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!):

My Idea of Housework on a Card

I have been nothing short of crazy busy lately,  so I apologize for leaving the blog for periods of time.  I swear one day I will catch up…

Anyway I have a tutorial posted on the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Crafty Power Blog today.  Click on over to see the instructions for “My Idea of Housework”.


Craft It Forward Star Card

Scrapbooks etc. Craft It Forward - 120x120 blog button

Welcome to the Scrapbook Etc. Craft it Forward Blog Hop!

My card is pretty easy to create, and in fact you could make multiples in no time at all!

I started with a Waltzingmouse Stamp. Actually it’s from a Christmas collection, Seasons Of Love, but I love the design in the star!

It fits the Spellbinders™ Stars Five die template set perfectly!

I added the letters to spell out “thanks” and some bling.

All the die cuts were attached to the card with 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™. I love the dimension they give when stacking and layering.

Other supplies used are WorldWin Papers CutMates in Blue Potatoes and Ripe Tomatoes; Want2Scrap Say it With Baby Bling pearls in Red, White and Blue, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letter stickers and Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles and Grand Calibur™ Machine.

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.

A Paper Basket for Easter

Or any other event, actually!  You pick the paper and accents!

Today is my day on the Crafty Power Blog, and I whipped up this little paper basket featuring Crafty Power Tape!

Make one, or make a several for parties!

You can even use them as place settings!

They’re easy enough for kids to do, and you get to use up some paper from the stash (so you can buy more, right?)

My featured die templates are:

S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities®

LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals

The first thing that came to mind was a baby announcement in a gate fold card.  The LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals were a perfect fit for the S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities.  It was pretty simple to construct, I layered the Grand Big Scalloped Ovals with Grand Ovals, using My Mind’s Eye Lush papers and cardstock.

The scallops allowed me to measure and fold the card perfectly!

I made a sleeve from the patterned paper, printed on the cut out from the large frame, and adhered the smaller frame to it.

Slide off the sleeve and the card opens.  I inked through the die template to color the embossed ducks and stitching detail.  I cut/embossed the frame in blue cardstock and pieced together a large frame to mat the cream colored frame.  I used the bear die cuts from the blue frame to sit in the bear shaped opening.

I love the peek-a-boo of the bear die cuts. Double sided patterned paper makes this card a delight to open, and the big scallops convey the sweetness of a new baby.  (No, there are no new babies in my house – just a very spoiled fur baby!!)  This card is going to be one of my favorites!
