Crafting with Journaling Cards: Die-cutting

Hello, sweet friends! I am thrilled to be back at the Sweet Stamp Shop to celebrate the first kit from On Cherry Street! I must confess – I’m not much of a scrapbooker, but this hasn’t stopped me from creating the heck out of the July kit! I have some fun projects to share with you today – and they all share something in common. I could make you guess what it is, but just in case you haven’t had your coffee yet, I’ll spare you! On each of these projects, I die cut a journaling card. It’s okay – journaling cards aren’t just for journaling. You can paint them, stamp on them, trim them, or die-cut them. And they can be used for a variety of projects, not just for scrapbooking! laura williams make a wish gift duo 1First up, I have a card and gift box ensemble. I die cut the Sizzix Fancy Labels shape from the center of the yellow striped card, creating a perfect little frame for the wood veneer crown. Popping it up on foam tape added a nice bit of dimension. Then with the cut out portion of the Fancy Label, I created a coordinating gift tag. laura williams sweet stamp shop make a wish duo 4 Next up, I mixed in a lot of Sweet stampy goodness on this card. But what was die cut, you ask? This card is actually a larger 4×6 card. I used a 3×4 journaling card die to create a smaller card. (Plus I was left with the other half to use on another project!) Then I stamped and paper-pieced the froggies, their outfits (from Too Hip and Hedgies) and the rainbow. laura williams some kind of magical frog cardHave I convinced you non-scrapbookers out there? There are quite a lot of possibilities beyond scrapbooking with this kit. If you buy the July stamps, you’ll want this kit – they work together so seamlessly! And if you buy this kit, you’ll want the July stamps! {And that, my friends, is a sweet FACT!}

Thanks for stopping by the Sweet Stamp Shop today! I have another project featuring the July kit over on my blog, Lauralooloo. I hope you’ll stop by and say hello!

I used the following stamps to create these projects:
