How to Make an Altered Recipe Card with Dew Drop Highlights

Hello and welcome.  Shelly with you today, sharing an altered recipe card.

My niece recently got married.  For her bridal shower, guests were asked to fill out a provided recipe card for the bride – I decided to go a little above and beyond a simple handwritten recipe (and now she wants me to do all her recipe cards – lol!)

Gather Your Supplies:

 

 

Make It:

 

  • Cover front and back of card with patterned paper and cardstock (I used white cardstock on the back)
  • Optional – a little machine stitching

 

  • Next, either hand write or use computer to type up your recipe
  • Add machine stitching if desired, ink edges
  • Add recipe title with alpha stickers
  • Add cardstock sticker using dimensional foam tape for dimension (I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch to “deactivate” sticker first to make it easier to work with)
  • I added an Index Sticker from the paper collection to the top of card – I used a small piece of cardstock cut from the branding strip of my patterned paper to cover a word on the index sticker that did not apply to my recipe
No project is complete without adding Dew Drops as the finishing touch – they add color, dimension and just a bit magic

And finally, since this was a gift, I signed & added a sticker to the back of the card.

How to Make a Quick & Easy Layout of Life’s Funny Everyday Moments

Welcome! Shelly with you today, reminding you to record those silly, everyday moments!

And I am  sharing my every layout dynamic duo – Dew Drops and Sequins!  Dew Drops and sequins play off of each other with light, color and texture.  I love combining these 2 elements in groupings on all of my layouts.

What I used:

 

This layout is 8 x 8 with (3) 1″ Patterned paper strips overlapping on one edge
Cardstock stickers and Die Cut
Foam dimensional tape on all of the elements adds dimension and interest

What’s so funny?

How to Make a Frame with Dew Drops

Hi There,
It’s Karen here today… to share how I embellished a frame for a little boy’s scrapbook layout. I created the frame using Black Diamond Dew Drops placed in a row to highlight the featured pocket card.  I used Silver Dew Drops as faux brads so they appear to be attaching the ribbon flags and also to embellish the little car’s hubcaps.  Let’s take a look!

Other Supplies:  plaid paper, black card stock, twill ribbon, liquid adhesive, black ink pad,
black embossing powder, heat gun, rubber stamps (car theme)

 

Directions:
1. Matte 3 photos with coordinating card stock leaving a narrow border.

2.  Adhere a 4″ strip of brick background to the top of some ledger paper.  Add a 1″ border paper strip along the lower edge of the layout to make a street.

3.  Stamp and heat emboss some car themed embellishments with black embossing powder.

4. Select a 4×5″ pocket card and adhere the stamped edge to the top and bottom edge of the frame. Next, adhere black diamond Dew Drops in a line to form the edges of the frame.

5.  Arrange the photos and pocket card in an overlapping cluster and adhere.

6.  Cut 3 strips of ribbon and cut a notch out of one end to create a flag. Attach a cluster of 3 flags to the central photo. Carefully fussy cut some individual bricks and the stamped car image and adhere.


7.   Attach the bricks randomly on the background to create realistic dimension.

8. For the finishing touch, add Silver Dew Drops to appear as faux brads securing the ribbon flags, as well as, embellishing the little car’s hubcaps and along the top edge of the frame of the pocket card.

How to Make Simple Minnie Mouse Embellishments with Dew Drops

Hello Crafty Ladies,
Make your own unique Disney inspired embellishments with Black Dew Drops. Two small round above a large Dew Drop is a simple way to make the iconic Mickey/Minnie Mouse silhouette that is instantly recognizable. This is an economical way to add Disney charm to your layouts without the expense of buying costly stickers or die cut embellishments.

 

Supplies:
Directions:
1.  Adhere a piece of scalloped edge white card stock to a piece of black 12×12″ card stock.

TIP: You may notice that I removed a large bit of paper from the center of the scalloped sheet. It happened to be a double sided paper with a pretty pattern and since that area would be covered up, I could remove it and stretch my supplies further. Next, I carefully marked the area lightly with a pencil which could be removed. Then I used a craft knife to rescue that section of paper for use in a future project.

2. Cut a sheet of polka dot paper 10×10″. Next, create a frame by applying black glitter Washi Tape half overlapping the edge and then fold the remaining half to the back.  Repeat on all four sides or for an alternative, simply matte the polka dot paper with black glitter card stock leaving a narrow edge.
 

3. Crop the photos and then matte the main focal photo with coordinating card stock. Attach the two photos clustered together near the right lower edge.

4. Carefully trim around, the remaining head-shots. Adhere them to the layout. By tucking them behind other photos, it appears that the subject is peeking out.

TIP:  When you select a photo to fussy cut find an image with the least amount of fine details.
To prevent undue frustration, avoid profiles and those photos with intricate strands of hair.
My subject was wearing a hood which made it an ideal choice since there was no detailed hair
or delicate ears to carefully trim around.

5. Cut 3 circles (1.5″ & 3″) from black card stock and adhere them together to create a simple mouse silhouette. Add the subject’s initial letter to the center of the embellishment. Next, create 3 bows by using a needle and thread to gather a piece of tulle. Cinch it securely to form a small bow and adhere a gem to the center.

6. Attach some black Dew Drops to a sheet of glue dots. Assemble the tiny mouse silhouette using 1 large round and 2 small round Dew Drops. Adhere them to the layout randomly at slight varying angles to create a confetti like appearance.

TIP: To avoid disappointment, practice the placement of the Dew Drops before applying the glue dots. Also, take a photo of the layout so that you can refer to it when gluing the Dew Drops into the mouse head formation.

7. Add 3 additional medium circle embellishments to complete the layout.

A Look at the Details…

Other Supplies:
4 photos (4×6″)
pattern paper / scallop edge paper /card stock (black & white)
black glitter card stock, circle punch, chipboard alphabet
pink tulle, needle & thread
