I love to scrap baby photos! The fabulous ModaScrap Blue Cotton Candy is perfect for those little baby boy photos!
Here’s how I created this project:
Step 1 – Trim one patterned paper to 11.5 x 11.5 – ink the edges using brown ink then adhere to a full 12 x 12 sheet of your choice and ink the edge. Step 2 – Trim another patterned paper to 11 x 5 and ink edges. Step 3 – Trim another sheet to 10 1/4 x 3 and ink edges. Step 4 – Trim another sheet to 12 x 1 1/4 and ink edges. Step 5 – Die cut a 4 1/4 circle using soft finish white cardstock and a 3 3/4 stitched circle from patterned paper –– adhere together. Step 6 – Die cut two Valentines Edges from white cardstock . Step 7 – Adhere all the paper like shown.
Step 8 – Adhere your double sided adhesive sheet to your soft finish white cardstock and die cut 3 flowers of your choice, the butterfly body, the circle and the tag from the Love, Life Tag. Then apply blue silk microfine glitter and rub with fingers to bring out the shine. Step 9 – Die cut more flowers to layer using your white cardstock and the pieces of paper left from your trimmings and assemble flowers. Step 10 – Die cut two of the butterfly overlays – one from white cardstock and one from a piece of patterned paper. Step 11 – Die cut one ready to bloom using white cardstock. Step 12 – Die cut one heart tag and one tree overlay using the Love, Life Tag die in white and one in patterned paper. Step 13 – Assemble butterfly, tree, and tag keeping the pieces of hearts from the tree to make the trail for the butterfly.
Step 14 – Using the small circle die, die cut the words from the title sheet of the Blue Cotton Candy paper and the cut out the title piece. Step 15 – Mat photo. Step 16 – Assemble the layout!
Our dog was a champion before she retired and came to live with us. Her ribbons were fabulous – a pleated rosette around a big padded circle with gold printing at the top, long tails cascading below. They serve as an inspiration for today’s project: Ribbons to make for friends to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion or give as an award to someone who has triumphed over illness or adversity.
I chose Live, Laugh, and Love – A Way With Words dies that are longtime favorites. ‘Live’ goes to the friend who is five-years cancer-free. ‘Laugh’ goes to the friend who brings smiles no matter what is going on. ‘Love’ goes to my husband.
But you don’t have to choose the same dies or sentiments! It’s very easy to customize this project.
Decide what you want to say and size the circles and fishtail ribbons accordingly. Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection offers so many options.
Hi Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing a beautiful Love & Happiness Wall Hanging. My starting point for my wall hanging was the Ready to Bloom die and the different die cut images just grew from there. I used a variety of dies from ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio as well as a stamp from Joset Designs to make the wall hanging. Let me show you how to make it.
Though Valentine’s Day is in the rear view mirror, I kept going with cards that use the ‘love’ die from the Baby Love set. I’m getting ahead for weddings and anniversaries. And I needed a special box for a pair of earrings I’m giving to a friend.
I’m nowhere close to done with that ‘love’ die. I’ve yet to use it with the word ‘Baby’! And I’m still happily choosing patterned papers and cutting leaves and flowers to make more of the Pitcher Cards…
Instead of specific instructions for each project, I’m going to provide some tips, design strategies, and a supply list so you can duplicate the cards as shown.
I hope you’ll use the ideas as a jumping-off point for cards with a similar feel in a totally different color palette or a different size. After all, no two people have the same stash of patterned papers, not everyone likes mixing together as many patterns as I do.
Hi, it’s Sandy Diller here with you and I have a fun project that could be used as a gift. I like taking a small gift to the hostess of a dinner party and this is just perfect for that. The pocket is the right size to hold a couple of handmade note cards with envelopes. This is a double tutorial today showing you how I made both the pocket and cards.
