Papercrafting With Karla – Gift Bag, Shaker Tag and Card Set

Hi friends! Karla here today with a sweet Christmas gift set using lots of fun tools (our theme this month!) and the sequin mixes Hustle Bustle, Shabby Chic Christmas and Eye of The Tiger. This purse was so fun to make with one sheet of 12×12 patterned cardstock following this video. Of course the best part is decorating it with all the fun goodies 😉 @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @heartfeltcreations #smssequins #sequins #heartfeltcreations #christmas #crafting #giftset #cardmaking #gifttag #paperfolds #doily #diecut #fusetool #cropodile #scoreboard #wermemorykeepers

I had so much fun with so many tools in my stash! The We R Memory Keepers 123 punch board and the Score Board made creating the cute purse so easy. I used the Fuse Tool to made the little tag into a shaker pocket with an extra pocket page and the Crop-O-Dile was perfect to add the little eyelet (remember those!!) to the top of my tags.

After I created the shaker pockets and added my sequins and glitter I connected them with a brass eyelet and then threaded some SMS black burlap string through the opening. I had a couple extra tags so I decided to make another one at the same time!

The gold doily (on sale at the SMS shop now!!) was the perfect layering piece behind the pretty flower created using Heartfelt Creations dies and coordinating stamps. Some Stickles around the edges of the flower and some beads in the center give it a little extra bling.

I already had some of the pretty Heartfelt Creations papers out, so I whipped up a quick and easy Christmas card just by layering and matting and adding a pretty gold bow and the beautiful sequins. I love the pop of gold those Eye of The Tigers sequins give!

Creative Cards With Karla – Typewriter Card and Bookmark Set!

Hello friends! Karla here today, and I hope you’ve had a wonderful week so far. I’ve been having fun with the SpiegelMom Scraps June theme – Take Us Back June – and been thinking of lots of retro icons to have fun with this month. I found some fun typewriter paper along with a cut apart image in my stash and decided it would make a great card and bookmark set. While I was looking through my sequin mixes to see what matched my project I found some lovely colours in the Holiday Traditions sequin mix and then grabbed the Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix to go along with it. Now, I wouldn’t have automatically grabbed these two mixes for either a summer or a retro project, but I realized they work and I need to mix and match more of the mixes that I might be overlooking!@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @projectlife #fusetool #bookmark #card #giftset #stamping #ribbon #sequins #cork #spiegelmomscrap

I recently picked up one of the Becky Higgins Fuse Tools and I am loving it! I love the look of shaker pockets, but when it comes right down to it, I just don’t have the patience to think about all the details to make that little shaker area! Well, this made it sooo easy! I cut the typewriter card out of the cut apart sheet and used a pocket page from my stash to fuse around 3 edges. I glued on my cute Cork Confetti Heart and added some sequins and glitter to my pocket before fusing the top. Easy-peasy!! I used some Scor tape to tape my pocket to the card base and added a little tab at the top stamped with a greeting from an older CTMH stamp set.

Inside, I used a stamp from the Your Next Stamp Whatnot Sentiment Ten set and added more sequins and some washi tape along the bottom. A few dots of Stickles on the letters add a bit more bling! Well, I couldn’t stop at just a card, so as I was thinking about what I could create next with my fun Fuse tool I thought a bookmark would be great! It could fit into an envelope with the card and add a little something extra for that special person! I layered on my papers, stamped with the typefont CTMH stamp set and created the pocket the same way as above, using more of the Holiday Traditions sequins and the Mocha Mint Dream sequins again. I punched a hole in the top, and since I was using a thick ribbon I wasn’t worried about anything coming out of the hole.

Here’s a look at the back of the bookmark – where I again used the YNS sentiment stamp.
