I was playing around with the Mix & Match Cranberry Paper line again! I am a huge fan!
I have made origami hearts before scrapbooking but I knew I had to try to incorporate them in a layout. My love of different is apparent in my layouts.
Upon flipping my calendar to today, I realized it is one of the SWEETEST days of the year.
National Chocolate Day.
Need I say more?
This prompted me to run out and buy some……wait for it……CHOCOLATE!!!
Are you like me, and always looking to bless someone with a sweet little treat every now and again?
Making it quick…and easy.
This is how most of us love to work, if we are able.
Let us show you how cutting a corner can also be FUN! … using the 4-Way Corner and Hole Punch to create a beautiful card.
Hybrid scrapbooking is using digital and traditional scrapbooking on the same project. In this project I started my pages using the Sorbet digital kit adding my printed photos and then topping it off with Sorbet traditional products.
Easter 2017 is just around the corner. With that, we are hopping around looking for Easter treats for our co-workers and family. We certainly do our fair share of eating sweet treats around the Creative Memories office. Rarely is the candy dish empty (or maybe it is empty all too often and we’re constantly refilling it; I guess it depends on how you look at it.)
Let us show you how to create a most-adorable gift box for those special little treats using just one piece of Cardstock and one piece of Designer Print Paper. Or, just create the base box and decorate the outer portion of the box with paper and a cute border.
Today I am so excited to be sharing this project with you! I recently hosted a baby shower for a friend of mine and to create all of the party decor and elements I used the DIGITAL Cake My Day Collection!
Everything was pre-designed on my computer and then I sent it off to have it printed on cardstock at my local print shop. It was super fast, super fun to make, and best of all — it knocked the socks off the mama-to-be, which is always fun!
So, let’s get started! What I did first was downloaded the Cake My Day collection from the CM shop. Once the files were purchased, I uploaded them into my software and started to design!
Today I want to share with you one of my absolute favourite fun folds for making cards. It’s called an easel fold. Every time I’ve given an easel card to a friend or family member they are always received with such awe and amazement – when really, it’s such an easy card to make!
So, I chose to use Mi Amor for these cards because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s sort of fun to go all out and make an extra special, handmade card to show the ones you love just how special they are!
Nothing makes me happier than using up my scrap paper to put together a card/envelope duo that is going to make a loved one’s day. Last week I shared with you some super fun and simple cards that you could put together using the Painted Harvest collection. Today we are going to make some coordinating envelopes!
For the blog post on how to make the cards jump over HERE!
What’s a girl to do when she loves a product collection so much that she just can’t get enough? Make holiday cards with it, that’s what!
Painted Harvest is just stunning with its bright colours and beautiful patterns. It would be a shame to pack it away after creating autumn layouts. The designer paper pack is incredibly versatile and works wonderfully in some fun and funky holiday cards.
To create our cards you’ll need the following supplies:
Cut a Brown Cardstock card base to measure 4-1/4″ X 5-1/2″ (8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″). Cut a Royal Blue Cardstock mat to measure 4-1/8″ X 5-3/8″. Cut a Painted Harvest Patterned card layer to measure 4″ X 5-1/4″. Adhere these layers together with even borders around all four sides and then set off to the side.
To create your tree simply cut a triangle out of Royal Blue Cardstock using your 12-inch Paper Trimmer. Use scissors to free-hand cut a trunk for your tree using Brown Cardstock. Then use the smallest circle in the Circle Patterns for the Custom Cutting System along with the Blue Blade and cut some circles using papers from the Painted Harvest collection that have blue tones or accents in them. Next use the same papers and punch a few times using the Bubbles Cartridge from the Border Maker System. Use the circles cut and punched out to decorate the tree. Add rhinestones to bring some shine and sparkle to your holiday card!
For the second card you will follow the first steps outlined above to create your card base and the card layer and mat.
To create the tree you will again cut a triangle out of the Royal Blue Cardstock and a trunk from Brown Cardstock using your scissors. To create the tree decoration, you will punch several snowflakes using the same blue toned/accented patterned paper from the Painted Harvest collection. You will then layer the snowflakes until you feel that the tree is sufficiently covered. Next use rhinestones to decorate your beautiful tree!
Be sure to check back tomorrow when I’ll be sharing how to make coordinating envelopes for these cards!
Here’s a project that will help you kick-start your holiday decorating. This sampler made with our beautiful Christmas Past Collection and Gold Shimmer Cardstock evokes the warm cozy feelings of being”home for the holidays”.
You can use the sampler with an easel on your mantle as I did, or it would also be great on your old Creative Memories Everyday Display. After the holidays are over, use the sampler as a title page for your annual Christmas album or cut it apart into three vertical panels to use as borders on scrapbook pages.
