The Tag thin cuts are so much Fun and great for making Holiday tags! I used the large size tag: (I stamped To and From on the back)


I cut two pieces of white Daisy Cardstock at 1/2 inch each ( long enough to fit on tag).  I then tore off both sides the long way on the vertical piece and tore one long side of the horizontal piece. I then adhered the long piece down the center of the tag and trimmed off any access.  Next I adhered the other strip with the flat edge to the bottom of the tag and cut…

Here is my project for today:

 I used the Tag Thin Cuts and cut out two of the largest tag from Falling from you pattern paper.
The tags weren't long enough to go over the mini tic tacs I had to put inside so I created a little 'open box' for them to sit in and put a zip strip (the piece cut from the top of the paper, approx, 1/2") on the bottom and them added the tags:






Then I took some White Burlap Ribbon and with my scissors cut up one of the areas between two strand and then all the strand…

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Fabulous Foil


If you came from Darlys Recker's Blog you are on the right track! Thank you for joining us on this Blog Hop with lots of ideas and tips for you while using this fabulous new Foil Paper. A Blog Hop is a 'circular' group of Blogs that you 'Hop' to (or click the link to) that will give you lots of tips, techniques and inspiration for the topic of the Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy your time with us and enjoy the projects.

Here is my card for today:


I cut the word 'grateful' as well as the leaves out of the Gold Foil Paper on my Cricut...it cut great and is super easy to work with as well as very pretty! I also cut the vine out of the green dotted B&T paper from the Falling for You paper pack on the Cricut. I used the Artbooking Cartridge for all three on 4.25". 


I popped up the Flower paper with Thin Foam Dots and used the small Gold Gems in the centers of the leaves (it cuts out the center of them and I didn&#…

2,4,6,8 Bag Design

Image
Today I am sharing my bag design with you, the third time is a charm right?? (I have tried several times and hopefully can get this one posted.)



This is a basic bag that is 2 inches square.

Cut your paper at 8 1/2" x (The height you want the bag + 2")
So if you want a 6" tall bag, cut your paper at 8" x 8 1/2"
(TIP: be sure to watch your pattern so it will be going the correct direction

Score (with the 8 1/2" side butted up to stopper) at 2", 4", 6",and  8"
Turn paper and score at 2" from the bottom.

Cut as described on the diagram above (the solid lines). Basically you will cut the tabs up to the 2" score line at the bottom, cute off the skinny rectangle on the right and miter all pieces (including top of tab).

I hope you can make sense of this and get a lot of use from it!

Let me know if you have questions, I would love to see your fabulous bags too!
Until next time, Remember to Create it from your Heart,
Debi

Welcome to our Jack Blog Hop! All the projects in this hop will showcase the Jack Paper Pack (x7222B Jack Paper Pack). A Blog Hop is a big 'circle' of projects that you see by 'hopping' from one person's blog to another.
If you are coming from Gerri's Blog you are on the right track.

This paper pack is my most favorite one from the Expressions 2 book. I cannot wait to get my camping layouts done! There are SO many other ways to use this paper pack of course...
Male cards are the obvious choice, however, I've seen some cute female cards done with this paper and don't forget treat bags!

Today I made a treat bag with the tree pattern in the paper pack:
I made a 2,4,6,8 Bag (you can look it up online, or check back here tomorrow for instructions on how to put it together). My bag started with a 6x8 1/2" piece of the tree pattern paper. The finished size is 2" on all sides and 4" tall.


Of course, I had to use the cute Bear Stamp Set and also …
