Kids Card at Dies R Us

Hi .. How are you today. This DT project for Dies R Us showcases many Happy Birthday cards made using dies and Scraperfect Best Glue Ever with the non clog writing tip.
So through out a year I need many Birthday Cards... so today I am sharing some combinations to make card making super fun and easy.
I am using s simple die cut sailing image with the sentiment Happy Birthday.... use some layers and matted border for the sentiment.

For this one I went wild fun bold colours using the same dies. What a totally different look.. it is finished off with wrapped twine.

Now I used the same sentiment but went with a mesh accent along with the cat/ n fish bowl die.... mat it for layers and a fun mix of colours.

Another cat/ n fish bowl die along with different layers using more print papers for a great mix of colours. Also pulling this all out with black is perfect.

I made the last card using the same dies.. but went with a print image and cardstock sentiment. This one is muted using vellum paper overlay and a twine wrap.

Supply List:
Machine/ tools: Vagabond, Tim Holtz Platform
Other: Cardstock, print papers, twine

Welcome to The Rubber Buggy today. It's Bev and I am thrilled to share my newest collection with you. It's Mintay Secret Place Collection. Includes 12 - double sided 12x12 scrapbooking paper (2 each of 6 papers) and 1 bonus element image sheet on back of cover.

Everyone has their own secret place, where they feel safe and where they can dream and feel free. You will find our secret place right next to the forest, full of ferns and beautiful flowers as well as mysterious, old doors. This very feminine, romantic collection is based on a very trendy color combo: emerald and antique pink. Perfect for any occasion and for any type of paper creativity.

I have been creating page with no photos to be added later and also using lots of sketches for inspiration. On this page I use amazing prints, layers in the background and super fun clusters using the accent sheets from the collection

This page sketch called for background strips of paper. I did lots of inking.

I then wanted to use lots of the fab images on the element sheets and love making clusters.

Here is the other cluster above the empty spots for photos to be added.

It looks alot like Chrstmas at Whisker Graphics

OMG I am having great fun using Whisker Graphics.twine, tags and metal rimmed circle tags on my Christmas projects.  Using twine on these projects is a fabulous way to decorate. Whisker Graphics has an amazing collection of twine and tags to choose from. The project above is a special style twine border. (details below).

For the first project I started with a card base, coloured digi image and will make the twine border first.
Starting on the lower edge of front print wrap many times around.

Tie off the front in the centre pulling things tight and tie a knot.

Add the large size button and tie a knot and finish with a tiny bow. 

Up close of the finished twine and button border.

Add the image, brad trees, the ribbon and stamp the word christmas.


Up next is all these super fun and cute little gift boxes. I used the Heartfelt Creations box die cut. After die cutting from fabulous fun print papers I glued the box pieces together.

Now the trimming starts. I am using the metal rimmed circle tags and stamping them with a fun xmas stamped image... different ones and different colours.

Now I stamped the small tags with different images and different colours.

Here is a photo of the 2 tags all stamped up ready to add to the boxes.
Each box is trimmed and tied up with twine... and the 2 tags are tied and accented with twine also.

These 2 view above showcase the finsihed boxes.... all done.


Up last but not least is a few fun cards... all finished off with wrapped twine or a tied bow.
