Lilly's Handmade "Beautiful Dreamer" Cards

Welcome back to the blog, guys!!! Today I’m sharing some fun handmade cards I made using the “Beautiful Dreamer” collection.

I love how fun and bright these handmade cards look. That cute bird is one of my favorite elements from the collection.

What I usually do to make my hand made cards is use a 8.5 x 11 piece of 110lb cardstock, cut 5x7 cards, and decorate away. Add a little stitching and some cute layering, and you got yourself a card your crafty friend would love.

One of my crafty secrets is that when I don’t have much time to craft, I tend to make a cute card because they are fast and easy to make :) Thx for stopping by guys, catch you on my next post 💗

Kellie's Practically Perfect Card

Hi there, Kellie here with you today to share another card I created, only this time it's with the adorable Practically Perfect kit.

TFC_7

Which I mean if you were to ask me, it's not practically, it IS perfect.  The colours in this kit are so vibrant and fun and I have more to share with this kit, soon.  Firstly let's talk about how this card came together.


TFC_7

To create a card like this, which please do and share as we would love to see it!  You will only need cardstock, unless you choose to use a pattern paper from the kit.  Then for your tool sides of things you will simply need, double sided tape and scissors.  That simple right?


TFC_7

The strips again, YES I know, are you sick of me sharing them on cards?  Well honestly sorry, not sorry, haha!  It will happen again.  They are like a form of washi tape really.

I'm super happy with how this card came out and I can't wait to post it out and make someones day a little brighter.

Kellie's You + Me Quick and Easy Card

Hi there Fairytale Club fans, Kellie here with you today to share a sweet card I created using the NEW You + Me kit.

TFC_2

Now if you know me and my style already you will NOT be surprised by the fact that I A. made a card and B. used the strips from the bottom of the 12x12 pattern paper within the YOU + ME kit.  I love them and so far I've been making them with almost every kit since being part of this creative team.

TFC_2

Honestly I usually look back on the card I made the time before and use it as a sketch, so all my cards have the same style, but all so different at the same time, does that make sense?  I'm sure it does.

TFC_2

To make a quick card is SUPER easy, especially with the kits!  Seriously give it a try.  Some pattern and the die cut ephemera and you have yourself a quick and easy card.  Can I also point out that you don't have to make a card to show your love for someone just on one day, share the love any day!

Do you make cards?  I feel like it's not a thing these days, sending handmade cards?  So why not send one to make someones day that little brighter!

Project Life Instax Album - December Daily, with Aimee

Happy Saturday all, can you believe that there is only 9 days till Christmas. Wow!

This year for my December Daily, I’m using The Project Life, Instax Album. This is a fun size to use because you can use all different sizes of page protectors. The biggest bummer about this album, is that it’s a traditional album style, and there are no pockets for extra little trinkets like tags etc.

When I saw the Library Card Pocket form the “December Dreams” Kit, I just knew it was perfect for the inside of my album.

I used my typewriter to fill out the card, and it’s perfectly imperfect. Just like a library card would be. I choose myself as the author, cause I’m the one creating this book {look I totally messed up and put my name on the wrong line, did you even notice?}.

I choose the title of the book to be “December Daily 2018”. And for all the check-out days I but my name and date that I worked in the book. I love how I mixed it up with the red and black writing {you know, as if someone else was doing the checking out?}. I even forgot to capitalize the A on one of the lines.

I also made some tags to slip in my DD using die cuts and the sequin mix from the “December Dreams” Kit. I just used my Fuse tool, metal die cuts to trace. I placed the “ingredients” inside of the fuse sleeve and placed my metal die over making sure all the “ingredients” fit within the die cut, and just fused around it! Viola . . . some custom tags!

Are you using the “December Dreams” in your December Daily?

XOXO, Aimee

Kellie's "December Dreams" Manufacturer's Strips Card

Kellie here with you to share a card I made with the strips along the bottom of each 12x12 patterned paper that comes with the December Dreams kit.  I did this last month with the Magical and Mischievous kit.  I'm planning to try and build a little card collection ready at hand when I need.  Best of all they are SUPER easy to make.

TFC_CARD_4

Always make sure to cut off those strips at the bottom - don't go throwing them away thinking you won't use them, because OH boy you will once you start!

TFC_CARD_1
Here is how I created this Christmas card. First of all I started with a base of white cardstock. Then I worked my way through the strips of off-cuts, as I mentioned, from the bottom of the 12x12 papers included with the December Dreams kit. Once laying them out and moving them around, and I was happy with the layout, I got out the ephemera packet that comes with every kit. 

TFC_CARD_2

Ephemera are my favourite thing to use and always the first thing I look through when my kit arrives.

Add on a flair from the kit and BAM you have yourself an easy, beautiful card!  See what I mean?  Super easy.  Give it a try!

Michelle's "December Dreams" Christmas Cards

Hey there, crafty friends and welcome to the most wonderful time of the year! I’m back with another craft, this time using the December Dreams kit from The Fairytale Club. I love the recent trend of using pastel colors for all things Christmas, and so this kit was just perfect for all my crafting needs! First up, I need to knock out Christmas cards.

I think sending cards at the holidays is such a fun way for me to be crafty, and also send someone a little mail to remind them that I’m thinking of them. The first item that caught my eye was the sparkly silver snowflake ornament, of course! Then as I dug into my kit more, I came across the die cuts where I found the tree cup, cupcake, and the sugar plum fairy! I used foam squares to add height and dimension to it, and the first one was finished.

For the next card, I knew that I wanted to use a lot of red. The pink and red polka dot paper made the perfect base! From there, I mounted the red bow paper on to a piece of craft paper, and used red tinsel around that! I love how sparkly the tinsel is. It also reminds me of vintage christmas decorations, which matched perfectly with the Nutcracker die cut piece! Finally, I finished it off with a tag.

Lastly, I knew that with all the sweets and candies in this kit, I just had to do one with that theme! The blue paper with candy designs was just perfect! This card was a bit easier since the pattern on the paper was so cute! Next I fussy cut the candy cane out of one of the pages and added a bit of shimmer with iridescent embossing powder! Then I finished it up with the gingerbread house and a couple die cuts, and there you have a sweet Christmas card!

I love this kit from The Fairytale Club so much, and I can’t wait to work with it some more! Hope you all have a happy and crafty holiday season!

Michelle's Halloween Banner

Hey there, crafty friends! Michelle here, and I’m back with a new project using the Magical and Mischievous kit from The Fairytale Club! I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to be one of those people whose home is decorated for every season. And since I spend so much time in my home office, I thought I would take this kit of magical Halloween goodies and make a cute banner for my bookshelf!

I started by selecting five patterns from the 12x12 sized pages and cutting them into the banner pieces. Then I selected three cards from the cut-out sheet that coordinated well with the patterns I chose.

Then it was time for the fun part, which was to add all the trim and ephemera! This step always makes the biggest mess but it is also the most fun! I spread all the bits and pieces across my desk, and through trial and error, I see what works best.

I really like to play with different textures, which is something you can see in this project. Most of the banner pieces have cute ephemera bits, as well as some sort of textured elements, such as ribbon or the ever-so-cute pom poms!

After each banner piece was all done, I laid them all out and used hot glue to attach them to the orange and white string I happened to have on hand. Being a crafty lady is so fun! You never know what kind of supplies you may find in my stash.

The final step was to add the mini pom poms to the strand, and hang it up! I love how this came together, and it adds a little seasonal touch to the office!

I hope you enjoyed this fun and festive project! It demonstrates just how versatile paper crafting can be and I hope this inspires you to try something new. Happy crafting!
