DT: Medical Personal Appreciation Bookmarks


 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a bunch of bookmarks to thank the nurses and medical personnel, who helped me with the health screenings at school.


Here are some closer pictures to show the different bookmarks I made:






Materials:


I used my SNAP to cut the cute little frontline heroes, I stamped before. I used leftover card stocks in white, black and blue to cutout the mats and the bookmarks bases. I stamped the sentiments on the mats, the heroes or cute designs I punched out colorful mats. Later, I added some colors with gel glitter pens. I assembled the bookmarks, fussy cutting the cute little patient bears, and added some twine at the end:


I stamped my name using Distress Oxides by TH in the back:


Here is how I displayed the bookmarks for the medical personnel:




I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Enjoy the cooler days,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

Floral Bouquet

Hello everyone!! Welcome back to the Craftwell blog! This is Berina here today, with this card with a floral bouquet.


I love these Arianna Blooms from Heartfelt Creations. I used the die to cut out the flowers and stamens from card stock and shaped the layers with embossing tools. I die cut the Swirly Accent Spray die, also from Heartfelt Creations, on gold card stock. The leaves are cut using Spellbinders Fern die on green card stock. I used my Cut N Boss to die cut all of them. I adhered all these on a 5" x 7" ivory card base and adhered them down.


Here's a look at the dimension. I added some pearls to the flowers. I didn't add a sentiment to the card on the outside of the card, as I wanted the focus to be on the flowers. 

What do you think? Please let me know. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day!

 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made three Christmas Canvases which was sold at our AHG troop booth in our first Christmas Bazaar for our parish.

Here are some pictures of the details for each canvas:

1st:

Each canvas have these main components:

1. Stencil background for the already painted canvas- I used stencils and glitter / glue (Nuvo dots, FSJ glitter and decofoil glue pen for the first canvas, and IZink Diamonds glitter paints for the third canvas) or Tattered Angel shimmer sprays for the second canvas.

2. a punched border/ horizontal strip- I used Martha Stuart punch around the page punches for snowflakes and ornaments. (lower right corner)

3. a fussy cut vertical strip, showing the rough part of the paper, which I distressed with metallic inks. (upper right corner)

4. two printed mats. Top one 5x7 in. with faux stitching around the border. Lower mat, a little bit bigger, with drie embossing and distressing with ink. (Left upper corner).

5. a cloth pin with wooden embellistment on top to pin a Christmas card or picture (from Dollar Tree, picture shown bellow). I added some glitter for more texture. (left lower corner).

6. Big Title: 
1st Canvas: glitter die cut sentiments (CTMH), digital image in a die cut frame (Tim Holtz die)
2nd canvas: sentiment sticker (CTMH)
3rd. canvas: Stamped sentiment and thin cut (CTMH) and stamped menger image/ thin cut (CTMH) and tag (tattered lace die).

7. and a big 3D embellistment: 
1st. canvas: gliter felt snowflake

DIY Holiday Tags

Hi everyone! Been while and I wanted to share my project.

Katie here with a fun and simple DIY Holiday Tags that anyone can do.

Who needs to buy tags when you can just make your own, right?


Here's what I used to make my tags:

- Craftwell's eBosser

- Recollections Christmas Tags stamp & die set from Michaels

- Hampton Art Mama Elephant Reindeer stamp & die set from Michaels

- ColorBox black stamp dye

- Color pencils

- Recollections Traditional Foil cardstock from Michaels

- Glitter cardstock

- Plain white cardstock

- Kraft paper

- Twine

- Foam adhesive squares


Reindeer Tags:

I started off by stamping the reindeers in black dye onto the plain cardstock then cutting them out from the stamp & die set from Recollections and colored them. Taking the tag die, I cut into one of each of the red & green foil cardstock. I also die cut some stars with the glitter paper. With all the pieces all cut-out and colored in, I used the foam adhesive squares behind each and placed them however I wanted on the tags. Attach each tag onto the gifts with twine and your gifts are ready! Don't worry, on the back there's space for messages.


Finished tag with the red foil cardstock



I also made the Christmas tree tag and it was about the same process, but used some leftover pattern paper for the tree and kraft paper for the tag itself.

I hope you all liked my project and it might not be that fancy, but could be great for those who are beginners. Feel free to left comments and feedback.

Until next time! Happy Holidays! Stay safe and warm.

- Katie

Christmas Treats Basket

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a cute little treat basket, just in time for Christmas treats.


I used the Divinity Designs Bountiful Basket die to die cut the basket out of kraft card stock. It was pretty easy to do. It fit on my snap machine and was a breeze to cut. I needed 2 pieces of each die cut, and it was pretty easy to assemble. I stamped and die cut the Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia and shaped it with embossing tools. I die cut the greens using the Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens die set. I adhered the poinsettia and the greens on the basket and added some Nuvo drops for some berries.

Now, I added some Nuvo drops bottles and Stickles bottles to show you the size of the basket. Now, this is a basket I would love to receive ;)


One more pic, before you leave :)


How did you like this basket today? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great Festive Season and a wonderful New Year!

DT: Thank You Bookmarks and Tags

 


 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made "thank you" tags to go with bookmarks, I bought in Santa Fe, and hand sanitizers for the staff at the school for Thanksgiving.

Here a picture showing the back of the tag and bookmark:


To make the tags, I used my SNAP and the Art Studio Botanical dies. For the back I punched some tags and either stamped them with Simon Says Stamp "Thank You" and StazOn inks, or I layered them with die cut sentiments using the Graphic 45 dies:


I made more than 50 tags, using mostly paper scraps for the die cuts. 


I had some fun making different combinations with the die cuts. Here are some examples:


Some of my favorites:




I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy December,

and stay safe from this pandemic.

JOY

  Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with this beautiful Christmas card. 

Christmas is one of my favorite occasions to make cards for. I love trying different color combos, but I definitely love the traditional colors more, which is apparent by this card. I die cut the pine leaves, ornaments, holly and poinsettia using dies from Spellbinders on white card stock and colored them all with Copics. Coloring them gives a little more dimension. I die cut the letters JOY on gold glitterstock - after all how can you make a Christmas card without even a little glitter! I inked the top and bottom of the card stock with Hero Arts Forever Green ink. I arranged all the die cuts on the card base and adhered them. I added some poinsettia sequins and glitter balls to finish the card.

How do you like my card today? Please do let me know. Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day and stay safe!!

DT: Dia de Los Muertos and Halloween crafts




 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made three different crafts to celebrate Halloween and Dia de los Muertos:

For Halloween, I made these candle holders using Spellbinder dies and my SNAP:


note: for the Volleyball, I cut out one of the cats from the dies cut and replaced with a BoBunny die instead. I gave that candle holder to my daughter's team coach.

Every year, I go to a friend's house to celebrate Halloween and we bring our children Trick or Treating, however, with COVID, we decided to send each other goody bags with candy to each family:



Thus, I made some tags using a spellbinder treat bag tag die, and many of the Crafty Chica dia de los muertos stamps and dies, using my Crafty Chica printed paper pad and my SNAP. 

I also fussy cut some of stamped images from Paper Wings, some die cuts from Fun Stamper Journey (triangle banners), and HeroArts (banners):


I ended up making more than 30 tags. Here are some examples:

Front and back:




Front on the L side and back on the R side:



I also made some Dia de Los Muertos cards for some friends of mine using my left over die cuts and fussy cuts:




October was a very stressful and busy month. So, what do I do when I need to relieve stress?

CRAFT!!!!


I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy projects and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Happy November,
