Momenta and Scor-Pal Blog Hop!

Today it is my turn to share my project that was featured on the Scor-pal blog as part of this week's Scor-pal and Momenta blog week. Of course, if you missed this project or any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you'll want to hop on over there and see what's been going on this week. Be sure to leave comments on each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes. Entry deadline in 8am Monday, July 2, so there's still time.

First off I have a lovely treat basket.  I have used the Cuddle and Coo collection from Momenta.

Start with a 12x12 piece of cardstock and score at 4” and 8”, turn the paper 90 degrees and score again at 4” and 8”.  Fold all scored lines.  Score and fold each corner diagonally and bring them up to the middle.  Decorate each square with 3 ¾” squares and attach a ribbon (or as I did, beads) to the middle and presto!  A cute treat basket!  I made the flowers with a Stampin Up! punch,  I layered several layers and attached them together with a brad.

Next is my Trinket Chest.  I used Magnolia Stamps, colored with Distress Inks  to decorate the top.  Here are the instructions:

The drawer are 3”x3”.  Start with a piece of paper 6”x6” and score each side at 1 ½”.  Attach a drawer liner, 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”  in the middle.


To create the drawer pulls, I start with a brad, eyelet and flower decoration.  Attached flower to brad with hot glue, then thread the eyelet through the post of the brad, as shown.  Punch a hole through the drawer front and attach brad, the eyelet will provide just enough space to lift it off of the paper. 

Repeat to create 8 drawers.

Next wrap a 3” x 10” piece of cardstock around the drawer, there will be overlap, this is where you will attach the slip cover together with Scor-Tape.

Cut a 3” x 3” of chipboard and attach to the top of one of the drawers, this will stabilize everything really good.  Stack another drawer on top. 

Adhere all of the drawer sets together to create your chest.  Attach covered 3”x 3”, chipboard to the sides.  The top and bottom are covered 7”x7” pieces of chipboard.

Here is close up of the images

Images used:  Tilda as Butterfly and Stone Pathway

Images used: Bee Tilda, Ladybug, Summer Background, Dock and Mushrooms.

Decorate as you please.

The Gift of Coffee

Hi everyone!  I am here today with a great gift idea.  I made a cute little holder for Kuerig coffee K-cups.

I used Graphic 45 designer paper and black cardstock.  The sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.

I made this project while on a scrapbook weekend with my bff.  I can't remember the dimensions, so I will have to get back with you on those!

The gorgeous flower in the middle is from Micheals and the rest is from Wild Orchid.

Thanks for stopping by!  I will have another K-cup holder tomorrow!

Blowing Bubbles

Hi everyone!  I'm back with another card.  Still trying to get my groove.  I just love soft greens and blues together, they make such a soft and serene card.

I used Tilda Blowing Bubbles and Small Snail in my card today.  I layered the same Memory Box Die in two different colors for the grounding of my card.  The die was used for my image is from Spellbinders.  I used some seam binding from Stampin Up! to accent the blue in her wings.  I really like this stamp, it is one of my favorites.  I colored Tilda with Distress Inks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone!  I has been FOREVER since I posted anything!  I am trying to get back on the saddle after my basement flooded.  My craft room was totally under water and I lost a lot of stuff but I am slowly getting back into action!  I moved my craft room to other side of the basement and I really like it a lot better where it is.  Once I have the finishing touches done I will post some pictures.

Now, onto my card.  I am posting this card "just because" no challenges or contest.  I just love this Magnolia stamp, I love the way that the flowers seem to overtake Tilda.  I painted her with Distress Inks.  The designer paper is oh so gorgeous, it is from My Minds Eye. I added little touches of lace and flowers to complete the look.

I hope you enjoyed today's post.  I was great seeing you again!
