Creative Creases Challenge #38

Anything Goes with a Fun Fold runs through August 18th @ 9:00 PM EDT

Welcome to the next Creative Creases Challenge! Firstly, thanks to all of you who participated in my last challenge! Wow, what great fun folds! I am so happy that you all took the time to play along. If you haven’t played in my challenge yet, I am so glad you are checking out my challenge and hope you will join in the challenge that’s starting today!


Meet the new Creative Creases Design Team member. Karen Finkle has been so helpful over the last two months, filling in for me while I struggle to get resettled in Chicago. Now, she will be joining me on the team permanently! Please, give her a warm welcome!

My name is Karen Finkle and I am a hobby demonstrator. I retired to Florida in 2000 after living in the Adirondacks (New York State) all my life. I was introduced to stamping in 2012 but I didn’t become a demonstrator until 2015. I have a daughter and son-in-love who live in upstate NY but are moving to TN. I have two adult grandchildren, one lives in Manhattan (the actor) and the other in the Adirondacks (the artist). My husband and son were avid supporters of my passion and I know they would both be proud of my growth as a stamper over the past three + years. My son’s cat Chester is now my support and is as much a part of me as is Designer Series Paper, cardstock, ink and everything else that goes along with card making. I have made an appearance as Guest Designer on several challenge sites over the years and now I have been asked to be on the Creative Creases Design Team! To say I am thrilled is an understatement. I hope you will enjoy seeing the creativity that comes from this next adventure in my life.

More Big News!

I am so happy to be partnering with the creative ladies of the Double Trouble Challenge for more fun *and* a chance at some cool prizes! 

If you’re new to Creative Creases, welcome!! Hope you will join the fun we have here, being creative with cards and 3D paper crafts.

All you have to do for our part of the challenge is create a fun fold card! It’s doesn’t have to be anything wildly intricate – just have fun with more than one fold or cut.
