Family Mini Fold Out Book

Hi everyone... I have another quick and easy share today using our new 3D Vignette Mini Book Dies.  This is an easy style of book to make in that it's just a simple fold out style with small pockets that you can put pictures and other things in to mail or give someone.  This one i did for my sister to send a gift card and other goodies that i found for her about our family.  The papers are from a new line of Prima and have lots of pretty vintage flowers and other fun ephemera bits to decorate with.  I had so much fun doing this one !

For the inside of this you can cut the 6x6 pad to make the pocket layers for each of the sides to start with.  Then i added small cards to add the pictures and die cut tags to slide in the gift cards.  The sentiments and other pieces are from the ephemera set that goes with the papers so it all went together really easy.  

This die is a real gem.  The border is super cute to use as decoration or to also cut out of the paper to add a little something special to a plain fold or layer of a project.  I used this for the front to add more of a lacy detail to my corners and try something different.  

Here is the picture of the die cut set i used for the front.  I love using this piece for lots of different things.  It works perfects for 6s6 books and looks great on the front of a card too.

And here you can see the whole thing better.  Along time ago Pine Cone Press used to have a simple white base for this card and we used to glue them together to make fold out cards that went up and down and all kinds of fun ways.  It's fun to use old ideas new ways and with new papers.  You never know how cute it will come out.

Have a really nice day.... Teresa

The Amazing Paper Grace February Die of the Month Blog Hop

The February Die of the Month is an interactive card, but don't be fooled, the pieces and parts assemble to make lovely normal cards and ensembles.  We all love interactive cards too and this one is going to be addicting to open.  Becca designed a slightly elegant version of a shutter card that you can dress it up and dress it down to your heart's desire.  Say hello to The Elegant Reveal Shutter Card.

Today our APG team is hopping to give you additional ideas on how to use the dies that come in the set.  There are several gorgeous inlay dies and a nested set of dies that create apertures or create frames.  Just imagine making a box or a basket.  We've even talked about creating a candle or a votive holder!  The dies are perfect for the cover of any card but think about using the reveal sliders on top of a box.  Here's to hoping you find some time to grab the dies and manage to sit down and play.

Here are the dies included in the set:

My Projects Today are:

I just adore this new interactive card die and i know it will be a really fun set to have to make lots of cards for this new year ahead.   The interactive insides that you see below can be used on their own or you can make them as intended with that cute slide out secret center to put something fun.

The papers i used are from Stamperie and they have such beautiful colors and patterns that worked perfectly for my card.  I used one of the tags for the center pop out to frame it and then just worked out from there.  The intricate pieces on the side can be used alone or stacked to make a back round on a card.  Or imagine using your favorite embossing powders to create a beautiful one of a kind creation to keep or send to a friend.  Trust me you are really going to have fun with this.....

And to use the pieces in another way I created this cute little mini pail and i went completely the other way in colors.  This is for a friend so i wanted to make it super cute and feminine.  I used the tag that comes in the set for my sentiment on a small band that went around the pail and also the decorative piece to finish the back side of it.  These papers are from Mintay :) so very cute aren't they.

And finally for the top i fussy cut some of the flowers out of the paper and added some handmade flowers from the DOM set that i cut out of the paper to match.   I am going to have to say this was really fun to do!

Happy Birthday with Love Card

Happy Thursday and thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have all had a great week so far, i have been catching up with all my crafty things and doing a bit of reorganizing for spring to get ready for all the new dies that Becca is releasing.  It's going to be Amazing for sure.

Today my card that i am sharing with all of you is a mixed layered card using 2 of the brand new dies just released from the Mini album set and an older die that is one of my favorites from the Vintage Treasures line called Cannetille Rectangle.  I mixed colors so that you can really see all the lacy details in each of the layers and added a simple oval with a stamped sentiment for a birthday card i need coming up soon.  

Here are the dies so that you can see all the gorgeous pieces in each of them.

I love that this one has a heart and a sentiment in them.  They mix so nice with the other dies.

And here is a closeup so that you can see how pretty all of it looks together.  Sometimes you make something and just sit back and say wow i really like that.  This is one of those cards for me.  I love Becca's dies and how pretty they make up into cards and other things.  

I hope you have a chance to stop over to the Spellbinders store and see what's new and try a few.  You are going to love working with them for all your holiday projects coming up.  
Have a really wonderful week and be sure and check back for more mini book inspiration !!

You are loved envelope mini book

I hope you had a fun day yesterday with Superbowl ( Yay my team won :) and had lots of yummy things to eat.  Or---- like me you got a few crafty things done early and did both of them.  How fun was that. 

Today i have another share for a mini book idea that is one of my all time favorites.  I did this one for a trip to Disneyland once and thought how fun it would be for Valentines to add love coupons and maybe a few fun gift cards for ice cream and the movies.  It's easy to make and you can do them in all kinds of themes... even wedding and babies would be fun books to make.

For my book i used 3 of Beccas dies from the last collection and did some layering on the front which was really fun to do.  I started with the Candlewick Rectangle for the back and over that i added the Candlewick Petticoats and tucked under the bottom i added a piece of the white Candlewick Doily Border.  It all went together so pretty and the papers really show them off.

And here you can see the envelopes on the inside.  You simply use as many as you like and glue them together with the flaps so that they can fold and then have fun decorating each of them on the fronts and the backs.  I used a new paper line from Echo Park with the stickers to make it go quick.  For my decorative piece on the bottom of each i added a cut/embossed piece of white Candlewick Doily Border.  It makes it so pretty and feminine.

And here is the inside of the book with a few of the envelope fold outs so that you can see them.  I used 6 envelopes on mine and could have used more but this is all i had time for so it worked out great.

To make the outside cover of the book you simple measure the piece of 12x12 to the envelopes stacked up with a ruler and then score it on a Scor-pal and fold it over the insides.  And don't forget to leave a flap to close it.   I used a small piece of velcro to close my book and keep everything all tucked up good inside.

I hope i inspired you to get out some fun papers from your stash and grab a few dies and make something fun.  Have a really special week ... Hugs... Teresa

Mr and Mrs Wedding Card

Hi friends and it's so nice that you came and dropped by for another idea using Becca's new Mini Book dies this week.   My wedding card that i am sharing today was fun and really easy to make and I actually only used one of the new dies for it and another that i had in my stash that is a favorite.

This new die is called "Double Halo Oval Etched Die"  and is soon becoming one of my favorites simply because of the oval shape and the gorgeous details that it has on it.  You can each layer by themselves or create something together.   I love that you can stamp inside of it really easy and it's also great for making cards to layer fussy cut images or ephemera bits that you might have laying around in your paper stash.  Those are my favorites and it's nice to make up alot of cards and keep them in a box handy to give out when you need them. Guess i better get started for the new year!!

A couple of weeks ago I went to a new scrapbook store (Frank Garcia's Studio) close to where i live and found some brand new papers to have a go with and really had some fun.  There is lots of things that you can fussy cut with this line by Karola so i kept the base simple and used the large oval over a large Hemstitch Oval vellum piece and then layered the flowers and other pretty little bits on top.

I guess i can't say enough about all these dies and hope that you had the chance to see all of them on our hop this last week and if not you can check them all out here <<<<

Guess i better go and get crafty on some more new inspiration for you,
Have a wonderful crafty day--- Teresa

Just Married Wedding Mini Album

Hi everyone and happy Sunday to all of you.  I hope you had the chance to hop with us this last week and for the weeks ahead we will be sharing more Amazing Paper Grace inspiration with these beautiful new dies that Becca designed from all of our APG team.  

Today i have another mini album to share with you that is really quick and easy to make and you can have as many pages as you want since it is a tag album.  

For all my pages of my album i used this new Grand Crested Tower die!

I cut 6 panels of the die with the backround and glued them all together and then i added lots of pictures and fun little bits from the paper line that i used.

For the punched area at the top i reinforced it with a piece from one of the other dies so that it would be more stable.  And on the back of each of them i created a small pocket that i can add more pictures and also my journaling.  This was super easy to create and would be a great wedding gift !!

I also used this die on the front to mix in.  I used the heart side and then fussy cut the wedding cake piece to pop up over it.  I so love the beautiful details in this.

And here you can see all the pages layed out for you.  Each of them looks just slightly different because i used a different paper for each of them that went with the picture i used.

And lastly here you can see on the left the little pocket pages that i made.  There were so many wonderful memories of that special day and since i do alot of Ancestry i want to make sure i share it so that 100 years from now they know the story too.  I just love what i do :)

Thank you so much and be sure and stop back for alot more ideas using these dies.  You are going to love these and if you make cards.... they are also just as amazing to work with :)

Hugs and Smiles----- Teresa
