Lemon Zest Ensemble!

Add some sunshine to someone’s life with a little lemony treat! In this tutorial, you will create your own lemon pattern cardstock to make a bright birthday card, a lemon candy treat in a popcorn box, and a card with a lemon tea bag tucked in a pocket. You will also make a mini treat bag with a sliding insert that reveals a lemon herbal tea bag. You can’t help but smile while making these bright and cheery projects.

 

 

Naturally Eclectic Card Box Set!

When you need a gift in a hurry, you’ll be able to whip up these cards using the gorgeous Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. Who wouldn’t love a set of four handmade cards and envelopes in a cute box made with the Envelope Punch Board?!  Make up several sets and you’ll always have a gift handy for a special occasion.

 

 

Time for a Coffee Break!  

Do you know someone you don’t get to see very often because they’re so busy? With all the hustle-bustle going on in the world today, this Coffee Break set is the perfect gift to take to that person, and sit down with them for a chat. The k-cup holder is a cinch to put together – it could even stand on its own. But adding the other little coffee gift along with that matching card is sure to please and relax even the busiest friend. So, it’s time to enjoy – it’s “Time for a Coffee Break”.

 

 

Upcycled Gift Boxes!

You may throw away or recycle cereal, macaroni, or cracker boxes, but you can turn them into beautiful gift boxes for that next special occasion. See how to use Designer Series Paper and other stamping supplies to turn these plain boxes into gift wrap that is almost as impressive as the gift you are giving. You will learn how to wrap two different size boxes in your favorite patterned paper.

 

 

Seasons Coasters!

Stamped coasters are so simple and inexpensive to make! With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s time to think about special people in your life you want to create a gift for.  In fact, these stamped coasters would make great gifts for anyone, any time of year!

 

 

 

August Bonus Project!

To get the instructions for this project, just subscribe to one of our 3, 6, or 12 month packages that include the month of August!

 

Graceful Garden Ensemble!

Create a pocket full of pretty cards that feature fun Watercolor Pencil techniques.  One of the techniques featured in this tutorial demonstrates how to use one pencil to get the shading and coloring of two or three colors, but your favorite might be the “Cheater’s Reflection” technique.  It is so easy and lends such a nice focal point for any card!  Besides the fun pencil techniques, you’ll also learn how to make your own coordinating dimensional embellishments!  If you decide to make this lovely ensemble to give to someone special, you’ll appreciate that there’s a tutorial for a pretty and simple pocket holder for the four cards.
