Graduation Exploding Gift Card Holder

Hey Crafty Friends!

I am having a very busy graduation session this year! I have 3 nieces that are graduating! I’m such a proud Auntie. ๐Ÿฅฐ The first graduation we attended was at the University of Minnesota. Can I just tell you that it was raining so bad, I was actually ready to come back to Detroit!

We had a wonderful time watching her graduate. So it was worth it!

I found this great tutorial video to make a graduation exploding box gift card holder. It was really fun and easy to make. You do not need a cutting machine, but if you have a scoreboard it would be helpful. I also used an embossing folder I picked up at Joann’s. Here is the link to Mixed Up Craft video tutorial on the box.

Here is the project share video on my channel:

I was really happy with the way it came out.

Issa Link Party Vol. 2 – Hosted by Scrapdaworld 3×3 Boxed Notecards

Hey Crafty Friends,

I just realized I never posted about Issa Link Party Vol 1 ๐Ÿ™ƒ… if you are interested you can see the video response hereย on the YouTube channel.ย  I will write a post about it later in the week to try and catch up.ย ย 

Scrapdaworld is hosting a Issa Link Party every month on her blog and YT channel.ย  You can see the Vol 2 (February) challenge here.ย  I really like this idea for a few reasons:ย ย 

  1. It helps me get my “craft therapy” in each month
  2. She picks the project, so I don’t spend 3 hours just looking at paper lol ๐Ÿ™„
  3. She even provides a tutorial to make it ๐Ÿ˜
  4. You also get to check out/follow crafters new crafty friends

This 3×3 boxed notecard set was very easy to create and came together quickly. I only used 1 page of design paper and still had scraps left over. I also used a die to create the paper tassel. All the paper is from Michaels.

Here is the video response:

DIY St. Patrick’s Day Banner

Hey Crafty Friends!

Well, Valentine’s day is over and all the stores have Spring/Easter stuff out, but here in Michigan we currently have 50 mph winds and snow, so I’m feeling real “springy”. So, why not make some cute St. Patty’s Day crafts. I have been on a banner kick lately, so this is what I came up with.

I found these cute little guys in Cricut Design Space and made a quick banner.

Here are the details of the design:

  • Leprechaun is from the Simply Charmed cartridge which is included in the Cricut Access Subscription.
  • LUCKY is a Cricut Font called Base Camp it is NOT included in the Cricut Access Subscription.
  • The Banner shape is from the Bits and Pieces cartridge and is included in the Cricut Access Subscription.

I liked how he came out. Here is the project share video:

Valentine’s Day Embellishments for 2019 – Milkshakes

Hey Crafty Friends!

Here is my last project share for Valentine’s Day embellishments. I was inspired by a fellow IG paper crafter. Here name on IG is Kenziscraps, you can check her out here. She has the cutest embellishments.

Out of all the projects, these were the most time consuming. I created these from a die set. I love my die sets, but I just wish I could cut them out more than one at time. I used paper from Joann’s and Michaels. Again, another project you can change the look for any holiday or season.

Here is the quick project share video. Hopefully, you will get some “me time crafting” in to create some. ๐Ÿ˜

Valentine’s Day Embellishments for 2019 – Banner Clips

Hey Crafty Friends!

Another wonderful Valentine’s Day embellishment project inspired by a fellow YouTuber. This idea came from Crafting with Liller (I linked the video here). She has a bunch of great tutorials and project shares. I wish I had enough time to sit down and follow all her tutorials and make a rack of pretty stuff! She is has a ton of cute projects. I defiantly want to try my hand at a few of her recent project shares.

The thing I love most about these banners are how quick they are to make. Another plus is, I used all scraps! I used die cuts from a pack I bought from Michaels and I really got a lot of use out of it. The gold paper clips are from Staples. After I decided on the paper I was going to use, it only took about 15 mins to finish. I will be using them for happy mail or in my planner. Again, another project you can change the look for any holiday or season.
