Holiday Cards – Day 4

By | Cards | No Comments

Hello All,

Welcome back to another day of Holiday cards. I hope you’re enjoying following along with all the little projects I’ve been making.

One of my favorite things to do when designing cards are to create a simple layout that can easily be duplicated. Today’s cards are a prime example of easy to duplicate styles.

For these cards, I used minimal supplies. I used a nice thin washi tape that reminds me of a candy stripe. I then added several coordinating stickers that are beautifully opaque and thick from American Crafts. I found the collection to have many styles and patterns that I liked — so I decided to create several variations of cards.

Here’s a look at how quickly they came together.

Here’s a look at all the cards created from this washi and sticker project day!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again real soon with all new projects.

Hello Note Cards Gem Gold Foil

By | Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories | No Comments

Hi All,

Have you been keeping up with all the different note card sets that I’ve shared this week? I have saved my personal favorite for today! For this card, I kept the color palate very soft and neutral. This card features a gorgeous gold foil gem pattern which is actually printed on a matte off-white vellum. It is beautiful! I also embossed the cards with a raised small dot pattern. The hello sentiment is dimensional and sits atop the embossing. To separate the two patterns I used a small gray striped border using thin Japanese washi tape.

Here’s a closer look!

I love how the gold picks up the light and becomes reflective!

The embossing leaves a gorgeous pattern on the interior of the card as well. I love this subtle detail!

Washi Tape Craftroom Storage Idea

Hi Friends!

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I recently changed up my entire office space. I gave it a fresh coat of paint, some new fabrics and drapes & changed out containers to better suite the space. Throughout the process, I’ve been trying to find unique pieces to create storage. I’m a huge fan of thrift store finds and was on the lookout for some pieces for my space or future projects!

I found two items on 2 different occasions.

First, I found an old ornate looking shelf. \\click here to read that post\\

A few months later, I found a box that looked alot like a letter type box or a configuration box. I’m not entirely sure what its intended purpose was.

I designed a Christmas configuration box a while ago and thought maybe this piece could function in a similar way. \\Click here to view the configuration box I made for Christmas.\\

As I was reorganizing this week, I figured it was time to get this piece painted. I grabbed a can of my all time favorite spray paint by American Accents and gave the piece a couple coats of spray paint. Immediately I thought of a FANTASTIC purpose for the piece. “I wonder if this would fit a roll of tape,” I thought.

Guess what? It totally does! These tapes used to take up 3 jars in my space. How crazy is that?!

Oh, my crafty heart!

I decided to pair the piece up with my other shelf.

I can’t believe how fantastic these two pieces turned out! Seriously friends, if you haven’t checked out your local thrift store for some awesome storage finds…you should! Keep in mind that a fresh coat of paint can change an entire piece!

~Happy hunting!
