1 sheet of paper tutorial: "Cute" flap mini album

Hello my friends! I got so many amazing responses on the first 1 sheet of paper tutorial; I decided to make it a monthly tutorial! That means each month I will teach you to make a different project using only one sheet of paper. I did this mini album as a DT project for My Punch kit of the month club. I only took pictures of the finished album, so for the tutorial I used plain white paper just to show the process. For the “Cute” mini album you will need: 1 sheet of double sided cardstockBind It All 1. Cut four 4″ by 8″ rectangles. You can fit 4 rectangles on one page if you cut three of them horizontally and one vertically. 2. Cut one rectangle in half, so you will have two 4″ by 4″ squares. 3. Make two fold lines on one rectangle: the first on the 2″ line and the second on the 6″ line. …

Wedding layout – Designer Craft Connection

It’s wedding day at the Designer Craft Connection! Welcome to all of you hoppers. Today’s blog hop is all about weddings. Each designer is showing a creation related to wedding and there are some beautiful projects and ideas for you. As a paper and scrapbook designer I decided to share with you a layout I did for my wedding album. I have been married for 15 years but until now I didn’t have a wedding album. I know..it’s a shame! This layout was done as a DT project for My Punch and I was asked to use only a few materials to show a wedding layout that will not be too expensive. For this layout I used only one sheet of patterned paper, three paper flowers and 12 inches of lace ribbon. All the other embellishments were handmade from paper scraps! Swirls: I cut the swirls from paper, stamped them and add a line around the edges with a black …

Technique Corner – Creative Title

This layout is a collage of my boys. There are a few photos of each of my boys, from when they were babies up to (almost) now. I wanted to give this layout a feeling of time passing by, so I used a paper from the TIME collection that I designed. The paper has the word time on it and a pattern of clocks. I stamped a few cog wheels and added word accents with time phrases on them. I wanted the title to reflect the theme of the layout so I used a technique called themed title. This idea of this technique is to create a title that will not just be a word related to the subject of the layout, but the design of the title itself would be created with materials, images and embellishments related to the overall theme. Since the theme of my layout was time, I spelled the word flies from clock parts just below the word time. Here …

Ins(Paper)ation – Creation Journal Project

The process of inspiration is very mysterious to me. Whenever I try to discover where I get my inspiration I find out it never comes from one place and it always a collection of circumstances, images and experiences. Take the next project for example. I wanted for some time to create a Creation Journal for myself, a journal to write all my creative and thoughts and ideas. The only problem was I never got the inspiration to create it or the idea of how I wanted it to look. Then a chain of events started:first, I took this photo of a Wagtail (I love this bird), Then I got the chance to work with the Noteworthy Trees fabulous paper by Magenta and the new cork self adhesive Birds & Branches stickers. Suddenly it was there, an idea for my Creation Journal! I first covered an old notebook with the patterned paper. Then I added texture and embellishments. I started with applying …
