DT: Teacher Appreciation Bookmarks Paper Clips


This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. 
I made some bookmarks for my children teachers (my post for April) and decided to make some paper clips to go with some cookies that my friend Nancy (Nancy Fancy Cookies) made for me using the same stamp/dies:

I also gave some of the other bookmarks with these cute cookies:

and added the Teresa Collins sentiment die cuts to the back:

The paper clips were easy to convert in bookmarks by adding a piece of folded and glue together cardstock to some extra big regular paperclips I bought at Target:

I added some die cuts to the front and the sentiment and children names stamps to the back:

Summer Banner.

Hello. It's Desiree', here to show my latest banner, one to welcome the new season! It's full of bright colors, and even some glitter.I used some papers from my stash, and some Craftwell awesomeness to make it!
I am speaking of the Snap machine and the eBrush! Love them so much! πŸ’– Anyways one to the banner...

I reached into my stash and pulled out this stack from Hobby Lobby, called "Pixey Stix". Not sure if it's still in stores BUT it's a cute stack of papers. After choosing what papers to use, I cut out the parts for my banner using my electronic cutting machine.
Then Ebrushed the outline of the letters with some tone-on-tone action for more definition. I popped the letters up for dimension too.

After I was finished playing with my eBrush, I decided some embossing was needed! So I busted out some of my fave embossing folders. Just look at that embossing! I love this Teresa Collins, Herringbone embossing folder by Craftwell. 
That is some well defined embossing! Am I right? 
I also cut some dove-tails for my banner by hand. Then it was time to paper piece these cuts together! 
Loved making these! They turned out SO cute!

After all that it was time to assemble the banner, and all the extra embellishments! 
Once everything was strung, stacked, and pieced together, It was time to hang it. 

So I did! I decided to use some blue baker's twine to display this banner. I adore baker's twine. Don't you?!
I am happy with how everything came together! Hopefully you guys like it as much as I do!

As usual I hope all of you are having a blessed day! Thank you for visiting the Craftwell blog! I hope you were in some way inspired and that you will come back soon! Much crafty love!!

Baby Shower Card by Jazmin

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to show you this cute little card I made for my friends baby shower! I used the Craftwell “SNAP” which is now my go to favorite tool! So easy, you can use small scraps of paper and left over card material to create cute cards like the one above! The SNAP is just like the Cut ‘n’Boss, only smaller, lighter, but just as powerful!

I took a picture of the small die I used and my hand for reference! Amazing little tool that now lives on my craft desk!

This card was easy! Just embossed some left over cardstock (I like using all of my scraps!) embossed it with the Teresa Collins mini stripe embossing folder and used Sizzix does to cut the giraffe, circle, and cute geometric shape behind the giraffe for a bit of a 60’s safari vibe! Her shower was animal themed, so I thought this was appropriate πŸ˜‰ I glued all the pieces together and attached to the gift! Easy, and personal!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Until next time!

Inspirational Flower Garden Canvas

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing my latest Craftwell project--an inspiring canvas that will be wonderful anywhere it is placed. This wall art makes a lovely home dΓ©cor piece and would be great for a dorm room or craft space too!
Once again, I used the SNAP Machine, which is fast becoming my new favorite crafting tool. This little guy works just like the original Cut'n'Boss Electric Embosser and Die Cutter, only it's smaller and it packs a whole lotta punch! No manual labor here--just happy, hands-free electronic embossing and die cutting. What could be better?
I first cut all my felt pieces, then arranged them onto a 10x10" stretched canvas covered with a wood grain patterned paper. The large flowers each have a clear sentiment sticker placed in the center. The smaller flowers have button centers with hemp string tied into double bows.
I wanted to experiment with the Teresa Collins Honeycomb Project Die and see if it would work as a chicken wire-type fence for my scene....I think it was a success! I cut thin cardboard (cereal/snack box) material with the Honeycomb Die 3 times, then did the same with a coordinating pattern paper. I then covered each piece of cut cardboard with a piece of cut pattern paper, creating a bit more dimension and interest. Finally, I placed along the bottom portion of the canvas to form my chicken wire fence for my inspirational flower garden!
And that's all for me, folks! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today! I've enjoyed sharing my project with you and I hope you've been inspired in some way to make a fabulous creation of your own with awesome Craftwell products! Until next time, many blessings and happy crafting!

Mixed Media Journal by Karen Jiles

Hi there,

 It’s Karen, sharing this Mixed Media Journal created with the “Honeycomb” Embossing Folder, Honeycomb Project Die, Cut N Boss machine and the Snap machine. I really enjoyed creating this journal. It has loads of visual and physical texture created with the Honeycomb embossing folder and project die. I used a sanding bar to expose the embossed impressions of the honeycomb pattern in the folder and the honeycomb project die was perfect to create a stencil with. Take a look at how this project came together in the tutorial below.


Mini Blank Notebook/Journal

Gray Whitecore Cardstock

Watercolor paper

Corrugated Board

Sanding Bar



Black Ink

Glimmer Mists

Dyed Ribbon




Step 1: Place full sheet of cardstock into the “Honeycomb” embossing folder. Close the folder and insert into the Cut N Boss machine by Craftwell.

Step 2: Remove the embossed cardstock from the Cut N Boss and the embossing folder and trim it down to the size of journal. 

Step 3: Adhere cardstock to blank journal and sand the embossed cardstock with sanding bar to expose the whitecore-creating a distressed effect.  Set journal aside.

Step 4: Run Honeycomb die through the Snap machine with watercolor paper.

Step 5: Release the watercolor paper honeycomb die cut from the die.

Step 6: Place the honeycomb die cut on a layering piece of watercolor paper and spray mists onto the die cut paper transferring the honeycomb pattern to the watercolor paper. Let dry.

Step 7: Using black ink, stamp image onto inked patterned watercolor paper.
Step 8: Using Cropadile, punch holes in stamped watercolor paper. Adhere gessoed corrugated board and eyelet.
Step 9: Adhere stamped watercolor paper and corrugated board layer to the front of the distressed journal cover. Add dyed ribbon to the eyelet and stamped watercolor paper.
Step 10:  Apply gesso to edges of ribbon.  Tap gesso over journal with a paintbrush. Continue embellishing as desired.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope that this Mixed Media Journal has inspired you!

Birch Press Die Cutting

Hey y'all! Kelli here sharing a card I made with the newest Birch Press Dies!

I used these dies with my Craftwell Snap Machine and it worked perfectly! The perfect size for making cards! The cardstock I used was Lawn Fawn and the "Hello" die is from Hero Arts. 

After die cutting everything, I embossed the "Hey Bestie" sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and glued it all together! Leave a comment below to let me know what you think of this card!

Congratulations Grad!

Hello everyone!! It's me Berina here today with a Congratulations card!

I recently made this card for a lovely high school graduate for her graduation!! I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels die set for the label. I gold embossed the Congratulations, which is from a stamp set from Unity Stamps. I started by adhering black card stock on to the card base. I added a strip of double sided adhesive tape along the border leaving a 1/8" margin. Then I adhered gold foil on to it. I then adhered white card stock in the center. I adhered the black die cut label on to it. The graduation cap die is from Whimsy Stamps (now retired). I added outline with gold metallic marker. I cut a strip of paper and rolled it and tied it with a golden thread. I adhered the graduation cap on the top right and the rolled paper on the lower left. That's it! It's pretty easy to make and it is elegant too!! I used the Cut N Boss for all my die cutting. I just love it! I can sit on my chair and just push the cutting plates through it!

How do you like this card? Do let me know in the comments below.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!!

DT Post: Feliz Dia Mama Banner.


This is Veronica from vicky's scrapping passion, sharing with you my next post for Craftwell. 

I made this late Mother's Day gift for my Mom this weekend... well, a week too late. It took me way too long to decide for which pictures to use. 
This project gave me the opportunity to use the Snap machine with many different dies and even from different companies dies at the same time:

and This machine did amaze me. It cut amazingly and without problems. This first time around and not problems with the die depths. Cool.
In short: Once I decided which dies to use and cut them out of the CM embossed cardstock, I embossed some more cradstock using the sentiments embossing folder from Teresa Collins. I cut out the different sentiments and distressed the risen areas using Color Box metallic inks. I cut out the pictures, I have printed out and made the paper flowers using an embossing stylus and distressed some of the leaves. I love how the embossed cardstock pickup the metallic shine. I added some Nuvo Chrystal drops in a coordinating color on the flowers and some letters, and let them dry. Then, I put the whole banner together.

Some closer looks at each panel, in not particular order: as it should say: Feliz Dia Mama (Happy Day Mom)...
