Project Instructions:

Berry Cafe CD Holder Mini AlbumOther products: White and Black Cardstock, Craft Knife, Black Sharpie Felt Tip Pen, 1/8" Foam Tape, 1/4" Score tape, Gold, Red, Green and Silver Sequence pieces, large 1" button,

Watch this YouTube for a video presentation of this project: https://youtu.be/QAwmDQYGMY4.

Instructions: The Mini Album uses HCFP1-435-1 Pocket/Flip Fold Insert A (12.0" x 5.5").
The CD Holder uses HCFP1-435-1 Pocket/Flip Fold Insert B (12.0" x 7.75"). Fold and crease Pocket/Flip Fold Insert A to create the mini album book. Cover the area that will be the front of album with white cardstock. Create the latch piece from a 1" x 3" strip of pink gingham patterned paper from the Paper collection. Trim the corners off one end of the latch piece. Adhere a small magnet to the back side of the trimmed end of the latch piece. Adhere this to black cardstock with the magnet in between, and trim the black cardstock to make a mat for the latch. Score the latch piece at 1" and 1 1/2". Adhere the end of the latch without the magnet to the back side of the album, allowing the end with the magnet to wrap around to the front of the album. Cover the back of the album with decorative paper from the Paper Collection.

To make the shaker window for the front of the album, start with the large square die from the Cut Mat Create 2B Die set. Create a window in a 6" square section of paper from the Paper Collection that has the pocket image. Watch this video to learn how to cut the decorative window opening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP3wVYISMz4. Using a black Sharpie, outline the cut edges. Adhere a 5" square of Clear Cardstock to the back side of the decorative window. Die cut 5 of the pre-colored bee images from the paper collection using the Sweet as Honey “Single Bee” die. Die cut the pre-colored image of the large white blossom with a bee using the coordinating “Busy Bee” die. Adhere the blossom image to the front of the mini album. Make a small pile of the die-cut bees and sequence pieces in the center of album cover. Surround the pile with Foam Tape to create “walls” to keep the pieces in. Position and adhere a magnet to the album front in the area where it will meet up with the magnet on the latch. Adhere the 6" square decorative window over the pile using foam tape.

Cut a 6" x 1 1/4" strip of black cardstock and make two score lines, 1/2" apart, down the center length of the strip to create a seam for the album. Adhere the strip to the seam of the album. Using the “Paper Edge” die from the Border Essentials Die set, cut two borders from black card stock and adhere on each side of the seam.

Cover the remaining areas of the album with card panels and decorative paper from the Paper Collection. Add a large button over the closure end of the latch to camouflage any bulkiness from the magnets.

To create the CD Holder, fold and crease Pocket/Flip Fold Insert B. Cover all sides with decorative paper from the Paper Collection. Locate a 6" x 6" card panel from the Paper Collection and cut away the center using the large square from the Cut Mat Create Die. Cover the back side of the card panel with Clear Cardstock. Add strong adhesive to three of the card panel edges. Adhere the panel to the inside of the CD Holder. Make sure the side without adhesive is positioned next to the center fold so your CD can be slid in at that point.

Finish the project by adding photos, journaling cards, clips, buttons, etc. to the album to decorate to your taste. Insert the finished CD holder into the front flap of the mini album.

Instructions: Start by making a 5" x 7" card out of white card stock and cover with a layer of Red and Pink Card Stock. Each layer will need to be cut 1/4" smaller than the previous layer. Top with a die cut from the 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy Die and then using a sharp craft knife cut out the layers of Red, Pink and White card stock so that you have a window.

Cover the inside of the card with a matching piece of card stock from the Berry Cafe Paper Collection and then attach your image of the berry stand centered in the window.

Stamp the Berry Blossoms Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock with Expresso Truffle and cut with the matching die. Before shaping the flowers with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, distress the flower petals with Memento Angel Pink and after you have created your flowers dust them with Opaque Sparkle Vintage Pink Glitter before adding some Diamond Stickles for a little extra sparkle. Die cut 2 of the pre-colored blooming berry images from the sheet of pre-colored images using the matching die. In behind the flowers on top left and bottom right, attach one of these pre-colored images and finish with a pretty bow and enjoy.

Stamp Mat Pad
Spring Bling Prills - 12 Pack
Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear

Project Instructions:

Other products: Papers: Neenah Solar White, Recollections White, Bazzills Ruby Slipper; Inks: VersaFine Onyx Black, Shabby Shutters Distress; Accessories: Lace, red trim, 1/4" and 1/8" Scor-Tape, Arrow Border Punch (EK Success), ribbon, Scotch Mounting Tape, Bow-Easy Tool, water spritzer

Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdsIOVMXjIQ to learn how to create flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Instructions: Basket measures 4" x 4" and is 8 1/2" high including handle. I used this http://wenchespapirverden.blogspot.com/2013/05/tutorial.html tutorial to make this basket. I converted the measurements from her metric ones to the following: cut Ruby Slipper 12" x 12", score at 4" and 8", turn and repeat scoring. Follow her instructions for cutting the flaps on each side.

Cut the large (12" x 12") designer paper sheet (pictured) as follows: 5 - 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and 2 - 7/8" x 12". Cut the 2 small (6" x 6") designer paper sheets of the same design as follows: 12 - 7/8" x 4 1/8". Ink all edges of designer papers with Shabby Shutters.

Cut white cardstock as follows: 12 - 1 3/4" x 4 1/8" and 1 - 1 3/4" x 12". Punch all long edges of the white pieces with the edge punch on both sides. (Note: the width of these pieces will depend on the edge punch you use as stated in her tutorial. The punch I used needed to be 1 3/4" wide in order to be 1 1/4" wide after punching. You will need to test this out on scrap paper in order to get the fit you want for your edge punch.)

Glue the 5 designer paper squares to the inside of the basket leaving two top, center sides unglued to insert the handles in. Glue the white and designer paper strips together centering them.

Follow the tutorial instructions for adhering the short strips to the outside of the basket sides. Assemble the basket and adhere together using Scor-Tape. Finish adhering the strips on outside of basket per the tutorial. Add handle with Scor-Tape inserting in unglued space between the designer paper and basket side. Add lace and trim on top edge of basket using Scor-Tape. Cut Ruby Slipper cardstock 3/8" wide and add to bottom of basket using 1/8" Scor-Tape to give the basket a finished look on the bottom. Make 2 multi-loop bows with red gingham ribbon and add to base of handle on each side using glues dots.

Stamp Berry Blossom Cling on Solar White with Black Onyx stamping off the color on scrap paper first to get a softer shade of black. Select two small blooms, spritz lightly with water on backs and shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Once dry, add Heart of Gold Prills to centers using Art Institute Glue. Glue to bow centers once dry using glue dots.

Sweet Memories With You
Products Used:

Berry Blossoms Die
Berry Blossoms Cling Stamp Set

Project Instructions:

Sweet Memories With YouOther products: White, black, red cardstock, yellow stickles, foam dots, glue

Instructions: Take a 6" x 12" white cardstock. Cut a piece of designer paper which has strips as a border and dots in size 11 3/4" x 5 3/4". Adhere this paper on top of 12" x 6" white base. Fold this layered base in half keeping designer paper side in and this will be your 6" x 6" card. Take 3" x 4" red thin paper and zigzag fold and create a little fan, which is used as a cute roof of this cafe scene so adhere both sides of this fan in the middle where card fold is. Diecut this cute couple image from the collection pad using Berry Cafe Die, adhere this image using foam dots and adhere under the roof. Diecut some white blossoms and some of the strawberry images using mentioned dies and create a beautiful cluster around the cafe scene. Because of this fan roof inside the card, this card is bit hard to close so we need to create a band. Take 1" x 12" Red pattern paper from the collection and create a band. Adhere some blossoms on top.

For the front create a layer using Red and paper which matches to inside paper. Diecut the image of milkshake cup and adhere that on one side using foam dots and add some blossoms around. Take a sentiment from the collection and add on one side backing with black paper. Add some yellow stickles as a flower center.

Good morning HC, first congratulation to the DT finalist, you all do beautiful work and will be fabulous additions to the team. I really look forward to seeing your stuff and recreating your stuff, lol. Now HC the sneak peek of the Under The Sea collection, OH MY GRACIOUS!!!!! I have the last 13 collections and from day one I feel in love with the HC brand. But this Under The Sea collection is absolutely and by far the most beautiful of them all. I can not wait for my collection to come. I am just so excited Ms. Nikki demos were just beautiful as always, especially the sail boat. I have to tell you that I have cancelled all my other cardmaking clubs just so that I can have the money to get my HC collections every month. I always say how will they top this and every month you amaze me! Thank you. Now to make some hydrangea's, great video Emma Lou.

Beautiful and inspirational ideas. Your designer's are great. Wish the Scrapbook Convention would come back to Opryland Hotel or Louisville KY. Your classes were the best. God Bless You!

Linda Knox Said...
Great video Emma Lou and the card is beautiful. I think this technique could also be used to create lilacs by changing the shape of the base for the flowers. Just love the look. Thanks so much for sharing this.
