Our December Story 2015, Day 19, Part 2

This is an add on part to Day 19 of Our December Story 2015.

I used Design I because its a simple addition of just something extra we did that day.

I have a Video of the completed layout on my You Tube Chanel, CLICK HERE to see it.

 I am using one sheet of a 6X6 paper pad more most of the pattern paper, the blue with white snowflakes.

I am using some thin black and brown alpha stickers, the brown still look alot like black.

Some fun different snow flake embellishments.
 All done, this is Alexis finished snow flake.

I made the pattern into a banner.

Finished card.
 Close up.
 I did the same with Alivias snow flake picture just using a different snow flake embellishment.
Close up of the embellishment cluster.
 Some of the supplies for this card.

All the photos are 4X4 for this design.


 Finished card.
 The black with blue snow flake pattern is an old Stampin Up card.

I rounded the corners and added some silver thread behind a 2 1/2 inch circle punch.

 Attaching the thread with some adhesive and then using dimensional's on the back of the circle.
Finished card that just says " Micheals Craft ".
 I tried to stay with a snowflake theme because this was a snowflake wooden craft.
 Brought in some more silver thread and more word phrase stickers.
 This is the finished card for this pocket.
Close up for this card, again more snowflakes and word stickers.

Cardz TV Christmas in July Challenge #3

I decided to try something new with this Cardz TV Challenge, its a Christmas in July one basicly anything goes just include Christmas.

Would you like to play along CLICK HERE.

Would you like to see the card spinning in action, Visit my Face Book Page,  CLICK HERE.


 Layeing out my design, it came together more quickly then I thought.
I cut a 4 by 5 inch panel from Crumb Cake card stock.
 I also alligned the Oval die and card stock below the embossing folder to try and get as close to the center as possible.

I think it turned out pretty good.

I then embossed the panel.
 I used some Wood Veneer Reinder and Liquid Platinum embossing powder along with Versa Mark ink.
 Make sure you have two pieces per card and emboss the right sides because they will be lined up in the end.

I used an old box to emboss the reindeer's it makes it alot easier.
 I used a strong double sided tape along with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere two strands of gold thread.

The length needs to be extra on the top and bottom to create the spinning mechanisum.
 A pieced of strong double sided adhesive down then the string, pulled tight.

Anouther piece on top of that.
 Tombow Mono Liquid Glue around the rest of the panel.
All done

 I added a sentiment embossed with the same powder and banner ends.
 Side view.
Anouther side view.

Garden Page July 8th 2017

I found some Paper Piercing templates from Fiskars on clearance at Hobby Lobby and they had flowers and the little one was perfect to go with a Project Life or Pocket Style page for one of my Gardening layouts.

 I am using some 110 Pound White card stock and a 3X4 die.

I taped it with some painters tape to a piercing mat that was also on clearance from Hobby Lobby.
 Begin to punch in the holes that are on the template.
 I then look threw my alphas to find a black thin set to spell out the word bloom.

I am adding it to the card over wax paper to find placement of the other two flowers.
 I make a little pencil line template to help me keep the flower going around the word.
 Just double checking to make sure the third flower will work.
 And again after I finish punching the third flower.
 Using three strands of embordery floss and Washi Tape to adhere it to the back.
 Start with the outline first.

I did refer to the piercing mat for referance a few times.
 This part is totaly up to you.

I just did some crossed lines to fill it out.

The sky is the limit, no right or wrong.
 The center with again three strands of thread is easier.

I go in  a bit of a star pattern.
 I then go around the circle to fill it out and give some definition.
 All done and I LOVE it.
 Using my T-Squared ruler to try and attempt to get the "bloom" straight.
 I am a sucker for wood grain paper and had it layeing around a figured out it was perfect.

I used the X-ACTO punch to round the corners.
 I typed my journaling on my phone and sent it to my computer which houses Heavy Weight White card stock.

Cut into strips.
Added a doilie to add some interest and texture and fill in the card.
This is a photo over head of the plant in the pot.

Printed 4X6.
 Here is the filler card and flower blooms in size 3X4.
 I used a golden yellow chip board alpha sticker for my date.
 Close up.
