Pillow box anyone?

Pillow box anyone?

Hello!  This is Sukie from the Social Media Design Team.  We seem to be in the midst of the Summer wedding season and I have a fun gift packaging idea to share today just for that!  I used an oversized pillow box and embellished it with some sparkly papers and tags from DCWV.     To create the decor for the pillow box, I wrapped the center with a 2" paper lace strip cut from the Silver Shimmer Die Cut Sheet (available at Hobby Lobby).

We  *heart* Chameleon pens!!

We *heart* Chameleon pens!!

Hello crafties!! Jeri here from the DCWV Design Team with a fun and colorful card idea for you! Have you tried Chameleon Pens yet? Do you love them? I fell in love with these pens a long time ago, but just could not get myself to make the purchase. However, once I got my hands on them, it was instant love! I am still learning with them—I am not quite an artist or a hand-letter master, so they are taking me some time to get used to. But, starting with the basics, anyone can look like a pro!   Ready to make this colorful Chameleon Card with me? Grab your markers and the DCWV Color & Create Patterns & Prints Stack.

Different themes, same stack

Hi everyone!  This is Social Media Design Team Member Karen H. and today I wanted to share a project using a stack that is a bit out of my comfort zone but oh, so pretty!  When I am crafting, I often find myself gravitating towards bright and bold colours.   But when I first caught site of the new Minty Lace stack available at AC Moore, I knew that I needed to create some layouts with these pretty papers.

Coastal Memories

Hello, DCWV friends! It's Jessi from the Social Media Design Team. I have been longing for a fun trip to the beach. We are now in August and my family still has not been to the beach yet! That is so sad, we only live 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico! However, the beaches nearby are not in the best condition or we would go more often.

Cactus, cacti, paper plants...it all works!

  Hi everyone!  This is Social Media Design Team Member Karen H. and today I wanted to share a project that is a bit on the prickly side (not sure I ever thought I would say that when I started crafting)! Recently, I received the DIY Project Stack Paper Plants (available at JoAnn).   I actually wasn’t that surprised – cacti have been all over home décor posts lately, and this stack seemed right in line with that trend.

Dandelions and Scrapbooking

Hi Everyone! Jeri here from the DCWV Design Team. How many of you out there have dandelions in your yard, and just hate them?! Well, remember when you were little how much you loved them?? I got to spend a couple days with my nephew in Utah last month, and as we were walking around in the backyard, he was having so much fun kicking the white fuzz off the dandelions. I decided to get some shots of him playing with them.
