Cards Made Easy!

Hello, today I've been playing with some new pieces from We R Memory Keepers, Albums Made Easy sets.  In particular I've been playing with the die-cuts and journaling cards from the Studio Gold set by Teresa Collins and the Sheer Metalic Vellum set.  I love these sets, not only are they great for creating fast and cute mini albums but they can be used for cards and other projects.  So check out these cute cards I made with these awesome sets.  


Each set comes with cards large cards that are 4" x 4" and 2" x 2".


For this first card I trimmed a piece of cardstock that was 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", score on the length at 4 1/4" and fold in half to create a card base that is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  Then I used the We R Memory Keepers corner chomper to round the corners using the 1/4" size.


On the inside of the card I used a mini distress ink pad to distress the edges of the card.


Now the card Shine's like a star.


For the mini card I used this cute 2" x 2" card with a heart shape cut out of the center.  I added some stickles to accent the heart and the outer edge.


Same process for this mini card base just start with a cardstock trimmed to 2 1/4" x 4 1/2", score and fold in half.  


I used pop up adhesive to layer the open heart over a decorative vellum square from the sheer metalic set.  


These also make a great simple tag.  I trimmed a square of cardstock to 2 1/4" x 2 1/4", distressed the edges and attached a die-cut card that says thank you, perfect for attaching to a small thank you gift.

Dream Medallion Wall Hanging

Did you hear the news? Craft Warehouse had announced their 2014 Design Team. I'm excited to be returning as a member of their core team, they are a great company to design for. You can check out the entire team here

Today I want to share my latest project, a wall hanging made of accordion fold medallions using fun patterned paper and some awesome chipboard letters.


I love these chipboard letters because of their size and how versatile they are.  They are great for a decor piece like this or for banners.  


For details on how I finished the letters and how I made all those medallions with some fun paper from Echo Park, check out my post on the Craft Warehouse blog with a step by step tutorial, here.

Floral Doily Card

It's August, welcome to my favorite month! Though in Oregon we tend to get a little rain mid month in August, I still love this part of summer. Today I wanted to share with you this quick and simple card I made with an acrylic card base, a pretty die cut and a flower.


The acrylic base was already scalloped and it turns out that this floral doily punch works perfectly with it.  Simple, yet elegant.  A great card for any occasion or no occasion at all.

For more details on how to create this card, check out my post here, on the ScraPerfect blog.

Father's Day Cards!

Happy June everyone, can't believe this year is already almost half way over. And soon Father's Day will be here so I wanted to share with you a few cards I made using some fun laser cut tools to make some awesome and unique Father's Day Cards.


All these cards feature the mini laser cut wood tool set from Unique Laser Designs.  Aren't they fun!


On this card I used metal brads that look like screws, I've had them forever and finally had the perfect project to use them on.


I cut the tool belt from a piece of canvas and distressed it with some Tim Holtz distress ink.   I just winged it when I cut it, I didn't measure anything on this one.


And finally here's a close up of the tool box, this one is my favorite.  I searched for a pattern to make a tool box shaped card so I had to create my own from scratch.  I think it turned out pretty well.


A peak at the inside shows a little shelf I made for the inside that holds all the little tools.



Thanks for looking and Happy Father's Day!

You Are A Star Card

Hey Everyone, sorry for being missing in action for a bit but I'm coming back from a much needed blogging vacation. But I'm back and have some great new projects to share with you this month. My latest project is a simple card that is quick, easy and versatile.


To make this card I used two pieces of patterned paper, stickers and 5 small laser cut stars.  I left the stars unfinished for this first take, I think they are nice just the way they are. And if you swap out the color of the paper for a blue or green, you'd have a nice simple masculine card.


Or you could add a little bling to the stars by adding stickles or glitter to them to make them little more feminine.  Either way it's a great simple card that could be used for a variety of occasions.
