Designing things for Apple Wagon

Recently we met the owner of a local Antique Mall.  She has more things than just antiques.  So she got in some scrapbook/card making supplies.  We kind of volunteered to help her by make some examples.

The things she got are very random and don’t really go together too well, but those of you that know me know that is right up my alley! It will take me several weeks to make examples of it all but here is some of the first batch!

Cards

The owner has been very positive and so supportive! It’s fun to create something from such random pieces! If you live here in Missouri you should check out what she has because her prices are really great! And be sure to check back here for more examples of things you can make with them!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day Cards

With Mother’s Day coming up we had the opportunity to make some cards for the mothers in our lives! 

We decided to go with a modified box card for them all, but think they all turned out unique!  We used either paper or silk flowers for them all. We usually put the inserts in the box at the top, middle and bottom.  This time we changed that and on the last one you  can see that the inserts actually stick up higher than the box edge!

This is where the inserts stick above the top of the box.

These didn’t fit in the normal envelope but we put them in a 6×9.

 

Let me show you and your friends how to make these fun box cards! Schedule your girls night out today!!!

 

Thanks for coming to read our blog!!!

Birthday Cards

We have had a couple of birthdays in our family so today we are showing you the cards we made. One was for our granddaughter that likes sloths and the other was for our son-in-law.

 

Our granddaughter’s is a variation on the pull card.

More Cards

After we posted the birthday cards we had some people ask us to make them one of the giraffe cards. So we didn’t have the same papers but we think they came out good! Also one of them wanted a penguin as well!

Fun Cards

We had a couple of birthdays that we wanted to make cards for. One was for our daughter and one was for a dear friend. We saw this card on the internet and wanted to do it! The problem was the same as we always have, doing it by hand is too time consuming! So to the Cricut we went!

Steve enjoys figuring this kind of thing out and so he got it into the software so we could try it out! It still needs a few things made better but it worked great for the first try! 

 

It is a pull card and when you pull it the things stand up! Hopefully you can see that in the photos!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one is for our daughter, she loves giraffes!

Happy Birthday Popup Card

This is Steve.

I wanted to make my dad a birthday card.  I didn’t want to use a normal card.  I thought of a popup card.  I looked at the box popup that we have used before.  So I went searching on the internet for something.

I found a pop up balloon card that looked simple. 

Instructions can be found here http://paperproud.blogspot.com/2011/03/tutorial-3d- pop-up-balloon-card.html

I love to have the Cricut cut and score so I put in the design into Cricut and found some paper.  My handwriting is bad, so I had Cricut Write the big message.

Now you need to fold on the score lines, so you will have a base for the popups to set in.

Top view

Side view, the base of the popups set here in the middle.

Then you can decorate the front

And make the popups.  Use plastic acetate strips so they are see through.  You can use plastic from trays you might get rolls or vegetables in.  Just trying to be frugal.

This is what it looks like from the top

The decoration ideas came from Lu.  She is the creative one.  I had a lot of emotion in making this one.  It is his 99th birthday.

Thanks

Steve

 

I love when Steve finds an idea he wants to do! This one was pretty simple for him! We all remember the ZigZag village from a few years back!!!
