Home Decor Desktop Calendar

Flourishes has lovely digital calendar pages.  Seeing as it was the end of January and I needed a calendar for my craft room, I decided to download them to make a desktop calendar project.  I decorated  this quite quickly and simply with my new Cricut Home Décor cartridge.  But you don’t need a Cricut to make the calendar!  It’s an easel style base so it can be easily opened and closed; I can leave it standing on my desk or pop it in my purse!  It’s compact at 41/4 x 41/4!  If you would like to make one too, I ‘ve written a full picture tutorial you can see HERE at CUSTOM CROPS.  I hope you enjoy it! As always, if you have any questions or comments I am happy to hear them!  Thanks for stopping by! Tonight at midnight I will post the first of three challenge sample cards for Flourishes!! Yippeee!!! They are having a celebration for their 1 year anniversary of Timeless Tuesday Challenges and invited me to make some samples for …

Fight Like a Girl!

October is breast cancer awareness month as I’m sure many of you are only too aware.  It’s hard these days to find someone who has not in some significant way been touched by cancer, be it through a friend or family member or a personal struggle. It is everyone’s fight! With this in mind, a few challenges have been focusing on making cards that are getting us to “think pink”.  I’ve made my card today for two of these.  First, Flourishes challenge asking us to use pink and the Cuttlebug Spot asking for pink embossed creations. I recently bought a fabulous set called Think Pink- Fight Like A Girl from Flourishes that has many amazing images for making breast cancer awareness cards.  If you haven’t seen it, and are looking for something a little different this is really a must see.  I was so excited to see something fresh and different for making this type of card!  I know many of you make lots of these cards throughout the year for charity events and such, …

A Tutorial- Flat Fold Gift Boxes

WHAT YOU WILL NEED: For a 3″ x 3″ box Decorative card stock (sturdy double sided ) cut to 10.5″  x  3  1/8″   (I used Parisian Breeze specialty dp from Stampin’ Up!) Coordinating card stock (for inner box body) Cut to 6″ x 6″ Strong small magnets (Basic Grey magnetic snaps work well) Adhesive STEP 1: Score your 10.5″ decorative paper at 1.5″, 4.5″, 6″, and 9″ so it can fold as shown above. STEP 2: Score your 6″ x 6″ card stock at 1.5″ in on all four sides. STEP 3:   Fold two side in to meet at the middle, as shown above. STEP 4:  Score the four corners on the diagonal, as shown above. STEP5:  Crease all scored lines well for easy folding. STEP 6:  With long decorative paper laying flat (the side that you choose as the inside of your box facing up), place and adhere  the inner box on top, lining it up just inside the the bottom edge.  The score lines on both pieces will  line up perfectly.  See photo …

A Little Somethin’

These sweet boxes were inspired by the tiny chocolate boxes featured on SCS.   I love these little 2″square by 1″ deep boxes.  They are  just so perfect for a small treat!  With Valentine’s just around the corner, they will come in handy for those sweet surprises. Beate included a tutorial for these boxes on SCS, and it is great!   But I have to admit something.  I am always looking for alternate ways to do things.  I am a hands on “tinkerer”. Usually I will only glance through a tutorial, mostly at the pictures, then start playing with my papers, measuring and scoring until I have something that works for me. Usually a simplified version of the original.   I rarely actually follow the directions.  (hey, it works for me!)  It’s a lot like a cook who never follows a recipe, but instead adds or leaves out ingredients at their discretion. (which I also do)   So, with that said; I modified how I made these boxes, even though the end result looks the same.  …

Cuttlebug Fun!

Hello and Happy Friday! I got my cuttlebug as a Christmas present, and I love it! I just haven’t had a chance to play with it that much. So I am making a concentrated effort to use it and to try new things with it! Hopefully you will see in the near future new projects like the Post-it Purse Notes that I showed you all in my last post. I made this card for the Ways to Use it -Rub ons- challenge on SCS. I tried this technique of embossing only portions of the card front. I also used the Scor-Pal for the embossed lines at the top of the card. CARD SUPPLIES: Rub on butterfly- K& Co.
