Spellbinders Antique Frame & Accents Card!

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Have you got your hands on the newest Spellbinders dies yet? Oh my goodness, they just keep getting better! Today I want to show you a peek of the Antique Frame & Accents die. Very pretty! I really like the Accents and Motifs collection. They are all so intricate and elegant. If you are using these, you will want to give yourself a little more time to work the paper from your die. Being impatient may lead to torn die cuts! I like a pointed tool, such as a Quickstik, paper piercer (careful not to poke through your paper), or craft tweezers to assist in popping out my die cut.

The other materials I used for the front of my card are:

DCWV MS-003-00095-Chateau Lavender Mat Stack

DCWV MS-003-00096-Chateau Lavender Solid Cardstock Mat Stack

(Click HERE for Chateau Lavender products)

Inside I stamped the word and flourish with Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3449-Door To My Heart with Basic Brown stamp pad from Stampin’ Up and HCPD 3435-Feather Grass Flourish with a Versa Mark Pad, Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Antique Linen.

 

 

 

I know you are having as much fun as I am with your new dies! It is always fun getting something new and exciting to play with in the mail!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Quickutz Be Spooked Gone Batty!

Friday, September 30th, 2011

I have had more fun with the new Be Spooked and Be Stuffed Collections by Quickutz lately than I can tell you! These dies are not intended just for layouts and cards!

As you can see from my BOO wood project, I grabbed one of the DC0189-Nesting Ghosts and one of the DC0191-Bats to embellish. I have to admit that I have become a pretty simple crafter.  I don’t have a lot of time to play, but I still love to craft,  so I keep my projects fast and easy so I can actually complete them! If it gets to extensive, it may end up waiting unfinished in a box in a dark corner of the basement!

My daughter and I got together over the weekend and each made a BOO. We used some of last years DCWV Halloween paper to mod podge onto the painted wood letters. We added a couple coats to the die cuts to give them some stiffness and protection. I liked her idea of making our spiders out of black pipe cleaner and a brad!

We had a finished project in just a couple of hours and our little Claire was actually a good sport and let us have our fun as long as we kept giving her a few Gold Fish crackers and had plenty of Weebles for her to play with!

Here’s my FINISHED project!

I hope that you will be able to take some time this weekend to finish a Halloween project or two! Have a great weekend!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Die Cuts With A View Paper Stack Mania!

Friday, August 26th, 2011

How many times have I said that I love, love, love Die Cuts With A View paper stacks? Well then, I won’t say it again, but you get the idea! Not only do they have absolutely gorgeous patterns and color, but the weight is fabulous for almost any project! Whether you are making layouts, cards or altered projects, it is wonderful to work with! I also love the coordinating stack concept.

While we were at CHA Marcie took some video of some of the new DCWV products! Wow! My hats off to their incredible designers! Their artwork continues to inspire paper crafters world wide. I just watched a YouTube video of designers in Indonesia who created dresses for live models using DCWV paper! Incredible! DCWV also had items featured on the Today Show as part of a dorm room make-over. Way to go! If they are getting that kind of attention world wide, that says a lot to me. They have  Class A products and we are honored to carry them for our awesome customers!

Here’s some videos with some of the latest releases. You should be able to get some ideas!

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

Castle

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’!

DCWV And Graphic 45 CHA Booths!

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

I have been given the assignment of blogging about my favorite booth at CHA. It is really a tough decision because there were so many that were outstanding! So, I guess that I would have to tie Die Cuts With A View  and Graphic 45! Their booths were very different from each other, but both teams put tremendous effort into their booths to draw retailers and  spotlight their latest products. I was literally in awe of the inspiration that their design teams  shared with us!

DCWV was the first booth we saw, front and center, as we walked through the entrance! With their theme Christmas Morning, they captured my feelings as I viewed all the shiny new products in the convention center! It was like Christmas to me! All of their trees and presents were made from various paper pads, the cozy fire in the fireplace and living room setting, their prize buck mounted on the wall were  all made from their paper products!

I had the privilege of meeting several women on their team, including Erin who writes their Blog! They are all wonderful women and I had so much fun in their booth!

  Can you see what I mean? So warm and cozy that I could   have sat in the rocking chair and taken a nice long nap!

Graphic 45 had decorated other elements that I have a passion for- antiques (or at least faux antiques) with their incredible paper lines!  Their team was delightful and dressed in costumes featuring The Magic of Oz release, with Diane dressing as Dorothy for their daily drawing, and the Wicked Witch the rest of the day. In my personal opinion, she is way to sweet to be the Wicked Witch and way to classy! They were so busy that I wasn’t able to snap any pictures of them alone!

What did I tell you? Both are just so impressive that I just could not make a decision on one! I hope that you have enjoyed seeing a peak of the show! The creative energy was flowing through Chicago for sure! Have a great weekend!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
