When I saw that there was a gnome stamp in one of the collections I was in love! I decided to create my card using a grid pattern so I could use several of the patterns. You can watch my full process video HERE.
I used the gnome and the Happy Fall sentiment from the stamp set and then colored them in. I trimmed the gnome piece into a tag for the focal point of my card.
I used a red cardstock card base and then a white cardstock mat behind my pattern paper rectangles. I trimmed each pattern paper down to 1 7/8 by 2 1/2 inches. And then just adhered them in a grid.
I finished off the card with some tan and white twine and tan enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by to see me card today! Be sure to check back here each day this week for more sneak peeks! The full kit reveal will be next Saturday along with the blog hop.
I started with a little diaper fold type pocket. I took the 6×6 piece of paper and folded it in half diagonally. Then I folded the top tip down to the center fold. I folded both of the side tips in towards the middle and then adhered my top flap down over the top of them using some Art Glitter Glue.
The next pocket I made is a double pocket. You can follow the process video for scoring and folding this double pocket. Starting with another 6×6 sheet, I again folded it in half diagonally. I scored at 1/2 inch on either side of that center fold line. I turned my paper a quarter of a turn and scored at 2 3/4 inches in on both sides. I folded up all of my score lines to create the holder. I punched a hole at the top of the holder and used some ribbon and bakers twine to hold it all together.
These little pockets will hold tea bags or Ghiradelli chocolate squares. They would make great little stocking stuffers or coworker treats for the holidays!
Thanks for checking out my project today! I hope you enjoyed this treat holder idea and the cute Christmas Treats paper collection!
Hello everyone! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today with a fun little bubble gum treat holder project!
I wanted to create a treat holder for the bubble gum pack that only used 1 sheet of 6×6 paper. I chose to use the Bubbles Galore collection #4 from the August Flavor of the Month Kit. To get a better idea of how to make this, you can watch the full process video HERE.
Start with your 6×6 piece of patterned paper and trim it at 4 inches. You will now have one piece that is 4×6 inches and one that is 2×6 inches. Trim the 2×6 inch piece down to 2×4.5 inches.
Take the 4×6 inch piece and score it at 2 3/4 inches and again at 3 1/4 inches. This creates a little folder that will be the outside of our treat holder.
For the 2×4.5 inch piece, you’ll need to score from side to side at 1/2, 1, 3 1/2 and 4 inches. Then turn the piece and score up from the bottom at 1/2 and 1 inch. You’ll have a set of 4 squares at each of the bottom corners. Trim this off to allow the pocket to fold up cleaner.
Now you can adhere your pocket to the inside of the folder! I used some Art Glitter Glue for this. Then you can embellish the outside. I added some white ribbon similar to what originally came in my August kit to hold the folder closed. Then I finished it off with some ephemera from the Bubbles Galore collection.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this fun little project and found a new way to use the fun bubble papers in this month’s kit!
For my first project, I made a card using the watermelon treat paper.
I started off with a spearmint green card base. I added a mat of white cardstock and then the polka dot side of the patterned paper. I matted my strip of the watermelon pattern with white cardstock as well to help it pop. I added my sentiment along with some Blushing Red Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish off the card.
I cut 2 patterned paper pieces to 3 by 4.5 inches. I adhered these to the front and back covers of the comp book. I used part of the remaining strip I had to back my sentiment/embellishment on the front of the notebook. I used my last scrap piece to decorate the inside of the front cover.
For my last two projects, I chose this cute rainbow popsicle pattern. I started with the nail file holder and cut this patterned piece down to 3.5 by 6 inches. Then I scored it at 1 inch, 1 1/4 inches, 2 1/4 inches and 3 1/2 inches. I put the box together, added my nail file and then embellished with a tag punched from a scrap of the patterned paper and a sticker from a previous kit.
And for my final little project, I made a mini post it note holder. I cut down the remaining piece of the pattern paper to 2 1/4 by 5 inches. Then I scored at 1 1/8 inches, 1 1/2 inches, 3 1/8 inches and 3 1/2 inches. I glued in my Dollar Tree mini post it note pad. I added a small piece of adhesive velcro to help my holder to stay closed. Then I finished if off with another tag cut from scraps and popsicle sticker.
Thanks for stopping back by today! I hope you enjoyed these projects! They were so fun and quick and I know some young girls who will love them!
Hello! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today and I am revisiting the September 2018 Flavor of the Month card kit. I’m focusing on Fall projects this month, so I decided to pull this cute little kit out and have some fun. You can see the full project share video HERE.
I combined collections 2 and 3 to make a cute little Fall themed mini scrapbook album.
I used some 5 1/2 inch square Kraft envelopes to create my album base. I used the patterned papers, cardstocks, stamps and ephemera from the collections to decorate up the album.
From the Let’s Talk About Bees collection, I made 5 cards, 3 of which used the super cute Bumblebee Marci stamp set. I decorated up a mini composition notebook using patterned paper and a piece of ephemera. I also made a post it note pad holder, using the cute beehive paper and ephemera. And, lastly, I was able to make a little tag using up the scraps from this collection.
I loved this Amber Moon collection from Prima! It’s so pretty! I made 7 cards and a couple of lunch box cards to use up the scraps.
I had one piece of scarecrow ephemera left and since it had sunflowers on it (sunflowers are my favorite), I made a little decor piece using a small wooden block I had on hand. I managed to pool scraps from all the collections together to get one more full size card and one more lunch box note.
Thanks for stopping by today! I had a lot of fun with this collection and the paper was all so pretty! I hope you can find some inspiration to use up an older kit in your stash as well! Have a crafty day!
I used 2 strips of the blue polka dot paper and matched them up in the middle to create a stripe across the front of my card. I stamped one of the pineapples from the stamp set and then used the water color paints from the Banana Split level add-on to give them some color. I did use one small piece of the yellow patterned paper from the In the Tropics, Collection 4 to stamp my sentiment on in the middle. To finish this card off, I added some Dandelion Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops in the top left and bottom right corners.
For my second card, I decided to use the scraps I had left from my slimline card.
I pieced the scraps together into a grid pattern. I used another scrap of that yellow patterned paper to stamp my sentiment and added a pineapple that I stamped and colored. As a finishing touch on this card, I added some 1/2 inch circles from the yellow patterned paper to bring in more pops of yellow.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying your July card kit as well!
Hello! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today and I’m sharing the first sneak peek of the July 2020 Flavor of the Month kit, In the Tropics! For those of us who haven’t been able to get away for a true vacation recently, this definitely gives you those tropical vacation vibes!!🌴
I used Collection #1 (Tropical Vibes) for my card and the Mojo Monday Sketch #300 that is included on this month’s sketch sheet. I stamped the toucan onto white card stock and used the watercolor paint set that came with the Banana Split level kit to give her some color. While she was drying, I built the rest of my card.
I used three different patterns from the collection and backed them all on black cardstock to help break up the patterns. I also stamped the hibiscus flower and painted it. I used the “Toucan do anything” sentiment (how cute is that saying???) and added it onto the card with the flower. I also ended up adding a flower sequin to cover up a paint smudge near her head.🤦🏻♀️
This card was super fun to make! You can watch my full process video HERE. I hope it gives you some inspiration for your kit this month and I hope it brings you some relaxing and tropical vibes. 😎 And, if you like what you see, be sure to sign up for the kit subscription now because these kits have been selling out fast!

Hello everyone, it’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today and I have made a cute tag for my 2020 journal using the Let’s Hang Out stamp set from Collection 2 of the June 2020 kit. You can see the full process for this tag in my video HERE.
I have a journal that I’ve been documenting things that we’ve experienced over the last few crazy months and when I saw the sentiment in this stamp set, I knew I needed to add it to my journal!
I started by stamping the monkeys and monkey bars on some white cardstock. I used the stencil in the kit and some Mowed Lawn distress ink to create the grass. I used a finger blade to cut the middles out between a few of the monkey bars and then did some basic coloring on the monkey bars and the monkeys themselves.
I used the green leaf ribbon that came in the kit to weave through the openings I made between the monkey bars and then draped it down the side of the bars as well. I used a scrap of paper from the On the Playground collection for my tag base because I liked how the light blue looked a little like the sky in the background. I stamped my sentiment at the top of the tag and added angles on the top corners to give it that tag shape. I used the rest of the leaf ribbon at the top of my tag to finish it off. I think it’s such a fun element to add to my journal!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this little project!
Hello everyone! It’s Beth here today with 4 more cards from the Pond Life collection from the June 2020 Flavor of the Month Kit! This kit is sold out, but the Pond Life paper collection is sold individually. You can see my full process video as well as links to all of the products I used HERE.
For my first card, I wanted to use the cute frog patterned scrap I had left as a focal point (how cute is that paper??). So I took the piece of the green polka dot pattern that I had left and offset it to the left on the front of my white cardbase. I added the cattail pattern scrap and the frog pattern scrap off to the right. I used the “you are toadally awesome” sentiment (my favorite) from the Pond Life stamp set on white cardstock, punched it out with a circle punch and then backed it with a brown cardstock scalloped circle. I ended up punching some small circles out of brown cardstock to act as brown enamel dots to finish off the card.
I used some of the remaining scraps I had to piece together this card front. I decided to leave a little white boarder around each of the pieces, so I cut them just shy of the measurements listed on this sketch. I like how the white separates the busier patterns. I I used the piece of the sailboat paper I had left as my focal point in the center of the card and backed it with white. I added my sentiment piece with the sailboat and “hope you are doing well” sentiment from the stamp set. Then I finished off this card with some of the yellow daisy flowers and peach enamel dots!
I used the last large piece of patterned paper I had, the striped piece, as my card mat on a turquoise cardbase. I backed the honeycomb strip on white cardstock to help separate it from the busy stripe behind it. Then I stamped the frog onto white card stock and did some basic coloring with my YG03 Copic marker. I stamped another sentiment from the stamp set, “you are full of life”. I backed my froggy on some turqouise cardstock. I used that same color for the strip at the bottom and then a fishtail banner at the top. I also added the last of the peach enamel dots.
I decided I had enough scraps to make one more card! So, I used the Operation Write Home sketch #154 (my favorite sketch for using up scraps!). I had 3 patterned scraps that were big enough to make 1.5 inch squares for the tiles and then I used a scrap of the green cardstock for my fourth piece. I stamped the little frog on that piece and I used the “you are toadally awesome” sentiment again. I backed my tiles on white cardstock and then added it to the green cardbase. I used a scrap strip of that striped pattern to go across the bottom and accented it with my sentiment circle.
The remaining scraps I had, I used on the insides of the cards. And that finished off this collection!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed these cards and found some more ideas to use with your kit.
I used the SFL Sketch Challenge #6 card sketch from the sketch sheet to create my card. You can see the full process and all the products I used for this card in my video HERE.
