Card in a Box - Baby Crib Tutorial

Hi there.  Welcome to my blog.  Today I am sharing the second Card In a Box - Baby Crib Card that I designed.  There is a slight difference in the way this  Hardwood Baby Crib is constructed compared to the  White Zoo Babies one featured in yesterday's post. Full of the cute little critters from Life in the Forest Stamp Set.    No dies or Big Shot Machine required for this second design, just a paper trimmer and some Stampin' Up! ® punches.   Folds flat into a card sized envelope.     Both designs shown in the above photo are included in my Card in the Box - Baby Crib Tutorial which consists of two, three page tutorials with detailed instructions and photos ($5.00 AUD).   The response in the first 24 hours of its release was beyond amazing!!!  A huge thanks to everyone that purchased the PDF instructions.  I would really LOVE to see what you have created, so feel free to share your photos or blog links via email.   Please note - The tutoria

Curvy Keepsake Pram Tutorial

Hi there.  Welcome to addINKtive designs .  If you stopped by my blog from the Zoo Babies Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop , you would have spotted a little pink pram that I made from the Curvy Keepsake Die .  As promised, here's a quick tutorial on how to make one, with a few tweaks and a new colour palette.  Curvy Keepsake Pram Tutorial   1. Cut out the two pieces of the Curvy Keepsake Die with your Big Shot and snip off one of the sides with a handle about 3/4" from the score line. 2.  Emboss the two pointy sides with the Argyle Embossing Folder about 3/4" from the base score line to avoid embossing the other sections.   3.  Assemble the box as usual and curve the cut out section towards the insides of the box.   4.  Cut a 'blanket' from DSP (A fraction smaller than 2" x 2") and glue to the inside base of the pram. 5.  Add a handle made from the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (6-1/2" long). 6.  Make a square rim to go

I can't wait to see what everyone has made with this adorable set. If you get lost, just click on the banner below to take you to our main blog, where you will see a list of all the participants for this round.  Enjoy! I've just had a two week break from my day job (school holidays) so I've been a busy little 'bee' getting ready for blog hops as well as next week's South Pacific Convention on the Gold Coast .  Yay!  I'll have lots to share over the next few weeks, so make sure you check out my blog and Facebook page, AddINKtive Designs , to see the latest news about Convention. I'm just a little bit excited about my projects today as I designed all of the 3D items. They certainly have been a labour of love with countless hours of construction and fussy cutting

CASEing the Catty Blog Hop - The Wedding Section of the Occasions Catalogue

Thanks for stopping by on the CTC Blog Hop . You may have just 'hopped' here from Stasia's blog or landed here directly.  Either way, I hope you are enjoying our Hop. Tonight the Crew have 'CASED' ideas from the Wedding Section of the Occasions Catalogue (pages 42 - 44).  There's lots of inspiration packed into 3 pages and here's what inspired me to make a cute little Tealight Birdhouse - Theme:  Wedding (Favour/Décor) Colour:  Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi, Sahara Sand, Kraft (Baked Brown Sugar) Technique:  White Embossing on Vellum and Colouring the Images Accessories:  Sahara Sand Lace Trim I love the ' Choose Happiness ' Stamp Set and the white embossing on the vellum gives it a soft 'romantic' look.       The DIY Mini Milk Carton was designed by Sam from Pootles Papercraft and I followed a video tutorial on Stampin' Connection made by Maria Russell. You can see it here on You Tube . I also noticed that she has
