Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope Scrapbook Layout!

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

I’m positive that many of you can relate when I say I barely purchased this paper pack only to run right home to open the Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope for my scrapbook layout shown below. Even in the car, I kept picking it up to admire how pretty it was. Please tell me that I’m not the only one who does this! I just couldn’t wait to tear into it, especially since my daughter had just sent me the print of me and my new little granddaughter taken last week on the day I left them to come home after a 2 week stay to help with things after the baby was born. To be honest, I didn’t want to come home. I miss them terribly already! There are to many miles between UT and TX.

How grateful I am for technology which helps us be able to communicate so fast and easy these days. I am also grateful for beautiful products which enables us to document and preserve those precious memories we make with our loved ones. I am especially blessed to work for a company which allows me access to some of the best quality products which feeds my scrapbooking addiction! :)

Kaisercraft, Spellbinders and Scor-Tape are three of those products that I used on this project that made putting this layout incredibly easy! As usual, the hardest part was choosing which papers to use because they are all gorgeous!

I used all three dies in the set for my layout, using the oval die to cut the center out of the middle die, then cut a second piece for my center.

I actually used parts of 5 sheets total from the pack. One of them I just fussy cut the roses in the upper left corner to lay over the back sheet for dimension using foam squares. I also used foam squares on the sticker placed in the lower left corner over the Mystical Embrace die cut. It is not only a pretty layer, but if you look close, one of my dies slipped without my knowing and cut a chunk out of the larger piece and made it so the larger die didn’t cut all the way through the bottom, so the sticker covers it up very nicely! You probably wouldn’t have noticed if I hadn’t told you, but I hate to waist if I can save a goof up!

I also noticed that on one side of the sheets there is a pattern on the waste edge. Well, why not use this as well? The rose strip on both ends of the photo mat is exactly that! The rest of the embellishments are from the sticker sheet. I love them! Simple but beautiful. Totally works for me!

JustRite Stampers Owl Be There Stamp Set!

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

I was thrilled to get a hold of JustRite Stampers Owl Be There stamp set by Samantha Walker as I have just recently been blessed with another sweet granddaughter, who was proclaimed by her mother to be a “night owl” right from the get go, and we have kind of used an owl theme for this little girl that has been a lot of fun! My daughter made an owl receiving blanket, and crochet an owl beenie hat (adorable!) and I made an owl quilt for her. Purple seems to be the color choice for her as well.

So, since we already had an owl theme, when I saw the Owl Be There set I knew it would be the perfect choice to make her card with.

Owl Be There

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Clear Stamp Set includes twenty-four stamps with owls a tree stump and lots of little sentiments with an owl twist. It is really cute!

Even though I had to fussy cut around the owl and stump, this card was super easy! I colored the stamped images before cutting them out,  and I simply inked around the edges of the inner die cut and outer edge of the card. On the inside I used a sentiment I had from a Fiskar’s set.

Card Making: Spellbinders Filigree Egg Cards

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Easter is just around the corner, extra special for me this year because it’s my Granddaughter’s twelfth birthday and we’ll be there to share it with her.   I thought I’d like a couple of cards for family and friends to have on hand for Easter and this Filigree Egg Die D-Lites by Spellbinders was just perfect.  I so love Spellbinders filigree dies they cut so nicely and the impressions are clear, clean and crisp.

Filigree Eggs

Besides the egg die I also used Spellbinders Majestic Labels One die to form the front and back base of my card.  You simply cut two from the die, score one 3/4″ from the side.  By gluing the two together along the fold/scored line you create a hinge to form the basis of your card.

Filigree Eggs-001

The egg was cut twice, one was sprayed with Lindy’s Starburst – Love at First Sight Lavender, the second was left white.  I put pop dots on the lavender side and popped the white egg atop it, making sure the filigrees aligned.  All edges of the card base were inked lightly with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Milled Lavender.  The double egg was then placed on the center of the card base.  Adding a tulle bow, flower with a bling center is just enough pizzazz to finish the card.

Filigree Eggs-010

I used a rub on for my sentiment on the inside

Filigree Eggs-008

To finish the card I used Joy! Crafts Elegant Card Stand die to accompany the card.  (In order to make the easel a little sturdier I cut two, glued them together and then lightly inked the edges).  Hmm… notice there are two easels here?  That means there must be a bonus card idea in the video below, don’t miss it!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Sizzix Fancy Favor Box!

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Tomorrow begins the official start of spring, which means wedding, parties and showers, which means party favors, and this beautiful Sizzix Fancy Favor Box is perfect for any of these occasions!

IMG_7473

 

 

It is SOOOO easy to put together! All you really need is one sheet of 12 x 12″ double sided paper, adhesive and a small piece of acetate (I use the clear packaging that my dies come in-I’m cheap), ribbon and a sentiment. Yup, that’s it!

**This is a Big Shot Pro die, so it does require a Big Shot Pro Machine. I adore this machine, but then I am totally hooked on making the adorable boxes and bags that Sizzix has has created dies for. (Thank you Sizzix!)

Now, on to the extremely simple instructions.

1. Cut one piece of double sided paper
2. Fold along score lines
3. Apply adhesive-I prefer using Scor-Tape because I can easily control the placement and application.
4. Cover opening on front of box with acetate or clear plastic
5. Assemble box and lid -Approximate size: 2 5/8 x 3 7/8 x 2 5/8″ (assembled)
6. Stamp or apply sentiment to tag (I used another Sizzix die set with a similar tag for a smaller piece that I layered over the tag for a matted effect.
7. Attach tag to ribbon bow and attach bow to top of box.
8. Fill box with goodies and give away!

Well, it can’t get much simpler than that. You can use this little box for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers-you name it, all you have to do is coordinate paper with occasion!

Now you see why I’m a box junkie and Sizzix enables me to feed my addiction, so to speak-Hi, I’m Carrie and I’m addicted to making bags and boxes out of paper….. Oh, and my job kinda has a small part in allowing me to see all of the fun products on a daily basis. I just can’t help myself!!!! Is there a Scrapper’s Anonymous out there somewhere?

Anyway, I hope that if you have a Big Shot Pro machine you have as much fun with these fabulous dies as I do! If you only have a smaller Big Shot, you can enjoy creating smaller boxes with several fun Bigz XL, Bigz Scoreboard and Bigz Movers & Shapers dies, so don’t feel deprived. They are thinking of everyone!

Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!

St. Patrick’s Day Frame Using Spellbinders Card Creator Dies!

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

I don’t have many St. Patrick’s Day decorations, so I made this fun St. Patrick’s Day Frame Using Spellbinders Card Creator Dies and Echo Park St Patrick’s Day Sticker Accents.  Simple but fun.

IMG_7454

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I started with a wood frame that I picked up from one of our local craft stores.  I sanded the rough spots down, inked the edges of the frame with an ink dauber traced and cut the pattern paper, inked the edges, and applied Scor-Tape to the frame, then carefully laid the paper over the top. That was the hardest part of the whole project because I had to line up the paper without touching the tape or it would stick and I couldn’t lift it off.

I embossed the matting for the sticker I used inside the frame, and inked over the top to accent the embossed pattern. I used adhesive foam squares to support the Reflective Moment frame over the open area of the frame, since the opening of the actual frame is larger than the die cut. I used Glittered Accents to adhere the outer framework of the die to the  pattern paper.

To finish off the accents, I used adhesive foam squares on the clovers to lift them off the frame and add more dimension, cut pieces off some bling flourishes to place in the bottom corner and added dots of Crystal Stickles around the frame die cut. Done.
