Ewe-N-Me Printables Free! + Blog Hop

Today I’m joining my friend Deena Davis and her design team for Ewe-N-Me Printables blog hop! I was invited to join the hop as their guest designer, for which I’m very thankful. This is a great hop because all those who leave a comment on the participating blogs will receive ALL of the files used by us!

Deena designed a vintage tag with a beautiful rose image! I decided to fussy cut it, add glitter to it and decoupage it mounting it on top of the another tag. I matched it with the patterned paper I designed recently since I found the patterns looked great together! I added some pretty Valentine’s die cuts, pearls and ribbon all on top of a metallic cardstock base.

This hop will run for three days Feb. 6th, 7th and 8th, 2015 (free files will be available on Feb. 9th). Visit each Design Team Member’s blog and check out our exclusive Valentine designs

Christmas Tag

I have a Christmas tag to share with you today, made with Ewe-N-Me Printables’ Cocoa/Treat Envelope – Holiday Kris 101. I love this vintage Santa image.

I printed the Holiday Kris 101 image and die cut the Santa using a label die with a delicate border. I die cut a second label from metallic embossed cardstock in cream. I mounted the Santa image to the metallic die cut and then adhered a white cardstock label on the back too, to add a message. Finally I added glitter glue to the Christmas tree on the image, trying not to wet the paper too much.

This framed Santa would certainly look great on a card too! I invite you to experiment with this lovely vintage file and find out what you can come up with!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Thanksgiving Greetings

Thanksgiving was celebrated recently in Canada, but it’s yet to be celebrated in the United States, so I still have time to share some crafty ideas for it. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving where I leave, but we used to do some abundant and fun dinners at the american school where I studied… Good old days!

Today I have a card I made using a cute vintage collage from Ewe-N-Me Printables called Collage Sheet – Thanksgiving 102. I used the image of the girl holding a mirror for the turkey that simply blew my mind… How adorable and vintage is that image!

I made a card with lots and lots of layers and though this is a Fall card the color palette is very different. I picked the colors on the image for my card’s color combination. I framed the image and made it the focal point of the card. I added a rosette, embellished with Fall leaves I die cut, colored with pigment and distress inks, and with Inkagold in yellow gold, to give them a nice shimmer. Other elements added were a die cut doily folded in half, gold cording and some crystals.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card and if you need to make some cards I highly suggest you visit Ewe-N-Me Printables’ store, because they have lots and lots of beautiful files for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back in a bit with a new card for you, so stay tuned.

Two in One: Christmas Card and Envelope

Who doesn’t love a 2 for 1 offer? Well, today I have a 2 in 1 project I made with a printable from Ewe-N-Me! Basically I am talking about one single digital file that can be cut and used in many different ways.

I made a card and an envelope from Gift Card Envelope – Holiday Kris 101.  I printed the file twice, once on regular white bond paper and once on white cardstock. I cut the one printed on paper as it comes originally, to make my envelope. And then I cut the one printed on cardstock trimming all the flaps, so I was left with a note card.

I did print the file for the note card slightly smaller so it would fit on the envelope. You can do this by simply adjusting the printing size to 95% (or smaller if you wish). These options pop up right before printing the pdf file.

As you can see the note card will have a nice image on both sides, as well as the envelope. I really love how they look. This is a simple and pretty way to add a personalized card to a Christmas gift, and the vintage image is so nice, I must add!

I hope you like the project, and try it out yourself. Usually people think these printables use too much ink, but they don’t necessarily. I invite you to visit Ewe-N-Me Printables store and take a look at all the new stuff that’s been added.

Stay tuned because on November we’ll have a series of Christmas projects that you won’t want to miss! Also, we have new DT members that are creating amazing projects every week on Ewe-N-Me Printables blog, so make sure you subscribe!

Thanks so much for stopping by everyone! Have a nice weekend!

Vintage Tag

Today I want to share with you a tag I made for  Ewe-n-Me Printables! I worked with the same collage sheet I used for last friday’s vintage card: Collage Sheet – Roses. I, without planning, used the same image from the sheet, only the smaller one (the collage includes two of each image, a small and a large one). 

This is a 5 1/2″ x 3″ tag I stamped, heat embossed, colored and distressed with ink, all on a vintage handwriting patterned paper. The small collage image was also distressed and mounted on the tag. This is a very nice and simple vintage project anyone can try out and it would certainly look very pretty on a gift bag.

// Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you liked my tag and that you feel inspired to create some projects of your own with this lovely digitals too!

Rose Culture

Hello! Today I want to share with you a project I made with Ewe-n-Me Printables! This time, I made a vintage card, using their Collage Sheet – Roses. These images are beautiful, and they print so bright and pretty… Love them!

I used an unusual color combination to make this card and I love how it resulted. It really looks vintage and lovely. I couldn’t resist adding a gold vintage button to the blue bow to finish my design.

I printed the digital image on white linen cardstock. The die cuts I used framed the image very nicely. I used light brown leather textured cardstock and light blue metallic cardstock for the frames. The yellow cardstock used for the card base is lightly textured and it’s called Hawaii where I live.

I altered the largest frame to make it shorter. I basically cut it in half and adhered it again trying to get the right height for the front of the card. I ran across the middle of the frame a piece of blue satin ribbon and embellished it with a bow. This trick helped cover the die cut alteration.

I hope you liked my card. The collage sheet has so many pretty images, you could very easily make a complete set of cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

WINNER + Tutorial + NEW Giveaway!

Scroll down for winner and new giveaway.

You know how much I like to expand digital printables but today I went beyond! LOL. I can’t believe I made a round box from a note card printable… That’s right, from a note card!

One of Ewe-N-Me Printables recent release is Small Note Card and Envelope with Hang Tags – Victorian Floral. I love this set, and I love how Deena created so many complementary elements for this Victorian Floral Collection. I’ll show you how to make this box using the printable note card from this set.

A. To make the box base:

1. Cut or die cut 2 circles from cardstock. I used a Spellbinders Classic Circle die to cut 3 1/2″ circles.

2. Cut one strip of cardstock for the base. I cut mine 2 3/4″ wide.
3. Use one cardstock circle as your base and adhere the strip of cardstock around it. Make sure you glue it to the edge of your circle base and that you use a good clear adhesive. I used a gel silicone glue and I added it from the inside so any excess can be matted later.
4. Cut another strip of cardstock for the box top. I cut mine 1 1/2″ wide.
5. Repeat step 2 for the top.

B. To cover the box.
1b. Print the Note Card page twice. I printed it a little larger, at 110%.
2b. From the first print, cut the front of the note card in half lenghtwise.

3b. From the second print, cut or die cut a circle.

4b. Cover the box base with the pieces you cut on step 1b.
5b. Cover the top with the circle you cut on step 2b.

As an optional step you can layer the inside, but I only layer it were I used adhesive, the bottom of the box, and the inside of the box top. I did that with a slightly smaller circle cut from the same cardstock used for the base.

Delicate Note Card

Hello and welcome to a new post for Ewe-N-Me Printables. Have you been to the store lately? Lots of new designs have been added and of course I have to share some with you today. 

Deena Davis, owner and designer of Ewe-N-Me Printables, and I collaborated to create a beautiful set: Gift Box and Tea Envelopes – Vintage Roses, that matches my latest paper pack release: Keys & Roses

This set includes two different templates, a cube box and tea bags that fit perfectly inside. The box of course, is so versatile that it can be used for many other projects besides a tea box. You can also find both templates sold separately: Printable Gift Box – Vintage Roses and Tea Bag Envelope – Vintage Roses.

I have a very special project I made using this set, but you’ll have to wait to see it. So stay tuned and come back on the last week of August to see what I created. This project will also be featured at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous’ blog (yay!).

Other beautiful new products available now at Ewe-N-Me Printables are Cocoa/Treat Envelope – Victorian Floral and Small Note Card and Envelope with Hang Tags – Victorian Floral. Today I will be using both sets to make a delicate note card with a matching envelope.

These digital designs are so well made and so detailed, all you need to do is cut. They already come distressed for you and as you can see they even have some little borders, which makes it easy to use for making cards or gift envelopes. 
For today’s project I started off by printing the templates on white linen cardstock. I printed two note cards from Small Note Card and Envelope with Hang Tags – Victorian Floral. I used the second print to die cut an oval and do a simple decoupage layer on the front of the card. I added a piece of gross grain ribbon in soft pink across the front of the card (horizontally) beneath the die cut and the card base and embellished it’s corners with Baby Pearls – LeCreme. I also added a little glitter glue to the center of the large flowers on the oval die cut that gives them a very nice subtle shimmer.

For the matching envelope I printed Cocoa/Treat Envelope – Victorian Floral, that was actually made to match the note card (it fits perfectly).

I hope you liked today’s post! If you’d like to purchase the printables I used today, please visit Ewe-N-Me’s store or click on the links listed above. These printables are so nice to work with and of such great quality, I can assure you that you’ll enjoy them greatly!

Thanks so much for your visit.

Accordion Bookmark Card

Hello and welcome to a new post for Ewe-N-Me Printables! As always, my mission is to inspire you to use your digital files in a creative, original way. Today, I’m using Bookmarks – Bring Flowers. I like the floral design these bookmarks have and I loved the fact that in the file you get when you purchase it, the bookmarks are next to each other, which makes this project really easy to make.

I printed the file twice, scored as shown above and adhered one of the images to the back of the other. That way the floral images show in any direction one opens the card.

To finish the design I added some ribbon, stamps, die cuts and fused string pearl beads on top, instead of the usual ribbon.

I really hope you enjoyed this project! Please visit the store and check out the infinite amount of digital files available… I know you’ll find something you like at a very affordable price! If you’d like to purchase this specific image, click here.

If you have any questions feel free to leave me a comment here or at my blog.

Thanks for your visit!
