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?

Design Team: Misty Christensen Cycle 9 Week 2

By : Team Craftwell

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!

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!

Gazebo Beauty

Have we got a gorgeous project for you! This is Joann's first post on our team, and we are seriously super impressed by her skills! See all the details on this beautiful 3D Gazebo!

Hi everyone,
Today I am really excited to share with you my first project for the Craftwell Design Team featuring the new Teresa Collins ‘Beautiful Words’ embossing folder & ‘Woodgrain’ embossing folder.

One of the big things we love to do in the Summer is spend time at our cottage but we rarely take the time to enjoy it.  We always have too many projects and not enough time.  So this year I want to spend more time sitting in my Gazebo.  With that in mind I decided to create my Dream Gazebo!

I used the Winter Gazebo SVG Kit from SVGCuts.com and papers by Maja Design and Pion Design.  There is a detailed video on how to assemble this kit on the SVGCuts.com website.  
For the roof panels and the panels on the box base I passed them through my eBosser using the Teresa Collins embossing folders before I attached them to the project.  Another trick I like to do with the ‘Beautiful Words’ embossing folder is to ink one side of the folder before you emboss the card stock.  By doing this, you get the appearance of raised letters in the card stock.

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

and a closer look at the base.  It's also a box!   How cool is that : )

and finally I added a few chairs inside which were also embossed with the Teresa Collins Woodgrain embossing folder.

In addition to using the amazing Craftwell eBosser, I used the Teresa Collins ‘Beautiful Words’ embossing folder & ‘Woodgrain’ embossing folders.  If you have not used these embossing folders, I strongly suggest that you give them a try.  Since they are 8.5" x 11" in size you have the capability to emboss many things in 1 single pass which makes creating  just that much easier.
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:

Easter Card

Will Spring Cards make Spring stay permanently? We hope so! See how Misty Christensen is sending some Spring vibes to one lucky friend!

Hello Friends! I'm thrilled to be serving another term on the Craftwell Design Team!
I got to play with Teresa Collins new Wood grain Embossing folders. This is one of the giant A4 size. it will emboss a full 8.5 x 11 inch sheet.

This is what I made with it, a whimsical Easter card.
I used mt eBosser to emboss a piece of aqua cardstock with the wood grain embossing folder. Then I die cut the fence shape. I lightly brushed the fence with white acrylic paint and a foam brush. I really like the effect and it was very easy.

Then I just embellished it with butterflies I punched with Martha Stewart punches, Prima Bling, some of my flowers and one of my sweet Easter images.

I love the look of the wood grain on the fence!

Thanks for peeking!


Thank you Misty!

Scrapbook Layout: Together

We are super excited to be revealing the amazing projects our new design team has been working on! You can really see their style come through the pictures! See how Pam Bray put together today's scrapbook layout! 

So excited to share with you my first design team project for Craftwell using the eBosser and Teresa Collins Woodgrain Embossing Folder. What better way than to use Teresa Collins Everyday Moments Collection...since I titled my layout "Together". My husband and I have been "Together" since we were 16 years old, so Everyday Moments is just perfect for us. I started my project by layering the pretty pattern papers.... 

and then running Yellow Core'dinations through the eBosser using the Teresa Collins Woodgrain Embossing Folder. Love the depth of the embossing...do you see the circle embellishment. I punched 3 circles using a 1" circle punch and embossed them also before I placed them on a pop dot. 

I love to fussy cut, it is one of the my favorite ways to make embellishments....so the flowers on the pattern papers are perfect to do just that. 

The leaves are hand cut and ran through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder...I like to squish, fold, bend, wad them up until I get the shape I want and the embossing folder just makes them come to life...I hope you enjoyed my first project and check out other products and projects here on Craftwell.

 Hugs Pammejo

Thanks Pam!

Home Decor Plaque

We have another beautiful home decor project! Today Liz (Unik By Yes) is sharing a beautiful display plaque using the 'Beautiful Words' folder by Teresa Collins! 

See her tutorial below!

Liz here to share with you a home stretched canvas created using the Teresa Collins Love Words Embossing Folder. 

The story behind:

I have been hooked on the chalk effect for the past few months and when I saw the TC Love Words EF I knew I had to try the "Faux Letterpress Technique" using Black Gesso and White Gelatos. Since I tend to change my decor quite often I am always looking for "timeless" pieces that could easily be relocated around the house, I think this one fits the bill don’t you?

 I went for B&W because I really wanted the message to stand out, and it matches my craft space colors. If you try this at home you could use any colors that suit your own decor J.  

Since I could not stop I created another one to go on our “family picture wall” -hopefully to be finished soon *wink* wink* -

Creative Supplies:

Teresa Collins : Love Words Embossing Folder
Unfinished wood frame ( mine is from Michaels)
Unbleached Muslin ( about 4 “ larger than your fame so you can wrap it around the edges) (Got mine at Joann’s but pretty much any fabric store carries it)
Liquid starch, Iron and Ironing board
Black Gesso
Faber- Castle White Gelato
Black acrylic paint ( for first canvas only)
Chalk Fixative
Clear Finish ( Krylon Matte Clear Finish)
Foam brush and small brush for detailing
Heavy Duty Stapler and Staples
Black card stock to close back of frame when finished
Scissors, ruler and pencil
Masking or painters tape

Craft Level: Intermediate                                
Time: 3-4 hrs due to drying time
eBosser plate combo: ACD + Standard Embossing Folder

That is it for me! I hope you feel inspired to create something unique with your fabulous eBosser and TC Embossing Folders.

Happy crafting!


Thanks Liz! What do you think of this cool technique? Be sure to leave Liz a comment!
