Scrapbook Layout featuring Graphic 45 Precious Memories

June 29th, 2015

Happy Monday! Can you believe that June is just about over! My granddaughter just turned two last month, boy does the time fly! Today I created a scrapbook layout of my granddaughter, my daughter-in-law took this picture the other day and I absolutely loved it, I knew it was going to be my next scrap project.

I decided to use Graphic 45 Precious Memories for this layout, I like the soft colors in this collection and it worked perfectly with my layout. I also used Spellbinders Celebrations card stock as well as a couple sheets from my stash.

This was a fun layout to make. I decided that I wanted to frame the picture with a few different layers of paper. I used the peach floral print “Cherish” for the back ground of the layout. I used the coordinating blue floral print “Pat-A-Cake” for the border and the base frame around the picture. I cut the border strip 1 1/2″ x 12″ and the frame at 6 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. The next frame was cut from Celebrations card stock, it was the medium green in the assortment. I cut this at 5 3/4″ x 7 3/4″, for the final frame I used a green dotted paper, it is from an old retired Graphic 45 line. I cut that piece 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″, the picture is a 5″ x 7″ print.

I also used a Bo Bunny double dot card stock “Slate Dot” for my layout. I cut a 1″ x 12″ strip and layered that over the floral strip I cut, next I cut three chains from a Sizzix die that I have called Chained. (It is no longer available for purchase at Cut@Home) This die worked perfectly with my layout since it matches the links in the swing on the picture. I used a die cutting machine to cut out the lettering and to create the banners. But even if you do not have an electronic die cutting machine the banners are easy to make.

The layout uses my granddaughters name as the first letter in all the words that I chose to describe her personality. Then I added the flowers and enamel dots to finish off the layout. The biggest tip that I have for scrapbook layouts is never adhere anything to you page until you have everything where you want it. I just lay everything out and move things along as I go, you can also use a magnetic platform and use magnets to hold the pieces down until you are sure of the placement. I cannot tell you how many times that I decide to move something, add something or omit something at the last minute!

Once I have everything just how I want it then I begin to adhere everything down to the page.

Here is a look at the finished page:

I absolutely loved how this layout turned out! It was so much fun!

Sizzix Bigz XL Box and Card Die

June 26th, 2015

Karen N here today showing off a gift I made for a friend using the Sizzix Bigz XL Box and Card Die.  With some of the XL dies, you can get away with using the regular cutting plates, but with this one, you’ll definitely also need the extended cutting pads (available for a heck of a deal at Cut@Home) as the box is longer than the regular cutting pads.  Of course, I used my Big Shot to cut.  :)

Here’s a video that shows you how to put together the box and a little more about my project:

And here’s a picture of the project:

CAH_birdbox1

I cut the box using white cardstock.  I used a fairly heavyweight cardstock, it would hold it’s shape.  I used a stencil and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick, Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspberry.  To put the box together, I used the FABULOUS 1/4″ Angel Craft Tape.  This tape is wonderful and sticky!  I then tied a 3 Girl JAM ribbon and bow around the box and hung a charm with some white Timeless Twine.

Then I cut 3 cards (they are 3.5″x2.5″ and can be cut with the die or a cutter).  I stamped three of the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy Stamps (LoVe these birds!!!) and colored them up with Copic Markers.  I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick, Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspberry.  Then I stuck washi tape around the edges to tape a gift card to the back.  Here’s what that looks like:

Easy and fun way to give a special gift!  Hope you enjoyed seeing my project today.  See below for a complete supplies list.

Craftily yours,

Karen

Sizzix Baby Dresser Card !

June 24th, 2015

Hello! Today on the blog I’d like to share an adorable & simple baby card. My niece will be having a baby girl soon and this die set from Sizzix is perfect! I’m using the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 12pk Card Baby Dresser.

2015-06-23 16.45.34download

This die comes with 12 separate dies, one of them being your card base. The finished card is an A2 sized card, therefore it will fit in a standard sized envelope.

2015-06-23 16.46.13  This card was so quick & easy to put together. I have a video, showing the process. If you’re interested, please click video below.

I used mostly scraps of patterned paper for my card. Using my Sizzix Big Shot Machine, I first cut my card base. I then folded it along the score lines. I continued to cut all my die pieces. The dresser front and drawers, background shape, baby onesie, and the sentiment “baby”. I also cut a bow from my Cameo machine.

While working on this card, I remembered I had a tiny hanger in my stash, which I thought would be perfect to hang the onesie!

2015-06-23 16.46.04  I then adhered all my pieces down, using tiny brads for the dresser drawer pulls.

This die set really did all the work for me, it was so simple to use. For the sentiment baby, I cut out another banner shape to go behind the word.

Screenshot_2   I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. There are lot’s of dies like this from Sizzix for all occasions to choose from.

Thanks for stopping by!
