Creative Embellishments are PURFECT accents

So this PURFECT page has great chipboards to match the Prima Zella Teal Collection. This little kitten is my eldest son's newest addition to his family and his name is "Newton". 

Supply List:
Creative Embellishments Products
Paper:  Prima Marketing Inc Zella Teal 
Other: sew easy ink roller, distress ink, black pen

So to start this page I cut the paper pieces following one of my sketches. This collection had great calling cards to use and some accent strips etc so I cut them too. I layout my proposed layout without gluing anything down.

Now I pull and place the chipboards to best suit my page.

I now pull everything off and start gluing from the bottom up to front.
I decided with the colour of this collection that naked chipboard was a PURFECT mix.

In the close ups you can see the fabulous details in the chipboards.

The frame is awesome and showcases Newton the kitten.

The circular piece is awesome with the OH DEAR!

And the lower clustered chipboard is a great base border to the whole main section.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to visit the STORE where you can view these and so many other products.

Whisker Graphics Bitty Bucket tutorial

OMG I am having great fun using Whisker Graphics. Bitty Buckets to create a great Birthday treat for all those young kids in our lives. They love when I package their favourite treats up for them for all occasions but especially their Birthdays. Add some cute sticker accents, tie off with wrapped multi colours of twine and cluster a batch of great tags decorated for the occasion. It is a perfect fun addition to any party, kids surprise treat... and so easy to decorate.

Supply List:
Whisker Graphics: Bitty Buckets, Small TagsLarge TagsPetite Stickies, Twine
Other: stamp, ink

So it all starts with the bitty bucket, some tags. lots of stickers and some twine.

I decorated the tags and clustered them for more colour and fun. I used accenting one on tags and tin.
The cluster is lightly glued to hold them in place to show more of the accents. 
The one tag is used to suit the occasion.... it will suit any occasion.

The bucket has added stickers some full size some cut in half to fit and still leave the tin pattern in full view.

Wrapping twine around the tin in lots of colours and tying a bow leaving long strands is a perfect touch.

Off the Rails Scrapbooking using Happy Medium Christmas Kit from Creative Escape Papercrafting

Hi Bev here today... I am sharing my xmas card with the origami xmas tree... including the instructions to print and a video on how to. This will make it easier for you to make your own also.
I am sharing this on the Off the Rails Scrapbooking blog and also using the Happy Medium Christmas Kit from Creative Escape Papercrafting.

After making my origami tree I gathered lots of fun elements and accents to complete my card.

In the close ups you can see I added gem stones to the tree to make it sparkle.

I matted and popped up this piece and centred it on a ribbon border.

Pennants were custom cut, glued and I even stitched them

You can print the instruction sheets on 8.5 x 11" paper and create you very own origami xmas tree.

And for those that like to follow via videos... here is the one I did for origami xmas trees.

Thanks for stopping .... hope to see you again soon.

Hi .. How are you today. This DT project for Dies R Us showcases a birthday card made using lots of die cuts... some single and some matted for pop of colour and depth with texture too. The papers are from the Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs collection.... the colours were perfect.

Machine/ tools: Big Shot Express, misti
Paper: Blue Fern Studio Home Spun
Stamp: Sheep Ski Design
Markers: Copics
Die: Memory Box 30044

So to create this card I started with digi image that I die cut to form my tag

I love using lots of layers in cardstock and added colour, texture and depth to a project.

I die cut the accent pieces in cardstock all matching. I added tied ribbons to the tag.
