Create Custom Journal Cards with Scrapbook.com

February 07, 2020 0 Comments
Another edition on how I created Custom Journal Cards.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and I hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing custom made journal cards using new products from Scrapbook.com

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation.


When I created these journal cards I was thinking about how I wanted to use them to tell a story. Since I am new to this kind of thing I thought about what I was taught in school. You can always start with these 5 things: Who, What, Where,When,Why, and How

So with that in mind I decided to create these cards using those words as my headers.

Of course, I knew that my Scrapbook.com supplies would work perfectly for this. 

To get things started I cut some Neenah Solar White cardstock into 3x4 cards.

I used the Summer Group Hybrid Inks, SBC Teardrop Floral Stencil, and a SBC Ink Blending tool to create the gradient pattern on the bottom of the cards. These colors are just gorgeous and I love Scrapbook.com Hybrid Inks!


Once I was happy with the inking I moved on to stamping my titles onto each card.

I used the new SBC Solid Bold Caps Stamps and the same Summer Group Hybrid Inks. I just love how well these stamped. The colors are vibrant and the letters are so solid. These are definitely going to be my go-to letter stamps and would be the perfect staple in any craft room!

These cards are now ready for the perfect story in my memory keeping.

Be sure to check out Scrapbook.com throughout the month of February. There are many sales with Freebies and you don't want to miss out!

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Until next time...

Custom Journal Card with Scrapbook.com

Creating custom made journal cards couldn't be easier!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and I hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing custom made journal card using new products from Scrapbook.com

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation.


I have been doing a little pocket scrapbooking lately and decided that I would be fun to create my own custom journal cards. 

With the help of products provided by Scrapbook.com I had these done in a jiffy.

For my cards I cut down some Neenah Solar White Cardstock into 3"x4" rectangles. I taped off a portion and used SBC Teardrop Floral Stencil, SBC Hybrid Ink Pad Kit - Summer Group, and the SBC Ink Blending Tool to create a gradient background on my cards. These inks blended beautifully!


I stamped my sentiments from the new SBC Wordfetti Best Day Ever Stamps in coordinating ink colors from the Summer Group Ink Set. To complete my Count Your Blessing cad I added numbers from the new SBC Vintage Type Upper Stamps.

These journal cards came together so fast and I love the way they turned out. I hope to use them in a project in the near future and I plan to make more!

Please take some time to check out all the Scrapbook.com has to offer. You will not be disappointed!

I will be back soon with another project!

Little Houses Scrapbook.com Release

November 30, 2019 0 Comments
Let the magic of the holiday season fill you with warmth, joy, and unbelievably creative ideas!.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing a small Christmas village featuring a new cut file from Scrapbook.com

 Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

Scrapbook.com released another new cut file called Little Houses.  Here is what included:

  • 1 set of digital files for a tall house
  • 1 set of digital files for a short house
  • 1 set of digital files for a short house with a chimney
  • 1 set of digital files to customize your own house

This is a look at the tall house. 



The cut file come with strings of lights, and a wreath that you can use to embellish your house. For my tall house I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Party Pink to create my lights. Since it was going on green cardstock it dried more of a red color. I added a gold glitter star to the roof and tried a bow with some baker's twine for the wreath. 


This is a look at the little house.


I used more of that Santa's Squad paper and embellished this hour with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Blue Babe. I added a bow to the wreath an a heart to the door.

For both houses I added some Lawn Fawn Vellum behind the window. These houses would be cute with some battery operated tea lights inside them.

A few things that you will need to help put these houses together:

1. A digital cutting machine (I used a Silhouette Cameo)
2. A score board if you machine does not have a scoring blade.
3. A bone folder for scoring your folds.
4. A liquid glue ( I used Lawn Fawn Glue Tube)


This was just my initial try at these houses. They came together super fast and easy. I hope to add a few more houses and create a cute little village in my entry way.

Head on over to Scrapbook.com and check out this new file.



While your shopping be sure to add the Adhesive Sampler to your cart! It's free today through Sun, December 1, 2019.



I hope you are enjoying your holiday season! I will be back soon with another project!

Festive Christmas Tree ~ Scrapbook.com Borders

Using cut files in unexpected ways is fun and expands your creativity!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing a card featuring a new cut file from Scrapbook.com

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

The cut file I am featuring is called Borders. It is a bundle of 7 different designs that can be used for scrapbooking and card making. It is a cut file so you will need a digital cutting machine. I use a Silhouette Cameo that I have had for years.


To begin, I cut a tree shape using the Advent Tree cut file. I stretched it to get a taller skinny tree. This was my base. I cut several of the scallop borders using some patterned paper from my stash.

The scallops were scored about an 1/8th of an inch from the straight edge. I began layering them onto the tree base adding tiny drops of glue from my Lawn Fawn Glue Tube. I folded each layer and added some Double Sided Adhesive Foam Rounds to create some dimension.


I created my card base to measure 4"x 9.5". I heat embossed a sentiment from Scrapbook.com Big and Bold Christmas using Versamark Ink, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, and Wagner Heat Tool onto some patterned paper. Once cool, I added it to my card base

My tree was adhered to the card panel using Double Sided Adhesive and craft foam to give it some lift. For a final touch I added a star  cut from Silver Glitter Cardstock.

I love the way this came together!


There are so many ways to use the new Borders Cut File

Cut files are great for quick and easy cards!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today I am sharing another card featuring a new cut file from Scrapbook.com

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

This card came together quickly with the help of my Silhouette Cameo and the card designs that are included in the Bee Happy Bundle.


This set of cut files are perfect for card makers and scrapbookers alike. 

If you would like to watch how I made this card check out my YouTube Channel.



Foe my card I started with the hexagon card base and added a smaller hexagon shape that I resize to be slightly smaller than the card base. I popped this layer up with some foam tape. 

I cut some smaller hexagons out of some Doodlebug Designs Flea Market design paper. I really love this paper pad and have hoarded it.

The hexagons were adhered with some Lawn Fun Glue and some Scrapbook.com Double Sided Adhesive




I glued the bee layers together and popped those up, as well. I gave the bees a little sparkle with some Clear Wink of Stella and added a few Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles to finish off my card.

February 14 ~ Free Cut File from Scrapbook.com

November 19, 2019 0 Comments
A calendar cut file that can be customized for any month , year, holiday. That is what I am sharing with you today!

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Saundra and I am a cardmaker. I love to create and hope you find a bit of inspiration while you are here.

Today's card features a new cut file from Scrapbook.com and it is FREE!

Affiliate links have been used where applicable. It does not cost you extra when you click on them but I do get a small compensation. )

 Scrapbook.com had a free cut file called Calendar. It features a full calendar that you can customize for any time of year. I decided to use this cut file and create a Valentine's card.

I sized the cut file using my Silhouette Cameo software and cut every thing out with my Silhouette Cameo. Now, I had to down size the file quite a bit for my 4.25" x 5.5" card. Those little numbers were a little hard to keep track of but I managed. Of course, you don't have to make something as small as y card. This file would be great to use on a scrapbook page or even cut out of vinyl. There are so many possibilities!


I chose some patterned paper from my stash and using the Lawn Fawn Glue Tube I glued down my calendar, numbers, and month title.I highlighted the 14th with a heart cut from Kaisercraft Candy Glitter Cardstock and popped it up with some Scrapbook.com Adhesive Foam Rounds.

My sentiment was stamped onto a banner I diecut using Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts Everyday Sentiment Banner Dies. It was stamped with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Ink. I attached it to my card using more liquid glue.


I attached the card front to my card base using some Scrapbook.com Double Sided Adhesive and some craft foam.

Make sure to head on over to Scrapbook.com to grab this Calendar freebie.


Thank your stopping in today. I will be back very soon with another project!!
