Happy New Year from Bonnie Garby

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi Cheery Lynn lovers.  Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft.

Wow!  Can you believe it's already the end of 2017?  Where did this year go?!  Anyway, Happy New Year from me and Cheery Lynn Designs.  I hope you have some fun plans for today.
My card design today is something that would work interchangeably with another sentiment die.  Since I was creating a Happy New Year card, I went with black, silver and gold for my color palette.  This would be a really cool invite to a party if you are planning that far in advance for next year.  :)

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

My bow was created with two of the ribbon styles from the December Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool.  The center of the bow is finished off with a pretty Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year Hostess Gift idea!

3:30 AM 1 Comments
Hi there Cheery Lynn fans, Maggi here.  First, I want to wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.  I hope 2018 is memorable for you in many good ways!   I'm sad to say that this is my farewell post for Cheery Lynn Designs.  It has been a wonderful 13 months designing for them and I am so appreciative of the opportunity given me.  Thank you so much everyone at Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love their dies, they are so imaginative and fun to work with.  However, it is time to let someone else enjoy the privilege of being on Cheery Lynn's design team.

 Now let's look forward to the New Year celebrations.  To to kick off the holiday, I've turned an ordinary bottle of champagne into  a fun hostess gift by adding this shaker bottle hanger.  I used the New Year 2017 Shaker Die Set to make the shaker.  The die has 2017 as part of it's design so I just simply cut that off and glued the included sentiment, Happy New Years, to the acetate on the front of the shaker.

I used a large cut from the Coved Rectangle Stitch And Cut Tool set and placed behind the bottle hanger, using the bottle hanger as the 2nd layer.  On top of that I used a black starred layer cut with the A2 Frames Rectangular Scalloped set.  Next is the floral design paper cut with the Pierced Stacker 2 set.   All the papers I used are from Graphic 45's Vintage Hollywood collection and the dancing couple is fussy cut from one of the design papers.

The flowers are handmade using a mix of layered cuts from the Judy's Blooms Die,  Sweet Williams Die,  Indie Bouquet , and Floral Bouquet Kit 8 Piece Die Sets.

 To top the hanger and give a real festive look, I added two pretty bows and a floral center.

One thing I really love is a pretty swirly flourish and here I've used Flourish #7 Die.

Winter Fun with Laurie Schmidt

12:30 AM 3 Comments

Hi everyone!

Laurie here from Stamping Up North!

I hope you all had a great Christmas and are enjoying some vacation....maybe even enjoying some winter activities like this cute Snow Day Bear.
He looks like he's having lots of fun out sledding!

I made a snowy hill for him out of a pierced circle and added a few pine trees from the Bringing Home Christmas set. The background trees are cut from the Aspen Forest die. I love how it has a frame all around it...such a beautiful die!
I took some white acrylic paint, mixed it with a bit of water and made some splatters for snow with a toothbrush. Then I stamped the sentiment in black.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Feliz Navidad with Jenny Alia

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Good morning!  I made a number of gift tags this Christmas.  This was quick to construct but with the colors and gorgeous font of the Feliz Navidad die, it dresses up simple gifts perfectly.  The holly is part of the same die set and with a little bending of the edges of the leaves the leaves really spring to life.  I popped the circle up using foam adhesive for extra dimension and added snowflakes and red pearls for holly berries.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

3:30 AM 0 Comments
Hello Cheery Lynn fans and Merry Christmas to you!!  I hope you are all spending the day with family and friends and good food.

Today I'm sharing a quick ornament I made with my favorite Christmas die from Cheery Lynn Designs this year - Brad the Reindeer.  It may be too late for this year, but it's never too soon to start planning for next year, right?

This die set makes things super easy because there is a separate die for each layer and you just cut them in the colors of your choice and assemble.  And look how wonderful it comes out!
Brad the Reindeer is just toooo cute!  He is perfect for cards, gift tags or for a Christmas tree ornament which is what I did here.  I made him double sided so he's perfect for the tree.

Here he is on my tree.  Most of my ornaments are hand-made ornaments I created through the years.  I don't have as much time for the elaborate ornaments any more, but Brad was a quick and easy addition this year.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas and a 
Happy New Year!!

Merry Christmas by Julie Lavalette

Hi everyone, it's JULIE here and Happy Christmas to all our Cheery Lynn fans. Today I'm sharing some last minute Christmas inspiration for a fairly quick card to make should you have forgotten someone last minute or are in need of a Gift Card.

My card has all been cut out in glitter card for lots of sparkle. My Icicles have been drop shadowed with silver glitter card under the white glitter card to make them 'pop' from the white background. I also drop shadowed my sentiment.

My whimsical car I cut out in white card and then cut out my elements in glitter card trimmed the sections I wanted and glued on top of the white card, adding a couple of gems onto the wheels.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used -
LSC1 Silver Stitch Stackers

Wishing you a wonderful festive season with precious memories.

Crafty Hugs,

Merry and Fabulous Christmas Card by Amy Voorthuis

3:30 AM 2 Comments
Goodmorning lovely Cheery Lynn Fans,
It's with a sad heart that I am writing this post as this will be my last project made as a design team member for this amazing company. I've been a DT member for the last four years {with a little break in between} so I am going to miss being here for sure but it's time to move on and make space for some new talents. For my last project I made a Christmas card and most of you know I don't tend to make those very often. But since this post will be just before Christmas I thought wel why not. So here we go my last card.....

Merry and Fabulous Christmas:
 This card was yet again made with the lovely new "Joyous Winterdays" by Maja Design I am so hooked on this collection. It's a very tall card 8,3 inches by 4,2 inches because I wanted to use straws on it and I love tall cards.

 I got introduced by Cheery Lynn Designs dies about six years ago and the DL184 - Sophias Heart Doily was my first die I ever used. So I wanted to use it on my last card as a lovely memory....with that die I got accepted on the DT too......
Cheery Lynn Designs dies used: 
DL303 - Pierced Banners {set of 3}
DL184 - Sophias Heart Doily
SF-6 - Stacker Flower #6
B183 - Holly Leaves Strip
B257 - Cutie Fringe #3

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today and for believing in me all those years!
Cheery Lynn Designs YOU ROCK!!!
I hope you enjoyed my post and I have inspired you to use your Cheery Lynn Designs dies. You could also visit my blog at Amy's Pretty Papers for more inspiration.
Have a wonderful day hugs and kisses.....and a Merry Christmas too all.

Reindeer Fun by Debbie Brownmiller

3:30 AM 0 Comments
A warm Hello to you. It's Debbie with you today from Debbie's Time Out.

With the cozy red plaids and deer so popular this year for Christmas decorations I thought I would create a card using both.  I have inked, distressed and layered my background. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the  Winter Holiday Word  set. I added the snowflake from the Snowflake Set 2  set. The some holly leaves were added from the Holly Lace Flourish .

Now for this cute reindeer. I cut him out from the Reindeer Fun  set then layer different colors behind him and the trimmed him up a bit.  It doesn't show in the photo, but I popped him up quite a bit so he really stands out as my focal point.  Now this makes for a beautiful masculine card too.

Thanks for visiting the blog today and for all the comments you leave.
Have a great crafty day my friends.

Merry Christmas Dear Friends from Maggi

3:30 AM 0 Comments

Hi there Cheery Lynn fans!  First I'm sending wishes that your holidays are merry and bright and filled with love of family, friends and good food!  Cheers to you all.!

WOW, there are only a few more days left and I still have gifts to wrap, shopping to do and cookies to bake!  But what the heck, I have to take some "me time" out of my schedule to keep my sanity so I put this pretty card together using lots of Cheery Lynn Designs dies and Graphic 45's new Seasons collection.

This is an easel card and they really are simple to make.  Now I got a little fancy with the die cut at the top and that does take a little finagling but if you do just a simple square card it's quite easy.  Here's a link showing you how to make an easel card.  It's not this card, but you can see how the mechanism works.

I used the French Flair Pierce Tool to cut the basic shape of the easel and then a smaller one to fit inside.  Next I layered on the green print Quadrafoil Square Doily 2  cut.  Next is a brown circle cut using the Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker Frames.  Behind the pretty Graphic 45 cut-apart is a white piece cut with the Square Frames 3 Piece Die Set.  It makes such a pretty frame for the cut-apart!

To make the mechanism inside the card that holds up the easel, I popped up a sticker from the Collection and placed that on a small die cut from the Nesting Doll- Oval #2 set and layered that over a decorative paper strip.  I also cut another shape with the French Flair Pierce Tool to place inside the card.
I love how easel cards stand up, they display so prettily!  To finish off my card, I made a poinsettia with the Poinsettia Strip 6 Piece Die Set and added a pretty bow.

Christmas Wishes with Cheryl Walker

1:30 AM 2 Comments
 Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Tuesday to you all! Today I have a super pretty poinsettia Christmas card designed for Cheery Lynn Designs, using their beautiful dies. On this card I chose to use one of my favorite flowers, the Poinsettia Strip.

The design paper I used is Graphic45 and the poinsettias were cut using the same coordinating collection. The rose leaves were cut using green card stock, and the flourish is also cut in the G45 design paper collection. I also used the Quadrafoil Square Doily and cut it in the same card stock that I used to layer each layer.

Embellishments are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon- stamens red, ribbon, and flower gem. Sewing was done in red thread.

Merry Christmas with Laurie Schmidt

Hi everyone!
Laurie here from Stamping Up North with a penguin Christmas card I made using the Penguin Pal set. I can't seem to get enough of that set...the trio is SO cute.

Cheery Lynn Designs - Penguin Pals - 3 Piece - B909

I can never decide which one I like the best!

Actually, I can't seem to get enough of the whole fall and winter Cheery Lynn release! I can't even tell you how many times I have used those dies. They really are amazing. You can check them all out here.

For this card I used the penguin pal at the end of the trio, and adhered him onto a couple of trees from the Classic Christmas tree set. Then I adhered that onto a stitched rectangle and a Classic Snowflake Border. The sentiment is cut out 3 times and adhered together to add dimension. It's from the Merry Christmoose set. I love the font!

Here's a list of the dies I used:
