First of all here are the winners of my HOF3 faves list. If your name is listed here email me and I will get you your prize!
And did you see the project that is being featured on the webshow tomorrow night?
Basically it is a FREE class from Heidi Swapp....does it really get any better than that? So you can create with people from all over the world! Pretty cool, hope you will join us.
Head over to Heidi's blog to see the supplies you will need to have on hand to create this super cute project! See you tomorrow night. I am off to gather my supplies.
I can't believe that it is already Monday again but I have a quick share for you today.
After the tutorial Rhonna posted here and the fab happy card Heidi made with this on the live webshow last Wednesday I was inspired and decided I would try my hand at my own version and this is what I came up with! (If you are not tuning in each wednesday night you are missing out on a ton of fun and inspiration!) This card folds open to reveal tickets that open accordion style to spell happy and then I have typed birthday on the inside of the card.
I love the way that it turned out and it was super easy to make.
First I printed several of my backgrounds on the front and back for my cards. For the main card I used the turquoise dot on one side and the cream ledger on the other. Both are from this background set. I then opened this ticket set, and printed the letters to spell happy on the ticket strip. I then printed mine on Epson Premium Presentation Matte paper....it is my favorite!
Fold the small ticket around the back side of the card and staple with your tiny attacher. This is what the back of the card will look like.
Place a glue dot on the back of the letter ticket "a" and adhere to the inside front of the card letting the letter "h" fold around to the front of the card. That way when the card opens the word happy will accordion out.
I also made this card using the same concept but with only two of the tickets:
For this one I added the words happy birthday (the ticket on the inside is blank) and folded it over the front flap of the card and stapled it. The inside ticket would be a great place to sign the card.
For this card I used the grey dot and the cream ledger...again all backgrounds I used can be found here.
I hope you enjoyed it....let me know if you have any questions.
for you to enjoy the 40% off coupon we have for you at the site. It is a one time only deal though so if you have already used it thank you...but if not what are you waiting for?
I thought I would share a few of my "MUST HAVES" from the site which I use almost on a daily basis or I have made and they turned out fab!
The White rounded frames I use every day on almost every project I post here. So versatile and just make all your photos sassy!
The Baby's First Year Printable - I have been using this documenting Blakely's first year and it has been so much fun!
The Easter Printable Mini Book - I made those for each child last year and for each set of grandparents as well...they loved them!
The Birthday Queen and Love Story Mini Book. I think these are great "follow up" gifts when you have been invited to a party or shower. Just be sure to take lots of pics at the event and then drop them into the digital template and have them printed as a thank you for including you in their day.
The backgrounds that Rhonna has created. There is a little something for everyone and every occasion!
And last but not least...the calendar kit. This is such a great tool to have to create those gifts that everyone loves to receive!
What have you been purchasing from the site? Leave me a comment and I will pick a few winners to receive some of the products I have listed here.
Each day we have posted a little something to get your creative juices flowing and to take a look back at some of the cool things we have done this year and today is no different. Just lookie at the little tutorial Rhonna just posted on the house blog!
No matter how long I have been doing something and decide I know what I am doing then Rhonna posts one of her tutorials and I learn something new every time! lol Today she is featuring the aged tool kit and I have to say that this is a very versatile tool kit. Just go and check out what she has done with it!
And just to prove it look at what I did with these photos...
These are three of the charms I created for my local class using these. You could even put the aged overlays on the jewelry printables to give them a new look..dang it!
And as I was reading her tutorial the lightbulb went off....on printables....what did you say? Why hadn't I thought of this? So not only has she given us these super cool backgrounds that we can print and then double print with our monograms, book templates, countdowns....but we can alter the fab backgrounds to give them a fresh look? So of course I had to go and do that since I have nothing else pressing in my life right now (insert eye roll here) but it was worth it. The aged kit is subtle but packs a punch and I love it! I didn't think I could love these banners anymore than I already do....but I think I do!
Head over to the site to check them out and read Rhonna's tutorial and you just might have your own aha moment! And because we love you, now through Friday the 19th they are all 50% off.
Happy Birthday to us!
for my local class that I teach this Saturday, February 20th. I always like getting to teach even if it is only once every other month. It's nice to actually get out of the house with no kiddos and talk to adults!
Makes me happy!
and that is what we have been doing this week over on the inspiration house blog. So if you haven't been checking it out then you are missing out on the great deals and inspiration we are featuring each day.
Today we featured the monogram kit. It is such a versatile must have in your arsenal and I proved that to myself once again today when I whipped up this card set for a friend. I needed it to be fast and I needed to use what I had on hand since I was low on time and patience to leave the house with sick kids. And I think I pulled it off beautifully if I do say so myself!
I first opened my monogram kit, chose the appropriate letter for the person I was making them for and then used the .pdf file and printed it on top of the french oh la la backgrounds (which are some of my favorites!)
I made a set of six cards using bazzill white dotted swiss as the card base, tied them with some vintage buttons and jewels and voila! Instant card set in about 15 minutes total and that included taking the photos to share with you, not bad.
So in honor of today's celebration...
so I have gotten quite a few emails about the heart boxes that include the necklaces so I thought I would try to answer a few questions and show you a few more detailed images on this heart box that I have used the Le Bistro Rose Kit on. The necklace actually serves as the handles of the box, you can take it in and out to wear it or leave it in the heart box for display.
I have also gotten questions on where I buy my jewels for embellishing my projects. I still use lots of vintage goodies that I pick up in my travels but I also use a ton of jewels that I have purchased here. She has a great selection and they are very reasonably priced so check those out. For a complete supply list for this project you can go here.
If you have any specific questions email me and I will be happy to answer them.
