Birthday Gift Bag with ATCs

Hey everybody! Happy Friday to you all! My new DT gig with the ScrapbookingStore is in full swing and I’m so loving the versatility of the papers and the embellishment upgrades in this month’s scrapbook kit! While the collection is beach-themed, I created a fun gift bag with a striped paper from the kit which will be used for a birthday. That’s what I mean by versatile! I’m wrapping up August’s shares with this gift bag along with three artist trading coins embellished with stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet to tuck into the gift bag!

Using the Lawn Fawn Goody Bag die from my stash, I cut the front and back pieces of the gift bag from a red and white striped pattern paper in the kit and assembled it.

I embellished the front of the gift bag with a stitched banner (cut from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Eris cardstock using the JustRite Stitched A2 Banners and Rectangles die set) and quite a few stickers, a clothespin, and a yellow sun clip from the embellishment upgrades. I also added some gemstones which completed the front.

Here are few more shots of the gift bag from different angles.

To make the artist trading coins that I tucked into the gift bag, I punched 2-1/2” circles from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and embellished them with CutCardStock Pop Tone Sweet Tooth and Cotton Candy cardstock, American Crafts POW Rouge Glitter Paper, bling, and stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet.

Vacation Time mini slimline

Hi everyone! The fun continues creating ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration projects with the awesome variety of papers and coordinating stickers along with the embellishment upgrades in this month’s scrapbook kit! Have I mentioned how much I’m loving this new DT gig?! Today’s share is a fun vacation mini slimline card! Several friends are vacationing this summer at beaches in various locations and I thought it would be fun to create a card as a send-off to a beach vacation!

I cut a 3-1/2” x 6” mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and used a woodgrain-look patterned paper from the kit as the background. I added a paper strip down the left side, stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet, and a few stickers from the upgrade sticker sheet.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a paper strip, stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet, and die cut alphas. I layered the panel on green patterned paper from the kit which completed the card.

And one more look… such a fun card, and I totally love the little clothesline with beach attire hanging from it!

Summer Fun ATCs

Hey everybody! I’m loving this new DT gig with the ScrapbookingStore and I’m still having a blast creating inspiration projects with this month’s scrapbook kit! Love all the beach-themed prints and colors of the papers in this collection along with the coordinating stickers! I have a fun set of six Summer Fun artist trading cards to share with you today… you know how I love me some ATCs and you know I don’t trade ’em! These babies are going in my collection, lol!

I cut ATC card bases (measuring 2-1/2” x 3-1/2”) from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the corners of each. I picked out six different papers from the kit for the backgrounds and embellished each one with stickers from the included sticker sheet along with paper strips, washi tape and bling from my stash. These were so stinkin’ fun!

And one more peek at the set… so happy with how these turned out! The fun thing about working with kits is that everything coordinates!

Surf’s Up!

8/13/22 Top 3 at Inkspirational Challenges!

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great week! I mentioned in my post yesterday that I joined the design team for the ScrapbookingStore which boasts a FABulous monthly scrapbook kit subscription club that’s very affordable. The August kit is beach-themed and I’ve had the best time creating with it! I’m sharing a fun surf card today… you know how I love creating little scenes and I felt like a ride along the beach headed to the waves to go surfing was in order!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. I cut a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and covered it with Eyelet Outlet wide sky and wide water washi tape and CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft Paper to get the scene started.

I added a land line in the distance that I hand-cut from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock, an Eyelet Outlet palm tree brad, and a yellow sun clip from the kit upgrades which I attached with a harlequin patterned brad from my stash. I added the beach bug and sentiment stickers from the sticker sheet included in the kit (sentiment popped up on foam squares) to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from patterned paper in the kit and embellished it with sentiment and surf board stickers from the sticker sheet included in the kit.

And one more peek… super happy with how this turned out! Sure brings back some fun memories – I didn’t surf but we used to drive up and down one of our semi-local beaches back in the day (late 70s) when it was allowed! ;)

Summer Sandal

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week and you’re surviving this heat… I sure am ready for some cooler weather! I’m delighted to share that I’ve been invited to join the design team for the ScrapbookingStore which boasts a monthly scrapbook kit subscription club, and I’m thrilled beyond words! I love kits and there are so many different kinds of projects that can be created with these collections. This month’s kit is beach-themed and features papers in pretty summery colors and patterns along with coordinating stickers and optional upgraded embellishments. I’m excited to share a summer sandal, one of several debut DT inspiration projects!

Using my flip flop template, I cut the midsole from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, the insole and straps from striped paper, and the sole and another set of straps (adhered to the underside of the striped paper straps) from beach ball paper in the kit. I used a Darice Chevron embossing folder and ran the sole through my Big Shot for a little texture like a real shoe sole. I adhered the pieces together and added a beach ball embellishment created with 1”, 1-1/4” and 1-1/2” circle punches along with two strips of Eyelet Outlet white pearl bling on each strap.

Here are a couple more shots. I’m SO smitten… these papers made an adorable little sandal!
