I made a video of this small book using the new Collection of Vintage Cut & Creates shown in the previous posting. You could call it a junk journal but it is really just a small book to illustrate some of the ways of using Vintage Cut & Creates. The concept could be taken to junk journals, art journals, larger albums & cardmaking

Four Shabby Chic Cards

 Hello Paper Artists

4 cards from the Shabby Chic Bundle of 40 papers

Pink Roses Maxi Card - video link for the pink roses cards

the card is designed to stand on display - more details on the video

Ivory cardstock 7.25"hi x 12" - score at 5.25" from left & 2" from right to create the tuck 

inside of the card - tuck spot on the right for $$ or notes

Aloe Vera Green cardstock 5.75" square

A tuck spot is created by using a framed cut & create

This is a vertical card - made from a scrap piece 4.75" x 12"
Inside of card - a complementary card piece is covered with lace & used as a tuck spot

All of the images are from the 40 paper bundle at:

Hope this gives you some ideas in using Cut & Creates on cards. The large images on the fronts are the Art Papers 4"x5" - they are also in 8.3'x11" size.

I love decorating the inside - when a card is given, words are exchanged on the front & the inside is usually used for the sentiment. But when an inside is decorated there is a WOW factor.  You do not have to go over the top as I have - can't help myself.

 Hello Paper Artists

I have enjoyed playing with the new Sherlock is Puzzled Collection.

There are 2 Journals on youtube:



There is always some left for a card:

Mocha cardstock 12"w x 6"hi with scares at 4.5" & 9"

Cream jute twine, black cardstock

The cover has a background from one of the journal papers; the cut & create is fussy cut, foam mounted & allowed to have a 3D effect. There is a strip of black cardstock on the edge. Jute twine is wrapped around the front & the first score.

The inside of the card. The 2 Sherlocks are framed in black & mounted flat. The background paper in the centre is from the same journal paper used  on the front

The 3rd panel is closed over to show that it also has a black strip on its edge; the magnifying glass is framed in black, foam mounted, has a piece of jute twine tied around it & acts as a tuck spot for the 2 tags tucked in it.

The back is simple with a Sherlock quote framed in black & flat-mounted

Hope you get some ideas from this trifold card - the style can be adapted to any kind of theme.

Have a lock at the videos for more ideas using this Collection

Bye for now
