Joy Tag

Misty Christensen loves the shabby chic look, and with good reason! She can turn any paper into something worth framing! 

See what she created today!

Hello Friends!
As I'm typing this up, I'm realizing that it will post after Easter. Sorry about that, but I hope you still enjoy it!
It's a little Shabby Easter Tag, with sweet little vintage image.

I love to go to tag sales to look for vintage laces and ribbons like the ones I've used here. You can find them for a song and I think they are so much prettier than they make now. :)  I added a little piece of dirtied up seam binding for a little pop of color.(distress ink)
I love to add these little butterflies to my tags...butterflies and Shabby Chic just seem to go together.
A little bit of Prima trim adds a little sparkle. I can make one flourish last for 10 projects!

This is one of my favorite Vintage Easter images, such sweet little chicks.
I cut the "JOY" out of a piece of cardstock that was embossed using my eBosser and Teresa Collins Beautiful Words embossing folder. (you can see the folder in my previous post) 

Once again, a very easy project that can be used on a gift, or as an embellishment in your scrapbook or mini album.

Thanks for peeking!


Thank you Misty!

Design Team: Pam Bray Cycle 9 Week 3

By : Team Craftwell

Pam Bray has an eye for making layouts! See how she used the Teresa Collins eBosser folder, 'Beautiful Words' to add some texture to her pretty scrapbook page!

My "Memories" Layout bring back sweet smiles for me....this is the Crosley Mansion in Sarasota, FL where are youngest son and his new bride was married two years ago. It is a beautiful location on the breath taking Sarasota Bay. I used the Teresa Collins Beautiful Words Embossing Folder which I thought worked perfectly with Black Kraft Core'dinations paper, using a sanding block to distress the top lightly to expose the core center of the paper...I just love the look of the embossed paper. I place the embossed paper on top of the yellow pattern paper from the Teresa Collins Carolina Breeze Collection, adding the paper borders from the embellishments sheet and placing the geometric paper to the page. 

I added Want2 Scraps Flourish Bling and fussy cut flowers that I made from one of the patten papers from the collection to the left corner of the layout, place enamel centers in the center of the flowers and at the top of the layout. Place the "Memories" die cut from the die cut paper on pop dots and add to top of layout. I hope you enjoyed my layout and check out the other inspiring projects on the Craftwell Blog and the eBosser Products in the Craftwell Store.


Thank you Pam!

Revamped Notebook

Liz is back with another fun & practical tutorial! See what she created below!

Hello Crafty friends!
Liz here today to share with you a revamped notebook using the eBosser and Teresa Collins Beautiful Words.  I while ago I got a 3” square notebook at my local craft store but the cover wasn’t very appealing so a makeover was due and I truly LOVE the new and improved version! ;) I hope you do too!

Creative supplies:

Teresa Collins Beautiful Words EF
Core’dinations Paper Vintage collection
Darice’s Sand it Set
Craft knife
Strong Hold Permanent double sided tape (I used Scotch 3M ATG Tape Glider Gun)
Mod Podge (Matt Finish)
Eyelet and Eyelet setter (I used Crop-a-dile Big Bite)

eBosser plate combo: ACD + Standard Embossing Folder (for tissue paper)
Craft level: Easy
Time: 20- 30 mins. Depending on drying time

Creative process:

·         Trace the perimeter of your notebook on the back of your paper adding about 1/16” all around.
·         Trim and score the spine lines.
·         Position it on the portion of you Teresa Collins Beautiful Words E.F, you want to use and run it through the fabulous eBosser - remove any excess paper with your craft knife once the project is finished.
·         Sand the word (s) you want to stand out.
·         Give your paper a quick dust. Set aside.
·         Position your ribbon on the top right corner inside of the back cover.
·         Using the eyelet setter make a hole through both, ribbon and cover.
·         Set the eyelet.
·         Glue your embossed piece to the cover using your permanent adhesive, being careful to “contour” the spine very well. For me it worked to glue from the edge towards the spine and “break” the resistance of the paper by pressing the spine cover between my thumb and index finger to create sort of a “u shaped” deep groove.
·         Open and close to make sure the embossed cover is fully attached to the notebook’s cover.
·         Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to finish.
·         Let Dry

What do you think? I hope you give this a try and that you will share with us your master piece! Don’t forget to stop by my blog http://unikbyyes.blogspot.com/ so you can take a look at another project I created using this fabulous embossing folder and the eBosser!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a crafty day!


Thanks Liz!

Hello again Craftwell Fans! It's Monday Morning, Do you know what that means!? Another project from me again! I hope that you are as excited to see it as I am to share it with you!! This project is pretty special to me as it was displayed on HSN with Teresa Collins and the eBosser when they did their 24 hour paper crafting event on March 24th! LOL See that tiny speck up front!? Yep!! That's my Card! 

And here is a MUCH better photo ;) Can you see it now?

I used the Teresa Collins eBosser Woodgrain Folder and ran Core'dinations Color Core Cardstock through my eBosser and sanded to expose the core.

For Sandwich instructions in the eBosser see below examples. 

I wanted this project to look like a tree with lovers initials carved into it. I had the perfect stamps for it! I used Sweet Stamp Shop stamps and stamped onto Kraft Cardstock and cut a banner out and fussy cut around the heart and adhered 3 small DCWV Pearl Embellishments.

Products Used:

Core'dinations Color Core Cardstock

Bunny Basket

Easter is upon us, and if you are needing to come up with an Easter basket, be sure to check out this gorgeous basket by Joann Jamieson! See the gorgeous photos below!

Hi everyone,
Today I want to share with you another fun project featuring the Teresa Collins ‘Woodgrain’ embossing folder and since it is almost Easter I am making a Easter basket.
You can find the basket here from 3 Under 3 and More.  They also have a nice tutorial on how to assemble the basket.  I increased the size of the pieces to 150% and for all of the strips and the handle after they were cut I used my eBosser and the Teresa Collins ‘Woodgrain’ embossing folder to give the pieces the look I wanted.  The bonus of this embossing folder is I did all of my pieces in 1 single pass which is a real time saver.

Here is a closer look at the bottom showcasing the gorgeous Teresa Collins Woodgrain embossing folder

The sandwich combination that is ideal when using these embossing folders is:
Platform A
The embossing folder with the card stock inside
Platform C
Platform D

Here is a closer look at the products I used:


I hope to see you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!


Thank you Joann! 

Isn't this bunny basket super gorgeous? And what do you think of Joann's clever use of emboss?

Scrapbooking is designed to record those special moments in your life. Misty Christensen did just that in today's project!

Hello Friends!
I'm here with another project for Craftwell, showcasing Teresa Collins new embossing Folder Beautiful Words. I have to say this is a very versatile embossing folder. I've seen beautiful home decor made from a full embossed sheet and adorable cards and scrapbook captions cut from an embossed sheet.

I made a little pocket that can be used as a card or as an embellishment for a mini album or scrapbook page.
I ran the embossing folder with a piece of aqua cardstock, through my eBosser.
Then I just simply cut out the "U", "R" and "Special" from the sheet and inked it up to make the words pop.

A couple roses and butterflies add girlie whimsy to the block letters.

 I added a pretty little Fairy tag ~ If I use this as a card, a sentiment can be wrote or stamped on the back. If I us it in a mini, it can be used as a journal spot or a picture mat  

Thanks for taking a peek!

-Misty Christensen

Thanks Misty!

Design Team: Pam Bray Cycle 9 Week 2

By : Team Craftwell

Our Design Team has been so inspired to create home decor with Teresa Collins' 'Beautiful Words' folder, and we couldn't be more thrilled! See what Pam Bray created today! 

Teresa Collins Beautiful Words Embossing Folders is becoming on of my favorite folders...so when I seen this frame at my local craft store for  99cents I knew right away that I was going to use the folder and one of the Fleur de Lis Chipboard Book from Sin City Stamps to create my frame with. I started by embossing Black Kraft Paper from Core'dinations along with the Beautiful Words Folder for my background, sanding it off lightly with my sanding block to expose the Kraft center.

I covered the Fleur De Lis with a piece of the yellow honeycomb paper from the Everyday Moments Collection using a glue stick, trimming the access paper away with an Xacto knife and placing on the embossed paper that has been placed in the frame.

Once the Fleur De Lis is adhered to the frame, apply your rub-ons....

I made my flowers using Teresa Collins Summer Stories Paper,  a scallop die cut along with fussy cutting out leaves. Once my flowers were formed I placed them along with the leaves and ribbon to the center of the Fleur De Lis, Added a long pearl bead and placed the work "Believe" to a metal paper pick to the top of the arrangement....I hope you check out other inspiring projects on the Craftwell Blog as well as the fabulous Craftwell eBosser...

Hugs Pammejo

Thanks Pam!

Paper Luminary

Liz always has bright ideas! And today, we have one of those you can recreate at home! See today's project by Liz!

Hello Crafty friends!
Liz here today to share with you a paper luminary created using the eCraft and eBosser. If you have visited me before, you know I love paper luminaries. Today I am sharing one created for my Twin niece who loves green and wants to cover the flame less candle on her nightstand.

Creative supplies:
Teresa Collins Beautiful Words EF
Tissue paper
Craft Spray Adhesive
12” Cardstock ( mine is from DCWV’s Lemon Flower Stack)
Double sided sticky tape
Faber-Castell PIT Artist Pen big brush in Light Yellow Glaze (104)
eBosser plate combo: ACD + Standard Embossing Folder (for tissue paper)
eBosser plate combo: ABCD + Metallic Shim for thin metal dies.

Creative process:

Using Craft Spray Adhesive join (2) layers of tissue paper. Place the tissue paper on the area of your Teresa Collins Beautiful Words E.F. that you want to use. Run through the fabulous eBosser - since the frame is 5” I cut the tissue paper at 5 ¼” and removed any excess with scissors once the project was finished.

Highlight the words you want to stand out. Using your PITT Pen  color the words directly onto the folder (using the back of the front panel) and run it through the eBosser again, being careful to avoid shifting of the paper. For a darker color, reapply before removing your paper from the E.F.

The base was cut using the eCraft. And cut the window using MCT 4” jounaling tag die and eBosser.

Put the luminary together using double sided permanent tape.

Interested in the eCraft Shop Pro cutting file? Please visit my blog: http://unikbyyes.blogspot.com/, leave me a message and a way to send it to you. The window will be different since for this I used a metal die. Plus there will be an extra project there featuring this fabulous embossing folder.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a crafty day!


Thank you Liz!

Framed Art

Happy Monday! Today we have a beautiful easy embossed project for your home! See what Jessica Kephart created today!

Happy Monday Morning! Lol - yeah, right huh? Well, I have a Happy little project that might hopefully brighten your morning! Today I am creating a Matted and Framed Home Decor Piece with the Teresa Collins eBosser woodgrain folder. 

If you haven't heard me rave about the eBosser, this sweet machine is just perfect for Home Decor Projects with their 8x10 embossing folders! 

I used a yard sale find frame that I painted and distressed. It already had a mat that I incorporated into the project as well. 

I cut my Core'dinations Color Core Cardstock to 8x10 and embossed it in the eBosser with the Woodgrain Folder by Teresa Collins and sanded it to reveal the Core Color. I also cut my dies from CAS-ual Fridays in a contrasting color {black}. I used a Spray adhesive to adhere the Die cuts to the Woodgrain Embossed Background, and added a sweet Teresa Collins sentiment sticker to the bottom.

Whale Cupcake Topper Tutorial

Today we have a slightly different tutorial from our resident Scrapper, Sam! She recently celebrated her adorable babies 1st birthday and no detail was forgotten! See how she transformed her babies special day into a sea adventure!

Hello everyone! This is Sam today to share a simple tutorial on how I made these cupcake  muffin toppers for my baby’s first birthday.

Firstly, you will need a whale stamp set with coordinated dies. The stamp set and dies I used is from Studio Calico.

I use washi tapes to position the dies on white cardstock to minimize wastage of papers. I die cut about 40 whales on 2 pieces of A4 sized cardstocks.

Once finished die-cutting, I started stamping the whales in blue and orange inks to match the theme of his birthday party.

Fiskar Stamp Press is very handy now as it is makes positioning the stamp on die cuts much easier.

Then I stick toothpicks behind the whales with washi tapes and it is done!

It is very simple and took me about an hours to finish 40 cupcake toppers.

Thanks for looking! XoXo, Sam.

Supplies Used:
Papers –American Crafts
Stamp & Dies – Studio Calico
Die Cutter- eBosser by Craftwell 

Others –washi tape, Hero Arts Shadow Ink, toothpicks

Thank you Sam! And Happy Birthday to baby Ivan!  Check out all of Ivan's party decor one Sam's blog!

And speaking of cute things, how do you like Sam's embellished ebosser?
