Hello everyone!!  Jackie G here on the blog today to share a meowgical boxed card set with you using the Dream Big collection!!  I decided to challenge myself to only use scraps for this project, and that is exactly what I did!! I did have to get super creative and piece a couple of smaller scraps together to create larger panels, but it worked!! 

Scraps are perfect to make cards with!!  Pair them with some leftover stickers or other elements and voila, you will have a plethora of cards in no time!!  In this case, I used leftover bits and pieces I had along with some of the puffy stickers and 4x6 stickers.

Of course, I couldn’t just stop at a handful of cards.  I still had a handful of scraps so decided to make a fun little box to put the cards in!! I think it would make a wonderful box set to gift to a friend. 

So, I encourage you to bust out your scraps and use them up!!!  What better way to get rid of them…and make room for some new product!!!  Be Meowgical and give it a try!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Love is in the air...it’s time to remind those special people how much you love them!! 

Jackie G here on the blog today to share a simple little mini album using the collection Kissing Booth!!  This little project is perfect to share with that special person!!  I decided to keep it more “love” themed than Valentine’s Day so it could be used anytime of the year. 

To start off I made a simple 4.75” x 7” folio with chipboard.  I wanted my cover to be super over the top…because why not?!  So, I made a fun little shaker that I filled with lots of different kinds of glitter, sequins and even some of the hearts from the puffy stickers.  I then popped up lots of the stickers and chipboard elements to decorate the frame.  Lastly, I took one of the journaling cards and cut the sentiment out “to love a person is to see all of their magic, and to remind them of it when they have forgotten.”

The inside of my folio is pretty simple.  It has lots of room for photos and journaling though!!  I used the bits and pieces, stickers and some flowers I found in my stash to decorate my pockets. 

I did make two of the journaling cards into tags so I use some cute ribbons!!!  All the photomats and tags are blank on the back so you could put either photos or journal on them!!  With a 1” spine, there is lots of room to stash additional photos inside the pockets. 

I hope you enjoyed this project!!!  Have a wonderful day!!

Christmas has come and gone…and the New Year has just begun.  Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!!  Jackie G on the blog today to share a fun and super quick project with you using the Kissing Booth Collection to help you get those Valentine’s treat boxes ready!!!

The first little box I want to share with you is this adorable 3x3 treat box with a built in card!! You can find the tutorial for this cutie over at My Sister’s Scrapper YouTube Channel.  This little box is so incredibly easy and is perfect to store those little treats!! Great for those classroom Valentine’s!!

After creating this box I wanted something smaller that I could fit a giftcard inside…so I did some measurement testing and came up with this little holder.  It’s the exact same thing as the treat box above but measures 2.5” x 3.5”.

For the box you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 3.5” x 9”.  Score at 2.5”, 3”, 5.5”, 6” and 8.5”.  To create the drawer you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 3 3/8” x 4.5”.  Score at ½” on all four sides.  Use the tutorial linked above to assemble the box.  Tada!!

I hope you enjoy this fun little project to help you with those Valentine’s!!!
