Kat Scrappiness November Mood Board Challenge

Hi Everyone!

I'm back with a card using inspiration from the current challenge going on over at the Kat Scrappiness blog.  If you haven't joined in, you have until November 30th to upload your creation.  A $25 gift card to the Kat Scrappiness shop is up for grabs for the winner.  Just use the color palette featured in the mood board along with at least one Kat Scrappiness product and you have a chance to win!

Here's the inspiration for this month:

My eye immediately went to that shiny teal pumpkin on the left part of the board along with the items featured in the top left square.  I knew I wanted to use foil on my project.  I purchased a bunch of these Foilables Toner Sheets from Kat Scrappiness awhile back and am in love with using foil again.  I happened to find a background of what I think looks like a kind of modern plaid in the pack, so I used that as my starting point. Here's what I came up with: 

  IMG_7281

Creating layers using the mood board colors offers the same feeling of a plaid pattern that overlaps.  For the sentiment panels, I used the Kat Scrappiness Cross-Stitched Rectangles to add a "cozy" look that I think the mood board conveys.  Finally, the wooden dots from My Mind's Eye mimic the kind of buttons I feel like you would see on a plaid coat or jacket.  

  IMG_7289

"Modern Country"?  "Homespun Disco"?  I'm trying to think of what to call this card, LOL!

New Video Series: Gift Tag Greetings

Hi Everyone!

IMG_7168

I'm so excited to bring you my first YouTube series--it's called Gift Tag Greetings.  In these videos, I will be featuring weekly tutorials on creating gift tags for festive packaging throughout the year.  My plan is to have them run for 6 weeks at a time on Fridays.  Each set of videos will follow a particular theme.  This Friday will start the Holiday Cheer theme.  I'll be showing you all kinds of gift tags for this upcoming holiday season, so be sure to subscribe to my channel to get all the latest updates.  Other themes I plan to do in the future will include birthday, Valentine's Day, cooking...etc.  I'm always up for suggestions too, so let me know if there's something specific you'd like me to feature.  My tag style is like my card making style, clean and simple with pops of color and lots of die cuts.  In today's post and video, I wanted to share with you some things I like to have on hand as part of a gift tag making kit.  I have this listed below too, with some links to suggested products.  Enjoy!

 

  

Gift tags have always been a favorite of mine.  They're a quick and easy way to dress up an otherwise plain gift bag or package.  Plus, you can use all the fun dimensional embellishments you have on hand without worrying about the constraints of an envelope.  Another bonus:  Your friends will love that they can "recycle" your tag on another gift! 

Tag 2

I create my tags using metal dies, but you could also use a stencil or template if you do not have a die cutting machine. Whatever you use, I recommend  110 lb. or higher weight cardstock to make a sturdy tag.  Here is a list of some gift tag making supply suggestions.  Keep in mind, these are only suggestions--pick and choose what works for you.  The idea is to try to use what you have on hand in your cardmaking/scrapbooking stash.

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: Pop Out Die With Patterned Paper

 

Hi Everyone!  I'm here with a project using the Kat Scrappiness Pop Out die.

This die is so much fun and makes such a statement with whatever you put behind it.  Today, it's a silly rabbit from Paper Smooches' A Little Lovin' stamp set.  How funny is his face?  He's just so hopeful that you'll pay some attention to him!  How can you resist?

I did my usual shaped card using the largest square from the Cross Stitched Square die set.  Again, I just simply kept the top edge of the die over the top fold of a 4.4 x5.5" notecard and ran it through my Sizzix machine.  Easy, square-shaped card with an added little cross stitched detail.  I used some Neenah Desert Storm for the notecard.

For the pop out feature, I cut a square of navy cardstock with the 2nd largest square from the Cross Stitched Square die set.  I then backed it with a piece of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter paper cut with the same square.  Be sure to layer the papers back to back so you get the fold correct as you'll see below.  I then used the Pop Out die to cut a window into the two papers.

I adhered the layers together avoiding the pop out part, then, I folded back the solid and patterned triangles with a bone folder to make the folds nice and crisp.

To finish, I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Loads of Fun with Versamark and heat embossed it with white powder.  I popped up the panel over the front of the card and added the little rabbit peeking out from the window.  I had to cut him down a little so his feet wouldn't stick out.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I have all the products I used from the Kat Scrappiness shop linked below. Be sure to use my coupon code: Heidi10 to receive 10% off your purchase (see coupon rules in the shop for more details).  Have a great day!

Video: Christmas Cardmaking Haul, Plus--My Other Plans for Christmas Papercrafting

Hi Everyone!

It's Christmas card and project time, so I did a little shopping for some fun new products.  I have a video below showing the card making supplies.  I'm getting ready to start a new YouTube series, so I picked up a few crafty things for that as well.  Stay tuned for more details, I'm really excited for my first series!   I'll have all products linked below for easy shopping.   Enjoy the video!

 

 

Other Christmas Project Plans

Marcaroon ornaments

I also picked up some supplies for Christmas scrapbooking from Carta Bella's A Very Merry Christmas line as well as Crate Paper's Falala.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  I just love all the "old-timey" Christmas images!  I plan on using these for my regular Christmas scrapbooking, but I'm also going to try to incorporate them into cards and tags to stretch the products a little.   

I usually do some kind of a December Daily, so this year, I thought I'd try the Happy Memory Planner for a quick and easy way to record all the December fun.    

Just a reminder.  If you want quick crafty updates from me without having to open email or just want to talk about new projects or products, my Facebook page is the place to be.  You can click here or on the link on my sidebar to follow and join in.   Have a great day!

Kat Scrappiness Design Team Project: Birthday Shaker Card

Hi Everyone!  I have a happy shaker card for you today using the Kat Scrappiness Cross Stitched Circle dies along with some of Kat's sparkly sequins.

I was in the mood to make a birthday card for this project and was inspired by all the fun colors in Kat's Rock Candy sequin mix.

I chose some colored cardstock from Gina K.'s Island Dream and Doodlebug's Swiss Dot Petite Paper Pad to go with the theme.

I made two frames using the 2nd and 3rd smallest Cross Stitched circles and the 1st and 2nd smallest circles

I used the 3rd smallest circle to cut out a solid circle from the Doodlebug purple polka dots.  This is my back to my shaker.  I adhered it to the front of a white card base off to the side on the bottom left and put a little mound of sequins on top.  I'll eventually overlap the smaller green shaker circle on top.

I cut out another smaller circle using some of the bright green polka dot paper from the Doodlebug pad and put some sequins on top of that.

I adhered the frames I created to some acetate and cut around the circles to create my shaker windows.

Using my large Tonic non-stick scissors, I cut strips of foam tape for the windows

I peeled the backing off then just wrapped it around the back of my circle windows.  I placed the windows on top of the sequin filled circles to create the shakers.

I made another circle from the smallest Cross Stitched circle to add to the front.  I wanted to put part of a sentiment on it so I cut the second smallest circle from the Never Ending Circles die set in white.  I adhered it over the top of the larger circle with foam tape after stamping it with the "Yay!" from Hero Arts' Birthday Messages stamp set.  It fit perfectly so you could still see the cross stitching from the main circle.  That set really comes in handy.  There are so many sizes of circles!

I added another sentiment from the same stamp set to the bottom right corner of the card and assembled my circles overlapping on the front.

AAA Cards Challenge: Inspired By A Film

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm joining in on a super fun and unique challenge I found over at AAA Cards.  We have to create as CAS card inspired by a movie.  I thought this was such a fun idea, I wanted to challenge myself.  Can you guess which movie inspired my card?

 

IMG_6885

I just watched the movie, Office Space on cable over the weekend and I thought this would be the perfect inspiration for my project!  From poor Milton never catching a break, pieces of "flair" and the dreaded meeting with "the Bobs", this movie is so relate-able if you've ever worked in an office setting.  ---Just a note, this is a darker comedy, so there are some "over the top" sequences.  Really well done, though and a great one for watching if you're just looking to laugh and relax on a lazy weekend.  

IMG_6885

One of the most iconic characters is VP and boss, Bill Lumburg.  He has some hilarious lines.  I felt like the big arrow pointing to this saying would be something "Lumburg" would put on a memo to staff.  

IMG_6890

Be sure to check out this challenge over at AAA Cards if you're looking for something different.  Thanks so much for joining me today!
