Using Nestabilities For Easel Cards - and a Special Thanx

Before I begin my post I want to thank a very special lady. My fellow DT friend, the lovely and ultra talented Jodie from Oz kindly offered to help me out yesterday. I've been trying to figure out how to turn my blog into 3 columns - and have even tried a couple of times without success - I'm not really the most computer literate amongst my peers. Jodie hopped onto my blog and within minutes I had 3 columns - unfortunately for my DH Jodie is my hero of the moment - LOL. I was hoping Jodie would post some of her marvellous creations here for me to take credit for at the same time - but alas you have to put up with my work - you can check out hers HERE ....

Thanx again Jodie - these are for you


Now onto my regularly scheduled post - ENJOY.......

Over the past couple of days I've received 2 emails from lovely ladies wondering how I make my nestie easel cards - how do they attach, what's the secret - LOL. The first lady asked me for some diagrams for a circle card as she wasn't sure about my written instructions - so I decided to quickly put together a photographic tutorial for her. The VERY next day the second email request arrived  - it's nice to feel like you're inspiring people to try new things!!! Once again I emailed off my pictures. It did make me wonder if anyone else out there would like them but was afraid to ask- so thanx to Dawn and Diane here they are for you too. PLEASE don't be afraid to email me with questions - I really don't cyber bite and will do my VERY best to help if I can...

For me it was the amazing Debbie Dolphin who inspired ME to make the nestie easels - so thanx Debbie - this is for you too.











If you want to check out the finished easel cards I've done there's a label called "Easel Cards" on my side bar - if you click on that it will come up with all the posts I've done with Easel Cards.
I hope this has helped...

Aha! And I love the three columns.

Where did I disappear to? First to take Clay to the Club for a golf match, then home to start dinner (stew), and then to my bed for a toes up. I've got to stop that bad habit. Such a waste of time!

Thank you for taking the time and expense to post a tutorial on how to do the circle easel cards. I have been seeing more and more of them, and have been very curious. Just in time for Mother's Day here in the States. I'm going to give it a try, and then teach my Sister when she comes to visit from California. Thanks again for your kindness. Linda S. in NE

Thanks so much for sharing. I was thinking only the top was a circle. so much cooler with both sides as a circle!

Eulanda said...

CraftinGranny said...

Thanks so much Debbie and special thanks to Eulanda for emailing me about your blog. Love the 3 column blog, it's so clean and neat. Now if you can do a tutorial on that it would really be something and be sure to let me know.
