Club La-La Land Crafts January Kit

Hello!  I'm back with a couple more cards using the NEW Club La-La Land Crafts January Kit!  


For my first card, I used Marci with Pen.  I colored her up in some fun "Valentine Colors" and fussy cut her out.  Then I popped her on top of a die cut circle and layered that on top of some cut typewriter paper.  I cut a strip of hot pink paper and layered that on top of some white card stock.  Then I added that to the right side of my card and layered on the envelopes border.  I also die cut the "with love" sentiment from some grey and red card stock and layered them both together.  I popped that on the bottom of my card, just under Marci's feet.  A few enamel dots finish it all off.

For my next card, I used one of the adorable pigs from the Happy Mail Rubber Stamp Set.  First I layered some sky patterned paper onto some red card stock and trimmed it to fit my card base.  Then I cut a strop of rose patterned paper and added that to the top of my card.  I die cut the "with love" sentiment die and popped that on top with some foam tape.  I also added a little sentiment just below it cut into a rectangle.  For the bottom of my card, I added a strip of grey card stock and popped my red mailbox on top to the left of my card.  I used the Envelopes Border die and trimmed a few of the envelopes from the strip, adding them to the bottom of my mailbox.  I colored up my little pig with Copics, fussy cut him out, and popped him to the right of the mailbox.  Then I added another envelope from the border die to his left hand.

CC Designs Gift Card/Treat Envelope Tutorial

Hello!  I am so excited to share a fun tutorial using the NEW CC Designs Patterned Paper!  With just a single sheet of 6X6 paper, you can create a cute little gift card/treat holder envelope! 

Step #1: Start with a 6X6 sheet of patterned paper. 


Step#2: Fold the paper in half to create a triangle shape. 


Step #3: take the top of the triangle and fold one side down just a ¼ of an inch from the bottom.  Use your bone folder to smooth the fold. 


Step #4: Under the fold, take the right side of the triangle and fold underneath the top fold as seen in the photo below. 


Step#5: Do the same to the left hand side. Make sure that the top fold can still lay on top of your folds. 


Step #6: Fold the top down and staple it to the front.  You should have a pocket now.  Do not staple the back of your envelope. 



Step #7: Use a punch to round the corner on the top.  The bottom will not matter, we are going to cover it up. 


Step #8: Decorate the front of your envelope and stuff it with goodies like gift cards or candy.

La-La Land Crafts Blue and Gold


Hello!  This week's theme at La-La Land Crafts is Blue and Gold.  For my card, I decided to create a fun winter scene using the new patterned papers and Snow Amazing Stamp set!  To begin, I started with a sheet of the blue and white snowflake paper from the Blue Christmas Paper Pack.  I trimmed that to fit the front of my card panel.  Then I added a small strip of blue and white checkered paper to the bottom as well as a die cut scalloped strip of gold foil card stock.  Then I die cut a snowy hill for my bunnies and added that just above the checkered paper.  I used the Three Christmas Trees die to cut some gold trees and then I cut them apart to create two individual trees for the background.  Then, I colored up my bunnies and fussy cut them out.  I added them to my scene using foam tape and added a few gold sequins to the background.

CC Designs January Release

Hello!  It's release day at CC Designs!!!  Today, I'm featuring Heart You Clear Stamp Set with Coordinating Dies!  For my project, I decided to create a little Valentine Treat Box!  I started with the Treat Bag Die and cut it from some patterned paper.  Then I layered on some hearts, paper rosettes, doilies, etc. to give it some interest.  I colored up my little cupid image with some Copics, cut it out using the coordinating dies, and popped it on top using some foam tape.  Then I finished the whole thing off with some polka dot ribbon and some fun tissue paper.  Too cute!
