Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Guest Design Projects

Hello everyone!
Today I have a couple of projects to share with you that I created for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. The first project is a fun little autograph style mini album. I used some fun papers from Echo Park and some really cute elements from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

To alter the chipboard postage frames I just used some black craft paint to keep it simple. For the flowers I used white craft paint and added some red bling to the centers. The postage frames and doodle frames went really well with this Disney themed mini album.

Supplies used:
Postage Frames D79C
5 Petal Flowers w/Flourish D12P
Doodle Frame Square BB44A
Doodles Set 1 BB46A

For the second project I created a fun fold out card. I used the Frontier paper collection by Authentique and some really cute barbed wire frames from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. My aunt owns a ranch and is turning 90 and I thought this would make a really great birthday card for her.

Here’s the front of the card.

Here’s the last foldout and a place for me to write my birthday greeting.

To alter the barbed wire frames I used Distress Stain in walnut stain and vintage photo. Then I applied a dab of Antique Bronze Distress paint around the edges.

Supplies used:
Barbed Wire Frame Circle
Barbed Wire Frame Rectangle

Here’s a quick video showing a little more detail. Thanks for watching! Thanks to Gina of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts for the opportunity to design with her fabulous chipboard elements!

Doodlebug Down on the Farm Folio

Hello everyone! A few weeks ago I was teaching a “Bring Your Own Design Paper” Folio class at a Scrapbooking retreat. Everyone in the class did such a fabulous job. It was great to see all of the different paper collections everyone used to personalize their project.

I used the Doodlebug Down on the Farm Collection for the class sample. Here’s a video walkthrough of the folio. This is just a super cute collection! Have a great day!

Simple Stories Rad Grad Cards

Simple Stories Rad Grad Cards

Hello everyone! What do you do when you need some quick graduation cards? Simple Stories Rad Grad collection to the rescue! I created three really quick and easy cards. Here’s a look at the first card I created using this fun collection.
SS Rad Grad Card one
This card measures 5-1/2×5-1/2. The base of the card is black cardstock. I added some layers of black and white behind the design papers to just separate the patterns. The sentiment on the front is one of the 4×4 cut outs from the collection making this card really quick. I used a gold glitter shimmer pen over the writing and stars. I left the inside of this first card blank.
SS Rad Grad Card one open
I did use some of the design papers to finish off the inside.

For the second card I decided to create a fun gatefold style card.
SS Rad Grad Card Two

I used another one of the cut outs for the focal point on the front of the card. Lots of layers with the black and white cardstock to separate the patterns. I had some gold star brads in my stash so I added those to the front as well.

SS Rad Grad Card two open

I used the Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the inside sentiment. I added another cute gold star brad to finish it off.

I decided to create a fun fold card for the third one. Here’s a look at the front of the card.
SS Rad Grad Card Three

Again the cut out is the focal point on the front. I used a little star punch and add some black glitter stars to the upper left hand corner of this Z fold card. Here’s a look at the inside.

I used the same sentiment from the Lawn Fawn stamp set but this time I heat embossed the word “happy” with some gold embossing powder. A couple more black glitter stars and this card is ready to go!

There you have it! Three quick but fun cards for graduation.

Simple Stories Plaid Dad Folio

Simple Stories Plaid Dad Folio

Hello everyone! I have a quick little project to share with you today. I received a sample of the Simple Stories Plaid Dad collection. The sample was only three sheets of the 12×12.
I saw a really cute tutorial on the Everything Authentique Facebook page and I thought it would be the perfect project. In the tutorial they used a graduation themed papers but I wanted to create a Fathers Day version. Its a small little folio created from cardstock.
SS Dad Plaid Folio

I double matted the project using black cardstock for the base and then added a layer of gray cardstock. It has a magnet closure on the front. I created a pocket with one of the cut parts and add a couple of tags with some cute brads that resemble screws.
SS Dad Plaid Open 1

When opened up all of the way there are pockets on the left side and a waterfall in the center.
SS Dad Plaid Open 2

The waterfall has a magnet attached to the back so it can be removed. I used the cute plaid shirt paper as a fun surprise once the waterfall is removed.

I didn’t have a lot of paper left so I did some random blocking of papers to add to the back of the folio.

This was a really cute project and came together really quick! Sending this to my Father in Law for Fathers Day! I love the fun saying, “Sawdust is Man Glitter”.
Have a great week and checkout the fun tutorial over on the Everything Authentique Facebook page.

Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe Mothers Day Card

Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe Mothers Day Card

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by! Today I want to share a Mothers Day card created with the beautiful Floral Shoppe collection by Graphic 45. This collection is stunning. The rich colors are so pretty and perfect for a Mothers Day card.

G45 Floral Shoppe Mothers Day Card

My card measures 6×6 and is a top folding card. Since I was creating this card for my Mother-in-law, I knew she would love the red florals from this collection. I used one of the journaling cards that I trimmed down a bit as the focal point for the card. I added a white die cut heart doily and some flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts as well a bow using my favorite May Arts silk ribbon. Here’s a closer look at the front of the card.
G45 Floral Shoppe Mothers Day Card Closeup
I used some chipboard from the collection as well as one of the fun stamps from the sticker sheet. I spelled MOM using the stickers from the Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas sticker sheet. They were the perfect size and color to layer onto the tag element from the pockets and tags.
I wanted to finish off the inside with some of the beautiful papers as well. I also stamped my sentiment onto one of the journal cards that I trimmed down using a great stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Happy, Happy, Happy.

There’s my card. If you haven’t gotten the Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe collection I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed. Now to get my card ready for the mail! Have a fabulous week!
