Love is the flower

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to show you some of the fantastic Cheery Lynn Designs Embossing Plates.  I have made a rather clean and simple card that I hope helps to show you just how lovely they are.  If you have not tried them before you really should!  Not only are they more durable than the plastic embossing folders, they are more flexible and Cheery Lynn Designs has some very unique designs that will provide another level of texture to your project.

Flower Cart

Hi Everyone,

The last time I was away on vacation I spied a gorgeous little cart where locals were selling fresh flowers on the side of the road.  I was really taken with how lovely it was and so I thought that this might make for some lovely inspiration for this week’s theme “Lots of Layers”.

Flower-Cart

The Daisy Lace Frame made the perfect roof for my miniature “cart on wheels” which I lined with some green vellum paper that I have been holding on to forever just waiting for the perfect project to use it.  This was it!

I am just in love with the tiny vases and can see that I will definitely be using these a lot!  I would love to hear your ideas on how you would use these little beauties.  For this project I wanted them to have some dimension but they are just as gorgeous when you use them as a single die cut : )

Here is a closer look

Scor-Pal Basket

Hello again everyone,

Joann with you again to show you how to make a fun little basket.

I got the idea from a little paper game I use to play with as a child.  It is called Paper Fortune Teller.   I found one in an old box of stuff and when I looked at it upside down, it was perfect for a basket.

Full-Basket

and here it is with another angle

Full-Basket1

To make this fun little box follow these simple steps:

Cut a piece of cardstock 8 ½ inches x 8 ½ inches

Score at 2 1/8, 4 ¼ and 6 ½

Step-1

Flip and score the other side the same 2 1/8, 4 ¼ and 6 ½

Place your Scor-Envi on your Scor-Pal and score at the 9 mark on all 4 sides

Step-2

To fold the basket do the following:

  1.  Turn the cardstock so it looks like a Diamond
  2. Fold the 4 points into the middle so you are left with a square
  3. Flip the card stock over and fold the 4 points onto the middle again
  4. Fold the card stock in half and then fold in half again on the other side
  5. To make the basket simply place the folder card stock so that the top looks like a W and push in on the 4 corners.
  6. Glue the basket to a doily
  7. To make the handle I used a strip of paper 1 ½ x 10 ½ and punched the edge with a Martha Steward edge punch

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope you can come back and visit again soon!
