Believe In Magic with Scrapping For Less

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my final Scrapping For Less project for May 2019. I had so much fun making this, other than the video that I tried, and it stopped working half through.


How I made this fun Magic Color Slider Card... without the die...

  1. Take an 8.5" x 11" sheet cardstock, score at 5.5" on the short and 4.25" on the long.



2. Cut away the top left panel as this will be used later for your slider.


3. If making your card portrait as I did, Cut .25" off along the outside of the right panels.


4. With the remaining lower left panel score in .25" and cut the top and bottom corners at an angle.

5. Decide if you want a Circle, Square, Rectangle or whatever hole for your window, I went with Rectangle  using my stitched rectangle dies. I folded my panels so that the bottom left which is what would be the top panel would be cut with the die and ran it through my die cutter.


6. For me at this point I cut in .25 from each side on the top right so that it would say down easily.

7. I then folded the upper right down over the upper left, and folded the lower left over to cover the same, to put the panel that was upper right in between the two.

8. Using score tape on the little flap I closed it up by tucking it into the back panel. making a big pocket with a panel in the middle.


9. Cut a piece of acetate to be 5.25" x 3.75" and using a piece of score tape attach to the center top of the panel we had cut away in step 2 which I cut to the same measurements.

10. Stamp the image on the acetate using Staz-On ink in the same place it will be on the inner panel. For I stamped on the acetate, then positioned the piece I had already cut and colored in the same spot so they lined up.


11. Using pattern paper out of the "Believe" paper pack I used my stitched rectangle dies to make frames for the front of my card and panels for the slider part as well.


12. Using a tab die from a Lawn Fawn set I made a pull tab and attached with score tape to the top of the slider panel and attached some bakers twine to that for a pull string.


13. Putting the card together at this point was easy, I slid the panel with the pattern paper and colored image behind the white panel and the acetate panel in front. It is all hidden by the frames on the front of the card. After some stamp surgery I stamped the sentiment on the cloud and attached it to the top of the frame to complete my card.

Day 3 Sneak Peek SFL FOTM

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my project for the day 3 Sneak Peek of the May 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit. Get your order in now so you have it before it sells out. Be sure to head over to Scrapping for Less to grab yours!


This card was made using paper from one collection, stamps/twine from another, tag from another and sentiment from yet another. I had so fun putting this together and really hope you enjoy. 

I stamped the open book image and cut using my Scan N Cut. I then stamped the lantern, fireflies and mushroom with GinaK Amalgam ink and colored with alcohol markers. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark and heat embossed using Gold embossing powder. 

I took one sheet of 6"x6" pattern paper and used both sides of it for this card. One side is my background and the other are the pretty flowers pocket along the bottom. I used Kraft colored cardstock from my stash for layers and my card base so that it was all brought together with the Kraft tag. The tag is a bookmark that can pull out of the pocket to use later. 

The May Hop is this coming Saturday at 12:00 am. Be sure to check back and see what the team has in store for you. And Be sure to head over to Scrapping for Less to sign up for your kit today!

Let's Get Kraken with Scrapping For Less

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here on my new blog and ready to get Kraken. using this great stamp set by Newton's Nook, and other supplies from Scrapping For Less, I had some fun crafty time putting this together for you to enjoy.

Nuvo Liquid Glue Gina K Amalgam Ink "Black"
Newton's Nook "Message In A Bottle" Stamp Set
Distress Oxide inks in Various Colors:Distress Oxides in Various Colors:
Broken China, Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade MFT Radiating Rays Stencil Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Ocean Dies

Using the Amalgam Ink I stamped out the images of the Kraken, Bottle and Scroll. Using my Scan n Cut I cut the images and then the bottle again from a card panel.

Using the water layers from the Shadowbox Ocean Set and stitched rectangle dies I cut the panel to the exact size I wanted and then started playing with my Oxides. First I used Salty Ocean and Broken China to blend on the bottom of the main panel, and the 3 water layers. I the varied with the Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral to create the sunrise. Once satisfied with the blend, I grabbed my Radiating Rays Stencil and the Squeezed Lemonade again to get those rays just right. I used Nuvo liquid clue and adhered a panel of acetate to the inside of the top panel, I then adhered one of the water layers. I added some foam tape around the sides and put in some sequins from my stash. I had already added the scroll with the "Let's Get Kraken" sentiment to the panel of my cardbase, so that it would show through when the main panel was attached. Once the top panel was added to the base with the shaker intact, I was able to add the 2nd and 3rd water layers along with the Kraken in its rightful place among the waves. After adding a few water drops to activate the Oxides, my card was complete.

How To Make a Happy Birthday Card

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with a Shaker Birthday card I made.
To make this card I used a layering stamp set to stamp out Happy Birthday using a rainbow scheme using LDRS inks. I then used the matching dies to cut the two words out. The inside of the white layer is cut out using MFT Wonky Square Die.
I used a die set from Crafters Companion to cut out the party hat to make the shaker. The on the inside is purple glitter from the Tiny Bottle Glitter.
All my layers, other than the foam tape for the shaker section of the party hat are put together using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever .
With all the birthday's coming up in my family, I will be making quite a few cards, and this quick and simple card will be quite easy to replicate.

I hope you have enjoyed this project today, as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you.

I've Heard... Picket Fence and and Scrapping For Less

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a project I had a lot of fun creating.
This Picket Fence "Sympathetic Unicorn" stamp set came in perfect timing. I had a coworker who has been down a bit lately, not like herself. While at work the day after this stamp set arrived I started thinking about what I could do, and I came up with this card. The next day it was on her desk when she arrived and now it hangs on her corkboard.

To make this cute card, I first stamped the Unicorn and Cloud out with Gina K Designs Black Amalgam Ink. I knew I would be using Alcohol Markers and this is a safe ink to use. I alternated colors with my markers to color the mane in a rainbow scheme.

The sentiment is stamped inside the card using the same Amalgam ink.
The background pattern paper sheet is from Bo Bunny "Believe" collection.
I stamped the sentiment on a sheet of vellum using the Amalgam ink and heat embossed using Nuvo Jet Black embossing powder. Using strategically placed liquid Multi-Medium Matte under the sentiment, cloud and unicorn
I was able to adhere the Vellum without it being seen. I finished the card off with some "Love Potion" Nuvo Dream Drops.

Spring Coffee Blog Hop with Scrapping For Less

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. It is that time of year and I am so excited. The Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop has arrived...

Today with my card was made using product from Scrapping For Less including... Pink & Main's Mer-mazing Coffee Stamp Set, which I stamped all over my panel and colored using various colors of alcohol markers. I then did the background using Coffee and Mocha colored alcohol markers to give it a stained look, as if the cups spilled all over.
The sentiment panel is from Echo Park's COFFEE paper pad, which I used one of the cut a-parts and popped it up on some foam adhesive.
A quick fun card to get this hop started.
