Magic Color Slider Card MEETS Shaker Card! Posted on 09 Aug 23:11 , 1 comment

I love both magic color slider cards and shaker cards, so I wanted to bring the two together for one awesome card. This fall inspired card uses Melody Lane Designs Holly Digital paper and Maymay Made It's  “Memory Lane” Stamp set. This would make a great fall birthday card for the man in your life. The card basics to cut are listed below. You can see how to make this card in my youtube video. However, while putting this one together, there were some mistakes. I decided to leave them in, both to show we all make mistakes – but more importantly how to correct those mistakes. If you make this card be sure and share it on the Melody Lane Digital facebook page.

Cut from Holly Digital Paper:

            Card Base 7”x10”

            Card Front 5”x7”

            Inside Mat 4 ¾”x6 ¾ ”

Cut from White Cardstock (I used 110lb.)

            Mat 4 ½”x6 ½”

            Mat for slider 4 ¼”x5 ¾”

            2 Strips ¼”x6”

            1 Strip ¼”x4”

Acetate

            2 Pieces – 4 7/8”x6”

Pocket Card by Georgia Carl Posted on 22 Mar 10:01 , 0 comments

 I wanted to create a card that had a pocket for either a message or gift card. My original design was for Christmas, but for this example I made one for a birthday or other special occasion using Melody’s Digital paper. This project actually used 3 different paper sets: Madison, Fairy and Becky! I love trying to come up with new designs and using this paper was a breeze! Even though I used 3 different designs, the colors all went together! You can change this card up to fit any occasion! Enjoy and let us see what you create. I have included my design space file, as well as dimensions for cutting it out with a paper trimmer.

Pop Up Slider Card for Valentine's Day by Georgia Carl Posted on 31 Jan 09:49 , 5 comments

I found this cute pop up slider card design on youtube by Jan Brown. I wanted to re-create it in design space. So here is the finished project. I used Melody Lane’s Zoey Digital Paper and her SVG: Life is too short to be anything but Sexy! Remember to use the code GEORGIA40X to get 40% off your entire order at Melody Lane Designs! For my stamping I used Maymay Made It "Love Is" Stamp set. I used the chomas engraving tip to “write” the svg on my heart, then colored in to make it pop. This card is quick to put together, under 15 minutes! You can change it up for any season or holiday! In my cut file I included 3 different toppers, hearts, ovals and a rectangle. You could easily put your own creation on the front!

Double Dutch Fold Card by Georgia using Grace Digital Paper Posted on 17 Oct 07:52 , 0 comments

My inspiration for this Double Dutch Fold Card was by FaithfuleCreations on youtube. I needed a card for a baby shower and this one was perfect. I also added a pop-up element on the inside. Melody Lane's "Grace" Digital Paper gave all the colors in one page that I wanted for my background pieces, pink, yellow, purple and hints of blues. If you don't have a Cricut, just watch FaithfuleCreations video and you will be making it in no time.

Twist Turn Pop Up Card by Georgia! Posted on 14 Sep 07:35 , 4 comments

So, I found another unique fold card to share with you! My inspiration was Holly Young on Youtube. I watched others after hers, but hers was the first! I fell in love with it, so I went to trusty Cricut Design Space and created a file for it. But my "twist" on the card, was to make it a pop-up card! Using Melody Lane's "Lola" Digital Paper was a natural. The piece I used seemed to have movement which went well with the stamp set I was using. And the colors spoke fall to me. If you don't have a Cricut, just watch Holly's video and you will be making it in no time.

You can use my Cricut File and the possibilities are endless! I used Art Impressions Stamps to complete my card, but you could do diecuts from Cricut, stamps, stickers or whatever your imagination dreams up! Come join me on Youtube and I will show you how to assemble this card!

6 Fold Card by Georgia using Carole Digital Paper Posted on 06 Sep 08:26 , 0 comments

Love the new Carole Digital Paper by Melody Lane! I saw 6 fold cards being made on Youtube, and wondered, Can I re-create it in Cricut Design Space? I don't know about you, but when I like the design of a card, if I plan on using it again I like to create it in Design Space so I can just bring up my file and cut as many as I want!

Melody's new Carole paper was the perfect choice for this card. I was asked to make a card and to make it simple, not overly embellished. Maymay Made It Feathers Scripture Stamp Set and Fun Stampers Journey Every Day Stamp Set completed this card.

I designed this wedding card using Melody Lane Designs Skylar Digital Paper. I loved the look of it embossed and distressed! I had a contest on Melody Lane Designs Digital Paper Facebook Page asking for ideas as to what to create with this paper. I only had 2 entries, and both said a wedding card. So that is what I did! And since only 2 people entered, they both are winners!!!! Congratulations to Stacy Matthews and Susan Forti! Your project and few goodies will be in the mail soon!
