Creative Embellishments celebrates Christmas

With the first snow arriving in lots of places it put me into the mood to create some projects using Christmas collections and also lots of fabulous and amazing chipboards from Creative Embellishments. I am leaving the photos off and saving this double pager for my 2017 Christmas photos. 

Supply List:
Creative Embellishment Products

For the Christmas tree I using copics in green and yellow and then covered the yellow with gold Liquid Pearls to give it glitter.

I added lots of snowflakes all painted white.

The Merry Christmas was base coated with yellow copics and then covered with Liquid pearls in gold. Glitter on a Christmas pages is the best. All these Christmas chipboards and so many others can be found in the store.


So glad you  could stop by. ... See you again soon,

The Rubber Buggy Best Wishes Gift Card Holder

Hi... so how are you enjoying fall or for some the start of winter with snow staying on the ground already? Today at The Rubber Buggy I am using Blue Fern Studios Amber and Apricot Collection along with some fun stamping and die cuts.  This card has a simple but easy fold flap inside to hold a gift card. 

Supply List:
The Rubber Buggy Products
Paper: Blue Fern Studio Amber & Apricot
Dies: tutti word set Best Wishes, Memory Box Distressed Baptisia Collage
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Vintage Photo, Ranger Die Ink Black Tie
Glue: Beacon 3-in-1 
Other: cardstock, brads, stamp

To make this gift card holding card I used white cardstock paper ... cut to fit your envelope ... but add about a 1.5" band extra to the back panel for the gift card holder section.

Here is the base ready to work on.

On the inside of card I added the decorated papers... I trimmed the flip fold panel and added some cute brads to the outer edges to help hold the pocket for the gift card in tack.

Using brads like this... leave the metal showing... but just cover the back section with paper also.

I stamped inside the card with a fun verse.

To make the front I used the print section of the paper that I loved and sized it first. I die cut the words Best Wishes and also the fun side panel using black cardstock ... a colour that popped off the print and added depth and dimension to the card front.



Thanks for stopping by... see you again soon.

Happy Birthday Card at Dies R Us Blog

Hi .. How are you today. This DT project for Dies R Us showcases a birthday card made using lots of die cuts... some single and some matted for pop of colour and depth with texture too. The papers are from the Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs collection.... the colours were perfect for boarders and flowers.

Supply List:
Machine: Big Shot Express
Paper: Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs
Other: Beacon glue, cardstock, ribbon

To start this card I die cut all the pieces and just placed them on the base for proposed placement. I moved them around until I got the look I wanted.

I also decided that I wanted a ribbon tied bow for and accent and it was going to have to be below behind everything so I placed it first along with the border edge.

In this finished card you can see I matted the background, matted a few flowers for pop of colour and left the others in single layers. Both single and clustered flowers with leaves and different sizes looks perfect.

In the close up you get a better view of the details.

Mixing and using lots of dies gives your card a rich but elegant look... it's a perfect birthday card for my family and friends.

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Paper House Cozy Christmas with acetate overlay

At Paper House today I am showcasing Marbleous paper pad. Specifically the pink and gold combo... but there are so many other colour combos available in the pad. This is a great Christmas page that is rich and elegant.

Supply List:
Paper: Marbleous paper pad
Stickers: Life Organized Planner accentsSTPL - 0014, Cherished Rice Paper border STRB - 0008, Christmas Rice Paper border STRB - 0004, Christmas Magic Cardstock sticker pack Sticky Pix STCX - 2008, 
Accents:  Acetate PAC-0010 
Other: corrugated cardboard, cardstock

To start this page I wanted to make sure that in the background I used the Christmas acetate... so I cut it to fit the print on right side only... leaving the pink n gold left panel plain.

This is the proposed main section with the matted photo.

Then digging into my Paper House stash I found many great accents of all kinds.... lots of gold for sure.

Side panel with some Santa and reindeer from the rice paper strips.... some accents are matted with added corrugated gold paper.

Around the photo some cool snowflakes, reindeer, hearts and the Cozy title. It all showcases the fun photo of my 4 Grand Children at our Christmas celebration get together.

Fun matted strip saying was perfect.  The pink, white and gold is such an elegant and rich combo. I love the Marbleous paper pad.... all the colour combos are amazing.
