January Scrapbook Class

This month I created clean and simple holiday pages.  The simplicity of my pages allow the girls to add more embellishments and bling.

Christmas 1

Christmas 3

Christmas 2

Highlights:  The Christmas tree was a die from Memory Box.  After it was cut out, I kept the stencil on it and added some light molding paste.  After that I carefully removed the stencil and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on it for the snowy, glittery affect on the tree.

Check out the great textured background behind the tree using the SU Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  I’m a big fan of My Favorite Things (MFT) products. The dies used are the Icicle Border, Winter Wreath, Banner Fishtails and December Memories.

I didn’t have time to post the December scrapbook class so I’m adding it to this post.

Thanksgiving 1

Thanksgiving 4

Thanksgiving 3

Stamps/Dies: MFT Autumn Wreath die and Thankful Leaves and matching dies

SU Ink: Early Espresso

Paper:  SU Cajun craze, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Old Olive

Candy Bar Sliders

With Halloween around the corner, what a great time to make these Candy Bar Slider treat holders.  This technique has been around for awhile with many variations. Following are quick and simple instructions that I used.

Cut your DSP (Designer Series Paper) to 2-3/4″ x 11″

Score at 5-3/8″ and 5-5/8″

Turn and score at 1/4″ inch on each side (11 inch side)

 

Where the score lines meet in the middle snip up to lines as shown. This will be the bottom of your holder.

Crease your score lines and assemble your box. Use either liquid glue (Tombow) or sticky strip on two of the side folds.

Based on the width of your ribbon, use a punch at the top front center of your box, I used the Little Labels Punch Pack.

Then line your punched hole with the back side of the box and punch again.

It should look like this

Take your candy bar and wrap your ribbon around it.

Slide it into the box.

Pull the ribbon through the punched holes.

Then tie your ribbon at the top, allowing you to push and pull the candy bar out.

You should be able to slide the candy bar in and out of the treat holder.

Decorate and embellish

This one is using Scallop Dotted Ribbon for the knot.

Quick Tip:  Use 12″x12″ paper for larger candy bars, just score 1/8″ on either side of the center point of the paper.

Supplies:
Stamp set: Toxic Treats
Ink: Versamark
Paper: My Digital Studio – Pick Your Poison
Accessories: Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Labels Collection Framelits, Little Labels Punch Pack, 1/2″Basic Black Scallop Dot Ribbon, 1/2″ Striped Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Black Embossing Powder and candy bars.
