Pinewood Derby Sign

Friday, April 12th, 2013

I am the Cubmaster in our neighborhood and our Pinewood Derby is coming up so I thought that it would be nice to make a sign for the Scouts to take pictures in front of with their cars. I started looking through my stuff and found a wood grain stamp from Hero Arts and Heather found some paper for the car that had sparkly wood grain for the car from the Playtime Stack by Die Cuts with a View. I think that it turned out and it will make a fun backdrop for a lot of proud scouts holding their cars that they have worked so hard on. These kind of things are so easy and quick to do, if you have an event, especially a pinewood derby, go and get crafty and make a fun sign for it.

Cute Quickutz Easter Layout

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Hey it’s Easter time and here is a cute layout using Quickutz. Every year we get together as a family and have a big Easter egg hunt in my parents backyard. A few years ago my grandpa came and it was a lot of fun because he was able to turn back the clock a little and be a little kid again. It was so much fun to see the smile on his face as he walked around the yard hunting for those Easter eggs. My grandpa is gone now and I am grateful for pictures to bring back some of those memories.

I really like this paper from Authentique because it is very Easter but not the traditional pastel colors and this particular paper really matched the colors in the pictures well. Good paper makes everything a lot easier. Quickutz make this Easter set that is really fun with bunnies and chicks that really can fit any crafting project that you have. You can cut out these individually or cut a whole line of them at one time.

Valentine Cards with Heartfelt Creations

Friday, January 4th, 2013

I have a set that is a must have if you like to do hand made Valentine cards, Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour. The set though that i am talking about is the die cut set with its coordinating pre-cut stamps and paper pack. There is really no end to what you can do and you can create so many different looks so that no one is the same. Heather and I both made one last night using the same set and they bit are very different even though we used the same set.

I really like the paper stack not only because of the wonderful designs on each of the papers but also it comes with a lot of little sayings that you just cut out and add to your card. So again if card making is your thing then put this set one your must have list this Valentines Day.

“Die Cuts With a View” and “My Minds Eye” paper stacks

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Heather and I decided to do some card making with the Die Cuts With a View and My Mind’s Eye paper stacks this week. We have been invited to a lot of weddings lately so Heather wanted to make a few cards for them, so a few nights ago we put the kids to bed, threw in a movie, and made cards. Heather’s “Legacy Card” is very fancy and has a nice wedding feel to it with the ribbon, Vintage Lace Accents, and Spiral Blossom that she used. Heather loves the spiral blossom and it really makes for a nice three dimensional card. She left the interior dark and wrote a nice little congratulations note with a white ink pen. It really turned out nice don’t you think? Die Cuts With a View’s STARDUST Mat Stack was the perfect paper to use as the background because it looks very elegant with the interesting designs and gold foil they have added to it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My “Bee Happy” card isn’t as fancy but I had a lot of fun with it. I grabbed the My Mind’s Eye HONEY paper pad and Cricut’s Just Because Cards cartridge and made my card a bee theme.  The papers in the Honey paper stack made this card a breeze, I just had to cut it out and glue it on. The most work was the “Bee Happy” words, I cut the same letters out in both a dark and light yellow and then cut the light ones into strips and glued them onto the dark yellow letters. I though after that it would have been a lot easier just to find a striped paper and cut it out with it but hey I like doing things the hard way. I added a paper from the stack to go on the inside just to finish it off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a fun night of card making and hey we saved ourselves a trip to the store to buy a few cards. Being a designer is a lot of fun because if forces us to get down and get creative. It is way too easy to let life get in the way and keep putting off the things that you really enjoy doing.

New Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lace Border Die!

Friday, July 15th, 2011

I am so thrilled to introduce the Decorative Lace Border Die! It is a custom Heartfelt Creations Die manufactured by Spellbinders. This die coordinates with the Wedding Collection stamps. This die has more intricate details, so if you have a “loose” machine, you will have to cut a couple times. You will need to run it through your machine and cut once and then turn it 90 degrees and cut again.

I actually ran it 3-4 times through my Cuttlebug Machine then turned it before running it through 3-4 more times just to make sure! It is well worth the extra time it takes to cut it out! You will want to have either a QuickStik from QuicKutz, Pick Me Up from Silhouette, or pair of skinny craft tweezers to more easily poke through the holes! I love this die!

Since this is the season for weddings, I created an A2 wedding card using the Decorative Lace Border and Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Scroll stamp set. I scored my card stock using my Scor-Pal for an accurate fold. I used 1/8″ Scor-Tape along the main lines of the die cut and ribbon to place on my card. A little chalk to add color to the roses then I used foam adhesive squares just on the top of the scroll to give the some dimension.

 

I don’t consider myself a designer, but I definitely have fun trying! I love playing with all of the fantastic products we carry and showing off the finished project! My family gets pretty tired of me showing them. They tell me it’s fine without even looking at it! Can you relate? I thought so! Of course I’m the mom, so I rant an rave over their stuff! I guess that is just how it goes.

I hope that you all have a great weekend! Better get lots of sleep, because we will have lots to show you next week after CHA! You may have to stay up nights just to see all the new stuff!!!!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Spellbinders Borderabilities Dies!

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

I appreciate when customers email with questions concerning products that I can use on our Blog! One of our customers asked today for ideas using Spellbinders Borderabilities Dies. She also asked if she could use the 12″ Borderabilities Grand in her Cuttlebug Machine even though she did not have the Extended Cutting Mats.

Yes!  You can use the 12″  Grand Dies with standard plates if you are just needing a portion for a card or something short! Just make sure that you don’t bend the die where it is hanging over the edge!

If you do have the extended plates, you can cut the die cut to the length you need for layouts, cards, banners or other projects!

The Borderabilities  Petite generally come with 2 dies. One of the dies usually comes with only one cutting edge for a nice card border,  called an Accent Die. The Accent cuts the bottom edge and embosses the upper edge.while the other Border Die cuts and embosses on all sides for an actual border that you can place anywhere you choose!

You can also use these dies in the Sizzix Big Shot Machine, Big Shot Pro Machine, Vagabond by Tim HoltzQuicKutz Epic Six Tool, and of course, the Spellbinders Grand Calibur!

You can use these dies any way you want, the idea is to PLAY! That is the whole idea in creativity! See how many ways you can use them! Let the kids use the dies to decorate soup can pencil holders for their teachers, or for their homework binders to dress them up for school! That will keep them busy during the hot summer afternoons when they “are bored” because it is to hot to go outside!
