I watched both your punch board tutorials!! They are fantastic! Then, I saw the one for the note pads you embellished, and it was great, too! Thanks so much for the easy to follow instructions for the punch board! What fun it's going to be to use it for so many things!!! :D

I'm torn between the Christmas and Halloween card as these are my Fave holidays. I like them all.


Patty, Thank you for sharing all your knowledge with us. This video about the file folders is the greatest thing. I am totally obsessed with file folders (who knows why). Thanks again.


WOW, these are so incredibly cute! I simply must try to recreate these for my coworkers' holiday cards! :)

Patty, thank you for the awesome video tutorial! I plan to show people at this month's classes how to make these darling cards. As for my favorite, I love the holidays, but am really drawn to the yellow and black card. I haven't played around with this idea, but I'm wondering if "regular" file folders can be make with the envelope punch board.


Your file folder cards rock Patty! Love the creativity and all of the samples that you have shared. Thanks!

Great video, now I have to go buy the Envelpoe Punch Board. I can not keep up. I need everything :)))))


I love this idea thank you for sharing such an awesome idea. Love it, love it.

The colors you chose for all of the projects are perfect. I can't wait to make them. And, I thought All I could use this punch board for was just envelopes. I really debated rather I would get much use from it.

Hi Patty!
Love your work. I'm wondering what type of adhesive are you using to put your designer paper on the file folders? At first glance I thought it was card stock until you explained in the video that you put the paper on the folder.
