Have you seen the Sizzix Stand Up Card dies that were recently released? I LOVE them! Similar to Flip-Its and Pop Up dies, these Movers & Shapers dies will allow more motion and dimension to your cardmaking. They are so fun! I just HAD to use this one to make my sweet hubby a card for his Birthday this month. I can’t wait to see what he thinks of it!
For my project I used 658845- Movers & Shapers XL Card Square Stand-Ups showcasing the vibrant style of Ellison design artist Stephanie Barnard. You receive one die to make a stand-up

Today I want to share a really fun project – quick and easy Halloween treat holders. They are sure to be a hit with your favorite trick-or treaters.
I began by selecting some of my favorite circle and oval dies, as well as a some solid and patterned papers. The dies I selected were Spellbinders petite scalloped circles, scalloped circles, picot-edged circles and pumpkin circles. I also selected a set of My Favorite Things oval dies to make the taller pumpkins.
My first two pumpkins were made using Dried Marigold from the Tim Holtz Distress Core’dinations paper stack. I cut two shapes each from

No, I am not crazy, and yes, you can use 12 x 12″ paper for fall porch decor! With a little help from Mod Podge, you can seal your paper project to withstand the elements to enable you to decorate your outdoor area as cute as your inside areas.
For this project, I purchased my ladder and monthly wood kit from Crafty Wood Cutouts HERE which is a local woodcraft store. I actually consider this cheating, because I have been a wood cutter for many years, but I just don’t have the time to get out to my shop very often

Today I want to show you some frighteningly simple Halloween cards featuring the Authentique “Thrilling” Collection. I love the variety of papers and stickers available in Authentique’s Thrilling Collection – enough to satisfy all of my Halloween card needs and then some. I especially love the paper called “Mystic”, and that is what I used to make some super simple Halloween cards.
To create these cards, I first cut apart the various elements on the “Mystic” page. In some cases I cut the outside borders off, and instead used a coordinating solid paper as a border or

No, I didn’t misspell the title of my blog. I made my JustRite Freindship Card with JustRite Stampers new Vintage Labels Four die and Enjoy the Day Vintage Labels Four stamp set, but I actually do think it turned out just right (Wink, wink). The best part about making this card is sending it to the special friend that I made this for!
I almost gave it the title Imperial Gold Friendship Card because I used Spellbinders Imperial Gold die- Gold Corners One and the colors I chose are all gold. Trust me, I was not planning anything like either of

I love this new Sizzix 658451 Bigz ScoreBoards XL Birdhouse 3-D die that creates a birdhouse not for the birds, but for us! It is darling and so much fun to make! You can use this for decoration, or for treats! I am thinking about putting acetate over the opening, then leave one side of the roof accessible so it can lift up for yummy little treats! A small magnet would enable me to keep it closed, but easily lift up when needed. To view this and other ScoreBoard dies, click HERE.
The assembled measurement of this die-cut shape is approximately

Who doesn’t want a Authentique Thank You card? Not only do I love using Authentique paper but I love using Spellbinders dies as well. I could’nt resist using Spellbinders Les Papillions Die for this Thank you card and Heartfelt Creations has a beautiful stamp collection so of course I couldn’t resist that either. I always use card stock for the base for my cards. I then used Authentiques 6×6 paper called Renew on the top. This paper is double sided so it all blends together really well. I used Hero Hues Chalk Ink to ink around all my corners of

I am planning a birthday party for my son for this weekend and I had an idea for a party favor with QuicKutz. I love this little Star Box die, it is so easy to use and it cuts out so perfectly using the Sizzix Big Shot machine. I used Authentique paper and after I cut out the die I used some scor tape around the folds to tape the folds together then I added some silver bling from Want2Scrap and I added a bow (with some bling on the bow) to the top of my box. This was so

Today is officially the first day of Spring and everyone is looking forward to Easter next weekend, so I thought I would show you a couple Easter treat boxes that I made using my Sizzix Big Shot Pro and Bigz Pro Dies. These are so incredibly easy, they literally only take a few minutes to make!
This first box is one I showed you at Christmas time, but change your paper and voila…you have an Easter box! One sheet of pattern paper (I like double sided for a prettier project), add labels, fill with treats, tie the ends with some ribbon

Everyone likes getting something in the mail box, so I made this “A Note For You” A2 card for someone I know who could use a special note. I totally love the blue and brown color combo in the Authentique Hope 6×6 paper pad, not to mention the elegant patterns!
Hope includes twenty-six doublesided sheets of reduced designs with two solids. The Hope collection is in an elegant color palette suited to the splendor of the Easter holiday printed on a special textured finish akin to the weave of an Easter basket. The feelings of renewal with a nostalgic design pattern

Valentine’s Day is nearly here, so I wanted to be a “good mom” and bake my kids some yummy treats and dress them up with just a little note card to wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day! Now I just have to think of something to surprise my hubby with. He had already eaten his share of the cookies before I got them frosted!
Okay, so quit drooling over the cookies and draw your attention to the little note card and envelope. I literally whipped up 3 of these before work this morning, since it took me longer than I had

I was scrapping family photos and when I came across my favorite picture of my husband and I, I thought “Nothing Not Authentique About It”. What a better choice then to use Authentiques Lovely collection kit with a picture of you with your loved one. I scrapbook with 8 1/2 x 11 format so I cut the 12×12 paper down to size and with the double sided paper I use the scrap paper with my design. With my page layout I also used Spellbinders Stately Circles, A2 Distressed Edges, and A2 Curved Matting Basic A die cuts with my Big

Valentines Day is right around the corner and what a better way to celebrate than to make A Spellbinders Valentine Card. I have always had a hard time finding that perfect card to express my love and appreciation to those I love and so I thought,” why not make my own?” I have designed my card using the products that you can find on our Cut At Home website. I started with a warm brown color cardstock and cut it down to a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 size sheet. I used Authentique 6×6 collection “Lovely” paper to add some color and character. I
