It's a Girl!

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a cute pink card for a cute baby girl!

For the card front, I decided to go with a shaker rattle in pink. I die cut a circle frame using 2 circle dies and made the shaker part. I die cut a tiny circle for the handle part. I added a tiny bow. I die cut a piece of white card stock with one of the dies from the Winnie & Walter Georgette die set. I adhered it on to an A2 piece of pink card stock. I adhered the rattle on to it and stamped the sentiment Congratulations from the Brutus Monroe - Sharon's Script stamp set. Now when you open the card:

It's a pop-up crib on the inside :) Here's how I made the pop-up crib part - I cut thin strips of Brutus Monroe - Brown Butter card stock in few different lengths. Here's the first one, which is for the horizontal piece.

Here's a bunch of small ones, which are for the vertical rods.

Here's 4 of a little longer ones, which are for the corner pieces. These are double the thickness and scored in the middle, lengthwise.

I started by adhering the corner pieces on to one of the horizontal piece, like this.

Then I adhered the vertical bars to the horizontal frame.

I adhered the other horizontal piece to all the vertical bars.

Here's a closer look at it.

I die cut pieces of patterned paper with the same border die from the Winnie & Walter - Georgette die set and adhered it on to the inside of the crib, to imitate the crib bedding. I adhered pieces of patterned paper on to the inside of the card, to imitate wall paper. I then adhered 2 sides of the crib on to the 2 sides of the inside of the card. To make the mobile, I die cut the flowers and butterflies using the dies from Karen Burniston - Accordion Die set on the Brutus Monroe - Watermelon glitter stock. I used a thread to hang them from the pop-up part at the top. I die cut a 'H' using the Whimsy Stamps - Alphabet dies, for the first letter of the baby's name.

Here's another look at the card front:

A Daddy Loves

June greetings, all you beautiful crafty peeps!
Today I am sharing a 12x12 layout I created featuring
my youngest son many years ago and my hubby!
I started out choosing my pics that was super easy, I adore this set of pics!
Next was to choose my papers, again that was easy!
The cog paper is from an old DCWV stack that has been in my stash forever.
Next I die cut some of my paper using my beloved Snap machine.

Then I cut my pics down to 4x4 and cut some more paper using my paper trimmer to mat my pics on.
I did a little distressing and inking around my mat edges.
After adhering my matted pics to my background paper, I needed to get an idea of where I wanted to place my die cuts. So far loving this!

Next I picked a few embellishments from my craft stash, and finish this layout!

I took my "What makes a daddy?", sticker and placed it on my label die cut and mounted it to alack shadow cut, I made using my electronic cutting machine.
At the bottom of that I took some Tim Holtz, alphas and adhered the word "Love" the bottom.
I made another small embellishment by placing the word proud on a one inch circle using a circle paper punch, then stacking that on another die cut.
I then clustered my embellishments on top of the "live" bingo card. I also clustered some more cog die cuts and placed a genuine tag and a little brad.
I really love that hat pin by Prima! I was hoarding it forever! LOL

And there it is all finished! As always I hope somehow you were inspired by my project!
I also want to sincerely wish all the dads out there an early, but very blessed and happy Father's day!
Specially to those ones who have to do and be everything on their own!
Please come back to the Craftwell blog and visit often!

Happy 1st Birthday Card

Hi everyone!
My name is Katie and I'm new to Craftwell's Design Team.
For my first post, I made a 1st birthday card using the SNAP machine and here's how it came to be.


SNAP machine
Leftover paper from white, yellow, flower pattern, light pink and glossy glitter. 
A6 Beautiful Words embossing folder by Craftwell
Cupcake and number by Recollections
Happy Birthday Die by Spellbinder
Clear Glue by Aleene's
3D Foam Squares
Scissors from Craftwell's tool kit

First, we want to start by making the background to the card and cutting it close to the A6 dimensions. I ran the embossing folder through the SNAP and you have your embossed paper.

Next, we cut into the flower pattern and light pink paper with the cupcake die.
And do the same with the glossy glittery paper use the number 1 die.

Here comes the fun part! Time to assemble the cupcake, which is really easy and quick. 
So I wanted the frosting to be pink and cut above where the cupcake wrapping would be. I did the same with the other cut out, but did the opposite and cut top where the frosting would be. Make sure you leave a little room so you have space to glue the frosting to it.

I took the embossed yellow paper and glued it to a white folded paper. You can cut it to whatever size you desire, but I just cut it about half a quarter inch more and glue them together. 
Next, I stuck a 3D foam square behind the cupcake and centered it in the middle. You will notice I place the number 1 last because I couldn't decide if I wanted it floating above or place it into the cupcake. In the end, I just glued at the top of the cupcake and I think it looks pretty good there :)

So... I went a little extra and designed the inside. 
Added another layer of yellow paper and a message inside of the card. I used whatever leftover paper I still had and cut out the words "Happy Birthday". And again, you all can design the inside however you want and have fun with it!

The end result of the front and the inside.

I hope everyone enjoyed this tutorial and got inspired for your next card! :)

Just For You

Hello everyone! This is Berina here today, with a CAS card.

I embossed a piece of white card stock with the Bella Rose embossing folder on my Cut N Boss. Then I inked it with Brutus Monroe Stargazer ink. I love coral color and I see that I'm using it often now. I then die cut the sentiment label using a die from Spellbinders and stamped the sentiment, that coordinates with the die. 

This is a simple card, that is easier for making in sets. Please do let me know your thoughts. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

Only A Mother, (altered canvas)

Hello! Welcome to the Craftwell blog. Desiree', with you again!
Today, I'm sharing with you an altered canvas that I created.
Of course I started out doing what everyone does, choosing
what ingredients to use.
Here's a snapshot of what I decided to use.

So after that was decided, I knew I wanted to emboss!
I knew the embossing folder I wanted to use too, the Bella Rose
Before I embossed I cut my paper to 5x7 and sprayed it with 
some Pearl Glimmer Mist.
Then I fired up my Cut 'N' Boss, stacked up my embossing "sandwich", and placed it all in my Cut 'N' Boss. 
Once the machine was done, my paper was beautifully embossed!

I painted my canvas and did a little bit of sanding to bring out the Bella Rose texture even more!
Next step was to do a little decoupage and adhere my paper to the canvas.

After that dried, I was ready for stacking and placing the embellishments! Yay!
I took some pretty heart dies from my stash and cut them out with my Cut 'N' Boss machine. This machine is epic!
Not only is it not manual, it also has a 8.5 x 12 cutting/embossing abilities! 
I love it. JS!
I placed my sticker with the Mother quote on it onto a piece of my shimmer paper, and then fussy cut around the sticker.
I adhered my little heart to the canvas, popped the bigger heart on some pop dots, and did the same for my fussy cut sticker for dimension.
I placed them on the canvas with some hot glue and added my gold bow.

Next, I clustered my flowers, a couple of leaves together, and then hot glued them to the canvas.
After that I took a crown die cut from my stash, I have had forever and added some bling and flat back pearls to it, then glued it to my canvas.
At this point, I was happy with where this project was and she was complete! A 3.5 x 3.5 photo can be ttucked behind / beside the hearts. 
At the time of the post I just didn't have the pic with me.

As always I hope you were inspired! I hope you liked
 what you saw here today!
Thank you for visiting the Craftwell blog, please don't be a stranger.
I also want to wish every mom past, present, and future a super blessed Mother's Day!
