Keepin' it Reel with La-La Land Crafts

Happy Friday!!  Today I am back with another fun card featuring products from the July 2021 La-La Land Crafts new release- Keepin' It Reel and some of the new dies and new paper from the release.  


I had so much fun creating this card and love how it has a bit of a comic strip feel to me.  I used 2 of the largest Scalloped Rectangles Dies doubled to create a slimline card.

I stamped the ducks on Copic Xpress It cardstock and colored with Copic Markers

Ducks: N0, N1, N2, N3, R20
Beak, feet and fish: YR04, YR07, YR68, Y15
Fishing Pole: E31, E33, E35, E47
Water: B05, BG15
White Gel Pen

I used the Under the Sea Die to create the pond for my cute little duck to fish in, and added some of the fish from the Little Fishes Die Set to the pond. I also added a few around the card.

I used the Here, Fishy Fish Background Stamp Set to the Double Stitched Rectangles and then used the Scalloped Rectangles Dies to mount on.

I used paper from the new Summer Vibes Paper Pack and love how the colors went together so well.

I added a few enamel dots, and the sentiment cut with a rectangle from the Right Pocket Die made for the perfect size.

I love how this card turned out and hope you enjoyed too!

I used one of the rectangles from the Horizontal Pocket Die to add the sentiment.  I added the Sun and Clouds from the Stitched Sun and Clouds Die to add the finishing touches.

My Wish with Cut Cardstock

Hey everyone! I am back with a fun scrapbook page for you. This month our featured product is gold and silver cardstock. One of our themes this month is journaling so I decided to make a scrapbook page that I can journal on.

Yesterday (7-13) I celebrated by 41st birthday and I thought it would be fun to have a scrapbook page that I could journal about my birthday wishes on. I started with a piece of 8" x 8" Black Basis Cardstock. Next I cut a piece of Curious Metallic Gold Leaf Cardstock to 7 3/4" x 7 3/4".

Next I adhered the 2 layers together wiht my tape runner. For this I used Tombow Mono permanent adhesive.

I love the sparkle in this cardstock! Next I cut another piece of my Basis black cardstock at 5" x 5" and a piece of Stardream Metallic Silver at 5" x 5" and a piece of Basis white cardstock at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4".

I then used my tape runner to adhere the layers together. The black cardstock is a great way to separate the gold and silver cardstock.

Next I used a wish layering die from Stamp Anniething along with my black and silver cardstock and die cut the layers, I love how the silver pops against the black.  I also love how this almost looks like leather 

I then repeated this with the silver, gold and black with some dies from La-La Land Crafts. Layering to allow the black to pop. This can be done with the black in front or in back!

Now I need a little bling to not only embellish the page but to also balance a bit since I don't have dies in the upper right corner.

I then adhered the journaling box to the middle and then added the dies to the layout. Some silver glitter gems add the finishing touches to the layout. Now I can sit down and really think about what I want for 41- I can write about my day- All of the sweet messages from friends, the beautiful earring my hubby and dogs surprised me with and what I wish for this year. I love how this silver and gold add some elegance to this celebration and journaling layout.

I hope that you enoyed and check out these incredible cardstocks. Until next time my friends!

Gnoel with The Cat's Pajama's

 Happy Tuesday everyone!   Today I am back with a fun card featuring Gnoel, one of the digital stamps released this month over at The Cat's Pajamas.   I printed the version that has both the gnome but also the sentiment and cut down to a rectangle.    Next I printed the gnome with the ornament and cut with my Scan N Cut on Copic Xpress It Cardstock


Once cut colored with copics-

Skin- E00, E11, E21, R20

Hair and Mustache: W1, W3, W5

Hat: RV29, RV69, R35, R37, N1, N3, N5

Ornament: G05, G17, G28, YG09

Shoes: T1, T3, T5

Next I cut a pieces of cardstock down for a slimline card.   I inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.   Next I cut pattern papers from the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Christmas to make my various layers.   I inked all papers with the same walnut stain ink.

I used foam tape to pop the Gnome up on the card and add some dimension.   I then added some enamel dots to the corners to add the finishing touches to the card.

I hope you enjoyed my card- and don’t forget the sale going on over at the shop- 60% off stamps, dies, stencils and embellishments.

See you soon!

Celebrate! With TLC Designs

 Hey everyone!   I'm back with a fun little card featuring Cherry On Top Die.  I normally like to give Birthday cards, but wanted a little card that could be added to a gift bag, and could be used on it's own or in additon to another card.  There's just something about an addition to gift bag.

I cut the base of the cupcake in black cardstock.   Next I cut the top and the wrapper with pattern paper from my stash.    I inked the edges with black ink.  I wanted to mute the edges a bit and distress them.  

I used foam tape to pop both the top and wrapper bottom to the base.    Next I die cut the tag with coordinating pattern paper and stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sentiments Clear Stamp set.   I then used some yellow and white bakers twine and wrapped around the back.  This just adds an extra touch.

Next I cut the Cherry frompym the die set and inked with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink.   I then popped up with foam tape.   There is also a stem that comes with this die set, but I just liked how it looked without.

I love how this turned out and think it will be the perfect addition to any gift bag. 

I hope you enjoyed.  See you soon!

Tutorial Thursday with La-La Land Crafts - Tropical Treat Box


Hello everyone! Welcome to Tutorial Thursday!

Angela here with you today to share a tutorial with you!

Today's tutorial is:  TROPICAL TREAT BOX

This week our theme is Tropical, and I wanted to make a fun treat box with a Tropical Theme,


YG06, G05, G14, G28, R20, RV00


White Cardstock 10" x 6 1/2"
Pattern Paper 3 1/4" x 2 3/4", 3 1/4" x 1 3/4", 3 1/4" x 3/4"

Score White Cardstock-
Landscape: 3", 4", 7" and 8"
Portrait: 1/2" and 1 1/2" on both sides-  Score then rotate completely and score the other side,  

~ now for the tutorial you have been waiting for ~ 

Cut a piece of white cardstock at 10" x 6 1/2" and then score Landscape: 3", 4", 7" and 8" and Portrait: 1/2" and 1 1/2" on both sides

Next cut your base to look like below

Next fold on the score lines and apply score tape as shown below

Next assemble the box

Now we are going to cut the pattern pieces- 3 1/4" x 2 3/4", 3 1/4" x 1 3/4", 3 1/4" x 3/4"

And then the dies- I did not end up using the flower or leaf from the stamp set.

After adhering the pattern layers to my box, I aded the sentiment on the Long Flags Die, and then added the Tropical Leaves Die, and the Hibiscus Dies.  I added my Iguana to the middle.   I then used some velcro to secure the box.  You could also use magnets, or ribbon.

Lastly I added some enamel dots- to the Hibiscus and elsewhere on my box.

I love how this box turned out and can't wait to fill it up with treats!

We hope that you are inspired to try out your own creation with the amazing stamps and dies from La-La Land Crafts!
