Merry Christmas Card

I wish you could see this card in person!  The design and sentiment are on a reflective silver paper which really brings so much elegance to the card.  I just could not capture it in a photograph!  If you have an opportunity to purchase Kanban products, be on the look out for this collection - it is really stunning!

Wishes for You

Today I am going to show you how to make this dimensional flower using the Circle Maker!

Our first step is to punch out 20 large circles and 7 small circles.  I am using the Reflections Designer-Print Paper which is double sided (if you are wanting to use different papers, you will need 10 large circles for the first layer, and 9 large circles for the second layer). 
Note: You will have one extra large circle which is explained below).

Next, we are going to fold each circle into a cone, leaving one large circle for the flower base.  I folded my large circles so 10 with the green side showing and 9 with the gray side showing.  All 7 of my small circles were folded with the green side showing.

 Cover your base with adhesive strips as shown above.

Adhere 10 of the large circles to the base, flatten the bottom of the cones to the adhesive.

Next, adhere the second layer of the large circles, changing colors as shown.

Then add in the third layer with the smaller circles. 

 Using a small paper flower from the Reflections Paper Flowers, attach to the center of the flower using a small foam square.  Add in a small heart using the Silver Metallic Precious Element Fine-Tip Pen then attach your flower to your project!

Momenta + Epiphany Crafts!

Welcome to our final day of the Momenta and Epiphany Crafts product swap! 
If you haven't been by the Momenta Blog or Epiphany Crafts Blog this week, be sure to do so!  There have been some fabulous projects! 

It's Jamie with you here today and I am sharing a couple of my favorite projects that I created using Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Round 14 and Momenta's Pyramid Pads!  

The little cupcakes from the Let's Party Pyramid Pad work perfectly with the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Accessories Bubble Caps Round 14!  
It is like they were just meant to be, right!?  

And I love how the Shape Studio Accessories Bubble Caps Round 14 fit inside the Charm Settings!  These metal embellishments have so many possibilities!  I used Momenta's Kaleidoscope Pyramid Pad added two Charm Settings to my card below!

For my last project I pulled inspiration from Pinterest!    I found a ribbon bookmark out on the boards the other day and thought that it would be perfect to duplicate but with paper!  I stitched two 7-1/2" x 1" strips of pattern paper together from the Kaleidoscope Pyramid Pad.  I wrapped each open end of the paper around an elastic hair band and then stitched each side closed.  I placed the Charm Setting on a small metal loop and then attached it to the elastic hair band!

These are super easy and quick to make and they would be a great gift for any reader!

LYB Hello Fall Cycling Team!

I am so excited to be back with you today sharing Little Yellow Bicycle's Happy Fall collection!  This line has fabulous colors and amazing embellishments which include clear cut shapes with glitter accents, like the orange flourish I used below as well as corrugated shapes and lots of die cuts and labels!

 There are also chipboard shapes with glitter accents and canvas border stickers which I used to alter a plain white frame!  I added in our names on little leafs to make a family tree!

 And my most favorite embellishment pack from the Hello Fall line?  ...the paper flower kit!  The flowers are already cut, all you have to do is score, fold, then mix and match the pieces together to create an amazing display of flowers!  

Aren't they gorgeous?
I used a canning jar filled with glass beads and used the Crepe Paper Lace Stickers and Cardstock Die Cuts to create the wrap!

Be sure to check out Little Yellow Bicycle's Blog for more creations from the Cycling Team!

Surprise for the Christmas Tree!

This is one of the quickest boxes I have ever created and I think it is just perfect to hide money or gift cards on the Christmas tree!  These would even be cute to hold "hints" about where gifts are hidden! 
I wrapped the red cardstock to form a loop then pressed the two ends on each side in to form a pillow box.  I then added in a frame from the Christmas Green Wreath papers!    I punched a hole and tied twine from The Twinery so that the box could hang on the tree!

Thinking of You

To create this card, start with a base of 8-1/2" x 5-1/2".
Score at 2-1/8" and 2-3/8" then again at 6-1/8" and 6-3/8".
Use a border punch to dress up the edges.  
Trim coordinating paper to 1-3/4" x 5-1/2" for the inside panels.
Use foam adhesives to attach the butterfly then stamp a sentiment.
Use ribbon for the wrap to hold the card closed.

Quick and easy!

Are You Ready For Some EXTREME Cuteness?

I would like to introduce you to Eton the Turkey, my most favorite Kanban Wobbler yet...! 
 He comes with the fork and knife, but I added the "eat beef" banner to give him a little help to make it through this Thanksgiving season!  ...really, who would eat Turkey if they were all this stinkin' cute!?

What I Love About This Moment

Creative Memories recently release Storybook Creator 4.0  software!  If you have not ever tried the software, you really should!  They have a free trial download that they offer on their site which you can find HERE.  I have played with many programs and this by far is my is easy to use, has lots and lots of built in features, and CM offers a lot of tutorials on their digi site!  You can purchase CM digital content or import other kits!  I use the program not only for digital layout and hybrid projects, but for creating word art, photo collages, and tutorials for my blog!  This is one product that I  can not function without - really, I love it that much! 

The layout above was created using SBC 4.0 and the CM Serene Digital Kit which was included in my 4.0 upgrade!

The Stores Are Doing It... why can't I!  :)

Football Gifts

Each year the football staff allows me to be down on the field capturing all the memories I want with my camera!  Even though I get in there way from time to time, they are always allowing me to capture the kids and they never complain (at least not to me) about it!  So as a thank you, I create each of them a scrapbook with photos and scores from each game along with some extra shots, including individuals shots and after hour get togethers!  I also put a DVD of all the photos I captured at the back of each book!
This year I created 9 books!  I used Creative Memories Football Digital Addition and the Storybook Creator Software to create the pages.  I purchased double sided matte photo paper (from Staples) and printed the pages out on 8-1/2" x 11" papers then trimmed them to 8" x 8" and binded them myself using my Unibind Photobook Creator and 8" x 8" Unibind photobooks!

I was thrilled with how they turned out and the coaches seemed to have been as well!
