You're the Pumpkin Spice to my Latte Greeting Card

 



Greetings! Chris here celebrating Pumpkin Spice Season! I can tell this season is here because the lines at Starbucks in my home town are even longer than usual! I created this quick and easy pop up card that would be perfect for a special friend! To create this card I used the Bundle from Fotobella. This bundle has everything you need to create all your fall projects!

How to create this Greeting Card with your Carta Bella Welcome Fall Mega Bundle

Starting with a 5 1/2 inch square card base, score the front layer at 2 3/4 inches.
Using the Brown leaves paper from the Carta Bella Welcome Fall Mega Bundle, cut two rectangles 5 by 2 1/2. Adhere these onto your card front.

Cut a 5 inch square from the brown plaid paper from the Carta Bella Welcome Fall Mega Bundle. Adhere to the inside of your card.

Cut the sentiment card from your papers and mat onto the brown plaid paper. Add adhesive to the bottom of your sentiment panel only and adhere to the bottom panel of your card front. (see picture below). This allow the card to pop-up when opened.
Cut a banner from the cardstock in your Mega Bundle from Fotobella. Adhere to the inside of your card. Add emphemera sentiment and stickers included in your Carta Bella Welcome Fall Mega Bundle from Fotobella. This banner serves as a “stop” so that the front panel stays “up”.

Overwhelmed and taking a small break!

 


You may have noticed a bit of a slow down on my blog! I am a bit overwhelmed with my day job which involves COVID Response!  I have avoided this post for a while but I after over a year and a 1/2 of going full blast something had to give!   So I have temporarily taken a break from most of my design team work.  Besides being a little bit creatively blocked I honestly was having trouble finding time to blog and keep up the social media presence!   Here's hoping it is only a short break!   You will still see some occasional posts as I keep a few guest design spots! Stay healthy!

How to use ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever to Crete a Custom Photo Frame

 


Greetings!  Today I am excited to share this Custom Photo Frame I created.  I was inspired when I saw a jute photo frame in a gift shop while on vacation.  I just knew I could make it myself! A what a pretty frame for my picture of the Maine Lupines! 

Start by gathering your supplies including a dollar store frame, some thick jute (also from the dollar store), and your ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever. And it wouldn't hurt to have your ScraPerfect’s Best Cleaner Ever on hand because you will get a little sticky! 




Start by removing the glass from your frame.  Add a line of ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever along the inside edge of frame. Adhere a piece of large jute.  Don't worry if some of your frame still shows. 


Wrap another line of your ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever and jute around the frame. 
Continue wrappiong ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever and jute around the frame. You can got back and fill any gaps with more jute.  If the gap is smaller than your jute try unravelling your jute and using individual strands to fill those gaps. 
Like I mentioned your hand will get stick so don't forget that ScraPerfect’s Best Cleaner Ever will make clean up a breeze!

Adhere some flower sprigs and embellishments and a jute bow to finish off your frame. 





I hope you are inspired to get creative with your ScraPerfect Supplies!
