Arctic Sweeties Pop Up Box Card | By Donna

Hello, everyone!
Donna here with a project that I have made using the new Laserowe Love Arctic Sweeties complete collection.

This time I have made a pop up card box. I've never made one before. It was so easy to make. I used white card to make the card base and covered it with Arctic Sweeties paper.

Links to the products used can be found at the end of this post.

I cut around each of the characters. Some of the characters that I used are on a 12" x 12" sheet, and others are on strips of motifs. I adhered the cut outs onto strips of clear acetate.

The snowy branches are taken from a die that came with last years Magnolia vintage box.

I just adore these little arctic characters. I added some glamour dust from my stash to the balloons, and presents.

I used Roxstamps pierced circle die on the three flaps of the box, and on two of them I adhered a Gummiapan snowflake die cut. The purple 3mm pearl flatback in the centre of the snowflake is from my stash!

I cut out, and added a tag to the back of the box. That way you can write your own personal festive message. I hung the tag with a length of white string and secured to the back of the box with a tiny silver brad.

That's all from me today!

Art Journalling with Pion papers | By Jo GDT

Hi Everyone! My name is Jo and I blog over at Let’s Art Journal. I’m delighted to be here at Swedish House Crafts as part of the Guest Design Team today.

With the Christmas season almost upon us, I created an art journal page inspired by the Glistening Season Pion Design papers, a Gummiapan stamp, some of my favourite Tsukineko Inks and also some pretty Swedish House Crafts Fabric Flowers.

To start, I created this dreamy vintage background by stamping a Reed Plant stamp from Gummiapan using Versamark Watermark ink. Then I coloured the page using Paris Dusk and Teal Zeal Memento Ink with a blending tool and added some Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and splatters of acrylic paint to give it more of a grungy look.

I cut out some of the images from the Glistening Seasons Pion Design paper and used scissors and Memento Inks to distress the edges, and then I arranged them onto the page with some die cut foliage and pieces of doily.

I also added some snowflakes, which I created using the Pion Design paper, to the page along with some other embellishments including Swedish House Crafts Fabric Flowers and three hearts which were cut from the Pion Design paper. 

If you would like to see how this page came together, the full process is detailed on my blog here.

Thanks so much, I have really enjoyed spending time with you today - Happy Crafting! 

Thank you. Jo x

Vintage Baby Girl Exploding Box | Liz

Hi, guess what, I'm here today showing you another creation I've made using the gorgeous Vintage baby collection by Laserowe Love .

I couldn't resist making a vintage style exploding box, for the lid I added some cut some paper, then added a fussy cut image from one of the papers raised up with 3D foam, then below this a strip off another sheet of the papers which I raised up slightly higher.

As you can see on the lid sides I used another of the lovely papers to tie in the image on the paper below.

Inside I used more of the papers and some of the fabulous chip boards.

I fussy cut the images again raising them up with 3D foam, I then added some hand drawn lines for the balloon strings. I do so love the cute chipboard teddy!!! which I left in its natural state.

After fussy cutting the banner I again raised it up with the 3D foam. I also fussy cut the rocking horse which I glued onto the base leaving it flat. Then raised up the gorgeous vintage styled teddy bear, I also love this image!!!

On the other side I raised up another vintage bear image and placed a chipboard rattle left again in its natural state.

The rear of the box has this vintage pram cut out from one of the sheets, look how they all mix and match perfectly!!

In the middle section I used one of the Roxstamps nesting circle dies to cut out a circle giving the appearance of a vintage rug, then I added the 3D cradle. In the front I glued more adorable teddies.

After making up the 3D cradle I added some paper flowers, cheesecloth as a mock blanket and a tiny doll cut from one of the papers too. This I then glued in the corner of the cot.

Happy Crafting!!

Envelope Card | By Irene Mendes

Hello everyone, it's Irene here - the newest member of the Swedish House Crafts Team with a post for you today.

Today I thought of bringing you one of my favourite stamps from Magnolia, the beautiful Pink and Blue Ribbon - Hear No Evil Tilda. This beautiful stamp belongs to a series of six stamps in a total. Pink and Blue ribbon for a cancer fight campaign.

This is my template for this project:

To create this envelope card I used the decorative paper from Laserowe Love "Vintage Trip". Unfortunately we still do not have it in the store yet. This paper has a mix of Pink and Green with a "Vintage" look and how they can see with pretty nice and soft patterns.

Now my Project:

To create this layout I also use some DooHickey - Magnolia dies as Magnolia Doohickey Club vol 4, and Magnolia Doohickey Club vol 9, as well as a Laserowe Love frame, Oval Flourish Frame.
