Cheery Lynn Designs Shasta Daisy Video Tutorial

Hi everyone.  I’m very excited to announce that I’ve been asked to join the Cheery Lynn Designs team.  I’ve been creating with Cheery Lynn Dies for a while now and it was a dream come true to be invited to join these talented ladies!

I love to get a lot of use from all my dies so I’m always looking for new ideas.  The Royal Scandinavian Doily from Cheery Lynn Designs is one of my favorites and it has two pieces.  I’ve used the outer piece many times and this card uses the inner square to create a beautiful lacy overlay.  The card is embellished with some pretty Shasta Daisy flowers which I’ll show you how to make below and a cute little double bow made with Rust Shimmer Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Below is a quick photo tutorial on how I made the lacy overlay.  The first thing I do is apply Stick It! adhesive to the back of the paper I am cutting whenever I use an intricate die.  This is the best adhesive I’ve found for intricate die cuts because there is a little ‘play’ time for you to get everything where you want it before it’s permanently affixed.  Once you have the die cut placed where you want it, you simply press it down with your fingers or a small brayer.
For this technique I cut my white cardstock to the desired size for my card and then I draw very faint guidelines for the placement of the die.  I made the lines quite dark for you to see for this tutorial, but make them as light as possible since you will have to erase them when you are done.  Then just run the die through your machine and move to the next position using the guide lines for placement.

Once you have the whole piece cut you will peel the backing from the Stick It! or apply your adhesive of choice and adhere it to the base.  Now that you have stabilized the lacy overlay, you can carefully erase your registration marks.  I love the look of the kraft background and the white lacy overlay.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE making handmade paper flowers??  

Well I do!  The Shasta Daisy flower is a quick and easy flower and by changing the colors, you can make it work for just about any holiday or season.



I hope you enjoy my Shasta Daisy video tutorial below.

Autumn is the Time to Harvest Friendship

Hi friends.  I can’t believe September is almost over.  I just love Autumn and it seems to fly by every year!  I love making projects with rich Autumn colors and it’s never done without a beautiful bow using ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon!

The pretty bi-color double-loop bow is made using Maize Checkerboard Satin Ribbon and Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  To see a tutorial on how I created this bow, please visit my YouTube Channel HERE.
I made the pretty paper flowers using the Shasta Daisy Die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love making my own flowers because I can create them in the perfect color to match my project.  BUT, if you don’t have time to create your own flowers, Really Reasonable Ribbon carries a large variety of Mulberry Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts that work really well too.
