CraftWell DT: Halloween and Dia de los Muertos Crafts

 






 Dear Scrappers,


This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made threee different crafts to celbrate Halloween and Dia de los Muertos:

For Halloween, I made these candle holders using Spellbinder diea and my SNAP:


note: for the Volleyball, I cut out one of the cats from the dies cut and replaced with a BuBunny die instead. I gave that cancle holder to my daughter's team coach.

Every year, I go to a friend's house to celebrate Halloween and we bring our children Trick or Treating, however, with COVID, we decided to send each other goody bags with candy to each family:



Thus, I made some tags using an spellbinder treatbag tag die, and many of the Crafty Chica dia de los muertos stamps and dies, using my Crafty Chica printed paper pad and my SNAP. 

I also fussy cut some of stamped images from Paper Wings, some die cuts from Fun Stamper Journey (triangle banners), and HeroArts (banners):


I ended up making more than 30 tags. Here are some examples:

Front and back:




Front on the L side and back on the R side:



I also made some Dia de los Muertos cards for some friends of mine using my left over die cuts and fussy cuts:




October was a very stressful and bussy month. So, what do I do when I need to relieve stress?

CRAFT!!!!

CraftWell DT: Virgen del Valle Magnet

 




Dear Scrappers,

This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a frame for a picture magnet from a painting of mine:


I took the picture magnet and added to white card stock. In the back I added a print out of Our Lady of the Valley story:


The frame is double sided, so that the nice gold foiled frame could accent better the story in the back as well.

I made the frame out of die cuts from the Tattered Lace Column set dies (one of my favorites) using my SNAP machine while at work. I made this frame picture magnet for one of my boses for his birthday.




I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy, though elegant project and please make sure to visit  Craftwell for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy October,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

DT: Nurse’s Office Door Sign

 




Dear Scrappers,

This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to use my SNAP to create a door sign for my work:


I got some ideas from Pinterest, but decided to use flowers instead of stars to make it my own.

I wanted to continue the same design I used for my sanitation stations. Thus, I cut letters and Tiles from DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, using the BoBunny larger alpha dies and Tattered Lace dies.

Here are some of the dies and the paper pack I used:


I cut a 7.5 x 7.5 in square out of chalk board paper. I cut 3 pieces (7 x 2 in.) of gold thick card stock to make the frames for the word tiles. For the smaller tiles, I cut 6 DCWV paper rectangles (3 x 1.5 in.) to frame the 2.75 x 1.25 in. black chalk board paper. I glued all frame titles uding double side tape to the big chalk board square leaving an upper border to add my title.

Then, I cut flowers, leaves, and the alpha die cuts using my SNAP machine. 


Then, I trimmed 2 cards from the cards printed paper to die cut my smilly face in gold and the (CraftWell) paper clip heart. I glued them together and glued it to a wooden cloth pin to make my sign marker.


Later, I realized that I should have glued the die cuts separated and on both side of the cloth pin, so remedied that by die cutting an arrow from the left over card and adding touches of black with a marker to emphazise the arrow and I added more black aound the heart (not shown), the smilly face. I paper pieced a nurse's hat and colored the cross with red gel pen:



Here some closer views of the finished door sign:


Again, I was able to use my SNAP machine while at work and now I have a nice sign to meke me smile while I'm working.


I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit Craftwell for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy September,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

DT: Sanitation Stations



Dear Scrappers,

This is my latest post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to use my SNAP to create titles and signs for 5 sanitation stations for my work:

I used dollar store containers and chalk board signs/ tags. I cut letters from DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, using the BoBunny larger alpha dies and TH Sizzix dies. Then, I run the words stuck backwards and upside down through my Xyron sticker maker and glued the words to the chalkboard tags:


I cut some monograms too and added them to the mini chalk board signs. I didn't have much time to finish the 5 stations, so I didn't search for medical related dies to decorate further my stations. I will for sure better this project soon.

The end result is cute and very practical. It was a nice project to do quickly using my SNAP machine while at work.


I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit CraftWell for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy Back to School

DT: Happy Birthday Card

 



Dear Scrappers,

This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I decided to recycle a stamped image I made for a previous post and make it a card for a friend:


I had heat embossed the bluebonnet image on watercolor paper and used water colors to paint it. Now I used the colored image and mounted on a blank card using 3D dots.

Here are the materials I used and a short tutorial:





This is the final card:


and the inside:


A closer look to the layered die-cut frame:


I hope you enjoyed my daughter's creation and please make sure to visit Craftwell for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy July and stay safe from this pandemic.

DT: Wonderful card by a juinior crafter


Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, my daughter helped me make a card for a friend's birthday. My daughter just became 11yo and is a great crafter. She likes to craft with me, but as much on her own ;-(

She used some DCWV Unicorns and Rainbows paper, the "wonderful" tag die from Craftwell, some tape runner, some ribbon, and some Recollection stamps using her PowderPuff chalk inks:


The back of her card:


 The inside of the card:


 Here, I will let her pictures tell the story:


She came up with her card design and decided that it needed something else inside, so she stamped a peacock image using two PowderPuff inks at the same time:


She then wrote her sentiment and signed her card.

She was super quick and efficient using the SNAP diecutting machine. I will be introducing more paper crafting during the summer and will share with you her progress.

I will post in the following weeks the card I made.


I hope you enjoyed my daughter's creation and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy July and stay safe from this pandemic.
