Card of a Different Shape

I had some fun this week just playing with different shaped cards.  Bending, folding, snipping here and there and this is the creation I came up with.  I used several of the Mega Doily Dies for my base and then added to.  Now the trick is going to be finding an envelope that would work, LOL.  May just have to be one of those you hand deliver.  

Here is a complete list of dies used for this project: 

Fancy Rosette Tutorial with Scor-Pal and Paper Smooches

Happy Friday everyone,  I hope you have been enjoying our week long hop sponsored by Scor-pal and  Paper Smooches  and our talented design teams.  Remember  to stop by everyone's blog to see what they've been up to.  Scor-Pal will be giving away 3 prizes packages - each one includes a Paper Smooches stamp that we've shown this week as well as Scor-tape. Leave comments on our posts this week for your chance to win!
I'm thrilled to be able to share my project with you today highlighting a short and simple tutorial to make any project pop, decorate rosettes. 

Rosettes are so simple to create but you really can take them to the next level with decorative punches or dies.  

Step 1. Cut two  12 x 2" inch strip of decorative paper.  I've cut mine with a decorative border die, but you could also use a punch.  Using your Scor-Pal, score the entire strip every 1/2, do the same on the second strip.
Step 2: Fold and crease all your folds with the Scor-Tool to create crisp edges. 
Step 3: Once you have both strips folded, apply Scor-Pal tape to the end of one of you pieces and join to the other.  This will make a long strip as shown in the picture above. 
Step 4: Tape your ends together to form a  circle. Punch out a circle from scrap card stock and cover with Scor-Tape.  
Step 5: Push down on your circle on top of the tape scrap circle and you'll form a beautiful rosette like the one above ready to add to and enhance your projects. 
I topped mine off with an adorable piece cut stamped image from the " Retail Therapy" stamp set by Paper Smooches
Now remember to visit all the designers blogs from the Scor-Pal design team and the Paper Smooches Team and have fun.

Poppies are Always My Favorite

If you read my blog you'll know I've said in the past Poppies are my favorite flower.  I love them.  KasierCraft came out with their current collection Remember Me and I of course fell in love because it's poppies galore. 

This is a simple card I created with Remember Me.  Kasier's Collectables make layering and creating a detailed card so simple. 

I'll see you all on Friday with a new post for Cheery until then happy crafting.

KaiserCrafts Standing Bird/Album

This is a beyond the page project I created for KasierCraft's design team.   I used the standing bird but wanted it to be more than just the bird, so I added a mini book onto the front.  The collection that was used was "Elegance" and it's such a wonderful range.  I think you can tell from this piece all the variety it offers.
