Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Mini Album

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Sigh………… I’m in love………..with Graphic 45′s Botanical Tea Collection!  Oh wait, maybe I’ve said that before, oh well, I’m saying it again, this collection is just gorgeous and so nostalgic, at least for me anyway.  I’ve created a mini album this week and fussed and fumed over the binding until I think I finally got it right (3rd times charm isn’t that what the old saying is?).

Botanical Tea Mini-004

To make this album it’s super simple, no really, it is!  I started with white cardstock, around 100# and cut 8 pages 5″ x 6″. The reason it’s not square is because I had made a coordinating gift box to put it in (check out my blog – link below- to see the box) and I wanted to leave room on the 5″ side to add a Cinch binding.  Once I cut my decorative papers I realized the white was too stark so I inked the edges, about an inch in with Tim Holtz‘s Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Then I cut my decorative paper from the collection about 1/4″ small (4 3/4″ x 5 3/4″).  I cut 16 mats, two of each design  so when you open the book the right and left sides compliment one another.

Botanical Tea Mini-005

Leftover pieces can be used to compliment the main page patterns in the form of pockets, belly bands and focal accents.

Botanical Tea Mini-007

By trimming and following the pattern edge you can create a fun border.

Botanical Tea Mini-028

As I said in the beginning I redid the binding several times, first using white coils and my Cinch, next blue coils and fibers hanging and finally I gave up on the wires, it just wasn’t the right look.  Instead, I took blue 1/4″ ribbon and laced it from bottom to top, tied it in a knot, added the metal butterfly and ran the ends through it to the back adding a knot on each loose end.  I added a few charms, I especially love the little teacup that a friend had given me just this week, perfect timing! The point is, don’t give up, if something doesn’t look or feel right keep tweeking it otherwise you’re never going to be happy with the end result.  It may be just the color that’s off and by changing it up you’ll be so much happier, I know I am!

Catch the rest of the pages in the video below and the gift box I made to house this in is in my blog post here -> Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Gift Box. One last thing I used Spellbinders Die D-Lites Corner Flourish around the Botanical Tea tag on the front.  The paper had flourishes around it but that’s way beyond my fussy cutting abilities so I added my own with some blue paper, love the look. I also misted the solid outside papers with Lindy’s Frosted Forget-Me-Nots Starburst and Alpine Tea Rose Starburst sprays then inked them with a combination of browns from Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks, the last step was to lightly mist overtop with Lindy’s Blazing Sun Glitz Spray.  I love how it turned out, I hope you do to.

So why not try this mini today, yes you can do it and you’ll love the end result!

Thanks and 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.

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.

Card Box using Spellbinders Gold Labels One

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Today I am sharing a card/box. The first time I made one of these was a few years ago, and everyone loved it! Today I made a Card Box using Spellbinders Gold Labels One, a brand new die set that coordinates with Spellbinders Nestabilities Label One.
image
Here is a list of products that I used that can be found at Cut at Home.
Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Collection 12 x 12 Paper Pack, SKU: HCDP1 233
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, SKU: S4-161
Spellbinders Gold Labels One, SKU: S4-423
Heartfelt Creations Adorned in Roses Precut Set Rubber Stamps, SKU: HCPC 3583
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Iced Spruce, SKU: TIM32878
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Rusty Hinge, SKU: TIM27157
I also used a few other items from my stash, 2 sheets of Bazzill Bling card stock, 1 sheet of American Craft Mediterranean card stock, Misc. Flowers, gems and Washi tape.

To begin I made the base, lid and cylinder/cake for the card. See the video below for detailed instructions.

I mentioned the dimensions in the video but here they are again. I stat with an 11 1/4 inch piece of card stock and score the first side and three remaining slides at 3 3/4 inches.

After I constructed the box I started to cut and emboss my labels. The new Gold labels do not cut, they enhance the base labels one dies so you will need both sets. These new dies add so much to the labels and they are easy to use, you layer them right with the die to cut and emboss. Here are some of the die combinations and the finished results.
image
For my box, first I decorated the cake, I took a piece of the patterned paper, cut it 1 1/2 by 9 1/2, I adhered it to the base of the cake, then I added some washi tape and ribbon, for the top of the cake I cut three layers of labels using both the label dies and the gold label dies.
Next I cut the labels for the side panels. I inked the edges of most of the labels, then I added the flowers and gems. I also inked the edges of the flowers.
For the panel with the stamped sentiment I ran washi tape along the top and bottom of the panel, stamped the sentiment and then cut it out using one of the plain label dies.

For the outside of the box I ran the washi tape along the bottom of the box and around the lid. I cut three labels with both the label dies and the gold label dies, inked the edges and layered them for the top of the box. I finished off the top with a flower.

Here is a picture of the finished outside of the box.

And here is a picture of the finished inside.

I hope you enjoyed my project, I enjoyed sharing it with all of you. If you need any further instructions I would be happy to help, just leave me a message on my blog. Till next week Thanks and Happy Scrappin.

Heartfelt Creations Water Color Card

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Here is another way to use Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning stamp set. This project is simple yet detailed by the wonderful stamp Heartfelt Creations has put together for us.

 hrt-clg-3581

First I started with my background paper, selecting a gold polka-dot from Bo Bunny‘s Key Lime collection and cutting it to cover the the front of my card. Next using archive ink that is waterproof I stamped the Majestic Morning Accent on the water color paper. Once this is dry you want to moisten the watercolor sheet using a brush. Once the are to be colored is wet,  select 3-4 color sprays of choice. Place a drop of each color in random order. Now for the fun part, using your brush you want swirl all the colors.

*Tip: You can “soften” a color by adding more water to your brush.

While the top dries, proceed to your sentiment. Again, you want to stamp your sentiment with archival ink, then moisten the area of coloring. Follow the same steps from above.

Now all is left is to place the water colored sheet on your card and add a few embellishments of your choice.

DSC_0066

Pretty and simple, right?! If you don’t have color sprays you can use water coloring pencils, you would just color lightly then brush.

 

Products Used from Cut@Home store:

Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning Accents Stamp ~ SKU: HCPC 3581 ~

Bo Bunny Key Lime Collection

Ranger Archival Ink

Water coloring Paper

3 Color Spray of your choice

Waterfall card using Raindrops on Roses rubber stamps.

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

This week I made a Waterfall card using Raindrops on Roses rubber stamps. I first learned how to make these cards through Splitcoast Stampers but I altered the pattern to my liking. I am going to show you how I make a Waterfall card. I have to admit the first time I tried to make one I was a little intimidated, but it’s really not hard at all. I hope that my video will make it easy for you if this is your first time making one.

Here is a list of supplies that I used:
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Dusty Concord – SKU:TIM21445
Heartfelt Creations Adorned in Roses stamps – SKU: HCPC 3583
Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Rosettes – SKU: HCP 3585
Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses 12 x 12 paper collection – SKU: HCDEP1240

All the products listed above are available at Cut at Home. I also used Tim Holtz Distress markers in Victorian Velvet, Dusty Concord Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, Ranger Archival Ink – Black, Ranger Glossy Accents, Bazzill Swiss Dot card stock, washi tape and some gems.
image
The first thing that I did was cut my paper, here are the sizes and quantities of the paper that you will need to cut to make the card.
image
Once you have all the paper cut watch the video below to walk you through making the card.

I have to admit that practice does make perfect when making these cards the more you make the better you get at making them, and everyone that I have ever given one to absolutely loves them.

I hope that you enjoyed my project this week, as always, till next time,
