My Best Days

December 9, 2020

Good morning!
With our busy hectic lives right now we sometimes don’t have a lot of craft time BUT we really need some time spent crafting and making pretty (or masculine) things. So to fit into our busy schedules simple is GOOD!

To create this layout
Step 1 – cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso ( I used Worn Wood paper pack) and allow to dry or heat with your gun

Step 2 – use your favorite ECD stencil and texture past on the right side top and left side bottom allow to dry or heat set (I used the Spring flower mandala)
Step 3 – Using your watercolor palette, paint the images and allow the paint to run down the page and a couple of brush strips above where your photo will be – this create more visual interest, allow to dry or heat set
Step 4 – stamp 2 images – I close to the right hand image and one above where your photo will be

Step 5 – using coordinating paper (I used the soft finish chocolate) die cut the elegant ornament, and the trio of leaves
Step 6 – tear a piece of cardboard and mat your photo.
Step 7 – adhere everything down and add your title

Thanks for stopping by,
Laura

Clean and simple, die cut, Christmas present tag set

November 8, 2020

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with my monthly guest design team project. This time, I wanted to create a few Christmas present tags that are fast and easy to make and thus perfect if you need to make plenty!

And this is how I created the tags:

Step 1: Take light blue (or another color you prefer) Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut rounded rectangular pieces from the cardstock with your die cutting machine.
Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive on a piece of Worn Wood patterned paper (pick a wooden pattern of your choice) and die cut the paper with the Sled die cut die.
Step 3: Now take a piece of light pink paper (for example from the Christmas Holidays paper pack) and die cut the tiny flowers from that paricular paper.

Step 4: Take another piece of Worn Wood (preferably pick another color for additional contrast) paper and die cut the upper tag pieces from that paper of your choice.
Step 5: Add pink Distress Ink around the edges of the die cut flowers for more contrast. Then adhere all pieces together/in place.
Step 6: Take a piece of (light) brown Soft Finish Carstock and using the Winter Sentiments stamp set, stamp and heat emboss the sentiment using white embossing powder. Fussy cut to a banner and adhere on place. Finish off with Craft Drops (alternatively use half pearls or rhinestones) and a piece of ribbon.

I´ve again also recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch to give a better idea on each and every step. I hope you enjoy it!

This tag idea is so simple that you can die cut several tags at once and make plenty of Christmas present tags at once. You could even sit down with your children and craft together with them. And if you change the colours, they will again look different with the same basic idea.

Wishing you a great time crafting! See you again in December with another crafty tutorial. Take care, Sanna
