Happy New Year!

Here’s to a Creative and Happy New Year to my Dancing Pen Community!

I realized late Tuesday night when I usually post and schedule my blogpost for the week that I had forgotten to get that done in all the rush of the year end and all the DPC projects I’ve been working on. Sorry about that.

Not that I wasn’t hard at work on things for you – I’ve been very busy on a number of projects that you will be seeing early in the new year! I’m excited to finally be getting these on the way – more about that soon!

I thought I would share a simple book/card project with you today. This is a four-page booklet folded from a single sheet of paper. You can use this idea with any size sheet of paper – the folds and slit will be the same. For this project I am using a sheet I created to make a Workshop Welcome booklet for my calligraphy classes. I still like the ideas in the booklet and thought they would be appropriate as we look at getting into courses and lots of learning this year. If you want to use this sheet as well, here’s the download link for the DPC Welcome Booklet.

Here’s the video instructions for you:

For those reading this by e-mail, here’s the link to the post & video.

Happy New Year!

  1. What a great idea, Evelyn. Downloading the template and following your step-by-step instructions worked perfectly.. Loved seeing the nice variety of fonts and especially enjoyed the way you used some fonts to complement the message in the text.

    1. Hi Kathleen,
      Glad to hear the project worked well. Maybe someday when I have extra time, I’ll do the Welcome booklet in calligraphy. 🙂
      I’m learning that sometimes you just do the best you can at the time, and this time I felt it was more important to share the ideas than get all perfect about the presentation.
