3-TO-INSPIRE WITH MARINA

Hi, crafty friends!

It's Marina with you today with a new 3-to-Inspire challenge. 
I end December with a simply spread and our cool winter collection OH WHAT FUN and here are three things that inspired me to create this beauty:

1. Stamps to create a title;
2. Journaling on vellum;
3. Dots and tiny stamps for accents.

So, here we are! :)

To create the title, I used our amazing stamps sets: Ginger Upper/Ginger Lower Alhpabet and Christmas Tag - and I just adore it, because it's just countless options! (By the way, you can also find the ink that I used in the –°TK shop: it's a Detail Black and Indian Summer by Pinkfresh Studio!)

I love big photos, but I love adding journaling and embellishments to them even more, and vellum does the job perfectly!

I used our incredible die cuts from OH WHAT FUN kit and a few accents from last year's JINGLE ALL THE WAY to create the vellum cluster and I lllove these tiny stars stamps here!  

The star with the number was too bulky, so I cut its thickness almost in half with my craft knife - perfect!


Here I used our physical journaling card from the kit, but you can also find a digital version of it in our store, welcome! ;)
Ta-daaa! How do you like it? :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope I was able to inspire your paper crafting feats, friends!
See you in the New Year! ;))
XO

3-To-Inspire with Ali Moore


Ali here with one last holiday project! 

It's not too late to pull out those Christmas supplies and make a few gift tags to elevate your gift giving. Handmade touches, in my mind at least, really make a gift special and a handmade tag like the ones below do the job well!

And if the holiday celebrations are over for you, one gift I've given myself in the past, is to prep some Christmas crafts for the coming year. It's such a nice surprise when digging out holiday wrapping supplies and seeing that I took the time to prep some gift tags in advance. 

My three challenges today are:

  1. make gift tags
  2. reuse packaging
  3. add some dimension or texture



For these tags, I noticed that so many of the background packaging in the Oh What Fun kit were super cute and I didn't want them to go to waste. These packaging inserts work perfect for tags since they're usually a heavier cardstock. You'll notice I also reused the glassine bag that packaged the kit ephemera. This made a fun pocket to house a bigger tag and some more embellishing!

I had a few extra Christmas products on hand from the CTK shop that I worked in to add some dimension. I used chipboard numbered stars on the first tag, along with stamps from the 2023 kit.



On the second tag, I used some puffy stickers and my sewing machine to help hold them in place and add extra texture.


And the third tag got some die cuts and stickers on the outside and layered florals overtop of thread on the inside piece. I also used a beautiful puffy sticker on the florals for a sweet message.


I hope these tags inspire you to try one, or even all three, of the challenges with your Christmas stash. Making gift tags is such a fun and quick way to spend some time paper crafting!

I'll post a process video on my instagram if you'd like a quick look at how these came together! @PaperCutGoods

Sunday Sketch with Marci

 


Hello, thank you for joining me this Sunday for our Sketch challenge.  It is a very fun and creative one. 

Here is the sketch we will be using. I loved the evergreen trees on this page. My original plan was to follow the sketch almost exactly. After making my trees, I liked them so much I did not want to cover them up. I therefore adjusted the sketch slightly. 


Here is my final layout. I made the main page 7in wide by 8.25in tall to fit in my December Album this year. To include a longer story and more embellishing, I added two 3x4 journaling cards to the left side of the layout. 





I used two Citrus Twist exclusive cut files for my trees.  All the papers, cards, and embellishments came from the OH WHAT FUN! kit. I think the black and white color palette with a pop of red is such an elegant look. I made sure to pull a bit of red into each area of the spread.



I used a white, glitter texture paste from my stash to paint the center tree. Similar to the sketch, I wanted it to have a snow-flocked look.  I then used a red marker to color in the stars on the cut file. It was a simple step that I think adds a lot to the design. 

Here are a few more close-up looks. 




Thank you for stopping by. I'd love to see what you create with this sketch.

3-to-Inspire with Desiree Lamar


Happy holidays scrappy friends! I am sharing this week's 3-to-Inspire challenge using the Oh What Fun Christmas Kit

 For this challenge, I used ribbon, floral die-cuts, and phrase die-cuts or stickers. Here's my layout.


 I kept it pretty simple with two large clusters. I started with white cardstock on a simple patterned base. My goal was to incorporate the ribbon into the page. I decided to wrap it around each corner like a gift. I chose this blue, velvet ribbon from the Oh What Fun Kit that has sticker backing. 


The light, pastel color of the ribbon inspired me to keep my whole page light. So I reached for soft-colored florals from the Winter Florals Ephemera pack. The florals were perfect to layer on my clusters. I added doilies and 6x8.5 papers from the Oh What Fun Kit to complete my clusters. 


There were so many gorgeous titles to choose from in the Oh What Fun Icon Ephemera pack. I decided to do a double phrase with "love" and "good cheer" I love how the colors echoed the colors in the layout. 


My layout felt very light and airy. To ground it and give it contrast, I splattered black paint throughout the page. 

This layout left me feeling all the good cheer. I think my favorite part is the ribbon. Thank you so much for following along with me today! Happy Holidays!

SUNDAY SKETCH with Vanessa Taconelli

 


Hello CTK friends!

It's Vanessa Taconelli here. I am so excited to be here with you for today's Sunday Sketch. Here's the beautiful sketch that I worked with to create my design.


And this is what I created:


I used the sketch as inspiration to create a 6x8 layout . The mix & match with the collections Oh What Fun + Warm Christmas Wishes + Year in Review. The colors are so beautiful. Love all the layers and clusters.




I hope this inspires you to use the sketch for a project of your own. Cannot wait to see what you create with the sketch.
