Circle Creations

Posted by on Oct 20, 2017 in Big Shot, Birthday, Other | 0 comments

Creating with circles is fun!  Today’s share has 4 layers, 3 colors (Early Expresso, Wild Wasabi and Calypso Coral), an assortment of circles, Garden Trellis (143741) embossed background and a sentiment.  How do you like it? This was my second sample and I love it!  The layers are popped up with dimensionals and I added a Wild Wasabi Enamel Shape and Wink of Stella on the sentiment, which you can’t see on the photo but in person, this card is a real WOW!  Try to recreate this card using the colors and circles of your choice!  Color is fun and I’ll be trying out a few more color combos myself!  I’d love to see your creations! Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Mini Gift Bags!

Posted by on Oct 19, 2017 in 3D, Holiday | 0 comments

These adorable little gift bags were inspired by Jessica Taylor.  The one thing I like about creating projects, is that when you see something you like, you don’t have to have the same supplies to recreate the project.  In today’s project, I used the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Stack from the 2016 Holiday catalogue.  To make one bag, you need 2 – 6″ x  6″ pieces of DSP.  Score at 1 1/2″ on three sides. on one sheet, cut out the two 1 1/2″ squares, attach to two pieces at the bottom, put adhesive on the remaining two 1 1/2″ squares as well as the back two 1 1/2″ sides.  Attach the squares to the back side panels and then adhere the front panels onto the back panels. Punch two holes for your ribbon, make the tag of your choice.  Cut two pieces of ribbon 7 1/2″ long, (I used the Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack #144636 (page 21) from the Holiday catalogue) and feed through the tag and then through the right hole on the front of the bag and tie a single knot.  Feed the other end in through the left hole and tie another knot.  Feed and tie the second ribbon through the holes on the back of the bag.  Add a little treat or surprise and your gift is ready! Why not make a mini gift bag today?  Have fun and try it.  Use whatever supplies you have and see how easy it is to create this bag.  Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Vintage Leaves Thank You

Posted by on Oct 4, 2017 in Big Shot, Thanks | 0 comments

Time to start posting!  Today’s share features Vintage Leaves–perfect for a fall card.  On the background, we have the Woodlands Textured Impressions. To make the colored leaf, I started out with a Whisper White piece of cardstock.  Then I sponged fall colors over the entire piece–Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  When the entire sheet was covered with color, I stamped the vintage leaves in Always Artichoke and cut them out with the coordinating framelit. The rest of this card is pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions, or would like more information about making this card, please contact me by phone, e-mail or messenger and I will be happy to help! Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...
