Today I am using the gorgeous Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper from the
Here is my card:

Rinea Foiled Paper

I'm a Canadian girl, and tomorrow we celebrate Canada Day here. 
This beautiful glossy red paper helped me create the perfect celebration card!
Our National Anthem is O Canada but I made a card that says Oh Canada! 
I'm very thankful to live in this beautiful country!

Rinea Foiled Paper

Some simple punching and die-cutting helped me create this fun design.
My card is a little reminiscent of our flag, as far as the colors and the Maple Leaf.

My Scrap Chick - Seed Packet Envelope Mini

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Today I am sharing this wonderful Seed Packet Envelope File.
You can find it right HERE.

This is a super fun file that I will use over and over again!
I use these envelopes: on cards, in minis, as minis, etc.
The can hold photos or journal spots or ephemera.
Today I have used it as the base of my mini album.

I cut five envelopes out of manila cardstock, and adhered them together. 
In my stash, I found this old file entitled "free seed packet printable."
They fit the envelope front perfectly!



To the back I added a flower with a button center.
It's pretty but also serves to hold the envelope flap closed.


Three of the envelopes have pink flowers and pink buttons.
Then I cut a pink cardstock piece to put in the envelope.


Two of the envelopes have white flowers with yellow buttons.
They have a piece of yellow cardstock in them.


Here is the front of all five envelopes:


Here is the back of all five, 
along with ribbon covered binding ring:


I punched a hole in one corner of each envelope
and threaded them all on the binding ring.
Here's the finished mini all fanned out:


I hope you like my little envelope mini!
This really is a great file for so many reasons!
Perfect for anywhere you need an envelope or pocket!

Clear Scraps - BLOOM Art Journal Page

Hello, my friends!

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

This week I've created a fun Art Journal page,
using a variety of wonderful stencils from Clear Scraps.
You'll find a printable version of this tutorial over at the Clear Scraps Blog!

I know that the saying is "Bloom where you are planted",
and that is what the full stencil includes.
I decided to create a page that states "Bloom where you are..."
Sometimes we go through periods of time where we don't feel very planted.
We might be pulling up our roots, or considering a complete change of garden! lol
Even in that situation we need to remember to BLOOM! :o)

Here's the page I created:



I began by spraying my page with the yellow spray. 

I added a misting of water, and then dried it.



Then using the Plaid Stencil and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink,

I stenciled the plaid design around the outside of the pages. 


Allow this to dry completely before going on to the next step.


Next, I added some fun flowers with the 6” Daisy Stencil. 

I did this by combining some DecoArt Modeling Paste with Lindy’s 
Magicals;

first in purple, and then in red.

I stenciled the pasts using a plastic palette knife.

I allowed them to dry completely between colors.


Then I used the black ink and the 3 X 12 Bloom where you are planted Stencil.

I stenciled only the “Bloom where you are.”

Finally, I added some black and white spatters to the page. 


I hope you like it, and are inspired to create a similar page for yourself! 


Materials Used:

Clear Scraps Stencils:



Other Materials:
Dyan Reavely – Small Art Journal,
Recollections Shimmer Mist – Boho,
DecoArt Media – Modeling Paste,
Lindy’s Magicals – Cajun Carnelian Red, Jazzy Jivin’ Purple,
Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn,

Simply Crafty SVGs - Part 1 of New Series

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new project share for Simply Crafty SVGs!

If you read my title, you already know that this is Part 1.
I'm beginning a fun series of shares for Simply Crafty SVGs. 
For the next several months I will be sharing a combination post.
Each post will have a card/cards, along with a card holder,
both available in the shop.
I think sets like these make fabulous gifts,
so this may help you get ready for the gift giving season well in advance.
They are also really great to keep and use for organizational purposes.
I hope to share a variety of styles, so as to appeal to all of your tastes! :o)

* * * * *
Part 1 Files:

Cards: Daisy Card Set

Holder: Magazine Style A2 Card Box

We'll start with the Daisy Card Set.
This file contains two daisy cards that are so pretty and unique!
Here's the first:


The petals pop up and add lovely dimension to the card.


I added copper beads to the flower centers for some added interest.


Here's the second card:


Isn't it pretty?
I love the way the card front is cut in the shape of the flower.
I just added a simple stamped sentiment.


Here's a closer look at the flower:


Now we move on to the card box.
It's a shrunken version of a magazine holder.
It even comes with a divider and tab.


The file also includes a label for the front.
This way you could have a box for each theme:
birthday, sympathy, Christmas, Easter, etc.


You could even add a calendar on the front of the divider.
Then list all the dates that you need cards for.


Here is the box with the Daisy Cards in it:


Isn't that a lovely way to store cards,
or a beautiful way to gift a set of cards?

So head on over to the shop and pick up these files:

Cards: Daisy Card Set

Holder: Magazine Style A2 Card Box

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you found some inspiration!
I'll be back next month to share Part 2! :o)

Swedish House Crafts - Fun Decorating Scene Card

Hello, my friends!

I have a new project share for Swedish House Crafts!
  
If you've been over to the Swedish House Crafts blog 
since the release of the Magnolia Fixer Upper Collection, 
or if you're a Tilda fan, 
then I'm sure you've already seen this sweet Tilda hanging her wallpaper. 
Well, now she's adding the finishing touches, and hanging her pictures! 
I can't remember the last time I spent so much time on a single card...or had so much fun! 
I began with stamping and colouring the Wallpaper Tilda Image. 
Then I set about creating the scene.


 I used a mold and some clay that I have to create this lovely frame. 
Then I stamped and coloured the sweet Mini Magnolia Stamp called to fill it. 
It's called "Jam, Sitting Tilda" and doesn't she look lovely framed? 
Next, I needed to add some furniture to my scene, 
and a little step-stool to help Tilda reach!


 Using a scrap of woodgrain paper from my stash, I snipped and cut, 
until I had assembled this side table. 
I added a brad for the drawer pull. 
Now I needed to add something to the tabletop. 
I found the Gummiapan Tie Stamp in my DT stash
 and decided that it would make a lovely vase. 
I stamped it, fussy cut it, curled it, and glued it in place. 
Then I added the flowers.


 Here's a closer look at both of the images. 
The striped paper makes a great background.


 Here you can see the curl in the vase, the detail in the frame,
 and more of the dimension of the card.


Here's a final look at my little scene card!
 I hope you like it...and are inspired to create one of your own! :o)

Clear Scraps - Summer Fun Acrylic Mini Album

Hello, my friends!

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

I've had a great time decorating this sweet mini album. 
This is the 6 X 6 Tab Album.
You can find it HERE.

This album comes with a front cover, 3 tabbed pages, and a back cover.
The clear acrylic is covered with a protective film.
You simply peel it off whenever you're ready to get to work! 
An acrylic album requires a little more creative thinking,
and it's so much fun!



I created a Summer themed album.
Instead of my usual charms and ribbon on the rings,
I simply tied a bow of fringed fiber!


I tool distressed all the papers, and adhered them in place.
Then the pages and tabs were decorated with matching stickers.


I left lots of room to add plenty of photos.


Here I inserted one of the journal cards in between the pages.


On these pages, the papers were adhered under the acrylic.
The adhesive was placed in position where it would be covered with the stickers.
Then I added the stickers on top of the acrylic. 
Layering it that way gives it an added dimension,
and it's just fun!


Here I used one of the matching papers to create a 4 X 4 envelope.


 I added it between two coordinating pages.


 It holds several more journaling cards.


 Here is the back page, where I added a date sticker.


 Here's one last look at the front cover, and the tabs. 


Other Materials Used:
Echo Park - Walking On Sunshine Collection;
Binder Rings, Unknown Fiber.

Whisker Graphics - Winter Card Pocket

Hello, my friends!

I'm back to share a fun project created with products from the Whisker Graphics Shop!
I'm also over on the Whisker Graphics Blog today.
You're going to want to go over there and subscribe in the sidebar, if you haven't already done so. 
That way you won't miss all the fun shares from the rest of the DT,
and all the fun ways you can use these great products! 

This was actually a project I created in Winter,
but thought the heat of Summer was the best time to share it! lol

* * * * *
I just love glassine bags! 
The Middy Biddy Glassine Bags from Whisker Graphics are so much fun to play with! 
They measure 4.75" x 6.75",
 which I thought made the perfect size for this Winter card pocket. 
Here's what I made:



Now I'll show you how I did it.
I began by gathering my supplies.

From Whisker Graphics I grabbed a Middy Biddy Glassine Bag, and the Red Bamboo Divine Twine.
Then I used my Digital Carta Bella Bundled Up Collection. 
I chose the paper and elements I wanted, and printed then cut them out using my Cricut Explore Air.
I also grabbed my Martha Stewart - Aspen Snowflake Punch.



I cut the paper 4.75" x 6.75", then used the punch along the top edge.


The next photo shows how I arranged all the elements.
I adhered them in place.
Then I wrapped the twine around the bottom of the card pocket several times,
and tied a bow. 


This is the back of the pocket.
You can see that I added some snowflakes to the back of the paper.


Here is what the card looks like out of the pocket.
The two banners are stapled to the paper,
and they slip over the outside of the glassine bag.


Here's one final look at the finish card pocket.


This was so much fun...I'll be making lots more of these!
Just a simple change of paper and elements,
 and it would be a brand new project.

I'll be back again soon with another project share!
