Lori Whitlock October 2019 Blog Hop



Hello crafty friends and welcome to my part of the Lori Whitlock October blog hop! 

Halloween is right around the corner and what better way to treat your favorite spook than with a matching shaker card and treat box! This set is using one of the new Mason Jar Treat Box Happy Halloween (Lori's Shop, Silhouette Store) and the A2 Ghost Pop Dot Card (Lori's Shop, Silhouette Store).


These adorable little Mason jar cut files can be sized bigger to be able to fit more candy in it. Mine ended up to be 5" tall.


The layers in this card make it easy to create a shaker card. I simply added foam tape between the bottom and middle layer and added some purple, black, and white shiny sequins to create this fun and festive Halloween shaker card.

Fall Gable Boxes


Hello crafty friends! I'm here today to share some Fall goodies! I am so excited...Fall has begun!! So today I am sharing the 3D No Glue Tapered Side Gable Box (Lori's Shop, Silhouette Store) and how adorable it looks all decorated with the new My Favorite Fall collection.


These little boxes were easily put together and so much fun to decorate! There is just enough room on the front panel to add a sweet little animal chipboard piece, tag, and some enamel dots to make these boxes look inviting to open and reveal the Fall goodies you've placed inside!



Thanks for stopping by today and I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Fall season so far!

Lori Whitlock Fall Treat Bags


Hello friends! I'm here with you today to share a tutorial on one of the fabulous new box files that Lori Whitlock has created for us! This is the Gift Bag with Handle Scalloped (Lori's Shop, Silhouette Store) and I am going to show you how to add a front panel so that the treats show through. And since Fall is just around the corner I added a couple of Autumn icons from the Fall Icons set 2 (Lori's Shop, Silhouette Store). So if you're ready...let's get to crafting some Fall gift bags!


Open the Gift Bag with Handle Scalloped file...


and add the Fall Icon set. I only used the pumpkin and leaf so I deleted the others but the other 2 could easily be used as long as you're only adding the base layer.


At this point, you should place the icon and the scalloped handle on the front panel of the bag. You can size and arrange the icon you've chosen. With the handle in place, it gives you an idea of what size your icon should be.


Now that you've gotten you're icon placed and sized, slide the handle to the top. Click on the bag and ungroup the bag from the cut lines. This is a very important step! If this step is missed, it will turn the dotted cut lines into solid cut lines which will give you a bunch of strips of paper instead of a bag.


 Next, you want to click on the icon and while holding the shift button, click on the bag and click on "make compound path". It will make your bag clear but it still cuts the same. Now you will want to click on the bag and the cut lines and group them together. Now you are ready to cut.


Run your papers through your paper cutting machine. Now let's get to adhering the box together.


Adhere a piece of acetate over the icon space


Place your adhesive on the top panel of the bag and fold it down on itself


Now adhere the bag together


And adhere the scalloped handles to the front and back of the bag.


And decorate them! There are so many possibilities! I used My Favorite Fall collection to make and decorate my bags. All that's left to do is add a sweet treat to give to some you are grateful for!


That's all from me today! I hope this provides some great inspiration for your Fall projects!

LW 6x6 Birthday Wiper Card


Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm here with you today sharing an adorable new "surprise" birthday card from Lori Whitlock. She has put out a fabulous new collection of 6x6 Wiper Cards for Birthday and Christmas. I created the 6x6 Wiper Card Happy Birthday (Lori's Shop, Silhouette Design Store) one with her new My Favorite Fall collection. I have a sweet friend who has a birthday in October so I thought I would combine this cut and the new Fall papers to wish her a Happy Birthday!


 These cards are already adorable just from the front panel but when you slide it to the right there is a sweet balloon surprise that pops up! I added some white pen lines to the balloons to give it a look of dimension.


And there is a special back panel in the cut file for writing your message to the recipient. I added a stamped and foiled sentiment to add a little more pizzazz.


I love how this fabulous card turned out and ready to make some more! There will definitely be some given away at Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope everyone is enjoying the last of their Summer!
