Scrapbook pages with Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create Dies

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, I am so excited to share some new dies that make is easy to create fantastic scrapbook pages, so today I will show you how easy it is to make scrapbook pages with Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create Dies! These dies are so versatile and will make it a breeze to create layout and cards. There are two sets of dies but you will want to get all four. There are also stamps and paper for this collection.

Here is a list of the supplies that I used for this project:

Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 1 A – SKU: HCD 749
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 1 B – SKU: HCD 750
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 2 A – SKU: HCD 751
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 2 B – SKU: HCD 752

Sizzix Big Shot Machine – SKU: 657900

I also used the following items from my stash, black and red patterned paper, red card stock and white card stock, Epiphany Crafts Shape Maker – Star.

For my layout I decided to use 5 pictures, I selected my paper and decided what dies that I wanted to use. I cut my mats using the A sets then my pictures using the B sets. You will need to get the corresponding A & B sets to use the dies the way they are intended to be used, but you will definitely want to get all four sets once you have had a chance to play around with them!

Once I had my pictures mounted I laid them out the way I wanted them and adhered them, all that was left to do was to add some finishing touches. I cut two of the arrows from the 1B set and did some journaling on them. I used my Silhouette Cameo for the title and used an tool shaper from Epiphany Crafts for the stars.

These dies make is so easy to get a scrapbook layout completed as you can see in the video above. To create a layout all you have to do is decide what dies you want to use based on how many pictures you want on the page. I am planning on doing a scrapbook layout of my granddaughter featuring a picture from each month for the first 12 months of her life.

Here is a look at my finished layout:

Here is a close up of the matting:

I cannot wait to make my next project using these dies. I just love that I can make a quick layout using lots of pictures seamlessly. I also wanted to mention that the stamps and the paper that go along with this collection are beautiful. I hope you like my project this week, stop back next Monday for another layout idea with these very versatile die sets. Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin!


Card Box Featuring Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Today I made a card box featuring new Heartfelt Creations products. This was a fun project. I first started seeing these cards recently. They have quite a few patterns that you can purchase at the Silhouette store,, so I decided to try one. I purchased a 4th of July card box and once I made it I realized how easy it would be to create your own custom cards with the base template. I created a template that I can use for any box card that I would like to make, just add my choice of embellishments and I have a custom card!

Before I get into the details of making the card here is a list of the products that I used that are available on the Cut at Home website.

Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 12 x 12 Paper Collection – SKU: HCDP1 245
Heartfelt Creations Birds & Blooms Rubber Stamp Set – SKU: HCPC 3617
Heartfelt Creations Summer Song Stamp Set – SKU: HCPC 3615
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 1 A Die Set – SKU: HCD 749
Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create 2 B Die Set – SKU: 752

Sizzix Bigz Heart Pendant Die – SKU: 659244
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Dusty Concord – SKU: TIM21445

I wanted to mention that I used my Sizzix Big Shot and Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo, both machines can be found on the Cut at Home website.

I used a few items from my stash, Gems, Lace, Pop Dots and Green Card Stock.

I started my project by cutting out the base files that I altered on my Silhouette, but don’t worry, I am including directions for you to use if you do not have a Silhouette too! See the diagram below:

photo 5

The diagram shows you the dimensions for the base of the box, the dotted lines are scores and the solid lines are cuts,except the score line above the 1/2 inch score should be a cut, that score line is just to make the tab so that you can adhere the box together. In addition you will need two pieces of card stock cut 3 3/4 inches x 1 inch, score both ends 1/2 inch in, these pieces will create the bracket pieces for inside of the box. For the accent paper you will just cut squares and rectangles a little smaller than the dimensions of the box sides.

Here is the video for the assembly of the box.

After folding and gluing the box I added the accent pieces. Then I created the sentiment to put on the card. I stamped the images and then colored the butterfly image with Spectrum Noir markers. The butterflies are from the Birds and Blooms set, the sentiment is from the Summer Song set.

Next I cut the elements for the card. I cut two of each of the flower die cuts that I used in the green card stock, I glued them together to give the pieces more stability. Then I cut one each of the flowers in the purple card stock, I cut the flowers off of the die cut piece and glued them onto the green pieces, then I added some gems. For the Butterflies I used the Sizzix Bigz die, even though the die is a dimensional banner die you can use the elements individually for many other projects, I cut two butterflies in the purple card stock and two in the patterned paper, I adhered them together in the center and added some gems. Finally I cut the little It’s Your Birthday ticket from the Cut Mat Create paper. Once I had all the pieces assembled I was ready to add them to my card.

The video shows how to add the pieces, I just played around with my pieces until I was happy with how they looked, I used pop dots for dimension. You can add the elements to the inside or outside of the inner brace pieces, this also gives the card dimension.

Here is a look at the finished card folded:

Here is a look at the card opened:

And finally here is a look at the elements up close so you can see the dimension.

These cards are so much fun to make, I hope that you will give it a try! I know I will be making more of them! I hope you enjoyed my project this week, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin.


Fancy Fold Card Using Bo Bunny Primrose Collection

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Today I wanted to try a new Fancy Fold card using BoBunny Primrose Collection and Spellbinders Die D-Lites Antique Corner die. Before we get started here is a list of the supplies that I used that are available on the Cut at Home website.

Spellbinders Die D-Lites, Antique Corner – SKU: S2-072
BoBunny Primrose 12 x 12 Collection Pack – SKU: 16016308
Sizzix Big Shot – SKU: 657900
Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T

Other supplies used: BoBunny Primrose Gems, White Card Stock, Washi tape and the Double Diamond Fold Card Template by Castlepark Designs, the template can be found at

photo 1 (2)

My video this week walks you through how to make a fancy folded card using a double diamond fold card template, it really looks more complicated that it is.

For this card I used a piece of white card stock cut to 12″ x 7″, using a scoring board you can either mark 1 1/2 inch or as I did in the video just put a little mark there with the scoring board, next score at three inches and again at 4.5 inches. You will do the same on the other side of the card. Next you will score from the 1.5 inch mark to the 4.5 inch score line from top to bottom on a diagonal, you will do this again from the 4/5 inch to the 1.5 inch mark, this will create a diamond pattern, repeat on the other side. Finally when you look at the template you will see two lines that are in yellow, these pieces get cut off, I scored the line first so I knew where to cut it. Also on the template the different colors represent which way the paper gets folded, the blue lines are valley folds and the green lines are mountain folds.

Once you get all of the scoring and folding done you can cut the patterned paper pieces. I wanted to find an easy way to create the pieces so I decided to make a template for the pieces on my Silhouette. They came out very well and I can send anyone that is interested the cut files. If you do not have a silhouette you can cut the patterned paper a little smaller than the folded area to create a boarder.

photo 2

Once I had all the pieces cut I adhered them to the card base, next I cut two of the Antique corners using my Sizzix Big Shot and placed them on the front of the card, then I cut an image on the Silhouette for the inside of the card, I used the print and cut feature for this image. Finally I added some Washi tape, a sticker boarder from the BoBunny 12″ x 12″ collection, and added the bling which is also from the BoBunny Primrose collection. Another helpful hint is I added four pieces of patterned paper to the back of the white card stock so when the card was folded it would show on the front instead of the white card stock, this gave the card a finished look.

Here is my finished card:

I really like how this card turned out, the next time I make it I think I am going to add a magnetic closure or something, maybe a twine tie to keep it closed, but it was a fun project! Here is another view with the card open.

I hope you like my project this week, please let me know if you would like the Silhouette files. Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin!

silhouteet 6-3

Wedding season is here and what a better way to use our Silhouette Cameo than for all those wedding cards. Today I am dusting off the cameo and getting to work using a card that can be bought directly from the Silhouette Studio. Combining this cutting file with a beautiful and easy water color background, the effect gives this card an elegant feel.

The color was inspired by the bride’s color scheme of teal and pink. This card can also be easily given for a bridal shower too!

Let’s get started.

1. Purchase & download”Wedding Dress Card” by Angela Angelova from the Silhouette Studio.

5. Water color card using 2-3 colors and let dry (Or dry with heat embosser)

6. Glue water colored paper behind the card using foam adhesives.

Scrapbook Layout with Blossom and Scalloped Nestabilities

Monday, June 9th, 2014

Happy Monday everyone! Today I did a scrapbook layout with Blossom and Scalloped Nestabilities. This is a fun very colorful layout that includes inking the die cut shapes. Here is a list of supplies I used that are available here at the Cut at Home Website.

Spellbinders Blossom die set – SKU: S4-192
Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles – SKU: S4-143
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 12 x 12 Paper Pad, Spring Dust – SKU: 4500889
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Ripe Persimmon – SKU: TIM32830
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Mustard Seed – SKU: TIM20226

I also used a few items from my stash, yellow and orange card stock, Anna Griffin Embossing Folder and some Queen & Company Pearls.

This was a fun page, I love all the colors in my Granddaughter’s dress so I couldn’t wait to scrap this page! The Spellbinder’s Blossom Die was the perfect choice. I also decided to use the Scalloped Rectangle die for the title and to create a little border element around the pictures. I used the Graphic 45 paper Spring Dust for the background, then I cut 3 of the largest rectangles and 1 of the third largest rectangles out of the yellow card stock, and one of the second largest rectangles out of the orange card stock. The I cut the blossoms, I cut 3 of the smallest blossoms, 3 of the second largest, 3 of the third largest, 2 of the fourth largest and 1 of the 5th largest blossoms for my flowers. I also cut the title So Cute on my Silhouette Cameo. Next I did the inking.

photo 2 (1)

After I completed all of the inking it was time to assemble my layout, I always as a rule of thumb do not adhere any of my elements until I am sure they are arranged exactly as I want them. So when I assembled this layout I adhered all of the separate pieces first, then placed them on the page and moved them around until I was happy with the placement, then I adhered them to the page.

Here is the finished product:

I really like the dimension that the inking gave the flowers, it really made them pop!

I hope you enjoyed my project this week, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin,

Darice Embossing Folders and Letterpress Technique

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Today I wanted to try a technique using Darice embossing folders and letterpress technique. I saw this technique from Spellbinders and wanted to give it a try. You use your embossing folders and ink pads to create a kind of letterpress look with your embossing folders. Before I get started here is a list of the products that I used which are available at the Cut at Home website.

Darice Scrolls Embossing Folder – SKU: 1215-49
Darice Dot Embossing Folder – SKU:1217-67
Sizzix Framelits Die Set, Banners Pennant Scallop – SKU: 657571
Silhouette America, Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T
Sizzix Big Shot – SKU: 841182068880

photo 1 (4)

Supplies used from my stash, Darice core’dinations Pearls card stock, ink pads, brayer, gems, washi tape and twine.

This is a fun technique, but it may take a couple of tries, I used the Big Shot for the embossing, it worked well, you just have to make sure that you use flat plates so that the pressure is even when embossing. My video demonstrates how to do the letterpress technique.

I started with a card base of 10″ x 7″, I scored it at 5″ to make a 5″ X 7″ card. I cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ card stock for the letter press technique, I also cut a 4 1/2″ x 6″ card stock for the border around the embossed piece. Once I had the embossing done I used my Silhouette to cut out the letters and numbers. The card I made for my demonstration is a graduation card. To assemble the card, first I bordered the side and bottom edge of the card base with washi tape, then I adhered the embossed card stock to the 4 1/2″ x 6″ card stock, then I adhered them to the card aligning the card stock to the top of the card, leaving an even boarder around the two sides and the bottom. Next I adhered the twine to the top of the card for the banner pieces. Next I adhered the banner pieces, then I added the words Class of 2014 and congrats, finally I finished off the card with a little touch of bling!

Here is the finished graduation card:

I wanted to show how versatile this design is so I went ahead and created a birthday card using the same format, I was amazing how different the cards look just changing the colors and wording! To make the birthday cards follow the above directions for assembly, just change the wording.

Here is the finished birthday card:

This was a fun project and I really liked the results, there are so many things you can do with embossing folders! I hope that you enjoyed my post this week, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin!
