Spring Flowers Card


Happy Wednesday! I'm excited to share with you my 60 second Spring Flowers Card that I created for Graphic 45's blog. Although it can be challenging to create a project within 60 second, Graphic 45's products are perfect for achieving these types of projects.  So, by using the Floral Shoppe Collection, and a ATC Black Policy Envelope, I was able to create this simple but quick and pretty card, easy for anyone to recreate at home and perfect for any occasion. I hope that you'll enjoy my video tutorial of my Spring Flowers Card as well as a few tips and tricks.


Tip: Use a ATC tag to add some extra interest in amongst the patterned papers.


Tip: To quickly decorate the front of a card, use pre-made flowers.

A Way With Words Release Day - Thank You Card

It's a new release day over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, featuring Suzanne Cannon's A Way With Words new dies and stamp release. 

For my project, I featured the new Rosebud Wreath & Elements die and the Thank You 2 die, to create this pretty Thank You card. 


To start, die cut all the Wreath from the Rosebud Wreath & Elements from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the wreath using Black Soot Distress Ink.


From the same die, die cut the single rosebuds with matching overlay four times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over each of the rosebud pieces.


Continuing with the same die, die cut the set of three rosebuds four times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Spun Sugar Distress Ink over each of the rosebuds.


The last element you'll need to die cut from the Rosebud Wreath & Elements die is the leaf circle. Die cut the leaf circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaf circle.


Die cut the Thank You 2 die, out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Spun Sugar Distress Ink over the entire surface of the word.


Take out the 4 1/4" and 4 3/4" Stitched Circles. Die cut the 4 1/4" stitched circle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the 4 3/4" stitched circle out of another patterned paper. Ink the edges of the circles using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


Choose two more coordinating patterned papers that match your circles. Cut one of the patterned papers to 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Cut the other patterned paper to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Ink the edges of the patterned papers using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


Adhere the 5 1/4" patterned paper piece to the 5 1/2" patterned paper piece. Adhere the 4 1/4" stitched circle to the 4 3/4" stitched circle. Foam square the 4 3/4" stitched circle to the middle of the 5 1/4" patterned paper piece.


Adhere the solid set of three rosebuds in behind the each of the rosebuds on the frame. Adhere the frame to the stitched circles.


Adhere the leaf circle to the middle of the 4 1/4" stitched circle. Adhere the Thank You sentiment to the middle of the leaf circle.


Adhere a single rosebud overlay to a single plain rosebud. Repeat this for the other three. Adhere two of the rosebuds together and repeat for the other two. Foam square one set of rosebuds to the top left hand side of the T. Foam square the other set of rosebuds to the bottom right hand side of the you. 


Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/4" x 11 1/2", score at 5 1/4". Adhere the card front to the card base.

Farewell Post on Graphic 45 - Sun Kissed Layout


I'm up on Graphic 45's blog today and this is a bittersweet post as this is my last project for Graphic 45. There are no words to express how much I enjoyed these last two years designing for Graphic 45. Thank you to Diane, Charee, Aimee and Jeff for this amazing opportunity.

With just coming back from the beach, I had the perfect photo just waiting to be scrapbooked. So with the photo in one hand and the Sun Kissed collection in the other hand, I set off to create my Sun Kissed Scrapbook Layout.


Tip: I love to mix paper flowers in amongst the fussy cut images.


Tip: Adhere the banners from the collection onto a piece of twine and then they can be adhered where ever on your layout.



For a full tutorial on how I created my Sun Kissed Layout as well as some more photos of my project, some tips & tricks and a Snapguide tutorial, you'll want to stop by Graphic 45's blog
