Bloom & Grow Cards


Welcome!  Although I love looking out over my snow covered yard, and am thrilled we had a White Christmas, I am not a fan of icy, snow covered roads to get me to and fro of my destinations.  Nevertheless, it is pretty from my window!  So on this frosty day I had great fun with my January Stamp of the Month set, Bloom & Grow. 



This is such a cheerful set!  The large stamp is designed to resemble a typical seed package.  The sentiments and little icons are delightful!  I'm using this set for a collection of thinking of you and Valentine cards.  




Raspberry Cardstock was used to anchor my "seed packet" stamped with Archival Black on White Daisy Cardstock.   Raspberry Ink was used to stamp the sentiments on both of my cards shown. To add a subtle touch of sparkle, I used my Clear Shimmer Brush and a few Bitty SparklesMy Colored Pencils got into the act as well!  

Papers from the Adventure Fundamental Collection are used in our Cherish the Good 'Thymes' card shown above.  For our Grow Your Own Magic card, paper from the Whimsy Fundamental Collection is used for our base.  

Enjoy!


All materials used (and so much more) are available from me at Papercraftingwithgayle.ctmh.com.  

Thank you so much for visiting!  You are appreciated! 

Until next time --

Thank you so much for visiting!  I enjoy hearing from you! 

Have a wonderful day!

HELLO FRIENDS & WELCOME TO 2018!



It's National Papercrafting Month and I'm excited to get started by sharing this beautiful monogram letter.  I decided to make the "G" for display in my crafting room.  I love it -- the flowers, size, ease of creating and gorgeous rose gold.

It is built upon an incredibly sturdy chipboard base, just shy of 12 inches.  You could easily hang with a command strip, prop against the wall on the mantel, display in a frame as I have, backed with a sheet of Bashful cardstock.  

I recommend using two types of adhesive to create this.  A tape runner adhesive to adhere the paper letter to the chipboard, and Liquid Glass to make the flowers and adhere them to your letter.  


Each letter of the alphabet, as well as the &, is available separately.  Photo instructions are included in each easy to assemble kit.  I decided not to use all of the flowers included in my kit, and plan to use them in future crafting projects.  😊

I love how the art of papercrafting allows us to discover our creativity as it flows from home decor to card making and scrapbooking.  

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas with Silver & Gold




With the Advent Season upon us, and Christmas approaching quickly, I love how this joyous season encompasses all of our wonderful senses!  Put on some Christmas music or tune into a Christmas show, and get your pages ready for your photos - or for gift giving!

I'm excited to show you my "Merry Christmas" layout made using the beautiful Silver & Gold Creative Collection.  It is available through December 31 or while supplies last.  

Your layout will quickly come together using the cutting guide included with your purchase at papercraftingwithgayle.ctmh.com

I really love and appreciate the versatility of the Silver & Gold Creative Collection.  It is simply elegant with gorgeous gold foil accents and a black, pebble, pewter and white daisy palette.  Lovely!    


Our Merry Christmas title is made of Silver Glitter chipboard die cuts included in the Silver & Gold Complements.  



The Peace on Earth Picture My Life Card, included with this collection, gives you the perfect place to jot down layout details -- the who, what, when, and where.  You and yours will be so happy you took this little step.  For if you do not tell your story, who will?  Or worse, years from now, will you and/or yours know who these people are? 


To add a finishing touch to this layout, I used a mix of the Complements, which includes coordinating stickers, silver and gold glitter die cuts, and two 1-inch self stick badge buttons, as well as the pretty Gold Shimmer Tape.    
I love how the neutral colors of black and white absolutely come to life with the sprinkling of gold accents.  How festive! 

Each of the components of the Workshop Your Way Kit are also available separately. 


During December, the beautiful  Through the Year calendar workshop is available as a kit, while supplies last.  Detailed cutting instructions are included when you purchase this discounted kit from me at Papercraftingwithgayle.ctmh.com.  I look forward to showing you some of my monthly pages.

Silver & Gold:  Merry and Bright!




Welcome!  Wow!  I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone!  Thankfully the excitement continues with heartwarming gatherings among family and friends throughout our Christmas preparations.  I love how this joyous season encompasses all of our senses!  

I'm excited to show you my "Merry and Bright" layout made using the beautiful Silver & Gold Creative Collection.  It is a limited edition, available through December 31 or while supplies last.  

The Silver & Gold Creative Collection is simply elegant with gorgeous gold foil accents and a black, pebble, pewter and white daisy palette.  Lovely!  Although four of the papers are designed specifically with Christmas in mind, the others could easily host New Year's, engagement or anniversary photos.  In fact, the simple black lines on white shown here, could even be the background for school layouts!  I really love and appreciate this versatility!  

Our Merry and Bright title is a one of the included Picture My Life cards.  So quick and easy!  I added a few sparkling Gold Glitter Gems, and Silver & Gold Complements to finish it off.  

My layout is designed to feature eight photos along with the ever important journaling.  Please include this element of telling YOUR story within your memory books.  Hide it under a photo with a Flip-Flap if you'd like, and feature more photos!  So many options!  
To add a little finishing touch to this layout, I used a mix of the Complements, which includes coordinating stickers, silver and gold glitter die cuts, and two 1-inch self stick badge buttons, as well as the pretty Gold Glitter Gems.    
I love how the neutral colors of black and white absolutely come to life with the sprinkling of gold accents.  How festive! 

This beautiful Silver & Gold Workshop Your Way Kit is shown here.  If you'd like to create more with this collection, pick up the coordinating paper pack, which includes 3 sheets of Gold Glitter, Black, Pewter and White Daisy Cardstock.  Each of the components of the Workshop Your Way Kit are also available separately.  Remember, for any of the Workshop Your Way kits, when you order directly  from me, you will be prompted to download a cutting guide for pages and cards!  😊  Woo Hoo!  Scrapbooking and Stamping -- faster, simpler and easier!


Next week I'll wrap up my walk through this lovely Silver & Gold Collection.  

During December, the beautiful  Through the Year calendar workshop is available as a kit, while supplies last.  Detailed cutting instructions are included when you purchase this discounted kit from me at Papercraftingwithgayle.ctmh.com.  I look forward to showing you some of my monthly pages.
