Photopolymer Stamp Set - Project Life Point and Click

I have a confession to make, I'm not a scrapbooker and I did start off all enthusiastic about the introduction of Project Life, acquired quite a bit of stuff to get me started and I even bought a new Canon Digital Camera, but I haven't had the motivation to go down that path just yet.  Maybe one day when I have a bit more time on my hands, I'll give it my best shot.

I really scratched my head wondering what on earth I was going to make for this 'hop' and then the light bulb moment happened when I decided to download the digital version to use with my e-cutter and combine it with the photopolymer stamp set to make a little gift bag using the Cool Like That Giftable Templates.  So here's my one and only project to share with you today -

Point and Click Meets Cool Like That Gift Bag
The colour palette is taken from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection and I have cut up a couple of the cards to use as DSP on the gift bag.

Thanks for stopping by on the hop.  Up next is Kerry Willard Bray from Peonies and Paper Chains.  
Or back to Wendy Weixler from Wickedly Wonderful Creations.

If you want to stick around a little longer, here's a run down on how I made the gift bag -

1.  Download the Cool Like That Giftable Templates (page 10 of the Annual SU Catalogue) and PL Point and Click Digital Download into your e-cutter program.

2.  Position the cluster star digital stamp from Point and Click onto the gift bag template and turn it into a cutting file to produce the negative cut out on the bag.

3.  Send to your e-cutter and let the machine do the hard work for you.


 4.  Attach part of a PL card  inside the gift bag so the pattern can be seen through the stars.

5.  Assemble the gift bag with Sticky Strip and embellish (I think the photo shows you enough detail to explain how I did that bit).

How clever! I love how you did this and I almost forgot about that gift bag template…that I've never used! You've inspired me to give it a try.

Great bag Bronwyn! Love the way that you used the stars image from the stamp set as a cut out in the front of the bag. Looks awesome! Love all the colours and all the elements that finish off the gift bag.

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
