Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Lunchbox Lovenotes


Cards don't have to be just for special occasions.  Why not make someone special smile with a little extra addition to their lunchbox?  A simple handmade card with a fun message is sure to help brighten their day! 













Materials:

KellyCraft™ - Jimbo Lojik™ stamps - Set A 
            - Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square
            - Multi-Mat™
Green, black card stock
Patterned paper 
Westcott® TrimAir Premium Titanium Paper Trimmer, Titanium Non-Stick Scissors 
Beacon® Tacky Glue 
Clearsnap® Color Box™ Archival Dye ink pad - Midnight
Blumenthal Lansing turquoise heart button 
Toner® CraftLace™ - Aqua, black 

Instructions:


This card is super simple to make - just a few supplies are needed. The KellyCraft™ Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square makes it easier than ever to quickly align all the elements on your projects, and the Jimbo Lojik™ stamps give you a great assortment of eclectic verses to bring a smile to someone’s face.   CraftLace™ is a great unexpected product to use for embellishing cards of any type. 

Cut green card stock to 4” x 8”.  Fold in half to make card. 

Cut black card stock to 3 3/4” x 3 3/4”.  Cut patterned paper to 3 1/2” x 3 1/2”.   Mount patterned paper to black mat with Tacky Glue.  

Ink “You’re the type of boy I’d make a sandwich for” stamp, use Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to stamp straight onto green card stock.  Trim around verse.  Cut black mat to fit beneath verse. 

Cut 2 pieces of aqua and one piece of black CraftLace™ about 6” long.  String heart button onto black lace.  With button centered, tie 3 pieces of CraftLace™ together with a knot on each end, so you end up with an embellishment about 4” long for the side of the card.  

Align all the elements of the card with the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square and mount to card front.  


Glue button and CraftLace™ embellishment to left side of card front as shown.
