Paper Bag Scrap Journal

Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Hey friends!  Chala here and I am back to share a fun idea to use up your scraps!  Today we will create a Scrap Paper Bag Journal.  All you will need is glue, scraps, ephemera and a paper bag.

I don’t know about you guys but I save all my paper bags…..and now I have a fun way to use them up.  I get mine from Sobey’s which are perfect because they are all brown with little to no writing on them.

The set up of this journal is a bit confusing to describe, so I will just include the video below for you to watch.

I hope you liked this video and it inspired you to use your scraps and unused craft supplies in a different way!  Here is a look at each of my page layouts:

Wishing you a crafty day!

Tuesday with Tara {take 283} Birthday Joy

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m bringing some birthday JOY to the blog with this cheerful, glittery card that just happens to be a perfect fit for my sister, whose birthday is this week!

I wanted to have as much glitter as possible on her card, so I decided to ink a fun rainbow in her favorite colors on a slimline card front and cover it up with glitter paste!  I’ve used three colors of Distress Oxide Ink for the blend on this card- Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet & Picked Raspberry.  I’ve used a fun Picket Fence Slimline ‘rainbows’ stencil and scripted a clear glitter paste over it (this is moonstone by Nuvo), and I love how it really accentuates the color blends on the card!

I’ve done a bit of mixing and matching again with the die cut sentiment on this card.  I wanted to keep it simple and bold by cutting in white and this mix of the scripty birthday and bold joy is really fun (especially since my sister’s name is Joy!).

I used the smaller slimline panel die from Picket Fence to cut out my background, which gave a nice crisp cut on this glittery piece.  I don’t know if this qualifies as a ‘clean and simple’ card, but I’m gonna claim CAS on this one. LOL.  I hope it makes the birthday girl smile!  (Love ya loads sister dear!)

Inky hugs,

Tara

Wine With Friends

Sunday, January 17th, 2021

Happy Saturday! It’s Deb here, for the Design Team. Normally, Saturday is a great time to enjoy wine with friends; unfortunately, these days we can’t do that. *sad face* It seems that right now, practically everywhere in the world is on lockdown, so today’s card is for the friends we can’t visit. Yes – that is the reason behind why I chose today’s word prompt to be ‘friends’ for the Scrap ‘N Stamp Daily Challenge!

JOIN THE DAILY CHALLENGE

If you haven’t already joined the Daily Challenge, I hope that you’ll consider it! Each day there is a new word prompt, to use as a jumping off point for your project. Simply share your card/project in the Facebook Challenge Page HERE, and use the hashtag #SNSCHALLENGE.  At the end of the month, one lucky participant is randomly chosen as the WINNER of a $50 GIFT CARD to Scrap ‘N Stamp! That’s a lot of goodness you can get for yourself.

WINE WITH FRIENDS

I’ve combined some ‘old with new’ for this card; a new Lavinia stencil, with an older MFT Shaker die.  It’s been so long since I’ve made a shaker card, I really had to think about it! Especially because I discovered that I had run out of the Shaker inserts for this die.

Wine with Friends

I like the stenciled background, and how the sequins appear to be bubbles, floating out of the glass! I figure it’s been a while since I’ve shared a glass with friends, so we should make it champagne, aka sparkly wine!

CARD DETAILS

I decided to make a slimline card, just because I like using the new Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System.  First, cut 2 pieces of white cardstock with the inside layer die. On one of the pieces, apply Worn Lipstick Distress Ink through the Lavinia Stamp Pods stencil.  Next, use the MFT Wine Glass Shaker Die to die cut the glass shape from the stenciled paper. Die cut another glass from dark pink cardstock.  Create your shaker, using the Gina K.  Clear Quartz Solid sequins. Use foam tape to attach the top stenciled/die cut layer to the 2nd piece of white cardstock. Now, attach the card front to a dark pink card base.

Next, stamp the sentiment from the MFT Good Time to Wine stamp set. I wanted to layer the sentiment on 2 strips, so stamped the first part, then masked off the stamp to ink the 2nd half of the sentiment. Next, die cut the 2 sentiments, and attach them to the card front with foam tape or squares.

Finally, glue on some extra sequins, for the ‘bubbles’.

In the photo above, you can see the added dimension of the sequins, shaker and sentiment strips. The stencil is a great way to add a background & more depth, without adding a physical layer.

SUPPLIES

Don’t forget to create and share your project for today’s prompt of ‘friends’, and/or any other day! Hopefully, we’ll all be able to have wine with friends in person, soon. Until then, have fun creating!
