DIY Page Tabs With Envelope Punch Board

Today I am sharing a tutorial how to make page tabs with WRMK Envelope Punch Board.

DIY Page Tabs with Envelope Punch Board --> http://wp.me/p1DmW0-2cE #diy #papercrafting #biblejournaling #wermemorykeepers #wrmk #envelopepunchboard #diycraftsupply

Since I do not have tab punch, I make my own page tabs using WRMK Envelope Punch Board. It is very easy to make and you can do in any sizes you need for your Bible journaling, or planner, or use them on any projects you want.

Here are the steps:

  • Cut paper or cardstock in sizes you desire. I cut mine on the video in 2 inches x 1.5 inches.
  • Score and fold.
  • Place it under the punch.
  • Punch one side.
  • Flip over and punch again.

Hopefully the picture video is clear enough to show you how to make them. Fell free to ask me questions in the comment if you have 😊

Have a blessed Friday and Happy Crafting!

Springtime Wishes: Happy Birthday

Today I would like to share you a new stamp set and matching dies that I use on my project and I absolutely love it! This project I created for a blog hop and 2 challenges.

Welcome to the first Joyful Stars Blog Hop in 2016! Every month I join a group of Close To My Heart consultants sharing a project we make using new/current products. I hope you’ll find the projects we share inspire you to create.

JoyfulStarsBlogHopBadge3_stephanie

This is a monthly blog hop hosted by Joyce Houck’s blog. If you arrived from her blog, the you are on the right track 🙂 But if you are here first, you can either continue blog-hopping to make a loop or you can go back to Joyce’s blog post to see the rest of the list of participants.

Kicking off this blog hop this year, I created a card using one of the new stamp sets and thin cuts. YES you read it correctly. Close To My Heart released new products this month and one of them are  4 new stamp sets with matching thin cuts as in thin dies. They are compatible with all diecutting machines that can cut metal thin dies. For this projects, I used my WRMK Evolution Advanced to cut the pieces.

CTMH Thin Cuts & WRMK Evolution Advanced Diecutting Machine

I used Springtime Wishes stamp set and Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts on both of my card. Here’s my first card:

For this card, I picked the color combo from the new Charlotte Paper Packet: Black, Slate, Whisper, Champagne and Sorbet.

I wet a piece of Watercolor Paper with clean water and added some watercolor paint to create the background. Then I dried it with Craft Heater for speedy drying, but you also can let it sit to dry.

On a piece of White Daisy cardstock, I stamped the flowers and leaves using Slate Exclusive Ink Pad, then I added the matching dies on them and run it through my diecutting machine.

Happy Birthday

I added them on the cards using glue dots and 3D foam tape for some dimensions. Then on a strip of Black cardstock, I heat embossed the sentiment from Joyful Birthday stamp set using VersaMark ink pad, Ranger Gold Embossing powder and Craft Heater. Then added on the card using 3D foam tape and finished it with some clear gems.

I hope you like my card today 🙂 Your next stop is Nancy Brown’s blog to see what she has created for you!

Have one fabulous day!

Simon Says: Something New

Shaker Cards with FUSEables Kit

FUSEables Shaker Cards | Helen Gullett www.helengullett.com #FUSEables #wrmk #wermemorykeepers #creatingjoyfully #handmadecard #shakercard #cardmaking

Making cards is a hobby that I find it challenging me to be creative with designs that is mailing-friendly, not requiring too much extra stamps to send it. Shaker card is one of them.

I learned making shaker cards using thicker foam tapes. Shaker cards is so much fun, don’t you agree? But to send the shaker card is required more postage compare to regular mail. I do not mind at all to send with more postage especially sending cheers to others!

Few weeks ago, I got the FUSAable Tool and Card kit from HSN. This kit includes the Fuse tool, mat, rulers, Fuseable sleeves, and Fuseable cardmaking kit (including the matching color sequins!!)

I learned to make shaker cards using this Fuse Tool with Fuse Sleeve. It is super easy and quick!!! I am in love with this new FUSEables kit from We R Memory Keepers.

Check out these 4 shaker cards I made in less than 30 minutes!

When using this FUSE tool it is safer with no kids around because it is super hot! It came with the stand but it is best to put the stand on the silicon mat so it won’t slide when you put the FUSE tool on it. If you put on the table, it will slide. Be careful.

The FUSEables papers and embelishments make making cards easy and fun. It gives extra texture on the card, just like you sew your card, these cards you can see the texture of the FUSE tool when I attach the embellishment on the background paper.

And these shaker cards are flat enough to mail with regular postage and they are still fun and cute, right?

Thank You for visiting today and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Disclaimer: This is not a review blog post. It is all my own opinion about this kit and I bought the kit on my own. We R Memory Keepers and HSN did not ask me to do review on the kit and did not provide me free kit.

Joyful Birthday Banner Card

I got my Fuse Tool and Card kit from We R Memory Keepers early this week. This kit is now only sold by HSN. SUPER EXCITED to try this fuse tool after hearing some review from my crafty friends 🙂

And today I had a chance to make this cute birthday card to celebrate one of my favorite stamp & die companys. Neat and Tangled is celebrating their 3rd Birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Neat and Tangled! Wish you the best all year long!

I am inspired by one of the Card Examples come with the kit:

Using the fuse tool I made this card in less than 5 minutes and with no kids around because the fuse tool is very HOT. Background and banners are fusable papers. This fusable papers are smooth and have to be very careful when want to fuse them together, they could be very slippery. Simply add the banner on the background paper and fuse them one by one, overlapping them little bit.

Then I added some crystal clear sequins from Neat and Tangled using Glue Dots Mini. I got them from as a little gift from them when I ordered stamps and dies 🙂 Their sequins have beautiful colors and thick, check them out and you’ll love them, too.

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Joyful Birthday stamp set (LOVE this set from CTMH!) using Desert Sand Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad on a piece White Daisy cardstock, then using Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors I cut the dove tail. I used 3D Foam tape to add the banner sentiment on the card.

In my opinion, for making this fusable papers into cards, they are not strong enough and too slippery and smooth to write on. There are couple tricks. First, if you still want to make the card using this fusable paper, you can add a piece of white cardstock inside the card for writing space and make it stronger. Second trick which is what I do for my cards, that I use White Card as the base. After decorating the fuse paper with embellishments, I add it on the front card using glue runner. I almost covered the whole card with glue to make sure they glued together.

And my card is done 🙂 Hopefully you’ll like it as much as I like making it! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Inspire Me Monday – week 190

Go and Do Amazing Things

Today I share my project at Stuck On U Sketches for their new Die Cut Challenge, “Clear Sky.” For this challenge, you can use any die cut shapes on your projects that you can find in the sky.

I am inspired by one of the Neat and Tangled Design Team members when I made this card:

sous-dc-040815-hmg

I cut the Origami Map from Neat and Tangled using my WRMK Evolution Advanced machine. I picked rainbow colors of cardstocks I had in stash. Then stacked them, a little off set from one to another, using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue. I stamped the airplane and heart using CTMH White Daisy Pigment Ink Pad, drew the trace lines using Rolly Gel White Pen and stamped the sentiment using CTMH Black Exclusive Ink Pad. The sentiment, plane and heart are from the matching Origami Map stamp set. I finished my card with some sequins from Neat and Tangled, too.

You still have time to Link up your project here! I hope to see your creative projects for this challenge!
