Family Wall Hanging by Billie St Clair

Hi there!
Billie here with a family wall hanging for the Scrapbook Pal Design Team. 

I created this project using chipboard, Spellbinders Label Four die set, Basic Grey papers, twine, Walnut Stain Distress Ink, etc.  The letters and numbers were part of the BG paper collection.  The flourishes are an old Spellbinders die, which I inked with Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist

A Happy Hello by Steph Ackerman

Good morning, Steph here today with a bright and fun new card. It's summer and I love using lots of bright, happy colors in the cards I mail during the summer.  I also love to mix my Cricut Cartridges and Spellbinders dies for some fun effects.

I used the Just Because Cartridge which is full of assorted shaped cards. 

To create all the elements of this card, use the 8th button on the 4th row.
To create the card base, cut green cardstock at 7 1/2".  This results in a 4 1/2" x 7 1/2" card. 
Using the Scor-Pal, score and then fold on the score lines.
To create the next layers -
Cut top most card layer (Fruity paper) use shift + card at 7 1/2".  Ink edges with brown ink.
Cut the next layer (black cardstock) using shift + card at 7 3/4".
Cut the next layer (dotted paper) using shift + card at 8".  Ink edges with brown ink.

Assemble the 3 layers together and tie a white ribbon around the center.  Then add some coordinating twine to the knot.

Using Spellbinders dies, die cut 3 layers from white cardstock, red pattern paper, and black cardstock to create the base for the sentiment.    Adhere the layers together and add to the card with foam adhesives.  This creates some nice additional dimension to the card.

Stamp the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock and cut the sentiment apart.  This is a great way to use a longer sentiment that may be too big for a card. Ink the edges of each piece and adhere to black cardstock.
Add the sentiment to the die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today.

4) Cut a rectangle measuring 3 3/4 x 7 1/4. Score lines at 2”, 3 1/2”, 5 1/2”, and 7”. Crease at folds so you have a “box”. Cover top and front side of box with patterned paper. Die cut opening for “box” top.

From My Kitchen To Yours by Billie St Clair

 Hi Blogger Friends!
Billie here with a project for the Scrapbook Pal Design Team. 
Sadly, dinner is one of those things in my household that I don’t really think about until it’s time to cook.  That doesn’t mean my family goes hungry or that we don’t have meals on the table.  It just means I get a lot of “what’s for dinner” questions!  So, I’ve created a weekly menu board to {hopefully} keep from having to figure out last-minute meals, cut back on the grocery budget and keep my family from having to ask “what’s for dinner”!  It’s a win/win for everyone!  :-)
I have had this frame hanging around for a while, so it seemed the perfect candidate for our menu board. 
The paper I used is from The Paper Studio and is called Sugar & Spice.  It’s a super cute stack with embossing and glitter on most pages!! 
I cut the recipe cards with tabs on my Cricut in white paper, which my oldest daughter inked with Vintage Photo, while I cut the matching tabs in some of the more solid papers in the stack.  I stamped the days of the week from an old Close To My Heart stamp set.  After everything was inked and glued together, I laminated my cards with my YourStory machine.  My intention is to write on my recipe cards with a dry erase marker so I can reuse my inserts. 
I covered a binder clip with cut heart print, glittery paper, which was also included in the stack.  I created the note pad with some regular copy paper and added a piece of chipboard on the back side to hold it in place.
How CUTE is that apron?!  I just adore it!!
