Papercrafting in Twenty!

by Stephanie Hackney

Papercrafting in Twenty!
We’re going to inspire you to create…in 20 minutes or less!

Papercrafting In A Flash: Got 20 Minutes?

Got 20 minutes?

Let’s face it, we’re all busy.

That said, almost everyone can find at least 20 minutes in their day (or week) for being creative and we’re here to make it happen for YOU!

Heck, many of us find much more time to dedicate to our passion.

But, for those (like me) who are finding it challenging to fit papercrafting into our daily activities, we’ve got good news!


Starting next Tuesday, and every Tuesday thereafter, we’ll be sharing projects that take no more than 20 minutes to create.

What kinds of projects will we be sharing?

Papercrafting ideas galore, including but not limited to:

  • Scrapbooking
  • Cardmaking
  • Stamping
  • Home Decor Projects
  • Mixed Media
  • Art Journaling
  • Quilling
  • Paper Folding
  • Paper Cutting
  • Paper Sculpture
  • Paper Making
  • Book Binding

Sound intriguing?

Here’s an example of a Papercrafting in Twenty project I created today…in 15 minutes!!!

Papercrafting in Twenty: An 8×8 Layout Created in 15 Minutes (Layout Created by Steph H.)


We hope you’ll join us and share our newest offering with those who are into papercrafting…or who want to be!

And, we’d love to hear from you – what do you want to learn about?

We can’t guarantee we can cover everything suggested, but if it’s papercrafting-related, it’s likely we’ll be game!


And finally, if you know of papercrafters (talented amateurs, or artists and designers) who might want to contribute to Papercrafting in Twenty, send them our way – we’d love to hear from them!

And, we’d love to interview them, to find out how THEY find time to create.

I know we’d love to hear their tips and tricks – you too?

See you next Tuesday!
Steph

Week 70’s Papercrafting Inspiration:

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 70 Inspiration Piece (image)

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 70 Inspiration Piece

What do you think of our newest magazine inspiration piece?

I chose this magazine because I sometimes
(like right after a site update that breaks things on our site!)
long for the simpler times in technology!

How many of you recognize the name Atari?
Pong anyone?!

We hope this week’s cover inspires you to
grab your papercrafting supplies and PLAY along with us!

We can’t wait to see what YOU create!

This week’s magazine cover/layout offers:

  • A bold headline that ‘frames’ the content
  • Repeated images
  • A neutral background
  • Rectangles
  • An obvious center of attention (that ancient computer!)
  • Long blocks of text divided by an image
  • Bold, sans serif typefaces
  • Lots of ‘white space’ around the perimeter
  • And, perhaps you see something else?


What are YOU going to create this week?

Not sure how to use this week’s magazine as inspiration?
Simply leave a comment (comment link above or below) and we’ll do our best to assist you.

Last week’s edition of our papercrafting challenge,
Magazine Mondays – Week 69,
inspired another wonderful bunch of papercrafting entries!

For those who may have missed our last challenge post,
Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays – Week 69,
here’s a quick look at the inspiration piece:

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 69 Inspiration Piece (image)

Let’s see what our talented folks came up with this week…

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays -
Week 69 Submission by JPSCRAPS

Jpscraps created an adorable card inspired by the buildings in last week’s inspiration piece.

She lined her buildings up in rows, and used multiple colors, and she added a simple banner title. 

I love the repeated images (one of my favorite creative tricks!) and all the color.

Be sure to stop by Jpscraps’ blog to learn about the products she used for this card, and to see all the other cards she made…just using her scraps!

You’re a girl after my own heart!

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays -
Week 69 Submission by Rebecca D.

Rebecca created a super cute layout about her son – is he not a cutie-pie?!

She was inspired by the colors in last week’s magazine cover and made sure the photos stood out.

I love the quote: “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.”

Be sure to stop by Rebecca’s blog to see her other creations and to learn about additional challenges she likes.

Week 69 Submission by Jennie G.

Jennie created a fun card for those of who might occasionally miss a birthday (or two…or four!).

She was inspired by the many colors in our inspiration piece and now she’s ready…for when she’s not ready.

I love the way she tied the twine around the card – nice finishing touch! And, a great way to use up some of our twine stash. ;)

Be sure to stop by Jennie’s blog to see what else she likes creating.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays -
Week 69 Submission by Sandy W.

Sandy created a great layout that documents her time putting together puzzles with her Dad.

Last week’s inspiration piece made her think of puzzles and she was sure to include a mix of colors.

I love the technique she used to create the background and the puzzle pieces!

Be sure to stop by Sandy’s blog to learn her tricks for creating a “pieced” background – ingenious!

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays -
Week 69 Submission by Nancy C.

Nancy created a great thank you card for someone who rocks!

She was inspired by the dark colors and the color red, the bright yellow building and the title in our inspiration piece.

I love how differently she interpreted the magazine cover – isn’t it awesome how everyone created such unique pieces?!

Be sure to stop by Nancy’s blog to see how she created the banner!

Suzi M.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 69 Submission by Suzi M.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays -
Week 69 Submission by Suzi M.

Suzi created a wonderful layout about her time in London, a favorite city of hers.

She was inspired by the city streets from our inspiration piece and she knew right away what she needed to create!

I love the view she captured (from her hotel window!) and the way she tied Christmas, the time of year she was in London, into this travel layout.

Be sure to stop by Suzi’s blog to learn a bit more about the second photo, the one with the snow globe.

A rule of travel and photography and life: never assume you can do it later!

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 69 Submission by Beverly J.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays -
Week 69 Submission by Beverly J.

Beverly created a two-page spread to document her son’s first visit home from college – precious!

She was inspired by the houses in our inspiration piece and used a collection from Echo Park (which, appropriately enough, is called “So Happy Together“).

I love the way she laid out the banner pieces as a foundation for her photos and those little houses are too cute!

Everyone looks very happy to have her young man home!

Be sure to stop by Beverly’s blog to get to know her and see what else she likes to make.

 

And now, hold onto your hats…I played along this week!

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 69 Submission by Steph H.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays -
Week 69 Submission by Steph

I created a quick 8×8 layout of one of my favorite photos of my husband and I.

I love architecture and was smitten by the buildings in last week’s inspiration piece.

And when I came across a box of notecards with city buildings on them, I knew exactly what I’d be creating – a small layout featuring us on the top of the Empire State Building!

To make the layout I fussy-cut the buildings out of the front of one of the notecards, added the piece on top of my photo, added a title and layered on some phrase strips and it was done – so quick and easy!

A quick tip:

If you aren’t sure if your letters will fit across a space, lay a clear ruler where you want to place your alphas and lay them out (see the photos below).

Once you know they’ll fit you can adhere them, using the ruler and the other letters as a guide for placement.

Another week of fun creations!

by Stephanie Hackney

Papercrafting Product Releases: Taylored Expressions Giveaway Winner!
Papercrafting with Taylored Expressions – more new products and one of you has won!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions (image)

Taylored Expressions – Makers of Stamps & Dies Since 2008

We recently shared the newest papercrafting product releases from Taylored Expressions and we gave you a chance to win.

Did you enter the giveaway?

Well, let’s see if you won!

But first, let’s take one more gander at the new Taylored Expressions stamps and dies and more…

Here are just some of the fun stamps and dies,
and other supplies, they’ve created for YOU!

Papercrafting Product Release: Mischief Maker Carried Away Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions Mischief Maker Carried Away Stamp Set

I love the name of this stamp set – Mischief Maker Carried Away!

That little cutie sure looks like she could cause some mischief.

In fact, it looks like she already has – she tied balloons to her pup and he’s about to float off into the sky!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - And Many More Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsAnd Many More Stamp Set

If you have little ones to make cards for then this And Many More stamp set is sure to make it easy and fun!

I love the little bird with the balloons and the “SUPER Tweet” sentiment that matches him perfectly.

Of course that little penguin is cute too – he’s perfect for delivering the message “Chill on your birthday.”

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Balloons Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsLittle Bits Balloons Stamp Set

If balloons are your thing, then this Little Bits Balloons dies set is a must-have.

Grab your paper scraps and start die-cutting your little heart out and you’ll soon have a stash of balloons for cards and pages for your favorite birthday girl or boy (and a lot less scraps to store!).

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - In & Out Birthday Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - In & Out Birthday Stamp Set

I LOVE the “EAT CAKE” sentiment in the In & Out Birthday stamp set!

Of course that could be because I’m trying to lose some weight and cake is off-limits right now!

But of course, it’s not off-limits for birthday boys and girls and this collection of sayings are perfect for making cards for both of them.

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Little Bits of Birthday Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsLittle Bits of Birthday Stamp Set

How about some “bitty” sayings?

This collection, Little Bits of Birthday, is just the thing for happy party decor – imagine a paper tablecloth stamped with these sayings.

Cute!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Party Grumplings Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsParty Grumplings Stamp Set

O.K. admit it, you laughed out loud when you saw these little Party Grumplings stamps, right?

Well if you didn’t, you need to take another look at them…and at the funny sayings that go along with their grumpy expressions!

My favorite saying?

Woo Frickin’ Hoo!”

How perfect for someone who’s not exactly delighted about having another birthday!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Party Grumplings Dies (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsParty Grumplings Dies

Of course, those little Party Grumplings above would be even better if they could be easily cut out and popped up.

Well, luckily, they can be!

Just grab this matching set of dies, the Party Grumplings dies, and you’re well on your way.

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Up Up & Away Cutting Plate (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Up Up & Away Cutting Plate

If “make party invitations” is on your to-do list, then the Up, Up & Away Cutting Plate should be on your shopping list.

How quick and easy would it be to cut this design out, apply it to card fronts and add “You’re Invited?”

Quick invites for sure!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Double the Fun Girl Sequins (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsDouble the Fun Girl Sequins

If bling’s your thing, then these Double the Fun Girl Sequins likely have you giddy!

And there’s a Double the Fun Boy Sequins version as well!

I’d love to have a whole line of colorful bottles like this one staring back at me from my shelves – how about you?

Heck, I might even use them! ;)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Matched Kit Double the Fun Papers (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsMatched Kit Double the Fun Papers 

And finally, there’s a festive collection of patterned papers and matching cardstock – the Matched Kit Double the Fun Papers.

Who doesn’t love 6×6 paper pads?


Wow, who’s ready to celebrate a birthday?

We are, we are!

And the collection of stamps, dies, sequins and papers above will do the trick whether you’re making cards, layouts or party decorations.

Now don’t forget to check out the rest of the birthday-themed products (yes, there are more!).


And now, it’s time to celebrate Halloween!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Little Bits Halloween Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsLittle Bits Halloween Stamp Set

I love the collection of words in the Little Bits of Halloween stamp set.

Can’t you see creating a “subway art” block of text with these and placing it on a scrapbook layout?

Or, using some of the adjectives to describe your little ghosts and goblins dressed in their Halloween costumes?

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Little Bits Halloween Scene Stamp Set (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Little Bits – Halloween Scene Dies

These Little Bits – Halloween Scene dies are just the thing for creating lots of little page or card accents.

And, they’re small enough to be used on that collection of scraps we all have - time to crash your stash!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Halloween Treat Toppers Dies (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsHalloween Treat Toppers Dies

The Halloween Treat Toppers dies are just the thing for making cupcake toppers – just add a toothpick to the back and voila!

But don’t stop there – slip a piece of baker’s twine through the opening in the die cut and you have quick and easy treat-bag tags!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Sack It Pumpkin Dies (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Sack It Pumpkin Dies

If pumpkins are your thing then the Sack It Pumpkin die set is a must-have!

Just like the other Taylored Expressions Sack It dies, this die set is designed to make it easy to create sacks, sacks for treats!

Be sure to check out the sample projects for this fun die set!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Spooky Trees Cutting Plate (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsSpooky Trees Cutting Plate

I know the Spooky Trees Cutting Plate is meant for creating trees for Halloween projects, but I think it’d be perfect for so much more!

I can see cutting out the trees and adding multi-colored Fall leaves to their branches, or cutting the trees from dark red paper and adding punched pink hearts for Valentine’s Day projects.

Or, creating “stained glass” by cutting this out of acetate and adding alcohol inks to the sections.

What do you think?

Perhaps you have even more ideas for using this cutting plate?

I bet you do!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Tangled Web Embossing Folder (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Tangled Web Embossing Folder

I have to have this Tangled Web Embossing Folder!

Besides the many possibilities for using it on Halloween pages and cards, I see it being used as a framework for Zentangles!

I can’t wait to get my hands on this and fill it with repeated shapes and patterns!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Zig Zag Embossing Folder (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsZig Zag Embossing Folder

The Zig Zag Embossing Folder is actually a part of the birthday products release, but I think it’d be ideal for Halloween as well.

How about embossing pieces of orange cardstock and inking the raised zig-zags with black ink?

Or, embossing some of the Hocus Pocus papers below?

Lots of creative options for this new product!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Hocus Pocus Sequins (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsHocus Pocus Sequins

More bling!

Again, if bling’s your thing, then Taylored Expressions has you covered!

These Hocus Pocus Sequins NEED to be added to your Halloween papercrafted projects!

The colors are perfectly suited to the papers below, but I see other uses as well.

The green sequins, when lined up appropriately, could become a lovely Christmas tree!

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored Expressions - Matched Kit Hocus Pocus Papers (image)

Papercrafting Product Release: Taylored ExpressionsMatched Kit Hocus Pocus Papers

And again, we have a perfectly matched set of 6×6 papers and cardstock – the Matched Kit Hocus Pocus Papers.

How fun are the patterns?

I’m partial to the paper with the candy on it. :)

O.k., I’ll admit it, I have a definite sweet tooth and staying away from sweets at this time of year is hard!


If Halloween is a time for partying and fun in your house, then the newest Halloween-themed products we shared above (and the other new Halloween products on the Taylored Expressions site) are just the ticket – the stamps and dies, embossing folders, and sequins and papers are sure to make marking the occasion even more fun!
