#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

Exploding Box Mini Album!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! I am so happy it will be Bank Holiday Weekend soon! We are supposed to be getting some gorgeous Weather to! Lets hope so. I hope you have a great Weekend whatever you do :-)

I am really excited about today's project, i think its so cool! Basically, from the outside it just looks like an ordinary box, however when you open it up, its anything but ordinary! Its a mini album! How cool???

I did see a project like this on another site but i can not seem to find it now. I saw the idea but used my own measurements etc. I really love this project and i loved making it to. Please do not think for one minute that this project is hard! Believe me when i say its very simple, it really is. Its not the quickest thing to make but its worth it!



My box was made with Berry burst 12 x 12" card, Whisper white card and the share what you love DSP. I also used Dragonfly dreams thinlits and celebrate you thinlits which will be carrying over to the new annual catalogue!

Gorgeous Flip Flap/Shutter card Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog and thank you for stopping by!!
I am really pleased with Today's project and i think you will be to! I am calling this a Flip Flap/Shutter card. It reminds me of those shutter blinds that people have in there window. Its a really cool design.

I came across this type of card on another YouTube channel called JK arts. I did make some changes to the measurements and also simplified the instructions a little as i found them a little tricky to follow. Please don't be put off thinking it looks really hard and complicated...its really not!!


I think this card would be great for Valentines Day but you could also change the Hearts for Cakes or Balloons and turn it into a Birthday card. It would also be great as a Mothers Day card.



Another thing i like about this card is that it folds totally flat. It also stands up perfectly to. A really great card for lots of different occasions.

Beautiful Triple Enforced Keep Sake Box

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to my Blog. Today i have a really sturdy & super strong box for you. I am really quite pleased with this box & i know you will love it to!!
It is not hard to make and i think it looks very professional to. As the title says it is triple enforced!! Once you make it you will see for yourself how strong it is.


As you can see in the picture above i used the Delicate lace edgelit dies to make the closure of the box look more interesting and quite ornate. I added a cute padlock charm to finish it off.


As you can see the inside is also very neat and professional looking. I even added a cute faux mirror to the inside of the lid.
