Cool Sizzix Center Step Card!

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

I received this totally cool Sizzix Center Step Card die and couldn’t wait to try it out. Technically, the name of the die is Card, Center Step so if you want to look it up by name, that is the appropriate one to use.( I will have the number for it in the product list below.)

This die is VERY COOL! Everything you need to assemble the card is on one Bigz XL die except the embellishments to dress it up. You will need extended cutting mats. It is super easy to put together and took no time at all to complete this card once I decided what I wanted to embellish it with.

Sizzix-Bigz-XL-Card-Center-Step

 

I chose the Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden Collection to use on the card base which was just out of cream card stock. I love the color pallet of the Enchanted Garden and the embellishments!  The banner was cut with Sizzix Triplits 8pk Banners die set and the sentiment from Penny Black Special Wishes stamp set, which I must not have inked good enough in one spot, but oh well. I forgot to stamp the sentiment before adhering the label, so it was a done deal.

Really, all you do is cut the pieces and adhere in place! The score lines are already done for you when you cut the card base, so all you have to do is follow the score lines to fold. So easy and so cute! It folds up very nicely to fit into an A2 Envelope.

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Introducing the Heartfelt Creations Cut Mat Create Collection which is designed for those that have stacks of photos somewhere that need to get into a book or at least onto a page so that they can see them (like me).

You don’t need to measure anything at all- simply cut out your photos whichever way you prefer and the format will fit perfectly on a 12×12 layout. You get complete total peace of mind from having total creative control: you can arrange the photos upright or sideways and cut them out large or small.

With this new concept, you get to relive the amazing moments in 5 easy steps:

Step 1: Pull out your photos

Kaisercraft Teeny Tiny Mini Album in a Designer Box

Monday, July 7th, 2014

I’m not a hoarder, really I’m not, but when I see some cute packaging, like unique envelopes that come in the mail, I just have to keep them for inspiration.  Or how about those nice thick round coasters they put under your drinks, or the nifty box that your gift came in.  All these ‘throw away’ items can make wonderful patterns for your projects.  A while back a crafty friend was going to Estate sales and ran across these old Cigarollo boxes that had metal tins inside, She sent me some thinking I’d want to alter the tins, which I do, but the box, oh how I loved the box.  It had the neatest flap that folded over the top and tucked into the inside.

Spring Block Set Using Echo Park Summer Bliss Paper!

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

This spring block set using Echo Park Summer Bliss paper is a great little gift for Mom or a friend on Mother’s Day to welcome springtime! All you need are 3 blocks, pattern paper of your choice, vinyl letters and Mod Podge!

IMG_7819

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used SB62016 Echo Park Summer Bliss 12 x 12 Collection Kit since it had both paper and sticker sheets included. The stickers were a fun embellishment for the blocks.

If you have an electronic die cutting machine like the Silhouette Cameo, or Sizzix Eclipse, you can certainly cut your own vinyl. I cheated. I bought the kit at Crafty Wood Cutouts since my time has been extremely limited lately, but oh well, who’s going to know?

First, sand your blocks so they are smooth, trace each block on the BACK SIDE of the paper you have chosen, cut out paper. Paint or stain block sides and back, cover front with even coat of Mod Podge, adhere paper while wet. Once dry, apply your lettering and stickers then cover with one or two coats of Mod Podge and let dry.

Very simple, but very cute. This would also brighten up an office desk without taking up much space.

I hope that with all the craziness of school letting out, vacation plans and yard work that you have some time to create fun little projects like this!

Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!

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!

PK469-Kaleidoscope Paper Pack contains twelve patterned 12×12″ double-sided papers (2 each of 6 designs) and one 12×12″ coordinating sticker sheet.

S6-012-Spellbinders 5×7 Mystical Embrace Card Creator die set includes three dies with a fancy design full of intricate swirly cuts and embossing around a rectangular outline in the center. Use alone with its embossed center or use with any Spellbinders 5×7″ Matting Basics sets for perfect layering.
