Cherish Your Pets

Memories. It’s what scrapbooking is all about, right? I tend to scrap the current ones, but for this layout today I decided to scrap something from my past. The Corgi that started the Corgi craze in my home, Fannie.

I will admit, I shed a tear or two before I did this page and while I was journaling. But I love the page and it truly defines her memory. I used paper from the Midday Medley collection, stickers from the Sticker Flair kit and chipboard from the Graceful Season’s collection.

Cherish Scrapbook Page by Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design Midday Medley

I started with a white cardstock base, because I loved the flowered vellum paper in the Midday Medley pack. (Trust me, I am loving the vellum!). Attaching vellum can be tricky, because unless you use a specific adhesive made for vellum, chances are it will show thru. There are ways around this, though if you do not have vellum adhesive! I covered the top area where the vellum is attached with a punched border strip. Easy! You can see the punched strip under my journaling.

Gift Set | Magnets & Trivets

Hi everyone! It’s Robbie again today. Last week, on the 3 Birds Blog, I shared a card that I made using the new Pearlescent and Foil Goodie Box. On my blog, I shared a matching gift bag and tag. Today, I’m back to share the little gifties that I put together to go in the bag!

Gift Set with Coordinating Magnets and Trivets by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design Pearlescent Foil Goodie Box Graceful SeasonI love to give little kitchen gifts because everyone can use them. With the versatility of the 3 Birds collections, you are sure to be able to find a color combination that will work with any kitchen, too. For this gift, I made a couple of trivets and matching magnet set. I also added a whisk and a wooden spoon for a little extra.

DESIGNER TIP | It would be really cute to add some cup towels or wash rags. The ideas for the kitchen are endless!

Gift Set with Coordinating Magnets and Trivets by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design Graceful SeasonThe trivets are 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 tiles that I picked up at Home Depot to alter. These are perfect because you can use the 6 x 6 pads with it. These are SO SIMPLE!

Directions: Use Mod Podge to adhere your paper to the tile. After it’s dried, add another coat of Mod Podge to the top. After that is completely dry, seal with a spray sealer and add cork pieces to the bottom corners.

Gift Set with Coordinating Magnets and Trivets by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design Graceful SeasonThe last thing I made was a set of 4 magnets to match. They work great as a little tie-on for gifts and are really practical, too.

Gift Set with Coordinating Magnets and Trivets by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design Graceful SeasonDirections: Glue flat-back glass pieces to small scraps of paper with Glossy Accents. If you don’t have Glossy Accents, any strong glue that dries clear will work. After it is completely dry, trim around the glass piece as closely as possible. Glue a magnet to the back, also using a strong clear drying glue. I used Glossy Accents for this, as well.

Now, pop the magnets in a little organza bag, tie a great bow to attach the magnets to and put the whole thing in your matching bag. Quick and Easy gift! When you sit down to make them, think about making a couple of sets. Then you’ll have another gift for when you are in a pinch!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my project!

Goodie Box Photo Wreath

Need a fun idea for decorating your teen’s room? How about making a photo wreath! It’s Katrina and I have a tutorial to share on how quickly and simply make your own photo wreath that can be used over and over!

Photo Wreath Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design Fun, right?! This idea came from a dear college freshman, who made one for her dorm room from fabric. She had found it on Pinterest. I did my own take on what I had seen of hers. I got a wooden wreath from a craft store to use as my base. I covered the base with Liquid Fabric Fuse Adhesive from Therm O Web, using a foam brush.

Photo Wreath Tutorial by Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design I then laid my base down on the back of a piece of pattern paper from the Midday Medley collection. Trim around the edges with a craft knife.

Photo Wreath Tutorial by Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design An easy way to trim out the middle is to cut an X in it and then trim out each section. If I try to trim out the entire piece, I have a tendency to make a mess!

Photo Wreath Tutorial by Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design My wreath was slightly larger than my sheet of paper (mainly because I didn’t think about it when I bought it!), so I added some extra pieces of paper to make it work out where all the edges were covered.

Photo Wreath Tutorial by Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design

Then I started placing clothespins around the circle to figure out how many I wanted to use.

Photo Wreath Tutorial by Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design Once I had a good idea, then the fun begins with decorating them. Zots Bling from Therm O Web work perfectly to attach those fun Pearlescent & Foil Goodies! They are small enough to fit on the back of the gem, so that you cannot see them.

Photo Wreath Tutorial by Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design Some of the clips I left and just added the gems to, others I cut strips of paper to decorate them and added things here or there.

Photo Wreath Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design I used goodies from the 3D Embellishments sets and from the Sticker Flair kit. So fun to mix and match with the collections.

Photo Wreath Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design Photo Wreath Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design

I alternated which way the clips were facing around the wreath. This way you can have pictures on the inside and outside of the wreath.

Photo Wreath Katrina Hunt for 3 Birds Design This would be a GREAT first altered project, if you haven’t done altered before. Or a fun thing for a sleepover and everyone could take home a wreath!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Pearlescent & Foil Goodie Box Inspiration – Quilled Card

Hi everyone! Robbie here to talk about how much I love the Pearlescent and Foil Goodie Box that 3 Birds is releasing on HSN soon! This little box contains so many little flat backed pieces that are perfect for adding that extra touch of fabulous to your projects.

For today, I wanted to show you a little card that I made using quilled flowers combined with the Pearlescent and Foil pieces. After you take a look here, be sure to stop by my blog where I’m sharing a matching Gift Bag and Tag.

Thanks So Much Card by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design featuring the Pearlescent and Foil Goodie BoxAs you know by now, the quilled roses that you can make with the card kit are my favorites!! When I got this goodie box, I knew that I wanted to put some centers in my flowers, so that is what I did here with the card

Thanks So Much Card by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design featuring the Pearlescent and Foil Goodie BoxI’m including a super close photo so you can see what it looks like. I just used tiny glue dots to adhere them right to the top. I also added them to the leaves the same way. No need to push down on them, the sit perfectly right on the top of the center.

Thanks So Much Card by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design featuring the Pearlescent and Foil Goodie BoxOne more close up to show the dimension of my card. A strip of paper with a border of punched paper added to the card completed the base. I used a Fiskars Scalloped Border punch for the borders.

I used foam dots to raise the doily from the background. I like the way this made it sit nicely against the bow.

Once I got started, I couldn’t stop playing with this combination of products. Drop by next week to see what I put in the bag!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my project! Don’t forget to visit my blog to check out my coordinating Gift Bag and Tag.

3 Birds Goodie Box Goodness

HI Birdie Friends, Chasity here with a question…Who remembers the very first 3Birds “Goodie Box”!?! Huh? That yummy Embellishment Kit debuted on HSN more than 7 years ago! The acrylic, divided “Goodie Box” was filled to the brim with coordinating buttons, glitter chipboard, ribbon, brads & more! (I might just have to go into the birdie archives, and dig one out to share!) It flew out of HSN! The “Goodie Box” has come in many versions since the first and evolved with the trends, making appearances year after year… and has ALWAYS been one of my favorite kits!  The latest version, The Foil & Pearlescent “Goodie Box”, coordinates with the “Graceful Seasons Collection”, along with the “Midday Medley Collection” perfectly & is a huge value at over 1,400 pieces! Not only will it become a staple in your arsenal of supplies, it will be around for a long time too!

Here are a few projects I made for on air, using the latest “Goodie Box”. First up is a Card using the Graceful Seasons Paper Pack, along with the “For All Seasons” Themed Cards Kit coming in September on HSN! I also used 2 floral 3D Embellishments from the Graceful Seasons Collection. Oh, and some of that fabulous Glitter Paper from the Midday Medley Paper Pack

I Adore You Card By Chasity Sivanick for #3birdsdesign #gracefulseasonscollection #forallseasonstitlecards #foilandpearlescentgoodieboxI really liked keeping my design simple, and adding just a few of the Foil & Pearlescent 1/2 spheres for a sophisticated look. All you need is your favorite clear, wet adhesive, or favorite mini glue dot. apply to the back of the 1/2 sphere and place in desired space! To add even more variety, each color comes in 2 sizes!

I_ADORE_YOU_BY_CHASITY_SIVANICK_FOR_3_BIRDS_DESIGN_5

I also created a simple layout using the “Goodie Box”. Again, I used paper from the Graceful Seasons Paper Pack, the border sticker is from the Sticker Flair Mega Sticker Kit, the 3D Embellishments are from the Graceful Seasons 3D Embellishment Kit, the title card is from the “For All Seasons” Themed Card Kit Coming soon to HSN.

See how adding just a few of the “pearls” gives the layout sophistication, without  the bulk? I also love that no matter which collection I reach for, this Embellishment Kit is going to match! I can design with confidence knowing that all my products coordinate saving me tons of time!

I hope you enjoyed my projects today! Be sure to tune into HSN in September for some more inspiration and projects created with this awesome Embellishment Kit! I promise, you will fall in love with the Foil & Pearlescent “Goodie Box”! Be sure to share with us too, if you’ve purchased past “Goodie Boxes”, it would be fun to see!

Pearlescent & Foil Goodie Box Inspiration – Scrapbook Page

We have something new and exciting coming soon to 3 Birds Studio and I already know you are going to love it! It’s called the “Pearlescent & Foil Goodie Box”, and the best part, it has over 1400 pieces!!

Pearlescent & Foil Goodie Box by 3 Birds Design

That’s right, over 1400 pieces of color and shine to add to your paper crafting projects! All this week the design team will be sharing projects using the Pearlescent & Foil Goodie Box, so be sure you stop by for inspiration and ideas.

And now on to my project! I love old black and white photos, and this picture of my dad when he was about 7 years old is no exception. I wanted to add some color and shine to my layout, but still wanted the focus to be on the photo.

You and Me Scrapbook Page by Mary Ann Jenkins for 3 Birds Design featuring Pearlescent and Foil Goodie BoxAfter layering pieces from the Midday Medley Paper Pad and the Nestable Festival Sticker Pad, I did a bit of machine stitching in a messy circle, right on top of the copper chevron stickers. Next I added my photo, and then various colors of the Pearlescent & Foil gems.

You and Me Scrapbook Page by Mary Ann Jenkins for 3 Birds Design featuring Pearlescent and Foil Goodie BoxDESIGNER TIP | I used both a liquid adhesive, and glue dots to add the Pearlescent & Foil gems to my layout to see which worked best. I liked them both, so give different adhesives a try to see what works best for you.

You and Me Scrapbook Page by Mary Ann Jenkins for 3 Birds Design featuring Pearlescent and Foil Goodie BoxI finished off the layout by adding the You and Me sticker and my journaling that was done on a computer and cut into small strips

Creative Cards

Hi friends! Do you like making cards, or are you like me and have a hard time creating if your project isn’t 12×12? It’s Mary Ann here today, and I actually do like making cards, but sometimes I hit that creative block if it’s not a 12×12 scrapbook layout. So how about a few cards that still use creativity, but are super simple and easy to put together!

First up is this “hello” card that I created. I started with my cardstock base, then added the floral background card from the new 3 Birds Studio Themed Cards Set which is coming to HSN in September.

Hello Card by Mary Ann Jenkins for 3 Birds DesignNext, I fussy cut the flower cluster from a coordinating paper, and added it with foam tape. I used alphabet stickers from the new Sticker Flair kit, and sprinkled a bit of glitter from my stash. To finish off the card, I adhered a few gems from the soon to be released Pearlescent & Foil Goodie Box Set. The gems really set it off and add a touch of color and shine!

For my second card, I went with another simple design by using a block pattern made of 1” squares I cut from coordinating papers.

Thank You Card by Mary Ann Jenkins for 3 Birds DesignAfter I had all my squares cut, I added them to my card base. Next I layered the two journaling spots from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil Set, and topped them off with the vase of flowers piece from the 3D Embellishment Kit.

Thank You Card by Mary Ann Jenkins for 3 Birds Design

So there you have it, two very simple but creative cards! Thanks so much for stopping by the 3 Birds Studio blog today. We love to inspire!

Back To School Personalized Binder

Many of you may have kids who will be heading back to school soon, so why not let them head back to school in style with their own personalized back to school binder? It’s Juliana here to share with you how I took a simple 3-ring-binder with a clear pocket cover and decorated it for my niece using some of the fabulous speciality papers from 3 Birds Studio.

Back To School Personalized Binder by Juliana Michaels featuring 3 Birds Designs I began by measuring the size of the front cover on the binder. I then cut a piece of vellum from the Midday Medley Paper Collection to fit inside the pocket. This certainly dressed it up a bit, but I wanted to take it a step further, so I pulled out the All Seasons Themed cards (coming soon to HSN) and looked through them until I found a quote that seemed to fit. I mounted the card onto a piece of white cardstock and then onto a piece of the silver glitter paper from the Graceful Season Paper Collection. This definitely stepped it up, but I felt like it needed a little more pizzaz, so I used a piece of the blue foil paper from the Midday Medley Paper collection and added a bunch of punched butterflies to the cover. Now I was happy with how it looked – lots of sparkle and shine!

Back To School Personalized Binder by Juliana Michaels featuring 3 Birds Designs

Back To School Personalized Binder by Juliana Michaels featuring 3 Birds Designs As you can see, I also decorated the spine of the binder. I used some of the leftover vellum that I used on the front cover. I measured and trimmed the vellum to fit inside the pocket along the spine. I then added my niece’s name and a couple more butterflies. Now she is all ready to head back to school in style with her own personalized binder.

Now, it’ your turn to pull out your scrapbooking supplies and start personalizing your kids school binders, or maybe even one for yourself!

August Scrapbook Sketch Take 5 | Robbie Herring

Hi everyone! Robbie here today to share my take on the August Scrapbook Sketch! It is such a fun sketch and you can see from the previous posts that each of us had a different vision of it to make it come to life. As I’ve said in the past, 3 Birds collections are so versatile! Using the same sketch and the same products to come up with such different pages shows just how versatile the collections are!

Sweetest Moment Scrapbook Page by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design featuring August Scrapbook SketchTo start, I built my background. I used Chasity’s fabulous tip using the Xyron Create to adhere the vellum to my page.

Instead of using several triangles to build my corners, I chose to use several strips to mimic the look of the sketch. I combined ribbon, stitching and even quilling strips to complete the look. The quilling strips are perfect to add directly to the page and the scalloped ones add such a cute touch!

Sweetest Moment Scrapbook Page by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design featuring August Scrapbook SketchNext up, I layered some pieces from the Summer Themed Card Set for some layering around the photo. Instead of using the card ‘as is’, I fussy cut around the cute scallops.

Sweetest Moment Scrapbook Page by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design featuring August Scrapbook Sketch

Of course, this is my page, so I added some little felt flowers, a few doilies and some extra stitching to embellish it! The 3D embellishment piece fit perfectly for a little extra touch!

Sweetest Moment Scrapbook Page by Robbie Herring for 3 Birds Design featuring August Scrapbook SketchDon’t forget that you can play along with us using the August Scrapbook Sketch.  All you have to do is create a project and share it with us on our Facebook page. We will select one person to feature on our 3 Birds Blog and Facebook page in September. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my project!

August Scrapbook Sketch Take 4 | Katrina Hunt

Hello 3 Birds Fans! I hope you are enjoying the sketch inspiration that has been on the blog in the past week. Have you had a chance to play along with it yet? It’s Katrina on the blog here, to share my take on the sketch today.

There are page sketches, card sketches and tag sketches, right? But have you used a sketch for something other than was it was made specifically for? That is exactly what I did with the August Scrapbook Sketch. I created a card based on the page sketch!

Just A Note Card by Katrina Hunt featuring 3 Birds Design August Scrapbook SketchI dug into my Graceful Season goodies and got busy. I stuck with the sketch pretty closely, because I wanted to demonstrate how you can use it on a smaller scale for a different project. I used some of the fun Midday Medley glitter paper and then an arrow sticker from the Sticker Flair set.

Just A Note Card by Katrina Hunt featuring 3 Birds Design August Scrapbook SketchI did mix up my corner a bit with a die cut from the Graceful Season Quilled Card Making Kit and a fun little bauble from the Pearlescent & Foil Goodies set!

Just A Note Card by Katrina Hunt featuring 3 Birds Design August Scrapbook Sketch

As you can see it was super easy to change this sketch over to a card. Play around and show us YOUR creations with this sketch. You might be featured here on the blog and our 3 Birds Design Facebook page!
