Scrapbook.com Black Friday Week

Black Friday Week


Happy Tuesday, crafty friends, and happy Thanksgiving week to my friends and family in the States! The holiday deals are continuing this week at Scrapbook.com with new specials and some fabulous freebies for your shopping enjoyment, including:

Tuesday 11/24 Black Friday Week

Today’s special offers include the 10 Best Deals of 2020 and an extra 5% off coupon code, and as if that wasn’t enough of an incentive to shop, you will receive a FREE Sizzix Merry & Bright Thinlits Die Set  with your order! Of course you all know that I’m a big fan of Sizzix dies, and the script on this word die is particularly fabulous. I love that the size of this die is perfect for card making, as well as tags, too. Because we can all use a lot of tags at the holidays, right?


I am always a sucker for cute critters, and there’s just something about this sweet mouse from PhotoPlay Paper’s Not a Creature Was Stirring collection that seems perfectly fitting for this time of year. I paired the mouse and holly  with plaid paper from PhotoPlay’s other holiday collection this year, Christmas Cheer, for this fun gift tag. I think this tag would look so festive on holiday packages this year.


Wasn’t I right? Isn’t the font on this Merry & Bright word die fantastic? Love that the wording is all connected, which makes using an intricate die like this very easy. For this project, I die cut the sentiment multiple times from both bright red and crisp white cardstock, and then stacked the die cuts in alternating colors to create sort of a candy cane stripe when viewed from the side. It’s a subtle touch, but a fun little surprise. And this is a great way to add dimension to very thin pieces like these.


The tag shape itself and the white scalloped border along the bottom were made with dies from PhotoPlay Paper’s Holiday Say It With Stamps collection. The images were colored with Copic markers, and I added ribbon and twine at the top of the tag to finish the design.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow with more fun from Scrapbook.com. Until then, wishing you all a very wonderful day!

Therm O Web & Reverse Confetti Week


Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! We’re having some fun on the Therm O Web blog, joining up with our friends at Reverse Confetti for a week of project ideas and inspiration. And of course a good collaboration week needs a prize giveaway, too, so be sure to keep reading to the bottom of this post.

I am up on the Therm O Web blog today with a fun card and tag set featuring new stamps from the Reverse Confetti November release paired with our fabulous iCraft Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets.


I am a big sucker for plaid, so I was very excited to receive the adorable Plaid Lines Big and Small Cover Panel die sets from Reverse Confetti. What awesome backgrounds they make, and such easy ones, too. I die cut two different shades of our green flock sheets for this card, and layered them onto a crisp white card base. The Circle Rays Duo die, the monstera  plant image, and the sentiment are all from RC, as well. I simply added a small piece of ribbon trim, and used pop dots for dimension, to finish this design.


I also made a pair of gift tags using the same floral and sentiment stamps sets as the card above. There are two different circle sizes in the Circle Rays Duo die set, and I used the smaller one this time to layer behind the openings of the tags. I love the extra detail that bit of texture adds to the background, and I tell you what…this fun Fold Over Window Tag die is one of my current faves from RC. So simple to put together, and useful for so many things.

If you are interested in learning more about today’s projects, I have the complete step-by-step tutorial posted on the Therm O Web blog. And now, how about a prize giveaway?

How To: Fabric Scraps on Tags


Happy Friday, crafty friends! Today I’m back to wrap up a week of fabric inspiration here on the blog with one last project. So far this week I’ve shared an easy-sew fabric project bag and a fun technique for adding fabric die cuts to paper-crafts. And today I’m once again showing a super simple and sweet way to incorporate fabric with paper. This time, on a set of gift tags featuring pleated fabric borders and ties.


It seems I can’t make anything without being left with a pile of scraps and leftovers, and the same holds true for working with fabric. Honestly, those scraps usually end up in the trash. But this time, I decided to put the scraps to use, and came up with these cute gift tags, perfect for wrapping up some small gifties I had for my BFF’s birthday celebration last week.


You all know I’m a sucker for cute little critters, so I couldn’t resist the Party on the Farm stamps and dies from Hello, Bluebird. The sweet farm animals were colored with Copic markers, die cut with the coordinating dies, and popped onto the tags with foam tape for a bit of dimension. I used a very old tag die from Papertrey Ink to make the tags and two different colors of Gina K Designs blue cardstock. Another oldie from my stash, the Fiskars cloud punch, added a little accent to each tag.


Of course I used the fabric strips to tie the tags to the cello gift bags. But I also made pleated borders across the bottom of the tags with more leftover fabric strips. And it’s very fun and easy to do. Simply add a thin line of Therm O Web Fabric Fuse glue across the tag, spread it even thinner with your finger, and then add the fabric, bunching and pleating the fabric strip as you go. The glue holds the fabric in place, while giving you enough open time to manipulate the strips as needed. I added a line of machine stitching down the center of the fabric to keep it in place, and topped it all off with some stamped sentiment banners.

It felt really good to use up some scraps instead of adding them to the trash heap, and I love how the blue sky backgrounds of these tags coordinate so nicely with the new Speckled Egg Distress ink I gifted my friends. How about you all? Have you snatched up the new color yet? Is it perfect, or what?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Sending Sunshine with Therm O Web


Happy Thursday, crafty friends! There’s nothing like pulling a bit of happy mail out of the post box, and with the current situation of quarantine and COVID 19, this holds true even more so than ever. So today I am sharing a festive and happy card that is sure to brighten up anyone’s day and fill a mailbox full of sunshine.


I made this card for Therm O Web this past week, and it features two of the GinaK Designs stamp sets along with the soft velvety texture of iCraft Deco Foil Flock transfer sheets. I love all the different ways that the flock sheets can be used and how they add a different visual element to a design. I used the flock as-is here, but also die cut and stamped on it, too. I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.


Sending lots of sunshine your way, friends! Be well!

A Huge Celebration with Ranger Ink


Hello, crafty friends! I hope you are doing well, staying strong, and keeping the faith through these difficult times. We are doing good… knock on wood. But I think when all of this is finally over, that will call for a huge celebration, like this card that I made for the Ranger Ink project page says.


Ranger just recently released a new edition to their Stickles glitter line, Stickles Glitter Gel. This new glitter gel comes in a variety of metallic colors and works perfectly with stencils, like I’ve done here. I always love the sparkle and shine of a good glitter project. And if you look closely, you can see that these new gels contain fine glitter mixed with larger sequin pieces, which makes this product different from anything else I’ve seen on the market.


I mixed the new glitter gel with a touch of Distress Ink in soft pink, and a large sentiment stamp from the Ranger LetterIt collection. The heart stencil is new to Ranger, too.

I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for this card project up on the Ranger Ink project page, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be well!

Therm O Web & Rina K. Designs Neon Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Therm O Web & Rina K. Designs Neon Blog Hop! We are so excited to share with you this new line-up of Electro-Pop Neon products including enamel transfer sheets, flock transfer sheets, and Glitz Glitter Gel in hot neon colors we know you will love. I hope you will join us and help celebrate this fun new release today along this blog hop filled with tips and tricks, inspiration, and the opportunity to win one of two $50 gift cards. Keep reading to the end of the post for more information on that.


My project for the hop features the new Rina K. Designs Stampn’Stencil set called Sending Sunshine and the fabulous new neon color, Screamin’ Green. My daughter, who absolutely adores a good pun, is going to love this fun summer-inspired card. And with all this Corona virus health scare going on, I think we all wouldn’t mind being isolated on a tropical island right about now.


I used lots of crisp white Therm O Web cardstock and some Gina K. Designs oval dies on this project, along with the Aloha collection pack from Photo Play Paper. The Sending Sunshine pineapple stamp is a three-step stamp which allows you to stamp the layers in different colors. The Screamin’ Green ink and flock transfer sheet used around the edge of the oval frame really add a nice pop of color.


Be sure to leave a comment at each blog for your chance to win one of two Therm O Web $50 gift cards. Entries close March 22nd at 11:59 pm CST, and the winners will be announced on the Therm O Web blog on the 24th at 1:00 pm CST.

Thanks so much for stopping by! The next stop along the hop is Lynnea Hollendonner.

Huge Celebration with Therm O Web Glitz


Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day and President’s Day holiday, as it’s been a hot minute since last I wrote. Today I have another Creativation card project to share that I made for the Therm O Web booth featuring Glitz Glitter Gel.


Although this card focused on the glittery Brilliant Blue Glitz background, it is a real mix of lots of my current favorite products. I used a Therm O Web rectangle die to cut out the large sentiment, which is an awesome new stamp from the Ranger Ink LetterIt line. I filled in the lettering with Copic coloring, and used the same markers to draw around the edge of the frame. That is My Favorite Winter 6×6 paper by Echo Park, and a cutie pie deer image from Hello Bluebird.


Just like that, we are halfway through February, already. I don’t know where the time goes. I’m still working away on my cross stitch project that I started last month, but am happy to say that I’m really getting close to the end now. And I recently snuck off on a little trip to Richmond to pop in on Pete. And I may, or may not, have dropped a penny or two at a needlepoint shop while I was there. Hope you are all doing well, and are having a fabulous winter! Thanks for stopping by!

January 2020 CardMaps- Hug in a Mug

PMU Header

Hello, hello, crafty friends, and happy New Year! I hope you all had a very wonderful holiday season, and that 2020 is off to a great start for you! Can you believe we are starting a whole new decade? Time sneaks away so quickly. I still clearly remember all the excitement of starting a new century in 2000……..like it was yesterday. 😀

With the start of a new year comes a whole new set of card making sketches on the PageMaps blog, and today I’m sharing the first card I made with the January sketches. Here is the fun sketch that I used, and my take on it featuring some adorable stamps by Hello Bluebird.


I’m sure you all know what a sucker I am for the cute little critters. Hello Bluebird has some of the cutest ones out there, including these sweeties from the Cocoa Party stamp set. Although this is mostly a holiday set, I think the images are perfect for a blustery winter look with their hot beverages and woolly jumpers. We’ve been having weather from the mid 50’s to the mid 70’s these past few weeks, so this may be the closest I get to actual snow this year.


My favorite paper collection for holiday cards this year was definitely Echo Park Paper’s My Favorite Christmas, so of course I had to try out their next release, My Favorite Winter. I picked out two snowy prints to follow the sketch design, layered with crisp white cardstock to make everything pop. The images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the matching dies. The ovals are from the Limitless Layers Oval die set by Papertrey Ink.


Wishing you all a very crafty new year! And thanks so much for stopping by!

2019 Holiday Card Series- Day 9 with Therm O Web and Pink & Main


Happy Tuesday, crafty friends, and welcome to Day 8 of my 2019 Holiday Card Series. Last week I shared some silly llama tags that I had made for the recent Pink & Main match-up on the Therm O Web blog, and today’s project is a continuation of that post with this set of holiday llama cards.


Aren’t these llamas woolly adorable? They are from the Fa La Llama stamp set from Pink & Main. I colored my images with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. The glittery background was made with a bit of masking and Therm O Web’s new Silver color of Glitz Glitter Gel. That stuff is so awesome for adding some holiday sparkle and shine.


I’m such a sucker for plaid. Love this Kringle & Co. paper by Photo Play Paper. As always, I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

2019 Holiday Card Series- Day 6 with Therm O Web & Pink & Main


Hello friends, welcome to Day 6 of my 2019 Holiday Card Series. Today’s project is not a card, but a set of tags that I made for the recent Pink & Main collaboration on the Therm O Web blog. This is the adorable Fa La Llama stamp set mixed with fun plaid paper from Photo Play Paper and one of the newest colors of Glitz Glitter Gel from Therm O Web.


The tags were die cut from GinaK Designs Red Velvet cardstock using the Decorative Tag die set. And then I gave the tags an overall glittery backdrop using Silver Glitz and my favorite snowy stencil. Super easy and quick, and I love the sparkly shine. As always, I’ve got the full tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Just one more day until the weekend! Hope it’s a good one!
