If the Shoe Fits!

Then it must be SABOR! 

I have to say I am having a great time working with the SABOR Papers this month!   I know if you had the papers on your table you would be too... the vibrant colors of the papers just yell out to me... create, craft, make something!!!  I have been a crafting fiend this month and it is only the 13th!  Hope you are enjoying all the projects from the ALTERED PAGES team!!!

"Mule, a French word, is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height - from flat to high. The style is predominantly (but not exclusively) worn by women."  ~From Wikepedia

I was looking through a few on my templates and found this "Mule Shoe" that I had downloaded from Stampington in 2009!!!!  When I saw it shouted SABOR!
Sabor scraps
Bazzil-Flower Pink
Tacky Glue
Dew Drops
Glue Stick
Foam Dimensional Adhesives
Black Ink
Alphabet letter stamps
Heart Charm

Enlarge the template to the size you would like the shoe to be, lay on the SABOR SORPRESSA Cardstock and cut out the shoe.  Score on the dotted lines shown on the pattern, this will form the toe of the shoe! 


 SABOR AMOR  Heart Cutout use Tacky Glue  to add a heart charm to the center, then add Dew Drops to the flowers surrounding the hearts, set aside to dry!

On scraps of Sabor paper Black Ink and alphabet letter stamps, stamp "if the shoe fits".
Now you have all your parts, the shoe, heart, flower (folded in half) and sentiment.  Assemble the shoe, cut the word apart and layer on another scrap of Sabor paper, attach with Glue Stick.  Use Tacky Glue to attach the Bazzil-Flower folded in half.  Apply two layers of Foam Dimensional Adhesives to the back of the SABOR AMOR  Heart Cutout  and adhere on top of the flower.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
