Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde sharing a card I made using several goodies from SFL. This time of year I find myself wanting to make Fall, Halloween, and Christmas cards. What I don’t typically find is enough time, am I right? The card I am sharing with you today has the colors that make me think of Fall and the critters too.
Here is a rundown of what went into making this card:
This card came together very easily and would have been a quick card but I decided to fussy cut out the figures instead of using my Scan n Cut which I almost immediately regretted. Those moose antlers are no joke! I love the way it turned out and look forward to sending it on to some friends.
Thank you for stopping in today, I hope you will make some time for yourself and get creative.
I also used the SFL Sketch Challenge #8 card sketch. You can see my full process video HERE.
The card sketch makes it easy and gives you all the measurements. I used a navy cardstock panel as my mat and then cut the patterned paper into 3 inch strips. I just trimmed those strips down so that the patterned paper would look like it created one solid 3 by 8 inch panel on top of the navy card mat.
I used a 2 3/4 inch stitched circle die to cut out my colored image and then a 3 inch circle die to cut another piece of the navy cardstock to mat my image. This circle then covered the seam where my 2 patterned paper pieces meet up on the card.
I added an orange strip to play off the orange in my colored image and used the sentiment “Happy Pumpkin Spice Season” from the stamp set. I finished off my card with some orange enamel dots left over from a recent Flavor of the Month card kit.
Thanks for checking out my card today! I hope you’re all having a crafty day!
I used the envelopes as the base of my album, adhering the flap of one envelope into another envelope to make a set of pages. I used Art Glitter Glue for this step. You just repeat the process until you have the amount of pages you want. Once you get your last envelope added on, you take the flap from the very first envelope and adhere it down to the very last envelope you added. You can see the full process in the video.
Once my album was put together, I trimmed the patterned paper down to 5 3/8 square for both the covers and inner pages. This allowed a small Kraft border to be visible around my patterned paper. I decorated the pages with the scrap strips I had left from cutting down the 6×6 paper, along with the stamped sentiments and images.
I adhered my decorated pages to the album with Scor-tape. I finished the album off with some sequins throughout, just to add a little pop of bling.
Once I finished the album, I realized I had a bunch of scrap strips leftover, so I decided to make a card to use those pieces up.
I cut down a piece of cardstock to 3 3/4 by 5 inches. I added some adhesive across the whole front of this panel and then started laying the strips down diagonally across my panel. I added a piece of cardstock behind this panel as a card mat. I used one of the At the Beach sentiments that I had stamped but not used for the album as the sentiment for this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed seeing the Golden Beach paper as well as my quick little mini album! Have a great day!
Kim here from @cardmakingblonde here today wishing you Fall Blessings!
Here in Florida we have seen temps dipping into the 80’s so Fall has officially arrived! We joke about it but if you are either from here or if you’ve lived here long enough there really is a change in the feel and smell of the air that tells you Fall is here. I still wish we had the changing leaves but alas, you can’t have it all right?
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!
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!
