2016 Perpetual Planner

Hi there! My name is Tya Smith and this is my very first blog post as a new member of the Snap Click Supply Design team and I am so happy to be here! I am excited to share with you today this really fun and easy to put together perpetual planner. I don’t know about you but as soon as the New Year comes around, my thoughts turn to setting organization goals for the upcoming year. One of the areas that I really want to focus on this year is having a plan for my memory keeping and this planner was an easy solution to get me on the right track to stay organized.

I started with the Life Planner templates from Lori Whitlock. They were just what I needed to get my ideas down for planning out my pages. I loved how there is a spot to sketch out my layout and also lines next to each date for a little journaling about what happened that day.

The templates come as a PDF file so I opened up Week 1 and got to work.

I used the adorable Typeset Collection by Basic Grey for the papers and elements on my pages. There are so many darling shapes and elements that were perfect for my planner.

I started with a letter sized document and then began dragging and dropping papers and elements into the document to make my page. Here is Week 1:

I also designed a cover to go on the front page of my planner. I am going to use a 3 ring binder and page protectors to put the pages in. These will be easy to pull in and out and edit when I need to by using this method.

Hopefully by utilizing this method I will be able to keep on track and plan my pocket scrapbook layouts for the 2016 year. Hopefully I have inspired you to create this fun and easy planner for your own use. With a few simple files and a cute binder- you too can have a cute planner of your own. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Gift Tags Candice Meyer featuring Echo Park Hybrid's The Story of Christmas digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #freeprintable #digitalscrapbooking

Hello Snap Click Supply fans! It’s Candice Meyer here to share a few fun Holiday gift tag ideas that are beautiful AND quick to make! Picking a pack to work with was difficult since there are so many gorgeous Holiday digital designs on Snap Click Supply’s store! I fell in love with the elements The Story of Christmas Collection by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park. This mega-pack is brimming over with darling details, charming script phrases, and even a festive font option!

Gift Tags Candice Meyer featuring Echo Park Hybrid's The Story of Christmas digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #freeprintable #digitalscrapbooking

To make this project quick and easy, I relied on foundational shapes from one of my favorite collections: Lori Whitlock’s Label Brush Set B. I selected several fun designs to be the base of each gift tag. The basic process:

  1. Open up a new transparent document sized 5×7.
  2. Use your brush tool to create a tag base.
  3. Drag elements from the Story of Christmas onto the tag.
  4. Use the print and cut feature of the silhouette machine to cut out your new tag designs.
  5. Embellish your tags with glitter, gold edging, rhinestones, metallic nailheads, and ribbon!

Gift Tags Candice Meyer featuring Echo Park Hybrid's The Story of Christmas digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #freeprintable #digitalscrapbooking

To make this cute little gift tag, I clipped a wooden background paper [The Story of Christmas] onto one of the square ticket designs [Label Brush Set B]. I added the darling banner at the top so it draped across the shape. The “To” and “From” were alpha characters from element pack 4 [Story of Christmas]. To make these elements pop, I used the “Fill Layer” option to change their coloring from red to white. Be sure to use the guidelines feature to double check your letters are lined up perfectly! After this shape was printed, I edged it with a Krylon gold leafing pen.

Gift Tags Candice Meyer featuring Echo Park Hybrid's The Story of Christmas digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #freeprintable #digitalscrapbooking

I couldn’t resist using the banner element one more time—as a large focal item on a gift package! To make this shape easy for my silhouette to cut out, I added a stroke selection to the outline of the banner. (I just wanted it to be barely visible so I set the width to 3 px.) Once printed and cut, I simply glued this large graphic to the top of my gift! I added a golden metallic nailhead in each of the pom pom circles for extra sparkle. Such an easy gift idea with a definite wow factor!

The long ribbon tag from Brush Set B is perfect for attaching to a gift bag this Holiday season. I kept the background white and simply clipped the “Deck the Halls” saying element to the shape. Two additional holly images completed the look!  Again, I added a barely visible stroke line around the tag outline so it would be easy for my silhouette to cut out. Once printed and cut, I embellished the holly berries with red rhinestones!

Gift Tags Candice Meyer featuring Echo Park Hybrid's The Story of Christmas digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #freeprintable #digitalscrapbooking

Shades of blue and aqua happen to be my favorite color palette. This tag will compliment your gift giving activities all winter long! I spelled out the word “JOY” using a combination of letters and graphics. The “J” and “Y” were made using my favorite san serif font and the “O” was a snowflake circle medallion from The Story of Christmas collection. Once again, I used guidelines to ensure that everything lined up perfectly.

I added two additional snowflake elements to the corners for added interest. Since I didn’t want these designs competing with the focal point, I set the opacity to 64%. Once my tag was printed and cut, I edged the outline with aqua glitter. Optional: Pop up the center snowflake circle using double sided foam tape to create dimension! For added sparkle, I outlined the snowflake medallion with crystal glitter.

Gift Tags Candice Meyer featuring Echo Park Hybrid's The Story of Christmas digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #freeprintable #digitalscrapbooking

The striped border on this tag was created by first dragging paper #10 onto the background shape. Then, I used the shape tool to create a large rectangle spanning the entire tag—this simple action created a digital washi tape effect since only the borders of the striped paper are showing on my tag!

Any of the script words [Cheer, Christmas, Merry] in The Story of Christmas collection would be beautiful focal points for your gift tags! I paired the “Cheer” graphic with the present element on this classic tag shape. Positioning a star garland near the top completed my design. Once the tag was printed and cut, I added red glitter to the “Cheer” script, rhinestones to the star garland, and popped up the present using double sided foam tape.

There are so many amazing possibilities using The Story of Christmas mega-pack to design your Holiday gift tags! Hopefully, this post sparks your creativity… we’d love to see your handmade gift tags this season – be sure to share them on our Facebook page!

Hi!  It’s Betsy here and I’d like to share my December project and layout with you.  I’ve been working with limited supplies lately since my craft area is packed away as we do some minor construction.  Knowing I’d still need to satisfy my creative urges, I kept a few things handy to create with: all of my solid cardstock, a few storage bags of patterned paper, and a handful of embellishments including sequins and a pack of wooden hexagons. It’s times like these, when supplies are thin, where a full digital stash comes in handy.

Together by Betsy Sammarco 1

I used the whimsical Stitched Snowflakes from Nancie Rowe Janitz on my wooden hexagons as embellishments.

Stitched Snowflakes by Nancie Rowe Janitz

I was stuck creatively on how to lay out my hexagons on the 12×12 canvas. I went to Pinterest and searched for the word “hexagons”.  This is how the resulting pins from this search inspired me to create this layout.

  1. Instead of clumping the hexagons together, I spread them out in a meandering line similar to the wall decorations here.
  1. My hexagons didn’t seem “grounded” to me until I was this card and decided to back the entire hexagon grouping with a bright cardstock.
  1. Titles are always the most difficult part of a layout for me, but this card prompted me to try my title (and journaling) on a banner.

Using these three creative ideas, I produced a layout I love:

Mini Recipe Book

Mini Recipe Book by Candice Meyer featuring the Echo Park Paper Made From Scratch digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply #minibook #DIYrecipebook

Hello Snap Click Supply fans! It’s Candice Meyer here to share a mini recipe book idea that’s perfect for documenting all your cherished Holiday recipes. I created this darling book using elements and papers from the  Echo Park Made From Scratch collection I just love all the baking, food, and utensil graphics included in this fun pack!

Mini Recipe Book by Candice Meyer featuring the Echo Park Paper Made From Scratch digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply #minibook #DIYrecipebook

I selected Carina Gardner’s Essential 4×6 vertical bracket album as my book base. I cut out the cover on my silhouette using a printed sheet of aqua paper from the Made From Scratch collection. The center panel of the book template folds into a cute pocket– perfect for holding a selection of special recipe cards! Since I wanted this section of my book to “pop” with color and interest, I printed off a striped page of paper to run through my silhouette. With my book structure in place, all I needed to do was embellish!

Mini Recipe Book by Candice Meyer featuring the Echo Park Paper Made From Scratch digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply #minibook #DIYrecipebook

I focused first on creating the cover design. I love to cluster 3 larger elements together to form a focal point. I also like to pop one or several graphics up using foam tape to add dimension to my composition. Here, the aqua “Recipes” element is elevated, as well as the heart underneath the “Made with Love” graphic. Other fun details: aqua washi tape along the side embellished with a line of gold metallic nail heads, the date written in golden sticker numbers, and a red twine bow tied to the skillet.

The inside cover is the perfect spot to place a photo that goes along with your recipes. Since I selected a colorful sheet of paper to cut out the pocket page, I kept my embellishments in this section simple. I simply added a fork and spoon cutout and a rectangle “Recipes” element.

Mini Recipe Book by Candice Meyer featuring the Echo Park Paper Made From Scratch digital collection available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply #minibook #DIYrecipebook

I love that the Made From Scratch collection contains a full page of beautiful recipe cards! I printed off this page, cut them up, and slipped them into the pocket. So easy!

I turned the “When Life Gives You Lemons…” rectangular element into a card that I attached onto my back cover. To dress up the inside, I ran a border of aqua washi tape along the top and bottom, as well as clustered another grouping of 3 graphics in the corner. Four rhinestones add a touch of sparkle to the “Sweet as Honey” medallion.

Hybrid Thanksgiving Bottle Tags

Hello All! Tammy Circeo from the design team here with an idea to dress up your beverage bottles for Thanksgiving using elements and papers from Mye De Leon’s Gather Together kit.

Hybrid Bottle Tags by Tammy Circeo featuring the Gather Together collection by Mye De Leon available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #thanksgiving

I headed out to Silhouette America to find a bottle tag that I could cut on my Cameo because that’s easiest, but if you don’t have a cutting machine, simply measure a rectangle 7½ x 3 inches, then make a fold line at 2¾ inches from one end. You can leave it square or round it off as you wish. The hole is just barely over 1¾ inches and could be punched with a circle punch. You could also cut the bottom edge decoratively with scissors or punches.

I chose just a few elements and papers, but this kit is full of wonderful options to decorate bottle tags for many occasions … not just Thanksgiving!

I might have gotten a little carried away with making tags, but it really was so simple and the possibilities with the papers and elements were endless.

I even broke in my new Minc machine … foiling is so easy!

I love the bottle tag that Lori Whitlock designed for the Silhouette because it has a pocket folded over the back where you can stick a little note for the host. Expressing your gratitude, of course.

The sky is the limit with these tags so as you prepare to honor your hosts for holiday parties, welcome new neighbors to the neighborhood, or celebrate an anniversary or birthday, consider fancying up those beverage bottles. Happy celebrating!

Hybrid Halloween Treat Packaging

Happy Halloween, everybody!  I just love Fall and am getting excited about the upcoming festivities that go along with it.  Now, if the weather in South Texas would just cool off a bit (we are still experiencing 90+ degree temps here) we might get into the spirit a little more.  Regardless of what Mother Nature delivers, I am ready to surprise my neighbors with these cute Halloween treats!
Halloween 2015 Photo 2 - by Julie Walker
I picked up a few containers at Target’s $1 spot, but any empty jar/bag/box/container will work for this project – it’s easily adaptable!  Next, I created an 8 1/2″ x 11″ document in Photoshop.  Then, using Mye De Leon’s Spookalicious kit, I simply chose a few of the circle tags and other embellishments that I knew would look good on my jars and pulled them onto my blank document.  I sized the elements to fit my jars, printed the page, and cut out each item.

See how cute they look with just a few bits of bling attached?  I simply covered the circle tags, added a fun sentiment to a crazy skeleton straw, and strung a tag using some fiber.

Halloween Hybrid Mantel Ideas

Halloween Mantel by Candice Meyer featuring Echo Park Hybrid's Hocus Pocus collection available www.snapclicksupply.com #halloween #hybridproject

Hello Snap Click Supply fans! Candice Meyer here with a few fun ideas for dressing up your Halloween mantel. When I saw this darling burlap banner at Target, I knew it would be the perfect addition to my seasonal décor.

Halloween Mantel Candice Meyer 2

To add a little charm, I decided to embellish the letters with family photos and digital elements from the Hocus Pocus Collection by Echo Park Paper Co. There are so many festive pieces to choose from- whether you are making a card, decorating a scrapbook layout, or adding a little pizzaz to Holiday decorations!

This project was simple, fast, and fun! Here’s the recipe: PRINT, EMBELLISH, & ATTACH!

Halloween Mantel Candice Meyer 3

To make your embellishments stand out, here are a few ideas:

Add glitter! I used a glue pen to outline the areas I wanted to sparkle. Tip: Make sure the scrap piece of paper that you are using to catch the excess glitter is creased in the center. This small step will allow you to create a handy funnel to dump the extra back into the jar!

Halloween Mantel Candice Meyer 4

Edge the sides of your pieces with a gold Krylon pen. This process adds polish and sparkle to your elements!

Halloween Mantel Candice Meyer 5

Add unexpected elements! These potion jars from the digital collection are simply adorable! I couldn’t resist tying a small ribbon around the neck and placing a white flower punch in the center. A purple rhinestone completed the look!

One other idea in this category: cut your photos out in fun shapes! Several of my photos, for example, feature scalloped edges. I even added a purple washi tape border to the bottom of one!

Halloween Mantel Candice Meyer 6

Incorporate punches! On this purple 4×6 journaling card, I added a punched bat with sparkly eyes. I only applied glue to the center of his body so the wings would easily pop up for added dimension. To make this card extra spooky, I also outlined several of the branches with black glitter.

Halloween Mantel Candice Meyer 7

I attached several larger pieces with decorative clothespins and tacked the rest of the pieces with glue dots. The final result = a personalized, one-of-a-kind decoration that is sure to brighten any space!

Here are a few detail images of the final banner:

To complement this large banner, I created a mini version to hang across my mantel’s central photo frame. Adding this element also solved a design issue for me. The blue tones of my photo didn’t exactly match the rest of my vignette! This photo was one of my absolute favorites from my daughter’s first Halloween- making it a “must display item!” Adding a pop of orange across the corner helped integrate this piece into the larger whole. The orange argyle patterned paper from the Hocus Pocus collection [http://www.snapclicksupply.com/hocus-pocus-full-collection /] worked perfectly to solve this dilemma! I printed a sheet of this digital paper and punched out 5 pennants. I added purple scalloped squares to the center and sticker letters that spelled out the word: BOO! I love how this simple addition helped to make everything feel cohesive!

Creating Bulk Halloween Tags for Charity

 

BulkCreating Main Photo Betsy Sammarco

A Crafty Charity group I belong to sold so many Hallowe’en tags last year that we decided to sell more tags using a different design again this year.

When creating a lot of items to sell and creating them together as a group, it pays to be organized.  Here are a couple of tips I’ve learned over the years for bulk creating with a group that I’d like to share.  This year’s tags came out adorable – and if you’d like to create the same, grab Lori’s kit, Happy Halloween HERE.

Happy Halloween digital elements kit by Lori Whitlock available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #halloween

I used only the quirky cat image in my silhouette for this tag (eyes slightly altered for cutting), but there are a many wonderful images to use in this kit.

Tips for Bulk Creating for Charity:

  1. Think profit. OK, money isn’t everything, but when you’re creating for charity, your bottom line can be important.  You want to make as much money as possible for your effort.  Keeping this in mind, I like to use as much free product as possible.  In this project, that included using tree branches, and corrugated cardboard from the grocery store.  They’re easy to find and free for the taking.

Bulk Creating1 Betsy Sammarco

  1. Use your stash. When designing these tags, I knew I had a lot of jewels and bling in my stash, and used them for the cats’ eyes and collars.  Thinking how to add your stash into the final design can be fun. Solicit other crafters’ stashes too!

Bulk Creating2 Betsy Sammarco

  1. Do anything that needs drying time ahead of time. In this project that meant whitewashing the cardboard with white acrylic paint before assembly day.

Bulk Creating3 Betsy Sammarco

  1. Run through a prototype first. I had multiple ideas for this tag that included a fence made out of branches and wire.  This became so labor intensive that I quickly changed my mind to use a single branch as a tree in the background instead.  I never would have realized how labor intensive my first idea was if I hadn’t made a prototype.

Bulk Creating4 Betsy Sammarco

My first prototype also showed me that the cats’ eyes would not show up well unless backed by white paper.  I’m so glad I figured this out before creating with the group.

Bulk Creating5 Betsy Sammarco

  1. Focus on a goal of making a particular number of tags and make sure you have enough supplies to complete your goal.
  1. Prepare each piece in the assembly so it’s ready to use. My cats were all cut out from my silhouette, sentiments printed and cut, and twine cut to size before the group got together.

Bulk Creating6 Betsy Sammarco

  1. Embrace imperfection. Actually, strive for it.  I like doing group projects that are whimsical, full of personality, and that actually look best when imperfect.  With lots of hands and personalities involved in the creating, it’s easier and more fun that way. In our project the background cardboard tags are supposed to resemble houses, and cutting and painting them imperfectly adds to the quirkiness of the finished product.  Projects like this are so much easier when they don’t have to be perfect.

Bulk Creating7 Betsy Sammarco

Group Creating Day:

Similar pieces were bagged together and laid out on a long table in order of assembly.  If each person chooses a part or two of the assembly and sticks with it for a time, the project will finish easier.

Here are a couple of photos from our crafty day.  Busy hands make happy hearts.  Our hearts were certainly happy creating for a good cause.
