Another week has gone by so fast, so time for the new Be Inspired challenge over on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is to create a gatefold card. I hardly make gatefold cards, but it was fun to make one for this challenge. Lots of Jillibean Soup goodies on this card. The various collections match really well. I used Minestrone (yellow), Alphabet Soup (blue) and Lentil Soup (green)....a great mix of colors and designs. Since I don't have the Cuttlebug Library folder yet I used a digital stamp by Maggie Lamarre, owner of the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog.
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper, journaling sprout: Jillibean Soup Minestrone, Lentil Soup and Alphabet Soup Tools: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Fiskars Upper Crest border punch, sewing machine Ribbon: Creative Impressions Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: digital stamp
Last week I showed a clear treat bag. Here's how I did it.....
Take a 8.5 x 11" ShortCuts Clear Full Sheet, and score at 2.5", 5", 7.5" and 10". Rotate paper 90 degrees and score at 2.5". Cut the scored line from the edge to the 2.5" score line, and cut off the 1" x 2.5" corner. Fold all creases. Apply tacky tape to the 1" edge, and the four 2.5" squares. Attach the long edges together and create a square tube. Fold in each of the squares one on top of each other. Fold in both sides, squeeze the top together like a milk can. (To make this a little easier you can make extra score lines from the edge to 4" at 3.75" and 8.75".) Punch two holes, and thread ribbon through holes. Your treat bag is completed. If you like to decorate your treat bag with rub-ons or stickers make sure you do so before you assemble the treat bag.
Oh....and look what arrived in the mail this morning.....some delicious soup....Jillibean Soup that is.
These gorgeous papers arrived at the right moment. My girls have been staying with my parents since Sunday and I am off work today, so....lots of ME time which I am spending on scrapping. I can tell you that the new collections are awesome. I truly hope your local stores will be carrying these collections soon. I am in love with Grandma's Christmas Soup and the Soup Staples. Lovely designs and colors.
Well, I am off to go back to my scrap room. Have a wonderful day!
