I think with this one, you could either make your frame like I did with washi or paper strips, or maybe you might have a die that is similar and can do it for you! I know you will want to check out the blog because the DT has some great ideas on how to do the borders!
I am playing with another card kit. I got this one from Scrap Shotz at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival back in April (and I’m just now getting to it). I’ll be posting the cards I made from it at a later date, but I’m down to my last few pieces of DP. I just used some gold glitter paper for my border and a sentiment stamp from my stash. The flowers are also from my stash as well. It’s not real fancy but I like the gold accents. It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the DP has gold in it as well.
Be sure to stop by the blog to play along with us ok! We can’t wait to see what you create!
Happy Monday everyone! Monday, is it ever really happy??? LOL
So on the Use Your Stuff blog today we have an Anything Goes challenge! Who doesn’t love that! We just want to see what you are working on this week.
For me, my BFF gave me one of those Annie’s Attic card kits (she got two in error). I hadn’t used them before so it was fun to give it a try. They give you a lot of stuff in the bag including paper, stencil, stamp, ink, some enamel dots and a bunch of die cuts and then the instructions to make 3 cards. I’m guessing that since they give you 2 sheets of the die cuts, you can make 2 of each card. This one was very red, white and blue! I decided to just make the 3 with the instructions and then use the rest of the supplies for a bunch more cards. I ended up getting a baker’s dozen out of the kit and I still have a bunch of the enamel dots and a shwack of the die cuts left. I really like the projects though! I needed to make birthday cards and since most of them were going to the USA it kinda worked out.
Here’s one from the batch!
The sentiment and the card base were mine but pretty much everything else was in the kit. I decided to use some of my clear bling rather than the red and blue enamel dots on this one. This was actually the last card that I made with just some scraps that I had left over.
If you want to see all the cards I made with it, pop on over to my instagram page: if_the _scrap_fits and you can see them all there.
I hope you will stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT have for you.
I haven’t done a lot of shaker cards lately, so I thought that I would go for one on this card! I don’t have any arch dies, so this was as close as I could get. Great thing about sketches are that they are a jumping off point. Sometimes you have to adjust according to your vision, or in my case supplies!
I just used some stash stuff for this one. I like the colors! I hope that you will stop by the blog today and check out what the rest of the team has created for you! Some really great projects!
Please visit their blog for all the details. But if you’d like to play along, be sure to follow the theme of ROYGBIV – use traditional rainbow colors or change them up to pastels for Easter cards, then add in our sketch with your project for the extra challenge. Our challenge will run for two weeks so you have until 4/16 to play along with both challenges!
Here is the sketch for our portion of the challenge!
Here’s mine folks!
I used some paper from Your Next Stamp Birthday Girl set and the sentiment die is from my stash! Be sure to play along with both challenges!
Hey everyone! Our first challenge of March is up at the Use Your Stuff blog! Our theme is paper strips! You can use a full strip or like me use strips to make banners and borders! This is such an easy challenge and so we hope that you will play along with us!
I decided to use a sketch from the January 2023 Page Maps for this one. The paper is from Your Next Stamp’s Birthday Girl and the Make a Wish is from Scrapbook & Cards Today. I decided to give it some interest by die cutting it 4x and then gluing it to the outline. I added some gel pen lines to the black strip and the hearts are from YNS as well.
Be sure to stop by the Use Your Stuff blog and play along with us and to see what some of the other DT have created with their paper strips!
Here is today’s card, surprise! Made from another sampler!
I used papers and cut outs from the August 2020 sampler, which had product from Pink Paislee’s 5th & Monaco collection and the Kate and Ash collection from Simple Stories. The sentiment is from my stash and the enamel dots are Simple Stories.
I hope you like it, and be sure to come play along with us this week over on the blog. The DT has created some great projects for you to see!
I’m not sure why I went with a Halloween theme for this card. I just had this idea in my head to do Halloween cupcakes!
I printed off three of the cupcakes and colored them with my copics. I then added some stickles & Nuevo Drop to look like sprinkles. I decided to go with a slimline so that I could have enough room for all 3 of my cupcakes. I think that this is an older Echo Park line. I added just a bit of black glimmer paper in behind and of course some enamel dots. I just printed the sentiment off on my computer and I still felt it needed something to give it more of that Halloween theme, so I went with some little silver spiderwebs.
Head on over to the blog…the Design Team has some really great projects for you to check out! Be sure to play along with us this month too!
I needed to do a schwack of birthday cards for a group that I am in, and I knew I wanted to use these square 5×5 card bases I found at the thrift store I work at. I got 15 of them for 1.50.
I found a great sketch on the Mojo Monday website
It was pretty simple and easy to mass produce. Here’s what I came up with!
I just pulled some papers out of my scrap box and the flowers you have seen before many times. I used a sentiment from a set I bought with Craft Creations Too and then added some little crystals from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards. This collection was called Glamorous. Some of them also have some tiny Heidi Swapp flowered gems on them. I really love how these turned out.
This is the last little bit from my SCT sampler! I used one of the die cuts included with the sampler and then I added a sentiment from one of dies in my stash. Some black Nuevo drops and we are good to go.
Be sure to stop by the blog and see the great creations from the rest of the DT.
It’s time for our July challenge at Dragonfly Dreams everyone! Our theme for the month is Indoor Activities/Hobbies.
I was at first stumped at what to do for this one, but then I realized that there is a lot that this could entail….board games, crafting, baking/cooking, watching movies or tv…lots really.
I chose to go with one of my son’s favorite activities…LEGOS! I’m sure a lot of moms can relate!
I have this Stampin Up set called Boys will Be Boys and it was perfect for this one.
I stamped the image in various directions quite a few times and then colored it with some copics just in some basic colors. It’s hard to se but some of them are also highlighted with some Glossy Accents (the ones that look a bit darker 😉 ). A perfect card for that boy in your life.
Make sure you drop by the blog and see the rest of the projects from the DT, they have a great variety for you!
