Looking Glass Gift Cards

Hi there.

Today I have a set of gift cards I made using Kaisercraft's Looking Glass Collection....

I made 6 - 3x4" cards and envelopes and made a matching Gift Bag to put them in.  I used the We R Memory Keepers envelope maker and the Gift Bag Punch Board.
I think these punch boards are fantastic and I love using them.

I added some trinkets, from Papervine, tied with a bit of Bakers twine to the front of each card.  I just stamped the sentiment "for you" for each card.  This is a great way to use up some leftover patterned paper.


Happy Creating!

Christmas Exploding Box

Hi all - Liz has an annual Christmas Day on a Saturday at the beginning of December at the Artfull Crafts shop, so I thought I would share some of the crafty goodness from that day.

My contribution was to make a bag using the new Gift bag punch board from W R Memory Keepers, this is it here....

This is the large bag from a 6x12" piece of paper - we used Kaisercraft's  Christmas Carol .
I used mine to put a gift card in along with a couple of chocolate bars!

Below are examples of the 3 sizes you can make...

from left to right the large, medium and small. You can vary the height depending on the size of your paper.

I also have to show you the Exploding Christmas Box we made with fellow DT member -Robbi. I was so excited to make this!!  Here it is as the box.....

 And this is it having taken the lid off to explode!!!!!

I finished mine the next day and then had to make another......

I made this one for my daughter for Christmas and put a gift card in one of the pockets. So Thanks Robbi for a great idea!

Christmas PL Pages

Hi there.
I have a couple of project life style pages to show you today using Kaisercraft's Santa's List collection......

 This way of scrapbooking is so easy and quick, the Collectables make embellishing a breeze and I love to use my washi tape and metal trinkets from Papervine.
 This page used the BH pocket page E - it has 4 6x6 squares. Just like doing mini layouts!

I am also showing you  some Christmas step cards I made using Kaisercraft's Christmas Carol Collection....

I really like making these cards and they stand up so nicely for display!

Looking Glass Layout and Cards

Hi there -Here is a layout and a couple of cards I have made using Kaisercraft's The Looking Glass Collection.

 The arrows I have punched out of the  patterned paper pad with a corner punch.  The Collectables are great for adding embellishments. I have also used a favourite tool (one of Heidi Swapp's as well!)- the Epiphany Punch tool, to create the 2 circles on the bottom right hand corner.

For this card I have used the leftover punched corners. Some Papervine trinkets and Bakers twine.

This card carries on the theme of putting 3 rectangles in a row and backed on black card - love this colour blocking and this paper is great to use !

My Artfull Crafts DT Work

Hi there - over the next few days I will showcase what I have been up to with my DT work for Artfull Crafts. Apologies if you have already seen it but I want a record here as well!

Some cards I have made using Kaisercraft's Gingerbread Collection....

I am usually a traditional Christmas colour person of red and green - but I really love this teal green colour in these papers.  For the first card I have made a rosette with the Tim Holtz die out of white card and before I folded it I added some red washi tape from Papervine and then added a rhinestone sparkler to the centre. I love making fishtail banners so have used them on all 3 cards - great for showing off the patterned papers.

For these 2 cards I have used this lovely Angel - she is a digi stamp from LaLa Land Crafts. I just printed her off onto white card and coloured her in with my Copics. The Merry Christmas sentiments are from the Collectables.

Lady Rose Wedding Layouts

Hi there!
 I have  a couple of Layouts using the lovely Lady Rose Collection from Kaisercraft up on the Artfull Crafts Blog today - thought I would share them here as well.

For this Layout I have used the latest sketch from Creative Scrappers.....

 I have just used  one photo and have hidden the journalling behind it. The Lady Rose papers I have used are all from the Paper pad so the patterns are smaller than the 12x12 papers, but I rather like that when I use a lot of patterned papers together.
I have used my Epiphany Punch to make the round button and added some pearl flourishes for some bling!

For this layout I just put the patterned papers randomly behind the photo for a more informal look.
I cut out the title using my Silhouette Cameo.
That's my daughter - Leanne- on the left! The 'girls ' looked absolutely gorgeous! I loved how  the dresses were different - 2 of each style and colour.

Finally here is a card I have made based on the above sketch using some of the leftovers! I think a sketch is great if you can use it for both a layout and a card - I will definitely keep this one to use again.

Happy Creating!

Tea Party Card Set

Hi there
Today I have a set of 4 cards in a box to show you......

Here are the 4 cards...

All have the sentiment 'for you' on them.
Here is the box to keep them in....

I have cut out the box using a SVG file from A Paper Hut on my Silhouette Cameo. This was so easy to put together and I could just resize it so my 4x4 cards would fit it perfectly!
I love to make card sets to give as gifts - I wonder who will get this??

Gorgeous day here so I am off out into the garden to tackle the weeds! Did you know weeds are only unwanted plants!
