DCWV June Stackaholic Layout SVG Cut File Set

DCWV June Stackaholic Challenge Layout

Happy Sunday crafty friends,
I hope you are enjoying your weekend and getting some fun crafting in! Today I wanted to share the layout I made for the DCWV monthly Stackaholic challenge. This is what I came up with.

I created this layout using some wonderful vintagey looking papers from the Dear Jane Stack. The cuts are from PaperCraftingWorld.com Layout 614 set. I started with a layer of Cream colored Bazzil cardstock. I inked the edges of all the layers with with my Chocolate ink from the Basics Ink Pad set fromClose To My Heart. I then used a piece of paper from the stack for the main background. I then used a different paper from the stack for the flowers and circle. The image with the bird and birdcage as well as the title were also from the same stack.

Here is a pic of the layout sketch we had to work with.

Here’s a closer look at the flowers. The blue patterned paper was from the Dear Jane Stack. I cut the flowers out using my Pazzles Inspiration cutter.  Once cut, I inked the edges with some Crystal Blue ink from the Whimsy Ink pad set. I then distressed the petals (see below), added them to the layout and added some Cinnamon Stickles to the centers.

Here’s another view of the flowers. I inked the edges of the vine with some Chocolate ink from the Basics Ink Pad set.

Here’s a closer look at the title. You can see that it comes pre-printed and has a nice glittered edges. I simply added some more Chocolate ink to distress the edges.

Here’s a closer look showing the edge with the lace. I used some foam tapeunderneath and then faux stitched around the edge with a sharpie fine tip marker.

stamped mat-490
For the mat in the background, I used a piece of kraft cardstock and then stamped it with one of the stamps from the Distressed backgrounds set. I used my  Dessert Sand ink Pad as it gave it a more tone on tone look and not a stark contrast.

Here is one last look at the layout. It is a photo of my Grandmother with my Uncle Dan and my mother (she was the toddler)…circa 1949.

DCWV Stackaholic Card and FREE SVG

DCWV Stackaholic Challenge and FREE SVG

Happy Friday crafty friends! 
Whoo Hoo, hope you’re all doing well and getting ready for a weekend of summer crafty fun!  Today I am sharing a quick and cute card I created for the monthly DCWV Stackaholic challenge. This week DCWV participated in a blog hop and on their first day they used the new Honey Chic Stack. I was inspired by all the crafty goodness, so I pulled out that stack and went to work. This is what I came up with.

smile dcwv june challenge-480

Here’s a look at my finished card. I followed the sketch provided and designed my own “circle overlay”. This card is really simple and easy. The background paper is from the Honey Chic DCWV Stack as is the pink striped paper. **ENABLER ALERT*** The stack is currently 9.99 at Joann’s online. Great time to take advantage and grab this stack.

This is the sketch we were to follow for the challenge.

smile-sideview-480
From this shot you can see the EK Success mini corner punches I used. Also the Blue background with the frame is a “card” panel that comes just like that in the paper stack. All I did was add the letters for Smile to it. I added a metal star paper clip I had in my stash for a little extra visual interest. This goes well with the Honeycutz challenge for using something old. It has been sitting here in my craft room for no kidding....five to six years!!! You can also see in this shot that the paper has some parts of it that are pre-glittered. I love that about many of the DCWV stacks. Their papers will have some “strategically placed” glitter throughout the sheet. This makes for a very nice texture contrast in your projects and it isn’t “over-done”.

bow sideview-480
Here’s another view. You can see the nice Black Grosgrain ribbon I used here. Love May Arts Ribbon and seeing all the wonderful inspiration from the hop got my creative juices flowing. Oh, I almost forgot. The Smile letters are actually from a Quickutz Alphabet die set I have….Paige upper and lower case 2x2 dies. You use them with the Quickutz squeeze tool.

I used to enter a lot of challenge when I first started blogging, so I decided for the summer, I will float around and find some fun challenges to enter.

Bunches of Love, Love Your Smile and Classic Page Kits

New Page Kits
Happy Monday crafty friends,
I am back in the saddle. It has been a crazy last month with so many things going on. But now that most of that is behind me, I am back to crafting and sharing! I hope those of you that read along with me for the counting of the Omer were able to enjoy a wonderful Shavuot – Pentecost. What an amazing time we live in. To see all that is happening and know that God has called us to stand for Him during this time….May you be truly blessed!
So today I wanted to share three layouts I created recently for page-kits.com.
