Spellbinders In’Spire Bird Stand Card

Valentine’s Day Love Card!

January 14th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

My card today is a Love Card.  I absolutely LOVE the die I used for the card.  It’s a Hero Arts Fancy Die, “Love and Heart”.  This die is perfect for use with glitter.  Valentines’ Day is just a month away, and I always think of glitter when I think of Valentines. The first step for this card was paper selection.  I needed to figure out the layers and colors involved in order to pick glitter, etc.  I found a patterned paper I liked (the pink with red hearts), and added the coordinating white and dark red Bazzill cardstock.  I trimmed

A “Beary” Big Thank you!

December 30th, 2013 | by Stacy

  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and I know just how to give a Beary Big Thank You to all of your loved ones. Last year my husband and I wrote thank you notes for all the gifts we received from Christmas and it was incredibly fun. It gave us more gratitude for our friends and family and helped us bask in the generosity of others. So, if you’re looking for a way to carry on the Christmas feeling a little longer, then this is for you! For my card, I centered it around the ADORABLE Bear Hug stamp by

Snow Family Card

December 9th, 2013 | by Stacy

If you are in all of this bad weather like I am, then you’re going to feel like a snow family, so why not make a Snow Family Card to celebrate (and get through) your cabin fever!? I can’t wait until our ice/snow melts and I can venture outside again without being scared that I’ll fall and break something. I hope you are all safe as we get on with our delightful holiday season! This card is super fun to make! You have stamps. You have coloring (a personal fav). You have sequins. What more can you ask for, right? I

Darice Puzzle Card

December 2nd, 2013 | by Stacy

Although the holidays are fast approaching, December is a full birthday month in my life which is why this Darice Puzzle Card is a great way to start of the month. I have been so excited about the holidays and getting my Christmas shopping done, that I am now in panic mode for the birthday gifts, cards, and shipping times. I like to be done early so I can enjoy the holidays without most of the hustle and bustle so, I pumped out a few cards for the everyday, the birthdays, and the regular sentiments that I should be able

Sizzix Stand Up Card Dies!

November 27th, 2013 | by Cut@Home

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

Glitter Pinecone Basket

November 18th, 2013 | by Stacy

Gosh, I know that I love the sparkly, but I’m here, yet again, to show you the fabulous Glitter Pinecone Basket. Yes, glitter. (When I promised you lots of glitter projects, I wasn’t kidding.) Don’t you love it when you walk into the christmas isle and you sniff that delightful cinnamon smell and your senses go crazy with holiday memories? It happens to me every single year and I just have to pick up a bundle of cinnamon scented pinecones. It’s a holiday must have for my nose! I have to just say that these glitter pinecones were a blast to

Holiday Scrapbook Layout and Shipping Deadlines!

November 13th, 2013 | by Cut@Home

I know it sounds weird to put holiday scrapbook layout and shipping deadlines in the same heading, but I want to make sure to grab your attention somehow! If you are not a scrapbooker you may not have even paid attention to this post, but you will for sure want to pay attention to USPS’ shipping deadlines so let’s start with those, as these pertain to anyone wanting items shipped to them OR shipping elsewhere. The USPS Holiday Shipping Cutoff Dates (recommended but not guaranteed): Package Services: Dec. 14 APO/FPO Package Services: Nov 12 APO/FPO Priority: Dec 10 (Zip 093 Dec 3) First Class Mail:

Early Christmas Card

November 4th, 2013 | by Stacy

What celebrates the beginning of the holiday season like an early Christmas card? You don’t even have to be holiday crazy like I am (yes, I already have my tree up)! I made this for my wonderful parents who just bought their Christmas plane tickets and we could hardly contain our excitement, so we sent them a little holiday cheer. First off, the thing that makes this card is the Decorated Reindeer Stamp from Deep Red Stamps. I bought it because it was adorable, but let me tell you, it is far more adorable when you use it. I think I

Sizzix Pop n’ Cuts Card

October 28th, 2013 | by Stacy

I made this adorable Sizzix Pop n’ Cuts Card this week and had so much fun doing it! I want to make them by the handfuls now because they are too cute and I really enjoyed working on it. If you have all the pieces pre-cut, you can assemble these puppies in no time. They look more intimidating than they are (I think because they’re 3-D, but Sizzix really does most of the work for you in using their dies. First off, I used the Kaisercraft SugaPop paper. It is fun and spunky and made my always hard task of paper

Trick-or-Treat Scrapbook

October 25th, 2013 | by Doug and Heather

Yes it is that time of year again to dress up all your witches and ghosts and send them off to trick-or-treat and to scrapbook all of those memories. Here is a Halloween page layout that you can use for some of those pictures you will be taking. Bo Bunny makes this one really easy with its Fright Delight Paper Collection Pack which includes stickers with fun little pictures, tags, and sayings like the ones we used. I love when I get paper that does most of the work of scrapbooking. Heather also used  Hero Arts “You Scare Me” stamp set

Die D-lite Foil Card

October 21st, 2013 | by Stacy

If you’ve wondering if Die D-lite Foil cards are a good idea, then I am here to tell you, YES! I am ashamed to admit that I have never dived into foil before this. It is so much fun! I’ve wanted to use it for various projects, but thought I’d test it out on a card. LOVE! I used the new Spellbinders Die D-Lites for this card. I was hesitant to use foil with such little, delicate flower petals because I was uncertain that I would be able to get the petals out without ripping them. It was actually much easier

Candy Roll Gift Idea

October 14th, 2013 | by Stacy

My daughter had a double birthday party last weekend and we needed a gift idea for two four year olds. What four year old doesn’t like candy??? I know none. Therefore, I let Claire choose some candy and we made it into a candy roll gift. It’s funny how I felt like I didn’t have a lot of time to shop for a present, but I sure had the time to make these…and it probably took a little longer. It was fun! I got my feet wet with some of the new spellbinders and I’m loving them. I’m a little

September 30th, 2013 | by Stacy

Tomorrow is OCTOBER so it’s time for you to make your Festive Halloween Banner and get the decor out! Aren’t you so excited? I am! I’ve got my Halloween decorations up and my house smells like baked apples. Nothing could be better! I have been so excited to make a halloween banner that was LOADED with GLITTER! Remember last week and my glitter confession? Well, it’s getting worse. This glitter is so beautiful and the perfect colors. Alright, let’s talk banners. They are so easy! Get your paper, cut the shapes and get creative! What sounds easier or more fun than

Halloween scrapbook Page

September 13th, 2013 | by Doug and Heather

Its getting close to that time of the year again when it starts to cool off and there is a smell of fall in the air so why not do a Halloween scrapbook page. Heather has been in Halloween mode the last few days, I don’t know if it is because we got this fantastic Halloween paper from Bo Bunny or because she is just seeing Halloween stuff already in the stores but we are in full Halloween mode in our house already. Like I have already said, this page starts off with great paper but Heather bought these doilies a

Penny Black Mimi’s Farm

September 9th, 2013 | by Stacy

I am loving all these adorable stamps that are coming out this year!! Seriously, I never thought I’d be a huge stamper, but I’m having more and more fun with each one, and Penny Black’s Mimi’s Farm is no exception. It’s adorable! The minute I saw it I knew the exact project I wanted to do (which never happens) and I couldn’t wait to get started! You only need four things to make these cute little animals. An ink pad, the stamp, and markers, and scissors. Pretty easy/basic necessities. I really wanted to take myself down memory lane and make a
