Love Tag

 Hello my crafty friends,

I love making cards and that is what I do most of the time but it is also nice to be able to use my dies for something else - like mixed media.  Today I have a mixed media tag to share.  I used a tag from my stash and then used a few dies from my Karen Burniston collection.

I used one of Karen's pattern plates to create the textured background.  I kept adding until I was happy with the results and then added ribbon and a Tim Holtz charm to finish it off.
This tag can easily be added to the front of a card or gift bag.

Friends Frame

 Hi friends,

It's Sandy Diller here with a fun little project that will create a memory that you can enjoy for a long time to come.   I used the Friends Desktop Frame to make my memory.

Simply add the photo of choice.

I began by painting the word "Friends" with acrylic paint.

After choosing the paper and design I liked I added the paper to the frame and base using double sided adhesive.  

I did a little fussy cutting on the birds so I could add them to the frame.

Laugh of the Day

Hello friends,

I had lots of fun making a card today.  I recently got some new stamps from Riley & Company that I couldn't wait to use.  I combined them with dies from Karen Burniston to make this silly card.   I'll send it to a friend just to make them smile.

                                           So if a cow doesn't produce milk, is it a Milk Dud?

                                                                   or an Udder Failure?

 Hello Friends,

I'm here today with a fun little album I made for a child returning to school after summer break.  I used the Mini Mixable Little Bits album for this one.  It is small enough to fit in a backpack yet has room for several photos.  I left the top of each frame open so a photo can slide in easily.

I began this project by covering the back page with paper and painting the center page pink.
Then some edges were added to the acrylic pages.        


I added some cute phrases and banners that go along with photos.

I did a little stamping to add color, the photo frames on the right are actual slide frames that have been covered with washi tape.

Rings were added to the holes to hold it together.

I like to add colorful ribbon to the rings just for fun.

Birthday Gnome

It's Sandy Diller here - I have a tutorial on the Clear Scraps Blog today with an easy card for somebody special.  I used the Mini Shaker Gnome to create this card. 

                                                        This is an easel card so it is easy to display.

After assembling the cute little gnome and filling it with shaker elements I picked out some fun paper.

Congratulate Yourselfie

Hi friends,

It's Designer Challenge Day and this month it is all about labels.  I used three labels from the Katherine Label die set and then went a little silly with my card.  I just love gnomes so I used several.

This is a mini slimline which measures 6" X 3.5".  Each of the three blue panels measures 5.75" X 3.25".  You can see all the products I used below.  Simply click on the photo for more information.

Be sure to check out all the cards this month, we are welcoming 4 new Design Team members and I'm sure you will be delighted with their cards.  Don't forget to check out all the makes on the Karen Burniston Pop Up Peeps on FB.
