Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas


Bokeh Time Gift Set

November 20th, 2014

Are you in need of a gift for a Mother, Sister, Aunt, Friend, another Crafter??? The list is endless isn’t it?  Sometimes though it’s nice to give a gift that keeps on giving that’s why I enjoy making card sets to gift to someone.  I leave the insides blank so that they can personalize them for whatever occasion arises.

Just Rite Stampers always releases the best collection of sentiment stamps which is what I’m drawing from today, Bokeh Time Stamps a set of eight sentiments and additional stamps of hearts, circles, stars etc.  This makes the perfect base to draw from when making a collection of cards.

Now a gift is better if it’s in a pretty package right?  I used my MartP1140560ha Stewart Scoreboard to make a simple six inch square box.  I lined it with tissue and it’s the home for the eight cards I made.  You can see how I layered tissue paper in the bottom and closed it with this gorgeous snippet of fabric that was gifted to me by my friend Eva.  Adding a tulle tie with one of the Heartfelt Creations flowers I created a few weeks back just finishes off the outside

 

 

I wanted to try and keep my cards flat ready to fit in a standard envelope with one-stamp postage.  I have difficulty doing this most times.  I like ribbons and bling and bumpy flowers and that in turn bumps the price up when you go to mail to parcel prices. Most of these, with the exception of perhaps one, I think will slip into the mail with no problem at all.

P1140563

I pulled out white cardstock, some Lindy’s sprays in teal and pink (yes I know I’m really stuck on these colors lately), my Bo Bunny Stickable Stencils, my texture paste and a couple of Tim Holtz distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry. I sprayed, painted, spritzed with water, textured, well———————- you get the picture I just sat down, had fun, and played. When I had enough papers altered I made enough white and blue card bases (standard A2 size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) to complete the set.

P1140569

By pre-doing all my card bits and pieces I could just sit down and start assembling, a little of this, a little of that, just having fun seeing what I could come up with using each one of the eight sentiments on cards.  You know we so often buy stamp sets because there’s a stamp in the collection that calls to us.  How often do we use that one stamp and then stick the rest of the package back, sometimes we pull them back out and sometimes we just move on to another new set.  My challenge to all of you is to get a set of stamps with assorted sentiments and use every stamp in the collection making cards.

P1140573

If we’ve already got all our stuff in front of us why not make a whole set of cards while we’re there instead of just making the one we need right now.  I’ll tell you a secret, once you see those cards begin to pile up and each one different from the other it gets pretty contagious and you want to just keep on going like the Energizer Bunny.

P1140575

I hope you’ll come join me on this weeks video, I’ve only shown you half the cards here but I’ll share them all on the video plus ideas to inspire you to pull out your stamps and make someone a lovely gift box of love.

Thanks everyone for joining me,

Thanksgiving Napkin Rings using Heartfelt Creations!

November 20th, 2014

I’m here today with a Thanksgiving inspired project. I’ve made some beautiful and simple napkin rings to help decorate your Thanksgiving day table. I’ve using the stunning Heartfelt Creations stamp & die set, Classic Sunflower. I have also used the matching 12×12 paper pad.

Napkins pics 003
This was a very simple project, that you can quickly make, that will really liven up your table.
I first started making the flowers. I used the Classic Sunflower stamp inked it with Chestnut Roan and stamped that onto white smooth cardstock. I then used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Vintage photo, Wild Honey, and Spiced Marmalade.

Napkins pics 014

Using an acrylic block, I stamped my inks on it, and used a small paint brush with a little water to color each flower. I started with Wild Honey, then added Spiced Marmalade, finishing with Vintage photo in the center of the flower. I then used my heat gun to dry it. Using a blending tool, I added Vintage photo to the entire flower. I then used my Sizzix Big Shot machine, along with the Classic Sunflower die to easily cut all my flowers at once. After cutting them, I edged each flower again in the Vintage photo to define each edge. Using a stylus tool, and a foam mat, I broke the fibers of each flower, by making a circling motion in the center of each flower. That gives the flower lots of dimension. Then using a paint brush (or anything small you have on hand) I wrapped each petal around the paint brush to give the petals a rounded look. I adhered two of the medium flowers together, and two of the smaller flowers on top of that, making sure to alternate each flower as I glued it down. I added a beautiful center piece that I had in my stash. Cut At Home sells Prills by US Artquest which would look great in the center of this flower!
I had some burlap that I cut approximately 2×4. I wrapped them around my napkin. We use disposable napkins in our house, but this would look beautiful around a cloth napkin as well! I used hot glue to adhere the burlap, inserting a piece of non-stick paper in between the napkin and burlap, to insure it would not stick to the napkin.

I then cut a piece of patterned paper from the Classic Sunflower collection to 1 1/4 x 12. After wrapping the paper around, I just eye-ball it and cut it to where I needed it. Using a fall colored leaf, I added that to the paper, along with a tiny pine-cone, and a spray of fall colors, which was the perfect embellishment to go along with it.
I made sure to not glue anything to the napkin itself, this way the ring can simply be pulled off, and even re-used next year.

This was a fun project to do, that I think my family will enjoy. The Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection is a perfect collection to use for anything fall. Having the stamps, die & paper really does all the work for you.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my project this week. I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and are able to spend time with your family.

November 19th, 2014

Karen N here from Craftily Yours!  Happy Friday everyone!  I am SO excited today to be sharing with you a special project using the NEW Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection.  These papers, die cuts, chipboard are SO vibrant and fun.  The papers are themed by month and are perfect for creating fun calendars and for other year-round scrapping or cardmaking projects.  Seriously.  You HAVE to check this stuff out!

Inside the box are 6 “coaster-sized” cardstock pages.  With the month/calendar theme of the Time to Flourish, I decided to decorate each side with a different month of the year.  Then, I can write down important dates to remember and keep it all together with inspirational quotes and other fun keepsakes.

Before I go on, be sure to check out the video that shows all of the pages up close along with a sneaky-peeky of all of the FUN that is offered by Cut@Home with the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection!

Christmas Treat Boxes with Sizzix Cake Pop Box Die

November 17th, 2014

Hi, happy Monday! I received a very cool Sizzix BigZ L die, it is a Cake Pop Box Die. I thought it would be fun to make Christmas Treat Boxes with this die. The first thing I did was pick out some different Christmas papers to use. I cut them in 6″ x 9″ pieces to fit the die. Next, I got out my Sizzix Big Shot, and cut out my boxes, these dies cut so easily!

all three final

I also cut a piece of clear acrylic out for each box, the piece was approximately 1 7/8″ square, this piece should fit in the square panel for the side of the box that has the circle cut out of it. You may have to trim it so that it fits nicely and doesn’t interfere with the box folding. You can also use some of you recycled packaging for this :).

Once I had the acrylic in place, I folded the boxes and used a tape runner to hold them, make sure that you use a good sticking tape so that it holds together once you put the candy in it. You can always use double sided tape as well, most of those are really sticky. I used adhesive dots to keep the boxes closed once I added the candy to them.

I used a few Spellbinders dies in my project to decorate the boxes. I used Lacey Circles, Large Standard Circles and Snowflake bliss. You can find the item numbers for these dies below in my list of supplies. I used the lacy circles and snowflake bliss to cut out the shape, then I used the standard circles to cut out the center of the shape so that you will still have the window there. I show this in the above video.

I made a total of three boxes, they are so much fun to make!

Here is the first box I made:

box 1

I used the scalloped circles and the standard circles to decorate this box as well as a couple of felt holly leaves and some metallic pearls.

Here is the second box:

box 2

For this box I used the Snowflake bliss die set and the standard circles, I dressed it up with some pearls as well.

Finally here is the third box:

box3

For this one I used the scalloped circles and standard circles again, dressed it up with some pearls and a little chipboard accent.

I used ribbon where the hole is for the pop stick, so that you could hang them on a tree.

I hope you enjoyed my project this week, below is a list of the supplies available at CutatHome that I used for my project:

products

SKU:659940 – Sizzix Bigz L Box Cake Pop die
SKU:S4-293 – Spellbinders Lacey Circles dies
SKU:S4-114 – Spellbinders Standard Circles Large
SKU:S4-433 – Spellbinders Snowflake Bliss Dies

I also used my Sizzix Big Shot which is available at the CutatHome site.

I used gems, ribbon, pattern paper, acrylic, glue dots and tape from my stock.

I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin!
