Gold Bird Notecards


The gold trend isn't going anywhere, and I'm totally OK with that. All the shimmery gold foil featured in holiday collections carry over nicely to winter and spring crafting.



I whipped up these quick notecards using base cards from Michaels and stickers from the December Club SEI Scrapbooking Kit. Without the red and green or holiday greetings, these delightful little birds make quite the statement on cards that can be used year-round. I love the clean-and-simple style. All that gold certainly makes a statement in itself, so less = more!



We challenge you this week to use your holiday craft supplies in a non-holiday way. What will you come up with? Share your ideas, links or photos in the comments!

Happy crafting,
Stephanie

Grandmother Scrapbook Layout

Greetings and welcome to the SEI Blog, it's Rhonda Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

I have a page to share with you featuring the bright and fun colors of the Spring Picnic collection. I chose the colors to showcase a photo of the boys with their Grandmother who had the most beautiful red hair.



To begin, I chose a white card stock background, then sprinkled a few drops of Red and Yellow Tumble Dye on the paper and let it dry. Then I sprayed a bit of black ink randomly as well.




I chose a few of my favorite papers in the collection with reds in them to contrast against the Grandmother sentiment from the Family Gathering Perforated Sheet that I wanted to use. After I selected the sentiment, I found a cute block shape that I chose to cut out and use as a layer.



The banner and love sentiment were die cuts from the collection papers. All of the elements came together so nicely for this page and I love the happy colors and feel of it.

Cute Owl Organizer

Hello SEI Fans!!

Piali here , today I have fun organizational project to share with you all.
Every year I reorganize my craft space round this time, as we all get lots of new craft supplies a little rearranging helps!
I always look for fun and affordable ideas.

Here is a project I created for my craft room...



I looooove owls.... so here is a fun pocket organizer!

I used SEI hoo's sweet chipboard owl kit, Denim sheet and beautiful paper from Summer Woods collection for this project.



I covered few of the chipboard pieces with Summer Woods paper using Mod Podge.
I also use the tumble Dye Blue spray to color in few chipboard pieces too.

I love the Denim sheet, it's like fabric...perfect for creating pockets!



To give my pocket a finished look, I applied tape adhesive on the back and folded the top edge. Then adhered the pocket with hot glue.
Assembled all the pieces and pocket to complete my organizer.



Looks cute...isn't it ?

I will hang it on the wall.



The pocket is perfect for storing, pencils, note pads and more...



Hope you like this idea!!!

Thanks for stopping by..
Happy Crafting!

Winter Scrapbook Layout


Hi, Connie with a Scrapbooking page using the Merry Mistletoe Collection with some Bright paper doilies and Red Tumble Dye as embellishments. This is another example of a Christmas Collection that has many possibilities for other uses. I love that about s.e.i. The papers are so versatile.




Speckle the background sheet with Red Tumble Dye. Add a 6" x 12" piece of pattern paper and adhere it to the center of the background sheet. Add stitching with machine or rubber stamp. Add Bright (red) paper doilies by s.e.i. and adhere photograph.



Embellish the page with die cuts and stickers found in the Merry Mistletoe Collection. Journal and add title.

Valentine's Day Turquoise & Red Heart Gift Bag


Hi there! Stephanie here, sharing a quick and easy project featuring the Hoo's Sweet collection. This collection is super fun and very versatile. The colors and playful design elements translate well for everyday projects or holidays. This Valentine's Day gift bag features the perforated "forever" and "love you" sentiment cards.



I used a plain turquoise gift bag from Target as my base, proof that your Valentine's Day projects don't have to be all red and pink. I love how the turquoise really pops against the shades of red.



A few punched-out hearts and a little bit of red glitter paper -- borrowed from my December SEI Scrapbooking Kit -- finish this festive and mod gift bag. Now all that's missing is the chocolate inside.



What are you making for Valentine's Day? Will you use this collection or another SEI favorite? We'd love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment!

Happy crafting,
Stephanie

Magical Holiday Scrapbook Layout


Greetings and welcome to the SEI Blog, it's Rhonda Van Ginkel and I have a holiday page to share with you today featuring the Glimmering Boughs collection.




Last year we took the family to a pioneer village for their holiday event which was such a great experience for the boys. There was a wooden sleigh that I took some photos of the kids in and of course the youngest was being silly so I captured some of those photos as well.



I started my page with the "All That Glitters" cream sheet, trimmed to 11x11 so I could layer it on top of the 12x12 "Cranberry Punch" sheet. The "All That Glitters" sheet has a beautiful embossed design that is very elegant.



Next, I selected a few borders from the Glimmering Boughs Border pack and you will see one at the top of the page and another in the design. I used a border punch to create my green layer, then selected the floral elements to build a flower. First, I pressure embossed the foiled red paper layers of my flower to add a bit of interest.

You will see several of the Stickers here as well as gems and a small doily from the coordinating Sundries pack.

DIY Happy New Year Banner


Hello SEI Fans!!

Happy New Year!!!
Today I have New Year Party decoration to share with you all!!!




A Banner!!!
I used SEI Banner kit for this project. The papers are from my all favorite Kraft Classic 12 x12 pad and Kraft Basics 12 x 12 pad. I love kraft and black combo, this works perfectly with the corrugated banner pieces.



I used my Silhouette cameo to the cut the letters & numbers. Simply attached the letters to the ribbon using hot glue.



Then threaded the banner pieces with the natural twine from the banner kit. Punched some stars using kraft & gold foiled paper, then adhered the star as the filler to my banner.
The banner is super sparkly and bright in real.

Here is a closeup view of the banner pieces..



I sprayed the fish tail banners with Gold Tumble Dye spray..it leaves a sparkly glitter shine after it dries! Then added fun diecut gold foiled stars. I used a die for this.

Love the SEI foiled cardstocks ... they cut like butter. Finally added 2016 numbers on it.

The banner looks super fun on the silver glittered background... perfect thing to welcome NEW Year 2016!!

Hope you all have a great year ahead!!!

Christmas Cards with Gold Metallic Accents


IIf you have some last-minute holiday cards to make, ​grab your December Club SEI Scrapbooking Kit. Just because the kit is designed for making scrapbook pages doesn't mean you can't use the supplies to make cards, tags or other holiday crafts.




I fell in love with the metallics and gold foil details featured in the design of these papers and embellishments. To further bring out the metallic accents for my cards, I picked up a stack of pre-folded gold-edged cards from Michaels. I simply cut the patterned paper to fit the size of each card front, then decorated with stickers and baubles. Using dimensional adhesive (foam squares) further makes the designs "pop." I can't wait to give these elegant cards to my family this year!





Happy Holidays,
Stephanie
