D.I.Y valentine Banner with Kat Scrappiness

Do you have a HUGE stash of 12×12 patterned paper that you got from a Michael’s sale and running out of ideas to use them all up? How about making a DIY Valentine’s Banner? With a few dies from Kat Scrappiness, Inc. you can make a collection of cute banners to display for any occasion and season.

I always LOVE decorating for Valentine’s Day but sometimes I just don’t have the time to go out and get a few decor. Since I have a lot of craft supplies, I figured I’d make my own banner today.

Here’s how I made this project:

  • measure the counter and cut the twine.
  • prepare your hot-glue gun and sticks and line them all up together with your twine.
  • I have a few vase fillers that I purchased from Daiso a few years ago so I figured I’d add them to my project. I adhered the foam hearts first and added the die-cut hearts.
  • make sure to use a silicone mat underneath so your project doesn’t stick on your table.
  • adhere the letters “XO” on the pink heart.
  • use some stickers to adhere on the other die-cuts. As I mentioned we are using our stash so go ahead and add them to your project.
  • I placed my banner on the kitchen counter and added a few of my favorite decor and candles from Home Goods.
  • light up the candles and enjoy your work!

Before I go, take advantage of this Valentine’s deal by Kat Scrappiness, Inc. Sale starts today and ends on the 7th. See graphic below for your coupon code:

Kat Scrappiness January Release – Day 2

Hello my crafty peeps!  It is day 2 of the January release by Kat Scrappiness and the design team is showcasing the new “I Love You” shadow dies.   We also have a giveaway every day during release week.  We are picking one winner for each release day so a total of three winners!  Please head on over the the Kat Scrappiness blog post to leave a comment.  Here’s the link:  http://katscrappinessblog.com/january-release-day-2-i-love-you-shadow-dies/

I started out by stamping the images on some 110 lb card stock.  I used the stamp set from Altenew called Watercolor dots.  I embossed this piece using a hearts embossing folder that I purchased from Hobby Lobby.  I also die-cut two tags using the Stitched Scalloped Nesting dies.

I die-cut the word “love” from the new I Love You shadow dies on pink, and die-cut the shadow with some vellum.  I used my hearts embossing folder to emboss the white tag and adhered this piece on the black tag to layer it.  I adhered the “love” sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment on black card stock with versamark and heat-set this with my heating tool.

To finish my design, I die-cut the bow from my stash and adhered the red heart from the heart sprinkles embellishment mix.   Here’s a closer look:

There’s Snow One Like You with Kat Scrappiness

Hello my crafty peeps! Maria here with you today and I’m back with a Christmas card, showcasing the Merry Critters stamp set.  I LOVE this stamp set so much and I just couldn’t wait to play with it.

I started by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers.  The little yellow bird reminds me so much of tweety!   Here’s what the stamp set look like:

Since this stamp set didn’t come with coordinating dies, I die-cut the images using my Brother Scan N Cut 2.

I inked up my background with some distress oxide inks.  I ahve been loving the Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar color combination lately!  It gives the perfect wintery-sky!  Here’s my card:

I used some white glittered card stock as well to create my snow hill.  I think this card turned out so cute.  Here’s a little close-up:

I Craft Therefore I Hoard

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are all having a great week so far. Maria here with you today and I am back to share with you two card samples showcasing the new Crafter’s Gonna Craft stamp set, with the new Stitched Scalloped Collage Frame Die.

I have been super busy traveling for the last few weeks that I don’t have a step-by-step instruction for you.  I guess if you are a card maker or a scrapbooker, you would have figured out how I made the cards already but I apologize if you are a beginner.  Please know that once I am back on a regular schedule, I will have a step-by-step tutorial or even a YouTube video. I promise!  Here’s my first simple, one-layer card:

 

This new stamp set is a must-have for any paper crafter!  Here’s another look:

 

My second card just cracks me up!  If you are a crafter, I am sure you can relate with the sentiment.

 

 

Isn’t it true though?  I am such a hoarder.  I collect anything and everything that I can use for a future project, it drives my husband nuts!  I didn’t realize how much hoarding I’ve been doing until it was time to pack up most of my craft supplies to move it all back to my home in Florida.

 

I also LOVE the new sparkling jewels at the shop.  They come in different colors but my favorite is the clear, sparkling one that I used on my project.  I prefer adhering it flat-side up and I think it gives more shine.

I hope you like my projects today.  Please don’t forget to check out the August release by Kat Scrappiness.  The new dies are must-haves for sure!  Don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIA10” for 10% off your order.  Also, don’t forget to check out the Lawn Fawn items that are currently on sale at the shop for 20% off by using code “LAWNFAWN”.  It is only valid until August 12th.  Have an amazing day and happy crafting!
