CraftWell DT: Pumpkin Patch Time


 Dear Scrappers,

This is my post for CraftWell for next week, but I’ll post it here first,

For this project, I decided to finally finish decorating a shaker album kit from ClearScraps to house some pictures from last year's pumpkin patch at the Atonement Academy (part of the AHG troop #TX0814 fundraiser):

I started this album following Clear Scraps instructions about staining the wooden pieces and adding the papers, as well as assembling the shaker cover. Then, I diverted by adding other elements and modifying the included stickers from Carta Bella to spell out Patch in my banner, which I hanged from a vine ribbon. The ribbon, pearl  cabochons, and metal leaves are part of a 3D embellishments box (in the top middle of the collage picture).

Materials (stickers are part of the Clear Scraps kit):


I used my SNAP to die cut some pumpkins as embellishments and to trim the pictures using some banners  and pumpkins dies:


Here some close up pictures of the cover: 



and an example of the inside pages (more pages to come yet):


The shaped pictures don't need extra mats and the colorful Carta Bella papers are a perfect background:

DT: Belle Card



 Dear Scrappers,

I'm sharing my post for Craftwell:
I made a Disney card to go with my latest mini-album



 and this is the inside:


I bought this Disney Princess dies, sentiment stamps, and coordinated background cardstock bundle a while ago from Create and Craft. They are perfect to make any quick and easy card for a little (big) girl.

In short, I used the printed card stock with Belle and the books, which coordinates perfectly with the die, and cut it out using my SNAP for the mini-album project. I used one of those left-over cuts for making this card, by cutting the printed cardstock to fit in my card. I stamped the sentiment using HeroStamps ink and I also stamped the background for the inside of the card, stamping another sentiment in top. For extra spunk, I added rhinestones from Queen & Co and popped up the Belle die cut and the stamped sentiment. Super easy...



Here is a picture of the completed mini-album: 



For more pictures and a tutorial, please make sure to my post and my blog for further ideas:

DT: Gift Tags/Bookmarks for the teachers




Dear Scrappers,

This is my post for Craftwell:
I made some gift tags for the chocolates, I gifted to my kids teachers and wanted to share them with you:



These gift tags are very sturdy and could be use as bookmarks too. I used "Thanks" sentiment stamp from Sizzix, its complimenting circle die, and some religious sentiments dies and doilies from BoBunny for the  bookmark. I also used some Clear Scraps acrylic angel shapes, I had previously alcohol inked for some of the tags/ bookmarks, and decorated them similarly to the circle tags. For some of the tags, I also used shipboard stickers from BoBunny (see the "dream big" tag).


I used my CutNBoss for cutting out the circle tags, sentiments and dollies. I also used some leftover gold foiled printed papers and gold cardstock to cut out the circle tags, the doilies and the sentiments.

Here you can see the angel tags in better detail:



I hope you enjoyed these super easy to make tags/bookmarks.
