Unique Gift Wrapping - A Homemade Pillowcase!

Today, I want to share with you not only a super easy sewing project to make for Christmas gifts but also to make for various organizations that are looking for pillowcases to be donated to children in need. I know when I had left my first husband, my daughter received her very own pillowcase from a quilting organization at the Woman's Abuse Shelter. Since then, the Quilt Guild I belong to collects them along with a local quilt store.

Since that time, I have made special pillowcases for Jen which came especially handy when there would be "sleep-overs" as not to get her pillow confused with others BUT also a great wrapping instrument for gifts.  I now make them for Lily and this is her "special" pillowcase that I made to put her Christmas presents in this year.

SBC Mini Card Kits

One of our exciting announcements in 2014 was starting our new Mini Card Kits, which you can order through Scrapping for Less. We will be continuing with these kits in 2015. Crafting can be fun and cheap especially with our kits that are $15.00/ free shipping in the US, International shipping extra.




It is perfect for all levels of scrapbookers! So whether you are a newbie or an experience scrapper, these kits has everything you'll need to create fast and easy projects. All you need to do is get out your scissors, paper trimmer and adhesive.
Why card kits? A couple reasons, one is getting fabulous papers and embellishments from popular Scrapbooking Companies, without buy a ton that you never use and letting it all just sit in the drawer.

  The second is cost. I am a frugal scrapbooker and affordability is always high on my list.  It is not always easy to spend $30- $50 on a kit. 
Our kits will be $15.00 which INCLUDES shipping!

And lastly is convenience, with these kits, there is no gu…

Silhouette Knock-Out Technique

Hello, Friends!  Marilyn here with a technique that may be new to some of you.  Those who use it call it the knock-out technique.

Here is an example of what the knock-out technique looks like:

To create my example, I first typed out the "Happy New Year" in black using a thick font (I used Impact).  The line spacing will need to be adjusted to make the lines closer to each other.

Then I typed 2015 in blue using the font Arial.  The colorful confetti was purchased and downloaded from the Silhouette store.


I color filled the confetti and placed around the 2015 text.



Next place the 2015-confetti design on top of the Happy New Year text and duplicate - you'll need two copies of your design for this effect.

Highlight the top design and choose "crop".  You'll notice that your left over pieces are all black.  You'll need to group and color-fill the top design again.


Using your second copy, highlight and choose "subtract".  Regroup all the pieces once …

Friday's PL

Hi there, Cristina with SBC here with you to share a PL layout I did. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. It all came so fast so I hope everyone enjoyed some good quality family time.
Today I will be sharing a PL layout I did of my daughter at the beach. I really wanted to incorporate some color photos with the black and white. I really like to use both color and black and white pictures, I think it gives it some character.



With this layout I used:
Project Life - Midnight Core Kit
Authentique - embellishments
MayaRoad - Ribbon
Heidi Swapp - Gold and Pink color mist

I wanted to give one of the cards some extra color, so I splattered some of the color mist onto it.

SBC Easel Tutorial ~

Hello Friends,

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club and today for Friday's Cards.

Today I would like to feature my Easel Cards.

Easels are one of my most favorite cards I make and I try to utilize my Easels for various styles, its amazing what you can achieve, they are so much fun.

Tip of the Day:
I always use 285gsm for my Easel for strength to hold the heaviest of embellishments.

Now onto my project:

Here are some of the different designs I have used my Easels for:










 I always use 285gsm Easel Stand and I make my Easel separately to my platform.Using an A4 Quill Metalique 285gsm Board I score with my Scor-Pal as per photo hereunder scoring at 2" ~  4" ~ 8"


Fold and join with double sided adhesive tape


 Cut your platform out measuring 9" X 6+1/2"


Cover your Platform and your Easel in desired designers papers and then place your Easel on top of your Platform with double sided adhesiveYour Easel is now ready to decorate for your project
