Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Card Folio

Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Card Folio

Hello, Friends!  How about a little trip to the beach?  We can walk barefoot in the sand, search for shells and play in the waves all day!  Sound good?  While I might not be able to take you to a real beach, this Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Card Folio is almost as good as playing in the sun, surf and sand!

It’s impossible to feel gloomy in the presence of such vibrant colors and happy images.  This is a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base.  I’ve transformed it into a folio by adding a 1/2″ spine and some fun surprises inside.

Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Life is a Beach Card Folio Sun Kissed by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 2If you are intimidated at the thought of making a mini album, you might want to think about creating a card folio instead.  You can easily complete one in half a day, and for a fraction of the cost.  Limited storage?  Folios are perfect for that, too, as they take up so much less room.  Need a unique gift?  Folios are the perfect card/gift combo.  So, yeah…I’m pretty much addicted to making them!

Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Life is a Beach Card Folio Sun Kissed by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 3Rosettes make me think of beach umbrellas, so I had to make a few for this card using my Tim Holtz rosette dies.  Then I used Tim’s Sand and Sea Bigz Die to cut images from patterned paper as well.  The great thing about making your own paper embellishments is that they will always be a perfect color match!

Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Life is a Beach Card Folio Sun Kissed by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 4To add extra dimension, die cut some chipboard or cardboard to back your seahorse die.  This not only strengthens the die cut, but it really makes the image pop off the page.

Take a Peek Inside this Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Card Folio

The inside of a card folio is more fun than visiting the boardwalk at the beach!

This flap page was scored and folded to create a fun little pocket.  Fill the pocket with journal tags and an ephemera card.  You can also add extra photos here.

Flip the flap over, and what do you find?  This fun waterfall gives you loads of room for photos.

Use another ephemera card underneath to write down your favorite vacation memories, names, dates and places.

Add a mini folio to the pocket and you’ve got room for more photos and journaling.  The cover for this mini folio is the back side of one of the beautiful ephemera cards from the Sun Kissed collection.   The large ephemera card on the top half of the card is the perfect  spot to tell your story.

Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Life is a Beach Card Folio Sun Kissed by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 10

Decorate the inside with another image from the collection, and then fill the pocket with small ephemera cards and photos.   You could even make this folio as a family craft activity while on vacation.  There’s always a rainy day at the beach, and this would be such a fun way to take advantage of being together.

The great news is that Sun Kissed is now available for purchase!  Oh the paper pretties you can make with this glorious collection!

I hope I’ve shared some ideas, tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Heartfelt Creations July Alumni Hop: Seashell Shaker Card with Under the Sea

Hello, Friends!  Are you ready to hop?  Welcome to the July Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop! You should be coming here from Mary’s lovely blog. I’ll provide a complete hop list at the end of this post.  It’s full on summer here in North Carolina and the hot, humid days have my mind turning to the beach.  Oh, for a walk along the shore with the waves kissing my toes and the sand dotted with pretty shells.  Since I can’t be at the beach in real life, I decided to make this Seashell Shaker Card with the Gorgeous Under the Sea Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Photo 1

I’ve had my eye on this gorgeous collection since the day it released over a year ago.  Making a seashell shaker card with these bright corals and deep aquas is almost as good as taking a vacation!

Shake it Up!

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card Photo 2

Just for fun, I added a little hidden tag between the card front layers.  This is a quick and easy addition thanks to the cut apart page and my faithful Luggage and Tags Die.

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card Photo 3

Shaker cards are like a party on paper.  This seashell shaker card is filled with a combination of Prills, micro beads, seed beads,  and sequins.

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card Photo 4

I used the seashell die from Coral Reef Collage to cut my shell out of the Under the Sea paper collection.  Then I sponged  Abandoned Coral Distress Ink along the edges to heighten the pink tones.  Next, I used my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, mat and stylus to round out the shell body. Then I glued it to the card base. Finally, I scattered Prills and Seed Beads along the inner edge. A lucky hermit crab gets to live in this glammed up seashell!

Coral Sea Flowers with Enchanted Mums

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card Photo 5Making these coral reef flowers was a cinch!

  1. First, stamp the 2 smallest sizes of Enchanted Mums onto the coral dot paper using Abandoned Coral Distress Ink.
  2. Next, heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  3. Then, use sponge daubers to add a little Abandoned Coral to the centers and the tips of the flower petals.
  4. Now, die cut the flower layers.
  5. Then, shape and stack with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
  6. Finally, add hot glue to center and fill with seed beads.
What’s Inside This Seashell Shaker Card?

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card Photo 6

I turned this card into a gift by adding a few extras on the inside.

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card Photo 7

You can easily turn a card front into a gift wallet.  Just glue the image to the right hand side of a 4″ high x 11″ long strip of cardstock.  Score on the left and fold.

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Seashell Shaker Card Photo 8

Then cut down another card front image to serve as a pocket.  Tuck in some of the cute tags from the paper collection along with a gift card and easy as 1, 2, 3….you have a gift card wallet.

I used the scraps on my worktable to make a quick little tag.  These make the best bookmarks, and they also are a great way to brighten up a work cubicle!

Vintage Beach Babe Birthday Folio

Frilly and Funkie “You’re My Inspiration” Challenge: Vintage Beach Babe Birthday Folio

Hello, Friends!  Happy Hump Day!  It’s time for another great challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  This go round, Nancy is hosting the challenge and the theme is “You’re My Inspiration.”  For this fun challenge, I’ve created a Vintage Beach Babe Birthday Folio, but before I share it with you, here’s what Nancy has to say about the challenge:

Find any type of image or photo that inspires you and create a vintage or shabby chic project based on that image or photo (you don’t need to actually use it in your project). Please post the image on your blog along with your project, and tell us what it is you love about it.

Sound like fun?  I thought so, too!  So without further ado, let’s get the party started.

The Beach Is My Inspiration

I am a beach loving gal.  Everything about the beach inspires me: the sound of the waves, the wind whipping my hair, the wee birds skipping along in the sand, the pelicans skimming the waves, and the grains of sand that sparkle like flecks of gold under the bright sun.  I do my best thinking at the beach, and my best sleeping, too.  (Do you think there might be a connection?)  So I chose this gorgeous  digital collage image created by my dear friend, Ginny Nemchak as my inspiration photo.  This gal, perched on her over-sized beach ball, wearing a fabulous vintage bathing suit is who I want to be when I grow up.

Although this looks like a card, it’s really a folio.  I love to create cards that can double as gifts.  I have several birthdays coming up in my family this summer, and this Vintage Beach Babe Birthday Folio will make some birthday girl very happy.

Off to the Races Visits the Shore

Vintage Style Beach Babe Birthday Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 1

This Vintage Beach Babe Birthday Folio measures 5.75″ wide x 7.75″ tall.  I used Graphic 45 12×12 Off to the Races Patterns and Solids paper to create my layers.  These rich shades of blue and brown are perfect for a beach themed card.  A Tim Holtz Sophisticate Cabinet Card frames the focal image.  And here’s where I got a little creative inspiration.  I’ve always felt terrible about covering up the gorgeous graphics on the back of these Cabinet Cards.

So I didn’t.

Instead, I turned it into a flap. The kraft glassine bag has a hinge mechanism so it can fold down.  There’s a post card tucked into the envelope, but this leaves plenty of room to add a gift card.

I triple embossed this portion of the project: embossing folder, ink, embossing powder, paint then heat embossing again.  It created a surface that really resembles beach sand.

How to Make  Flap Opening for your Vintage Beach Babe Birthday Folio
  1. First, insert your chosen image inside the frame.  I had to add a little washi tape to the top and bottom of this image to make it fit perfectly.  Easy fix!
  2. Then, use a craft knife to gently separate the cabinet card front and back at the seam on the left hand side.
  3. Next, cut a 1.75″ strip of paper the same height as the cabinet card.
  4. Now, fold the paper in half to form a hinge.
  5. Glue one half inside the opened seam.  You will also need to add glue to the front of the hinge so that you can seal the cabinet card up again.
  6. Next, create the right hand side of your flap.  Measure it so that it is exactly the same width and height of the cabinet card you are using.  I cropped the corners on my card so that they would match the corners on the cabinet card.
  7. Now, Decorate the inside of this front flap.
  8. Then, glue the other half of the hinge to the back side of this layer.
  9. Finally, glue the whole mechanism onto your prepared card base.
  10. Hold the cabinet card flap closed with a little hinge clasp.

I stamped and inked up a little birthday greeting to tuck behind my chipboard sand dollar.  Glue just the bottom edge of the sand dollar to the card base, and you’ve got a pocket!  Then mat another fabulous beach babe onto designer paper, and tuck both behind the sand dollar.  I just love interactive elements on cards, don’t you?

Take a Look Inside

I packed the inside of this Vintage Beach Babe Birthday Folio with all kinds of fun goodies.

The top half of the folio holds a little accordion fold photo album.

And what’s in that pocket on the bottom?

How about another vintage beach babe all decked out on a tag, and a little sweet treat?

What’s Your Inspiration?

Now it’s your turn to play along and let us know what inspires YOU.  You have until midnight EDT on Tuesday, June 20th to create a vintage or shabby chic project inspired by a photo.  Link your project up on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.

The designers will choose their top 4 favorite projects from all those submitted.  Our top favorite will be invited to serve as a Guest Designer on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  The next 3 will receive badges to display proudly on their own blogs.  And everyone who enters and follows the rules of the challenge will be entered into the draw to receive a $25 shopping spree at the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

You can find all the challenge guidelines HERE.

I can’t wait to see what you make!

I hope I’ve shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Frilly Funkie By the Sea

Frilly Funkie By the Sea Challenge

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for another challenge over on the Frilly & Funkie Blog, and this go round, I get to be the hostess.  Hooray!  Since I’ve not had time to take a real vacation this year, I keep taking little virtual getaways by creating beach themed projects.  It’s like the old long distance commercials from so many years ago: it’s the next best thing to being there!  So I’ve created this By the Sea Altered ATC box that is loaded with vintage goodness and a beachy color palette.  But before I share it with you, here’s the details on this By the Sea Challenge:

It’s summertime, and our minds turn toward the shore where we find sparkling sands, delicate shells and refreshing breezes.  Let’s take a virtual beach trip by creating any kind of vintage or shabby chic project that features a nautical or beach theme and color palette.

By the Sea with Prima French Riviera and Graphic 45

By the Sea Altered Graphic 45 ATC Book Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie By the Sea Challenge, Product by Prima French Riviera and Graphic 45 Photo 2Ooh la la!  I love these beachy blues!  The box base is a Graphic 45 ATC Box.  After texturing the Prima French Riviera papers with a woodgrain embossing folder, I glued them onto the sides of the box.  Next, I coated them with Distress Vintage Vintage Collage Medium and smudged them with Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Paint.  All the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I distressed a Graphic 45 Staples Shabby Chic Door Plate to add to the front of the box.  And, you’ll see one of the Graphic 45 Ornate Keys as well. Then I tied all those shades of blue together with some gorgeous Petaloo Penny Lane flowers.

By the Sea Altered Graphic 45 ATC Book Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie By the Sea Challenge, Product by Prima French Riviera and Graphic 45 Photo 3I added a bunch of pretty charms  from the Funkie Junkie Boutique to custom dyed seam binding ribbon.  You can get a good look at the texture in this photo.

By the Sea Altered Graphic 45 ATC Book Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie By the Sea Challenge, Product by Prima French Riviera and Graphic 45 Photo 6I used more of the woodgrain paper inside the box along with chipboard and ephemera pieces from the collection.

By the Sea Altered Graphic 45 ATC Book Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie By the Sea Challenge, Product by Prima French Riviera and Graphic 45 Photo 10There is an ATC tag mini album tucked behind the focal image on the right.  The back of each tag has a flip out photo mount, so you could store 3 photos on each tag, and add one larger photo tot he back of the box, if desired.

By the Sea on YouTube

Rather than load a ton of pictures into the post, I’ve prepared a very short, 2 minute YouTube video so you can see all the fun details.  I hope you enjoy!

I hope you’ll join in on this fun challenge by  linking up your own By the Sea themed vintage or shabby chic project over at the Frilly & Funkie BLOG.  The design team will ask the designer of their favorite project to take a Guest Designer spot on the Frilly & Funkie Blog.  Three other designers will be awarded badges to display on their blogs and everyone who follows the challenge guidelines will be entered into a draw for a $25 shopping spree at the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

To get inspired, why not hop on over to the Frilly Funkie BLOG to see what the rest of the Frilly team have prepared for you.  And next week, the Funkie side of the team will share their take on the theme as well.

You have until midnight on Tuesday, August 9th to play along.  I can’t wait to see what you make!

Thanks for stopping by!

Nautical Rose Tutorial

Heartfelt Creations July Alumni Blog Hop: Nautical Rose Tutorial & Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the July 2016 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop!  I’m the first stop on the hop this month.  From here you will go to Vicki’s lovely blog.  Today I’m sharing a Nautical Rose Tutorial using the Botanical Rose stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.  I’ve paired it up with gorgeous satin ribbon and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Nautical RoseTutorial Card by Kathy Clement for Heartfelt Creations July 2016 Alumni Hop product by Really Reasonable Ribbon and Heartfelt Creations Photo 1I just love these sagey greens.  We have a beach near us where the water looks just like this on a sunny day!

Nautical Rose Tutorial Card by Kathy Clement for Heartfelt Creations July 2016 Alumni Hop product by Really Reasonable Ribbon and Heartfelt Creations Photo 2I just love this Botanical Rose die, and it works great as a Nautical Rose, doesn’t it?  To give it a vintage look, I painted it with Ranger Clear Rock Candy Distress Paint after it was all put together.  The paint reacts slightly with the Distress Inks I used on the petals and the end result is totally yummy!

Nautical Rose Tutorial Card by Kathy Clement for Heartfelt Creations July 2016 Alumni Hop product by Really Reasonable Ribbon and Heartfelt Creations Photo 3I often use the Heartfelt Designer paper as the base for my stamped flowers.  Most of the coloring is all done for you this way, and the paper is the perfect weight for shaping.

Nautical Rose Tutorial Card by Kathy Clement for Heartfelt Creations July 2016 Alumni Hop product by Really Reasonable Ribbon and Heartfelt Creations Photo 4This gorgeous sage green satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect color match for these papers.  It has a lovely soft shimmer that adds extra texture to this card.  Adding some Natural Burlap String makes for a fuller bow cluster, which I love!  I also used Ivory Burlap Woven Ribbon as a header on the card.  Simply separate the strands with your fingers to add even more yummy texture to your card.http://allidoisstamp.blogspot.com/search/label/Heartfelt%20Creations

Graphic 45 Sea Dreams Tag

Graphic 45 Children’s Hour: Sea Dreams Tag with Pocket

Hello G45’er!  I’m up on the G45 blog today with this super cute, quick and easy  Sea Dreams Tag.

Sea Dreams Tag, Children's Hour, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 1I have to say, I love this Sea Dreams tag for the memories it brings to mind.  That little girl holding the sea shell to her ear makes me think of our oldest daughter when she was a girl.  We have spent many a happy hour combing the beach together, finding treasures along the way.  Now I get to have the same kind of fun by the sea with our three granddaughters.  What joy!

Sea Dreams Tag, Children's Hour, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 2This Sea Dreams tag started with a Graphic 45 Staples Regular Ivory tag.  I traced around the tag onto the 8×8 July montage paper.  Then I punched a 1/2″ hole for the grommet and glued it down.  The edges were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Paint.   Lots of inky spattering and sponging ensued!  Then I added some crisp white detail with a laser cut doily from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

By the Sea Tag, Children's Hour, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 3The post card from the 12×12 collective page was trimmed out, inked and spritzed.  Then I fussy cut the little girl image from an ephemera card and secured her to the tag with foam spacers.  I fussy cut flowers from the 12×12 montage and clustered them around her and added a button and some custom dyed seam binding ribbon.

By the Sea Tag, Children's Hour, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 4I backed the postcard with some waste corrugate, then used foam dimensionals around the edges so that I could slip a little tag behind.  Why?  I don’t know…because it is fun, and I love hidden pockets and interactive elements on a project, I guess!  You can just see the shaped edge of the tag peeking out from behind the post card tag.

It’s All About the Details!

By the Sea Tag, Children's Hour, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 5Here’s another look at the fun details.  All these shells were found on our beautiful North Carolina coast. To give my tag a real beachy feel, I sprinkled real beach sand on top of Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive, then tapped off the excess.  I also tapped my metal fish charm with both Picket Fence and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Paint.  It’s all about the details!

Fussy Cutting Tip

By the Sea Tag, Children's Hour, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 6And here’s a handy tip for all you fussy cutters out there.  Tiny images like the little girl and the flowers can be very hard to ink.  But I hate raw edges, so ink I must!  My secret is to flip the image upside down on my craft mat, and then very gently, while it is laying flat, I sponge all around the perimeter.  Because I hold both the image and my sponge flat, the raw edges get covered up, but the image is not spoiled.  Try it next time you need to ink up something tiny.

By the Sea Tag, Children's Hour, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 8 jpgHere’s a look at the tag behind the scenes of this Sea Dreams tag.  You could easily mount a small photo, or write a note on the back.  I have this tag on my desk right now, and it makes me smile every time I look at it!

I hope I shared some ideas here that you’ll be able to incorporate in your own crafting adventures.  A simple tag like this beauty is a great way to capture a memory, isn’t it?

Thanks for stopping by.  Now, go get your craft on!

Cheerio,

kathy

By the Sea Beach Rules House Shrine for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts

Hello, Friends!  I don’t know about you, but my soul has been longing for the sea.  Summer is such a busy time around here with visits from dear friends, family birthdays and lots of deadlines for work.  There’s no time to escape to the coast, unless I do it on paper!  Luckily for me, I had a wonderful little Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts House Shrine Box to work with, and I immediately thought “beach cottage!”  I pulled out my Graphic 45 By the Sea papers and went to work building this darling little Beach Rules House Shrine to share with you today.
