Lori Whitlock May 2018 Blog Hop



Hello crafty friends and welcome to my piece of the Lori Whitlock May blog hop! You should have arrived here from Michelle's blog.

My project today is one of the brand new cuts that just came out in the store today! It is the "Happy Graduation" flexi card that is part of a new set of flexi cards by Lori. I just love how it is a stand up dimensional card but also lays flat so it can be mailed easy peasy!

LW Graduate Cap Favor Box


Hi crafty peeps!! I'm here with you today with a tutorial on how to assemble and create the new Lori Whitlock Graduate Cap Favor Box. I made this box for my niece who will soon be receiving her Masters in Early Education and I couldn't be more proud of her!

This fun and adorable cut is available at the Lori Whitlock store here or at the Silhouette Store here. I also added some of the beautiful Lori Whitlock flowers after seeing a lot of graduates are now decorating the top of their caps which is a fabulous idea!! Wished that was a thing when I graduated!!


Alrighty, let's get started! I resized the original file to create a bigger sized box.


Since each piece was so big I used 2 sheets of cardstock...1 for the top piece and 1 for the bottom piece.



After I had each piece cut out, I folded each cut line.

The bottom piece is easily assembled by adhering the gluetabs to the inside of the box.

For the top piece, start with the 2 sides with the extra gluetabs and adhere them down to the base of the hat. Follow along as I step you through it in the following pictures.



And this is what the underside of the top piece should look like after you've adhered all pieces down.

Now comes the fun part of decorating the top of the Graduate Cap!


That's all from me today! Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and Congrats to those graduates!

LW I'm a GIRL, what's your superpower?


Hi scrappy friends and happy Monday! I'm here with you today with a layout that I had to create as soon as I saw this phrase cut from Lori Whitlock. I think it is adorable and it was perfect for this picture of my daughter and her friends. I also brought in a couple more cuts like the sweet little bird, cute dog, and flower. I also used the bright and beautiful papers from Let's Be Mermaids.

MCS Tag Tutorial


Hello friends! Today I have a simple tag tutorial! I love adding tags to my layouts and cards so I wanted to share my thought process on creating some great tags.

For the first tag, I wanted to use that great Heidi Swapp Minc circular stencil that comes in the My Creative Scrapbook April creative kit. I have been on a kick of watching all of the great Jennifer McGuire YouTube videos...she is amazing when it comes to stamps, inks, and stencils!! I was completely wowed when I saw her "Rotating Stencils" video (click here to see) and knew I had to try it! 

I pulled out my Distress Oxide ink pads in the colors of Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick and my Moonlight White pigment ink pad. I started off with a 4" x 6" piece of smooth white cardstock and followed Jennifer's instructions from the video. I used the darker color first and ended up with the white as the top layer. After the inks were dry I cut my paper into a tag.


Here is a look at the 3 tags bases before I added embellishments...


Here is a close up of the tag that I used the Rotating Stencil technique on. I used 2 strips of washi tape on the bottom but one of the pieces I cut in half length wise. The "choose joy" piece is from the ephemera pack that comes with the kit.


The next 2 tags were just pattern papers for the base tag and embellishments from the Creative kit.



And here are the projects that I used my tags on...




I hope this tutorial gets those creative juices flowing and gets you to creating some tags of your own using any one of the beautiful Spring themed from My Creative Scrapbook.
