Cards Made Easy!

Hello, today I've been playing with some new pieces from We R Memory Keepers, Albums Made Easy sets.  In particular I've been playing with the die-cuts and journaling cards from the Studio Gold set by Teresa Collins and the Sheer Metalic Vellum set.  I love these sets, not only are they great for creating fast and cute mini albums but they can be used for cards and other projects.  So check out these cute cards I made with these awesome sets.  

Each set comes with cards large cards that are 4" x 4" and 2" x 2".

For this first card I trimmed a piece of cardstock that was 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", score on the length at 4 1/4" and fold in half to create a card base that is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  Then I used the We R Memory Keepers corner chomper to round the corners using the 1/4" size.

On the inside of the card I used a mini distress ink pad to distress the edges of the card.

Now the card Shine's like a star.

For the mini card I used this cute 2" x 2" card with a heart shape cut out of the center.  I added some stickles to accent the heart and the outer edge.

Same process for this mini card base just start with a cardstock trimmed to 2 1/4" x 4 1/2", score and fold in half.  

I used pop up adhesive to layer the open heart over a decorative vellum square from the sheer metalic set.  

These also make a great simple tag.  I trimmed a square of cardstock to 2 1/4" x 2 1/4", distressed the edges and attached a die-cut card that says thank you, perfect for attaching to a small thank you gift.

Dream Medallion Wall Hanging

Did you hear the news? Craft Warehouse had announced their 2014 Design Team. I'm excited to be returning as a member of their core team, they are a great company to design for. You can check out the entire team here

Today I want to share my latest project, a wall hanging made of accordion fold medallions using fun patterned paper and some awesome chipboard letters.

I love these chipboard letters because of their size and how versatile they are.  They are great for a decor piece like this or for banners.  

For details on how I finished the letters and how I made all those medallions with some fun paper from Echo Park, check out my post on the Craft Warehouse blog with a step by step tutorial, here.

Floral Doily Card

It's August, welcome to my favorite month! Though in Oregon we tend to get a little rain mid month in August, I still love this part of summer. Today I wanted to share with you this quick and simple card I made with an acrylic card base, a pretty die cut and a flower.

The acrylic base was already scalloped and it turns out that this floral doily punch works perfectly with it.  Simple, yet elegant.  A great card for any occasion or no occasion at all.

For more details on how to create this card, check out my post here, on the ScraPerfect blog.
