ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday with Team B | February 26 2016

Hi there and happy Friday!

We have a brand new sketch to share with you today and even though there are just a few days to play, we hope you will share a bit of your weekend with us!

Here is your sketch....


And here is your gorgeous Team B inspiration!



Here is a run down of our Sketch-y Friday rules.  Just link up your creations in our sidebar to be entered into a random draw for our monthly prize.    You have until February 29th, at midnight to participate in any of this month's sketch challenges, each linkup tool will remain open until that date!  You may take some artistic license with your adaptation of the sketches, however if you choose to use a double page sketch for a single page layout you may only enter once per sketch, not once per side.

If you are playing along with more than one challenge you will need to link each of them up via a separate blog post for the link up tool to work. (International participants may be required to pay some shipping fees.)  Good luck, we cannot wait to see what you create!

 *note - If you are playing along using Flickr the team will no longer be leaving comments, due to changes in Flickr policies and passwords.  However, we will be checking out your entries for sure and you are definitely eligible for the prize draw. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

DIY Gift Bag | Tutorial

Hello there!


How about a quick and easy DIY gift bag?  I needed a smaller gift bag the other day and didn't have one.  But I do have a plethora of paper! 


So I grabbed this pretty polka dot sheet from the Amy Tangerine's Better Together paper pad and got busy making one.


First you will want to fold over your paper a few inches.


And then you will fold the other side over so that there is enough of an overlap to add adhesive.


Your paper should be looking like this.


Now run some adhesive inside the seam and adhere the two sides together.  Be careful not to get adhesive on the inside, you do not want to seal your bag closed in the middle.


Now you will have  basically a large tube.


Now fold up one end a couple of inches and score.


Open up the flap that you just created and press one side towards the middle.


Repeat for the second side.


Next you will fold up the bottom flap.


And fold down the top flap.


Adhere the two flaps together and you are finished.


So this is basically your finished bag, but of course we have to have some fun!


So once you fill your little gift bag, we can add some embellishments.


You can fold or roll down the top to seal your bag.  Which ever suits your fancy.


I opted for some neat folds.


You could of course, just staple or adhere your bag closed.  However, a couple of punched holes gies you the option of tying on some ribbon.


I had one little scrap of this pretty striped ribbon that I have been hanging onto forever.  Probably because it was meant for this project. ;)


I dug through my scrap die cuts bin (Do you have one of these? You really should they are perfect for crafting in a hurry! I use mine for cards, tags and gift packages, not to mention layouts.) and found a few pretty pieces that I could combine to make a quicky tag.


And just like that we are done, and our little gift bag is all ready to give away!

DIY Mini Stamps with Wood Veneers | Tutorial

Hello friends, Sorry for the delay in getting this tip up for you this morning!  Family life, snow and a lousy internet connection have been dictating my schedule these last few days! But I am here now sharing a fun little trick to make your own mini stamps using wood veneer shapes!


Other than some fun wood shapes, you will need adhesive and a wine bottle cork.


Simply adhere your wood veneer onto the end of your cork, creating a handle for your "stamp".


If your cork is in good shape you can attach a wood shape to either end.


Now ink up your newly created stamp and have fun.  The wood piece will initially absorb lots of the ink so get it nice and juicy for better stamping coverage.

Cheers!
