Just In Time For Fall

Hello crafty friends! Hot Off The Press has the cutest NEW products for fall and I can’t wait to show you!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Dotted Duos #3 Paper Pack has a wonderful collection of Fall inspired polka dots (and I LOVE dots!). The 12 double sided paper have micro dots on one side and larger dots on the other.

It’s such a versatile Paper Pack!

The 8 Labels For Your Greetings Cutting Dies and Special Sentiments Clear Stamps made a great focal for the card. I used both Tangerine and Ginger Country Blooms along with Fall Foliage Sparkletz and nested them around the label.

I’m very excited to introduce a NEW product from Hot Off The Press, exclusive to Paper Wishes! Birds & Branches Chipboard!

The cream colored pieces are perfect for blended inks to match any project.

I used them again on this scrapbook page and used a collage technique to make little clusters of chipboard, flowers and Sparkletz.

The birds and branches were easy to spot color using brown, red/orange and green ink pads.

The sweet Forest Friends Cutting Dies, cut from Chocolate Brown Cardstock and backed with Kraft Cardstock, adds the perfect touch of nature.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you check out these new products for your fall projects.

Pocket Frames

Hello friends this week the Paper Wishes Design Team had fun using Pocket Frames, which come in 2 sizes, and they’re perfect for displaying paper crafts.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

To build my page, I used 49th And Market Captured Adventures Papers and Bluebell Blossoms Blends Flowers. I added a little glitz with Winter’s Evergreen Sparkletz.

The 8″x10″ Pocket Frame is the right size for a scrapbook page with lots of dimension. Because there is not glass, you can add 3-D elements and display your page for as long as you wish.

When you’re ready to change your page, simply detach the magnetic edge and slide in another page.

I glued my 8″x10″ page onto a 12″x12″ paper and placed it in my Scrapbook album.

Debbie used a 6″x5.5″ Pocket Frame to feature her Sweet Letters Cutting Die. She mounted her black cardstock silhouette image over the Basket Weave Cutting Die using foam tape. She even added acetate to create a window for her frame.

The art work inside the frame is easily changed out by detaching the magnet edge of the frame. Debbie plans on using the die cut elements on a card to reuse them.

This Pocket frame features 3-D elements using Heartfelt Creation’s Tulip Time Collection.

The possibilities are endless.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you’ll give Pocket Frames a try and display your beautiful crafts.

Happy Crafting!

Vintage Cards & Scrapbook Page

Hello friends, today I’m bringing you some paper crafts with vintage style. Layering vintage elements is the key to this look. I started with a 12″x12″ cardstock background and then overlapped 5″x7″ papers, photos and die-cuts, arranging them both horizontally and vertically to fill empty space.

To make this sweet page I used Pastel Cardstock, Hello Friend Paper Layers and Hello Friend Whatnots.

I love the color scheme in this collection: Tan, Brown, Cream, Peach and Pink.

For this card I layered paper and stickers. To create a focal, I tore the image of the woman from the corner of a  5″x7″ paper.

I used Cashmere Dame Paper Layers, Hello Friend Title Stickers and a Pink Mini Paper Rose.

Thanks for joining me today. Don’t forget to shop Paper Wishes HUGE 60% Off Sale happening now.

Happy crafting!

Big Die-Cut Crafts

Hi crafty friends! Today I bring you cards and pages made from Birthday Die-Cuts Booklet and Feminine Die-Cuts Booklet. The images are large and colorful and they make the sweetest projects.

This cute elephant (from the Birthday Die-Cuts Booklet)  is one of my favorites. It was a snap to make using the Center Step Card Template.

I love the technique on this bicycle card! Extend the image off the edge and trim it even with the card edge.

This fun Birthday page was so simple to put together. Once again I used the Birthday Die-Cuts Booklet along with solid cardstock and the Build A Banner Template.

This purse card (using the Feminine Die-Cuts Booklet) is adorable and was very quick to make.

You can even use the Die-Cut shapes to make shaped cards. For this Teapot card I glued the die-cut to the front of a blank card, aligning the folded edge just under the pot lid. I used small scissors to cut around the die-cut edges.

This is what it looks like on the inside.

This scrapbook page uses Chalkboard Paper Pack, the Feminine Die-Cut Booklet and some flowers to create a precious Family themed page.

Here is a quick little video about the Die-Cut Booklets:

You can buy both Die-Cut Booklets for a great price! Check it out here.

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!

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.
