Echo Park Once Upon a Time Prince Gift Card Book

Hi everyone, Brandy from Goodstuffmama sharing a sweet little gift card envelope book that's just too perfect for a little guy's birthday party using the Echo Park Once Upon a Time Prince Elements.

What you'll need:

Prepare Materials:
  • Cut 4 sheets of Once Upon a Time Prince paper to 5"X5" squares (verify that this will make a gift card sized envelope on your particular punch board)
  • Cut two pieces of paper to 3 3/4C 2 3/8 - This is your front and back cover
  • Cut one piece at 3 3/4 X 11" and score at every 1/2"

Create four envelopes using paper and an Envelope Punch Board. Score the folds nicely. Tape the flap back so that the envelope is wide open.

Once your envelopes are folded and assembled and your long narrow sheet of card stock is scored at ever 1/2" and fan folded, begin assembling your gift card envelope book.

Using Scor Tape or liquid adhesive, adhere the front cover to the very first valley in your fan fold. Skip the next valley and add your first envelope in the next valley. Skip every other valley, ending with the back cover of your book in the final valley. Adhere the empty valley's together.

When you are finished, you'll have a neat little book of four envelopes with a coordinating cover and spine.

Finally, embellish to your liking. I used the Echo Park Once Upon a Time Prince Layered Foil Stickers and the Echo Park Once Upon a Time Prince Enamel Dots along with a bit of twine to tie the book together. You can go a step further and embellish the insides of your book, tucking away little goodies and gift cards in between.

Easel Cards - Graphic 45 (Off to the Races)

Hello Crafty Friends,

It's Karen...I'm here to share my second project of the month featuring the glorious Graphic 45 kit "Off to the Races."  I hope you enjoy my two easel cards. I did one super feminine card with a touch of lace and the second one was more masculine by avoiding the floral patterns and roses. So it is good to note that although it may appear that "Off to the Races" is a very feminine kit, it is possible to make some manly projects from this kit as well.

Make your own custom embellishments by folding a simple paper rosette. Begin by scoring a 1x12" strip of paper every 1/4 inch. Alternate valley fold and mountain fold down the entire length. Use a hot glue gun to adhere the ends together forming a loop and then glue the center of the rosette to a small scrap of paper. The finished rosette will be double the width of the strip. By varying the width of the paper strip you can generate numerous size rosettes. TIP: It takes a bit of practice and patience to make a rosette so I always recommend using some scrap paper first before working with your final project papers. Practice scoring a folding because the more accurate you are at these skills, the better the rosette will be.

A Closer Look:


TIP: Add a real feather to the lady's lovely hat.

Gather Home Decor Tutorial

Gather Home Decor

 Prima Marketing Amber Moon Chipboard Sticker


Paper Cutter
Hot Glue Gun
Gold Spray Paint

Find yourself a box. You might need to cut it, glue it back together, or alter it to be the size you want. Make sure the top is open. Give the box a light spray inside and out with some gold spray paint. This will cover the multiple colors of the cardboard and prints.

Pull out this wood panel printed paper from your A4 paper pad. Measure all 4 sides of the box, and cut pieces of paper, slightly smaller.

Secure each paper to the sides with hot glue. You can either leave the paper as-is, or grab some sandpaper and give the edges of the paper some wear and tear!

 Grab your brown ink pad and rub all edges and corners of the paper and the cardboard box. Make this as light or as dark as you want.

Once your distressing is done, pull out this grateful chipboard, a couple leaves and flowers. I found some stray cording and ties some in a circle.

Lay out everything on the front of the box before securing it down, just to make sure you like it first.

Start to secure everything to the box with hot glue. After you have the main parts down, add some sequins and crystals for some sparkle.

 Feel free to add as much detail as you prefer.

 Fill your festive box full of pumpkins and cinnamon scented pine cones.
Place in the center of your table.

Art Journal with Graphic 45 Garden Goddess

     Hello everyone! Drea here with an art journal spread using the gorgeous Graphic 45 Garden Goddess I Want It All Bundle from

     Whenever I get a new bundle to play with, the first project I do is usually what inspires me the most. With this collection I was immediately drawn to the goddess in the clock, and knew I had to create a magical place for her and all of the other goddesses that I fussy-cut from the Garden Goddess 12 X 12 Collection Pack.

     I started by gluing torn pieces from an old dictionary to my journal pages, and covered it with Prima Marketing White Gesso. Then I applied more gesso to the Tim Holtz Mini Nordic Stencil. Once it dried, I spritzed it with a few sprays, including Distress Spray Stain (Fossilized Amber), which is a perfect match to the sunflowers.

     Here's a closer look at the stencil work and another goddess.

     To create vines, I added some green fibers from my stash, and stamped the leaves with Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Pine Needle, and Forest Moss) onto one sheet of paper from the Garden Goddess 12 X 12 Patterns and Solids Pad, using both sides. Then I used another half sheet to cut the flowers with my Cricut Expression. After inking the edges with Distress Ink (Worn Lipstick), I spritzed them with water, and scrunched them up, adding FotoBella Pearls to the centers.

     Finally I added some Chipboard for the title, along with a couple of small circles added to the clock and on the left page.

     Thanks for stopping by, and get the Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Bundle at!
