Sewing-Inspired Friendship Cards

Nina here today with two sewing-inspired cards. Both cards use stamps from the The Craft's Meow's Sew Happy set, which coordinates with Spellbinders' Sewing Elements dies. The first one uses Want2Scrap's Beautiful Bling Borders-Fancy Waves! on the side. 
The bling strip is just the perfect accent, along with some lace and buttons.
This card uses Sleek Strips Pearls-White as accent on the dress form's waist. The button card is from The Craft's Meow's Sew Lovely stamp set and die cut with Spellbinders Labels 8.
You can see the pearl strip here closer. The papers are Crate Paper.
I hope you all have a great day!

Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday, sweet girl! I'm happy to be sharing today's layout featuring my sweet niece, Sophie, celebrating her first birthday.
This layout features these lovely Want2Scrap products:
I inked the Nestaboard Lacey Oval with brown Tsukineko ink to frame some diecut embellishments.

I love how delicate the Sleek Strip Pearls accent this layout.  I also inked the Birthday chipboard sentiment with brown Tsukineko ink.  The lovely script font makes these chipboard words some of my very favorite products.  Bling swirls add the perfect amount of pazazz to this birthday layout.
What are you celebrating?  Be sure to record your favorite memories with Want2Scrap products.

Hello, How Are You?

Nina here on the blog with a simple friendship card using Nestabling Labels Twenty Five Silver Rhinestone and my favorite Ribbon Rose 1".

I first cut a panel from the Basic Grey paper and adhered that to a red cardstock to show a bit on the sides. I then die cut the center with Spellbinders Labels 25.  I centered the panel on the card front without adhering it and stamped the sentiment (from The Craft's Meow's Stitched Sentiments stamp set)  in the center hole.


I popped the card panel using GlueArts U-Cut-It® 4x4 and carefully placed the Nestabling Labels Twenty Five Silver Rhinestone around the frame. Finally, I adhered the Ribbon Rose 1" along the bottom.


With these beautiful embellishments, creating beautiful cards does not take a lot of effort.

I combined the paper collection, "Traditions", by Carta Bella with these lovely Want2Scrap products:
I love our chipboard albums SO much, I even incorporate them into my layouts.  This big chipboard tag is part of our Tag Album and perfect to anchor my photo.

Guest Designer - Mai Larsen

We would like to introduce our talented Guest Designer, Mai Larsen.

Mai Larsen w/Creando Con Detalles

Hi, my name is Mai Larsen and I am the creator/founder of a Latina group called Creando Con Detalles. I am happily married with four children, currently living in Rock Springs, Wyoming. I’m the Program Manager/Editor for a Spanish Newspaper in our local community called La Roca.
I have always been passionate about crafting, but I have never had so much fun as I have in the past several years. Shortly after my mom passed away in 2008, I was invited to a cardmaking class, and it was love at first sight. I was completely hooked with the idea of using my current crafting skills with my new found hobby of paper crafting.

In 2011, I created a Latina craft group on facebook called Creando Con Detalles. I created the group because I wanted to share my techniques with other ladies. I’m not just a papercrafter, I am a crafter at heart that loves to think outside the box and create projects that will inspire others to do the same.

I share my favorite products with my Latina followers, and introduce them to things that they may not be familiar with. Many of my Latina followers follow my online classes my via ustream channel at My group has ladies from all over Latin America such as: Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, and even Spain. I try to teach them something new and amazing each time.

I am a shabby chic and vintage fanatic that loves to use Want2Scrap™ bling, paper flowers, and digital images in just about all my craft projects. I like to take something old and turning it into something new and amazing. To see more of my projects visit my blog.

Join us in giving Mai a warm welcome. Mai will share several projects with us throughout the month.

Update: The paper Mai used - Bo Bunny Gabriella Collection for the notebook and Core'dination a matching color for the cards. For the baby card I used Graphic 45 Little Darling Collection.

Create a Valentine They Will L♥ve to Display Year Round!

Hi everyone!
True :D  here today to share another simple but elegant project with you. 
How many times have you poured your heart into a Valentine, only to see it put away in  a drawer or *gasp* thrown in the garbage? Why not make them something this year that they will love to display? This sweet little heart can be hung on a wall, doorknob, or even on a rear view mirror in a car. :)

(Click on photos for a closer peek)

It was quick and easy to make using Spellbinder dies and Want2Scrap bling.

The designer cardstocks are some that I illustrated for Inky Antics. I have to say that it is super fun working with your own creations! :)

I stamped a sentiment on the back from my Inky Antic's #1115MC "Swirly Bird" clear stamp set. There is still plenty of room for a hand-written message as well.

A Wordless Book

I love taking photos of my kids and their changing expressions.  This book evoked many of those expressions in my son, and I knew that they would make a great layout.

I left one space in my grid open, and used a few carefully chosen items to create a title space, as well as some texture for my page.

Canvas Project: Take the Time 2 Create

It's a New Year's Resolution for a lot of us.
Make time to create.
I need the reminder.

You too, can make a SIMPLE canvas.

I created this SUPER simple canvas.
by using a piece of balsa wood.

I decoupaged some napkins onto the board.
 I added a coat of paint, and created a whitewash finish by
dry brushing some Gesso.

I sanded and inked around the edges with 
I added some Tissue Tape,
a transparency,
a beautiful chevron border,
some words and hardware...
a few buttons,
some bulk LOOSE bling, and 
and the title...

The Fancy chipboard title Create was painted with Gesso and 
coated with Medium and then
dusted with Fairy Dust from our preferred partner, Clearsnap.


Take the time 2 Create...

Scrapbook LOVE, girly style!

I can't help it!  I HAVE a girl, I AM a girl, and I LOVE bling...

It's a BEAUTIFUL problem...

Especially, when you combine products from Want2Scrap® and My Little Shoebox!

Don't you just LOVE "daughter", all 3-D and accented with a touch of color and sparkle!  Shhhh!  It's really the word "Goddaughter!" {I'm saving "God" for ANOTHER project!} Although Want2Scrap® chipboard products are heavy duty, and AMAZING!, they snip easily for customizing!

And SPEAKING of the wonders of Want2Scrap® - Don't EVER underestimate us!  Even the PACKAGING is useful!  I save my leftovers as a palette for gluing and embellishing...   Glittered and glued embellishments DON'T stick to the packaging, so they make an excellent work surface!

Just a hint of easy to apply color with some Clearsnap, pops a custom hue, accented with some all-purpose Rock Candy Distress Stickles from Tim Holtz and Ranger...  Mmmmm, hmmm, the PERFECT recipe for fun and fat free EYE candy!  Yumm-O!  {I LOVE our sport!}

Oh, and I love my lil' girl, too!  That's why it's SUCH a blast to scrapbook her wee little face and life's adventures, using products, and ESPECIALLY bling, from Want2Scrap®.  I sure hope I've inspired YOU to bling up some scrappy fun in YOUR day! 

Thanks for letting me gush!  Uh, I mean, INSPIRE you!  Have a delightful day!

"Tis So Sweet

Nina here today with another card. I just love the color combo of this one: pink, red and Kraft. I first cut a panel of patterned paper from Authentique's Lovely Collection and adhered it on a pink card stock. I die cut Spellbinders Window #2 die on kraft and popped it up using GlueArts U-Cut-It® 4x4.   

I decorated the window with Want2Scrap's Bling Hearts - Pink and Red Rhinestones on the top and Sleek Strips Pearls-White along the bottom.
The sentiment is from The Craft's Meow's Beautiful Hymns set. The bird is from Happy as a Lark set, also by TCM. A little bit of twine above the sentiment and the card is done.
Doesn't this card scream spring? I can't wait! :)
