How To’sday | Door Hangers by Carrie Labani

How To’sday | Door Hangers by Carrie Labani

It’s that favorite time of week again when we are treated with another fantastic tutorial brought to us by one of you! This week our tutorial is brought to us by Carrie Labani. I love altered door hangers and summer is the perfect time to make them. With babies and summer and kiddos playing a cute door hanger on the front door announcing that baby is sleeping, or it’s quiet time and friends can’t play is such a great idea! Or you could make a darling hanger like Carrie did simply to spice up your child’s bedroom door.

_____________________________

This is a great project for your kids or grandkids. I first made on for my new baby but then my 4-year-old saw it and needed to have one. I purchased the door hanger from my local craft store for under a dollar so it was also a great bargain project too!

Steps:

  • Cover the door hanger on one side with paper. I used a liquid glue. Let dry and cut out with a craft knife.

  • Cover the other side and cut out again. Now both sides should be covered with the hole in the middle all cut out. Then use a small ink pad to ink all the edges. I like how this gives it a nice finished look.

  • Add strips of paper on the bottom of both sides. I chose different patterns for each sides.

  • Add different titles to both sides. I went with Big Sis and Girls only but Naptime, Big Bro, their name or anything you like will work. Mix up your fonts or use premade stickers like I did for my Girls only side.

  • Embellish with flowers, chipboard, Stickles, whatever you like and you’re done!

Sassafras Stitch Blossoms | Monday Card Madness #40

Sassafras Stitch Blossoms | Monday Card Madness #40

Okay girls, bear with me while I shout from the rooftops exactly how much I love today’s steal! Not only are they beautiful, cute, simple, stunning and colorful, but today’s steal the Sassafras Stitch Blossoms are the perfect addition to so many different projects. I had such a great time using them on today’s card sketch that I couldn’t stop at making one card but had to make five!

The first card I made, became the inspiration for the remaning cards. I loved the flow of the design of the paper and recreated it with my remaining cards.

Now here’s a little fun tidbit — when I was creating cards I quite literally reached blindly into my paper kit collections and pulled out random paper kits to work with. The Stitch Blossoms are so amazing — in the fact that they come in such a variety of colors that I found flowers to match with every collection that I randomly picked to work with.

If that isn’t the sign of a perfect embellishment to add to your collection then I certainly don’t know what is.  :)

Don’t forget to have this week’s card sketch posted to our Facebook fan page or your own personal blog by
August 5th at 11:59 pm in order to be eligible for the July random drawing.

For those of you that participated in the second card swap, I can’t even begin to tell you how fantastic they are. They will be heading out to each of you in the next week so be on the lookout for some happy mail.

If you missed out on the most recent card swap, don’t fear! I can’t help myself and want to organize another swap right away! Here are the details.

  • Create 10 cards. They can all be the same or each can be different.
  • All cards must include an envelope.
  • Cards must be received to the ScrapbookSteals warehouse by August 31st. (ScrapbookSteals, Attn: Card Swap, 2181 California, #400, SLC, UT  84104
  • Once your cards have been sent in the mail, please send me an email to kristy@stealnetwork.com, to let me know that I need to be on the lookout for your amazing creations. I will then randomly re-distribute the cards and mail back 10 different cards to each participant.

Don’t forget the ongoing challenge to send out joy! I know I need to get busy and get writing some cards myself. I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Thank you all for a fantastic birthday week! We are inspired by the incredible talent and creativity of our community everyday. We ? you!

Let’s bond with the iBond!

Let’s bond with the iBond!

Can you believe it? For our birthday we are soooooo excited to be bringing to you today’s steal, the iBond by Imaginisce. Imaginisce has totally rocked the innovation concept yet again. With its cordless design, now you can take your hot glue crafting projects anywhere. I can see it now—making hair bands—on a raft—in the middle of a lake. Okay well maybe that is a little far-fetched, but it is possible with the iBond.

First of all I used the smooshed button technique in action and made this card. I love how the white glue oozes out the sides of the button to give it just a little bit of character!

Next, I hit the dollar store to load up with some simple items to alter.

Here is what they turned in to!

We’d just like to take a quick minute to tell each and every one of you thank you for making our ScrapbookSteals family what it is. We can’t imagine celebrating our birthday without you. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this week as much as we have. Here’s to many more years of stealing together.

Be sure to check in later — we might still have a little *surprise* up our sleeves!
