Butterfly Clasp w/ Center Gatefold Design!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create an elegant Easter card using the beautiful Ai Butterfly Clasp Die Set (5590). This clasp was designed to work with the Ai Journal Series. It is perfectly sized to provide the ideal closure for your Ai journals. However, we are going to use it in a fun and different way today!

We will start with the card base using some white 100lb cardstock and for patterned paper we will be using some pretty lavender stripes for the card base, and we will be using the lavender florals for the gatefold portion of this card.

I will give you all of the measurements for the layers and gatefold in today’s video. Also, for the front flaps of the gatefold we will be using the Ai Journal Cover & Bookmark Dies (5723) to create the pretty scalloped edge.

Now for the inside of the gatefold we will use the Ai Nested Heart Dies (5721) and then we will add the “Easter Blessings” sentiment to a fun little banner using the Ai Journal Template Dies (5543). This set has several fun dies for all of your card making needs!

Finally, to complete the elegant look of this card let’s add a few sparkly lavender gems!

This card would be wonderful for a wedding, thank you and sympathy card as well!

Whimsical Flowers Bookmarks!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

I’ve got an easy and fun project for you today! We will be creating some pretty bookmarks using the brand new Ai Whimsical Flowers Set (5797). This pretty little floral stamp set will coordinate with all of your watercolor journal dies and stamps.

This card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge called “Feeling Blue”. For this challenge you can create any project that feature blues…any blue color will do! Please join us in this fun challenge by submitting your project….we would love to see what you create!

Let’s begin by die cutting our bookmarks onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock using the Ai Journal Cover & Bookmark Die Set (5723). This set has several dies that can be used to create your journal pages and some fun borders. It also includes two bookmark dies that we will be using today!

We can stamp a nice selection of flowers onto the bottom of each bookmark using the Versafine Onyx Black ink and then begin our coloring.

The coloring will be done using the beautiful Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencil Sets. These pencils are so easy to use and the colors coordinate with all of the other Tim Holtz products that you may already have in your stash….the ink pads, sprays, paints, etc.

I’ll give you a few different ideas for how to use these pencils to get a variety of looks!

Next let’s add some color around the edges of each bookmark using the Distress Oxide Inks in Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean. We can also spatter the bookmarks for a bit more interest.

Now we can add some stitching around the edges using a permanent black pen.

Finally let’s tie on some baker’s twine in the coordinating colors. These would be a great gift for your favorite reader along with a good book!
