Tuesday 10th November - TTT Neverending Card Tutorial with Elisa

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Tuesday TTT - Neverending Card.

I came across this tutorial on my facebook feed and gives very clear instructions on how to make this Neverending Card. Now I don't make cards very often so I was totally amazed by this and just had to try sure you seasoned card makers may have already tried this card and if that's the case show us how you make yours and put a twist on it!!

Here is the link for the tutorial on Youtube. I did notice she amended the measurements, so to make it clear for every measurement of 1 1/8 inch amend it to 1 3/8 inch instead.

and here is the link to the card that I made for my Mum's 70th.

and just in case you can't see the video here are some photos

Hope you enjoyed both the tutorial and my card!

You can see more of my work at

Turtle Soup Design Team Call 2016

Are you interested in being on a Design Team that has the old forum type atmosphere with lots of challenges, mini crops, sketches for both layouts and cards and just enough chatter to make it feel like home?
Well there is such a place at:
Take time to visit and view what we are all about.
The next term will be Jan - June 2016 and we are looking for about 2-4 new Designers.
1 month you do challenges (2-3) and the next month you do the Sketch DT reveal, a challenge for the mini crop and post the questions 1 day of the week all month. We have 2 teams that rotate the above schedule... any other questions feel free to ask. Most important we allow cross over multi tasking to make things easier if your on more than 1 team or more.
And just so you know there are usually 6 or 7 people in each Team and we support each other when life gets in the way.. so no worries as long as we get someone to cover for you. Also a bonus is that the full 6 month term calendar of schedules are available 6 + months ahead so you can work at your leisure. We like the no stress getting things done on time.
If all this sounds like a good fit for you please take the time to submit the following to:
and in the subject line: list your name and DT Call please.
We request that you submit about 4-8 projects boasting your creativity.
Share your bio which includes all teams past and present and also any publications online or other.
Share you email, FB, blog address and any other info you have that will give us a better knowledge of who you are.
