{a flair for buttons} and The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to our blog hop. Today we are sharing projects made with The Cut Shoppe cut files and {a flair for buttons} flair.

Here is my layout.

Love life by Daniela Dobson

I used Borderlines cut file for the heart and the scalloped border. The heart is backed with the patterned paper called Hello Sunshine. Actually, both sides of that paper are used here. The words of “you are my sunshine” are on the black background. Didn’t know I had it, love it, and it was perfect for this layout.
I added words from Words to Live by in the right lower corner. I added a flair button for the “o”. Another flair button is by the photo with “hello you are awesome”.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge–Holiday Greetings }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – Holiday Greetings!

Our challenge starts today, November 20, and continues to the following Wednesday evening, November 26, at 10 PM.

Create a new project using  Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between November 20 - 26. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.

I seriously had a hard time trying to figure out what stamps and dies to use. I was a little overwhelmed. I cleaned my desk and laid out all the holiday stamps and dies I had. Bad idea. Way too many choices.

Seasons greetings by Daniela Dobson

I started by stamping white cardstock with Candy Cane Stripes. I wanted to use nontraditional colors.  Then I used my Cover-a-Card Large Dots to stamp on vellum using gold ink. I used clear embossing powder to set the ink. I added and layered several stars at the top so that they look like a banner. Scalloped Star, Small Solid Music Star, Music Star. 3D foam squares are perfect to give the stars some dimension. I die cut Season’s Greetings from the same cardstock color as the card base.

We have a warehouse sale starting on Friday.

That is all from me. Make sure you check out what the rest of our DT created.

I hope you play along.

{ Your Everyday Stamps }

My friend Ashley Harris designed some new stamps and asked me to make some projects using them. Here is what I created.

This first card combines several different stamps. I used watercolor crayons to color in the circles.

Thank you by Daniela Dobson

Here are two project life cards that I can use on future layouts.

PL cards by Daniela Dobson

For the layout, once again, I combined several different stamp sets. The circle outline is stamped with orange ink and then I added a solid turquoise stamped circle. The Journaling spots are stamped on white cardstock and cut out. I used them as layers behind the photo and the patterned paper.

Today was amazing  by Daniela Dobson

Here are the stamp sets I got to play with and use on my projects.

{ December 25 mini album }

I create projects for Emma’s Paperie every week. We have a ton of designer inspirations on Emma’s Paperie blog. Come and check it out.

I created this little mini album using Basic Grey Evergreen Collection.You can see a full list of supplies on the blog post HERE.

December 25 mini album by Daniela Dobson

This is the same album base I used for a different project back in 2012. It’s very easy to put together and it’s a cut file by Lori Whitlock. You will need a silhouette cameo for the album.

December 25 mini album inside by Daniela Dobson

I used Celebrating December - Memory Keepers Studio - October 2014 from Technique Tuesday for the inside pages.

December 25 mini album open by Daniela Dobson

The tags tuck into the pocket and you can add your journaling on the back. I repeat my design on all the tags changing out a few bits and pieces.

December 25 mini album tags by Daniela Dobson

I tie a ribbon around the album to keep it closed which can easily be removed to view the inside pages. You don’t even have to untie the bow. It just slips off and on.

Some other items I made for Emma’s Paperie and you can find a link for all the supplies for each card in the title.

Yummy by Daniela Dobson

Everything on here is from the kit. I added patterned paper from Good Cheer collection. The silhouette cuts are some of my own pieces I had laying around. I added washi tape, some enamel dots and sequins. For the color shine I used a polar grid template I made years ago. Heidi Swapp Mint Green color shine matches this collection perfectly. I trimmed my white cardstock about half an inch so that the patterned paper shows on the sides.
