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!
I am a country/small town girl at heart but oh those city streets and the hustle and bustle of a city is very exciting!

It’sJessand I’m back with a second project featuring the adorable stand along release from Scrapping for Less. I love today’s project – maybe even more than my first one! Let’s get started.
I grabbed a few Distress Oxide ink pads and started on my blending. I like to start with my lightest color and blend over the entire area first. Then I go in with my next darker color and blend just slightly less area than with the first color. I keep doing this as I move to each darker color and the end result is a really cool gradient effect with the colors.
After my ink blending was done, I grabbed a sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir and tapped the barrel to get some of that gorgeous clear sparkle to plop right onto my panel. Since the Distress Oxides react with water, I got a really cool effect with this technique.
I set my panel aside to dry and moved on to coloring. I chose to use alcohol markers here (the Spectrum Noir Classique line), but you can use whatever method you’re most comfortable with. Once your coloring is done, you’re ready for a sentiment.
I decided to do some ‘stamp surgery’ as I’ve heard it called. I wanted a more long and narrow sentiment rather than a stacked one, so I cut apart the two lines of text ‘fairy blessings’ and ‘coming your way!’ Then, I used my Mini MISTI to line them up in a straight line across and stamp them onto black cardstock with Embossing Ink. I poured on some white embossing powder, tapped off the excess, and melted the powder with my heat tool.
I adhered my sentiment across the top section of my card and then mounted the card panel on a white A2 sized card base. I’m absolutely in love with how this one turned out. Be sure to let me know what you think about it by leaving a comment!
Hello, it’s Stacy here from Craftaholicmomma today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a paper craft project featuring all three products from the brand new SFL release, Winter Fairy.
My daughter’s birthday is coming up at the end of January so I wanted to make her something she could use at her party and then afterwards hang in her room.
This banner was very simple. I did not use any dies, just minimal supplies.
First I stamped and colored all of the main images from the two stamp sets, Winter Fairies and Fairy House. I’ve heard lots of good things about the Ohuhu Alcohol Markers from Amazon so I wanted to give them a try. I love my Copics but sometimes I want a bullet nib. So I purchased the 200 pack bullet nib markers at a very reasonable price (50 cents a marker). I was very pleased with them. They were all very juicy.
I listed the colors I used for each image.
I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out my images including the snowflakes.
Next I picked out 6 sheets of the new SFL Winter in Pink 6×6 paper pack. I trimmed these to 5 1/4″ square. Next I measured the bottom edge halfway (2 5/8″) and made a mark.
Next I connected the two upper corners with my mark, drew a line and then cut on the two lines to form my banner piece.
I wanted to mat the paper on white card stock. So the card stock is cut a little bit bigger at 5 1/2″ square. I repeated the same process marking my edge at 2 3/4″.
Next I took a hand held hole punch and punched two holes in the upper corners of all 6 pieces. This is where I will later string my ribbon through.
Next I popped up my images on adhesive foam tape and centered them on the banners.
I finished decorating them with the snowflakes and adhesive bling. I ran pink ribbon to connect them and Viola! I made a seriously adorably cute banner in less than one hour!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy all of the beautiful projects the design team creates this month with this brand new Winter Fairy release.
