Embossing Tool: Birthday Card


In keeping with the statistics, August is filled with lots of birthdays for my family and friends, so I decided to use the large end of the Pazzles Embossing Tool and some cute files from the Pazzles Craft Room Library to create a debossed birthday card in the Inspiration Studio Pro 2014 software.

The 5×7 inch landscape-oriented card is in five pieces:
1-The 10×7 inch card base (on white cardstock) which folds to 5×7 inch with a kiss cut line.
2-The card front (on sea green cardstock) which is a 0.20 inline of a 5×7 rectangle, debossed with a 0.10 inline and with happy happy happy BiRtHDAY (fonts list at end),
3-The banner mount (on white cardstock), which is the straight banner from the Ribbon-Banners file sized to about 6.6 inches wide by dragging the corner handle, and modified by moving the left pair of kiss cuts a bit to the right to make them the same distance from the left tails as the right kiss cut pair is from the right tails
4-The dimensional sentiment (on teal cardstock) from the Miss Kate Cuttables Celebrate Title, with debossed letters and cut around the whole word (on the largest outline of the word which is darker gray),
5-A star balloon (on teal cardstock) from the Miss Kate Cuttables New Years Balloons file, debossed  on the circles and edge accents and cut out with its string.

Penny Spinner Card

Back in 2013 we shared this card designed by Joanna Wright for National Scrapbook Day and the files were available for only a few short hours. It’s such a cool idea, and we’ve had requests for the files ever since, so today we are re-releasing this project with the files for Craft Room Members. Download the files and start out by making this card. Once you have the concept down, use this idea with any number of files from the Craft Room for a WOW card that is sure to impress!

Home Decor Vacation Shaker Frame

Vacation Shaker Box

Have you ever had something like sand, seashells or any other very small piece of memorabilia that you didn’t know how to share?   This week’s project was created with just this in mind.

While on vacation, Jeff and I picked up some very tiny seashells that were perfectly shaped, but too small for basic display, so I began thinking of ideas of how to display them.  I thought of shaker cards, but that was just not going to work.  That is when I realized I could do a simple frame with a shaker box on it.  This would allow me to put the year, location, add a photo, and have the memorabilia all in one place.

No Class August 28, 2016


Just a reminder that there is no class this week.

This would be a great time to review some videos or just spend the day with family or crafting.
