Prills by US Artquest

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Today I want to share an awesome product – Prills by US Artquest.  Prills are little round balls of fun — they are beads (no hole) very similar to the sprinkles that you put on ice cream or frosted cookies.  They come in a lot of different colors and color combinations, most with a fun name.  Here’s a look at a card that I made using Prills and a little glitter as the embellishments.

Prills are natural and non-toxic.  They are also heat-resistant and acid free, making them appropriate for many paper crafting uses.  My favorite use for Prills is flower centers.  I love the color variety and the texture for that purpose.  Fans of the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations flowers may recognize Prills as one of their favorite embellishments too.   Here is a close-up of my flower center using “Go Mango” Prills and Lion’s Mane art glitter by Art Institute.

Prills are simple to use — they attach with a little glue or another kind of adhesive like Scor-Tape.  They can also be used with an embossing paste or a cement, etc.  The possibilities are endless.  Please see the short video for a quick look at some Prills, and how I used them to embellish the flower center, a snow scene and an ice cream cone.

In the video, I used “Prill Spill” for the cupcakes and “Minnie Prill” for the snow scene.  The Christmas tree is the “Little Bits Christmas Tree die by Taylored Expressions, and the ice cream cones were made using the “Cupcake Stand” die by Justrite Stampers (of course Prills would be perfect to decorate cupcakes too!).

Prills are available in three different sets of 12 jars each — “Bright Ideas”, “Rock N Roll” and “Spring Bling”.  It is very difficult to choose between them!  You can find them on the Cut@Home site under US Artquest or via this link.

Let me also take a minute to describe the card above.  The poinsettia is made using the “Joyful” die by Penny Black.  You’ll want to cut the flower head twice to achieve the same fullness.   Both should be attached only at the base — you want the petals to be able to move freely.  The “joyful” word is from a die set by Paper Smooches, “Christmas Words”.

Supplies available from Cut@Home:

Prills “Go Mango”, “Prill Spill” and “Minnie Prill” (Prill sets and a color chart available here)

Penny Black die “Joyful” (SKU 51-059)

Die cutting machine — I used my Sizzix Big Shot (SKU 657900)

Taylored Expressions “Little Bit Christmas Tree” (SKU TE433)

Justrite Stampers “Cupcake Stand” die set (SKU SW-04880)

Supplies from my stash:  assorted cardstock, Paper Smooches “Christmas Words” dies, ribbon, scrapbooking glue (I used Scotch Quick-Drying Adhesive).

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’

Bokeh Time Gift Set

Thursday, 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.

P1140558

 

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,

Spellbinders 3D Christmas Tree Cards

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that Christmas is soon on it’s way again and it’s certainly not too early to be thinking about making cards for those special someones on your card list.

P1130766

Spellbinders has released this fantastic Shapeabilities 3D Christmas Card Tree which creates this stunning dimensional card front.  Now whom on your Christmas Card List wouldn’t love to find this in their mailbox.  Oh and speaking of mailing, the tree will fold flat to fit in your envelope.  The one I’ve made is a standard A2 size card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The dies include the Christmas ornaments, holly and star to add that extra somethin’ special to the tree.

P1130763

Include a few packages that you’ve cut from your scraps and wrapped with ribbon or cord for under the tree, there must be presents under the tree!  I also topped the Ornaments with a dab of Silver stickles to add that little Christmas sparkle.

P1130764

For the inside of my cards I picked another Spellbinders die, the Die D-Lites Miracle of Lights.  I added some Martha Stewart Glitter Glue to the flames so they’d shimmer a little and stamped my sentiment from JustRight Stampers – Christmas Inner Thoughts collection.

P1130761

I won’t lie to you, if you add the holly and Ornaments like I have this card is a little time consuming, but so worth it!  If you want to speed up the process use some Stickles on the Ornaments instead of cutting the individual pieces, but I’ll tell you you’ll prefer the die cuts to the Stickles!  Join me on the video and I’ll show you how I put the card together.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

The Spellbinders holiday dies should be arriving early this week, so look for those to start shipping very soon!

Make sure you check out the preview videos of all the new Sizzix releases on our Youtube channel. Four new collections were just released this weekend: Triplits by Stephanie Barnard, 25th & Pine by Basic Grey, Winter by Rachael Bright and Halloween collection by Tim Holtz. Homemade & Homegrown by Stephanie Ackerman is due to arrive this week as well.

For those of you who were trying to shop  Thursday and Friday, you may have noticed our store looked pretty empty :( We had an “update gone wrong” and it wiped out about 1500 products from our store! YIKES!! The joys of online retail! My web guru extraordinaire was able to get all the products back on the site within 24 hours (shout out to Steve! Thanks buddy!!). That created inventory issues, so the whole gang here at Cut@Home worked all day Friday getting the inventory straightened around. My crew is the BEST, and we were totally functioning again by Friday night! Awesome! Anyway, my sincerest apologies to any of you who were inconvenienced in any way.

Now I am gearing up for a BIG Labor Day sale! So be looking for a newsletter later this week and get ready to SHOP!

Take care, have a good week and happy scrappin’ to you all!

Decorated Graphic 45 Gift Tags

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Summer celebrations are here, and I have been in serious need of gift tags for all those birthday presents and little girl parties we are invited to. I have had in my stash a package of AMAZING Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tags that been begging to be used.  In my previous post, I have made some cards using Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack, and what a better way to have coordinating tags and cards.

I made 4 gorgeous tags in less than 20 minutes.

Let’s get started, the tutorial shows how to make one tag. However you can simply follow the same step multiple times and make an “assembly line” of tags.

1.  Cut pre-printed tag from Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack.

2. Stamp sentiment “It’s a beautiful day!” from JustRite Stampers Cupcake celebrations using different color ink for each word.

3.  Adhere stamped tag to Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tag.

4. Decorate using arrow stickers included in the Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack.

5. Place enamel dot and/or decorative gem.

6. Tie a Ribbon

I had a few of these cute chevron baggies laying around and figured I could deliver a few special “birthday” cookies to a close friend.

Tim Holtz Distressed Doily Cards

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Are you a fan of Pinterest?  I sure am, it can be down right addicting at times!  But it also has a wealth of inspiration.  I ran across a card the other day where they had used a doily type die for the front of their card and I thought hmmmm I have Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Distressed Doily Die and I’ve never used it!  Time to get that puppy out and play.  This is the result –

P1130080

I just love how it turned out!  I cut the doily across the bottom half of my card base front leaving the fold intact.  Then I cut another doily from the Tim Holtz Wallflower paper collection to shadow over top.  You can actually cut both together. I’m using the Sizzix Big Shot, you’ll need to try it with your machine and also take into account the weight of your cardstock that you’re making the card base from.  I found that if I placed my card base next to the die and then the lighter weight decorative paper over top I could cut them both at the same time.  It takes trial and error to see how your machine works.  But never fear, if you cut them separately as I did this first card (in the photo above) just offset the doilies if they don’t line up.  I dropped the top one down just a smidge as well.

P1130082

See how there”s space between the layers?  I used foam adhesive dots to pop the decorative layer out from the card base and attached it directly to the cardstock along the bottom.  This gives great dimension.  I trimmed both layers above doily so the front is almost cut in half.  I tied the front and back together with seam binding I’d dyed using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Forest Moss.

P1130085

On the inside I used a stamp from JustRite Stampers Black Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five for my sentiment.  This was done with Black embossing powder to give it just a little lift and mounted onto a Spellbinders Labels 36.  The birds and leaves are fussy cut from the paper and positioned to the side of the sentiment.  Tucked back behind is a frayed piece of burlap and on the right hand bottom I inked and tucked in a flourish from Marianne Designs Vintage Swirls.

P1130087

Here’s another card which you’ll see along with a third in the video.  This is the same principle but this time turning the die upside down and leaving the card base intact and folding it into an easel card, propped open by the robin that’s been popped up on the inside.  Check out the video as I walk you step by step in the creation of the first card above and examples of two others.  Plus ideas on how to enhance the back of the cards.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
