Anything Goes with Amazing Paper Grace this week

This week it's anything goes with the designers for Amazing Paper Grace so i decided to take one of the new 3D Shapabilities Grand Cabinet Die set and make a kind of easel card.  To make it I just cut 2 pieces out for the front and back and kept the centers in and glued them just at the top.  Then i set it out and measured across of the two bottom tabs and cut 2 pieces of paper to fit across.  Be sure and pencil mark them first so that you can get the cut on the slant like i did.  And for the center i die cut just the middle and stamped one of my favorite stamps on it and colored it with chalks and colored pencils.  This is a real old one and it's always good to get those out again and give them some new life.  And to make the pinks pop more i die cut one of my favorite Spellbinders dies and layed it across under 

Here is a closer version of the sides.  I also added another pretty piece of pink to the inside just to finish it a little more and i made lots of gorgeous flowers with the Cinch and Go 3 die set for the top.  I just cut them out and spritzed them and then shaped them on a spongy mat.  It's fun and you get perfect colored flowers to match your projects that way.  

At the bottom i stamped Heartfelt Thanks with the Giving Occations stamp and die set and cut the ends to flag them.  It fit perfectly under the image and I think the person i am sending it too will really like it.  Sometimes it's fun to send a card that they can open up and put on a desk or table to enjoy for the next week or so.  And it has lots of pretty flowers for spring on it too.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and enjoy your Easter weekend!!

Just for you

What better way to start a Sat then by creating something gorgeous with dies from Becca Feeken.  I have a really pretty card to share that i created this week with her new "Tiered Rosettes Etched Die set".  I did alot of layering on this one so look close and see if you can see all the different dies i used.  It's so much fun to use them in different ways and i even used printed papers this time to make it so that the die cuts would look more marbled.  What do you think?  It really makes the details in the dies stand out.

So to begin with you will need the new Julie Nutting 6x6 paper pad from Prima and you are going to cut out a pink die cut from the "Emmeline Treillage" die.  Glue that on the pink and ivory printed paper and mat it with ivory like you see above.  Then you can make a pink 2" border out of the same paper using just the edge of the Tiered Rosettes die and glue that down the center.  And to make it even more fun i cut the XOXOXO border from the pink rose paper and put that down the center of the pink lacy border.  Then you can mat it with light pink card stock and then glue it on an ivory card.

And for the rosette i used that same pink rose paper and cut two of the folded rosette piece and created that pretty rosette under the bow.  They are super easy to make and you can layer them too.  But--- i wanted my card to be really lacy--- so i created a big fluffy bow in pink bias ribbon and added a gorgeous brad from Prima in the center.  

And to finish it off i cut/embossed a cute ivory tag stamped with For You from the "Graceful Tiny Tags set".  It's fun to layer all the beautiful lacy patterns and if you mix them in the just the right way it really works together nicely.  

And there is lots of other fun ideas you can do with this die so be sure and check the rest of the Amazing Paper Grace DT for other ideas this week.  Enjoy your weekend!!

GSLC Perpetual Calendar

How wonderful that you stopped over today to see what is new with our projects on the blog.  I found a really neat Perpectual Calendar in the store last week and thought i had just enough time to make one up for this new year to try and stay organized.  It's a super great set in that it contains the box and all the tags for the dates and months and weeks.  And all the chippies to put on them.  It's amazing and was a really fun set to create with.

And I just bought a brand new line of paper from Prima that was filled with antique roses in gorgeous shades of pink and rose so i thought it would be perfect to use.  Above you can see all the days of the week chippies and the tags that i used for each of them.  And the paper line comes with lots of other goodies and you could really have fun decorating each of them.  Be sure and stay flat though because you only have so much room in the file box for each of the tags.

I am going to search around for more fun things to add on my tags but this is a good start :)

 I used this water colored pink paper for the numbers.  I had a super cute die cut that the numbers fit on perfectly and did them in white so that the numbers would stand out more.

And here is a quick view of the box and the different compartments it has for the tags.  I painted the box a vintage white first and then i traced and cut pieces of the paper to fit on the outside and inside layers.  I adore cabbage roses so I am very happy with the way this came out.  I hope you like it too!

Have a wonderful weekend...   Teresa

A tisket, A tasket my favorite easter basket

This week is a really fun week for all the Amazing Paper Grace Design Team because we all get to design cute Easter Baskets to share with you.  Each of us used the new Grand Dome Dies and added our own twist to it and it's been so fun and we have lots of ideas for you.  My easter basket is super simple to make so that you can make up a heap of them for your family and friends.  And if you want to add extra flowers and ribbons than there is lots of space for it... just have fun!!

 To create my basket I used 2 shades of pink heavy weight card stock to cut the fronts and sides and then i measured all of it and created a really basic box for the bottom to glue the whole thing to.  It all took me about 20 minutes to do.  And now that you have the idea you can cut all the pieces at once and do a fun assembly line for everyone coming to your party this year.

With the Grand Dome die set you have a huge center cut out so to change it on mine i added a piece from the Filigree Veil die set and also the center cut in pink to fill it in a little bit more.  The two dies made a really pretty decorative front for my basket and helps to keep all the grass and goodies inside of it too.  And last but not least--- i had to add this adorable bow in light pink to finish it off.  Super simple and so easy to make.  

And just for an adhesive tip, double sided tape works the best to glue the fronts, sides and bottom together.  You don't have to wait for it to dry and you have them ready in minutes.

   Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure and check back for more fun ideas!!

Tea Lights and Tea Parties

Happy Saturday and for all of you that work all week--- it's time to get out all those crafty supplies today and make something pretty for someone you love.  Today i have a fun share that i call Tea Lights and Tea Parties.  It's one of my favorite projects that i did so far on Becca's team and it would be wonderful to do for Mother's Day this year.  You could customize the whole party and make it in her favorite colors with lots of flowers and lace.  How fun would that be to do!!  

Above i also created a place card and napkin holder to go with the tea lights.  I used a shaped Spellbinders die to make the place card base with the ivory and pink and then on top of it i added just the center of the Grand Dome 3D Card die set.  I also used it for the center of the napkin ring holder and added a pretty pink bow that i made from the Petite Double Bow die set.  The band of the napkin ring is made with just the bottom edge on the Ornamental Arch die set and i cut a band of pink to go underneath it to make the design really pop out like you can see peeking out of the napkin up above. 

  And below i have a quick tutorial on how to make the little tea lights for your tables.  It's super easy!

To make these you will need 2 sheets of 12X12 paper in ivory.  Die cut the arch 4X for the 4 sides.  Also die cut just the back arch out of vellum for each.   Glue the pieces on the the vellum and let them dry flat.  Also cut 4 pieces of ivory paper 3/4 of an inch wide and score them down the center with a ruler.
For the base cut a die cut that is bigger than 4 inches and create a box for the center of it with sides that are 3 3/4" wide and glue it down like you see on the right side of the picture above.

Now you fold the long pieces that you scored and glue them onto the corners of the tea light base.  Then add double stick tape to the inside of the arch on the bottom and sides and glue it to each side of the base.  Die cut pink bows for each of the sides and glue them together and let them dry.  When they are done you can glue them to the bottom of each tea light and add flowers.

This is such an inexpensive way to decorate for a holiday party and you can make them fancy or simple, it's totally up to you.  And you could give them away as hostess gifts.  

 Thank you so much for stopping by and i hope that you liked my project today!

Pretty in Pink Happy Birthday card

Hi and thanks so much for stopping by today to get a little die inspiration for the weekend.  Today i have a shaker card to share that i did with some of the newest release of the 3D Vignette dies.  All of our team gets to create one so i chose the Birthday die for mine because everyone needs birthday cards to give and you could do so much with this die set.

Here is a closeup of all the pretty goodies that i put in my shaker.  I found lots of glass glitter and sparkles and you can even put in sequins if you have them in your stash.  Anything goes for shakers :)

And making a shaker card is really easy.  You need the top Happy Birthday piece.  A circle of clear acetate to hold it all in.  A circle piece of pink card stock for the back and i cut the balloon layer in vellum to put in between.  You will also need small foam squares or dots and of course lots of glitter.

So first glue down the vellum layer to the back pink circle.  Then lay out the foam squares that you have cut in half very tightly around the circle to seal the edges and pop it up to put glitter in it.  Then add the sparkles inside (however much you want).  Glue the top piece to the clear circle of acetate like you see on the top left and when it is dry you can attach it to the bottom layer of your shaker card.  

And it should look like this.  So pretty and filled with beautiful shiny goodness when you shake it.

The flowers i also created with the Cinch and Go flowers 3 die set and the tiny ones are from the Petite Double Bow set.  It was really fun and now i am ready to give it to a very special family member for her birthday soon.

And just in case you need a supply list... here is mine :)
