SNS Fancy Folds Blog Hop


Good Evening! If you're here by way of Dawn Bennett, perfect. If not, click HERE to get you started at the beginning.
Welcome to the first SNS blog hop of 2013.
The Sparkle Team is so enthusiastic about our 2013 Blog Hops. Each hop will reveal a "theme" rather than just an "image category".

This hop features cards with amazingly-fancy folds! Anything OTHER than the "normal" fold.
Here is a picture of my card close both flaps will close in behind each other. I started off using Old Olive paper as my base. I used the Lilac House collection by Fancy Pants Designs for the rest.























Here is a picture of the card fully opened with 2 flaps.



 I found this card on Pinterest and had to try it out. You find it here;

Here is a close up of one of the flaps. 

You will find the complete instructions on how this card was made; http://sparklensprinkle.com/g/

Plenty of time to get all those comments onto each and every blog to become eligible for our great prizes!!!
Stamp Sets, Glitters (including the new Velvet Glitters), Embossing Powders, Flocking, etc.
To win a prize, leave a comment on each and every blo g thru-out the hop.

Three of the prizes are "hidden" on 3 different mystery designer blogs.  Even the designers don't know who has the prizes on their blogs - so don't miss any.
Leaving a heartfelt comment inspires, motivates and brings happiness to each designer!
For those who have hopped with us in the past, the heartfelt sharing you left on our blogs also touched our hearts!

HOW TO LEAVE A COMMENT:   Are you new to blog hops???  To find the comments section on each designer's blog, scroll down to the bottom of that day's post.  The word COMMENTS possibly will be very tiny.  Click on the word COMMENTS.  A box will pop up (or you may have to scroll down again).  Write your comment (be sure to add your name if you are using the Anonymous feature).   Perhaps one of those wonky SPAM preventer options will show up.  Just type in the shown characters and click enter.  That's all there is to it.  You will become an old hand in no time at all.  Designers covet sincere comments left on their blogs.  They share their artwork and hearts, hoping to inspire others.  Visitors who leave comments, in turn, encourage and inspire the designers.  If you absolutely cannot leave a comment for some reason, please e-mail brenda@sparklensprinkle.com with your comment  the name of the blog or designer you are commenting about.  Happy Hopping!!!
