Big News and a Blog Hop!

I have some big news!  I am the new Design Team Coordinator for SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™!  I started Oct. 1, its been fun and busy! I have a chance to use what I know to help build another business.  I still work for  Spellbinders, so it’s been a bit busy here as I adjust to the added responsibilities.

So this week I have posted 3 projects to the blog there, for the Graphic 45 blog hop we’re doing, by way of trading, covering a post, and then covering for another post.  Crazy!  I need to create more and have some projects in my back pocket just in case…

Anyway, go to both SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L Blog and Graphic 45 Blog to see the fabulous stuff and leave comments there to win prizes.

Here’s a shot of today’s project, (click the image) for more details and comment there to win (and scroll back to see the other posts this week too!):

Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!

Today is my day for the Spellbinders™ and Core’dinations® Blog Swap!

My card today is cute and easy –

So easy, in fact, that you can make this in one cut/emboss pass using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine!

I took a piece of Core’dinations Black Magic Cardstock and cut the front edge with a Spellbinders Edgeabilities® Classic Petal Edger die and one of the Decorative Inserts from the same set.  At the same time, I cut the Fancy Tags Three  and Labels Twenty dies.  In the embossing step I added a Classic Rectangles LG die to just emboss the frame onto the front of the card, and the rest of the dies embossed in that pass as well.

I stamped ‘Take Time” from the Gina K. Designs The Best Things in Life set on the Fancy Tag, with Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment ink. then sanded the embossed areas of all the die cuts, and also around the edges, including the card base.  I love how the colored core shows through!  And Core’dinations cardstock is nice and sturdy, it’s great for die cutting and card making.

A little bit of adhesive from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L, 3D Foam Squares, and the card is done!

Don’t you love how the Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies make the fabulous edge!!

And now for the contest details..

color core. Sand it, tear it, emboss it and so much more! The Core

maybe you are looking for something a bit more contrasting like the Black
Magic or Chocolate Box collections. The sandable core will shine through the
unique black and brown colors once it is sanded. Core’dinations has also
teamed up with industry leading companies such as Pink Paislee, BasicGrey,
Graphic 45 and more to create new and unique pre-embossed cardstock that
perfectly accents their patterned papers.

Paris Card Tutorial

Thanks so much for visiting and commenting yesterday.  You can still comment to enter to win prizes from Spellbinders™ Paper Arts,  Want2Scrap™,  and JustRite® Stampers – just be sure to comment on the Want To Make It Fabulous post before the contest ends on Friday Sept 9.

Alrighty then, I promised instructions!  First, here’s the card again:

Beth Pingry card

These are the supplies:

Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Die Cutting Machine, Grand Squares, Ribbon Banners, Labels Twenty, Labels Twenty-Two
JustRite Stampers: Bon Voyage, Greetings from Paris stamp Sets
Want2Scrap: Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabling™, turquoise
SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares, MyStik™ Permanent
Copic: BG11, BG15, BG18 Sketch Markers
My Mind’s Eye: So Sophie (Sisters Peaceful Plumb, Brothers & Sisters Gracious Greenery
Inks: Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment; Tsukineko Moment Black Tuxedo
Old Book, craft knife, black and red cardstock

1. The black base was cut/embossed with Grand Squares, I folded the cardstock and made sure the fold line laid inside of the cut line of the die template.

2. The striped paper was also cut with Grand Squares.

3. Polka Dot and red papers were cut/embossed with Labels Twenty Two.

4. I stamped the Fleur de Lis onto a book page from an old book. {Note to self – be sure to stamp the Fleur right side up on the print.} Die cut and emboss, using low tack tape to secure the Labels Twenty die template once it is perfectly placed over the stamped image. Color  image with markers.

5. Emboss only with black cardstock and Labels Twenty – the same sized die used in step 4.  Leave the paper inside the die template, secure with low tack tape if desired.  With a sharp craft knife and a cutting mat, (or scissors – I’m not that good) cut around the outer edge of the die template.  This will create a mat for the die cut in Step 4.


6. I stamped the Paris and France onto a blank book page (so it matched the color of the Fleur paper). Then die cut/emboss with Ribbon Banner die template. Again, use low tack tape to secure placement of die template if desired.

7. With the Fleur de Lis Rectangle Nestabling, trim the medium sized piece from the package with scissors, leave it on the plastic backing.  Cut between the ‘stones’ to fit the sides of the red die cut label.  Peel and stick, the Nestabling keeps it shape!

8. With remaining bling from the piece, place in key points along Fleur de Lis stamped image and between Paris and France.

9. Ink the edges of the die cuts with Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment ink.

10. Assemble!  I used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L 3D  Foam Squares and MyStik Permanent adhesive  to attach the layers.

Tips:

  • You can cut multiple die templates at once in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine, saves time and effort!
  • Old Book pages really drink up the ink, be prepared to color the image several times.

Strawberry Bread Page

Good Morning!  Just wanted to show the Strawberry Bread page I made for the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Blog yesterday.  You can click through to see the rest close up photos.

3D Foam Squares pop up the strawberries, banner and seed packet.  A Photo CD Pocket holds the recipe, and there is still space to add a CD of her scanned handwritten recipes.

The photo is my grandma,  circa late 1930’s I think.

I love that most of her recipes are hand written.  Oleo is butter or margarine, if you want to make the bread.

Supplies:
SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L: 3D Foam Squares, Photo CD Pockets, MyStik™ Permanent adhesives
Spellbinders Paper Arts: Grand Calibur™ machine, S7-018 Big Scalloped Border Grand, LF-161 Grand Labels One, S4-046 Banner Basics Three
Imaginisce®: “Berrylicious Collection” Sweet Summer Garden, Summer Stripe, Sunshine Seeds, Berry Patch, Just Peachy
