Everything ABC’s Blog Hop ~ V

Welcome to the Everything ABC Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “V”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “V” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from DIANA SANDERS’ Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Linda’s blog HERE.

Since the letter “V” is as challenging a “U” before it when it come to crafting.  I decided to look at my Cricut Cartidges again.  Well I was VERY VICTORIOUS as I was working on a project with the Nevermore paper pack and I was needing some Halloween cuts.  Guess what is on page 71 of the Artbooking booklet??? The letter “V” and the five perfect cuts.  I purchased these BOO letters last year but never got around to completing them, so I was determined to do it this year.

Her is how it turned out.  All of the cuts are from Close to My Heart Cricut cartridges, except the tree and ghosts, these are from my Silhouette .  The ravens and spider are found on page 70 of Artbooking.  The moon, bats, fence, house and Beware also come from Artbooking on page 71.  The spider web and tombstone are from Artiste page 76.

Here is a close up of each letter.Nevermore ~ Artbooking ~ Boo Letters B ~ ABC's V ~ CatScrapbooking.comNevermore ~ Artbooking ~ Boo Letters O ~ ABC's V ~ CatScrapbooking.comNevermore ~ Artbooking ~ Boo Letters O2 ~ ABC's V ~ CatScrapbooking.com

Nevermore Gift Card Set

I will be participating in my first Craft Fair next month so I have been busy working on items to sell.  I was looking through my pins on Pinterest and found two things which inspired me.  I found a card designed by Aaron Barron which combined Nevermore with the Paper Garden stamp set you can see it here.  I also found a Book Box which looked intriguing so I decided to give it a try.  Here is what I designed.

Nevermore Gift Card Box ~ Paper Garden ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis is the cover and what the cards look like I used Eggplant as the base cardstock.  On the cover I used four flowers where the cards only have two.  I used a retired embellishment for the center of the flower.

When you open the cover, which I secured with hook and loops there is a pocket which holds four 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ cards and envelopes.  Nevermore Gift Card Set open ~ Paper Garden ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is another view.  I really love the way this card and box turned out.  I actually designed a second one using a different stamp and paper, I will post it in a couple of days.

I thought I would share with you how to create this Book Style Card Box.  You will need two pieces ~ a 8 1/2″ x 11″ and a 3 ” x 8 1/2″ piece of cardstock.  Starting with the 8 1/2″ X 11″ piece of cardstock.Book Style Gift Box how-to #1 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThenBook Style Gift Box how-to #2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comNow with the 3′ X 8 1/2″  score as follows.Book Style Card Box how-to #3 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThen trim away these sections:Book Style Gift Card Box how-to #4 ~ CatScrapbooking.comBook Style Card Gift Box how-to #5 ~ CatScrapbooking.comAdd adhesive to secure the two pieces to make the box I used Scor Tape.Book Style Gift Card Box how-to #6 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThese are super easy to create and I believe will make great gifts and I hope sell well at the craft fair.
