Spring Pocket Scrapbooking Page

Thanks for stopping by the CutCardStock blog today! Amber here, and I am happy to share a quick and easy pocket scrapbooking page. Now that the weather is shaping up, I have less time to stay inside and craft, so I love these quick and easy pages.

All it takes is some cardstock and an assortment of coordinating embellishments. These came from my stash and worked really well with Stardream Metallic Rose Quartz and Aquamarine, and Environment Raw Grocer Kraft cardstocks.

I trimmed the cardstock into inserts that fit the dimensions of my pocket page protector and then had fun making them my own. I used some pattern paper, enamel dots, washi tape and some stamps. I love the neutral, yet feminine look!

I tucked the inserts neatly into place and now I'm ready to add photos. This would make a great Mother's Day layout, or a lovely page to honor a special woman in your life.

Enjoy! And remember to record those precious memories, and of course get out there and create some more!

Friends Forever Hybrid Digital Envelope Album for Spring

With Spring in the air, I thought a little sunny project was just in order.

This hybrid album is super easy to create & put together.
1.) Download the file & un-zip the attachments.
2.) Print
3.) Cut & tape envelopes.
4.) Punch holes & add "o" ring.
5.) Embellish with stickers and ribbon.
6.) Add love notes & pictures to pockets.

 Here are all the individual  printable envelope images. There is a total of 12 files all together.

I had fun embellishing this mini envelope set. 
I choose the white doily below but there are 
a total  of six doilies to choose from.

& the Couger Super Smooth White 80lb Cardstock and it printed beautifully!
I also used the 100lb and it did not work so well but itwas too heavy to fold and the edges cracked.

For the happy couple

Hello CutCardStock friends!! Giovana here today sharing a super cute Congrats Wedding card. Summer is quickly approaching and wedding season will start before you know it and nothing better that send a handmade card, you can easily use the wedding colors to make it more personal.

Here I have a step-by-step on how I make this super cute card.

I started with a piece of Curious Metallic Cryogen White Cardstock for my card base, dimensions are 7" x 10" and folded at 5". You will also need a piece of Curious Metallic Shadow Cardstock 4" x 6" and another piece of Cryogen White 3.75" x 5.75"

I stamped the doily on the piece of Cryogen White Cardstock in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink.

After finishing stamping this piece, set aside to let the ink dry.

Stamp the sentiment in yellow ink.

Then I stamped pretty flowers using the inks in the picture. I stamped 4, but I used only 3.

Finally, adhere all the pieces to your card base. I added a triple bow  and pearls in the centers of doilies.

I also decorated a Natural Cougar envelope.

Hope you like it.
Have a fantastic day!

3D Layered Flower Card

Hello again, friends!  It's Mynn here again with another creation using beautiful papers from the CutCardStock online store!  Today I have a floral card to share with you.  Come and see...

To create the flower, I started with two large punched flowers.  These flowers are made out of Red Lacquer Curious Metallic paper.  I used a rounded metal pen end to shape the top red flower.  All you have to so is rub it around the edges of the flower in a circular motion, and it starts to curl.

I then punched a smaller center flower out of Super Gold Curious Metallic paper, shaped it with the same technique, and layered the flowers onto each other.  They were adhered using 3D Double Sided Foam Tab Adhesive.  Lastly, a pearl was added to the center.

Next, I die cut out some leaves from some Botanic Curious Metallic paper.  I broke one apart before I added them behind the flower on the card base.

The focal panel for the card was made using Red Lacquer Curious Metallic paper and Classic Crest Solar White card.  I paper pierced around the panel to add some texture.

The focal panel was added to a card base made from more Classic Crest Solar White card.

The last item for the card was the sentiment.  It was stamped onto Classic Crest Solar White card, punched out, and layered onto more Red Lacquer Curious Metallic paper.

I very much love the beautiful shine from the Curious Metallics papers.  They really lend an elegant air to your paper crafted cards!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear in the comments below!

Thanks for stopping by, all!  I'll be back next month with more tutorials on using more beautiful products from the CutCardStock online store.  Until then, HUGS and happy paper crafting!

Glam up that envelope

Hey everyone!  Nicole here on the blog today.  Every once in awhile there is that special someone in your life that requires not just any card, but a very special birthday card.  I have such a person who is celebrating a birthday in a couple of weeks - my grams.  She is turning the big 80!  I really wanted her birthday card to be special this year, but what better way to present that card then with a special envelope as well.

I started with a brown bag envelope in kraft.  I lightly attached a few die-cuts, cut with my Silhouette, over the top of the envelope with a little adhesive.  I picked just a few spots since the die-cut will be removed.

Using some gold spray paint I sprayed a good layer over the whole envelope front.  

Leave to dry for about 20 minutes and then remove the die-cuts carefully from the envelope.  The next step is adding a bit of color.  I chose some watercolor pencils and traced around the flowers and leaves.  

Once you've added the color where you want wet a paintbrush and go over the colors spreading the color out.  I loved this part it reminded me of those "just add water" coloring books I had when I was little.  :)

Here is my finished envelope:  

I also used the same technique on my card and then added embellishments over the top. 

I'm excited to give this to my grams in a few week.  Hope you try this very simple way to give your envelope a little extra attention.   Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  
Happy Crafting, Nicole
