Comfy Chair Easel Card and a Relaxing Day

 Sometimes all you need is a comfy chair and a good book to relax and rest. It's something we all need or long for from time to time. 
 


 The Comfy Chair Easel Card sends wishes for that peaceful relaxing day.
 

 The layers for this chair let you pick your own fabrics and style from your paper stash. Here's some more designs from our Design Team that reflect their own personal style...
 
  Julie chose one of the sentiments that came with the file "Wishing You A Restful, Peaceful, Beautiful Day". She choose a floral print along with stripes and solids and the perfect pillow.

 "I wanted to share a card I made specifically for a friend who is going through some health issues and I thought this card would be the right "touch" to let her know I am thinking about her."

"The fun with putting this card together is selecting the papers/patterns for your chair ;)  My friend really likes retro - furniture, clothes, hair, etc. ... so I tried to make my chair with that concept in mind."  ~ Nicole


The Comfy Chair Easel Card is 6" X 6" and folds flat for mailing.
It includes the printable tags included below.

And here's wishing you a peaceful
relaxing day of creativity.

Photo Tutorial for the Comfy Chair Easel Card.

Use the product photo as a guide when selecting your choice of papers for individual parts of the chair. To see some inspiration for colors and prints here are some photos of this chair done by our Design Team.
1. Cut out all your pieces.
  
2. Add the cushion, skirt, back and arm layers to the front of card backing.
 
3. Add the top skirt to the front.
 
4. Add all the trim/piping pieces.

5. Add the Chair doily.


6. Assemble the bear. Use a fine point pen to add eyes.


7. Attach the bear and throw pillow to the chair.

8. Assemble inside tag layers. If you decide to use one of the printable tags included with this set, you will find those in the PDF. Otherwise you can use your own rubber stamped greeting or handwritten note. Use a pop-dot to add some height to the tag layers because this is what holds the card upright when opened.

9. Score along lines of card base. Apply glue ONLY to the front bottom half as shown.

10. Attach the finished Chair to the front of the card carefully lining up along the side and bottom edges of card backing.

11. Look of card when completed and fully closed for mailing. Card will lay flat.
 
 
 
12. When card is opened, the bottom of the chair skirt will rest behind the tag layers and held open for display.
 
 
 

Paper Pop Up Frames for Home Decor

You can make these beautiful photo frames using cardstock and your Cricut, Silhouette, ScanNCut or any cutting machine.

 
These easy to assemble frames have a 3 dimensional look without a lot of fuss.
 
We include a pdf photo tutorial in each download but I was thrilled when SugarShine Designs created a fun project using the  Scroll Top Horizontal Frame and then she shared it on her youtube channel. 
 

 
See the "3 Minute Tutorial" for this 3D Layered Frame
 
So a big "Thank You" to SugarShine Designs from me and I hope you'll give her a big thumbs up on her channel. You're going to love all her videos.
 
 
 
The use of Pop-Dots gives the depth and 3-D look to the Pop Up frames. A simple chipboard backing provides durability and a simple hinge technique for the back layers provides an easy way to change the photos whenever you choose.
 
 
These look so real your friends will have to pick them up and touch them to believe they are actually made out of cardstock. That's exactly what my friends did!!  :)



Every file comes with svg, ai, dxf and gsd so you can use these with any cutter. We also include printable pdf patterns for tracing and cutting by hand.

Martha's Sweet Heart Trees

The Sweet Trees were inspired by a similar craft seen on Martha Stewart. We LOVE Martha but are not affiliated with Martha Stewart in any way. We don't cook like her, clean like her or make the big bucks like her, BUT we did find a better, easier and inexpensive way to make those sweet paper trees.
 
 
 This latest design "Martha's Sweet HEART Trees" was created for Valentines with cut out hearts on the tips of the branches. These would also make beautiful table top decor for a wedding or bridal shower.
 
The trees are large averaging 5" to 12" tall.  You decide. Add layers for a taller tree or fewer for a smaller version. They will stand alone without a base to support them.
 
 
They come in all the different cutting files, AI, DXF, GSD and of course SVG! No matter what cutting machine you use one you'll find a file that works. All the score lines are done too.
 
Top the trees with jingle bells, pom poms or cut out hearts.
 
Here's a video tutorial that shows how easy you can put these together.

Monster Pops and Googly Eyes for Valentines

Have you met our newest little monsters?
Meet Googly Frank, Swirly Sue, Hearty Harold and Glassy Gayle.
 
 
The new Monster Love Pops are characters that hold your cake pops and lollipops. The hole in front lets the pop serve as the nose. Includes a PDF to print a one piece colored version for hand cutting.
 
It folds at the bottom and a small hole lets you slip in the stick of the pop thru. Then you glue the tops together to close.
 
Finished size after a cake pop or tootsie pop is added will be
3.75" wide x 3.75" tall.
 
 
DT Marlene's LOVE Pops...
Its February and LOVE is in the air!  These Monster lollipops are just CRAZY in LOVE. They are so easy to put together and so much fun to embellish. 

I changed up the eyes a bit on Love Monster Sue. I left out one eye layer and switched out the black eye circle for a heart shaped one. I also added little sparkly pom-poms for her antennae.
To Frank, I switched out the large circle dimple and used a heart instead." ~Marlene @ Scrappin Cookie 

Papers are Cardstock Warehouse and Doodebug Design. Stamps are Jaded Blossom.

Valentines and Sweet Tea with Shirley

 
You're going to love the sweet Valentine treat box and easel card by Shirley from Scrappy Sam Designs.
 
Sweet Valentine Heart Top Treat Box
Heart Top Treat Box by Shirley @ Scrappy Sam Designs

"It will be Valentine's Day before we know it, so I made this cute little Heart Top Treat Box. I used Heart Top Treat Boxes & Tags from My Scrap Chick for my box. I also used an older image from Magnolia and a scalloped oval from Cricut. The main part of my box is 5 3/8 inches tall (excluding the heart closure at the top)." ~Shirley 


Tea Time Easel Card
 
Tea Time by Shirley @ Scrappy Sam Designs

Thank you Shirley!

Puffy Heart Candy Gift Box

When all you have to give is
"your heart and a little bit of chocolate"
this will be the perfect candy box.
 

 The Puffy Heart Candy Box is super easy to assemble and holds a lot of candy. It's also very quick to assemble.
 


When finished the box measures 6.5" wide x 5" tall and approximately 2.25" thick at widest part. It holds 8 pieces of the yummy Lindor candies.

It takes only one sheet of 12"x12" card stock for the box itself and it's all one piece other than the panels. The self closing tab on top folds over and slips into the slot in back.
 __________________________
 
DT Shirley from Scrappy Sam Designs created the puffy heart below and added some beautiful touches. Take a look....
 
Shirley~ "I fell in love with this Puffy Heart Candy Box  from My Scrap Chick and knew I needed to make one for my granddaughter."

 "I decided to make a double bow for my box. I simply stacked a smaller bow on top of a larger one."
           

 "I decided to put a cute Cupid's Cloud image on the back of my box."
                                                                       
"I started by duplicating the heart mat and making it slightly smaller, then attached the image to it. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and added accents with gel pens and a glitter pen."
 
"This is how the finished box looks from the side..."







I liked how Shirley thought to glue the bow to the closure tab, making it the front of the box. Then when she added a colored digi to the back it was seamless. Smart thinking.

Sue's "Little Piece of Quiet" Layered Frame Card


There are so many wonderful designs for stampers to color and use in their card making. Sue is especially talented with coloring and inking as you can see in this sweet card. She chose the Classic Tall Card Frame from our selection of Layered Card Frames to mount her precious artwork.


"I used an older wood mounted stamp that has since been reissued into an cling unmounted stamp. It is called Pieces of Quiet.

I adore the card base file I used from
My Scrap Chick. I used the Classic Tall Frame Card file and resized it to fit my image.
 
I cut out a Spellbinders Heart Circles die and used the little throw away pieces to glue onto the frame. Somewhat of a pain to glue, but worth the effort!"  ~ Sue

 
 
There's more details and links on Sue's blog so be sure to
pay her a visit @ Sue's Stamping Stuff.
 
Thank You Sue!!
