Fresh Strawberries!


I was looking around Pinterest and my list of blogs I love to check out-and this shadow box was so cute! Super easy too!  Dawn Olchefske was kind enough to share her instructions on her blog.

I used the Fresh Fruit set with Whisper White for the front piece and Daffodil Delight for the back piece.

  1. You will cut 2 pieces of cardstock to 4 1/4″x 5 1/2″.
  2. Score each piece at 1/2″ x 1″ on each end
  3. I stamped the Strawberry and other accents randomly on the Whisper White piece.
  4. Place Layering Circle Framelits (largest 2 7/8″)
  5. Place the stamped top piece on top of the back piece and mark points with a pencil to help with stamp alignment.
  6. Stamp sentiment inside
  7. Fold on all score lines (fan fold)
  8. Place Tear & Tape long far sides only of the base and adhere to the top piece.
  9. Push sides inward to create shadow box effect.

Cheerful Summer


I was not able to go to On Stage in April (sniffle…..) but I did watch the broadcast on our demonstrator website!  I loved this idea of making 9 cards out of one piece of 12×12 DSP!  And, when the new catalog came out, I HAD to have this Fresh Fruit stamp set and matching paper! Love the summery vibrant colors and the pops of fruit to accent them!

Easy to make: PicCollage

Step 1: Take a 4″x4″ piece of 12″x12″ DSP and cut diagonal.  I lined tip to tip in the cutting area.

Step 2: Pull apart and put adhesive on the back.

Step 3: Just shows the before picture of the 4″x 4″ piece

Step 4: Align with Whisper White mat (4″x 5 1/4″) leaving the center for your sentiment

That’s it!  So addicting too! SO go get your paper hoards and start making a lot of cards quickly!
