am really hoping to be able to offer my first in person class in a very long time. Tentative plans are for Tuesday July 20 at 9:30am. Cost will be $25 for four cards and of course coffee, tea and treats. If there is a lot of interest I will offer an afternoon and evening session as well. If you bring someone new then you will each only pay $20. The class will be the same one that I am doing for my virtual coffee and a card. Makes sense doesn’t it?

Recent Absence

Hello stampers and belated and late happy Wednesday to you! I wanted to explain my recent absence. You know it is not like me at all to not be consistent. I thought it would make me feel a lot better to just write a quick note to you all!!


Recent Absence


Tomorrow it will be a week since I got home from the Netherlands. It is always a bit of an adjustment to go from being with the person you love so much to being apart. Once again I have to do a mandatory 14 day quarantine. Usually I go crazy in my stamp room, but this time I ventured into the garden instead. It felt so good to attack all the weeds and to create some new flower beds as well. Truthfully, I lost myself in nature and I decided that was ok. It must have been what I needed.

I also spent a lot of time on the phone with my siblings, with my mom and with my kids. This too was a wonderful thing. Sometimes work has to take the back burner. For an independent business owner this is not an easy thing to do. Quite truthfully, I have also noticed that my sales are down a fair bit and that doesn’t feel good at all.

Nonetheless, I know that God is in control and that He is leading me to make the decisions that I am making and I have peace. I am no longer going to scramble like a mad woman trying to offer more classes and deals just to get people to buy. My customers will buy when and if they need to do so. I trust that my needs will also be met and I will find joy in sharing what I love.


Book and a Bath


For now I am going to run a nice deep, hot bath and read a good book. I made LOTS of beautiful cards today using the Sweet as a Peach suite which will be the focus for next month’s virtual coffee and a card class. If you want to sign up for that, I would be very pleased. You can do so here. On Friday I will be back in the saddle with lots of card pictures for you and hopefully there will be some videos tomorrow. In my Prime Time group I will be teaching a magic slider card. It took me about three hours to finally figure it all out (with some distractions of course). For the video tomorrow it will be much quicker I promise. If you want to join this great group you can! Here is the link.

Just a heads up that I cannot include stamped images in the kit, so you will definitely want to order this bundle to be able to finish off your cards in style!

I hope you have a super day and I will see you again tomorrow. Big hugs from Jackie.
