The Spell Room by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hello Cheery Lynn fans, its JULIE here today and I'm sharing some more spooky fun in my Spell Room card.


I started by layering onto my paper my black Die Cut frame, this helps to draw the eye into the centre of the card. I die cut out my Old Books adding names onto them, layering onto my card and sitting my cheeky cat on top along with a scary ghoul.


My witches potions I also added names onto the bottles along with a cheeky spider. My witches hat I backed with some purple glitter card and adding colour to the buckle from a gold alcohol pen.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting,
Julie x

Happy Turkey Day with Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi friends!  Jenny here today with another new tag.  I had fun playing with a number of sprays.  The colors muddied a little but I liked the subdued look.  The darker background made it really quick to just gently add a little edge color to leaves from the Fall Leaves Set without coloring the entire leaf.  Leaving the leaves white really shows off the beautiful design on the leaves.  


I've been having so much fun making tags lately.  Sometimes when I feel my mojo slipping I find that switching to another type of project and it somehow re-energizes me.  The last thing I did was add  orange string and twine, both give it a little more texture.

I Need Coffee by Debbie Brownmiller

3:30 AM 0 Comments
A warm Hello to you. Nice to see you here. It's Debbie from Debbie's Time Out hosting the blog today. With October just around the corner I thought I would have a little Halloween fun.  So I designed this Halloween card.
I started with a piece of Halloween printed paper as my base and matted it in grey and black.
I love the coffee cup from the last release and I wanted to incorporate it into a Halloween card. I thought the sentiment " Hocus Pocus I need coffee to Focus" was perfect for the cup sleeve. And then there is the  bottle of sugar and scream for the coffee.
I placed the Dusty Miller Square  near the top of the card and added a button to the center of it.  I then layered the Witch Hat  and the coffee cup from the Brew Can Do It   set.  I layered flourishes from the  Fall Pumpkin Patch  set for the top corners and a bit tucked behind the hat.
Here I cut both Bottles and printed sugar on one and scream on the other one. Again I tucked in a couple more flourishes. The cat is one of three from the Friendly Felines  set.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed making it to share with you. If you haven't seen the new Halloween dies that were just released then you should check them out. There are some nice ones.

Please leave a comment and have a wonderful crafty day my friends..

Halloween Door With Lisa Blastick

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hello crafters! Welcome back to another fun card using some new and old Cheery Lynn Designs Dies. The adorable "felines" are purrrrfect for Halloween! I wanted to use the screen door and then make an awning over the top. The awning was made by cutting 1/2 strips and curving the edges. 


The cute ghost from "happy haunts" is a green goblin...lol  The sentiment from "Happy Halloween twiggy wreath" its the perfect size for the screen door. 


The spider web (nest) also has an adorable spider too. I added some glittery ribbon and two sequins for the doorknob. The background on the bottom I embossed it with "old brick"


The bats are from "bat family". I used the 2nd and 3rd smallest bat and just dotted the eyes with a signo white pen. Then I bent them a bit and added glue to the center of the bats so they appeared to be flying off the awning.




Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great day!
Hugs Lisa

All You Need is Love and a Dog!

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Maggi here today with my favorite subject, dogs! For me it's true, all you REALLY need is love and a dog.  In my case 2 dogs!  This is the cover for a mini album and I know the recipient is going to love it!  I used lots of Cheery Lynn Designs dies to give my cover a great look.  At the top and bottom I used the Lady Kate Edger die to give the entire page a framed look.   


I used two different dies, Fiona's Magic Window and A2 Scalloped Frames, to make layers behind the title so that it would really stand out.  Of course I needed some flowers to dress it up so I used the 
Black Eyed Susan and Floral Bouquet Kit to make my pretty red blooms.  I especially love the center of the larger flower that is part of the Black Eyed Susan die set.  it can be used with so many different flower dies too!

Isn't this little dog house the best?  It's part of the Pet Pack 11 Piece Die Set .  It has so much detail!



Other Supplies:
Graphic 45 Raining Dogs & Cats paper collection

Christmas Window Card with Cheryl Walker

2:30 AM 1 Comments


Hello Crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all!
Today's card was designed for Cheery Lynn Designs using the New Sparkle Christmas Tree 6 piece set, Poinsettia Strip, and Window die.

On my card I started with the beautiful window die, and cut it out in white.  Then I distressed it with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Next I cut the tree out in the coordinating design paper, and then used some spritz spray, but used the dabber tool to apply it to the edges instead of spraying it all over. I cut the little presents out in graphic45 coordinating design paper to go along with the theme on my card. The Poinsettia flowers were cut using a red design paper from the same stack, and then distressed with red ink, and I used the Glass Flower Technique that can be found on my blog under tutorials. I love Christmas time, and love decorating my house, so I'm looking forward to this :)

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
Sparkle Christmas Tree 6 piece set
Window B die FRM142
Poinsettia Strip
Big Sister Machine
Best Glue Ever for flowers

Other Supplies used:

Holiday Window Card Set with Laurie Schmidt

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi everyone, Laurie here from Stamping Up North!
I've really been into making cards with Cheery Lynn's door, fireplace and window lately. Such awesome dies and PERFECT for making cute holiday cards.

The ones I'm sharing today are the window cards,the first one is for Halloween. I cut out the window in black and added a spooky spider web behind it. On the window sill I set a ghost, pumpkin, and cat. The bats flying around are from the Happy Halloween dies. I cut out 2 green moons for the shutters with the Cat and Moon set too.



Jack O Lantern B594



The second card is a Thanksgiving window card.

 I used the Mandy Doily to make a bit of a curtain, and added an enamel dot at the top. I thought Cinderella's Pumpkins looked cute sitting on the ledge, along with a few leaves from the new Acorns and Leaves die set.



I used a couple of dies from the new fall and winter release to make a Christmas window card...the Penguin Pals and the Classic Christmas Tree. 
 I can't even tell you how many cards I have made with that penguin set...they are adorable. The window is actually a shaker set, but here I backed it with a curtain I made from the center of the Mexican Tile pattern die. I added a Christmas Light Swag and stamped a sentiment in black.





As you can see, I have had lots of fun with the window die. I'll be sharing my fireplace and door cards soon.....

Thanks for stopping by!

Let it Snow by Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hello!  I'm back with a card using some Cheery Lynn dies from the latest release.  I just love this new Aspen Forest background die and I think it would be perfect for making quick but detailed Christmas cards.  


 As soon as I saw the new background I wanted to pair it with these deer.  I have a number of deer dies but the Fancy Deer Set is so fun with the whimsical pattern and antlers.  I used the same brown paper for the antlers, background layer and the back of the deer.  The bigger deer is popped up with foam tape for dimension.  Last I double layered the Let It Snow and then added glitter glue for sparkle.

Boo! Spooky Halloween Card with Bonnie Garby

3:30 AM 0 Comments
If you missed out 'Giving Thanks' Blog Hop yesterday, be sure to click HERE and hop along for a chance to win.  Don't forget, Cheery Lynn Designs is having a 15% off store wide SALE thru 9/22/17.

Hi there.  Bonnie with you today from Make Time to Craft and I'm sharing a really fun and spooky Halloween card created with the incredible Ultimate Halloween 5 piece die set from Cheery Lynn Designs.  This set has so many pieces that you will never tire of it.
My orange background, pumpkin die cuts and the dark night sky background were all made using Distress Ink papers that I created.
The die cuts are very straightforward.  I simply cut them in the colors shown using cardstock with Stick It adhesive on the back.  For the pumpkins and tree, I added the colors that you see for the eyes, nose and mouth.  I added the cat in black on the tree as well.
I added some grass using the Grass Border 2 die and placed the tree in front of it and I tucked the pumpkins behind it to create some depth.
The details on the dies add so much character to the pieces.


My card is topped off with a shabby bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Black Bold Plaid Check Ribbon from the September Halloween themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can also see two more ribbons from this assortment running across the center of the card under the main panel.  I topped the bow off with a wiggle eye.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  What is your favorite Halloween die set?

Coffee Gift Card by Julie Lavalette

3:30 AM 1 Comments


Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today and I am sharing some more inspiration with our latest Fall and Winter Dies, I'm just loving this new collection. When I saw the coffee cup Die I thought this would be great to add onto a gift card, so let me show you how I made this.


My card measures approximately 4.75" x 6.25". I started by adding my Stacker layers on to the base along with a accent of glitter glue. Using the Gift Envelope Die I cut it out in patterned paper and placed a stamped sentiment and diecut snowflake onto it.


My coffee cup I added a diecut corrugated strip to the centre and my sweet Gingerbread man which comes in the Gift Envelope Set. This was layered onto my Snowflake Border.


On the inside I added a coordinating Snowflake Border, gluing in place leaving a space free to insert a gift card.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you feel inspired to make some cards like this for Gifts.

Crafty Hugs,

The Beach Life 8x8 Layout by Amy Voorthuis

3:30 AM 0 Comments
Good morning lovely fans.
Do you also love summer as much as I do?
 I just can not say goodbye to it yet....so I will not and you will see that on my 8x8 layout that I show you today. For this layout I used a picture of our son back in 2010 when we where in Spain for our vacation I just can't get enough of these lovely pictures of him. I used the amazing "Sand & Sea" collection by 49 and Market for this layout.

The Beach Life: 
First I cut out all the dies that I wanted to use as I normally do when I create a project for Cheery Lynn Designs. Then I place them on my background sheet and pick out what I like best....after that I work on my background with stamps, sprays and paste. I distressed all the edges you see on my work also the mat behind my picture and the outer borders of my layout.


The flowers are treated with Lindy´s Magicals and white spray and I added a pearl in the centers. For the background I used a bubble stencil with paste.  Once it dried I added star dust Stickles on the bubbles to let it shine a bit.

I just love how the dies compliment the paper and the colors go so well together. I am very happy this layout tuned out the way it did. Don't you just love these flowers??? Awesome Bohemian collection -one of my favorites of Cheery Lynn Designs.
