Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up on the Scrapping for Less Blog today with two projects I made with products from Collection 4 of the soon to be released Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
First up I made a checkbook cover. I like to be able to customize my stuff so I thought this was a fun idea. You can get the clear checkbook covers on Amazon HERE.
Next I covered a notepad I had purchased at Dollar Tree. You can purchase the notepads HERE. The notepads measure 4″ x 6″.
If you’d like to make sure you reserve one of these kits in your name (last month they sold out right away) then you’ll want to sign up for a monthly subscription (plus it saves you extra money over the one time purchase price). This kit is absolutely adorable! I am so in love with the papers and stamp sets in this kit.

I applied some beautiful Glitter Glaze from Brutus Monroe over the Coffee Dot stencil by Echo Park. I think the Nuvo Frostbite Glacier Paste would give a similar look and it’s in the shop here —> Nuvo Frostbite Glacier Paste. So much glittery goodness!! I wish the pictures did it justice!
I trimmed the Insulation Pink card stock to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″ and adhered a Scalloped Stitched Rectangle frame by Gina Marie Designs that I die cut from white card stock. If you don’t have a scalloped stitched rectangle frame in your stash, there’s one in the shop here that is just slightly smaller than the one I used —> Sunny Studio Frilly Frames Hexagon Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die… and it has that cool hexagon too! I stamped the ‘Live Your Best Life!’ sentiment from the Your Best Life Collection in the April 2020 City Streets and Country Roads card kit with Memento Tuxedo black ink and die cut it with a banner die. I trimmed it down and popped it up on the card.
To finish off the card, I added three cute flower sequins to the body of the glitter butterfly… it is so enchanting in person!!! Truly beautiful combined with the glitter butterfly!
Now, remember I die cut a whole bunch of these glitter butterflies… let me tell you there was glitter everywhere!!! But a handy tip for cleaning that up is using Swiffer Sweeper dry cloths. I was able to clean up everything with just one cloth… they are super sturdy and hold a lot of glitter!
For my second card, I wanted to make a slimline card that looked like the butterflies were flying in the clouds. I made a little video showing the ink blending and assembly of the card. You can check that out here…
I hope that you’ve enjoyed the cards I shared today! Be sure to check out all the fabulous items available in the A La Carte section of the shop! You can restock those consumables you’ve used up in the kit or find some other must have goodies to help enhance your card kit creations!
Hello! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde joining you today with some more inspiration from April’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I am in awe of just how much I was able to get out of this collection!
I typically only make cards but this time I wanted to branch out and do a little something different…bookmarks! As a kid and even into adulthood I love bookmarks although I don’t have as much of a need for them with my Kindle and Kindle App on my phone but the need is still there (mostly to save my place in a book of card sketches!).
This was the last thing I created from this collection because I was down to scraps. As I was looking at the pieces I had left and thought about how to use them I spotted the Lawn Fawn die and knew this would be perfect.
There are quite a few elements here from a few different stamp sets. All the images are from Sunny Studio Stamps. The cowgirl and cowboy of course are from April’s kit. The cow peeking his head out and the horse are from Barnyard Buddies and were the perfect additions to this card. I wanted the background papers to really pop which is why I chose black as the cover and finally I embossed the sentiments with white embossing powder.
Here are the bookmarks! The dies are from MFT and I have had them for over a year, this was the first time I used them. They came out so cute that I am itching to make more.
I could NOT get enough of the paper from this collection! (I immediately got my hand on a full paper pad because so many ideas hit me when I saw it.)
The card on the left gave me a chance to do something new to me. The large doily type circle was in my scrap folder (thank you past self) but needed something more. I was crafting with my gal pals virtually (like we do now) and someone said it needs ribbon, well I had twine so I “sewed” it through the holes and voila!
April’s Flavor of the Month card kit is sold out but do not be discouraged! We are about to enter a week of sneak peeks for May’s Flavor of the Month kit and you don’t want to miss it!!! Keep in mind if you want to ensure that you will get your own kit sign up for a subscription. If you want to wait and see what is coming I totally get that just make sure to be quick about buying your one time kit when it releases which will be May 30th at midnight EST. (Which most of us think of being Friday night, I do anyway.)
Thank you for taking a gander at my creations from the Howdy Partner collection! I’m much obliged.
Hello! It’s Beth today from Bourbon Creek Crafts and I’m sharing a simple but beautiful Z-fold card I made using paper from the Bloom Wildly collection (which has become one of my favorite collections!). You can watch the full process in my video HERE.
To start, I cut a normal A2 size white card base (8.5 by 5.5 inches). I folded the card base in half and then took that top half of the card and folded it in half backwards towards the center.
Next, I added my patterned paper to my card base. For the inside of the card, I used the small peach floral pattern from the Bloom Wildly collection from SFL and cut it to be 4 1/8 by 5 3/8 inches. I also cut two pieces of patterned paper for the z-fold panels on the card. I used the floral woodgrain pattern also from the Bloom Wildly Collection and then the brown suede pattern from the Country Roads collection. I cut both of these pieces to be 2 by 5 3/8 inches.
I used a stitched rounded rectangle die to create two cardstock layers, one out of a seafoam green and a larger one in white. I also used the Hello die from Catherine Pooler Designs to cut my sentiment out of the green cardstock. I layered these on that front fold section. I also adhered a piece of white card stock on the inside of my card base that was 3 3/4 by 5 inches. This is the area where I can write my message. Then I finished the card off with some SFL peach sequins.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my Hello card!
Hey there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a couple sweet CAS cards using the fabulous City Streets and Country Roads card kit and stencils!! I layered a shape stencil with the city skyline portion of the stencil included in the Banana Split subscription to create these fun cards.
My first card was created using the Scalloped Circle Masquerade stencil from Heffy Doodle. I started by blending Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the top portion of the scalloped circle. I then blended some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink on the bottom portion. Then I placed the city skyline stencil over top of the scalloped circle stencil and secured it with some purple tape. I also covered the words underneath the skyline on the stencil with some purple tape. I then blended some Black Soot Distress Oxide ink lightly over the stencil for my base color and using a post it note I added some dimension to the buildings blending from the bottom right edge and up.
I stamped the sentiment from the Your Best Life stamp set from Collection Two of the card kit with Memento Tuxedo black ink. And then I stamped the girl from the same stamp set onto a scrap of white card stock. If you remember my card from the reveal a couple of weeks ago, I’ve used a very similar color combo on this girl. And I’ll have a video of my coloring to share with you tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a list of the Copic markers that I used to color this image:
And I did the same layered stencils technique to make my second card. This time I used the super girl stamp from the Super Host stamp set in Collection One along with a star stencil that I created myself by die cutting a piece of card stock with a star die.
I used the following Copic markers to color up this sweet super girl:
Here’s a video showing the Layered Stencils technique I used for these adorable CAS cards!
I sure hope you’ve enjoyed the cards I’ve shared today! The April 2020 card kit is sold out but you can subscribe now so you don’t miss out on the May 2020 card kit… and let me just tell you, you DO NOT want to miss this next kit!!! It’s SO adorable… just saying!!
I realize that we have all been grounded as of late but that hasn’t stopped me from dreaming. I have a few cards here that I created using the Best Life collection from April’s Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Come along with me for a quick rundown of my cards.
If you’ve seen the stamp set you’ll notice someone is missing, for this card I just wanted the scooter so after coloring it, I cut it out went around the edges with a memento marker and adhered it in the oval.
This card came together because I didn’t want to cover up too much of the background paper. I love all the mail images and was having a hard time choosing just one square that I wanted to use. In this collection photo corners were one of the embellishments and every time I see them I see arrows so after trimming off the edges I thought they made pretty convincing arrows.
I pulled in a stamp set from my stash that I thought would be perfect to send to my friend living over seas.
If you’ve had a chance to do the challenge on the SFL Show and Share group on FaceBook this may look familiar. I used the sketch challenge for this card.
I loosely followed the same sketch for this one but had some leftover pieces that I wanted to use. Once I put the sentiment on the tag it looked a little lonely all by itself so I cut out a few of the icons and added them to the tag.
Thanks so much for joining me today and taking a look at what I came up with using this collection from our April Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Don’t forget to sign up for a subscription if you want to be sure to get your hands on May’s kit. April’s sold out!
