Friday fun with Mandy

Hello MLS! It's already the weekend again! Today we are sending you off with some beautiful work from Mandy Starner who created with our Garden Party this month. Let's take a look at some of the fun ideas Mandy has for you today.

Flowers For Me?


We love how Mandy used the Blooming Trails patterned paper as background so that the scalloped die cut would pop off the page.


Speaking of "POP" check out these beautiful flowers. Mandy created so much interest here by all the layering an dimension.

First Blooms


On this layout we love how Mandy created her own title from the patterned paper, cardstock stickers and tags.


 Here's a closer look at all this amazing detail. Are you inspired?

Just bee-cause


And finally we're sharing this wonderful card with all the layers and details. 

Are you ready for summer now! We sure are. Thanks to Mandy for all her beautiful work today.

So what are your weekend plans? I think we've got a bit of scrapping on the To Do list here at MLS. Join us next week for more inspiration, details about another blog hop and the introduction of June's Guest Designer. 

Have a great weekend!

Oasis 3-D Wow from Zoe

Hello MLS fans! We hope you had a great weekend! Today we are sharing some amazing 3-D inspiration from Zoe Nemburt.

Zoe is working with our Oasis collection this month and came up with an amazing project to inspire you to see this collection beyond using it for photos and cards. Let's have a look

Zoe Nemburt Oasis April Assignment

There are so many little details here we love. First do you notice how Zoe folded the Lotus die cut cardstock to ground her scene.

Zoe Nemburt Oasis April Assignment2

Zoe was easily able to attach the paper using Glue Arts 3D Extreme Adhesive squares. We love the punched roof, handmade flowers from the Lily Pad patterned paper, the little roses and you can see from this view exactly how she folded the Lotus diecut.

Zoe nemburt Oasis April Assignment3

The pearl doorknob is a nice touch too. We love the way she created a very sweet scene by cutting out elements of the Kyoto patterned paper

Zoe nemburt Oasis Card 2 April Assignment

Next Zoe created a few cards and the added black cardstock in this one is lovely.

Zoe Nemburt Oasis Card April Assignment

This Happy Birthday card has such a soft feel. We love the pairing of the cream cardstock and the scallops.

I don't know about you but Zoe has inspired me to get out my Oasis collection and create something this week! If you'd like to join me then post your creations to our Facebook page. If you do, I've got a few extra Oasis goodies to send you from my personal stash. I'll pick a random winner Friday! ~ Shemaine Smith

Layouts with Ro

Hello MLS fans! This week has flown by and we can hardly believe it's already Friday! Before we sign off for the weekend we've got some layout inspiration to share with you from design team member Ro Philippsen!

Ro created some amazing layouts with our Farmer's Market collection. Take a look


Ro's tips: In the first layout, I did a double layout, where I wanted to create a scenario.
The flowers of the tree are handmade, using paper "Tutti Fruit", Punch and spray paint. 


On the second page my idea was to do a "fruit store", to enjoy the beautiful collection "Farmers Market".

LO1&2 - doubleLO - RoPhilippsen

We love the flowers and fussy cutting! These techniques really add dimension to this double layout!

LO3 - RoPhilippsen

Ro's tips: my idea was to explore the colorful paper and the die cuts, and do a kind of grid highlighting the beauty and color of the collection.
I punched paper circles with a mini hole punch, and glued them on transparent buttons.

Thanks Ro for showing us that our Farmers Market collection is great for any photos you'd like to scrap.

And don't forget friends, we've got a Farmers Market contest going on right now with 3 fabulous prize packs and 3 different categories! To read all about it click here.

Have a great weekend!

Keely's Tip for (Made with Love): I love using Glue Arts Raise-N's to add dimension to my cards and layouts. I used them to "pop" my pin cushion off this card.

Erin Yamabe


Erin's Tip for (Happy Birthday): When I don't have a flower to match, I fold it in different ways. One of my favorites is the snowflake flower.  It is created with the scalloped squares folded into little cones.

Love that Ilene used a negative image with mists on the inside cover.


flowers and lace soften the patterned paper.

Tuesday Tutorial with Ilene

Hello MLS fans! It's time to kick off our Tuesday Tutorials with fresh inspiration from our new team members. Join us the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the 2nd and 4th weeks of every month for fresh new tutorials to help you have fun with our collections.

This week we welcome Ilene Tell and her Embellishments Tutorial with our Sew Cute collection.

Today I am going to share a super easy tutorial with you on how to make some
cute and quick handmade embellishments. If you're anything like me, you probably
love all the little embellishments and fun items you get to shop for as a
scrapbooker - it's part of the fun! And I won't lie to you, my first instinct is
to rummage through some of the pre-made stuff I accumulate. But sometimes you
don't have the perfect color, or the right amount, or the appropriate style of
embellishment you're looking for. And sometimes you really need that handmade
look. Nothing gives a project as much personality as handmade elements. For this
projects I used the Sew Cute collection becuase it was perfect for these types
of hand-stitched, handmade embellishments. And because...well, it's just so darn
cute :)


- adhesive (I like Beacon Adhesives FabriTac, especially for projects involving
- Sizzix Big Shot or Big Kick
- Sizzix Circles Die
- Tattered Florals Tim Holtz Sizzix Die (although a different flower die would
work as well)
- ink or chalk
- piercing tool and needle
- sanding block
- cloth (I used red cloth as it matched well with the Sew Cute line)
- large brad
- scissors that work on cloth, such as the Tim Holtz ones pictures here
- raw chipboard
- Crop-A-Dial (or other hole punch)
- Glossy Accents or Crackle Accents
- sheet of felt material
- patterned paper (of course!)


1. Use the Sizzix to cut a circle out of your piece of cloth. This should be the
second to smallest circle, just enough to cover the brad and tuck underneath it.
You can see here that you want to find a large brad, but it can be an outdated
one that isn't very cute since it will be covered completely. This is a great
way to use up ugly old brads :)

2. Place your circle of cloth on a craft sheet or other protected surface. Then
place the brad, face down, on top of it. Add a generous amount of the glue on
the inside edge of the brad and then fold the cloth into it. If you're using
Fabri-Tac, it will stick nicely and attach within seconds. There you have it - a
really quick and easy cloth brad!


3. Here you see a raw piece of chipboard and a scrap of pp I cut out of the pp
from the Sew Cute line that has an image of the button on it. This image is
perfect for making a chipboard button, or you can just use any pp. Glue the pp
to the chipboard, and cut a chipboard button out using the smallest circle on
the Sizzix circles die.

4. Sand the edges of the button and then ink them. Use the Crop-A-Dial or other
tool to make holes in the the middle.


5. Cover the button completely with Glossy Accents and allow to dry. Make sure
you cover it evenly without missing spots, but avoid getting any in the holes.


6. Use the Tattered Florals Sizzix die to cut two of the same flower shape out
of whatever pp you choose. Make sure you cut it with the largest flower that has
the biggest petals. A different Sizzix flower die would work for this too, as
long as the petals are nice and thick.

7. Use the same die to cut the same flower out of the felt material. Use your
scissors to trim away the edge of the flower all around.

8. Sandwich the felt flower between the pp flowers and glue all together. Again,
a cloth glue like Fabri-Tac works well for this.


9. Use your piercing tool to make holes at small even intervals all around the
flower edge. The stitch around using your floss. I used red floss, as it matched
well with the red cloth brad and the pretty reds in the Sew Cute line.


So there you have - a really easy and fast handmade chipboard button, cloth
brad, and stitched pp flower that has a nice thickness and dimension. Make sure
you keep an eye on the blog in June - my LO (appropriately called "Sew Stylish")
that featured all three of these embellishments will appear on the blog sometime
that month. Thanks for reading, hope you give some of this a try!

Cards Monday with Kristine

Hello MLS fans! We hope you had a wonderful weekend! It was a great one for scrappers with National Scrapbook Day on Saturday and then a bonus for scrappy moms with Mother's Day on Sunday.

We're kicking off Monday with some card inspiration from the talented Kristine Berc! Kristine has created several cards to inspire you to get out your City by the Bay collection.


Tip for (Hi Friend): Bring your die cuts to life with a white gel pen, glitter glue, and dimensional fabric paint.


Tip for (Happy Day): Create your own coordinating blooms by layering punched flowers using Glue Arts extreme adhesive squares to secure the layers.


Tip for (Thanks): Create interest by layering punched and inked strips of paper over the same color background.


Tip for (Hello): Add dimension to your project by layering die cuts on top of one another.  Use Glue Arts U Cut It foam blanks to adhere the layers together.


Tip for (Congrats): Add interest to your project with faux stitching using a white gel pen.

Sooo...are you feeling inspired to create some cards now? Thanks to Kristine for including her tips for adding a little something extra to the cards she created for us today.

Thanks again to Glue Arts for swapping products with us. Check out the Glue Arts blog for some more great tips using their products.

Friday project with Pearl

Hello MLS fans! Can you believe it's already Friday? We are ending the week with a cute little project from Pearl Liu.

For today's post she has created some adorable carrot boxes with the Fresh from the Field patterned paper from our Farmers Market collection.


Pearl wanted to share the link to Rubber Stampin Zone, where she found the template for those that would like to give this project a try.

Here's some tips from Pearl to help you create these adorable boxes at home

I simply printed the template directly onto the pattern paper , cut along the lines and scored and folded along the dotted lines of the template to form the basic box. 


For one box, I hand cut green leaves and for the other box  I cut a piece of green pattern paper into little strips ( not more than 1/4") and curled them for a fun, dimensional carrot top.


 Finally, I used some of the Farmer's Market journaling tags to add sentiments and finish them off.
A big thanks to Pearl for showing us this creative project today!
**And since we're talking about our Farmers Market collection today we have an announcement regarding our current contest.
We've been asked by some of our fans who don't have LSS's that carry our collections and are ordering Farmers Market collections from their favorite online stores like Two Peas and if we can extend the deadline for our contest.
We certainly appreciate everyone's enthusiasm and that you are ordering our product just to participate in this fun contest. We are happy to extend the deadline to midnight Pacific time May 31st!
So go get your craft on and enter for your chance to win one of 3 fantastic prizes!

Oasis inspiration from Norine

Today we are sharing some projects from Norine Borys with our Oasis collection.

This is the face of trouble


Norine shows you some fun ways to use our journaling die cuts



We love the use of mist on this card. It really adds a soft touch. To recreate this technique you simply mist the cardstock with your favorite coordinating color of mist and either air dry it or use a heat tool and then embellish.

I miss U the most


What a unique way to use our mini alphas!

Our thanks to Norine for today's inspiration!

We always love seeing your layouts and projects with our collections. If you've created something with our Oasis collection please load your project up to our Facebook page here.

Layout inspiration from Melinda

Hello MLS fans! Today we are bringing you a fabulous layout from Melinda Spinks with our Sew Cute collection!

Melinda - Sew Cute - April Ass 1

We love how Melinda created a fabulous 3D effect by using a border punch and layering several strips of the sew crafty paper over the 12x12 sheet of the same paper. This is an easy technique to execute and the result is beautiful. 

Melinda - Sew Cute - April Ass 2

Here's a closer look at some of the detail of the border punch and flowers. Those pearls offer a soft look.

Melinda - Sew Cute - April Ass 4

These handmade roses add a lovely touch as well as the small punched flowers.

We love how Melinda shows you that if you don't happen to have coordinating embellishments on hand you can create your own from our Sew Cute coordinating papers.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Farmers Market card inspiration with Erin

Good Morning MLS fans! We are so excited to start a new month of My Little Shoebox inspiration here on our blog.

This month we'll be using products that Glue Arts swapped with us on all of our assignments and featuring some special ones each Thursday all month long!

Today we've got some card inspiration  with our Farmer's Market collection from Erin Yamabe

Thank You



Happy Day


 "My favorite stamp from this collection is the sunflower!  I have embossed and stamped it all over."
Welcome Little One
"Another trick to getting more out of your scallop paper is to cut around the edges, preserving just the decorative border, and leaving the inside of the paper free for flower folding and/or stamping.  cut different sizes of the decorative border to add interest and layers without dimension."

We love how Erin created the grass on this card by using a border punch and layering it several times. What an amazing way to add dimension to this circle card.

These projects are beautiful! Thanks to Erin for sharing her work with us today.
