Fresh Prints final day

My two final projects in the Fresh prints series. The first a tag topper box with Baked Brown Sugar ruffled ribbon. The second a small bag, clasped together with hidden magnets. I made the bag using this picture, I didn't realise there was a  template until I came to do the link for this post, so I have made mine slightly bigger.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects as much as I enjoyed making them.

A scrapbook page, not posted one of these for a while.

I thought I would give you a little break from the Fresh Prints and insert a scrapbook page, I have been neglecting this area of my crafting for some time. So much to catch up on!!

This is my first foray in to the world of washi tape and despite my reservations about the product, I am happy with the results. I have had the tape for ages but wasn't really sure how to use it. I am not one for using it with torn edges or for sticking things on with it. I have seen others use it to great effect this way but it just wasn't for me. I covered some card with the tape and used it to cut shapes from, (hearts in this case) to make the banner. The triple layer heart tucked in to the "Selfie" pocket at the bottom of the page has journalling on the back.

Fresh prints day 6


 Another bag made with the We R Memory Keepers bag maker. What did I do before these things were on the market? Well, actually, the same as I am doing now, it just took a little longer.
Here is a card I made for my Sister in laws birthday. I am really loving the Simple Stems and Hardwood stamps.

Fresh Prints day 5


 Today's offerings. Love that Real Red wavy design! I created a simple box and then  added the tag topper punch as the flap fastener. I really like the red button to close the flap, a bit fiddly to keep closing it if you were using it to store something in rather than as a gift box.

Another box using the We R Memory Keepers box maker.

Fresh Prints day 4

Whilst not technically a Fresh Print, it is within the same colour combination - Coastal Cabana. I have seen this technique all over the net and wanted to give it a try. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet.

Another gift bag, this time using the Hexagon Hive and Starburst thinlet dies, Simple Stems (layered) and Memorable moments stamp sets.

Fresh Prints day 3


 This project was made using the We R Memory Keepers box maker.
The colour for the main box and the dotty DSP is Coastal Cabana, with Fresh Prints DSP as the accent square. All topped of with the Starburst Framelit die, flowers from my stash and some leaves from the Stippled Blossoms stamps set.
All card stock and DSP from Stampin' Up!
The finished box size is 4" x 4".

Fresh Prints DSP Stack day 2

This card is in a clean and simple style with plenty of white space which I love. Just a small strip of DSP layered on white and again on Real Red card stock that has been cut using the Finishing Touches Edgelits. The sentiment is an old one but useful for all sorts of occasions. Just above which I have adhered one of the blooms from the Simple Stems stamp set. I stamped it first on white card and then cut it out, then I stamped it again and just cut out the centre petals. These where then layered on the first image using raised sticky squares. I am really pleased with how it turned out, sometimes I start of with the idea of lots of white space and then get carried away and fill it up .


Here is a close up of the layered bloom.















A useful bag, as all of my daughter's friends are turning 18 this year. I added the Baked Brown Sugar ruffled ribbon to my banner die cut for some extra interest. Then I simply topped it off a sentiment from the Memorable Moments stamp set.

All items used are from Stampin' Up! With the exception of the scalloped oval die, which is from Spellbinders.
