Bo Bunny Mini Album and other fall projects

I am super excited.  Heartfelt Creations has asked me to put some videos together.  And if that wasn't enough they gave me this really cute and fun collection to work with.  I LOVE Bo Bunny. 

Here is the video to see up close everything I did.

Here are some photos of each project

First is the layout with room for 7 photos or journaling.
These are some up close photos of the tags, flowers, brads, stickers and ribbon. (oh so much I loved about this collection!)

Next up is the Mini Album. 
This was my most favorite.  It was so fun to put together.  Can't wait to get some photos in it!
Cards and tags (very simple)

This is my Lantern that I bought at Swiss Days a couple of weeks ago!
Check out Bo Bunny and this fun Apple cider Collection.

Wedding cards

This is card that started it all. 
I used a PNG File from Echo Park and opened in the Silhouette (see the Video in the last post). Next I used some scrap paper form my "left over" box.  It is a z-fold card (I will explain below).

I did another card the same way using another PNG file as a print and cut. Same z-fold.

And here is my wedding card.  I made up a bunch of them because I really needed a bunch of these!
Here is how to make this fun card.  You will need some black and white printed paper, card stock, blank ink, a scor-pal (or a trimmer with a scor-blade) and a tag, sticker or PNG.
Trim your black and white printed paper as follows
Inside:  4x 5 1/4
Outside: 4 x 2 1/4
middle: 4x 2 3/4
If you are using a PNG file print it out either in Microsoft word, photo shop or the Silhouette Studio.
You will also need a piece of black card stock to frame the picture.
Next cut a piece of white card stock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score the card at  2 1/2 and 5 1/2.
fold it at the score lines in a z-fold.
Ink the edges of the black and white paper.  Assemble the card as shown.  Glue the tag so the left hand side is glued to the folded front piece and not attached to the back ground.
(I hope these instructions are clear as mud)
Are you ready?  Lets go make some cards!

Enjoy Life Card and Video

The next card we are going to look at this week is Enjoy Life
This card was made using a PNG file from "This & That"
I love using digital files because they have a lot of dimension without all the bulk.   (After making the videos, I realized that this kit was not from EP but I purchased it from My Memories) To purchase this kit click here.
I created this card 2 different ways.  First I used Microsoft Word:
Next (and my favorite way of course) was using the Cameo and Silhouette Software:
So I am new to YouTube and making videos.  This video got cut off at the end and is missing the printing instructions.  I will post the instructions or you can email me.
Enjoy these two new videos and let me know what you think.

It happened,  actually its been something that I needed to do for a while, I have just been putting it off. Last week I went to my card box to find a wedding card and it was empty! 

To solve the issue I spent all day Saturday making cards.  It was actually a great way to relax and I got a lot done.

I decided to share a few of the cards I made this week  AND I even put a couple of tutorials together.  Maybe, if your box is like mine was, you will get the itch to make some cards also.

This "be happy" owl card was inspired by a card I saw on Pintrest.  I used my Cameo to cut out all the pieces.

(sorry the picture is so awful on this card, the scanner just wouldn't work with the big Rosette)
To make this card
1. cut a piece of white card stock 5.25 x 4
2. cut 7 Strips of printed paper 1" wide.
3.  glue 6 of the strips of paper at an angle onto the white card stock.  Turn the card stock over and trim around the edges.
4. Glue the last strip of printed paper across the bottom
5. cut a strip of colored card stock 1" x 5.25".  Use a border punch to create the scalloped edge. Glue across the bottom
5. Glue the card stock to the front of a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card
7. Make a Rosette with a 12"x 1" strip of printed paper
8. punch out a scalloped circle and a smaller circle and glue to the Rosette. Finish with a button
9. Attach the Rosette with a strong glue to the front of the card.
This card is so pretty and would be well received but due to the bulk it can not be mailed in a regular envelope.
Keep checking all this week as I post new cards and tutorials.  (I am even working on some videos)
