Fancy Folds and 3D projects ESAD blog hop 10/2017 - Holiday Catalogue



Welcome to my contribution for the Fancy Folds and 3D projects ESAD blog hop using the Holiday Catalogue products - I will admit squeezing a few extra Annual Catalogue goodies in as well.




Today I decided to pull out an old favourite of mine The Gift Bag Punch Board. With Christmas coming very fast I thought some packaging would be great to get started on. I love the Merry Little Christmas spread in the Holiday Catalogue on pages 10-13 so decided to follow suit. I am giving jewellery to those owning the little box plus the bags and the big box will hold a bottle of perfume perfectly. They looked a little naked without some sparkle so I added a little bling with the initials of the gift recipients.

 
 
These 2 are bags made according to the instructions with the paper cut for the large bag 6"x12" and the smaller bag 6"x10" I scored the top at 1" to fold it over on the smaller bag to get the contrast.
 


 
So onto some boxes - still using the Gift Bag Punch Board - now I don't like to reinvent the wheel so I headed over to YouTube to find a video on how to do this. I found Amanda's video HERE and all the instructions including the measurements for the tall box are there.  The little box is a cut down smaller version as I need that size for earrings and a necklace.
 
 
Using the Everyday Label Punch and the Labels To Love Stamp set I have made this tag - its 3 layers, Whisper White, DSP and then the Stamped Christmas Tag.

One Wild Ride - SBTD Blog Hop Masculine Cards



Welcome back my friends am I glad to have you here and join me for another SBTD Blog Hop. The theme for today’s hop is Masculine cards. Some people find these a challenge other no problem at all. I'm right if I have the right stamp set and this time I'm using One Wild Ride.


I had visions of what I wanted to do and really if I'm honest this turned out differently but I do like it! The badge is actually popped up on 2 dimensionals stacked on top of each other for extra height. Initially it didn't have the silver foil and I wasn't loving it. It needed the foil and fibre - if in doubt add fibre - a bit of a motto of mine especially since glitter or glimmer were really out of the question - lol.



When making the inside and envelope 'pretty' I though mmm what about the bike - it really is the feature stamp of the set so here is a second card using the same set a few extra bits but essentially the same supplies. I love that both cards are completely different.
I had a few scraps of stamped card so the banner with JOURNEY on it is in Memento but I have added a couple of layers of 'shine' using our Fine Tip Glue. I had to wait patiently (difficult to do) between layers as they need to be dry before moving on.


Thanks for stopping by I hope you have liked my projects - please hop on over to Tashana's page and see what she has to share with us - til next time!

Cool Treats Summer Fun Birthday card

Wow Busy, Busy here - between illness (yep the dreaded flu struck this home badly), extra shifts at work (record month for births at the hospital - September saw a 20 year high!), eldest preparing for her final school exams and may lack of ability to say no when I really should, had me pulling my hair out!

I needed some brightness in my life so out came Cool Treats to make some cards for my stash - my girls love these for their friends.


 
 
 This is a very easy layered card - the stripe is the background stamp, the ribbon is folded but not under the front panel with the pops on there. Its hard to see but the chocolate is shiny - use your fine tip glue and cover the Chocolate Chip in as it dries glossy. 


 Treats you will need for this delicious card
