Card Front

Fold a 12 x 6-inch cardstock in half to make a 6-inch card base. Then fold the front of the card in half at 3-inches to create the easel function.


Cut 6-inch square from the Gratitude 02 patterned paper and 5.5-inch square from the Gratitude 06 patterned paper.


Place a Creative Photo Corner in Gold on each corner.

Die-cut several petals with the Sweet Cottage Flowers Dies Set with the green floral ORIGAMI paper. Stack the petals, and secure a pink brad in the center.

Kawaii Paper Goods: Heartfelt Thank You Ornament

This Heartfelt Thank You Ornament is part of the Kawaii Paper Goods Subscription Box Volume 1 Challenge! All the details are in my previous post to see, click Thankful Cascade Mini Album Tutorial, and another challenge, HAPPY Scrapbook Layout.

The subscription box is a quarterly kit full of exclusive papers and embellishments that will not be sold outside the kit. The challenge is open to those who purchased the kit and is worldwide. The winner receives a $30 Kawaii Paper Goods gift certificate and highlighted on their social media. If you're interested in purchasing, my friends at The Button Farm can help you out!

There are five-category challenges (deadline is Saturday, 5/30) and this is my home decor entry. Are you interested? Click Kawaii Paper Goods Subscription Bx Vol 1 Challenge (Public FB Post)!

**I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Spellbinders® Paper Arts for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**


Heartfelt Thank You Ornament Die Cuts

First, I nested the large and small circles together, secure with washi tape, and ran them through my die-cutting machine. This created my ring. Repeat with the green patterned paper to make a total of two rings. I cut one to intertwine and layer into one another. Pick out a die cut from the Gratitude Ephemera Pack and secure all with Adhesive Dots Medium.


Making the Flowers Come to Life

For the flowers, I die-cut the Sweet Cottage Flowers (medium and small blossoms) with the Origami Papers. The smaller flower had three layers and the larger had four layers. Thread a brad into each flower to secure. Mist with water and manipulate the petals for a realistic look. Then tap in onto the edges of the petals.



Cut off the liners from two Creative Photo Corner in Gold. They will accent the smaller flower (think leaves).


Embellishing the Rings

Place the corners on the lower-left area of the rings, using the flower as a guide. Then add an Adhesive Dot Medium on the back of the flower and adhere in between the corners.


Adhere the large flower on top of the die cut with an Adhesive Dot Medium.


Decorating the Ornament

Apply Adhesive Dots Medium randomly around the back of the rings. Then remove the top liners and adhere to the front of the plastic ornament. The ornament is a flat-round shape so it's easy to adhere.


Place 3D Foam Circles on the back of the Thank You sentiment die cut and center it on the front of the ornament.


Using Sparkling Bubble Rhinestones in Light Yellow and sequins with Adhesive Dots Micro, randomly place around the rings. Inside the ornament, add the lace trim as a filler. But you can add little trinkets, candy, or glitter instead. Thread ribbon to display!

Kawaii Paper Goods: HAPPY Scrapbook Layout Tutorial

This HAPPY Scrapbook Layout is part of the Kawaii Paper Goods Subscription Box Volume 1 Challenge! All the details are in my previous post to see, click Thankful Cascade Mini Album Tutorial.

The subscription box is a quarterly kit full of exclusive papers and embellishments that will not be sold outside the kit. The challenge is open to those who purchased the kit and is worldwide. The winner receives a $30 Kawaii Paper Goods gift certificate and highlighted on their social media. If you're interested in purchasing, my friends at The Button Farm can help you out!



There are five-category challenges (deadline is this Monday, 5/25) and this is my 12 x 12-inch scrapbook layout entry. Are you interested? Click Kawaii Paper Goods Subscription Bx Vol 1 Challenge (Public FB Post)!

**I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Spellbinders® Paper Arts for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**


HAPPY Background

I wanted to do something different with my background and a way to use up extra washi tape! Loved how this turned out :) Trim the ends of the Gratitude Washi Tape and tuck behind in the back.


Origami Rolls

Next, I rolled three different designs of Gratitude ORIGAMI papers diagonally (to make it longer) and secured with an Adhesive Dots Small on the ends. Set aside.


Layered Panel Details

I cut a panel from the Gratitude 05 patterned paper and fussy cut the frame out. I'll use the rest for another future project.


Cut 9.5 x 4.5-inch rectangle from the mauve cardstock and make a fish-tail on the left side. Then cut 5.5 x 3.75-inch rectangle from Gratitude 02 patterned paper and ink the edges of it and the small cut-aparts from Gratitude 05 patterned paper.


Add a Creative Corner in Gold on each corner of the rectangle patterned paper. Using the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong adhesive, place on a slight angle on top of the fish-tail cardstock.


Add 3D Foam Strips on all four sides of the frame and place it on top of the layer. Don't press yet as you will be tucking in more layers.


Tuck in the small cut-aparts with a combination of the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong and 3D Foam Strips. Press everything to secure.


Finishing Up the Layers

With the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong adhesive, adhere the layered cardstock to the 12 x 12 scrapbook page. Then, secure all the paper rolls on the left side of the layered frame with several Adhesive Dots Medium.


Print out your favorite photo and adhere it to the left-side of the open frame with the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong adhesive.


Die-cut the oval frame shape with white cardstock and secure it on top of the rolled papers with a couple of Adhesive Dots Medium.


Add a die cut from the Gratitude Ephemera Pack with a piece of Crafty Foam Tape in White on the lower right corner of the frame.


Add sequins into a small Keepsake Envelope, take the liner off and seal the flap. After taking the back liner off, tuck it behind the photo as an accent.


This is how the layered panel looks like so far.


Working on the Embellishing

Apply mauve cardstock on a piece of 3D Creative Sheet Medium and die-cut the letters HAPPY. Take off the liner and place it underneath the layered panel.


After stacking the die cuts, secure them with a brad in the center and adhere with a couple of Adhesive Dots Medium to an oval die cut. Lightly mist the flowers with water to soften fibers and scrunch each layer to give it a more realistic look. Tap the edges of the flower and die cut circle with ink. I accented the oval die cut with Sparkling Bubble Rhinestones in Light Yellow.


Lastly, I die-cut a small heart with 3D Foam Creative Sheet Small.


After adding it to the H, peel off the top liner and apply gold glitter foil on top (color side UP) from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets in Holographic. Rub the foil with the fingertip to transfer the color. I randomly added sequins with Adhesive Dots Micro and some Sparkling Bubble Rhinestones in Light Yellow. And Done!

Kawaii Paper Goods: Thankful Cascade Mini Album Tutorial

This Thankful Cascade Mini Album is part of the Kawaii Paper Goods Subscription Box Volume 1 Challenge! What is that? Well, I'll tell you! LOL!

Last year, Kawaii Paper Goods debuted in the U.S. through a few Scrapbook Expo shows. They are a NEW paper company from Japan and have the most kawaii (cute/adorable in Jpn) designs. The paper is about 80+ lbs and good quality. They have retailers in the U.S. carrying their collections like my favorite online stores: The Button Farm and A Cherry on Top (ACOT).

The subscription box is a quarterly kit full of exclusive papers and embellishments that will not be sold outside the kit. I purchased mine at ACOT and now they're sold out! The challenge is open to those who purchased the kit and is worldwide. The winner receives a $30 Kawaii Paper Goods gift certificate and highlighted on their social media.

There five-category challenges (deadline: 5/25) and this is my Cascade Book entry. Are you interested? Click: Kawaii Paper Goods Subscription Bx Vol 1 Challenge (Public FB Post)!

Thanks for reading this far! But wait, there's more! LOL! The fun part!

**I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Spellbinders® Paper Arts for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**


Cascade Mini Book Video Tutorial:

First I'd like to share the Cascade Book with One Sheet of Paper video by my sweet & talented friend, Emi Kume, and then I'll show you my take on how I made it my own!


Margie's Take on the Challenge

For the Cascade Book Base, I used the Gratitude 03 patterned paper from the subscription box kit. I started with the front cover, I wanted to add a floral focal so I die-cut several petals with the Sweet Cottage Flowers Die Set with the floral ORIGAMI paper.


After stacking the die cuts, secure them with a brad in the center and adhere with an Adhesive Dot Large to a circle die cut. Lightly mist the flowers with water to soften fibers and scrunch each layer to give it a more realistic look. Tap the edges of the flower and die cut circle with ink. Adhere the embellishment to the paper ribbon with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong adhesive.


Then take the small cut-outs from Gratitude 05 patterned paper, and a cardstock rectangle slightly bigger than the others (which the sides were distressed) and ink all of the edges.


Stack and adhere the layers haphazardly. Adhere it onto the left side of the front (under the paper ribbon) with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong adhesive.


Using Adhesive Dots Small, I adhered the paper ribbon to the front page and accented the circle die cut with Sparkling Bubble Rhinestones in Light Yellow.


The Second Page

The second page is an accent page with a playful feature with Gratitude Washi Tape and Creative Photo Corners in Gold. I pleated a piece of tape and centered it on a piece of scrap paper. Then inked the edges before placing strips of Crafty Foam Tape in White.


Stack two rows of Creative Photo Corners in Gold for a layered border on the top and bottom of the washi tape feature. Remove the liner from the Crafty Foam Tape in White and align it over the first set of corners. Repeat for the bottom.


Remove all the liners and center onto the second page. Done!


The Third Page

I cut a 3.5-inch square and in the middle, cut a 2.5-inch square to create a frame. On each corner, I added a Creative Photo Corner in Gold to accent, and around the sides, I added 3D Foam Strips, for lift. Adhere the frame to the third page.


Next, I placed the center with a small 2-inch Keepsake Envelope which I filled with a piece of scrap paper, die cut and sequins. Lastly, add three Sparkling Bubble Rhinestones in Light Yellow on the lower right corner of the frame.


The Fourth Page

Again, grabbing a piece of scrap paper, I cut to 2.75 x 3-inch, inked the edges, and placed a Creative Photo Corner in Gold on each corner. After applying the E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong adhesive, I centered it on the page. Using the Beautiful die cut from the Gratitude Ephemera Pack, I added 3D Foam Circles on each end and adhere it on the bottom of the rectangle paper. You can tuck in a quote or picture.


Inside the Easel

I kept the inside of the easel simple so that it would not add more bulk. On the inside back, I used a large Keepsake Envelope with the flap on the side - it was a perfect fit! I filled it with the same circle die cut used in the front, a Floral Spray die cut and sequins.



On the other side, I added a Home Decor die cut using 3D Foam Circles to lift so that you can tuck anything behind it.


Lastly, the back was covered with a piece of 3.75 x 4 3/8-inch square cardstock. Each corner had a Creative Photo Corner in Gold and adhered to the album with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong adhesive.


Here's another look at my project. I loved how it turned out and definitely will make another! Thanks, Emi! What do you think? Make one and share your link here on this post!
