Birthday Card!

1
Teresa here from Fresh and Renewed...Back again with another birthday card...this time for a very dear Aunt.



I had this image in my stash...I have no idea where it came from...back in the day before I knew it wasn't keen to participate in stamped image swaps I did that and I think this may be where the image came from.

Pansies are my second favorite flower and if my aunt is anything like her daughter she absolutely loves flowers. My favorite color of Pansy is purple...that deep dark purple. All of these combined are the reason I colored this image purple. Hope you enjoy!



Supply List:
Yellow card base from my stash
Pansy image from my stash (I know this is naughty, we learn as we grow)
Copic Markers
Avery Elle Dotted Die
Fancy Pants "Office Suite" patterned paper
Clear Wink of Stella
Viva De Cor Yellow Pearl Pen

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day! SBC Design Team Member

So for today, I have a special requested prject. My son wanted book markers and I thought how perfect for this theme!!!  I let him pick out the images, the papers and help me color. Needless to say, when the girls caught on to what we were doing, they started to make their requests so I think you will be seeing those next month, lol!

So here they are!

When the book is closed, you can see them peeking out over top.  I especially love the lion.
His favorite was the dinosaur.

Now, this book marker is super easy. Cut a piece of card stock 2 1/2 x 11" and score at 5 1/2". Then all you have to do is embellish and slip book marker over edge of paper.

So after we finished, I decided I wanted one. So I had to make me one and Sam even helped so that makes it extra special.

Thanks for stopping by!

March 23-- DIY Kids Coloring Book by Sandy
March 25-- Long Easel Card by Gail


So I have a very easy and great tutorial that you can do either with your kiddos or for them as a little gift.

I am going to show you the 
5 min DYI Kids Coloring Book!
Let's get started !

DIY Kids Coloring Book
 by Sandy Hentzel

Items needed:
4 pieces of 4x4 white cardstock
small hold punch
pencil
6 inch floral wire 
wire cutter
black ink
stamp set
(I used Zoo Friends)

First you will measure your holes. 
Starting 1 inch down, measure every 1/4 inch five times. 
You should end an inch from the bottom.

 Next, I like to wrap my 6 inch floral wire around a pencil to get my "coil".

Now you want to twist the wire into the holes. 

 As I am twisting, I will use the pencil to make sure I keep my coil shape.

 At the ends, you want to hook your wire into a loop so the coil stays in place.

After you hook your ends, this is what the front should look like.

And here is a picture of the inside of your book. 

Now the fun part is to start stamping the images that you want. Here are the images I used covering the front, back and the pages in the middle. 
I like to personalize the back page.  But the ideas are endless and I can guarantee 100%,  your little one will LOVE their own little book.
Plus with the new craze in coloring books, I bet there is a special girlfriend or two that would love a floral image book, one with birds, etc.
 MFPStamps are fabulous line art stamps perfect for this type of craft!

Can I just confess what a challenge today's card was?!?!  I am not good with masculine cards. It is like my mind goes blank! Am I the only one??? LOL

So, I really went outside the comfort box. I mean, just picking papers is tough for me. But I need to get some masculine cards in my stash so here is my first one up.

To fit the wild theme plus make it a Birthday card for my stash, I went with a spin on the
 "King of the Jungle".
I used two stamps sets for this one.
First is the lion head, then I add the crown which you can find on the mini "You May Bow" set.
Of course I used my tried and true, Prismacolor pencils to color the images.

So what are your tips for masculine cards?!?!

Wedding Card!

Teresa here from Fresh and Renewed. I have a wedding card today using a technique I have wanted to try for a long time.



I heat embossed the image with white fine detail powder on vellum and then flipped it over and colored it with Copic markers. I sooooo need to get better about keeping a list of products used.

Throwback Thursday!

1
Hello Crafty Friends!  Brenda here today and I thought that I would do a "Throwback Thursday" of one of my favorite techniques that SBC has shown its readers.  It is the Triple Time Stamp Technique. This technique was featured on the SBC blog prior to my being a Design Team member.  At the time I entered three of my cards for the challenge. To see the original post head on over here and learn more about this fun technique.  Here are the three cards that I entered at the time:





I loved the technique so much I went on to create several more cards.  Here is one more:



I love the that you can use background stamps with this technique.  I have so many of them that seem not to get used as often as they should.  This technique is perfect for them.  Also, stickers can be used. That is what the present is on the one above.

I hope that you enjoyed today's Throwback Thursday. If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Cricut Fun

1
Hello Crafty Friends!  Brenda here today with a couple of die cuts that I made with my Cricut.  The inspiration behind these cuts is a Disney Park Attraction die-cut swap that I am in.  Do any of you participate in swaps?  I love to be in swaps.  Since I scrap a lot of Disney those are the swaps I tend to be in.  For this particular swap my assigned cut is related to The Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland (or WDW).  I had to create three different die cuts that would all work well together on a layout. This is what I came up with:



I purposely left the blank space on the torch.  I thought that it would make a great space to journal. These three cuts were all made using the Cricut cartridge, Luau.  I have gotten a lot of use out of this cartridge.  A while back I created a layout using it.  To see the layout head on over here.  I also embossed the totem pole and the pineapple.  I like the added texture.

As I said, I scrap a lot of Disney.  I would love to hear what your favorite thing to scrapbook is. Please leave a comment below and share what you enjoy scrapping.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Wednesday YouTube Tutorial - Let's Decorate A Wooden Box

This video is not quite the same as my usual videos.  It's not about learning a new card fold or technique, it's about creatively decorating a wooden box so that it makes a great gift or home decor item.  It's fun...it's easy...and it looks great.  I hope this video gives you great ideas of your own :)


Here are links to the My Bestie image and paper that I used:
