Too Much Snow

3:30 AM 5 Comments
Good morning bloggers!! It's Tanisha here posting from snow covered New Jersey. We've had so much snow here that I had to scrap about it. It has snowed every week since the day after Christmas. I'm so sick of snow, I don't know what to do with myself. Our last snow storm left behind a hefty 19" on top of ton of snow already on the ground AND we are expecting another storm tomorrow night! YIKES!!

I guess my Cheery Lynn Designs dies will be getting a workout. With all of this snow on the ground the only thing a girl is left to do is scrap.

I used a couple of CLD's new dies, Wittle Weaver and Large Circle Pierce Plate, on this layout to help add some texture.

Here you can see the texture that the piercing plate adds to the scalloped circle. How cute is that pierced snowman? He was really easy to pierce together. I simply cut small scraps of paper and taped them to the section of the die that I wanted. This way, I only had to run the die through my Epic Six once.

I used the Wittle Weaver to cut strips from striped paper to bring all of the colors in my layout together. I love the deep set texture this die adds.

Below is a complete list of supplies used for this project. Click on each to find the item in the store.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you are warm in your part of the world! Have a scrappy day!

Vintage book box - Kianel

3:00 AM 3 Comments
Today i show you a vintage book box that I made using Cheery Lynn Designs great dies!
I used the lattice die as a background and painted it with chocolate shimmer paint. I placed embellishments and played with my stamps and dies to make the main motive and text.
I also decorated the inside of the box using stamps and dies and some lace to enhance the vintage style.
And as it is a box, you can place pretty much what you want to offer and here i filled the box with yummy chocolates!
The papers are from Canson and Graphic 45, the shimmer paints from Creative Inspirations and the vintage stamps from the little french company Katzelkraft.

To decorate the box book I used the following Cheery Lynn Designs dies (click on the pictures):

Oval Scallop oval

That's all for me, hope you will like that box, have a nice week , love from France, Kianel.

Heart to Heart Doily Love

3:30 AM 5 Comments
We're so glad that you could stop by the Cheery Lynn Designs blog today (and everyday)! I'm excited to share a card I created using the new Heart to Heart Doily and other fabulous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs, including a sneak peek at the new English Tea Party Doily that makes its' debut at CHA in California this weekend!

Because Valentine's Day is drawing near, I've been in the mood for creating some lovey-dovey cards and using the Heart to Heart Doily is just the die to inspire a romantic card! 

To add to the overall romantic feel that I wanted to express with this card I also incorporated some of my other favorite dies.  The border at the bottom of the card is cut from the Embossed Hearts Scalloped Border Die, the leaves that I used with my hand-cut flowers are from the Small Dimensional Leaves 1 set of dies and I used the Foliage embossing plate to create that pretty embossed effect on the pink card stock that goes across the center of the card. A quick swipe with some Antique Linen Distress Ink and the embossing really pops... I love that!

The close-up above provides you with an opportunity to get a really good look at the beautiful dimension and intricate cuts achieved using the Heart to Heart Doily die cuts. 

And...while I am on the subject of the intricate cuts the Heart to Heart and other new doily dies create, I'd like to share a little tip with you (because I just know you are going to want to own each and every one of the Cheery Lynn Design doilies)! The intricate details of these dies incorporate lots of tiny-little die cuts that don't all fall out right when you take them out of your tabletop die cut machine. To remove those pieces quickly (and easily), tear off a piece (about three fingers wide) of removable tape and sticky-side down, press it onto the die cut. When you lift up, off come the little pieces lickety-split (yay!). (Alternately you may use a paper piercer or tweezers but that takes just a tad bit longer to poke out the cuts that don't fall out automatically).  For more tips and tricks using Cheery Lynn Designs you should check out these videos.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, join us again tomorrow for more projects using Cheery Lynn Designs magical dies!

Love cards with all Heart to heart doily dies

3:30 AM 2 Comments

I still play with my new Heart to Heart Doily dies and this card was done using the 2 bigger dies and all 4 cuts of them on one card, using the foam 3D glue to layer all of them one over another.. When you use 2 kinds of paper you can get a great effect with those gorgeous dies.
I also used the heart key die; cutting on chipboard and glued with a thick layer of glitter Stickles glue.
And I think this card screams Love- so no sentiment was used at all.
All of this card was made with Prima papers and Prima  big flower and a bit of home twine.
And here are dies I used for this project:

Now just jump to  our shop and get yourself these fantastic Heart to Heart Doily dies !!

Cheery Lynn Designs CHA Sneakpeek

3:30 AM 8 Comments
This weekend is the Craft and Hobby Association Trade show in California.  Cheery Lynn Designs will be there displaying all their fabulous dies and as well as presenting some new dies.  For today's card, I have used 3 new products that will be released at the show.

I started by cutting a card base using a folded piece of Cryogen card stock and my largest Scallop Circle XL Stackers die.  By sliding the fold of the card down the die just a bit, I can cut a card shape that is round but hinged on the top.  With the same die, I cut a lavender scallop circle and attached it to the card base.  Next using a piece of soft green Stardreams paper, I cut out the new English Doily die attaching it to the lavender scallop circle.  I cut a small circle out of lavender for the center, again using my Scallop Circle XL Stackers die .  Before attaching it to my English Doily, I used the new Circle Stitcher plate, embossing to give it faux stitches all over the circle.  Next came the center starburst, which I die cut using the new Canadian Kaleidoscope Doily, I just hand trimmed the center portion out.  The last step was to add some accents with my Viva Decor Pearl pen.  Finished size 5 5/8 inches.

Don't forget to become a follower of Cheery Lynn Designs and display the blog candy blinkie on your blog for a chance to win a $40 shopping spree.  Check here for details.

It's all about the Veggies

3:30 AM 7 Comments
Ok, you crafty types out there. What do I have to do to convert you all to loving my friends as much I do? Which friends you ask? You know, Bob, Larry, Jimmy, Jerry? The VEGGIE TALES?
I have such exciting things to share about my little veggie friends. Cheery Lynn Designshave given the Veggies, their own place to shine. You will be able to check in with them, and me, weekly to see what mischief we have gotten into. Please go and visit THE PRODUCE AISLEover on Cheery Lynn Designs site.

I will still be here with the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and will continue to have new things to entice with all of the Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
THE PRODUCE AISLE will be for the VEGGIES only and anyone they care to include:)

This week, I have a lot to share with you, so grab a V-8 and keep scrolling. The owners of Cheery Lynn Designs wanted to have some of the Veggie Tale characters to ship to the BIG IDEA studios. BIG IDEAs, do you know who they are? They are the creators, the geniuses behind VEGGIE TALES.

Ok, back to my story, it kind of goes like this:

Cheery Lynn Boss A to Boss B = "Let's send some of the Veggie Tale Characters to BIG IDEAs and they can assemble them to see what they look like."

Cheery Lynn Boss B = "Oh?"

Cheery Lynn Boss A to Boss B = "Maybe you could assemble them and mail them off to BIG IDEAs?"

Cheery Lynn Boss B = ***Snickers***

Cheery Lynn Boss B to Boss A = "How about I ask Jeannie, if she could make some cards or something to send their way?"

There you have it, the reason behind today's and some upcoming creations I have done. The second I was asked to do something for BIG IDEAs, I knew I wanted to do a family portrait. I had quite the problem, getting all these guys to cooperate for the picture, but finally we got some good shots! (Kidding, this is a paper pieced Family Picture)

On this picture, that measures 11 inches wide and 8 1/2 inches tall, I used ALL of the Veggie Tale Dies. You can view the whole gang(dies) here. I also used, Picket Fence, Mountains Border, Scallop Circle and some new plates that are called Stitching Plates. I had so much fun making this.

I can see this framed and hanging in a baby's room, a daycare, a church nursery a newlywed gift that says "{insert last name} EST {insert year}." I can see something like this used for many different occasions. They are cute, colorful and HAPPY!!
Here are some more pictures.

Left side of portrait:

Right side of portrait:

A little closer up to see the detail.

Before putting this portrait together, the Veggies had a photo shoot individually.

They must have been out helping LARRY BOY or something!

After I got them all individually pictured, I decided to do some magic with them. By extracting them from their white background, I was able to turn them into .png files. Now I can use them digitally. Here are my examples. This first example is my .ning page header. Again, the Asparagus's are missing..oops! I used 2 digital kits by STUDIO FLERGS on this banner.

Last, is my new profile picture for some different sites I am on and THE PRODUCE AISLE.

So, there you have it! My long-winded post. After playing with these guys, digitally, it sure does get my brain thinking of the many possibilities with my paper creations.
You know that ALADDIN song "A WHOLE NEW WORLD"? That is what I am thinking.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please visit us in THE PRODUCE AISLE often, we will continue to make you smile!
