Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & project #2 of my 6 x 6" paper week!!
Today i have a very quick, easy &  effective project for you. I have been making and using these adorable little envelopes for my Pocket Letter swaps. They work a treat! you have know bits falling out & flying all over the place. You can make them with or without a closure, it just depends if you want to use them for pocket letters or something else.

DIMENSIONS

DESIGNER PAPER MEASURES 5 1/2" X 5"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 2 1/2" & 5

SCORE THE SHORT SIDE @ 1" & 4 1/2"

If you want to make a closure for your envelope you will need a 1/8" punch and also a 1/2" circle punch. Obviously you will also need 2 brads and some twine.

Please check out my YouTube video which you can find at the end of this post.

I hope you like today's project and pop by tomorrow for project #3!!

#1 6 x 6" Paper WEEK! ONE SHEET WONDER



Hi Everyone,

Thank you for stopping by my Blog today.
I mentioned on my Facebook page the other week about doing a 6 x 6" paper week on my YouTube channel. The reason being is i know lots of people run out of ideas on what they can use them for. So today i have project #1 of 7. The videos will run everyday for the next week! I hope you enjoy them and i hope it gives you some inspiration.

I am kicking the series off with a one sheet wonder. I made 6 cards out of one sheet of 6 x 6" designer paper. The cards in the above picture are made with Lemon lime twist, Whisper white & Lovely Lipstick. I used 3 stamp sets which were Accented Blooms, Pop of petals & Darling label punch box set.

I really enjoyed making these cards and although some of them are quite simple, they are very pretty. I also made 6 out of Blackberry Bliss designer paper. They are pictured below. I followed the same layout as the Lemon lime twist cards.




All of my card bases were 4 x 4". I cut the card stock to 4 x 8" and scored in the middle at 4". The whisper white front layer was cut to 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and also the same for the inside of the cards. When you have cut your designer paper you will end up with 9 separate pieces.

Please check out my YouTube video where i show you how to cut the designer paper. You can find the link at the end of this post.

I will be back tomorrow with project number 2!

Love
Ann xx

Beautiful Rosette Pencils


Hi Everyone,

Thank you for visiting my Blog today.
I am so in love with today's project! I love the way it turned out & i hope you do to. This beautiful project was inspired by a very recent swap i did with Bernadette Taylor. (you can see the swap on my Youtube channel & also the link to her channel). Bernadette made me a beautiful rosette which was made with a pencil.


I new straight away that i wanted to make something very similar & that i wanted to use the beautiful new paper pad i got called Enchanted Meadow. I am really pleased with them and they would be great to package up and sell at craft fairs.


You don't have to use a pencil for your Rosette, you could use a straw or maybe even a small wooden dowel. These would make great gifts especially for little girls, they would love them.

Please check out my YouTube video to see how i made them. I have put the link at the end of this post.

Until next time.... Bye for now

EASY & Gorgeous Shabby Chic Flowers!



Hi Everyone,

Thank you for popping by my blog today! I have a very easy flower tutorial for you and you only need a few supplies to make them. I also recommend leaving them to dry overnight as you don't want to risk tearing them. In the picture above i used 2 Ink colours. Lovely Lipstick & Pool Party. I love the way they turned out & i will be definitely making a whole load more!!


They look so pretty & sparkly. To get the sparkle i used my homemade glimmer spray (of course!) i am addicted to using that stuff, i love it. I will link the tutorial below for the spray in case you have not seen it before.
Homemade Glimmer Spray Tutorial

To make these flowers you will need either a flower punch or some flower dies. If you have the Stampin Up Pansy punch that will do, if not use something similar. I used some flower dies that i bought online.
I cut them out from whisper white card stock. Using some Ink & a finger dauber, i inked the middles of the flowers. I used a brad to attach about 5 flowers together. Using some water in a spray bottle i soaked the flowers and then pulled up the petals to shape. Leave to dry overnight then remove the brad and glue together.
Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions.

I hope you will give them a try, they are so easy but give beautiful results.

Thank you

Love Ann xx
