Wedding Scrapbook Page

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  Hundreds (if not thousands) are taken of the lovely bride & groom, the amazing venue, the beautiful flowers, & more! So of course, you end up with enough photos to fill an entire album. This requires a lot of wedding scrapbook pages, which means you need a lot of ideas! If you're stuck & need some inspiration, check out the gorgeous Stamperia-You and Me, and Mintay-Yes I Do collection available at The Rubber Buggy.  This together-forever wedding scrapbook page will have you swooning over their special day with these gorgeous collections that have die cuts and pages of romantic, elegant and heartfelt details — see for yourself!

So I show up and take hundred of photos and go back to my laptop to edit through Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.  I even will add a decorative overlay of sparkles, etc. for that added touch of artistic and modern photo.

The easiest choice is to use the bride and groom's chosen wedding colors. Not only will this make your paper choices simple, but it's a great way to remember the wedding. These two beautiful paper collections are dedicated to weddings and ceremonies and are the perfect sets for adding elegant embellishments bridal dresses, wedding cake, flowers, tags and labels to your wedding scrapbook page that also had most of the wedding colors. 

Due to size of the 12 x 12 scrapbook page and lighting in my rooms, it was still a struggle to capture the subtle colors in this paper with the doves, flowers and foliage even after editting the photo for the blog.  

Overall, a scrapbook page is fairly simple to put together with the die cuts and gorgeous paper that are already designed for the theme of weddings.  Istarted with a 12 x 12 piece of Mintay, Yes I Do cardstock.   I cut out a doily from an ole die and cut out a circle of the photo and adhered together and glued to the center of the cardstock.  Once I layed down the Stamperia and Mintay die cut pieces and chipboard around the doily without covering some of the images I wanted to show, I glued these down.  I handmade some flowers and bow and adhered to the scrapbook page for the final touches.

Supplies:
handmade flowers
Ribbon
feathers, doily

So get crafting and have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting.

Sizzix Colorlit Dies Halloween Cards

 Happy Saturday, crafty friends, and thanks so much for stopping by! It’s now September and this is the time of year when my crafty ideas think of fall and Halloween. Today I wanted to share some of my Halloween cards made with Sizzix Tim Holtz Costume and Sizzix Tim Holtz Mischievous die sets along with the Simple Stories Elements October 31st patterned paper and Simple Stories Vintage October 31st stickers









Can you even resist these cute little adorable little monsters? If you’re not familiar with Colorize, it’s basically layers of dies that you build up following the color code stamped on the back of each die. I used a combination of cardstock to build my monsters, and I love how the mix of surfaces adds contrasting visual texture to the finished design. And for even more fun, I added the Sizzix Tim Holtz Mischeaveous featuring eight curious cats that are perfect for adding spooky kitties to your Halloween cards.  The set comes with 16 dies of eight cats and eight coordinating heads to make those kitties pop! 

Sizzix has tutorials on putting these monsters together which I watched and followed. Just google it and the tutorial for each monster will show up on your computer.  My first attempted for each monster assembly was a learning experience and had to do it twice to get it right.  I would highly recommend to NOT do all of the cutting at once in the beginning since those little pieces get easily lost.  Therefore, cut one die and glue to base before continuing to the next die that will be cut with a different colored cardstock.  At first, you will refer to the tutorials and the color guideline to get you through the first assembly as well as the picture on the front of the die packet of the monsters.  



Additional Supplies for these cards:
metallic gold cardstock

So get crafting and have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting.

Graphic 45 Warm Wishes Christmas Cards

Welcome back and Nancy, here, to share two Christmas cards for this year created with the gorgeous Graphic 45 Warm Wishes available while supplies last at The Rubber Buggy.  This collection is filled with gorgeous florals, snowflakes, birds, and stamps and is perfect for Christmas cards, home decor, albums, and crafty handmade Christmas gifts.  


 



Since the Graphic 45 Warm Wishes Journaling cards had most of the gorgeous images as well as the Christmas sentiments for each card, there wasn't too much to add to complete these Christmas cards.

For each card, I started with a Graphic 45 Journaling cards, Graphic 45 Warm Wishes paper pad or Graphic 45 Warm Wishes Pattern/Solid Paper pad. I cut my frame to create a 5" x 7" card and glued the patterned paper on the front and then cut it out rather than cut the patterned paper at 5 x 7 and glued it onto the frame.  I have found this so much easier. I die cut leafy pine needles, poinsettias and flowers.  I glued in the center of each poinsettia the Pink Fresh Studio Metallic Champagne pearls. I added a jute bow on one card.  

That’s pretty much all it took to complete the card front.  I liked using the metallic cardstock to frame the journaling card for that added shimmer to each card. 


So get crafting and have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting.

Graphic 45 Fashion Forward Birthday Card


Welcome back and Nancy, here, to wish you a good morning to our Rubber Buggy crafters and bloggers. Make sure to check out the new arrivals everyday coming to The Rubber Buggy since these gorgeous Fall and Winter items will sell out soon.  

Today, I am sharing a birthday card made with the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward November cardstock. This collection is so well suited for crafters to make planners, daily journals, mini albums, gorgeous cards with papers reflecting flowers and colors for that month and for all of your scrapbook needs. What I like about this the Graphic 45 Fashion Times collection is the monthly pages in this collection to create projects and cards for each month of imagery of vintage ladies, wonderful sentiments and florals for each season of vibrant colors of sapphire blue, amethyst purples, emerald greens, ruby reds and citrine yellows. 



My card measures 5 x 7" and each image and patterned paper I cut out, I added a solid colored frame and adhered the layers to the base of the card.  I hand made the flower and adhered it to the card with jute and a plaid bow.

I cut out the classy women and adhered it to the inside of the card with Graphic 45 Fashion Forward Solid Patterned Paper pad.  I scan the Graphic 45 Fashion Forward August and added a sentiment using Photoshop and printed it out to personalize the birthday card.
Supplies:

Stamperia Romantic Garden of Promises Birthday Card

Welcome back and Nancy, here, to wish you a good morning to our Rubber Buggy crafters and bloggers.  Today, I want to share a Criss Cross Envelope with a birthday card for my daughter-in-law using the Stamperia Romantic Garden of Promises collection.  What a gorgeous collection and I certainly had a great time playing with it as well as making the criss cross envelope!  

I love making a gorgeous envelope that is as pretty as the card to give to a special person. I love to wrapped my cards in tissue paper to give people in person.



I just love the goreous chipboard die cuts in this collection to add embellishments to the card and envelope.

I scanned the 6 x 6 label in the Stamperia paper pad and then used my Photoshop to type in the sentiment and print out on my ink jet to personalize the card.  I cut the printed out label 5 3/4" square and glued to inside of card.  I cut out the sentiment on the right side and glued to the cut out section found in the paper pad.




Instructions:

The Criss Cross card is fairly easy to make.  I cut out two 6" x 12 " with  white cardstock and score at 6".  Glue one 6" to the other 6".  Cut the front at a 45 degree angle and decorate by cutting two 6" squares of patterned.  Take one square for the center of the card.  The one 6" will be cut at a 45 degree angle and glue each part to the front of the card.  If you google by typing "images of criss cross cards" you will see lots of these cards and a few tutorials to help you.  I thought this card was easier to make than my normal cards and plus you made a decorative envelope.  If you are giving this to a person by hand, just use tissue paper to cover it up plus a ribbon on top and what a gorgeous card to give to your special person.   I added an ole metal frame to the front of the envelope and cut out the label from the Stamperia collection and glued behind the metal frame.  I used a hot glue gun to adhere since regular glue doesn't work well with metal.

Graphic 45 Charmed Tombstone

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  Halloween is just around the corner, and I have a tombstone shaped card with fabulous treats and I hope you will enjoy making it as much as I did! Graphic 45 Charmed is full of spooky haunted houses, light-hearted witches, black cats and jack o’lanterns with stunning color purple, orange, red, frightful black and ivy green. 

I loved playing this the Graphic 45 Charmed collection of coordinating die cuts and journal card with the paper to make this card.  I added the Tim Holtz Halloween Creepy eyes for the center of this flower.

Also, there is a pocket using the die cut in the collection of "No Tricks All Treats" on the inside of this card on the right for a gift card or treats.  I fussy cut the pumpkin and cat for the top of the pocket and black and white blocked trim for the sides of the pocket.

Instructions
Here is how to cut a basic coffin shape. Fold a piece of copy paper in half and measure as per below and cut.  When unfolded, you will have a basic coffin shape to begin. Trace this coffin on orange cardstock and cut out for the base of your card.

Next, take a 8" x 11" orange cardstock and score lengthwise 1/4" and use your bone tool for a good fold.

Take the coffin template and lay the one side on the fold and trace the coffin.  Cut this out and glue the two coffins together with the one coffin side glued to the fold.

I used another template to cut out the Graphic 45 Charmed cardstock and put each side in my trimmer, aligned, and cut out each side to get a smaller coffin shape to glue on the card base.  I did the same with the black cardstock to frame the Graphic 45 Charmed cardstock. 

To finished the card, I used ole embellishments and dies from my stash to finalize the card.

The Graphic 45 Charmed collection includes 8 double-sided papers, 12×12 collection pack (includes 16 sheets, 2 of each 8 designs & decorative sticker sheets),  8×8 paper pack12×12 Patterns & Solids pack, coordinating ChipboardJournaling CardsEphemera Assortment, and decorative Cardstock Stickers.  Each of The Graphic 4 Charmed cardstock is also available separately besides in the cardstock paper pads.

Graphic 45 Charmed Halloween Card

Welcome back and Nancy, here.  Because Halloween is creeping up around the corner, I have a Halloween card with fabulous treats and fun-loving Halloween spirits.  It was a Spooktacularly fun creation! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it! Available at The Rubber Buggy for you today, Graphic 45 Charmed is full of spooky haunted houses, light-hearted witches, black cats and jack o’lanterns with stunning color purple, orange, red, frightful black and ivy green. 


Also, I made up the moon and stars with the Prima Marketing - Finnabair - Moulds - Nocturnal Elements.  for that addition setting.  I used the Art Resin epoxy for the mould.  I sprayed the moon first with Rustoleum white primer and let dry.  I brushed on the Prima Marketing Metallic White Pearl acrylic paint and then used my fingers sponging on a little yellow from the Ranger Vintage Photo ink pad to bring out the moons face.  I used the NUVO Glitter dots to the stars, moon and parts of the card to make it a little glitzy and shine. 

I had this gorgeous Graphic 45 Midnight Tales from last year and used it on parts of the card which I thought coordinated so well.  I made a pocket for the inside of the card for those special treats for our Halloween trick or treaters.  
Graphic 45 Midnight Tales 



I added the Graphic 45 Flower Assortment Pink which coordinated so well with the background.   I sponged around the flowers some of the colors of Ranger Distress ink Vintage Photo for that worn out look and added a handmade seam binding bow using a hot glue gun.


The Graphic 45 Charmed collection includes 8 double-sided papers, 12×12 collection pack (includes 16 sheets, 2 of each 8 designs & decorative sticker sheets),  8×8 paper pack12×12 Patterns & Solids pack, coordinating ChipboardJournaling CardsEphemera Assortment, and decorative Cardstock Stickers.  Each of The Graphic 4 Charmed cardstock is also available separately besides in the cardstock paper pads.
