Today I want to share with you some Christmas card inspiration for any of those last minute card makers out there. I was featured as a guest designer for Craft Warehouse recently and these cards were featured on the Craft Warehouse blog.
All the cards feature product from Lawn Fawn. This Merry and Bright card is the simplest and all the details can be found here.
The sheet of tags are perfect for gift card holders. Step by step instructions for this card can be found here.
This is one of my favorite cards. Made using a coordinating stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn, I love that you can have a the look of fussy cutting without actually having to fussy cut the image. You can get all the details for this fun sequenced card here.
And last but not least, the Merry Christmas mantel card. There are so many great stamps and dies in one set the creative possibilities are endless. Check out the steps to create the brick pattern and the mantel here.
Today I want to share a project that I created for the ScraPerfect design team. A fun DIY snow globe that anyone can make with a mason jar, glitter, The Best Glue Ever and Foil Transfer paper.
Check out all of the details on creating your own unique foil transfers here on the ScraPerfect blog. To create the snow globe simply attach whatever you'd like on the inside to the inside of the lid. Then fill with water and a bit of glitter. Attach the lid and flip and you have a quick easy craft.
I'm loving the ScraPerfect products I've been playing with. Today I want to share a project that I created using several of the ScraPerfect products. I upcycled a wine bottle to create a decorative décor piece. Check out all the details on the ScraPerfect blog here.
December already! I cannot believe this year is almost over. With a new month also comes a new challenge over on the Black With 2 blog. Take inspiration from this lovely palette to create a layout or card with a dominant black background.
Here's is my take on the December palette
and here' s a peek at the journaling tag.
I'm not one to journal much, though I realize the importance of it so I often hide them. I love how these colors pop off the black background. Go check out the Black With 2 blog for more inspiration from the design team.
I love adding dimension to my projects, I'm use pop up adhesive on a regular basis. Sometimes the perfect embellishment is a sticker and I need at a portion of the sticker not to be sticky. There have been times that I will fussy cut a piece of cardstock to match the back of the sticker which takes time and attention to detail. Now I have an easier, faster way to unstick a sticker using the Perfect Crafting Pouch.
Good morning all! I'm excited to share with you today that I am the featured guest designer on CutCardStock.com. Check out the CutCardStock blog to see a collection of gift card holders for the up coming holidays.
Hi everyone, sorry I've been missing in action, been busy working on DT projects and items to sell at an upcoming bazaar. Today I'd like to share with you a card I made awhile back. Since Thanksgiving is quickly approaching a Thankful card seems appropriate.
To make the zigzag fold card I scored it in thirds first then trimmed the diagonals. I punched the border using a Martha Stewart border punch and attached to the back side. Other than the cardstock all product used is Bella Blvd.
I've had some exciting news to share for a while and now and I can finally share. I'm excited to share that ScraPerfect has announced their new Design Team and I was fortunate to be selected as one of their new DT members.
Check out the ScraPerfect blog for a list of all the talent selected for the DT and check out the ScraPerfect website for all the awesome products they offer.
I recently came across this cute unfinished wood wall hanging that says Happy Halloween. For five bucks I couldn't pass it up as I knew it would be perfect for some of my Halloween Zappy Dots. I also found some fun Halloween paper from Doodlebug Designs that work perfectly with the Zappy Dots.
I painted the edges and base with black acrylic paint before covering with this fun chevron paper.
I love this time of year, I love changing out the summer décor for the fall décor. And right now in addition to fall décor I put out spooky Halloween decorations. My daughter's and I did just that today. So fun to see them get so excited about the handmade cheesecloth ghosts and the unfinished wood pieces they painted in years past. I came across this Witch boot that I made last year and wanted to share it with you for a little Halloween inspiration.
This started with an unfinished wood base that I covered with purple cardstock. Then I cut strips of patterned paper and adhered them randomly, being careful to leave some of the purple cardstock showing.
Tip: Trim strips to desired width, but longer than needed, once adhered trim the excess paper with a craft knife or scissors.
Don't forget to hop along the Polka Dot Pumpkin Blog Hop, today is day 4 of the hop. Today I want to share with you another project using the fall leaves flair buttons from Zappy Dots.
These colors work really well with burlap as shown here on the burlap envelopes I created with the same set of Zappy Dots and the same flower sprig. You could make a little gift tag and this swag would make a lovely gift with a tag received in the making burlap envelope.
Here are a few close ups of the Zappy Dots, fall leaves flair buttons.
The burlap is about 4" wide and just twisted, then I hot glued everything to it and tied off the ends.
Good Morning, today I wanted to share with you a simple project I made using a few supplies. You'll need fall leave Zappy Dots, some premade burlap envelopes, and a fall flower sprig, a pair a pliers and a hot glue gun.
I found these little premade burlap envelopes and new they would be perfect for a fall project. They are the perfect size for a gift card and really could be used in a variety of ways.
For these I purchased a sprig of flowers in fall colors that worked with the fall leave Zappy Dots. Using my pliers or wire cutters I cut down the sprig into pieces that fit nicely on the burlap. Then I layered a Zappy Dot on top and attached everything with hot glue.
Tip: I placed a piece of wax paper under the flap of the envelope so it would not seal when I attached my Zappy Dot and flowers.
