DIY Gift Book Box with Waterfall Photo Album

Today we made a gift for our super Mail lady, she is very patient with us and never complains when we haul out 50 or 60 packages for her to somehow cram in her car. This is just a little gift box that we will be using to place her gift certificate in, and then she can use the box later for her photos as it has a waterfall photo album inside.

Below are the measurements, hope you enjoy.

YouTube Video Tutorial:

1 sheet of card stock 12x8 inches, on the 12" side score at 1/4", 4 7/8" 7 1/8", 11 3/4". Turn one turn and score on the 8" side at 1" and 7 1/2"

Fold and burnish all score lines

Cut up on center score lines just to the vertical score line as shown in the video. Wedge out just a little on both.

Cut off small boxes on the ends at and angle as you will not need these. This is where the score lines create the box.

Glue down the 1/4" edges and fold up center piece and glue inside. This is not necessary but does add strength to the box.

Do the same on top to keep from having raw edges.

Cut 2 pieces of cardstock at 6x7 inches, on the long side score at 1/2", 3", 4" 6 1/2" turn and score at 1" and 5". Do this same thing on the other piece, this creates your boxes for the inside. Cut your squares at the corners off as you did on the large piece. Fold down and glue the 1/2" pieces down to keep from having raw edges. Glue the sides together forming your boxes.

For the cascading mini album you will need a piece of paper cut at 3x9 3/4" score at 4 3/4" and 5" on the long side. Cut 8 pieces of paper at 2 3/4x2 3/4" to create the cascade, score at 1/4" on all pieces on just one side. mat as you wish and assemble as shown in the video.

Decorate and you are finished.

DIY Christmas Fireplace Finish - Decorating

Our beautiful fireplace is finished. This is not a hard project at all, just  use your imagination and decorate to make this look realistic. Below are all the measurements. Watch the video to see just how easy everything comes together. Enjoy and please share your finished projects in our members room.

I made my fireplace using black medium weight chipboard. The mini lights I used I purchased from Amazon I think I got 6 sets for around $10. The little battery operated tea lights I got from Amazon as well, I purchase the packs of 24 and they are around $10 this last me a long time. The punch I used for the garland was an old Martha Stewart punch, can't remember where I got it but here is a link to one just like it. . As for the paper I used the same as I did on our lantern, the beautiful Graphic 45 Winter Wonderland.

To shop all our products just click here: 

Front and Back 2 pieces cut at 6x5 1/2"
Top and Bottom 2 pieces cut at 6x2"
Sides 2 pieces cut at 5 1/2x 2"

Cut the opening in the front peice

Hearth is 3x7"
Mantle is 2 1/2x7"

Bottom piece of the front to go across opening is 1/2x6"

Mats are cut at 5 3/4x5 1/4" front and back
Mats for sides 5 1/4x1 7/8"

This is all the measurements not just a matter of decorating as you like, and you have a beautiful home decor fireplace. And remember you can change the sizes to make this as big or as small as you wish. 

Enjoy, E

Winter Lantern Tutorial

We wanted a lantern like the one Tim Holtz has in his new die collection, but after ordering the die and waiting for a month we still have not received it. Soooooo we decided to make the template and create one of our own. We wanted to take you along with us and hope that you will see just how easy it is and create one for yourself. This video is two parts the first is the creating and the second is the decorating.

Enjoy, E

Tutorial Part 1:
Tutorial Part 2:

Here are the measurements, quick and easy.

4 pieces of chipboard cut at 4"x5", this is the sides
On one of the pieces you need to cut out an opening. I measured in from each side 1/2" and down from the top and up from the bottom 3/4' and cut this part out.

4 pieces of chipboard cut at 2"x4" this is going to be your top/roof pieces. To get the slant on the roof measure in 1" from each side of the 4" length and mark. Join this mark with the bottom corner point and cut this part off creating somewhat of a triangle. 

Create some construction pieces. I use just scrap paper that is 1" wide and it can be as long as you want, various lengths is good. I used black as that is the color chipboard I used, but you can use any color, just keep in mind parts of these will show. Take your strips and score at 1/2" down the long way. Put scar tape on each side of the score line just as close to the score mark as you can. These you will use to construct/join your panels/chipboard. They need to be the same length as the piece you are joining, then you need to cut the ends at a slant, cutting from open side to closed side point.

See the video tutorial on joining these together.

The bottom is cut at 4"x4". You will need construction strips all around this to attach to the bottom of the house. See video tutorial on how to attach.

Mats for sides are cut at 3 3/4x 4 3/4", use the same rule as above to cut the opening in one of these mats for the front.
Mats for top are cut at 1 7/8"x3 7/8", use the same rule as above to cut these at an angle for the top pieces.

I did cover the inside if you cover just cut 3 pieces at 3 7/8"x4 7/8" and place on the walls, for the bottom cut at 3 7/8"x3 7/8"

Pierce a tiny holt on each side roof panel to place a wire through for the handle. 

You are finished! Just to decorate and that is it. 

Any questions let me know. Hope this helps.

All products used are listed below the video, and are either in our store or we have found a place you can purchase them. 

Thanks E

4 Twist Card Photo Display

This is a quick and easy project but looks so beautiful on a table displaying your favorite photos. Give to a friend as a birthday card with her favorite photos. The possibilities are endless.

Video Tutorial:
Members Room:

Card Base 7 1/2x7 1/2 inches
Card Base mat: 7 1/4x7 1/4 inches

Photo twist element: 4 pieces 6 1/4x3 1/8 inches
Score all 4 pieces at 3 1/8 inch on the long side
Then take one of the squares and make a score line from center score line to outside point, creating a triangle. Score 2 the same way from score line to point and then score the other two from point to triangle exactly opposite the first two. So you should have two twist pieces that go to the lest and two that go to the right. 

Photo display mats:
Cut 4 pieces of solid cardstock 3 1/8x3 1/8"
Cut 4 pieces decorative paper at 2 7/8x2 7/8 inches
Glue these together.

Assemble these pieces on to p of the triangles as shown in the video.

Mark center of base across and down then mark out from center line 1/8 inch on both sides. This will help you attach the photo twist pieces in a straight line.  

Glue photo displays in between the lines you drew making sure the pop up part when opened faces out to the corner point. 

Back mat is cut at 7 1/4x7 1/4"

Make share with us and enjoy!

Explosion Pop Up Card

Today we are creating a fun and easy explosion card with a cake pop up on the inside. This is for my Granddaughter, I think she will like the surprise. I will give you all the measurements here but there are parts that I will just have to instruct you to watch the video on, because some is to hard to explain unless you are looking at what I am doing.

Full video tutorial:

All products came from our store and are listed with links below the video.

Lets Begin

Start off with a piece of cardstock that is 6"x12", on the 12" side you want to score at 5", 10 1/8",
10 1/4", 10 3/8" and 11 1/4". Fold and burnish your score lines.

Next a piece of white cardstock for the center of the card, this is the one you will put your sentiment on. 4"x9 1/2". On the 9 1/2" side score at 4 3/4".

Explosion part, you will need two thin pieces of paper, the thinner the better the card will fold. Cut these at 6"x10", score in the center at 5". Now to do your folds on these pieces for the explosion part you will need to watch the video, but I can tell you where to score or fold. On the long side of the triangle you will score at 2", 3", 4", 5". Then you will accordion fold these.

For the cake part I am inserting a photo that will help with the measurements, but again watching the video will help too.

On the folded end start on the sides and measure in 3/4" and make a mark. From those two marks come up with a line 1", then connect those lines as shown in the photo. Now from that line you just made come in 1/4" from both sides and make a mark, again draw a line up from those two marks 1" long, then connect the line. Do the same for the third tier come in 1/4" from either side and make a mark then draw a 1" line up and connect. You have just made a three tier cake. 
Now for the cutting of these pieces you will need to check out the video here:

The mat pieces for the cake are cut at 2 1/4"x3/4" - 1 3/4"x3/4" - 1 1/4"x3/4"

Outside mats are cut at 6 3/4"x4 3/4" and 5 1/2"x4 1/2"

Then decorate as desired.

I hope you enjoy this it comes together really quickly even though it looks complicated.

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. 

The collection:

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:
Part two of the video tutorial:

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. 


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


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


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:


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.
