Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas


Scrapbook Layout with Blossom and Scalloped Nestabilities

Monday, June 9th, 2014

Happy Monday everyone! Today I did a scrapbook layout with Blossom and Scalloped Nestabilities. This is a fun very colorful layout that includes inking the die cut shapes. Here is a list of supplies I used that are available here at the Cut at Home Website.

Spellbinders Blossom die set – SKU: S4-192
Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles – SKU: S4-143
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 12 x 12 Paper Pad, Spring Dust – SKU: 4500889
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Ripe Persimmon – SKU: TIM32830
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Mustard Seed – SKU: TIM20226

I also used a few items from my stash, yellow and orange card stock, Anna Griffin Embossing Folder and some Queen & Company Pearls.

This was a fun page, I love all the colors in my Granddaughter’s dress so I couldn’t wait to scrap this page! The Spellbinder’s Blossom Die was the perfect choice. I also decided to use the Scalloped Rectangle die for the title and to create a little border element around the pictures. I used the Graphic 45 paper Spring Dust for the background, then I cut 3 of the largest rectangles and 1 of the third largest rectangles out of the yellow card stock, and one of the second largest rectangles out of the orange card stock. The I cut the blossoms, I cut 3 of the smallest blossoms, 3 of the second largest, 3 of the third largest, 2 of the fourth largest and 1 of the 5th largest blossoms for my flowers. I also cut the title So Cute on my Silhouette Cameo. Next I did the inking.

After I completed all of the inking it was time to assemble my layout, I always as a rule of thumb do not adhere any of my elements until I am sure they are arranged exactly as I want them. So when I assembled this layout I adhered all of the separate pieces first, then placed them on the page and moved them around until I was happy with the placement, then I adhered them to the page.

Here is the finished product:

I really like the dimension that the inking gave the flowers, it really made them pop!

I hope you enjoyed my project this week, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin,

Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy-Day Seven!

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Here we are, already on day seven of Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy! Can you believe it? Only two days left! I am in awe of today’s products and designer projects! We have some spectacular things to show you today, so let’s not waste another minute!

Designer Linda Duke introduces Spellbinders first item of the day S5-090 Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities with two projects that fit the name! There is most definitely an elegant, romantic touch to her projects which truly proves paper crafting an art! These are wonderful Linda!

Product sizes:

1. 1 1/4 x 1″
2. 2 7/8 x 1 7/8″
3. 4 1/4 x 2 3/4″
4. 5 7/8 x 3 7/8″

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There must be a romance in the air, because designer Sherry Cheever has designed her projects with a similar feel. The intricate S5-064 Moroccan Accents and S5-065 Moroccan Motifs was her inspiration to create her lovely box and lantern below. Thank you Sherry!

S5-064 Moroccan Accents:

 

Product sizes:

1. Border: 9 x 7/8″
2. Corners: 2 x 1 1/4″
3. Star Small: 1/2″
4. Star large: 3/4″
5. Oblong Accent: 1 5/8 x 3″
6. Large Accent: 2 3/4″

And now, on to our final revelation of the day. AJ Otto has made wonderful use of 5 x 7″ EL-004 Imperial M-Bossabilities by creating an oh so cute- mini album and fun layout! She shows us how versatile these reversible M-Bossabilites are to emboss different projects! Thanks for sharing AJ!

 

 

 

These are all so great!  One of the things I love about crafting is that you can give two people the same items and put them to work and their projects will turn out so very different! The great thing about these tools for paper crafting is you can use them over and over and never turn out the same look twice! There are just so many p0ssabilities!

**Reminder- If you have already placed a pre-order and would like additional pre-order items, you can add to your existing pre-order at any time during the pre-order season! This will save you shipping!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy-Day One!

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Yippee! Today is the day! I am so excited to announce Spellbinders amazing new products in this Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy! Surprisingly I slept like a log last night. I thought I would be up half the night wondering what innovative products Spellbinders was going to release for Winter 2012 Craft and Hobby Association Show (CHA) , but let me tell you- it was the first thing I checked on when I got here this morning!

I was thrilled to find out that they have created a brand new embossing folder which is (as they say) double the fun! The brand new M-Bossabilities utilize both sides of the folder with a different design! You get double creativity with one folder! They come in two sizes: 5 x 7″ and 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″. Absolutely the coolest thing! Just think of the storage space you will save!

We will Fire this up with S5-077 Lables Twenty-Five Nestabilities! This die has long classy curves  to its rectangular shape,  with sharp inverted corners to give this label pizazz.

DIE SIZES:

1. 1-1/8 x 3/4″

2. 2-1/4 x 1-3/8″

3. 3-1/2 x 2-1/8″

4. 4-5/8 x 3″

5. 6 x 3-3/4″

 

Next we introduce EL-001 Elite M-Bossabilities. To see video on M-Bossabilities click on link.

Size: 5 x 7″

 

Designer Debbie Olson created these beautiful projects using these products. I am crazy about her subtle color hues and  embellishments! Thank you Debbie, these are gorgeous!

 

Moving on to Spellbinders S4-354 Splendid Circles Decorative Elements Nestabilities. This is a must have for all card makers! There is so much you can do with this beautiful Decorative Elements die!

DIE SIZES:
1. 3/4″
2. 1 1/2″
3.  2 3/8″4.
4. 4″
Designer Latisha Yoast shows us that this set is not just for cards! She brilliantly came up with this fun mini album and gift tag! Way to get creative Latisha!
This next die is pretty self descriptive.  S4-341 Wavy Rectangles Nestabilities is exactly that!
Die Sizes:
1. 3/8 x 1/2″
2. 1 1/8 x 1 1/4″
3. 1 7/8 x 2 1/8″
4. 2 3/4″ x 3 1/8″
5. 3 5/8 x 4 1/4″
Last but not least, we bring you ES-003 Valor M-Bossabilities. This is perfect for all A2 lovers, although you don’t have to confine your creativity to that as you will see in the instructional video!
Again, you have a different pattern on each side of the folder!
Size: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″
Designer Michelle Woerner shows us how versatile thes M-bossabilities are with her cute and functional clipboard and adorable card.  I have just realized how bad I need a clipboard exactly like this one in my craft room (maybe a different color scheme). It is darling Michelle!
We would like to give all of these talented designers today a great big THANK YOU for sharing your excellent projects for this very first Blog post!
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamps With Coordinating Spellibinders Dies!

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

I love when I receive goodies in the mail, don’t you? So you understand when I tell you that I was delighted to receive card samples from some of the talented designers at Sparkle N Sprinkle without knowing they were coming! I mean, one handmade card is fun, but 7 at once is way more than I get for my birthday! Wow!

All of the Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp sets that we carry have a sticky cushioned backing. All you have to do is place them on an acrylic block (sold separately) and stamp away! Sparkle N Sprinkle have partnered with Spellbinders dies and have been producing stamp sets to coordinate with many of the Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. They will continue to release new products in this vein.

I want to share them with you since I just can’t keep them for myself! I would like to thank Sparkle N Sprinkle designers Elenor Jenkins, Julie B. Warner, Donna Maligno, Shona Erlenborn and Judy Rozema for the beautiful cards! We appreciate all the work that you put into creating them!

Designer for both festive cards- Shona Erlenborn using Nesties Xmas Trees and Nesties Ornaments with coordinating Spellbinders dies 2010 Holiday Trees.

Designers Julie B. Warner and Elenor Jenkins created these beautiful cards using Thanks a Bunch, Happy Birthday and Blossoms stamp sets. Coordinating Spellibinders Dies for the Blossoms stamp set are Blossom Three and Nested Leaves.

 

Designers Judy Rozema and Donna Maligno used Ocean Treasures and By the Seashore. Spellbinders dies used by Judy are  Classic Ovals Large and Classic Scalloped Ovals Large.

Now you can see why I was so thrilled to open the mail that day! These are wonderful! Thank you Sparkle N Sprinkle!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
