Sandee Shanabrough here with an easy favor idea for
a wedding, a shower, or a party!
Candy 2

I gathered my supplies including chocolate bars!
The papers I used are:
This shimmery pink is so gorgeous!
 I cut three panels 5 1/4 x 7.
Or you can use the paper wrapper as a guide for your measurements.
Candy 4I used a strong adhesive to glue the paper around the candy bar.  You don’t want them falling apart before your guests can enjoy them!

Next I adhered pretty satin ribbon,
 bringing the ends together on the top of the bar.
Candy 6The ends of the ribbon are hidden behind the sentiment.  Here I have used an Our Daily Bread designs sentiment from Love Scriptures and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.

Another option would be to adhere a pretty embellishment!
This beautiful butterfly is from Our Daily Bread designs.

Birthday Card Set by Jenny Gropp

Jenny Gropp here today, sharing some super easy birthday cards!
The supplies are simple for these cards and they definitely qualify for CAS Designs… but the beautiful metallic papers add a rich feel and look to them. products used:

Happy Birthday I loved using the Onyx Black Metallic paper for my card base. It is a luxurious 107# weight and creates a beautiful card base. The heavier card stock is ideal for your cards allowing them to stand on display nicely. The Swirly Paper has a pearlescent finish to it which coordinates nicely with the black metallic. I die cut an A2 sized rectangle and then sliced a piece out of the middle before, adhering the two separate pieces to the card front. I flipped the paper over to die cut the sentiment as the back side was a solid pearlescent. A fineline glue applicator or a product like Stick It is perfect to adhere delicate die cut pieces.

Happy Birthday 1This smaller card measures 4.25″ square and is perfect to tuck in with a present or hold a gift card. I used the 100# Classic White Neenah paper to create the card base. A little foam tape to raise the black panel adds dimension.

Happy Birthday 3 I always like to add liners to my cards, giving them even more stability and a nice finished look. I used Neenah Classic Crest White and added a few of my leftover paper pieces along the bottom edge.  I cut the liner using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched large Rectangles, the small stitching adding a little extra detail.

Happy Birthday 2Other products used:

Dies: MFT’s Stitched Squares, Lawn Fawn Stitched Large Rectangles, Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Birthday Die
Other: Silver Sequins, Adhesive Small Pearls, Scotch Quick Dry Glue, Fineline Glue Applicator, Foam Tape

Have a great day!

Flowery Door Hanger With Video by Debbie Seyer

Hello!  Debbie Seyer here today to share with you my latest project.  I challenged myself to use only cardstock, ink, stamps and dies to create a beautiful project to share with you today.  I had so much fun with my personal challenge, too! supplies used:

Natural White Cotton Paper 80#
Brown Kraft Cardstock 65#

Door hanger 1Using a cut file and my Silhouette Cameo, I cut 2 lightweight chipboard door hangers.  After glueing them together, my base was nice and strong!  I also cut 2 door hangers from the Natural White Cotton Paper 80#.  I covered the front and the back of the door hanger with this paper.  I inked around the edges using Old Paper Distress ink and then stamped a music note background stamp randomly all over the door hanger front.

Door hanger 2Using the Natural White Cotton Paper 80#, I created flowers using some flower stamps with a matching die.  The weight and composition of this paper is perfect to create your own flowers.  Using a light mist of water when shaping the flowers helps to give body and dimension to all the petals, too!  The Brown Kraft Cardstock 65# die cut beautifully using a doily die that I had in my stash.  The paper is lightweight enough for the intricate die to cut using only one pass!

Here is a video showing the process I used when I was creating!

other supplies used:
Stamps – Botanical Rose stamp set & Classic Leaf stamp set (Heartfelt Creations); Music Notes background (Prima)
Ink – Old Paper Distress Ink (Ranger); Olive Grove Memento Luxe ink (Tsukineko); Crumb Cake ink pad (Stampin’ Up!)
Dies – French Pastry Doily Die, Botanical Wings Die & Classic Leaf  die (Heartfelt Creations)
Embellishments – pearls (eyelet outlet); lace, twine, metal embellishments, seam binding ribbon

Have a great day!

Special Day Card by Sandee Shanabrough


Sandee Shanabrough here again with a card that can be used for several special occasions.  Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, etc.

I used gorgeous papers from

Solid Cotton Candy Pink Card Stock 65#
Solid Bright White Card Stock 80#
White Translucent Vellum Paper 29#

Special dayI used a stamp set from North Coast Creations called Floral Sentiments 6.  I colored the image with copic markers and cut the image and the mat out with Spellbinders A-2 dies.  The vellum layer is embossed with a die from the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern set.  It is hard to see in the photo but the pink layer under the vellum is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  This paper takes embossing so beautifully!  I added a pretty seam binding bow to complete the card.

 Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Burlap and Gold Anniversary Invitation by Debbie Seyer

Hello Debbie Seyer here!  Today I would like to share with you a fun and easy invite that I created using some burlap, twine and beautiful patterned paper! supplies used:
To begin, you will need these supplies…..
Burlap 1
I chose the Recycled Brown Kraft Cardstock 65# for the base of this 5 x 7″ invitation.  I used the Brown Spring Bloom on Classic White patterned paper to put behind my printed invite.    I printed the invitation onto Natural White Cotton Text Paper 80#.  I also used some burlap ribbon and white twine.  Here is how I put it together…
Burlap 2
I cut the brown kraft cardstock to 5 x 7″.  Then I cut the brown spring bloom paper to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4″ and layered it onto the kraft base.  I printed my invitation out onto the white text paper and cut it  to measure 4 1/4 wide x 5 1/2″ long so that there was a portion of the patterned paper showing at the top.  I used some Mono Multi liquid adhesive to adhere the burlap into place.
Burlap 3
With this particular adhesive, you do not need to cover every bit of the burlap.  Just put some small dots around the edge and down the middle.  Allow this adhesive to turn clear and then put it into place.
Burlap 4
I added the white twine, a button and some pearl stick pins to finish.
Burlap 5
