3 Cards | Spellbinders December Small & Large Die Kit

Hey there,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are refreshed and ready to start off the new year – here’s to a craft-tabulous 2019! I’m getting things started with some cards using the Spellbinders December Small and Large Die sets. Since these were really made to work together I decided to combine them and while I’ll still have 3 cards for each video, I’m using the flip card die for these 3 and then tomorrow I’ll have some cards using the florals. Here’s what I came up with:

And here are your close-ups:

1

I really like how this card came out – I love that balloon paper and the colors are muted but still so pretty.

1 inside

The little flip that circle does is a lot of fun.

1 close2

Here I wanted to give you a look at how the flip would be for a landscape card. Keep in mind you can flip this 4 different ways for all different looks.

2 inside

I’m in love with that mustard yellow color – you’ll see it keeps coming back in all the cards lol.

2 close3

Finally, I wanted to try something different and see if I could create a spinning circle in this card and I’m really pleased with how it came out.

3 inside

You can watch the video for more details, but basically, I added the fishing line right over top of the right-hand fold and since it’s see-through you can barely tell that it’s there. I looped it all around the card and then hid the knot between my sentiment sandwich.

As always, thanks for stopping by to check out my cards – hope they gave you some ideas to get you started having fun with your kit.

Happy Mail | Loaded Embroidery Hoop – Pink Paislee Confetti Wishes

Hi-ya,

I’m back with more happy mail today. This time sharing some hoop mail I made using Pink Paislee’s Confetti Wishes collection. This collection is so much tropical fun – you can’t look at it without smiling! I made this for an exchange for my half-birthday month, so I’m waaay behind in posting it but I’m really happy with how it came out so I wanted to make sure to share it with you. Here is the video of what I came up with:

And here are some close-ups:

full hoop

Here is the full frame just as it was mailed out.

empty hoop

Here is the empty hoop…let’s fill it up 🙂

front hoop close

This is a close up of the front – I used cut-a-parts, chipboard stickers, and some tissue paper flowers to create a little collage in the center.

tag 1

I created two tags – this first one has some ephemera, chipboard, and stickers. I finished it off with a tab on the side and some orange baker’s twine.

tag 2

The second tag was made combining two of the pattern papers and using one of the tag ephemera pieces – I left that loose so it could move around. I again added a tab and some stickers to finish it off.

I packaged these back-to-back with a cello bag that I saved and topped it with some leftover papers.

frames full

I altered some of the frames from the ephemera and packaged those back-to-back in the same way as the tags.

frames full2 copy

Here are close-ups of each individual frame:

confetti wishes framecake frameparty animal framebird framewand close

I used some of the really colorful striped paper to create a rosette and added that ephemera record and some tissue flowers in the center.

mini shaker 1

I also made some mini shaker windows. Some backgrounds were cut-a-parts and others were made from patterned paper and some stickers. I used the 2-inch waterfall pockets from We R Memory Keepers and they make projects like this so easy because you only have to fuse 1 side.

mini shaker 2

I again packaged these back-to-back like the others.

goodies

I created a little pouch of stickers, cut-a-parts, and ephemera for my recipient. This collection is just too fun not to spread around!

envelopes & washi

I also added in some handmade envelopes and a washi share.

buttons

And I finished up the handmade goodies with some flair buttons – I’m totally loving my button maker.

birthday card

Since this was birthday themed, I thought I’d create a birthday card to send as well. This purple background with the leaves is one of my favorites so I thought I’d let that shine and then popped up a piece of ephemera and placed one of the stickers on top.

card inside

Inside I added a few stickers.

And that finishes up the project for today. Hope you enjoyed what I came up with and Happy Birthday to any of you who are celebrating today! xoxo, Sarah

Shaker cards are one of my favorites to make.

10 Cards | 1 Kit – Stamptember Card Kit

Hello!

It feels like forever since I’ve talked with you, sorry for the long absence – I had a craft show last Saturday and was working on making stock for it. Anywho I’m back now and sharing with you the part 1 of the cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp – Stamptember Card Kit.

Here are some close ups of the cards:

1 front

That candy cut out ephemera is super cute…

1 inside

and the cut-apart sentiments made finishing off the inside of the cards super simple.

1 close up

Super fun, gorgeous colors!

2 front

I thought this card was really fun, I really liked creating this scene and the holographic boarder gives it that perfect extra something.

2 inside

2 close up

I almost forgot about them, but adding those clouds was the perfect final touch.

3 front

These lawn fawn scalloped borders are becoming one of my new favorites and layering them can add a really detailed look to a super simple card.

3 inside3 close up

I do love my dimension!

4 front

I was so excited when I realized the stickers were the same size as the printed paper. This card really just created itself. I LOOOVE the shaker bubbles, they are super simple and add so much to the design.

4 inside

A single line of bears completes the design.

5 front

Masking is always a super fun way to create a scene, I love pealing away the masks and seeing the design come to life.

5 close up

I can’t find that Martha Stewart confetti for sale anywhere – I’m going to be so sad when I eventually run out of it!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards – I’ve got part 2 coming up shortly.

xoxo, Sarah
