Darice Embossing Folders and Letterpress Technique

June 2nd, 2014 | by Polly Zastawnik

Today I wanted to try a technique using Darice embossing folders and letterpress technique. I saw this technique from Spellbinders and wanted to give it a try. You use your embossing folders and ink pads to create a kind of letterpress look with your embossing folders. Before I get started here is a list of the products that I used which are available at the Cut at Home website. Darice Scrolls Embossing Folder – SKU: 1215-49 Darice Dot Embossing Folder – SKU:1217-67 Sizzix Framelits Die Set, Banners Pennant Scallop – SKU: 657571 Silhouette America, Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T Sizzix Big Shot – SKU:

Heartfelt Creations Once Upon A Time Collage

May 27th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Today I want to show you a mixed media collage featuring Heartfelt Creation’s Once Upon A Time Collection.  It would make a great Fathers’ Day Gift.  The Once Upon A Time Collection features timepieces and is a very versatile collection.  There is quite a variety to choose from, and the collection is perfect for a mixed media project (featured today), card making or scrapbook layouts.   Sometimes its difficult to begin a mixed media collage project.  I usually begin with a theme (here time/timepieces), and decide whether the project is for a guy or a girl (or both).  I look through the “treasures” I’ve collected

Using Darice Embossing Folders With Die Cuts

May 5th, 2014 | by Polly Zastawnik

I was so excited to get some of my Easter pictures developed, considering this is the first Easter with our Granddaughter! The pictures turned out so cute! I did a two page scrapbook layout using a Darice Embossing Folder and die cuts from my Silhouette. First of all here is a list of the products that are available at Cut at Home that were used for my layout.

Darice Easter Bunny Embossing Folder

April 1st, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Today I want to share a card using the Darice Easter Bunny embossing folder.  I also want to give you some tips on using things that you already have in your stash in different ways so you can “stretch” both your supplies and your craft budget. A successful card always has a good focal point — here I’ve used the bunny face from the Easter Bunny embossing folder.   (The entire embossing folder is darling too, but it doesn’t leave much room for embellishment.  Click here to see the full embossing folder design.)  To isolate the part of the design that I wanted to

Die-Versions Easter Bunny Cards

March 11th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Today I’m using another really fun Die-Versions die – this time to make Easter Bunny Cards.  The bunnies are also perfect for other Spring or Easter decorations.  This is a single die that makes either a standing or sitting bunny along with accessories.  I love how they put a little scalloped edge around the bunny to make it look more fuzzy and cuddly.   The Die-Versions dies are thin metal dies, so you can use them with almost any die cutting machine.  I chose my Sizzix Big Kick because it is well-suited to this type of cutting.  Although it could cut

Red Dress Card

February 5th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Friday is “red dress” day, and I wanted to make a Red Dress Card as a reminder of the importance of women’s heart health.  Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of women!  It is often a silent killer (our symptoms are quite different from those that men experience).  Heart disease kills 1 in 3 women!  So, can I ask you to do three simple things?  First, talk to your doctor about your heart health and ways to maintain and/or improve it.  Second, remind other women of this silent killer and urge them to take steps to reduce their risk factors.  Finally, wear

Window Cards

January 7th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Window Cards are very popular, and today I want to give you a few tips for making them.  First, you need to start with a good die.  I like the Window & Window Box die by Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations.  This is a Bigz die, so you can use it to cut all kinds of different materials. Window cards can be all about perspective – are you on the inside looking out of the window, or on the outside looking into the window?  This is a critical decision, as it will affect the materials/supplies that you’ll want to use.  I made two

Gift Tag Holiday Banners

December 12th, 2013 | by Cheryl Harwick

Today I want to share a couple of gift tag holiday banners.  There are so many fun gift tag dies on the market right now, and banners are still very popular.  It seemed a logical choice to put the two together to create a quick and simple Christmas decoration.                   For the “Merry & Bright” banner, I used the “Tilda Tag” Magnolia DooHickey die.  What a fun tag!  I love the little distress edging, and the topper that goes with this tag.  It is perfect to showcase in a banner.  I began by cutting 12 tags and toppers from white cardstock.  I

Thanksgiving Gratitude Journal!

November 20th, 2013 | by Cut@Home

I am a firm believer in celebrating each holiday by itself (even though I started Christmas shopping months ago) and this year I wanted to start a Thanksgiving gratitude journal for our family to write down what they are thankful for. We are celebrating with my side of the family of which I am the oldest of 10 children. If everyone comes, which there will be a few going elsewhere, there is almost 60 of us so far and counting. I thought it would be fun to pass the journal around and see what kind of response there is. Some

Don’t Forget the Envelopes!

November 12th, 2013 | by Cheryl Harwick

I have a reminder for you today – Don’t forget the envelopes!  Have you ever spent a couple of hours making the most beautiful card to send to a loved one, and hated placing it in a plain white (or ivory) envelope?  I certainly have.  I have a solution for you if you have a few embossing folders (of any size or shape) and a die cutting/embossing machine. Emboss the envelopes! The picture below shows some of the various sizes and shapes of embossing folders that you may have in your stash, and that will work for embossing envelopes. The first folders

Holiday Cards Featuring Spellbinders Build A Wreath Dies

November 5th, 2013 | by Cheryl Harwick

Today I want to share some ideas for holiday cards featuring the Spellbinders Build A Wreath dies.  I love the detail and the versatility of this die set.  It is so easy to create beautiful holiday wreaths that can be decorated in many different ways. To begin, I selected several different types of green cardstock.  I thought that the Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock would be interesting distressed and sanded on a kraft paper background.  I also wanted to try a wreath where ink was applied to add detail and contrast.  For each of these cardstocks, I cut one base

Halloween Tags

October 29th, 2013 | by Cheryl Harwick

For today’s project, I made some quick Halloween tags.  As you know, Halloween is almost here . . . and it’s time to finalize the last-minute details for a night of costumes, trick-or-treating, and lots of fun.   There are just so many cute stickers available, and I thought it would be fun to put them together to make tags to attach to the “treats” for my favorite trick-or-treaters. Pre-made tags are convenient, but they don’t always come in the right color or size to meet your needs.  Fortunately, you can easily make tags.  A tag can be any shape or size

Quick and Easy Halloween Treat Holders

October 15th, 2013 | by Cheryl Harwick

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
