This Southern Tongue did it again! 

We posted a video of a brand new collection, just in the shop yesterday and my Southern slang got the best of me and I pronounced it just like I saw it lol. I knew better, just didn't do better. The beautiful city that this collection is named after nestles along the French Riviera and was made famous in the early fifties by Brigitte Bardot. A place that I would love to visit but will most likely never get to go. This city is Saint Tropez, pronounced, Sant-Troupès in Provençal dialect. Or to this Southern girl "Sant Tro-pay". So sorry for the error in the pronounciation but never-the-less this collection is beautiful as well as the city it's named after.

Purse Mini Album

I have been working on this project for a few days and finally got the opportunity to finish it. It doesn't take that long, but I kept getting interrupted lol. I love these albums and they hold a ton of photos and memorabilia. I am leaving a link to the two part video and the instructions on measurements are below. If you have any questions please let me know.

Part one of the video tutorial: https://youtu.be/r6pEA7mz6oo
Part two of the video tutorial: https://youtu.be/FXGY6VyzC0U

The mini has 6 pages front and back, 6 flaps front and back and 6 pockets. The full overall size is 7"x7"x3" not including the handles. 

You will need the following or something similar to create this project. 

Front, Back and Spine

 2 pieces of chipboard cut at 7"x7"
Spine - 1 piece of chipboard cut at 3"x7"

To cover the chipboard I use two pieces of 12x12 craft paper glued together and then cut down to 
19 1/4"x9". Make sure to cut off each end on the long way so that your seam will fall in the middle of the spine piece, this makes it easier to cover. 

Outside cover sheets 

 2 - 6 1/2"x 6 1/2" of paper
Spine mat is cut at 2 1/2"x 6 1/2"

Inside Mat - 2 sheets cut at 8 1/2" and then either glue them together or I just put them down with the seam falling in the middle of the spine. 

Pages

1 - 7 1/4"x6 1/4" sheet , score on the 7 1/4" side at 1/2" on both ends
1 - 6 1/4"x6 1/4" no scoring on this sheet
1 - 4 3/4"x6 1/4" score on the 4 1/4" side at 1/2" on one end. 

Glue the 6 1/4x6 1/4 sheets onto the longer sheet using the 1/2" folds you made this will create you pocket. For the flap cut a slight slant off the 1/2" fold so that it will insert into the pocket easily. Glue inside one end of the pocket. Only put glue on one side of the 1/2" flap so that you will have an open pocket. (All this is shown in the video linked above)

Mats for Pages 

6x6 sheets for the pages themselves
4x6 sheet for the flaps

Handles

Cut at 12"x2" and scored at 1" down the long way.

Closure

2 pieces cut at 5x1 3/4", put your magnet inside and glue together. Round the ends. 

To create the faux leather look I used Kaisercraft kraft cardstock, Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink and art glitter glue. Then my bone folder to rough it up a little. (shown in the photo)

Any questions please let me know. And if you make this project please share with us in our members room. HERE

Tool Box With Tools, From Paper & Stamps

I wanted to create this last week, but things just didn't work out. Hopefully it will help someone with a Fathers day card. This is a cute tool box equipped with tools, just using stamps and dies and a little coloring. The video is uploading and below are the measurements.

Video Tutorial: https://youtu.be/Ox1CFDUOSRA

Measurements:

Cardstock 11 x 8 1/2 inches
Score on long side at 2 1/2", 4", 7", 8 1/2"
Turn one turn score at 1 1/2", 7"

On the 1 1/2" score lines cut away the first rectangle on all four sides. Then just cut up on the square box that is left, this creates your tab. 

Find the center of the long center rectangle on the sides where you just cut the block away and mark lightly. Use your score tool to create a triangle box from the score line up to the mark you made. 

Glue the small tabs to the outside of the box. Then fold up the long flaps to close the box. 

If all this is confusing follow the video. 

I stamped out tools from and Altenew stamp and die set found here

Mat is 2 1/4"x 5 1/4", this is used on the long closure flaps. Decorate as desired

little closure piece is 1 x 2 inches scored in the middle and glued together. Glue one piece down and then put Velcro on the other to make the closure.

Mini Album ~ Card ~ ??

Here is a project we worked on this morning. I have been wanting to create this for a while but just couldn't squeeze it in. Well today we just did it. lol The video is uploading now and the measurements are below along with some photos.

Hope you enjoy the video: https://youtu.be/eyjeGdnSYVQ

Cardstock 10 1/4x5 1/2 inches
Score on the long side at 3 1/8", 6 1/4", 9 3/8"

Second piece of card-stock 5 1/2"x3 1/8"

This will glue to the small flap on the first part you made. This just makes more room for photos. 

9 mats cut at 5 1/4"x2 7/8"

For the top piece where the hearts are cut you will need two pieces cut at 5 1/8"x3 1/8"
Score on the long side at 1 1/2", 4 1/4", 4 1/2"
For this you will need two mats cut at 2 1/2"x2 7/8"

Cut your heart out of the flap as shown in the video

For the Top piece you will need a piece of cardstock cut at 5 1/2"x3 7/8" 
score on the short side at 3 1/8," 3 3/8"
The mat for this piece is one of the 9 you cut earlier

You will also need 4 mats for the inside cut at 2 1/2"x2 3/4", these go on after you finish the outside. 

The slit for the heart is cut as shown in the video. This will depend on how large your heart is. I just free-handed mine so it was about 1 1/5" all together. 

Mat the heart or leave it plain. 

The paper used was Rustic Cottage from the store: http://bit.ly/2s1D1dL

Beautiful Napkin Fold Card & Quick Coloring Technique

Here is a beautiful fun card that is easy to make but looks like you took hours. Below are the measurements and then you can just watch the video to see how it all comes together.

Card stock 9 1/2"x 9 1/2"
Score at 2 3/8", 4 3/4", 7 1/8" turn just one turn and score the same on the opposite side.

Now you will fold sides to the center as shown on the video. 

Make sure to fold both ways so it breaks down the fibers. 

Now fold up the points to meet the center. Again fold both ways to break down the fibers.

Contrasting card-stock 4 pcs 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" - cut from one point to the other making triangles.

These you will use to mat the triangles on your paper as shown on the video.

2 pc of another contrasting card-stock cut at 3"x 3" and split from corner to corner creating triangles.

These will cover the large triangles on the inside of the card as shown on the video. 

2 pc of card-stock (I use a third color) cut at 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" and cut from corner to corner. 

A circle for the center approx 1" and a smaller one for the center of that circle

Place your magnets under the middle circle and glue

Your opposite magnet goes on the back.  

Center pieces for stamping 3 3/4"x 3 3/4" and the piece I stamped I just use a die to cut out a top note shape. 

Have fun with these they are so easy but look so difficult.

This is for Aaron our Grandson

I am so pleased to be sharing this post with all of my Facebook friends and family. Our company has now partnered with NationalAutismResources.com, a fantastic group of people.

As most of you know we have a grandson, Aaron, who was diagnosed with Autism almost 14 years ago. This is something that has impacted our lives for almost 17 years now, and we are just the grandparents. Our daughter and son-in-law face these challenges and struggles with our sweet grandson every day.  Aaron has come a long way from a little boy who the doctors said would never talk, communicate, or show love and affection, to the handsome loving young man he is today. He not only talks but also sings gospel songs, and in front of large crowds. He has come a long way but there are still obstacles and challenges each and every day for Aaron and his family.

Autism now effects 1 in every 68 children born in the United States. It is one of those silent illnesses that you never know about until one day you look at your 4 year old and wonder why he is not talking, communicating or socializing as others his age do.  When my grandson was born in 2000 Autism effected 1 in every 500 children. The increase is staggering and continues to rise. We have to find a cure for this terrible illness.

My grandson looks just like any other 17 year old, therefore it is hard for someone who doesn't know he has issues to understand why he is sometimes having a meltdown because his schedule was changed. Autistic children lead a very structured life and anything out of the norm can cause them to come apart. There is just not enough awareness for outsiders to understand. So the next time you see a child "misbehaving" in public and you think to yourself, "that child needs discipline" try to remember that 1 in every 68 children you meet may be Autistic and can not help their actions anymore than you can help scratching an itch.

I said all of that to say this. In teaming up with the National Autism Resources Co, we are an affiliate for them. This means that you will see post from time to time from me that has photos and or links to the products NAR carries and information I receive from the. If you click on these links and make a purchase I earn a small commission. All the money from this affiliate link/s will go to Aaron's savings account to help with his education, physical and mental needs.  If you would like to help Aaron out you can do so by clicking one of these links and if you see something that you or someone you know could use you can make a purchase. The cost of the items is the same, there is no price increase for using these links.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Below is a photo of our sweet grandson.

Graduation Slider Gift Box with Hidden Card

This is a cute and simple project but it is oh so fun to giveaway. Put candy in the box and make them think that is all they are getting, and when they slide the box out to see, presto you have a card slide out the other end.

So easy and fun for graduation gifts.

The tutorial is uploading now and here are the written measurements and links to supplies I used.

Cardstock 8x8 inches
Use your envelope punch board and punch and score at these measurements
2 5/8" punch & score, turn
3 3/8" punch & score, turn
2 5/8" punch & score, turn
3 3/8" punch & score, turn

Then go back to the score lines that are beside the punch outs and place the little point of the envelope punch board on that score line, punching again and scoring. This score line should come out right in the middle of the side punch you made prior. Do this all the way around. 

Now you need to cut some tabs, take the two larger points and cut the score line to the side of the large points just up to the first score line, this creates 4 tabs to glue the box together. 

Now we need to do a little more folding. Take one of the tabs and fold it over at the first score line, then fold it over again, causing the end of the tab to score along with the second score line. These parts will glue down to the inside of the box creating stronger sides. 

Bottom of the box cut at 4 1/8"x3 1/8" - this piece will go in the bottom of the box when you have glued all the sides down to the inside. Just as another extra support. 

Slider card holder- cut at 4 1/4"x7 1/8" score on the long side at 3/4, 7/8, 4 1/8 and 4 1/4. Fold and burnish well. 

Slots for the plastic slider. On the bottom of the piece you just created come in 1/4" from the last score line and make a small mark, do this on both sides and on both ends. Then take you ruler and join these 1/8" from edge of paper. You are cutting out a 1/8" slot. 

Plastic slider: I used a sandwich bag, it is better to use a larger plastic bag that does not have any side edges on it. The smother the better.  Cut this piece 2 3/4"x8 3/4" fold around keeping it in the slots and glue the ends together. Be careful not to get glue on the box, just glue the plastic together so it will slide around. I used score tape. 

The Hidden card piece: cut at 4 1/8"x3 1/8" - put glue just on one of the short end of this piece, not all over. If you have a side that you want up when you slide it out make sure to put the adhesive on that side. You will then place it on the plastic inside the flaps and center and glue. Then glue the flaps together trapping the card inside. 


Take the box you made and put adhesive just on one end, on the other end put a piece of ribbon in the center for a pull tab, gluing it to the bottom of the box. Make sure to just glue the box to the  plastic only. Glue  the box on the opposite end as you did the slider card. You want them to slide out on opposite ends. Press it down in the center. 

Wrap Around: Cardstock 4 1/4"x10 1/2" score on the long side at 2, 3 5/8, 6 7/8, 8 1/2.  Wrap this piece around the box and slider piece and glue to the bottom of slider piece only. 

Now you are ready to decorate:

Mats are cut at 3x4 inches and 3 3/4x2 3/4 inches. 

Cap is cut at 2x2

Travel Folio and Huge Announcement

Today we made a travel folio to keep those receipts, documents, or just memorabilia in when you are traveling. I love making these little folios, so easy and simple, but look so nice. And of course we went with a beach theme since I love the beach and wish I was there now lol. All the links to the products I used are below and the link to the full tutorial as well.

2 pieces of Chipboard cut at 4'x7'
Book Spine heavy card-stock cut at 3"x7"
Score the spine piece at 3/4" on each end of the long side, then score at every 1/8" between those two score lines, creating the spine fold. 

2 pieces of card-stock for the cover cut at 9'x5' inches
Place on outside starting at where the chipboard meets the spine, leaving about the same amount of overhang on all three sides.

Flip over cut out your corners and fold excess over creating your book cover. 

Inside cover piece, cut at  3 7/8'x 6 7/8' inches. You will need 2 of these. 

Glue these on the inside covering the raw edges of the outer paper. 

2 pcs of card-stock cut at 4x4.5, score at every 1/2" on the 4.5" side.

Melina's Birthday Swiper Card

This is a quick and easy card but very, very cute. Below are the measurements and you will find the full tutorial on the YouTube link below. 

You will need: 

2 pieces of card stock 4 1/4x6 3/4 inches
On the long side score at 1", and 1 3/4" on both pieces

Mats solid white cut at 4 1/8x4 7/8 inches
Designer Paper mat cut at 4x 4 3/4"

Side panel mat: solid white cut at 4 1/8"x7/8" 
Designer paper mat cut at 3/4x4 inches

The Swiper part is cut at 2x2 3/4 inches

Score on one of the points just 3/4" in from point making sure you keep it straight across. 

You will fold the score lines on the two card stock pieces like a "Z"

On the card stock piece you are using for the front, measure down on the first score line from to 
1 3/4" and make a pencil mark. 

At this point is where you will glue the part on your swiper that you just scored and folded. Gluing the long part straight up the score line. 

For the tiny envelope I cut this at 3x3 and scored in from each point 1 1/8". You can always put balloons or other things on here doesn't have to be an envelope. Just glue the envelope on the swiper about half way down. 

Hope this make sense, this one is not so easy to write up. Maybe by watching the tutorial you can get the jest of it all. Have fun and any questions let me know.
