In one week I’m starting the 12 Weeks of Christmas tutorial email series. For those of you who don’t know what that is, once a week for the 12 weeks leading up to Christmas I’ll send you, for FREE, a fantastic Christmas project tutorial that you can make. I’m very happy to share it with you however it’s only for members of my mailing list. So if you’re not on my mailing list by next Wednesday you will not get these fantastic 12 Weeks of Christmas emails. The 12 Weeks of Christmas tutorial projects include cards, gifts, bags, tags and wraps. Each project is exclusive to this email…
Saturday’s Memory Box Class It was a fun day with everyone turning a pizza box into a Memory Box with a pull out accordion folded section for notes, words of encouragement, photos etc. The accordion part sits inside the pizza box and we decorated the box and pages using the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP). These gorgeous little Memory Boxes can be used as a decor item as well as a cute way to preserve cherished memories and special occasions like weddings or new baby arrivals, even engagements.
Petal Promenade Meets Stitched Labels Squeal…, I’m so excited to share these cards with you. I am swooning over this gorgeous designer series paper and the new stitched labels framelits. This paper was created by firstly gathering hundreds of fresh flowers. They were then laid out and photographed by the designers. Not only that but the reverse sides have lovely marbled backgrounds and a stunning copper foil look. Watch how they did it in this short video. Then read on to get all the details on these 2 Petal Promenade meets Stitched Labels cards.
Garden Inspired Card Using New Big Shot Embossing Mats Welcome back, this card was inspired by a post from Kim McGillis and the beautiful cards she designed for her butterflies and flowers post in June. I wanted to use the new big shot embossing mats in my class to show how they turn your cutting dies into embossing dies. So to create my garden inspired card using new big shot embossing mats, I changed the first layer to the Springtime Impressions Thinlit Die of the spray of flowers and leaves.
Animal Outing Peek a Boo Card I designed this Animal Outing Peek a Boo Card as a fancy fold for my June classes. The peek a boo action design is from Melanie Marschall and she has a video with the instructions here, it’s in German but you can follow along easily.
