Safari Themed Party Lootbag and Memo Pads

Hello fellow crafters!  Im so excited to share my latest projects using the DCWV Alphabet Zoo Stack  I received from BEE HAPPY CRAFTS. If you have time, please visit their BEE HAPPY Facebook Page to see what's in store.  They have lots of stuff for paper crafts and party needs.



I was thinking of a baby shower. Since the stack had oranges, pinks and lime green colors, I imagined that these would make a bright combination for party giveaways and loot bags. 

Here's what I came up!


LOOT BAG
I used a Sizzix pro die to make this bag. A pro die is 12x12 in size. You'll need the Sizzix Pro machine to use it.  For the embellishments, I used Sizzix leaves die to die cut the green leaf. I also used my trusty decorative scissors to cut the edges of the orange scrap paper that was used as the background of the pink zebra. 



NOTE PAD

For the notepad base, I used the Sizzix crescent tag die. 
When creating party decors or supplies, be sure to stick to a particular color combo or theme or focal point. My focal pint was the zebra. 


The sticky note pad was store bought. Im glad they had animal shapes. 


BABY SHOE FAVOR BOX 

I used a custom-made die to cut out the shape of the shoe. 
After gluing the cuts together, I embellished the straps with letter beads from Bee Happy Crafts
and added a cute zebra with scalloped edges. I used Fiskars Scallop Puncher. 


           Hahaha! It was really fun playing with my toys, and my DIY party is on its way!


Materials Used
Sizzix Pro bag with handle

Sizzix Bigz super crescent tag

Die-namics Mason Jar Card Tutorial and Save-the-Date card


Hello! It's a rainy Tuesday here in Zamboanga City. I feel like staying bed all day or stay in my room and do some crafting. Either way, it sounds fun!

A few days ago, I received a happy mail from BEE HAPPY crafts. 

The goodie bag contained 
1 stack DCWV papers
1 Dienamics mason jar die
1 Inkadinkadoo stamp set
1 bag of lettering beads
1 set doilies
1 set tags
1 pack embellishments
1 set rub-ons

Now I want to share my playtime.... I tested the mason jar die with paper and yardstick, and it cut perfectly like butter. Im using Sizzix Vintage die cutting machine.


Next, I prepared my materials... 6x6 papers, twine, card base, buttons, paper flower
 and goodies from Bee Happy Crafts

I cut 2 pieces of papers into banners. Then, I put the jar together. I added jute twine on one of the jars.
Then I stamped for you and be happy sentiments from this Inkadinkadoo stamp set. What I love about this set is the free acrylic block that goes with the pack. It's an important tool!

For stamping: You'll need an inkpad. 


This is the final result after putting all together... 

SHABBY CHIC SAVE THE DATE CARD


Since its very easy to create, this card can be replicated. 
A 12x12 sized paper can be made into 4 cards. 

Now because you came here, I hope you'll be happy to know that I'm having a GIVEAWAY of three (3) card kits identical to my project. Please leave a comment on this post if you would like to get a chance. I'm offering this giveaway for Zamboanga City residents only since I can't shoulder the shipping cost.

Use sequins to a scrapbook layout plus DCWV stack-a-holic-challenge

Good day to all! What's the least scrapbook embellishment are you using? Hmmm... I say that I don't use sequins often. However, after using it on this layout, I swear, sequins are fun to use!  

When using sequins, I didn't just scatter them blindly all over the layout (LOL). The sequins were the last embellishments placed on the layout. I mentally (MY IMAGINATION) drew upward swirls on strategic areas of the layout and placed different colors of sequins on it. 


SCRAPBOOK TIP: See all those sequins? They add twinkle to scrapbook layouts. They are cheap and can be bought in a variety of colors and sizes.


The pinwheel embellishment was easy to to make, just add a brad! Scroll down for the template....


I can't thank DCWV enough for these stacks delivered to my doorstep last June for winning the May DCWV stack-a-holic challenge.




SKETCH USED: GO ahead and play with this sketch. You can turn it around if you want.


Hope you find my scrapbook tip useful. I'd be happy to hear your comments.  Thank you!



Handmade wedding cards ~ easy project


Hi there! Today I'm sharing handmade wedding cards! I created this for my mother. Since January this year, she's been to many weddings and kept on requesting for wedding cards to give away. She wanted a wedding card with some sort of an envelope to put in "folded gifts" for wishing wells (which is popular nowadays).

So here goes.... I folded 6"x8" sized cards and prepared the following supplies:
1. embossing folder
2. paper flowers
3. Tim Holtz bird cage die cut
4. Tattered lace bride and groom die cut
5. Sizzix Love die cut
6. Big shot pro machine
7. Ellison 5x5 envelope die
8. adhesives

Once I've prepared the supplies, it was easy for me to build three cards in 30 minutes!



I placed the envelope inside. The left side of the card can be used for writing notes to the newlyweds.



This is a very easy project. I can make a hundred of these for a wedding invitation (that's what I'm good at, MASS PRODUCTION. LOL!!).  Let me know if you find this idea helpful. Thank you very much!

IT'S PLAY TIME!
