Hi dear crafty friends! I previously shared with you how to combine a mini album with a box. Why not combine a card with a box too? Today I’m sharing my Pop Up Box Card with Studio 75.     Pop Up Box Card with Studio 75 Before you get mad that I didn’t make a tutorial on how to create this pop up box card let me just say I had to make this card in a hurry but I promise to make a video tutorial in the future.

Paper and Quilling Altered Frame

Hi dear crafty friends! How do you present your favorite photos? Are they tucked away in albums, are they framed and hanged on the wall? Today i want to share with you a Paper and Quilling Altered Frame I created to present one of my favorite family photos.     Paper and Quilling Altered Frame I started this frame with a shadow frame i got at IKEA. They come in a white color, which I didn’t like. So I covered it with gesso and then painted it with brown acrylic paint. When the paint was dry I added a little white strokes with a dry brush to create a vintage distressed look. The next step was to create the details. First I cut all the large pieces of flowers, butterflies and the background. I layered them all on the inside of the frame and around it. To create dimension I added the flowers on the inside and outside of the …

On the sides I added flaps and pockets. These interactive mechanisms allow you to add many more photos to …

How to Create a Tunnel Book with Graphic 45

Hi dear crafty friends! Now that my two year term as a Graphic 45 Grand Ambassador is almost coming to an end I went over all the projects I made and realized there are some I didn’t share here. One of them is How to Create a Tunnel Book with Graphic 45.     How to Create a Tunnel Book with Graphic 45 But first a few words on tunnel books… Tunnel books are made up of a series of pages that are held together by folded strips of paper on each side. In fact, the sides of a tunnel book might make you think of an accordion. The overall effect of a tunnel book is to create the illusion of depth and perspective.       I created this book with the Enchanted Forest collection. Since it’s full of castles, princesses and all things fairy tales I thought it would be great to create a story in a box, …
