Wedding Frame Tutorial by Leslie Ashe

Leslie Ashe shows us how to make this lovely wedding frame in a step-by-step tutorial:

ACASmile1
A LAUGH IS A SMILE THAT BURSTS by Leslie Ashe

Supplies: 5th & Frolic Accents & Phrase Stickers (77292) – Remarks, Decorative Flowers (42266) – 5th & Frolic, Die Cut Shapes (85601) – 5th & Frolic, Die Cut Cards (85649) – Lucky Charm, Dark Kraft (71563) – Cardstock, Wishbone Paper (35969) – Lucky Charm, Lemonade Stand Paper (36015) – Mayberry, Charming Caroline Paper (35907) – My Girl, Precious Penny Paper (35904) – My Girl, Silver Solid (71511) – Pow!, Accent & Phrases (42392) – Thickers, Fountain Kringle (53437) – Thickers 

Leslie ashe

1) Gather your supplies: 11x14 frame, patterned papers, 8x10 photo, embellishments, etc.

2) Take the glass out of your frame because you’re making this a 3D project - you’ll be building your project on back of your frame, so cover that in cardstock.

3) Add a strip of silver glitter Pow! paper across the bottom.

4) Cut several flowers from patterned paper using a die cut machine (I used my Silhouette Cameo).

ACASmile3

5) Punch flowers from patterned paper and set all the flowers aside.
ACASmile4

6) Die cut a large doily (this one is 7") from silver Pow! paper.
ACASmile6

7) While that’s cutting, go ahead and back the die cut cards with cardstock and patterned paper

8) Build your page starting with the doily die cut – add it to top right. Glue your photo down on top, towards the right – leaving room to the left. Stagger your die cut cards and add them to the left of the photo, tucking them slightly under the photo.
ACASmile7

9) Start layering your flowers using 3D adhesive and a strong liquid adhesive.
ACASmile5

10) Add the flowers to the bottom left of the photo, overlapping them onto the die cut cards.
ACASmile10

11) Continue embellishing with flowers, die cuts, stickers, and more, until the frame looks full and complete!
ACASmile2
You could either give this to the happy couple as a wedding gift, or if it's a member of your family you could hang it on your wall for them to love and appreciate when they visit through the years!

Summer Cards by Kimberly Neddo

If these 3 cards by Kimberly Neddo don't get you excited and ready for summer, I don't know what will!

Kimberly

KNeddo-Hello-Love-Card-1
HELLO LOVE CARD by Kimberly Neddo

When it comes to embellishments, American Crafts has the best! They layer so well. I love to mix the chipboard stickers and layer with another sticker over the top. Add a few adhesive dots to give a 3D effect and everything comes together so easily and just how I love it.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Mayberry- Berry Blossom (36012), Huckleberry Pie (36019), Remarks- Accent and Phrase stickers (42400), Remarks- Cherry Cola (42397), Remarks- Chipboard Stickers (42396), Bits- Pie (85667), Premium Ribbon (58877)

KNeddo-Hello-Sunshine-Card-1
HELLO SWEET SUNSHINE CARD by Kimberly Neddo

Sometimes I love to create a fun background with my masks and inks. This mask gave me the perfect cheery feel I wanted with this card. From there, adding layers all comes together so nicely. I always save my ends of the papers with the name of the paper on the back side. I love using the strips with the additional patterned paper theme on them for projects. The three strips of paper I used here are them and just the right width for what I wanted them for. 

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Mayberry- Key Lime (36021), Summer Breeze (36013), Shady Lane (36014), Remark- Chipboard Stickers (42396), Remarks Accent Stickers (42400), Remarks- Cherry Cola Puffy Accents (42397), 3D Dimensional Stickers- Hello (85637)

KNeddo-Sending-my-love-2-you-Card-1
SENDING LOVE 2 YOU by Kimberly Neddo

I really love these burlap tags! So perfect and a simple touch to add to any project. Adding some embellishments and twine to this made for a simple, yet cheery card to send someone you needs a little extra loving. :) 

Supplies: Bits- Raspberry Decorative Tags (85666), Premium Ribbon- Twine (58877), Remarks- Cherry Cola Puffy Stickers (42397), 3D Dimensional Stickers- Strawberry (85673), Remarks- Accent and Phrase (42400), Thickers- Junebug -Blue (53466)

Nautical Place Setting Tutorial by Leah Farquharson

Today's fun summery tutorial is brought to you by Leah Farquharson!

Lfarquharson_nautical_placesetting
NAUTICAL PLACE SETTING by Leah Farquharson

Supplies: Slate (71473) - AC 12x12 Cardstock, Cherry (71026) - 12x12 AC Cardstock, Stargazers Paper (35982) - Dear Lizzy, Berry Blossom Paper (36012) - Mayberry, Front Porch Paper (36016) - Mayberry, Miss Betty Paper (36020) - Mayberry, 6x6 paper pad (36026) - Mayberry, Berry Punch 6x12 Sticker Sheet (42400) - Mayberry, Raspberry Large Decorative Tags (85666) - Mayberry Bits, Sweet Tea Epoxy Sticker Sheet (42398) - Remarks, Ribbon 24 Pack (58877) - Mayberry Silhouette shapes: American Crafts Crab #19290, Amy Tan Filigree Circle #38536. Beach Lighthouse Craft Supplies: burlap, red wool felt, hot glue gun

Simple napkin rings: I loved layering up the gingham with the ric rac to make these simple burlap napkin rings. They came together quickly, but add a great touch to a place setting.

1. Cut a 6x1.5" piece of burlap making sure to cut between the threads to reduce fraying. Pull one thread on each side to add just a bit of fray. Cut a 6" piece of gingham ribbon and a 6" piece of ric rac. 
Napkinring1
2. Layer the burlap and ribbons together and attach with a small amount of hot glue. (You can use other adhesive, but the hot glue will give the ring a bit of shape.)
Lfarquharson_napkinring2
3. Overlap the edges and add a bit of hot glue to create the circle.
Lfarquharson_napkinring3
Crab placecard:

1. Cut one sheet of 6x6" paper (I used a burlap patterned one) to 4x4". Fold it in half. Add a name using round alphabet stickers. Add half of a doily sticker. You could also use the Amy Tangerine Filigree circle cut on your silhouette for multiple placecards. Size the crab to about 2.5" and cut from red cardstock.

Lfarquharson_placecard1

2. Add the crap to the top edge of the card.

Die cut a lighthouse from nautical papers for a fun centerpiece.

Summer Week!

Summer
Guess what's this Friday? The first official day of Summer! So we thought we'd take the opportunity to have a Summer Week and put everybody in the mood for sunshine and lazy days :) Paige Evans has a pair of summery layouts to begin this week's festivities:

Paige

Reunion 2012
REUNION 2012 by Paige Evans

To make this layout I trimmed 2" squares from every patterned paper in the Yes Please collection by Amy Tangerine as well as some of the pages of the Original Daybook. After trimming each square in half to make triangles I placed them in circles to create pinwheels. With a pair of fun family reunion photos in the middle, I placed the pinwheels around the layout, stitched circles over them to attach them permanently, and trimmed the excess. A Thickers title was placed over the photos, a bit of journaling written on the side, and added drops of white Mister Hueys mist to finish it off!

Supplies: Currently Paper (35924) - Yes Please, Remember Paper (35925) - Yes Please, Play Paper (35926) - Yes Please, Sentiment Paper (35928) - Yes Please, Commit Paper (35929) - Yes Please, Share Paper (35930) - Yes Please, Consistent Paper (35931) - Yes Please, Perfect Paper (35932) - Yes Please, Confident Paper (35933) - Yes Please, Thoughtful Paper (35935) - Yes Please, Trust Paper (35935) - Yes Please, Fulfill Paper (35936) - Yes Please, Reflect Paper (35938) - Yes Please, Understand Paper (35939) - Yes Please, Heart Paper (35940) - Yes Please, Priority Paper (35941) - Yes Please, Hello Paper (35942) - Yes Please, Truth Paper (35944) - Yes Please, Glimmers Paper (35945) - Yes Please, Hopeful Paper (35946) - Yes Please, Dreamy Paper (35947) - Yes Please, Treasure Corrugated Cardstock (35948) - Yes Please, Moments Corrugated Cardstock (35949) - Yes Please, Details Corrugated Cardstock (35950) - Yes Please, Goodness Woodgrain (53458) - Thickers, Wish White (53456) - Thickers, 6x6 Paper Pad (35954) - Yes Please, Organize (42364) - Remarks, Discover (42366) - Remarks Puffy Stickers, Origial (35957) - Daybook, Create (85626) - Bits Die Cut Shapes, .03 Black (62311) - Precision Pen, Shamrock (71059) - Cardstock, .5" Super-Sticky Tape (61754) - This to That, Dot Glue Runner (61713) - This to That

Sweet Summertime
SWEET SUMMERTIME by Paige Evans

With a summer theme in mind, I trimmed papers from all of the most current 6x6 paper pads American Crafts makes into sunrays then placed them around a blue cardstock background as a large sun. To secure everything in place I sewed around and around the strips then bent up the edges for dimension. I tore a little section of the edges, tacked down the bent edges with a tiny puffy heart sticker, and backed those spots with floral border stickers. I framed a pair of black and white photos in the middle with stickers, die cuts, journaling, chipboard, and more. Drops of white spray mist mimic splashes - perfect for the pool photos!

Supplies: 6x6 Paper Pad (35954) - Amy Tangerine Yes Please, 6x6 Paper Pad (36026) - Mayberry, 6x6 Paper Pad (751473) - Lakeside by Pebbles, 6x6 Paper Pad (683209) - The Pier by Crate Paper, 6x6 Paper Pad (331411) - Atlantic by Studio Calico, 6x6 Paper Pad (331286) - Sundrifter by Studio Calico, Lemon Fizz Cardstock Sticker Book (41396) - Remarks, Cherry Cola (42397) - Remarks Puffy Stickers, Sweet Tea (42398) - Remarks Epoxy Stickers, Orange Soda (42399) - Remarks Chalkboard Stickers, Berry Punch (42400) - Remarks Sticker Sheet, Pie (85667) - Bits Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, Blue Jay (71072) - Cardstock, .5" Super-Sticky Tape (61754) - This to That, Dot Glue Runner (61713) - This to That

Fathers Week Guest Designer: Gina Lideros

Guest Designer
The creative and lovely Guest Designer for Fathers Week is Gina Lideros!

Gc

Short bio: Hi! My name is Gina Lideros and I am so excited to have the opportunity to guest design for American Crafts! I have been married to my husband Frank for 15 years (this November) and we have two kids ages 14 and 10. We live in sunny California with our 3 fur babies (dogs). We love to enjoy the outdoors and like to go camping and biking. I have been scrapbooking since 1997 and have been fortunate to work with a lot of great companies and meet some awesome friends.

How did you get started scrapbooking? I was introduced to scrapbooking through a childhood friend. She told me about a local store in our area and after I went there I was hooked!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? That's a hard one! It would be a tie between Thickers and all of the patterned papers.

DADDY'S BEST FRIEND by Gina Lideros

It wouldn't be Father's Day in our house if I didn't include our 2-legged friends. This photo is special to me because Roxy is the first dog that we adopted together as a family and she has a special place in Daddy's heart. When working with a large photo I found that it is easiest to keep the embellishments simple and bringing in lots of color from different patterns compliments a black and white photo well.

Don't forget to look around the home to use "found items" on your layouts. To add texture to this layout I wrapped plain white paper straws with strips of alternating patterned papers. I love the visual interest that it adds.

Breakfast in Bed by Allison Waken

Allison Waken shares, "My boys and I love breakfast in bed. Father's Day is yet another excuse for this fun tradition. Since it's a special day we wanted to spruce up his breakfast tray with some little notes about why we love him."

AWDadsDay-17
BREAKFAST IN BED by Allison Waken

Supplies: Black (AM710-82) - Cardstock, 6x6 Paper Pad (36026) - Mayberry, Canvas Fabric Chipboard Letters (53463) - Thickers, Cork Chipboard Letter Stickers (53464) - Thickers, Pink Goodness (53459) - Thickers, Trinket Printed Chipboard Stickers (42392) - Thickers, Chalkboard Stickers (42399) - Remarks, Accent & Phrase Stickers (42400) - Remarks, Cupcake Shaped Wood Buttons (85669) - Whittles, Pie Die Cut Cardstock Shapes (85667) - Bits, Sentiment Screen Printed Clothespins (85663) - Whittles 

Allison

To start out we pulled some supplies that we thought we might use.
AWDadsDay-1
Then we started on our main banner with 2 sticks and some twine.
AWDadsDay-2
To use the chalkboard sticker on our banner I stuck it onto a scrap piece of a paper bag and trimmed off the excess.
AWDadsDay-3
The boys helped by stringing the shaped wood buttons onto the twine and embellishing the chalkboard label.
AWDadsDay-4
We finished off the banner by tying the twine to the sticks.
AWDadsDay-5
Next we made a few tags by wrapping chalkboard stickers around toothpicks and embellished with reasons we love Dad.
AWDadsDay-7
We made a stand up card that says "We love you because" so he'd know what the flags were all about. The card started with a folded 6x6" sheet of paper and misting over Thickers.
AWDadsDay-11
We finished off the card with a few more Thickers and yet another chalkboard sticker (love those things!). A little pocket and clothespin with a love note finished off our breakfast tray embellishments.
AWDadsDay-12
With a placemat of black cardstock and the addition of our fun embellishments, our breakfast tray was complete!
AWDadsDay-13
AWDadsDay-15
AWDadsDay-14
AWDadsDay-25
Any dad would LOVE to wake up to this on Father's Day!

Coasters by Heather Leopard

Gifts for Friends
Here to wrap up Gifts for Friends week is Heather Leopard with a bunch of cute altered coasters:

COASTERS by Heather Leopard

Supplies: Little Trinket Paper (35983) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Lucky Coin (35978) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Blue Skies (35979) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Raindrops (35971) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Starlight (35981) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Printed Chipboard Shapes (85655) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Accent & Phrase Stickers (85657) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Die Cut Cards (85649) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm 

To create the coasters, I used wood glue to adhere popsicle sticks to a long piece of thin wood. Once the glue dried, my husband cut then into squares. I then applied Mod Podge to the top of the coasters, applied patterned paper and flat embellishments, and set them aside to dry. Once dried, I used a thin sander/file to distress the paper in all the grooves because I wanted to see the lines. I also applied complimentary strips of paper to the sides of the coasters and applied top and side layers of Mod Podge to protect the paper. These coasters can be used for drinks, a candle, artwork, or whatever the recipient desires.

Gift Basket Tutorial by Angie Gutshall

Angie Gutshall is here with a gift basket step-by-step tutorial!

GIFT BASKET by Angie Gutshall

Supplies: Cut Up Cartridge Trimmer (90713) - Trimmer, Summer Breeze (36013) - Mayberry, Sweet Splash (36023) - Mayberry, Berry Blossom (36012) - Mayberry, Mayberry Dimensional Embellishments (85673) - Details, Mayberry Large Decorative Tags (85666) - Bits, Mayberry Cardstock Sticker Book (42396) - Remarks, MayberryCardstock Sticker (42400) - Remarks, Mayberry Puff Sticker (42397) - Remarks, Mayberry Value Pack Ribbon (58877) - Ribbon

Angie

First I started off using the American Crafts Trimmer to score some paper. I love this trimmer - it is so smooth and cuts like butter!
 
June-1
 
After I scored the paper I fan folded the paper to look like this:
 
June-2
 
Then I took a pair of scissors and cut the long pieces into tiny fan folded stripes. I will place these in the pail as a decorative packing around the gift.
 
June-3
 
I then took some of the pretty ric rac ribbon that is in the Mayberry ribbon pack and placed it around the top of my pail.
 
June-4
 
I took one of the premade Mayberry tags and added a few dimensional embellishments to it. 
 
June-5
 
For the front of the pail I layered some of the Mayberry chipboard and cardstock stickers. And you will notice at the bottom I also added some more ribbon from the Mayberry ribbon pack.
 
June-6
 
Here is my finished gift! I added some nail polish, top coat, a file, Burt's Bees lip balm, and BB lotion. I thought this was a perfect gift to give a friend for the summer!
 
June-Project
 
I hope I have inspired you to make your own "friend" gift!
