Welcome Baby Box TUTORIAL ❤ la-la land crafts


Hello everyone! Welcome to Tutorial Thursday!

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

Today's tutorial is:  Welcome Baby BOX

Here'a a tutorial for a small Welcome Baby box. You can use it to store a small gift inside, like baby socks or even a gift voucher.

duck: black soot, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade

White cardstock 11 x 7" score at 3", 4", 7", 8" (long side) and 1", 2", 5", 6" (short side).
~ now for the tutorial you have been waiting for ~ 

Take white cardstock and cut it 11" x 7". Make score lines at:
3", 4", 7", 8" (long side)
1", 2", 5", 6" (short side)
Cut acording to picture. 

 Make two diagonal score lines.

Make folds.

Cover the inside and outside with design paper. Glue the sides together.

Close it together.

Decorate the box. I covered mine with cute ducky. You should only glue the circle on one triangle. Once it's glued it will hold the other one down.

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

Late Christmas card

Today I want to show you one of my 2020 Christmas cards. I honestly didn't have the energy to do blog posts or even cards during the holidays. I'm super busy with my collage and work, so until my "collage year" ends I'll share less cards than usual. In 2021 I'm staying with all my AWESOME design teams:

I'll try and do some online tutorials (not promising anything here) and I'll also do some cards for Paper Nest Dolls. I promised myself to try and do new stuff in 2021, so I bought planner disc punch and ordered some discs. I'll try and make a planner or an album with those. Will see ... I'm full od plans now, but I have a few exams coming up so .... 

Image used on this card is from Magnolia. I masked together two images and coloured them up using Distress Ink pads.

Dies used are from Magnolia and la-la land crafts and paper is from Maja Design.

SQUISHY CATS ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you. First let me wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR! May all your wishes come true! Do you know that great feeling once Christmas is over and you fell like you can do just about any card you want? I've had this Squishy cats stamp for some time now and they really remind me of my cats, just chilling and enjoying themselves.

I stamped this image with Archival Ink - Jet black on 300g HP watercolour paper from Fabriano. I coloured it up using Distress Ink pads. Colours used are: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, vintage photo, hickory smoke and black soot. After colouring them up I fussy cut them.

The brick wall I created is a bit different. If you add texture pase over the brick wall stencil and then leave it to dry for a few hours it will create solid hard bricks which will stick to the paper. I do things a bit differently. I apply texture paste and then I dry it out with my heat gun which lifts the paste from the paper. It only sticks on the sides and creates these 3d bricks (they look a bit fluffy). It's a bit hard to explain but once you try it you'll see what I'm talking about. LOL

That's all from me today. Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs, t.
