What birthday card to make for that soccer-loving friend or relative? How about a soccer-themed card, decorated with a custom-printed birthday wish, a Johan Cruijff tag and a wooden letter ‘K’ for his first name. With Stickles, of course.
This time the video contains a super short overview. More details in the pictures below 🙂
So, I’ve got a lot of stickers – through no fault of my own mind you 🙂 They’re usually added complimentary to a paper collection or some such. Or they come so incredibly cheap that I simply cannot help myself 😳
I find that although I like the idea of them, I don’t use very many of them. I mean, what do you do with those flat sticky things that in most cases turn out not to be even that adhesive in the long run.
Since I had an especially large number of stickers to go with my All is Bright paper collection (by My Mind’s Eye), I decided they should be used up – or at least 75% of them anyway.
So, here are some ideas for those of you who, like me, don’t know what to do with their darned stickers. 🙂
Tea bags are – in my experience – a fun gift to send with a Welcome Home card. This week I’m sharing my idea to send two, by way of what I’ve since dubbed a swing bag card: a double card with a swinging bag hanging from its ‘nook’ fold 🙂
The very sturdy double-sided design paper I used was perfect to use as is, with no cardstock at all. The sheet is called Rooster Row and it’s from 49 and Market’s latest collection, Cottage Life.
I also created a little stand to prevent the card from being pulled down by the weight of the suspended tea pouch.
All in all a pretty simple card, yet with an original design element. Let me know what you think in the comment section below! And of course, like & share! ??
In my last post I shared an XXL album with you, created with Kaisercraft’s Salty Kisses paper collection. As is most often the case, I had some papers left over. So I created a lovely summer-themed birthday card, combining a Kaisercraft sheet with the awesome die-cuts of Studiolight’s Summer at the Beach collection and a fun sentiment stamp by Crealies.
And by the way, cards also make great mini album page inserts! So there’s a bonus idea for you 😉
Ranger’s Sticky Embossing Powder is great for adding very precise glittering or foiling, for instance on a very detailed and delicate (stamped) picture or a (stamped) sentiment. In this week’s (free!) video tutorial I’m showing you how it works – and sharing a very important tip that will help you avoid the mistake I made…! 😉
The card in the video is the Twist & Pop card I shared some blog posts ago in a tutorial of its own, so check that out if you’d like to create one yourself.
Special occasions require special cards, and with this interactive wallet card you can go many directions. To give you some examples, my first card of this design had an Encouragement theme, the second version commemorated the first year since my father’s passing.
This week I’m sharing a third way you can use this card: as a mini album card, to send (or give in person) someone some pictures of dearly remembered moments you shared with them! Which is perfect for someone who really already has everything they ever wanted – I mean do you really need to give them more ‘stuff’? I’m convinced that memories in the form of pictures – nicely done up – will always be much appreciated, and also add that extra personal touch to your gifts.
This design offers room for 6-8 pictures and of course a personal message.
So, hope to have inspired you, let me know what you think in the comments! 🙂
A lady asked me to create a card incorporating a specific sentiment and with some meditative overtones. I immediately thought of the Serenity paper collection by Bo Bunny, which would be perfect with its Asian-themed graphics and choice of many lovely colors.
For my previous Serenity teaboxprojects I had used the reds, teals and blacks, but this time I chose the soft greens and whites. I printed the requested sentiment in a dark green color onto a piece of design paper, then used a circle die (by Crealies) to cut a nicely rounded label.

Today I’m sharing with you another Low Budget Tip, in other words how to create wonderful projects and presents that won’t cause a significant dent into your household budget. 🙂
There’s more where this came from by the way, check out all posts on this blog tagged Low budget!
This week’s tip is to create a picture card. For this type of card you won’t need much design paper for on the front the focus will be a picture you took (any occasion possible!), and on the back you will simply use cardstock or even printer paper of a different color than your base card.
You can keep the embellishments to a minimum by only using some glitter glue to trace around the picture and/or the journalling spot on the back, or you can add some simple decorations as I have, which still won’t have to cost a lot – especially if you’d die-cut the flowers and leaves.
So I hope you’ll enjoy this tip, let me know if you’d like to see more!

As always I had some beautiful papers left over from my previous (large) project, the Explosion Boxed Mini Album I shared with you last week. And as usually I could not bring myself to get rid of them, even though most of them were strips and scraps. So, here’s the two cards I managed to force them into 🙂 – one of them only one-sided for by that time I literally had no more scraps left.
