Card Making From Scrapbooking Kits

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m featuring card making with a twist. Paper Wishes is featuring 2 Premiere Scrapbooking Kits for the amazing price of $13.50! That’s right, for both kits! Many kits contain exclusive paper packs that were not released on Paper Wishes. Today I’m going to show you how to turn these kits into cute quick and easy cards.

If you’re not familiar with our Scrapbooking Kits, they look like this and come in 12″x12″ format.

Each kit contains paper, art cut-outs, ribbons and a large assortment of embellishments. You even get a full color newsletter with instructions for 1 card and 4 two page scrapbooking layouts.

However, if you’re not into scrapbooking you can still use these fabulous supplies to make at least a dozen cards from each kit! Yes…12 cards, or more!

The first kit features this “Get Well” card and even has full instructions.

I made this cheery “Happy Birthday” card from the Birthday Page supplies. There are plenty of blank tags and labels to stamp, write or print greetings and customize your cards.

This colorful “Family Fun” card features tinted overlays that can be placed over or under the letters. I LOVE this adorable stripe ribbon and ribbon slide!

The second kit focuses on Birthdays.

It includes everything you nee to make this adorable “Wish Book.”

And this color blocked birthday card.

For this card I used supplies for ice cream birthday themed pages. So sweet!

Don’t forget our BIG 55% off Sale continues until September 30.

Thanks for joining me today. Happy crafting!

Butterflies & Roses

Hello crafty friends! Today I have some fresh inspiration for you!

First up is the Lace Butterfly Cutting Die by Die’sire Create-A-Card™. I cut the image from Red Holographic Ripple Paper and then lightly sanded the wings for a distressed look. After covering the blank card with Sunday Musings Paper Pack I placed Illuminate Enamel Dots on the butterfly center and Card Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers on the card bottom.

Don’t forget to bend the wings slightly to give them a little lift.

Next, this card still uses the Sunday Musings Paper Pack and Red Jewel Butterfly Dazzles™ Stickers along with the Heidi Swapp One Of A Kind Stamp Set.

I stamped roses from Heidi Swapp One Of A Kind Stamp Set along the bottom edge of white cardstock to create a border.

And then I used Primary Tones Chameleon Pens to color the roses and leaves.

If you have never used the Chameleon Pens they really are amazing.

Check out this video that Gail made.

That’s all for today. Try to make some time in your busy schedules to make something pretty to share.

Happy crafting!

A Little Birdie

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m bringing you some cute bird inspired projects. This is ironic because it’s widely known, among my friends and coworkers, that live birds give me the heebie geebies! But these sweet little crafted creatures are too cute to resist so let’s get started.

For this card I used Floral Blooms Paper and an Elegant Bird Cage Die. 

Next to the bird cage I placed a Double-Stick Bird Dazzles™ Sticker and sprinkled it with a little Orchid Flock. I used my fingertip to rub it into the adhesive and brushed off the excess flock.

I finished off my card with Blue Jewel Silhouettes Dazzles™ Stickers and a Script Greeting Dazzles™ Sticker. The Illuminate Enamel DotsPink Mini Paper Roses, Ivory Mini Blossoms and pink bow add some dimension.

For the scrapbook page I used blue paper from Floral Blooms Paper and laid the 12″x12″ Birdhouse Template over the paper and used a green glimmer mist to create a shadow effect.

After cleaning the Birdhouse Template I traced a birdhouse image to make an embellishment for my page.

Lightly sanding Song Bird Foiled Fancies reveal the silver underneath the gold foil and create a nice two tone effect.

Fresh Christmas Cards

Hi crafty friends! I have just returned from Disneyland where my daughter and I celebrated an early Halloween. It was great fun!

Now it’s time to turn my attention to all of those handmade Christmas cards. I can’t wait to get started!

This card uses the Entwined Holly Decorative Metal Cutting Die by Sara Davies. I also used Christmas Cabin Paper Pack, Ribbons and Long Christmas Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers. I die cut the holly from gold cardstock, but Metallic Gold Paper works well too. As an added detail I placed Red Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers on each berry.

These Decorative Bauble Metal Cutting Dies by Sara Davies are intricate, but easy to remove from the die. (Don’t you hate it when paper gets hopelessly stuck in the die and you have to pick it out?!) I covered the card and each ornament with Christmas Cheer Paper Pack and die cut the ornaments from silver cardstock; however Metallic Silver Paper and Silver Holographic Ripple works as well. I added Platinum Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers to hang the ornaments and added Christmas Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers.

Thanks for joining me today and happy crafting!

Christmas Stocking & Witch Stocking Cards

Hi crafty friends! Today I’ve got some fun uses for this versatile Half & Half Stockings: Cutting Die & Stamp Set (check out the Amazing Price on this set). 

My suggestion is to first use it for Halloween. 

These cute cards uses both Half & Half Stockings: Cutting Die & Stamp Set and Trick Or Treat Dazzles™ Stickers.

And then make fabulous Christmas Stocking cards! (Tip: Use Red Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers to embellish the stamped holly details)

This card uses Tiny Poinsettia Dazzles™ Stickers 3-Pack to embellish the stockings.

Uncharted Waters Collection

Hi crafty friends, I was cruising the isles of Paper Wishes warehouse (I do that when I need some inspiration) and I came across the Uncharted Waters Collection by Glitz Design. There were so many cute things!

For this page I used 12″x12″ Pastel Cardstock for the background. This cardstock pack has a great shimmer and the price is unbelievable! I added Uncharted Waters Paper Layers and then slid a family photo behind an overlay frame from Uncharted Waters Peek-A-Boo. The Uncharted Waters Paper Garland is too cute and the Uncharted Waters Cardstock Journaling Stickers are just the right fit to complete this page. 

I used my extra pieces to make this card. 

For a different look use the Uncharted Waters Collection and a Sarah’s Surfaces 8″x8″ Album to make a quick summer album. 

To continue this nautical theme I used Nautical Dazzles™ Stickers and one of my favorite paper sets, Seaside Paper Pack.

Thanks for joining me today and happy crafting!

Die-Cut Card Ideas

Hi crafty friends! Today I have some fresh inspiration for you. Both of the die-cut cards I’m featuring today use this 12″x12″ Floral Paper Pad. It’s a really versatile collection and, as you will see, both cards are very different from one another. 

This first card uses a Tonic Cutting die called Boho Beautiful. It’s reminiscent of the flower child generation. I used 6″x6″ Textured Cardstock Sheets and cut the image from white cardstock and backed it with gray, then added the blue details. A simple script greeting from Card Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers completed the look. 

Unfortunately, at some point, we all have need for this next card. Sympathy cards are always difficult, but I find that I reflect on that person when I’m creating a special card for their family. Somehow this is peaceful for me. 

For this card I used a Large Rose Cutting Die and With Sympathy Sentiment Cutting Die and the flourish was cut from a background found in the 12″x12″ Floral Paper Pad.

Don’t forget Paper Wishes is having a Back To School Sale happening now!

Thanks for joining me today. Happy crafting!

Halloween Crafts

Hi everyone! I have some sweet Halloween crafts for you today. First, is a little something for your Trick-Or-Treaters. I used the Double-Pocket Treat Die-Cut Cards, Haunted Findings Paper Pack, Halloween Cuties Dazzles™ Stickers, 6″x6″ Textured Cardstock and Evan’s Town Ribbons.

Now that you have the treats taken care of, don’t forget some cute decorations. This banner was quick to put together because I used the Nested Pennant Creative Cutting Dies and Nested Circles Creative Cutting Dies to make the base.

For the background I used Haunted Findings Paper Pack and 6″x6″ Textured Cardstock.  The black and brown die cut letters are Chocolate Monograms which I embellished with ribbon and Orange Mini Flowers.

For this fall themed card, once again, I used the versatile Haunted Findings Paper Pack. I lightly sanded the leaves, flowers and acorns from Fall Die-Cuts and the orange twill ribbon is from Evan’s Town Ribbons.
