Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & project #7 of my 6 x 6" paper week. Sadly this is the last in the series :-( I have really enjoyed it though & i hope you have to. I will do another 'themed' week very soon though so make sure you keep your eyes & ears peeled!

Today my project is a really cute & very easy double pocket envelope. This is so quick to make & would be great for swaps as you have to cute pockets to fill with goodies! I also made a sweet little belly band to keep it closed.


I love the colour i chose to use which is Highland Heather. It really is a beautiful colour & i think i will be using this a lot more. The cute little Butterfly on the front is from the Painted Glass Bundle. This was also stamped using Highland Heather Ink.

DIMENSIONS

DESIGNER PAPER MEASURES 6 X 6"

SCORE ONE SIDE @ 3/8" ON BOTH ENDS OF THE PAPER & THEN SCORE IN THE MIDDLE @ 3"

SCORE THE OTHER SIDE @ 1" & 3 1/2"

#6 6 x 6" Paper Week- CUTE ENVELOPE TAG FLIP



Hi Everyone,
Welcome back to my Blog & project number 6 of my 6 x 6" paper Week. This also means that we only have one more project left :-( How the week has flown by!! I really hope you have enjoyed the series as much as me.

Today i have a really cute envelope tag tag flip idea! The great thing is that you do not need a die to make the envelope. If you want to make a fancy edge on your envelope you will, or you could use a punch or even some fancy scissors! The idea is that you fill the little envelopes with lots of little goodies! Perfect for swaps.

DIMENSIONS

DSP MEASURES 4 1/2" X 5 1/2"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 1 1/8" & 3 1/2"

SCORE THE SHORT SIDE @ 1/2" ON EACH SIDE.

These are so simple to make and a great way to use up your 6 x 6" papers. You can make lots of these and punch a hole in the corner, add your goodies then slot on a ring!! Its that easy.

Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions on how i made this project. You can find the link at the end of this post.

I will be back tomorrow with project #7

#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

Love Ann xx
