Sizzix Step-Ups Cards

Friday, October 24th, 2014

It’s always fun to create and give cards that have different folds or flaps to them, something other than just a straight cut and fold.  Sizzix has created a whole line of dies called Framelits that allow you to create cards with these additional folds and today I’d like to share the Step-Ups Card.

Step Ups

I followed the Instruction sheet staying as close to the suggested design as possible.  If you’d like to follow along you can find the PDF here.  You can see from the photo that the card gives you 3 steps to put sentiments or embellishments on.  In this case I used the flowers cut from the Sizzix Framelits Die Set: Basic Step Ups.

Step Ups-003

You can achieve this darling little tag and sentiment by using the complimentary Sizzix Framelits Die Set w/Stamps: Tags and the Sizzix Clear Stamps: Birthday.  All of these Framelit and Stamps sets were designed by the super talented Stephanie Barnard.

Step Ups-008

Look at the difference you achieve by just changing up the paper and embellishments.  Here I’ve made the perfect birthday card using Graphic 45‘s Time to Celebrate papers. All of these cards fold flat for easy mailing and fit a standard A2 size envelope.  You can reverse the folds on the card base to have your steps on the left instead of the right (I’ll show you this in the video).  You can also use the inside as the pretty side if you want something a little different.

Step Ups-017

Christmas is just around the corner and wouldn’t those on your Christmas card list love opening their envelope to find a card like this on the inside?  If you come join me on the video I’ll show you the whole process step – by – step and also give you a few more examples to inspire you to create your own Step-Ups cards.

Graphic 45 8×8 Matchbook box “The Witch”!

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Hello! I love this time of year. I love to make fall themed, or Halloween projects! Today I am sharing just that…a Halloween decoration. I have used the Graphic 45 Matchbook box 8×8.

Screenshot_6 They also come in 12×12 and 3×5. They take ink, stain, or paint so well. I first gave mine 2 coats of black acrylic paint. Mostly painting the edges, knowing I will be covering them with paper. I then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out my paper, first inking everything with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Black Soot. I used prints that I had  in my stash. I adhered the papers down with Mod Podge, in Matte finish.

Most all my cuts were using the Cameo (design #’s will be below). I cut the witches legs out in black, then added the top piece in orange. I made the witch a skirt, using Crate paper (party streamer). I love using Crate paper in projects. It was very simple. I used a piece of scrap paper in black, added double sided tape, and pleated the paper across, making 3 rows, and fluffing them up. I then used black feathers, and added them in between the layers. I love how it turned out, and was so easy. I made a broom, which is suppose to be a broom covering a sucker. Instead, I used an orange-wood stick as the handle. You could also use a skewer, or even a popsicle stick.

I cut the witches hat from black cardstock as well, and patterned paper & adhered it to the top of my box, with several flowers.

I used a couple of handmade flowers, and the rest were Wild Orchid Craft Violet roses.
I added a spider, using two layers to give it more stability. Added a spider web in the back. The pearls on her shoes were white, by Recollections. I used a permanent marker, to color them black. I also used a “Haunted house” ticket stub and added that within the flowers. I adhered a Tim Holtz Plaquette in the number 31…as it was fitting for this project.

Witch pics 2 008                                  Witch pics 2 005

I added a keyhole that I had in my stash, and a creepy looking owl. The owl was Gold. I used the same black acrylic paint to add a coat of black, followed up with silver paint. Added 2 yellow rhinestone eyes, and it was complete. This was fun to make. I think it will look great sitting on a shelf, or my coffee table. I hope you give the Graphic 45 Staples line a chance…they offer lots of different items to alter.

Here’s a video showing the process of how I put this box together:

Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box, using Tim Holtz Wallflower

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Hello! I’m so excited to share my project with you today! I am using a Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box in Ivory. These also come in black, and kraft. This box is 5×5, and has a window in the front. It has a magnetic closure on the side. I’ve already decided I need lots more of these boxes in my stash…there are so many things that can be done with this box!! A mini album would look great in this, an accordion album, or simply a trinket box.

I used a black acrylic paint, and gave it two coats. I love how easily these take paint, no priming necessary.

G45 box pics 005
The paper I choose is Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower.  I love this paper!! In this 12×12 paper stack, it includes 4×3, 3×3, 6×6 & 12×12. I was able to use the 6×6 patterns, which looked great on this box. I simply traced the inside window, and cut it 1/8″ larger, to frame the window. I inked all the edges, using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Black Soot. I’ve also added a G45 Shabby Chic Door Pull.

I wanted this to be a shadow box, therefore I kept the window open. It would be a great place to add transparency, or lace.

G45 box pics 013              G45 box pics 016

I added lots of pretty flowers from my stash, and a beautiful saying that I printed out. The recipient can add a 2×2 photo, next to the quote, if they’d like.

This really makes a great decorative element to a shelf, or a coffee table. This would also make a great box to hold an album, or a great wedding gift, with the couples picture in it.

Graphic 45 Matchbook box and accordion mini album

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing my Design team project for Cut At Home. I used a Graphic 45 Matchbook box (small). It is 3×5 & 1 1/2 tall. Cut At Home also sell’s these in 8×8 & 12×12. This is such a quick & fun project.

matchbox pics 002matchbox pics 005

 

I first gave it a coat of Antique white paint. These boxes take paint, or spray very well. I added my paper with Mod Podge.

 

matchbox pics 007 matchbox pics 010

 

To add an accordion album to the inside, I took a 6×6 pad of paper by Prima…the Printery collection. I cut them to 4 3/4 x 4 3/4, scored them at 2 3/8 & glued them together. This little album will hold 2×2 or 2×3 photos. I used Tim Holtz Black soot Distress Ink to all the edges.

 

matchbox pics 013 matchbox pics 015

 

I then added seam binding to hold the album together, and it fits perfectly inside this box. Added some flowers, pearls, and trim from my stash. This little box can be used to hold embellishments, or lace, or whatever you’d like!
This was a super easy, and fun project to make! Cut At Home has lots of beautiful papers to choose from that would also look great on this Matchbook.
Here is a process video where I share how this came together.

Products used:

Graphic 45 Matchbook Box: SKU:4500542
Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Black Soot: SKU:TIM19541

Items from my stash: Mod Podge, trim, flowers, pearls, key charm, paint, seam binding.

Graphic 45 and Lawn Fawn Gift Card Holder

Friday, September 26th, 2014

Karen N here sharing with you a Happy Haunting Halloween gift card holder!  My “kids” are all too old for trick-or-treat, so I usually gift them an iTunes gift card in a fun gift-card holder.  This one uses Graphic 45 {An Eerie Tale} paper and Lawn Fawn {Happy Haunting} stamp set along with the new Spellbinders Nestabilities – Labels 39 dies.

Here’s the gift card holder.  On the left is the cover and on the right is the inside.

cah-hauntingKNCAH-hauntKN

 

I cut a white card stock card base using the largest size of the Labels 39.  I folded it and brought the fold slightly inside the die (to make sure the fold wasn’t cut).  Then, I cut four patterns from Graphic 45 Eerie Tale, lined them up and scissor cut the edge.  For the inside patterns, I then cut just a smidge more off so that the card would fold nicely.

The cover image is from the Lawn Fawn {Happy Haunting} stamp set colored with Tim Holtz distress watercolor markers.  I inked the edges with distress ink in Black Soot and Weathered Wood.  Then, I stamped and fussy cut the ghosts to finish off the scene.  Inside, I cut a smaller size label for the sentiment.  On the left side of the inside, I’ll glue dot my gift cards in.  The final touch was to add some ribbon (to cover the edges inside) and tie a bow!

Here’s a video that explains the process.

 

Thank you for visiting today.  Hope everyone has a hauntingly happy Halloween!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Graphic 45 8×8 Easel album using G45 Botanical Tea collection

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Today I’m sharing an 8×8 easel album from Graphic 45 that makes a great keepsake! I used the stunning Botanical tea paper in both the 8×8, and 6×6. I also used the Chipboard1, Flowers, Tags & Pockets…all by Graphic 45. Having the entire collection makes embellishing this album so easy. This paper is one of my all time favorites from G45.

flip album pics 002 flip album pics 004 flip album pics 006

 

I also used a Shabby Chic Door pull from G45, which I added a little Tim Holtz Distress paint in Picket fence over it. Each page has been embellished with trims, pearls, chipboard pieces, even the flowers from the collection. This is a great album to use border punches, to give the pages a unique look. One of the pages, I cut into a banner edge, and added pearl trim to the edge. I’ve added several pockets, to add flip books, tags & mats, which will hold more photos. One of the many things I like about this album, is you can keep it flat while working on it, then open up the bottom flap to stand up, when done.

flip album pics 012 I added a small piece of patterned paper to finish the inside of the easel.

flip album pics 013 flip album pics 015

I used the intricate Spellbinder die: Fleur de Elegance, to add a pocket to the page.

One of the great things about G45’s paper’s is they always have tags, and border strips that you can cut out.

As you can see, having the chipboard pieces that go with the collection makes a perfect match!

I love that this album is really a show piece, it can sit on a shelf, or a coffee table & makes a great memory keeper, that will hold lots of photos.
