Baby Girl Card Ideas!

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

One of the best purchases I have made in my lifetime has been my Die Cutting Machines and some dies because I have saved so much money (well, you know what I mean) by making my own cards like these baby girl card ideas! Doing this has given me a creative outlet in my cards and scrapbook layouts and have the capability to make original cards for others.  I love that and I know that all of you do too, since we share the same passion!

I made these cards mainly with Spellbinders dies and my brand new, pretty blue Sizzix Big Shot machine! I love the new face lift on it! Both cards were easy enough for a beginner and  a lot of fun to put together! It is so fun  making cards for new mommies and their babies! They are excited about every thing-including the cards! BTW- I kept the wax paper that I used to cut the butterfly out on it to soften the color of the card stock and it gave the embossed parts a naturally frosted look.

A Romantic Occasion Card Idea Using Sizzix!

Thursday, May 16th, 2013
We’re heading into wedding season which also means lots of anniversaries are celebrated as well during this time,  so I thought I would share a romantic occasion card idea using Sizzix Framelits 11PK w/ Stamps Love set.
They say if your married in June, you’re a bride all your life, so why not create a card that can be a keepsake for life! After all, we make cards because we love it and we want the recipient to love it too!
You can use your own color scheme to even match the brides colors if you choose, but I really wanted to use the brown patterned paper, and loved it with the blue.  I thought it looked rich and elegant.

A Mothers Day Page Layout

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

I came across this beautiful and old picture of my mom and me and my brothers and I thought this would make a great Mothers day Page Layout.  My father served in the Military my whole childhood so I had the privilege to grow up overseas.  This picture, I believe was taken in Europe, and so I wanted to use some products that would bring back some of those memories from my childhood.  First Edition has this beautiful paper collection called Noir et Chic and it went perfectly with this black and white photo. I also used KaiserCraft collectables called 75 cents and it is a really fun and unique die cut shapes with warm colors and that European feel is was looking for.  I used my Sizzix Big Shot machine to cut my QuicKutz die called Nesting Flowers, to frame around my picture.  I also used, as always, some bling from Want2Scrap and Hero Hues Chalk Ink to finish off my look for my layout.  I showed my mother and her reaction was perfect, I got a huge OMG!  that was all I needed to hear to know that she loved this layout and that it brought all the feelings and memories to her that I was trying to capture.  Happy Mothers Day mom, and I love you!!

If your mom is just getting into scrapbooking, or if you want to put together a quick album as a gift, Project Life by Becky Higgins is perfect! Project Life is a solution-based approach to scrapbooking that was created to simplify the process in order to allow you more time to enjoy life! It requires no glue, no scissors, no tools, and no skills of any kind. The design of these CORE kits takes the guess work out of layout design so that you can focus on recording your everyday moments through your photos and journaling.

Each Core Kit includes:

- 500 3×4 journaling cards (filler design printed on the back of each card)
- 40 Bi-fold Journaling Cards (when you have more time to write)
- 8 First Page Cards (4 cards are 4×6 + 4 cards are 3×4)
- 8 Last Page Cards (4 cards are 4×6 + 4 cards are 3×4)
- 60 4×6 Title Cards (for horizontal or vertical use)

NOTE: These contents are designed to be paired with Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Pages.

There is just so much to choose from! I’d better get shopping for some fun things for my mom.  She loves to scrapbook!

Remember to shop early as we may be waiting for some items to arrive from manufacturers.  We normally ask that customers allow 2-14 days for shipping, however, we ship orders as quickly as possible. If we have everything on shelf, we ship within 24-48 business hours! We fill orders in the order in which they are received.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Mini Petal Easter Basket!

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

I love making things to give away and this mini petal Easter basket is a quick and easy little gift for co-workers, friends and family members! My kids are all grown now, and they are all “watching what they eat”, so I thought this would be a perfect size to give each of them for just a little treat this Easter.  Definitely not enough to ruin their healthy living lifestyle, but enough to satisfy their sweet tooth!

This project was easy. I actually ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot Pro machine just because I wanted to use a 12 x 12 piece of paper, so I could fit 2 baskets per sheet, but this die will work in most of the manual die cutting machines, if the opening is approximately 6″ wide, such as the Cuttlebug or Big Shot machines. All the folds lines are made when the die is cut, so it is easy to crease. All you have to do is glue the tabs.

The handle was cut from the left over paper with my paper cutter to approx. 3/4″ wide and glued on the inside. I added the flower on the side and filled it will a bit of Easter grass and candy! So simple! Of course, you could use this for parties, bridal showers or other occasions with or without a handle!

All you need is:

Heavy paper or cardstock. I used First Edition Spring Drop 12 x 12 Paper Stack, but any will do.

Easter Treat Boxes!

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Today is officially the first day of Spring and everyone is looking forward to Easter next weekend, so I thought I would show you a couple Easter treat boxes that I made using my Sizzix Big Shot Pro and Bigz Pro Dies.  These are so incredibly easy, they literally only take a few minutes to make!

This first box is one I showed you at Christmas time, but change your paper and voila…you have an Easter box! One sheet of pattern paper (I like double sided for a prettier project), add labels, fill with treats, tie the ends with some ribbon and you are finished!

Does this next box look familiar? Of course it does! You dig your hands into one every time you go to the movies! I transformed a popcorn box into a Easter basket box! I could have added a handle, but it’s going to my little grand kids and will be destroyed within minuets, so why bother! This die does require 2 sheets of heavy paper or cardstock. Light weight paper can be used, but does not hold the shape as well.
