Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD is HERE!

If you love Fancy Folds and Motion projects, or have ever wanted to try them, here is your chance! Pat Huntoon of Technique Junkie Newsletter has announced pre-ordering for a CD with 60 tutorials (ships in November). Half of them are collected from previous issues of the Newsletter, but 30 of them are brand new. All tutorials are step-by-step, with a picture for each step, plus a list of all materials and cutting dimensions. If you want to work from paper instead of your computer, the tutorials are already set to print out in 8 1/2 x 11 format - perfect! The CD also has wonderful finished examples of each technique to inspire you, including the one below that I made called the "Tri-Shutter". This is SO much easier than it looks and is one that you really should try as soon as you receive your CD.

The stamps on this card are by Stampin' Up. The sentiment was printed on my computer.

The CD is $17.95 for US and Canadian Residents (Overseas, $19.95US). You can order 3 ways:

1. E-mail Pat Huntoon for an invoice.
2. Send a check to Pat Huntoon, PO Box 16547, Stamford, CT 06905
3. Go to this page on the Technique Junkie site for a direct paypal link. Note that you do not have to have a PayPal account to use PayPal. You will be given the option to use your credit card info as you would with any other on-line order.

Woo Hoo - New Crafting Ideas!!
