Handmade Holidays Blog Hop: Day 1 with Gift Ideas

Handmade-holidays-banner

We are so excited to participate in the 6th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! Today, you will experience great ideas from so many incredible companies and designers. It will be such a fun day to hop along! Today, Sandy Trefger and many other designers are sharing gift ideas. Let's take a look at Sandy's awesome gift idea:

  Card Folio Gift Set, Ladies Diary, Tutorial by Sandy Trefger, Product by Graphic 45, Product by Clearsnap, Photo 001

"A card folio gift set makes a wonderful holiday gift for those who love to send cards throughout the year.  This folio holds up to six cards and envelopes, and is decorated with the lovely, vintage Graphic 45 Ladies Diary collection.  All six cards match the folio with assorted sentiments stamped in coordinating Graphic 45 Decades Ink by ClearSnap.  Once the folio is empty, the recipient may fill it with extra cards or use it to hold photos or a note pad.  This folio is easy to make and can be done in an afternoon or evening.  The cards may take longer, depending on how decorative you like to make them. Happy Crafting!" ~ Sandy

Sandy's Gift Tutorial Video


Card Folio Gift Set, Ladies Diary, Tutorial by Sandy Trefger, Product by Graphic 45, Product by Clearsnap, Photo 001

Tip:

If you create cards that are flatter (no thick embellishments or flowers, etc.) you may be able to tuck up to eight cards in to the folio.  Definitely make a few extra cards to match the set and give those to the recipient even if those extra cards do not fit in the folio.  This way there will be a few extra as cards are mailed out.  Use a different sentiment stamp on each card so they can be used for different occasions and make sure that some are all occasion such as “always on my mind” or “just because”.

The Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 5

Graphic 45 Scrapbook Adhesive Blog Hop 2016 Logos

We cannot believe it's already the last day of our blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! We have had the best week of inspiration. And, there's more today! We're ending this week with a bang from our great designers!  

Christmas cards, St Nicholas, Tutorial Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (02)

First, Maggi Harding shares stunning handmade holiday cards that are perfect to mail out this coming season! She uses our Square Tag Staples and St Nicholas to make these stunning cards! 

"Ahhhh, I have the best of intentions and I always say, this is going to be the year that I send out handmade Christmas cards.  But, you know what happens, yep, I just never get around to it.  Now this is going to be the year, and I've designed a pretty but easy card and envelope to make this a quick, fun, and awesome project!

I purposely cut the card that is adhered to the tag slightly smaller than the tag so that I can cut 3- 4" x 8" cards from a single sheet of paper.  That will help make this an economical project.  The card and tag just have one other layer cut from the same sheet of paper and you can cut enough layers for several cards from one page.


I used Scrapbook Adhesives to pop up layers that help give my card and envelope a festive and professional look.  Scrapbook Adhesives Adhesive Sheets made attaching my diecut and punches really quick and easy.  With that I didn't have to worry about smeared glue." ~Maggi

Maggi's Snapguide Tutorial

 

Check out How to Make Quick Christmas Cards With Envelopes by Maggi HARDING on Snapguide.

 

Tip: Use an assembly line approach when making similar multiple items, i.e. cut,  score, etc. all the pieces at the same time.  Then line the pieces up in the order that they are assembled and quickly put them together.

The Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 4

  Graphic 45 Scrapbook Adhesive Blog Hop 2016 Logos

 More great ideas from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Graphic 45? You don't say! Well, it's true. Today, the fun continues with more fabulous projects!

Before we jump in, let's see who won our Place in Time Sneak Peek giveaways yesterday! Our randomly chosen winners are...

From the Blog:

-Nancy: Thank you so much for re-releasing this collection. I had started a calendar project that was created using this collection and now will be able to complete it.

-Kelli S.: This collection looks fantastic! I'm new to graphic 45. It all started just a few weeks ago when I saw "A Christmas Carol". That began a hunt for as much of it as I could find, and then I bought Safari Adventure, and some of Enchanted Forest and now my wishlist has just grown and grown. I love each new and older collection that I begin to explore and each one is quickly becoming a "must have."

From Facebook:

-Dottie Sims: Yay - happiness all year round!

-Jane Franklin: Love this collection so much!

Congratulations to our winners! Please email joanna@g45papers.com to claim your prize. Thanks for joining us, and now on to the blog hop fun!

For You Card Box Set, Secret Garden, by Einat Kessler, product by Graphic 45, photo 3

Einat Kessler shares a gorgeous set of Secret Garden cards that would serve as a great gift!

"This is a fast, affordable and easy project. What I love most about it is that you only need the Secret Garden collection to create it. All the cards, the box and the embellishments are all created from these papers. And the best thing is that you can create this under an hour!

This is all about being ready. All the cards are prepared and left empty without a sentiment so whenever you need a card you pull one out of the box, add your sentiment and you’re all set!" ~Einat

Einat's Snapguide Tutorial

 

Check out How to Make a Card Box Set by Einat Kessler on Snapguide.

 

Tip #1: Use punches to create embellishments. You can create as many embellishments as you want from any paper in any color that you want. Unlike stickers punches last for a long time!

Tip #2: Use foam tape to add dimension to your project. Use the Scrapbook Adhesives roll of foam tape so you can cut the tape to whatever size you need!

The autumn inspiration is here with beautiful tags from Joanne Bain! What beauties using Botanicabella.

"For my project today I decided to create 2 Autumn themed tags using the gorgeous Botanicabella collection. To create the tags I fussy cut some of the images from the patterned papers.  I then double layered the base tags using the Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner (which I didn’t realise was the actual refill..lol) and to help create the dimension on them I used the Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Squares." ~Joanne

The Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 3

  Graphic 45 Scrapbook Adhesive Blog Hop 2016 Logos

Day 3 and the fun is just beginning! We are loving hopping along with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L! So many great ideas this week. And today we have even more inspiration!

Off to the Races Tuxedo Box and Pop-Up Album, Tutorial by Alexandra Morein, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 1

First, Alexandra Morein has the most amazing set of projects with great video tutorials as well. How fun!

"Pop-up becomes  now more and more popular in scrapbooking. Crafters seek for something new and unique to add to their creations.

Today I want to share with you a pop-up mini album, which has 3 pop-up elements’ designs and 6 pocket pages. It can hold 14 pictures of 5” x 3.5” and 6 more pictures of 3” x 4”.

It comes with a tuxedo shaped box, which was created from scratch out of chipboard. I have been thinking about the shape of the box quite a lot, and looking at the picture on the signature sheet of the “Off to the Races“ collection gave me the final idea. The most inspiring for me personally, funny as it may sound, were the gentlemen’s bows. 

I created a fabric bow by myself, to put on top of the box as a finishing touch. I think it adds more character to the whole project and looks much better than if it was made of paper.

The three pop-up designs that I was talking about are called as follows:

  • Twisted pop-up panel
  • Automatic pull tab
  • Z-fold pop-up panel

In the world of card making these 3 designs are very popular now, and since I mostly made cards before I developed my love and passion for mini albums, I decided to adopt the designs for the pages of the mini album.


In the accompanying tutorial, I will show you how to create the tuxedo box. I hope you will enjoy the tutorial and use the wonderful G45 papers for crafting along." ~Alexandra

Quick and Easy Thank You Card Set Tutorial, Cafe Parisian, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 2

Who doesn't love gorgeous cards? Kathy Clement has them for us in spades today. So many great techniques!

"Anyone who plays with paper has had to address the issue of dealing with scraps. Every scrap of G45 paper is so gorgeous that I can’t bear to toss it in the recycle bin.  So,  I used to have boxes and drawers bulging with leftover papers. 

Then one day I realized that project scraps are really just cards in the making!  Instead of cramming my scraps into a box or a drawer where they would languish (and multiply!) I started using them to create small note cards, thank you cards, and tags.

This set of 4 thank you notes is made from leftover pieces of a larger project.  I added in some ATC thank you tags, chipboard flowers and ribbon and in under an hour, I had 4 cute as a button Cafe Parisian Thank You notes. 


I’ve created a YouTube Video so you can start making your own quick and easy note cards utilising leftover bits of paper." ~Kathy

Tip: Lightly mist the back of chipboard flowers with a little water before shaping with ball stylus and foam mat.  This helps break down the fibers in the paper, making them easier to shape.  It also releases the starch in the paper, so that the flowers, when dry, will hold their shape better.

Tip: Custom color your own designer ribbon with Distress ink.  Choose ink colors that go well with your project, then smoosh the ink pads onto a non stick craft sheet. Spritz lightly with water until little beads form.  Then soak the ink up with your ribbon, scrunching it in your hands to evenly distribute the ink.  Dry gently with a heat tool.
