A Few Card Kit Scrap Pages

Today I am sharing a bunch of my recent scrap pages I made with the Spellbinders card kit components. As I have said, I do love these kits! why not create pages with them too!

Spellbinders card kit scrapbook pages, Stamp with Jill

First up is the January card kit with my Mom and my daughter on our annual after Christmas shopping trip. I used the you’re my type 6×6 paper. The flowers and stems are the card kit dies. Even the sequins are from the kit too. The gold letters are from the December card kit. I added a paper doily, bubblegum and sage card stock and fashion gold accents. “Cherish” is from the Small doe of the month.

Second are some puppy shots from last summer. The black striped paper and the chipboard embellishments are January You’re My Type card kit components. This time I added matching card stock, washi tape, black thread and rhinestones.

The third is a winter page from last fall of Thomas. He loves the snow! Winter wishes card kit components for this page. The printed paper, gold letters, the tag, the tiny snowflake dies and the polar bear die were part of the card kit. This time I added the cardstock, the paper doily and die cut the snow flake with the Spellbinders ___die.

Finally, we have Gus’s gotcha day. The components of this page are a little more diverse. The emblishment (hearts, scallop, camera, sentiments) are from the January You’re my type kit. I added some GinaK and FSJ designer papers, card stock and enamel dots. Without a doubt, I love this layout and it is totally scrap-lifted from Paper Issues Scrap lift Sunday. You can check that out in the Paper Issues friends and fans Facebook group HERE.

It’s Spellbinders Card Kit time!

I absolutely stalk the mailbox for my Spellbinders Kit and Caboodle club box. It has become one of my favorite things to create with each month and the fact that the large die and small die of the month are included makes it a GREAT VALUE.

My box came last week. The only downside of this kit is that it takes a good 2 weeks to get to the east coast. Hoping that Spellbinders improves on that! In spite of the slower shipping, I LOVE everything in the kit and it is totally my style!

These are primarily from the You’re My Type card kit. At any rate, I will be working with the dies this week. Stay Tuned because they are so cute!

Coffee Cards with the Frappe Shake die

Coffee, coffee and more coffee! It’s Coffee Cards for todays post. I love the Frappe Shake Die from Honeybee stamps. I altered the cup just a bit and made these adorable regular coffee cup cards.

Getting more use out of a die that you invested in is always a PLUS. This die is no exception. You can see my original post that uses the Frappe Shake die in its original form here. Let’s get right to the video tutorial:

Now that you know how to make the coffee cards, lets take a closer look at the designs. My favorite is the Llama Latte! (the design is cased from Amy Tsuruta). This uses the Follow your heart 6×6 paper pack, No-Prob llama stamps and the Perfect Blend.

Can you believe this is Cozy Christmas paper? The stars are just perfect for birthday!

Given that we are in the season of love, I needed a Valentine’s coffee cup! This also uses the Follow Your heart 6×6 paper pack.

Finally we have another birthday card. of course I always have to have a full stash of birthday cards ready to go!

Valentine’s Card in a box and a Blog Hop

I absolutely the LOVE the WOW factor of a card in a box. The first one I made was almost 5 years ago for my sons Carson’s 14th birthday. Time to share how easy it is! Are you ready for a fun monster Valentine card in a box? And a Blog Hop? Today you get both!

First lets take a peek at the card:

Stamp with Jill, Card in a Box Valentine card

Of course I am using the “Eyes on You” stamp set. So much fun these monsters. Even though these were for Halloween, I knew they would be perfect for Valentines and of course birthdays too! Totally adorable!

Lets get right to the Card in a box video tutorial:

It is important to see the card in a box closed. This is the front. all the fun elements are hidden so the wow factor when the card is open is a surprise!

And the back of the card is where I like to put the message. Another key point this easily fits into and A2 envelope.

Stamp with Jill, Card in a Box Valentine card, back view

Most important you need card in a box specs!

Two 4 x 6 pieces of card stock. Scored on the long side at 2″, turn and score at 2 and 5-1/2. Two pieces of 1 x 5 card stock, scored at 3/4 on both ends. Follow your heart printed paper: Four pieces 1-3/4 x 1-3/4, Two pieces 3-1/4 x 1-3/4, One piece 3-1/4 x 3-3/4. Plus one piece of whip cream 3-1/4 x 3-3/4 for the back of the box.

Now its time for the Blog Hop:

Equally important are the supplies I have used. Especially if you need to add some Monsters to your collection.


So Very Plaid Indeed

Happy Plaids that is. This is the Happy Plaids stamp set from Concord and 9th. What a fun tool this is and the end result is just gorgeous!

Pink and gray is soooooooo pretty! I kept these cards pretty simple since the main focus is the plaid. To make this particular pattern, I relied on my Tim Holtz platform to help me in two ways:  positioning the stamps straight, and for “almost” even spacing. Once my background was stamped, I moved onto creating pretty cards with them. Check out my Video Tutorial here:

The versatile Happy Plaids stamp set works perfectly to create a plaid background. Not only is it designed to cover an entire card front, but allows you to also use it diagonally and you can also make stripes. WOW!

Coffee cards are always fun! Coffee First Die set paired with the Sentiment from MFT called Stay Cool. LOVE!!

Recipe for happiness from MFT. Many of you know my husband is the cook around here so this guy is just perfect! And the sentiments in this set are so cute!

Finally the Spellbinders Small die of the month for December. Another fun die set to have in my collection.

A Winter Birthday Sketch Challenge

How fun is this? I love the pink and oatmeal cookie color combo and the Winter Wishes card kit 6 x 6 paper pack!

Created this birthday card by following the Freshly made Sketch Challenge #369. I have really enjoyed playing with these the last few weeks. This is the sketch:

And here are the Supplies. The Deer head and the pink sparkly washi tape are embellishments from the December Spellbinders card kit. Being that you can’t purchase them today, if it becomes available I will add a link. The rest of the Supplies are here:


Re-Stock Your Birthday Card Stash

I need more birthday cards! I gifted big boxes of handmade cards this holiday season so I could make room for more. The one theme I need more of is birthday cards. Check out these beauties!

I found another treasure on the Spellbinders website. The Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies. WOW. on Sale now for ONLY $11.99 (I love a good deal!) You can see another card using the fancy edged rectangles HERE.

Check out my video tutorial to show you how quickly you can make a pile of these to have in your stash!

This Birthday card is so striking with the black sparkle tape and the Good Life Paper. As a matter of fact, this card is my favorite of the group and the paper one of my favorite FSJ paper packs.

The real focus of this card is the scalloped rectangle. Die cut a bunch of scalloped rectangles and flowers, pick your pretty papers, grab some matching card stock and inks and you are ready to go.

This little flower and leaf die is from the December Small Die of the Month club. (I will add the link if and when it becomes available.) You can easily use and small die that you have in your stash or use the Spring Kisses flowers and leaves right out of the package. (link below)

Surprisingly the cards all look significantly different when you change the paper and the colors. This layout works best with smaller floral (or other) printed paper.

Finally, on this last card I changed the layout slightly with a larger piece of DSP, no washi tape and 1 less layer of white.

Measurements:

Card base: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, White: 4 x 5-1/4, Printed paper: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8. White panel on the inside of the cards is 4 x 5-1/4

Last card measurements: Card base: 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, Printed paper 5-1/2 x 3. matching strip of cardstock 1/2 x 5-1/2.

Get Your Snowflakes-On Sale

A few weeks back I realized I was in need of some new snowflakes in my die collection. I found 2 really awesome snowflake dies sets on the Spellbinders website that are perfect for card makers. First, let me share with you the snowflake cards.

This has a holiday sentiment but it is easy to change to a winter thank you or a winter Birthday or Thinking of You.

For this card, I paired the snowflakes with the Snapshot Frames and the little birdies from my favorite Snowman set Snow Buddies. The cute birds are colored with a light blue copic marker.

Heat embossed silver tips on the snowflake! Yes please! In addition, using the negative die cut image for this is also a bonus. So pretty in real life.
