Blog Hop! Welcome Little One & Scrapbook Adhesive Products

Welcome to our final day of blog hopping with Scrapbook Adhesives!  Hasn't it been wonderful?  A round of applause for all the designers and the creative ways the adhesives have been used!

Pockets.  I love pockets. Especially square pockets.  When I saw Scrapbook Adhesives had these Keepsake Envelopes I knew they had to be mine.

So here is my project.  It became much more involved than what was originally in my head because things didn't fit together as perfectly as they had in my imagination. All the heads of hair in our house didn't look anything like baby hair, soooo....I raided my supply of baby hair for this project.  Wow, I've forgotten how fine it was!  Hold on tightly!

Supply list:
Quietfire Design Rubber stamps: Welcome Little One
Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsake Envelopes, Crafty Foam Tape, E-Z Runner Permanent Strips
Paper Shaping Tools & Piercing Mat
Spellbinders: Labels Ten , A2 Bracket Borders One, Adorning Squares, Lacey Squares, Whimsy, Grand Calibur

Cardstock: Staples 67# Cream, American Crafts Powder
Martha Stewart rocking horse stickers
Daisy Kingdom Button
Stamp positioner
Ink Blending Tool

The pocket "elements": Lacey Square and Adorning Square diecuts, Keepsake Envelope and "treasure".

  1. Cut Powder blue cardstock 12" x 6-1/4" and fold in half to make a 6-1/4" x 6 card.
  2. Using the appropriately sized dies to fit the 2x2" envelopes, cut three Adorning Squares from cream cardstock for behind the envelopes and three Lacey Squares from blue cardstock to fit inside the envelopes.
  3. Cut one rectangle 6-3/4" x 5-1/2" from blue cardstock and one rectangle of the same size from cream.  Die cut Bracket Border along the 5-1/2" side of both colours. Layer and adhere the cream and blue border diecut as shown and trim to  6-1/2" using E-Z Runner Permanent Strips.  Round corner of cream border diecut.
  4. Stamp sentiments using VersaMagic ink and diecut with Labels Ten.
  5. Diecut butterfly and spiral flower from Whimsy die set.  Sponge edges with Sea Breeze ink and bend butterfly wings upward. Add pearls to butterfly as shown and use Crafty Foam Tape to adhere to top edge of Labels Ten.  Use Paper Shaping Tools to shape and roll spiral flower and adhere to bottom of Labels Ten.  Add pearl to center of flower and each side of the flower.
  6. Adhere "treasures" (baby hair, button and sticker) on blue Lacey Square die cuts and put one in each Keepsake Envelope. Remove release paper from back of each envelope and adhere to Adorning Square die cuts.
  7. Cut one piece of cream cardstock to 5-3/4" square and use E-Z Runner Permanent strips to attach it to the card front with edge aligned to opening edge of card. Adhere panel with diecut borders on top with cream edge extending beyond the edge of the card front.
  8. Use Crafty Foam Tape to adhere Keepsake Envelopes down left edge of card as shown.  Use two layers of Crafty Foam Tape to adhere Labels Ten to the card front as shown.
  9. Add pearls to the flap on each Keepsake Envelope.

Love the pockets for the baby card and I like the butterfly on the card.

wendy said...

Really like that you included a simpler card. Nice to see how the cork "paper" looks in use. I love the envelope too. I can see using them on a less elaborate card.
I really like your card but know myself well enough to know I could never be bothered to do all that on one card!

I love that baby card. Seems like lots of babies are coming this spring so I've needed several cards for showers. This one will be a pattern for me in the future. The butterfly really pops off of the neutral base. Very pretty.

Joni said...

Love the baby card and how you used the die cuts to surround the envelopes The other card is also nice - I'm loving working with cork these days, and the butterfly really shows off. Not a round of applause for the blog hop designers, but a standing ovation! Thanks, Suzanne, for making this happen!

Robin B. said...
