July 12, 2021 at 2:00 pm 70 comments

Hello everyone. Hope you’re well. Today sees something doubly new. New products and a new crafting kit. You know sometimes you don’t want to choose, you just want something all picked out and organised ready for you! Well the Craft Your Life project kit is exactly that. (all the following links are affiliate ones).

As with every blog hop; there’s a start.. at Altenew’s Card Blog and you might have come from Daniel Diaz’s blog, so welcome!

I’ve a few projects to show you – here’s the first one.

It’s a note holder- all you need is watercolour paper/cardstock, some substantial cardstock for the backing, the lovely new Kit plus the Artists Watercolour Half Pan Set. It makes a lovely gift. Here’s how – firstly watercolour after white heat embossing.

Add score lines around the image about 2cm around the edges and bottom.

Next use the matching die to cut out the edges..

Next, add glue to the middle portion of the reverse..plus the back of the turned up flaps ( cutting off the corners too).

Now adhere onto some substantial cardstock. Add some pieces of watercolour cardstock to either side of the embossing folder and stack them into the holder.

You can get the Craft Your Life Project Kit whilst stocks last or sign up for the monthly subscription.

I used the embossing folder and the matching stencil to create a half and half card. Just by stencilling, then embossing, die cutting the image and then trimming it in half and stacking it on a small card base. The embossing folder creates such amazing texture.

    You are innovative in all of your designs for this hop. I am TRULY inspired! I really like the idea of the notecard holder and can see many of my embossing folders put to a new use. 🙂 The half & half card is so unique. Did you adhere the embossed design to an acetate card base? And the tag you created is so soft and beautiful with the selective watercoloring technique you used. Thank you for sharing.

      What a lovely comment! No- the half and half card is simply attached to a card measuring roughly 4cm x 14cm. The card came about as I had a folded scrap I’d cut off another card base. Hope that makes sense! x
