Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas

Boys Dinosuar Page Layout

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Heather and I ordered this paper stack from DCWV because we have noticed that we have’t really done many boy things with the blog, so here is a boys dinosaur page layout that we did for our son’s scrapbook. A few years back we were able to go to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point and we got some really cut pictures that were perfect for this page but don’t think that you have to have “dino” pictures because boys and dinosaurs just go together, just ask my son Turner because he was in heaven at the Dinosaur Museum.

This page was a lot of fun to put together. All we did was choose our paper from the Boyhood Stack and then find paper to match for the flags and cutouts. The flag stamps are from Hero Arts and can be used on so many different designs when you just need to fill a spot. You will probably see them used on some more projects of ours in the future. Heather also found that the new Spellbinders Tile Works die worked well  for the date and photo matsIt is a really great die for boys!

Clowning Around

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Here is our Clowning Around page layout that you can use for all the clowns in your family. Heather and I made 13 of these pages because Heather is part of a scrapbook exchange. With this exchange they get together every three months (Girls Night) and they each get one page from everyone else. It is really nice because she gets fresh ideas and has a bunch of pages that she just needs to add the pictures.

This layout was a lot of fun and even better when we found these pictures or our kids clowning around. We used DCWV’s the Kidlet Stack because it had this great paper that we thought liked like the circus. We also used a lot of bling because when we got it done it just felt like it was missing something, I am sure you have done that before so if that ever happens just grab some rhinestones from Want2Scrap and it can really finish off a layout.

Heather loves this exchange because she gets a lot of pages out of it, a girls night out, and it keeps her scrapbooking. If you don’t do something like this just find a few friends that scrapbook and see if they would like to do it and you will be surprised how quickly it will grow.

Crafty Name Blocks using Die Cuts With A View

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Heather wanted to create these crafty name blocks for our kids using Die Cuts With A View’s A Type of Art Mat Stacks as a Christmas present for our kids this year–Shhhhhh because our kids don’t know about it yet. Every year we like to include something hand made for our kids and every year they are some of the most exciting for them to open to see what mom and dad have been working on. If you have never used Mod Podge you should give it a try because it is really quick and creates a nice finished look.

3 Easy steps:

Step #1- cut block and paint it

Step #2-glue on your design (Paper, letters, die cut, etc.)

Step #3- Paint a light coat of Mod Podge over all of it (don’t worry it dries clear)

Heather did a great job adding bling to this one as well. She found some little flower embellishments and used the Spellbinders Vintage Lace Motif Die set to make it a little bigger and bolder. I love the colors together and I know that Trista is going to love to find a spot in her pink room for this

Scrapbook The Firsts!

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Most of us will take photos of the first milestones in our children’s lives and scrapbook them as quickly as possible, but do we remember to even think about ourselves and the milestones that we reach? Sometimes the big stuff, but not always the little things. Like the fist gray hair….

I spotted my first gray hair about a week before I turned 45. I wasn’t sure if it was really gray or if the light in my bathroom was playing tricks on me, so I yanked it out! Sure enough, it was actually white! I just looked at it like child inspecting a blade of grass. I was more curious that anything. Did this really come out of my head? I don’t feel old enough to get a gray hair!

I sat there looking at it for a few minutes trying to sort out my feelings about this, then decided that I should scrapbook it for sure! I was only a month and a half away from becoming a grandma, so this was monumental! I was running late for work, so I set it down in a place where I could see it later and off to work I went! Later that night I was doing something around that spot and then, in panic, remembered the hair! I searched all over, but alas, it was no where to be found! To tell the truth, I was sad! I really wanted to scrapbook it! I had to wait over 6 months later to find my second one, so it became my substitute. I had my son take a picture of me (he already knows I’m a little weird) and was ready to archive my gray hair. Why not? My mom saved my first haircut!

When I saw the Teresa Collins Noteworthy paper, it was perfect for what I wanted in my page!

Other supplies used:

Quickutz- English Rose Alphabet

Spellbinders- Labels Twenty Three 2 3/8 x 3″ die, Grand Labels Twenty Three 6 1/4 x 5″ die, Grand Rectangles 4 x 5″ die and Retro Mod Clocks

DCWV- Metallic Stack

Tim Holtz- Idea-ology Word Sticks

Fiskars- Clear Stamps

Creative Memories- clear envelope

I would like to challenge each of you to think of something that has been a first for you recently and scrapbook it! Maybe it was trying sushi for the first time or a new hairstyle. What did you think? Take a picture and make sure you journal how you felt at the time. Firsts are important no matter how old you are!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!


Fantastic Back To School Dies And Paper!

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

It’s that time of year when school bells are ringing and yellow buses are back on the road and homework is part of the nightly routine. Mom’s are exhausted just trying to get the kids out the door and peanut butter is a staple for sack lunches. Before you sent the kids out the door for the first time, you will want to capture the first day on your camera and we have all the needed products that will help you scrapbook those school day memories! Just check out our School category!

Graphic 45  An ABC Primer Collection is shipping now! A happy-go-lucky paper collection that pays homage to the vintage schoolhouse and classic nursery rhymes of times gone by. Recall fond memories from a simpler time when learning took place in a one-room schoolhouse, and cozy afternoons were spent studying the three Rs: reading, writing and arithmetic. This collection includes :

An ABC Primer 12×12 Paper Pad, An ABC Primer 8×8 Paper Pad, An ABC Primer Chipboard Tags 1, An ABC Primer Chipboard Tags 2, and stamp sets in collaboration with Hampton Arts-An ABC Primer 1, An ABC Primer 2 and An ABC Primer 3.

DCWV‘s Grade School Paper Stack  and Grade School Mat Stack are perfect for younger kids, and the High School Mat Stack is stylin’ for the older ones!

QuicKutz offers a large variety of school related dies that can help you embellish pages for all of your children from Pre-School – Collage!

I no longer have young school age children but if I can give any advise, it would be to record those days as soon as possible because you don’t remember things like you think you will and you don’t get any more time once they leave! There are still only 24 hours in a day and other things will fill in that time before you know it (like grandchildren)!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!




New Spellbinders Edgeabilities Dies!

Monday, July 25th, 2011

I have had the opportunity to “test drive” a few of the brand new Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies and I believe that you are going to be just as pleased with these dies as the rest of your Spellbinders collections! The Edgeabilities are so versatile in that once you buy all 6 sets, you can mix and match to make over 75 different designs for your paper crafting projects! See all NEW Spellbinders Edgeabilities Video!

I  decided to use the Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilies on my scrapbook layout with one of the decorative inserts. Each set comes with one cutting edge and two decorative inserts that are easily interchangeable because of their 1″ spacing.   It is nice that the length of the dies are 8″ even though I still had to run it through twice for cutting and twice for embossing to be able to get the whole 12 x 12page length.  It made it easier to place so that I could cut all the way across! The possibilities are endless with these dies!

The other items I used in this layout are as follows:

Graphic 45 products:

The Magic of Oz 12 x 12 paper pad

The Magic of Oz Chipboard Die-cuts 1

Spellbinders products:

Postage Stamps (2011 CHA summer release)

Donna’s Alphabet by Donna Salazar (2011 CHA summer release)

QuicKutz products:

Nesting Stars (2011 CHA summer release)

Nesting Scallop Rectangles (2011 CHA summer release)

Whirlpool Alphabet


DCWV Shimmer Mat Stack

I know that you will have a blast creating with these new dies whether you are in to scrapbooking or card making! They are also great for alternative paper crafts! Spellbinders designer Heidi Blankenship showed me how she used wool felt with the Edgeabilities at CHA! So fun! Now I have to get some of that and share the tip with you!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
