Let’s take a trip to the Apple Orchard or maybe you want to go to the Pumpkin Patch!
A little story about pumpkin patches…I started scrapbooking when our first grandchild was born. And boy did I love documenting everything about his growth. When he was 3 I wanted to take him to a pumpkin patch for the sole purpose of being able to do a photo shoot there and as a result create a scrapbook page.
So whether you scrapbook or make cards, make sure you enjoy the fall weather and do something fun!
Our Guest and Design Team has some fabulous project to share with the September kit “Orchards and Patches.”
Thanks for hopping along with us! Be sure to stop back here after you’re done hopping to enter into the Rafflecopter Drawing. Be on the look out for the “Secret Phrase”. It’ll give you 5 extra bonus entries!!
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!
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!
I made 5 cards. I used the SFL Sketch #7, the slimline card sketch to make my first 2 cards.
I embellished the first card with the Tropic Vibes ephemera and the 2nd with the toucan from the Tropic Vibes stamp set. Both sentiments were from this stamp set as well.
I also used the Scrapping for Less Flavor of the Month Card Sketch:
I changed my design from the sketch just a little bit by using less strips and making them thinner. I also used the Scrapping for Less Mod Die set that came in the Banana Split level of the kit. This card turned out to be my favorite!!
I switched to some non-card projects. I made 2 nail file/emory board holders. These would be cute gifts or craft show items! This idea came from the Papered Chef.
I cut the patterned paper to 3.5×6 inches. Then I scored them at 1 inch, 1.25 inches, 2.25 inches and 2.5 inches. Once you fold up the score lines, you just glue the 2 flaps together. Then pinch the bottom ends together and glue.
I embellished both holders with some of the cute flamingo ephemera from the collection. The emory boards are from Amazon.
The next little projects I made were some mini post it note holders:
This design is from Inspired by Gram. For these, I cut my patterned paper to 2 1/4 x 5 inches. I scored them at 1 1/8 inches, 1 1/2 inches, 3 1/8 inches and 3 1/2 inches. Once you get them folded up, you can add your mini post it note pads (unfortunately, I didn’t realize I was out of them before making these). Once I add the post it note pad to the inside, I would add some small adhesive velcro strips to the the flaps to keep them closed.
I embellished the pads with the small flowers and sentiment from the Tropic Vibes stamp set.
After this, I was working with scraps on some final cards. I used a flamingo that I had stamped and watercolored in a previous session. I matted my pattern papers with black cardstock from my stash and put them directly onto my white cardbase. I embellished around the layout with some Blushing Red Nuvo Drops.
And here is my final card:
I decided to use the pineapple stencil that came in the Banana Split collection to create a background on my cardbase. I used Scattered Straw Distress Ink to color the body of the pineapples and Mowed Lawn to color the tops. I pieced together some of the scraps I had left and layered a piece of pineapple ephemera and sentiment on top.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my projects today! I hope you got some inspiration! I had so much fun with these!
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, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a couple of projects using Collection Three “Weather Together” from the new May Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
First I used the stamp set to make this cute pair of earrings from shrink plastic. I stamped the rainbow image with StazOn ink and colored them in with my Arteza Alcohol Markers. I adhered jewelry findings and voila! A cute pair of earrings.
Next I used some of the pattern papers to make three gift card holders. These are supper easy to make. I got the pattern from Angie over at Chicnscratch. I’m including the pattern below.
I ordered the bulldog clips from Amazon. The sentiment is from a Create A Smile stamp set from my stash.
I plan to make a bunch of these for the holidays. You could use them as mini envelopes also by just tucking in a small card.
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with more inspiration using Collection One called Big Love from the new May Flavor of the Month Card Kit. The theme this month is “Let’s Encourage One Another”.
There are less than a handful of the Banana Split levels left. If you want to get your hands on one before they’re gone CLICK HERE. You can also pick up some extra coordinating Cardstock HERE.
Today I did not make any cards. I like to make lots of different types of projects.
First I have a mini notebook I recovered with the pattern paper.
Next I made two gift tags with the left over paper from the notebook. No scraps go to waste.
Then I stamped two of the Benny stamps in shrink plastic and colored with Alcohol Markers to make a pair of Benny earrings.
While I had my jewelry findings out I made another pair with the chalkboard hearts after mounting the stickers on red Cardstock that was in the kit. Added another punches heart and a rhinestone heart bling.
Hi there! It’s Beth today from Bourbon Creek Crafts with a fun little gift idea that you could use for Mother’s Day, graduation or teachers.
I used items from Echo Park’s Coffee collection that came in a past Flavor of the Month kit to make a decorative post-it notepad holder. You can see the entire process and the products I used in my video HERE.
I cut my piece of 8.5×11 inch cardstock down to 5 1/8 by 8 ½ inches. Then I scored this piece at 3 inches, 3 ½ inches, 6½ inches and 7 inches to make the base of the post-it notepad holder.
I decorated the holder with a floral pattern piece from the Coffee collection, a cut apart and used some Scrapping for Less sequins to finish it off. I added a note pad from Dollar Tree to the inisde. I also used some adhesive Velcro strips to keep the holder closed.
I hope you all enjoyed this project and that you have a crafty rest of your day!
