Camera Treat Cup Card - Lori Whitlock Creative Team Project

Hello, I have a Lori Whitlock project tutorial to share with you today. I made this cute camera treat cup card using two files from Lori's shop, looks like a lot of steps but very simple to put together.

This was such a fun project to make and can be used for any card to add some yummy treats.

I started with the heart shaped box with window from Lori's shop, you can get it from the Silhouette Design Store here.

I ungrouped and deleted all except these three pieces.

Zooming in real close I aligned these two pieces along the score marks. I wanted one piece instead of two since the heart box will be sized smaller.

Selecting both I replicated and mirrored above and moved the two on the top  a couple of arrow clicks down. Depending on how wide you want the box you can move this as much as you want.

I selected all the pieces, welded and grouped them all together, I then grouped with the heart.

Next, I worked on the camera, I used the one from the travel icons set, you can get it here also from the Silhouette Design Store. I put it together on my mat and resized it to about 5.5". Two of the pieces I didn't use so I deleted them.

Now I took the heart box and resized both pieces together so the heart fits inside the circle. I made a duplicate of the heart and ungrouped to just use the bigger layer, this is what I used to make the heart cutout from the camera pieces.

I duplicated the whole camera and did a subtract all, I did this a couple of times deleting what pieces I had already made cutouts from.

As you can see, I ended up with all these pieces. the upper right piece is just a duplicate of the camera with the top cut off, that will go inside the card to hold the slider.

The slider is just a square and two rounded squares welded together. You just have to make sure it covers the heart opening and is smaller than the extra piece that goes inside.

I replicated and mirror left the camera bottom layer with the heart cutout, moved it one arrow click over and welded to create my card base. I did a release to get rid of the heart cutout on the left side which would be the back of the card.

Here's the box pieces cutout, I molded the side a little and used score tape which made it quick and easy to put together.

The pink and white layers should slide right over and glue to the bottom tabs, just make sure the tabs are going out and not in.

The inside piece for the slider just needs tape around three sides so the slider can move in and out.

As you can see I filled the cup with m&m's and pushed the slider in.

Here's a closer look at the card, it's a little front heavy so it doesn't stand very well with the candy inside but it's super cute. Paper used is Doodlebug's Cream & Sugar.

Cream & Sugar Cards - Doodlebug Design Team Project

Hello there, I have a bunch of cards to share today using the adorable Cream & Sugar collection from Doodlebug Design.

I love making cards and this collection with its sweet treats, coffee, tea and hot cocoa embellishments made creating these so much fun. It was very easy to come up with five cards in no time.

The patterned paper used for all these cards are from the cream & sugar 6 x 6 paper pad. For this card, I used a couple stickers from the this & that sheet and the cake and notebook paper from the odds & ends pack. I added a piece of bubblegum daisy stripe petite print behind the notebook paper and finished with a ladybug mini clothespin.

This coffee cup odds & ends diecut is absolutely adorable! For some special touches, I added a little clear wink of stella to both hearts and some hand stitching. The speech bubble and sentiment are from the that & that sheet, I also used a piece of a mini swimming pool doily.

I think this is one of my favorite cards from the bunch. The diecuts are from the odds & ends pack except for the ampersand which is from a die. I added some cupcake and lily white sequins and a couple of sprinkles from the latte love and milk & cookies packs. There's a piece of swimming pool textured cardstock behind the first background layer.

This sentiment is cut from the tea time 12 x 12 sheet and diecuts from the odds & ends pack. to finish up this quick and easy card I added a couple of bon bon sequins.

For the last card like the others, I used odds & ends and paper from the 6 x 6 paper pad. Also used is a piece of paper from the rainbow gingham-linen petite print assortment pack, bubblegum mini doily, a teabag from the tea for two doodle pops and a mini heart clip.

Doodlebug Tea bag Shaped Card

Hello, I finally got around to making this card using the tea bag cut file from Doodlebug's Cream & Sugar collection. These files are so adorable, I got this one from Lori Whitlock's shop but they have Doodlebug files in the Silhouette Design Store also.

I first cut the bag paper out in white but then I realized I would be covering up that pretty heart paper so I cut again and used vellum. The patterned papers used are from Doodlebug's Cream & Sugar collection except for the brown linen which is from the gingham-linen assortment pack.

Winter Gift Set - Lori Whitlock Design Team Project

Hello, I have a cute winter gift set to share today featuring the A2 Snowman Card and the Tall Christmas Tree Box from Lori Whitlock's Shop. I'm using this set as a thank you for a friend but it would make a cute set for any winter occasion.

You can get both of these files also from the Silhouette Design Store, A2 Snowman Card and the Tall Christmas Tree Box. I used the svg from Lori's store so I could cut them out on my cricut maker.

I made the card thinner so the snowman would better match the one on the tall box. I used paper from Echo Park's A Perfect Winter designed by Lori along with frames and tags, decorate brads and enamel dots from the collection.

I just did a release compound path to get rid of the Christmas tree and resized the snowman to fit on the front layer. This is such a cute box, it was perfect for the makeup items I put inside.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!
