Project Twenty

So I am so sorry all! I have been swamped with getting back to school this year. I am back in college, so at my age and am classes and homework are something to get used to.

OK so I did this project at the beginning of the month for KinderStampO August tag swap. What is a tag swap you ask....I know I had to ask LOL!! OK so we had to make either 5, 10 or 15 tags with the theme, we were assigned Nature. So I made 10 of these tags sent them to Jess, along with a postage paid envelope. Once Jess got everyone, she sorted them as sent each of us the number of tags you sent from the others in the group. I got some beautiful tags. The came today, so I am really excited! So I will know so you the tag I made plus a quick photo of the ones I received.

PS I have to admit, I missed the theme when I started thinking of my tag, so I had to really get my tag together quick.

So here is my tag.

Recipe for the tag
made from Chipboard
Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge
Shadow feature
3 x 5
I tried a trick I heard about
I used the deep blade in the regular housing. It worked ONLY because I was going to cover the chipboard with paper. You could see some of the drag marks in the tag.

Base Pattern paper was Heidi Grace Designs
cut at 3.1 x 5.1 same tag as above.
I did hide the hole in DS
The paper was 2 sided which I used
one side for front one side for back!

Green Paper by Core'dinations
Cartridge: Plantin Schoolbook
Shift-Main button
2.85 x 3.85
then used the EK Success Medium Rounder punch on corners

Cartridge: Pooh Cartridge
cut at 2 1/4 inches

Basic Supplies
Prima Flowers
Orange and Brown Crystals
Mono Adhesive
Liquid Glue

Oh here is the picture of the tags I received

Thanks for looking!

So This little project is for a friend who works for an after school program, so I thought I would make her a post it note holder. I got my dimensions from Dorcas at 4 Crafty Angels. Check out her blog, she is great. I am also entering this in a challenge for Emma at My Creative Time. So here it is. I think it turned out super cute. Recipe below the picture.

Card is Brazzill and pattern piece is Bo Bunny back to basics
Minnie is from Mickey and friends Cartridge cut at 3 inches
    (No I don't like the tiny cuts either LOL)
Flowers are from Prima
Ribbon and Brads are from my stash.
For more directions on how to put this together check out Dorcas Blog!

Thanks for watching!

Project Eighteen

Welcome to another project with Disney in mind. This is actually a Birthday card for my sister. I made the doll look like her then used a Disney cartridge to make her Cinderella! Yes major cutting and pasting, but it turned out cute. This is also for another Peachy Keen Challenge #34. We were to use the sketch below for the challenge.

This is what I came up with!

Recipe ( yes this was a long one)
Paper is all Brazzill
Pattern Paper is K1 Memories
Card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches
Pattern Paper cut to 5 x 8 inches

Strips of paper going across
Pink color is 2 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches then I ran it through the cuttlebug using Swiss Dots folder
White Strip is 2  x 8 1/2 inches then ran through cuttlebug using Polka Dots folder

Strips going up and down
Pink is 3 x 5 1/2 I then used Fiskars Apron Lace border punch on both sides of pink
Pattern paper is the same K1 Memories as background 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches

Scalloped circles
Cartridge used: Martha Stewart's All Occasion cakes page 37
pink one cut at 3 inches
White one cut at 2 3/4 inches then ran through with cuttlebug Happy Birthday Folder

Cinderella Doll
OK this is where I had to do major cut and paste to get this to work

Doll it self
Cartridge: Everyday paper doll page 28 cut at 2 1/2 inches using the blackout feature
Face is Peachy Keen assorted faces stamps
ink was Stampin Up Chocolate Chip
Hair was page 31 paper was yellow with a stencil brush using Stampin Up Chocolate Chip for highlights.

Cinderella Dress
 Cartridge: Happily Ever After page 29 icon button both regular and with shift key
OK so the top of the dress was cut at 3 inches
While the bottom of the dress was cut at 2 1/2 inches.
Once dress was put together you still have to "trim" the doll to have the Disney hourglass figure.
I added stickles clear  to the dress and pearls.
I used rhinestones for a tiara.
