Clear Scraps - Christmas Stocking Mini Album

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Clear Scraps!

Today I've got another fun mini album.
This time I used the appropriate Chipboard Stocking Album,
which you can find right HERE.

This album measures 6 1/2" x 9" and comes with five pages.
I used only four of the pages, as I'm using one page for another project. 
The size of these pages offers good space for photos and tags,
as well as embellishments, or anything else you want to add.

Let's move on to all the photos I have to share!
Here's the front cover. 
After adding the base paper, I added the polka dot paper to the top. 
I added the journal card, and the tag with foam tape.
Finally, I layered some flowers, and added a big red bow.

On the left page is a band that holds some journal tags.
I also used a brad to fasten to journal cards together.
This allows them to swing open for more writing or photos.
On the right side, the card was added with a strip of Washi tape at the bottom.
It folds down for photos on the back, and behind it.

Here you see the cards in action.

On the left side, the "Be Merry" serves as a tuck spot for the larger card.
Then I added the big red bow, and some flowers.
On the right side is another card, this time with Washi tape at the top.
This page also has another band holding more journal spots.

Here's another look:

On the left page here, I used one of the border strips from the collection 
much the same way I've used the Washi tape.
I scored it down the center and adhered it to both the card and the page.
Then I just added some pretty flowers.
On the right side,
I used a border strip to create a tuck spot to hold the card.
There is also another band to hold journal tags. 

Again, with another look:

Finally, here's the back page. 
It's been covered with pretty stripes,
and one final greeting!

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Kaisercraft - Yuletide Collection;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Unknown: Washi Tape, Flowers, Trim.

Mirtillamente Creative Team Project - Happy Birthday Tag

Hello, everyone!

I'm back today with a fun share for
Mirtillamente Craft Shop!
This is a wonderful shop located in Italy!

We are celebrating the special Birthday of our wonderful boss, Evelin!
So this tag is for you, sweet Evelin! <3

Here's how I made it:

I began with three pieces of watercolour paper.
Using the Dylusions sprays, 
I sprayed one with Funky Fuschia and one with Fresh Lime.
On the third, I laid down the stencil, 
then sprayed the top with Lemon Zest, and the bottom with London Blue.
I over-lapped these colors a little in the middle, allowing them to form a nice green.

Once the sprays were all dry, 
I stamped the flowers on the pink, and the leaves on the green.
I cut a tag base from black cardstock, and trimmed the stenciled piece down to fit.
I inked the edges with black ink, and added some random texture stamping.
Then I adhered it to the black tag base.

I fussy cut the flowers and leaves, and added them with foam tape.
I added large rhinestones to the centers.

I stamped the sentiment on the green paper, matted it with black,
and adhered it in place with foam tape.
I printed "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" with my Dymo Label Maker,
and added it to the tag.

I added some fun multi-coloured fibers through a black eyelet at the top of the tag.

I had so much fun making this tag!
I love the bright and cheerful colours!

Here's one final look at the finished tag! 

Other Materials Used:
Paper: Watercolor Paper, Black Cardstock;
Stencil: Dylusions - Diamond in the Rough;
Texture Stamps: Kaisercraft, Bo Bunny, Indigo Blu;
Text: Dymo Label Maker;
Bling: Darice - Clear Rhinestones;
Unknown Fibers.

Rinea - Happiness Card in Partnership with Imagine

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new Rinea project share, using Rinea Foiled Paper!
This is another project created in partnership with Imagine.

Today I'm sharing a special card I created for an 84th Birthday celebration.
I used the gorgeous Princess Foiled Paper Variety Pack,
It was the perfect collection, as purple is the recipient's favorite color. 

Here's my card: 

I did some layered die-cutting.
The Glossy Lavender/Gold, and the Silver/Gold Glossy were perfect 
with my dark purple cardstock card base.
Then I used Gothic Purple StazOn ink, from Imagine, to stamp both the sentiment and image.
It's the BEST ink for this smooth foiled surface.

Here's a closer look it at the clear crisp stamping:

Finally, I added a pretty bow!

Other Materials Used:
Papers: American Crafts - Cardstock;
Dies: Spellbinders - Majestic Labels Twenty-Five;
Ink: Imagine - StazOn - Gothic Purple;
Stamp: Stampin' Up - Happiness Shared;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.

New Fun From The Cherry On Top

Hello, my friends!

I've been having some fun with a really great digital Scrapbooking kit

and you can find it right HERE.

This kit is just full of fabulous fun!
So many wonderful papers and elements to play with.
As with all of these digital kits,
its perfect for your digital scrapbooking.
However, these kits are great for using the print and cut features 
on your cutting machines.
Then the creative possibilities are endless! 

I'll be sharing several projects with you,
and today is my first!

This was such a fun card to make!
Seriously...does't it look like that bird just flew in the window
and landed on my card?

He's fabulous!

All of the elements were printed and cut out.

Even the pretty blue bow is just a printed piece.

I added a little piece of twine through the printed button,
and then popped it up with foam tape.

I also added the stamped sentiment.
I thought it worked well with the design.
I'm imagining that my little bird friend is real!

Here's a final look at the finished card:

Other Materials Used:
Machine: Cricut Explore Air;
Stamp: Tim Holtz Sentiment;
Ink: Imagine -Memento London Fog;
Scrap of Twine.

* * * * *
I hope you enjoyed seeing this fun card!
I'll be back again soon with another fun project using this kit!

Clear Scraps - Pine Cone Christmas Card

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Clear Scraps!

Today I'm sharing another Christmas card I made.
This time I'm featuring the 6" Pine Cone stencil.

This is another nice flat card that can easily be popped in the mail. 
My card measures 5 1/2" square.
Here's my card:

I inked the stenciled image with Distress Oxide Inks.
Then I spritzed it all with water.
I love how that brings the ink to life!

Once it was all dry, I mounted it on to the card base.
I stamped the sentiment in the corner.

To add the Stickles, I held the card up vertically.
I then added it to the top spots, and let it drip, like melting snow would.

Here's a final look at the finished card:

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Kraft, Cardstock;
Inks: Distress Oxide Inks - Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint;
Imagine - Memento Tuxedo Black;
Stamp: Red Lead Paperworks - Wishing You a Cozy Christmas;
Bling: Stickles - Icicle.

We'll start with the card.
The Swing Card Set 1 comes with 3 different Swing Card designs.
They are A2 size when folded.

...that worked well with the decorative papers.
The back side has room to write a message, 
and to sign. 

Now we'll move on to the box.
It measures 7 1/4" wide x 5 1/4" tall x 2 1/2" deep.
It comes with a removable lid.

It has an optional label to add to the front.
I chose to include it, and added some fun stamping.

The cut file also includes file cards that fit perfectly into the box.
A perfect organizational aid for a card organization box!
