Tribute to Ringle

It has been almost three years since we lost our first Siberian Husky, Ringle.  Since that time we have lost two more of our dogs.  It has been tough losing our four legged family members, but having them in our life has been so worth the heartache.   I decided it was time to tackle my last layout of Ringle.  I think I have been avoiding it as I did not want feel the emotions again.

Here is what I designed ~

Pet Layout ~ Proplayer ~ catscrapbooking.comI am really happy the way this layout turned out.  For this layout I used the following productsL

  • Proplayer paper pack (retired)
  • Basic Fundamental Paper Pack
  • Cardstock ~ Whisper, Pacific, White Daisy and Black
  • Embellishments ~ Black Shimmer Trim, Slate Diagonal Ribbon, & Silver Sequins
  • Cricut ~ I found the heart with the paw print on with my subscription.
  • Paw Print border ~ from my stash

Proplayer Box Card

Have you seen the cool pop-up box cards yet?  I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and knew I needed to crate one of these.  With my husband’s birthday approaching next week I needed a unique card and this would be perfect.   So I needed to come up with a unique design…. my husband is a musician and has started playing drums and the guitar again.  So I used that idea as my base.

Here is the final result:

Proplayer Pop up card

The base of the card is Whisper cardstock.  I used Proplayer to decorate the sides of the box and for one of the layers on each of the guitars. I also used Slate, Black, Desert Sand and Pacifica cardstock.    The instruments are from the Musical Instrument Cricut cartridge.  I used the Chantilly Card workshop stamp set (retired) for the Happy Birthday.  The Dude you rock is a Technique Tuesday stamp set.   The embellishments used are Opaque Licorice Adhesive gems and Slate Striped Twist Ties.

Here is a close up of the front flap:

I am excited to give this card to him as I think he will really enjoy it.   Stay tuned as I will be showcasing another box card in my count down to the new catalog which will feature new product…..

Happy Crafting!

You Rock My World

Have you played around with the Proplayer paper pack yet?  I really like the colors particularly the blues.  I know it is shown with the video game and sports theme, but for me I saw it could be used for anything.  For this layout I plan to use some photos of my husband and son playing drums.  But in reality is could be used for anything as long as the colors work for you.  I made this page kit up using the Hexagon Irresistibles which I LOVE!!!  If you have not tried them I highly recommend them.  They can be inked any color and with three sizes they are perfect for all your craft projects.

You Rock my World - Proplayer

This layout accomidates three 4″x6″, one 4″x4″ and one 3 1/2″x 3 1/2″ photos.  If you like this layout and would like your own I am selling it for $10 which includes the full set of Irresistiblies Hexagons.  You will have many left over for other projects.  If you are not local to there will be a shipping fee.  Please let me know if you are interested and I will calculate the shipping fee.  The kit includes all the papers cut for you, a photo of the finished layout and directions.

Happy Crafting!

ProPlayer birthday card Open House Workshop

I designed this card using re-inkers mixed with a little alcohol (as it dries a bit faster) mixed in our spray pens.  I then sprayed the Outdoor Denim and Slate onto Daisy white cardstock.  To create the darker over-spray I took the spray pen apart and gently shook the stem part onto the card.

944599_10151456485957574_1191619791_nWelcome to the Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop!!!  I can’t believe August has finally arrived and all the awesome new product in the Autumn/Winter idea book is now available to order.  You will enjoy this blog hop as we are all featuring artwork created with that wonderful new product.  I was really intrigued by the new Designed Decor Frames and knew this was a project I wanted to take on right away.  Next came the decision of what paper pack to use since there are six new ones.  Well here is my creation:

ProPlayer Frame_new prod blog hop

I decided on the ProPlayer paper pack and it worked out great!  I used my silhouette to cut my own chipboard shapes to make the banner.  I also used my Silhouette to cut the letters, frames and name plates.  The rosettes are made from Nestibiliites scalloped circles.  I learned this trick by scoring at every scallop then make one slit to the center.  Next go ahead and fold at each score line.  Do the same to the second circle.  You will then glue the two ends  of each of the accordion scalloped circles together and it makes a really nice rosette.

Here is a list supplies needed:

  • Designed Decor Colonial White Frame Z1865
  • Hook Clips Z1899
  • ProPlayer Paper pack X7172B
  • ProPlayer Assortment Z1879
  • Whisper Card Stock X5929
  • Outdoor Denim Card Stock 1275
  • Outdoor Denim Ink Pad  Z2130
  • Ruby Ink Pad Z2170
  • Pacifica Ink Pad  Z2192
  • Whisper Ink Pad Z2172
  • Black Grosgrain ribbon
