Sweet Tag

Good Morning,

Today I am sharing a small tag that I created using Mintay Paradise paper. The paper is gorgeous. I cut out a couple of images from the paper and popped the up with pop up tape. This gives the tag some extra dimension. For the center I used some beautiful flowers and added the octopus.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dreams

Welcome everyone 

Today I would like to share my latest make, it’s a tag made from Pion Design papers.
Simple, elegant with clean lines but with deep pink foamiran flower as focal point. 
I created the tag by adding paper layers with addition
of lace across it.    



I added some sisal under the flower, few die cut leaves and chipboard leaves which has been heat embossed to give it more subtle look.


I finished of the project by adding a title- dreams.

Hope you will like it.

All the best

Maja Design Denim & Girls Card

Hello, welcome to the Crafteezee blog. 
Today I'm sharing a card I've made using the cute papers from Maja Design 
Denim & Girls.




The card has 3 layers of patterned papers. 
I stitched a decorative frame on two of the paper pieces.

 I made matching foamiran flowers in pink and blue, added a fantasy chipboard and
 other flowers as well.
I colored the chipboard with pink ink and soften it with white gesso.




The white swirls are cut out of white foamiran using a Lady E die cut.




The little sentiment is from a 13 arts paper pad - Rose fields.
Furthermore I added a little bow made from tulle trim.







Thanks so much for visiting the Crafteezee blog.

Hugs, Henriƫtte.

Baby pink flowers

Hello dear friends!

Elena is here!

I'm coming today with a new portion of easy made flowers.
To make them you do not need to use even an iron.

Let me show you, my little pink babies.



As you can see to create them I've cut out two layers of foamiran mini blossoms using Lady E tiny flowers cutting die set. 


 You can fold each petal with your fingers to gain that shape if you want but it is not necessary. 


Stuck the layers overlapping and glued a single mini pearl in the centre. 


Your flowers are ready. You can use them to decorate some cute baby projects :-)


Thank you for visiting!
Have a wonderful crafty week.
Hugs,
Elena xxx

Purse Album with Tutorial

Hello!

Today I am posting a purse album along with the tutorial.  It makes for a fantastic gift and is really easy to make!  This project can be used as a recipe holder or as a special photo album.  There are 16 pockets with 16 cards.  Photos or recipes can be placed on both sides of the cards.


  

Paper needed:
Purse Frame:   3 pieces of Pion Design Palette cardstock

                        2 1/2 pieces of Pion Design paper

Purse Spine:    1 piece Pion Design Palette cardstock
Purse pockets: 5 1/2 pieces of Pion Design Palette cardstock

                        3 pieces of Pion Design paper
Purse cards:     4 pieces of Pion Design Palette cardstock

Total Paper needed:  13 1/2 pieces of Pion Design Palette cardstock
                                    5 1/2 pieces of Pion Design decorative paper
**TIP**:  Although optional, I always apply chipboard to the inside of each piece of the purse frame for better support.  The chipboard is applied after the purse frame is constructed, but before adding the decorative paper.  The decorative paper is applied over the chipboard to hide the chipboard.  This is described at Step 11 in the instructions below.
Purse Frame:
Step 1:

Cut 3 pieces of Pion Design Palette cardstock measuring:
7" x 10 1/2" (Piece A)
7" x 12"        (Piece B)
7" x 6           (Piece C)


Step 2:
Take Piece A  (7" x 10 1/2") and score down the shorter 7" side at 1/2", 4 1/2", and 9 1/2", then score down the longer 10 1/2" side at 1/2" from each edge.



Step 3:
Cut out all 4 corner scored boxes and then cut angled tabs at all edges as shown:


Step 4:

Adhere the 1/2" sides to what will be the inside of the purse.   This reinforces the purse making it more stable.
 

Step 5:

Take Piece B (7" x 12") and score down the shorter 7" side at 6" and 11", then score down the longer 12" side at 1/2" from each edge.


Step 6:
Cut out all 4 corner scored boxes and then cut angled tabs at all edges as shown:


Step 7:
Adhere the 1" tab of Piece A to the edge closest to the 6" score line of Piece B as shown before adhering the 1/2" sides of Piece B to what will be the inside of the purse.


Step 8:
Adhere the 1/2" sides to what will be the inside of the purse.


Step 9:
Take Piece C (7" x 6") and score at 1/2" on each side down the shorter 6" side.  Cut edges at angles. OPTIONAL:  Add die cut for bottom edge if desired.


Step 10:

Adhere the 1" tab of Piece B to Piece C as shown before adhering the 1/2" sides of Piece C to what will be the inside of the purse.


 Step 11:

Adhere the 1/2" sides to what will be the inside of the purse.
**OPTIONAL** At this point, a  smaller piece of chipboard can be added to the inside of each section of the purse frame as an option to give better stability to the pieces.  These chipboard pieces should be added before applying the decorative paper.  The decorative paper will hide the chipboard pieces.  I generally cut each chipboard piece 1/4" shorter than the actual dimensions.  For example, a 4 1/2" x 6" purse section would require a piece of chipboard cut to 4 1/4" x 5 3/4".



**OPTIONAL** Add decorative die cut side trim at this point if desired.

  

Step 12:
Purse Handle:
Although not shown, the purse handle needs to be added before the decorative paper is added to hide the attached ends.

Cut cardstock to 1 1/4" x 12" and score at 1/2" on each end.  
Cut 2 pieces of decorative paper to  1" x 11" and center  and adhere within the scored ends of the cardstock piece on both sides. 
Adhere the 1/2" ends to the outside edges of the top of the purse.

Step 13
 
Add Pion Design papers to each side of the purse:

Piece A (purse front lower flap):  cut 2 pieces of Pion Design paper measuring 5 3/4" x 3 3/4".  Adhere to both sides of this piece.

Piece A (floor of purse):  cut 1 piece of Pion Design paper measuring 5 3/4" x 4 3/4" and adhere to the outside of this piece (floor of purse).  Leave the inside of the purse without decorative paper as we will be placing the spine here later.
Piece B (back side of purse):  cut 2 pieces of Pion Design paper measuring 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" and adhere to both sides of this piece.
Piece B (top of purse):  cut 2 pieces of Pion Design paper measuring 5 3/4" x 4 3/4" and adhere to both sides of this piece.
Piece C (purse front top flap): cut 2 pieces of Pion Design paper measuring 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" or to whatever height is necessary if you used a die cut at the bottom of the flap.

 

Step 14:
Add velcro to the outside of Piece A and and the insdie of Piece C as shown to easily allow opening and closure of the purse.  NOTE:  if using magnets instead of velcro, place magnets BEFORE adding Pion Design paper to hide the magnets.

Purse Spine:
Create a spine to attach to the floor of the purse.  This will enable us to attach pockets for the cards.
Step 1:

Cut 2 pieces of Pion Design Palette cardstock to 5 5/8 " x 10 1/4" and then score each of these pieces along the short side in this repeating pattern to the end of the piece:  1/4", 1/2", 1/2".  Fold and adhere the spine so that the 1/2" pieces are adhered together with 1/4" between each adhered piece as shown:



Step 2:
Attach these 2 spine pieces together giving 16 total individual spine attachments.  This combined piece will now measure 5 5/8" x 5".
  

Purse Pockets:
Create pockets to adhere to each spine attachment.

Step 1:
Cut 16 pieces of cardstock measuring 4" x 12".

Step 2:
Score down the shorter 4" side at 5 3/4", and 11 1/2" and then score down the longer 12" side at 1/2" on one side only and then cut angled tabs at score lines and ends as shown.


Step 3:
Fold and adhere the 1/2" edges to what will be the inside of the pocket.  This reinforced edge will be the top of the pocket and will strengthen the pocket.

Step 4:
Fold the score lines and adhere the 1/2" side tab to the inside of the pocket.

Step 5:
Add Pion Design papers to the front side of the pocket
Cut 16 pieces of Pion Design paper measuring 3 1/4" x 5 1/2" and adhere these pieces to the front side of each pocket.

Step 6:
Apply glue or ScoreTape to both sides of each of the 16 spine attachments.  Slide the end of the pockets (without the reinforced edge) over the spine attachment and adhere firmly.

Step 7:
Adhere the spine to the inside base of the purse frame.

Purse Cards:

Create 16 tabbed cards to insert into each pocket.


Step 1:
Cut 16 cardstock pieces measuring 5" x 5".   Place tab of choice on top edge and insert in pocket. Make sure the tab is not more than 1/2" in height over the top of the card. 


Decorate with beautiful embellishments from the Crafteezee shop!


Have a great Monday!
