It was less than an hour before we had to leave… and I hadn’t wrapped up the year end gifts for the group of girls! I really didn’t want to just toss loose candy and a gift card at them. What to do? ScanNCut to the rescue!
If you’ve ever taken a class from me at a craft store then you already know: I like my embellishments stored simply, and to keep things fun!
Recently I realized that I needed to make a new container – one just for random sequins. I love to call my button and embellishment jars like this party jars. It’s a party in there – full of randomness and fun. This time though, I realized that I have the perfect jar – and a scrap of purple vinyl just right to become a “party jar mix” label. [Read more…]
I have been what I call “pre-crafting” over here, and preparing for summer travels as well as crop creating and more. Today I want to share with you two ideas that I have as well as links to ScanNCut video tutorials if you’d like to see those as well.
As I always disclose – I am a brand ambassador for the ScanNCut – it really is a machine I use and love! All ideas and opinions you see here are my own – including one of my favorites which is to have watercolor fun with the ScanNCut and all that I draw from it!
Today is a VERY exciting day – Brother ScanNCut has new batches of Disney cut files! As I always disclose to you, I’m a brand ambassador for the ScanNCut (aka I am a paid consultant, but all ideas & opinions are my own!) – So I was really excited when these hit my inbox because as I knew (but hadn’t yet shared…) there are cupcake designs!
This might not be exciting to you – but to me this is over the moon awesome. I have a SERIES of ideas for these cupcakes! But first… a gift card holder! It’s simple enough, you’ll want to have 4 1/4 x 12 (or any size paper you like) folded so that you have an approximate 1 1/2″ fold for a gift card (see video).
Then layer on whatever you like! I stamped a sentiment, added a doily, some thread, and sequins too. a
The real fun though is deciding what colors and materials to cut out the cupcake pattern from. This one is all paper – next time felt is going in the mix for a custom patch for a travel project. Stay tuned! For more details and how-to here is my YouTube video.
Perhaps it’s my healthy eating habits that have me craving paper (calorie free) sweets – but I’ve got ideas from pastel colors to wild patterns and I’m getting to work! Stay tuned…
Note: the Disney cut files are available from Brother dealers.
