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.

Red-White-and-Blue Scrapbook Page featuring Pan Pastels

May 20th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Memorial Day and Memorial Day Weekend are fast approaching, and that inspired me to create a red-white-and-blue scrapbook page featuring a couple of relatives and Pan Pastels.  I just love Pan Pastels.  They are so easy to use and so addictive!  It is always fun finding new ways to use them. I started this project with a couple of favorite family photos — some vintage pics of our men in uniform.  I wanted to make a patriotic page, but didn’t have quite the right paper for it.  While looking for something else, I came across the star metal stencil and I knew immediately how

A Gilded Life for Mothers’ Day

May 6th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Today I have some special projects for Mothers’ Day featuring A Gilded Life products by Spellbinders.  Wow!  How cool are these products?  This Mothers’ Day treat your Mom like the Queen she is.  Make her a crown as a tangible reminder of her “royalty” and top it off with a lovely medallion.  Both projects are super easy, but no one would suspect.  (We won’t tell . . .promise.)   For the medallion — Spellbinders makes this so easy!  Probably the hardest part is selection of a medallion (or bezel) to work with.  There are so many pretty choices in the A Gilded

March 25th, 2014 | by Cheryl Harwick

Today my post is a little different — first I want to show you a fun Sizzix 3-D Umbrella die, and then I want to do a “product review” of the Sizzix Big Shot.  It is finally Spring (although you can’t tell it by the weather), and wedding season will soon be upon us.   The umbrella die is a perfect accessory for bridal showers or weddings, and is also versatile enough to be used for almost any other purpose.   The umbrellas are just so easy to make using this Sizzix Bigz die.  All it takes is one pass through the Big

Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Card and Gift Bag

March 24th, 2014 | by Polly Zastawnik

Today I made a Graphic 45 Botanical Tea card and gift bag for a dear friend of mine, she really loves tea and tea pots, so when Graphic 45 released Botanical Tea I just had to get her a set of the stamps, what better way to give her the stamps but to make her a card and gift bag. Here is a list of the supplies that I used which are available on the Cut at Home website. Spellbinders Elegant Ovals – SKU: S4-425, these are a new release. Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals, small – SKU: S4-113 Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 12 x

St. Patrick’s Day Frame Using Spellbinders Card Creator Dies!

March 5th, 2014 | by Cut@Home

I don’t have many St. Patrick’s Day decorations, so I made this fun St. Patrick’s Day Frame Using Spellbinders Card Creator Dies and Echo Park St Patrick’s Day Sticker Accents.  Simple but fun.                       I started with a wood frame that I picked up from one of our local craft stores.  I sanded the rough spots down, inked the edges of the frame with an ink dauber traced and cut the pattern paper, inked the edges, and applied Scor-Tape to the frame, then carefully laid the paper over the top. That was the hardest part of the whole project because I had

Tiny Gift Jar Boxes

February 20th, 2014 | by Patti Senter

A couple of days ago Christmas arrived again at my house, I received a box of goodies from the Cut at Home store!  Nothing makes an addicted crafter happier than pawing through a box of surprise goodness!  Inside I found a bundle which made these cute little jar boxes.  I love the idea of filling the little box with either a gift card like I show in the one or a couple of bags of tea like I’ve put in the other. The Sizzix  Bigz Score Boards Food Jar die comes complete with the darling jar, spoon and box to hold a

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

Filigree Cards

January 30th, 2014 | by Patti Senter

Do you ever have that crafty time where your mind just seems to be blank and you’re searching for inspiration and ideas? That’s what I was like this week before I came up with my filigree cards.  It was like there just weren’t any crafty thoughts swirling around upstairs.  I decided I really liked the look of little bits and pieces on cards and maybe I should do that.  It would be great to have lots of things to choose from as I assembled my cards.  I got out all my Spellbinders dies that had flourishes and filigrees and swirls

I am finally back to continue our tour, and today features Sizzix CHA 2014 booth! Oh my goodness, there was SO much to see there!

Tim Holtz at CHA 2014!

January 17th, 2014 | by Cut@Home

One of the highlights of my trip last week was seeing Tim Holtz at CHA 2014! If you have never met him, let me tell ya, he has so much energy! I don’t know how he does it. He runs all over the show doing demos at several booths, meets with vendors and retailers, and still takes the time to answer questions and allows you grab a photo with him! He really knows how to do his P.R. and make you feel at ease.                   I also want to share photos of some of his new dies and Textured Impressions pending release

Another Nice Mess!

December 26th, 2013 | by Patti Senter

Here’s a great card for those guys that have birthdays coming up.  Using Deep Red‘s cling stamps, Birthday Rx and Laurel and Hardy Nice Mess, you can quickly put together this masculine birthday card for all those birthday boys on your list.              Create your card using a standard A2 size card base (when folded it will measure 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).  Mat decorative paper with a solid mat to help it pop, here I used the plaid with a black mat.  Add a narrow strip of black about an inch from the bottom of the mats,

Happy Hanukkah Card

November 26th, 2013 | by Cheryl Harwick

Hanukkah begins this week, and so I made a Happy Hanukkah card.    This card features a stamp set by Lawn Fawn called “Happy Hanukkah”. I used my Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics dies to cut the blue and white layers.  These dies make card layering so easy, and I love how the stacked layers look.   I wrapped a layer of ribbon around the left side of the top blue layer only. I wanted my stamped images to be bold, and to achieve this look I decided to emboss them.  Rather than using a colored embossing powder, I used a colored ink and then applied clear, super-fine detail embossing
