Sweet Treat Card

6
Hi everyone! Sandy here to share today's Tuesday Card Fold project. I wanted to share something that is easy to make with just some simple scoring and folding.

But first, today's tip..... Score Tape is a must have in your craft box. It is one of the best tapes to use for bags and boxes.

 Christmas was so hectic around my home this year. I thought I was already until I realized that I didn't have a little something for the kiddos' teachers (the night before the last day of school before break this weekend, oops). So I decided to make a quick sweet-treat card for them.

How to make a Sweet- Treat Candy Card

Here is what you will need:
trimmer, bone folder, ribbon, scissors, craft knife, cardstock 8 1/2x11, score tape, a finished card and candy


First you will score at 3cm, 6cm, 9cm and 12cm horizontally and then turn paper vertically and score at 3cm, flip and score other side at 3cm 

Next, cut at score lines to 3cm vertical fold and then trim off to the first score line. See photo below.

In the second column, you are going to make your window.  

After you make your window (I just used my trimmer), You will add the score tape to the last column and the bottom backside of the second column tab, see below.

Now go ahead and start to fold over the score lines to make your box and fold bottom tabs to close the bottom. 

Now because I didn't use a piece of clear acetate, I went ahead and using my craft knife, made a slit in the middle of my card base for my ribbon to slide through.

Go head and add your candy, You can see below that 4 pieces work great.

Now add your finished card to you box base and tie your ribbon to help hold the candy in place (worked like a charm)

For this card, I added a small tag to embellish the sweet treat box part.

Very easy to make and is a little different from the tea light cards.

Here are my three finished cards...

Decorative Pillow

2
Hello, Friends... And Merry Christmas!  Today I want to show you a pillow I made for a family member.   But first, my tip:  It's Christmas!  Love one another. 

Check List:
  • Pillow Insert - purchased at Walmart
  • Pillow Cover - purchased at Walmart
  • Flourish - purchased in Silhouette store
  • Font - Precious
  • Print-Cut-Iron-On - Square1

Decorative Couch Pillow
using Square1 Iron-On

I purchased an 18" square pillow insert and cover, both from Walmart.  The cover was $7.99 (I think) and the pillow was around the same in cost.  I should have bought these items at Hobby Lobby.  They had a bigger selection and I could have used their 40% off coupon.

The swirl flourish was purchased in the Silhouette store for .50 cents.  I color-filled it in black.

"Garrett" text was created using the Precious font (found at dafont.com).

Flourish Swirl and Garrett text were first printed on Square1 Iron-on using my home printer.  It was then cut using the Silhouette.  Next, just iron-on to the pillow cover. 

Insert pillow and done! 

I hope you enjoyed my project today.

Glitter embossing

5
Hey kids!  It's Cindy for the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog today and I've got a fun glitter embossing technique to share with you. 

TiP:  Be sure and close your Versamark pad before applying the embossing powder.

Okay, grab the following supplies and let's get started :-)
Versamark pad
Embossing Tinsel (or you can use embossing pwd and glitter)
Heat tool
embossing folder
baby wipe

Steps:
1-open the embossing folder and generously apply Versamark to one side  (I used the raised side and got glitter coverage on the background of the embossed image)

2- put your cardstock inside the embossing folder and run it through your Cuttlebug

3- apply your embossing tinsel (this has glitter right in it)  or you can mix embossing powder with glitter about half and half ...should look like the photo below:
I started with a white piece of cardstock.  As you can see I missed a little spot with the Versamark...oops.

4- put excess embossing pwd back into the container.  Clean your embossing folder with a baby wipe.
5- heat the embossing tinsel/pwd/glitter with your Heat tool until it turns darker and starts to sparkle.

And here is the card I created with this glitter embossed background:
Add'l info:
5" square cardbase in white
Bugaboo Digital image - Reindeer Christmas Goodies   (They are having a sale-- 50% off all digital images until Dec 31st)
watercolor pencils

Glossy Accents - candy cane
Sew Easy floss in limeade

Thanks for stopping by the SBC blog today!  I hope I've inspired you to grab your embossing supplies and make something cool!  I want to wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy 2014!!

Have a blest day!

Welcome our Guest Designer Alicia

Congrats to Alicia for winning Challenge #7 with her wonderful card using the Letterpress Technique we have asked her to be our Guest Designer and share with us a little bit about herself and her favorite projects.
Inline image 3Inline image 4

Hi My name Alicia O'Bryant and I am a craft addict.  I have crafted for as long as I can remember.  I have been a "professional" crafter for 25 years.  I started making jewelry in 1988 for gifts and within a year I was selling my wares.  Jewelry was my primary artistic interested for many years, but along came my son.  After losing my first child I was going to document every moment of this child's life.  Well, I have!  He will be 14 soon and still being an only child has his every wish within my means and his every event documented.  I have scrapped so many soccer pages, I don't know if I can do another!  I get a little tired of all the boy pages, so I often scrap my nieces.  I scrap mainly traditional, but I have a flair with digital as well.  I recently attended a digital retreat with lots of classes.  I always have a New Year's resolution to take a new class and learn new skills.  I love to learn new techniques and the Scrapbook Blessings Club's letterpress technique challenge was just one of those challenges!  It was such a great technique and now I will carry my new skills on to new and exciting projects.  I was recently selected for The Paper Loft design team and am very excited to push my limits of crafting once again.  I have been creating some mixed media projects and always love small projects like cards and ATC's.  Thanks so much ladies for the recognition of my work, it feels so good to be valued.

I have provided pictures of some of my favorite projects and the picture of me includes my brooch bouquet that I also created

Christmas Scrap Tags

4
Hi friends!  Sandy here for ScrapBook Blessings Club to share with you Saturday's anything goes project. We will be using different techniques to make Christmas Tags today.

First, I have my tip of the day for you.... Gather up those scraps, they make excellent tags!

Onto today's project...
I have a couple tags to showcase that I did using scraps (nothing was bought new for these) and the different card techniques used for 12 days of Christmas Blog hop. I did 12 videos with 12 different cards.  You can check those out of step by step instructions. Right now, I will just show you how I used the same techniques to make my Christmas Tags for this year.
If you are a member of our Facebook Group then you got a sneak peak of these tags.  Plus our current challenge right now is TAGS, just create card or project but make sure it has a tag on it!!!

First up is my favorite one!

  • Gold Emboss Reindeer: 
supplies: embossing powder, heat gun, versa mark, ribbons, white gel pen for "snow", ink and dauber


  • Tag a tag:
supplies: large tag, ribbon, small tag with embellishents. Kinda different having a tag on a tag, lol. (it was a tag on a card for the blog hop)



Distress tag: paper tearing, embossing, sanding, inking
supplies: ribbons, Core'dinations cardstock (best kind for distressing) chipboard snowflakes, embossing powder, heat gun ( DT Cristina shared a video with us on how to double emboss chipboard. This is the first time I used the tech and I love it!)


Pre-made Embellishment tag:
supplies: tag, journaling square, chip board embellishment (seriously, this took me 1 min to make and I think its cute)


Clean and Simple tag:
supplies: bakers twine, ink pad and various stamps. (for CAS projects, remember: White Space)

Embossing, Border Punch and Sanding:
supplies: Cuttlebug, embossing folder, flower embellishment, ribbon, border punch, sanding block (one of my favorites!)

Tearing and embossing skinny tag:
supplies: embossing folder, sand block, chipboard snowflake, ribbon for the bottom and stamps ( This is my go to Christmas stamp, its always nice to have a "go to " stamp for you sentiments)

To make tags you can basically use anything you have on hand ( after Christmas sales are a great way to stock up on embellishments for cheap)
I hope your enjoyed today's project. If you have a question, please leave it in the comments, and a DT member will get back to you.  You can visit me to see more card/project ideas at A Working Mom's Joy. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques.  

And as always, comments are appreciated. Thank you for stopping by and Have a blessed day!
