Just Because Card Idea With Spellbinders

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

I wanted to make a Just because Card Idea with Spellbinders this time, just because.  I really love the dies from Spellbinders and QuicKutz and I have used them a few times in my Blogs but I just could not resist using them again.  I love how simple and east this card is to make and with little product as well.  I used a warm color red for my card stock and then a piece of scrap paper from my other designs.  Then I used Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One as well as QuicKutz, Nesting Flowers die to finish off my card.  This card is fast to make and can be used for any occasion and Just Because you wanted to brighten someones day!!

Marianne Design Butterfly Card

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Spring is FINALLY showing its face here in Utah, and to go along with the warming weather, I wanted to share my Marianne Design butterfly card that I made to celebrate! I can never get enough butterfly dies and this one is gorgeous! I also like how big it is. It really pops on a card or layout.

I also really liked the Blossom embossing folder by Crafts Too, and it worked really well with the butterfly. I ran my A2 card through the folder first, then took my ink pad and lightly ran it over the embossed area to help it stand out.

Here all of the products I used:

LR0113- Marianne Design Creatable Die Butterfly 1

658954- Sizzix Thinlits Borders

AF146- Hero Hues Shadow Ink Soft Pool

S5-159- Spellbinders Gold  Labels Four

CTFD3048- Crafts Too Blossom

2160- Want2Scrap Mother of Pearl Rhinestones

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

A Note For You A2 Card!

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Everyone likes getting something in the mail box, so I made this “A Note For You” A2 card for someone I know who could use a special note. I totally love the blue and brown color combo in the Authentique Hope 6×6 paper pad, not to mention the elegant patterns!

Hope includes twenty-six doublesided sheets of reduced designs with two solids. The Hope collection is in an elegant color palette suited to the splendor of the Easter holiday printed on a special textured finish akin to the weave of an Easter basket. The feelings of renewal with a nostalgic design pattern stir up emotions of hope. Reminiscent of Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit and other classic icons, the patterns are also suitable for any spring celebration. The Hope collection is well-rounded and useful for all age ranges and projects. Also comes in an 8×8 paper pad and a 12×12 collection kit.

The patterns I chose gave this card a vintage look and a little inking around the edge gave it an aged feel. Perfect!

By now you should all know that I am all for fast and easy, but I want my finished product to look good, and with the right tools, that can easily be achieved!

Here are the list of tools I used to create this card in just a short time (while sick and on the phone with my traveling hubby at the same time!).

HOP012-Authentique Hope 6×6 Paper Pad

HCPC 3475-Heartfelt Creations Special Delivery (sentiment)

S5-160-Spellbinders Opulent Ovals

6079-Want2Scrap Baby Bling-Le Creme Pearls

AF214-Hero Arts Cup O’ Joe Ink Pad

I love the Hero Arts ink pads and how the image fills in while the ink dries! They are really nice to use. You can see their awesome selection HERE!

I would just like to tell all of you who call in and tell me about your latest projects, that you inspire me! You help me stay motivated and give me lots of ideas. Even though I can’t really see what you are doing, I develop a mental picture, which inspires me to create my own version! I love hearing what you are planning with the products you purchase! I hope our designers inspire you as well in our blog posts!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Quick Handmade Invitation Idea

Friday, January 25th, 2013

If you have an event coming up that you are going to need invitations for, skip going to the store because here is a quick handmade invitation idea that you can use. Heather was asked to make the invitations for “New Beginnings” in our ward and so we had to come up with an idea that we could get done in a night so we grabbed  our vellum and printed the invite on it and then just backed it with some cute paper. The theme of the year is “Up” and so we looked in our paper stash and found this perfect balloon paper by Bo Bunny that fit the theme perfectly. We got the idea from our wedding announcement where we did the same thing but put a picture behind it. Just hole punch two holes in the top and string ribbon through them to attach the two papers. Next add bling and if you choose you can even make an envelope–we added some decor to the cover using Spellbinders filigree die cut.

This was a fun little project that heather and I cranked out in just a few hours. We have paper for really any occasion you can think of sending invitations out for so give this a try next time you have a get together you need to send invites out.

Create Your Own Envelopes With The Scor-Envi!

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

If you are an avid card maker, you will really appreciate being able to create your own envelopes with the Scor-Envi from Scor-Pal! This little gadget is awesome, and it works right along with the Scor-Pal V.3 as shown in the photo.

The Scor-Envi is designed to be used with the latest version of the Scor-Pal (inch version) and helps you to create 12 different size envelopes including the most used A2 envelope and lots of square envelopes too. A chart is printed on the tool for handy guidance. If you like to do embossed grids and diagonal scoring patterns this is the perfect tool. Envelopes and diagonal scoring is now a breeze!

Please note: this tool requires 1/4″ grooves to make the standard size envelopes, so it will only work with the latest version of the Scor-Pal NOT the earliest version.

I did some playing around and found that you can also use it with the original Scor-Pal, but you will have to make adjustments as to how you do it. I will show you how I made that compromise in the video below, however, I have since ordered myself the newer V.3 as it will be much more convenient and I will not have to think about how I can finagle the measurements. If you already have the V.3, you will still find the video helpful, but you won’t have to make any adjustments for the measurements!

This is a brilliant little invention that is very inexpensive at $6.99, and will pay for itself in no time as you can make your own custom envelopes with the paper or card stock you have on hand! Now you can finally have perfectly matching envelopes for your hand crafted cards!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Make a wish with Spellbinders Up, Up and Away

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Make a wish with Spellbinders Up, Up and Away. This set includes the hot air balloon that you see here but it also has a kite, balloon, flag, and a paper airplane. I love the size of the die cuts because they work great for both cards as well as full page layouts.

I started out by cutting the balloon out but because of the pattern on the paper I couldn’t see the embossed design, so I cut out three more balloons and cut parts of them out and glued them on. This is so easy to do and creates a much more interesting final product. When I put it on the background, the balloon seemed to almost disappear so I just antiqued the edges a bit to give a distinction between the foreground and the background. This is one die cut set that will stay at the front of my collection especially with children (my son likes the paper airplane). I am looking forward to trying out some of the other shapes in the set on some scrapbooking pages.

I also can’t say enough about these little paper packs, they make your life easy because you don’t need to think about color combination because every paper uses colors that really work well together. For this card I used My Minds Eye’s Life of the Party 6×6 pack. Designing couldn’t get any easier right?
