Project Tutorial


Hello and welcome to episode 12 of #TipsandTricks Tuesday! 

After cutting images from one piece of 12×12 Bird Ballad DSP I was left with the outside part remaining which consisted mainly of part-images.  As this DSP is too beautiful to wast I decided to do a floating style card!

Directions and Measurements:

The card base measures 6×6″ square and I decided on Pool party as this is one of the co-ordinating colours to match this DSP.

The stamping (top layer) is whisper white and measures 5 7/8″ squared.

How I made the card is firstly I laid out all of my half cut images (all of which have at least one straight edge) to gauge the size of the card needed.

I then played around with their placement on the white layer to see if it was a nice set up. 

At this point I also gauged where I would have some blank space to stamp.

I stamped three different but co-ordinating sentiments (from the co-ordinating stamp set free as a bird) in these spaces then adhered the DSP images using both dimensionals and mini-dimensionals.

Ta da! Easy Peasy! Just look how stunning and elegant this card is – be sure to watch my tutorial further down this page 🙂

#TipsandTricks Tuesday – Episode 8 – Emboss your own Card Background

Welcome to another episode of Tuesday’s #TipsandTricks.

IMG_20190502_154626_wm.jpg

In this YouTube Tutorial I show you how you can easily make your own embossed backgrounds using the Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder from Stampin’ Up!

I decided to use the Love What You Do Stamp set again as I just love it!  I used Whisper white as the card base, Basic Black as the embossing layer and whisper white again for the stamping layer.  To keep the card monotone I used Tuxedo Black for my stamped images and sentiments.

Links to all products are further down this page.

When I finished the card, I felt it needed a little bit of subtle bling so added some clear epoxy droplet shapes 🙂

#TipsandTricks Tuesday – Episode 7 – Stamp full size storage cases

Welcome to another episode of Tuesday’s #TipsandTricks.

Fabulous Easy Storage Solution!

As you know, some products are retiring and that includes DSPs that form part of those suites.

Well I didn’t want to throw mine away but I did need to sort out my DSP drawer.  Now I normally store my 12×12 DSP and papers in a plastic record sleep and keep them flat.  So, with space running out in my craft area I decided to cut up the remaining bits of my DSP packs and store them in these awesome cases.  Now, you can store pens, blends, glue, adhesives, anything really in these – I know I do 🙂

Want some of these? they are always so popular which means stock depletes quickly… get yours today as they are in stock.

Gorgeous #RAK present set made for a crafty friend #happymail

Happy Friday everyone! You may remember the lovely #rak that I received the other week and I published a post about it on Wednesday there – well, I managed to set some time aside to make this gorgeous gift set to return the random act of kindess that was sent to me 🙂

Now I’ve used the gorgeous Petal Promenade DSP, I’ve had mine a while, however, maybe you have just recently purchased as part of the sale-a-bration promotion which has now ended. I’ve also used the free doilies as well as blackberry bliss cardstock and ink. Now by the time this blog is published my friend will have already received her package so no surprises are being spoilt 🙂

Tuesdays #TipsandTricks – Episode 3: Fussy Cutting incorporating the Scan N Cut

Welcome to Episode 3 of Tuesday’s #TipsandTricks Series with Smiths Crafty Creations.

photocollage_20193616271299.jpg

In this episode I am showing you a different way to fussy cut those gorgeous DSP images incorporating the Scan n Cut.  Now this took only three minutes to cut nearly a whole sheet of images, that’s around 3 minutes less than it would take me to cut by hand!

As this month’s paper share is the How Sweet it is DSP I thought it very fitting to cut out some extras from my own stash of DSP, and throw them in with the papershares as a little thank you to my customers 🙂

Now, do you remember me talking about my plans to start project suite craft kits within the next few weeks?  Well let me recap for you, packs will be ordered and paid for upfront by the 14th of each month, I then order stock according to demand, sort out all the kits and ship them to you by the end of that month.

What will the kit include?

  • Designer Series Paper – size 6″ x 6″
  • Co-ordinating Card Stock
  • One Yard of Co-ordinating Ribbon
  • Co-ordinating Embellishments
  • Other co-ordinating items depending on theme for the kit
  • Option to buy co-ordinating stamp set also (option 2 price tbc)

As this will take some planning I haven’t yet calculated a cost but please keep checking back for more news about this.

Right back to the Tips and Tricks Video (I’m such a natter)…

Check out my youtube video to find out exactly how I cut these images.  As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more!

Keep tuned for more #TipsandTricks on a Tuesday!
