Triple Tier Slider Card and Tutorial

Hello Everyone!
Today goes out to all my Ghoulfriends!!!!

This time of year we have ghouls, gourds, pumpkins
and cute little witches everywhere.

Halloween to me is all about the fun of colors and
the creativity you can come up with.

I have a triple tier card for you that has a
Sherri Baldy My Besties digi as my cute little
pumpkin sitter.

The image is img734

As you pull the top tab, the layers reveal all inside
for a fun little surprise.

This was made for a friend in mind, so the sentiment had to
be something she would enjoy and have a good laugh at.

So how did I make this little gem.

Let's start with the supplies.

You will need cardstock in the color of your choice for the base.

Cut your cardstock into
1-6"x 12"
1-5"x 11 1/4"
1- 3 1/2" x 4  1/2"

save your scraps as we will be using a piece of it as well.

Score the  6" x 12" with the 12" side at the top at 4" and 8"

Score the 5" x 11 1/4" with the 11 1/4" side at the top at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2"

On the pieces that are scored, you need to add some slits to the
right scored panel on both pieces.
Cut slits 1" in from the score line and another 1" from the outside edge.
I cut my slits 1/2"in from top and bottom.

These slits let your cards slide up and down inside the card.

You need to start with your  3 1/2" x 4  1/2" piece and
your 5"x 11 1/4"

Remember the little scraps I mentioned.  This is where we 
make a strip to weave into the slit.
Follow the picture.

Add tape or glue to each side of the strip.  This is where you will attach 
the next piece.

Take your 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece and lay it on top so the top edges
are flush.

We are going to fold the right side in first and then the left over the top.

Add glue or tape down the edges.  My folder and scissors are placed
to show you the edges I did.

Your first tier is finished

Do the same thing to your next piece with adding your strip and placing
the first complete tier onto it.

Make sure your top edges are even.  You may need to adjust things
just a bit.

Fold like you did for the first tier and glue or tape your edges and you 
have completed the tiers

Decorate and add a tag at the top.  You may
 want to add your 
papers first before putting all together.

Aged to Perfection

Hello Besties!

Today we have for you a special project from 
Cindy van der Velde.
She has a technique to make your creations look aged.

For this project, Cindy has used this adorable
colored printable.

INSTANT DOWNLOAD Digital Oct 1 Color Printable My Besties By Sherri Baldy

Here are the supplies that you will need to do this.

* Black paper
* dies with embossing parts or embossing folders
* gilding wax
* card topper or stamp. I have used a cardtopper you can find here. I have used a photoshop program to make the cardtopper a little bit larger;

You start with cutting your dies and emboss them.

Take a little bit of gilding wax on your finger and go slightly over the embossed parts.
 It will look like this:

This part hasn't been done totally, it is just to show you how it works. When you think it is waxed enough you polish it up, just like shoepolish, with a soft piece of fabric. I have used gold gilding wax, but you have it in a large range of colours. You can use it on other colours of cardstock too, but to "age" your creation I always use a dark colour of cardstock. You do the same with the gilding wax when you have used an embossing folder or other embossed dies. 

And now the finished result:

It is very simple and you get a great effect! 

Hugs Cindy

There are many more colored printables that you could use
or color your own digi and customize it to your colors.

Welcome to Troll-ville

Hey everyone!  Trolls have been running around and getting
into all sorts of mischief.  These little cuties are just waiting
to come and join you in all your crafting ideas.

Today I would like to share with you a mini album
that has been created around these little sweeties
by using the Troll Mega Kit that is available

I have used elements from the Kit to make all the embellies
throughout.   I have used the mushroom and frames along with papers
to decorate the front.


I took the mushroom and made some shrinkydink charms to adorn
the closure for this album

I also colored another troll image and made a charm with her as well.
The image I used is scan0042

On the inside I have used various papers and other elements
to create pockets and tag holders

For this one, I used a flower to hold a tag I made from another
paper included in the Kit.

I used a flower element and bracket elements to hold small tags or
photo mats.

Here I cut one of the tags in half to create a pocket to hold
a mushroom I am using as a tag.

Here are some other pages and just how I decorated them.


Here is a small preview of what all is in the Kit.

Come and check out all the wonderful creations that are
being made with all of the Trolls over on
on facebook.  We would love to see all your Besties creations.
