Hello Everyone! I’m excited to share 2 new SFL Paper Pads! I couldn’t decide which one to share so I chose both!
My first card I used the Cool Treats pattern paper pad. I loved the watermelon Popsicle – a perfect treat for this time of the year. I love how the other patterns coordinate nicely and yet the focus is still those watermelons!!
Hello Everyone! Today I am making a chocolate treat sleeves using the pattern paper “Tropical Fruit” from Collection 3 by SFL! First thing I needed to do was trim down the pattern paper to 1″ x 3″ pieces. I then wrap the pieces of paper around each chocolate. I don’t recommend liquid glue unless you want to hold them while they dry. Once all of my chocolates are covered with the pattern paper, I trimmed down some card stock to 2″ x 6 1/4″ to put into the cellophane bag. It gives some stability for your treat sleeve. For extra support, you could score each side at 1/8″ on each (long) side so there is a “wall” on each side. The clear, cellophane bags I am using I purchased at a local big chain craft store. (They are advertised as covered pretzel bags.)
Once my treat sleeves are done, I need a tag for each. I used the smallest tag die I had available to make my tags. I die cut a tag from 110lb white card stock and then die cut some pattern paper. I adhered the pattern paper onto the white tag “base” and then used the bottom half of the tag to trim some more pattern paper to put on the bottom of the tag. I thought it would look fun to have 2 patterns. To separate the patterns, I added a strip of white card stock. This was also a great place to add our “to” and “from”.
I hope you enjoyed this fun, papercrafting project. I love to make these chocolate treats. They are a fun way to use pattern paper scraps and they make great little treats for family, friends and co-workers without spending a lot of money.
I’m loving this collection!!! The Tropic Vibes paper is absolutely gorgeous. Today I am using 3 different patterns to create my card. I used a scrap piece I cut in half for the far right and left pieces. The middle piece was a larger scrap that I wanted to use up as well. The flamingo sits on the ombre pattern paper that was die cut using the mod die from the banana split pack in the kit. My featured image is from the Tropic Vibes Ephemera.
The inside of the card I used the Happy Birthday sentiment and flamingo image from the Tropic Vibe stamp set. I used RV14 and RV10 to add some pink to the flamingo.
Thank You for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy and get inspired!
Happy Monday Crafty Friends! I’m LOVING the Tropic Vibes pattern paper and Tropical Vibes ephemera from Collection 1! The July 2020 Flavor of the Month Card Kit pops with color. Today I made 2 cards and the hardest part was choosing which ephemera pieces I wanted to use!
Card one is all about showing off the pattern paper and the ephemera. I backed the pattern paper with black card stock from my stash and added the ephemera with foam adhesive. I also use the 3 small and 3 medium enamel dots from the kit. The inside is stamped with the Flamingo image from the stamp set and the Happy Birthday sentiment. I outlined the flamingo with a light pink marker for a pop of color.
Card 2 I used the flower image from the stamp set to create a backgroud for the floral/pineapple ephemera. I stamped it out with a clear sticky ink and used clear embossing powder. Once that was heat set I added the “Shocking Pink” Card stock behind it , popped up my ephemera piece and add the entire panel to my card base created with Limeade card stock. On the inside I added the Happy Birthday sentiment again and the single pineapple ephemera piece!
Thanks So Much for stopping by!

Happy Monday! I’m sharing a sneak peek from the July 2020 SFL Flavor of the Month card kit. Collection 4 has such bright pattern papers that help show off the solid palm tree image found in the stamp set.
I trimmed down the Black Licorice card stock from the kit to create my card base. I also trimmed the Shocking Pink card stock for my card panel. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the orange and green pattern paper. I decided to stamp the image and sentiment onto the green pattern paper and adhere it over the orange pattern paper so they are going in opposite directions. I then added the 3 paper flowers from Collection 4 and used Blushing Red Nuvo Crystal Drops from the June 2020 card kit to the center of the flowers. Of course, I wanted to add a little sparkle so I grabbed some Diamond Stickles and added a little to the bottom of the palm tree image.
Thanks So Much for stopping by today and check back each day for more Sneak Peeks! The full kit reveal is on Saturday, July 25 at 12:00 a.m.
Hello Everyone! How sassy are these little pool babies? Such cute images from SFL’s newest stamp set “Summer Floaties”. I’m also using the New “Summer Floaties” Paper pad!
I stamped the images using a Copic friendly ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used a white gel pen to add a little highlight and glossy accents on the sunglasses of each of our pool babies.
I created my front panel by choosing the least busy “pool” pattern paper. I trimmed that paper to 5.5 x 4.25 inches. I used a circle die to cut 2 circles. Then then grabbed my card base – I chose to use 100 lb card stock in the color Sno Cone and adhered my other 2 pieces of pattern paper directly to the card base with tape runner. once those pieces were down, I added foam adhesive to the main panel and adhered that in alignment with my card base.
Once that is all together, I added my images and finished by adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops in the color Morning Dew.

Slimline cards are the “in” thing right now and I thought I would jump on in and make a slimline shaker card! I am using ingredients from Collection 4 from the SFL Flavor of the Month June 2020 Card Kit. This kit has sold out, but I will link items that are available to be purchased separately throughout the blog post.
To begin my card, I cut a frame using this Slimeline Marquee die from “Orange Fizz” cardstock. I then die cut 3 pieces of pattern paper from the “On the Playground” paper from Collection 4 for the windows. I then glued a piece of acetate to my frame and put that aside to dry.
I colored the slide image with Copic Markers (R27, R59, YG17, G28) then fussy cut the image. I put that aside and put my pattern paper pieces to my card base. For my card base I used “Blu Raspberry” cardstock. I used sequins from the collection for my shaker bits.
Once I carefully add my frame to my card base I add my slide and the enamel dots also from the collection.
Hello Everyone! I am LOVING this ephemera from Collection 1. Today I made 3 cards where the ephemera is the main focus – mainly!
This card is similar to the card I made during the reveal. The 2 yellow pieces of pattern paper are left from the triangular piece I cut for Card 1 in my reveal post. I added this fun stripe paper underneath and add red card stock between the patterns so they each pop. I then grabbed this fun “Picnic Time” ephemera piece to add in my triangular space. I then finished the card with Nuvo Crystal Drops in the color “Blushing Red”, which is from the Banana Split portion of the card kit.
I personally LOVE watermelon and this ant on his watermelon slice cracks me up! For this card I added my watermelon scrap in the center and popped up on foam adhesive the 2 watermelon pieces from the ephemera.
This little ant needed somewhere to take his picnic so I created this scene with the stencil from the Banana Split portion of the card kit. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for my clouds and Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for the grass. I added a scrap of pattern paper for my ant to stand on and popped him up on foam adhesive.

Happy Monday! It’s Sneak Peek week and today I am sharing a card I made using Collection 2. I was happy to see more of the Green Leaf Ribbon in this collection. I think it’s fun and adds great texture to your project.
I stamped the image with Copic friendly ink and then the sentiment inside the monkey bars. I colored the images and matted with brown card stock from the card kit. I used a silver gel pen (not included) to add a little extra to the area where the monkey bars would go together. I finished the card using 3 enamel dots from the collection.
Thank you for checking out Monday’s sneak peek and stop by each day to see more!
