Card Makin' Weds-Happy Birthday!

Hey Guys! Happy Wednesday! Only two more days after this and its the weekend! So I hope your having a pretty good week, It's super cold here. But its suppose to warm up this weekend so it all good! 

But let's jump right into today's post! 
I made this card yesterday and It ALL came to me as I was itching to make a card yesterday morning! I LOVE this card! You really should watch the Video to see how it was made and how awesome it is.
Click HERE to watch on Youtube (You will see it a lot better!)

Here's what you will need : 

Card base 4-1/2 by 11 before scored (4-1/2 by 5-1/2 scored in the middle at 5-1/2)
Autherntique paper Pack 
Random Hobby Lobby stamp set 
Zing Embossing powder 
White Gel pen 
Adhesive of your choice 
Embossing Pad 
Fiskers border Punch 

After you go around the craft room and gathered all the Supplies lets get started! 

1. Score your card base at 5-1/2 
2. Cut your layer paper 3-1/2 by 5-1/2 (This is the white paper you see on my card)
3. Take your fiskers border punch and punch about 6 inches long (gives you room to cut off the edges of the layer) 
4. Attach the border punch to the side of the layer using adhesive 
5. Put your layer paper down with your border on the side down to your card base, Make sure its all even around all four edges! 
6. Stamp with black ink your Candles stamp, Then Color with your choice of marker/Colored Pencils
7. Stamp the happy Birthday with embossing ink, Then take the embossing powder over it. It's nice to have a scratch paper for all the excess Embossing powder to go. 
8. I cut a banner out of the paper pack with a par of scissors, You can do the same or if you don't have to paper pack get creative! I'm sure theres something in your craft room that will work :) 
9. Take your Jell Pen and make tick lines around the edges of the card base, Its a great affect to really pull the card together! 

Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial! 

Hope you all have a GREAT Week and see you back here Friday for a really awesome DIY Project!

Card Making Wednesday

Hey Everyone! 

Today I am so thankful to be guest designing for Card Making Wednesday for Tanner! I have 2 cards to share with you today! Last night I pulled out my scarps and made lots of cards, I am going to share 2 with you today, and the rest another day! It was so fun using scraps, and I actually really like a lot of them! 

This first card was SOOOO simple! I cut thin 4" strips and adhered them to a piece of printer paper, stamped my sentiment on the top one, and added some beige twine with a "bow". I then stamped some hearts in pale ochre Archival ink down the left side! 

This second card is also quite basic! (if you didn't know I am a very simple card maker!)
If you look closely you can see, I used a technique Tanner shared in this awesome video HERE

 Thanks for joining us today and Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

DIY Friday, Christmas Box!

Hey Everybody! I really love this DIY Friday video/Post! It's really fun and I enjoyed it a lot! 

In this video I'm going to show you how to make a really simple box to store your Holiday cards for the season. 

What you will need : 
-Scoring board ( I used a Martha Stewart one)
-(2) 12x12 sheets of Card-stock
-Embellishments (Only if you want to decorate your box!)

After you've gathered your items, Let's get Started! 
1. Score your first sheet of paper at 3in and score at 9in 
2. Turn the paper and score the paper again at 3in by 9in 
3 Take the second piece of paper and score at 3in by 9x1/8in 
4. Turn the second sheet of paper and score at 3in by 9x1/8in
5.Take your scissors and cut a line from each corner of BOTH sheets of paper, Make sure to stay on the scored lines! 
5. Put adhesive on the flaps of where you cut, and start making your box stand up.You will have to do this to both sheets of paper, then you will have two half boxes! 
6. You can decorate your top part of your box or leave it blank, Your choice! 
7.That's it! Enjoy your box :D 

I Love this finished project! :)

Canvas Home Decor - DIY Friday!

Hey Everyone! Today for DIY Friday, I've Decided to put paper on Canvas. Now when I thought of the idea, It didn't sound fun at all, BUT believe me, It is TONS of fun!!! :D I will be doing these a lot because there so easy to do if you have the right steps, Which I show in the video below. 

What you will need for this project : 
- Canvas (I used a 10x10 Canvas Corp Canvas)
- Mod Podge of your choice 
-Pattern paper of your choice 
-Sponge Brush for applying the mod podge! 

With those four simple things you are ready to get started making this! 

First, Take the mod Podge and cover your canvas. 
Second, take the paper and put it face down, With the Pattern facing the table. 
Third, take the canvas and put on top of the paper (Make sure its lined up!) and apply FIRM pressure! That is the best way to not get air bubbles 
Lastly,  Put One or two coats of mod podge on the paper to give it that great finish! :) 

Now you can make a couple of them for a Quick Christmas gift, Decoration around the house, The possibilities are endless! 

Enjoy the video :
