Girlie Girlie Cards

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by.  This month we are working with  the Special Delivery collection which is full of baby related products that can be used in non-baby projects.  We are also working with embossing folders from Ecstacy Crafts.

Steph here today to show you how fun and versatile this collection is.  I used the reverse side of the Special Delivery cardstock as well as the  Sweet Girl stickers. 

I embossed white cardstock with the embossing folder and lightly inked it in pink.  The sentiment was die cut from it's backing, matted on white cardstock and then placed back on it's backing.   Ribbon was tied around the card and the girl image was cut from the large tag and tied with some twine to the ribbon.  Sprinkle a few Metallic Pink Dew Drops around and a sweet card comes together quickly.

My next card uses Pink Roses on Cardstock as well as lots of  Pink Dew Drops around the floral images that were embossed on white cardstock..

After embossing the cardstock and inking with pink, I used the debossed side and added dew drops around the flowers.  I added Metallic Pink Dew Drops in the flower centers.

That's a lot of Dew Drops, but they stayed perfectly in place with the Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Lorrie Jonas with Robins Nest
How to make an image transfer with scrap book paper

Image Transfer 

For This month's project I wanted to share a technique using scrapbook paper . Many times I find paper I really love so many beautiful images. I  love adding images as textures into my journal pages. My times it's easier for me to do an image transfer rather than trying to duplicate the image by drawing it myself. We would love to see what you come up with using this technique.

Thank you for following us here at Robins Nest,

Baby Blue

Baby Blue Bassinet
Spring is a time for new arrivals and if you're like me, you're most likely shopping for a baby gift and doing it in the last minute.
Well look no further, this little gift is BIG on charm and easy to make. You can fill it with a gift card or use it as decoration for your next baby shower.
I started out by making the "box". I showed you how to make a simple box in my last post HERE
And now I'm going to show you how easy it is to put together this little bassinette.

Don't be afraid to give this a try. I really didn't have a pattern to work from. Although, I'm sure there are die cut methods available to make something similar. You really don't need more than one piece of 12X12 paper, some ribbon, felt, two brads, cardboard, a little cardstock and DEW DROPS.
Go ahead and personalize this when you know who you're giving it to, but make some ahead of time and you'll be all ready for your next arrival. The Special Delivery collection at The Robins Nest will offer you some cute options for putting this together for either a boy or a girl. Find the entire collection HERE and remember that you will receive 20% off of this collection for the entire month of April. That is a sweet deal on these amazing papers and embellishments.
Thanks for watching and don't forget you can find this video and ALL of The Robins Nest video's on our YOUTUBE channel found HERE

Garden Bulb Box

Hello Robin's Nest Fans!

I have been waiting to show you how we made this fun Bulb Box, and today seems like as good of day as any.  My daughter Chelsea and I brainstormed for a few days, and this is our project.
I had a wine box that I have been saving because it looks so vintage.  I just couldn't figure our what I wanted to create with it...
The Garden Blog Hop perfect!
And by the way, if you didn't stop by the blogs, you should.  There are some awesome ideas!

I put together these pictures of how we created the box.  If we come off as random and sometimes backwards, well, that's just how we are :).

We started by using The Robin's Nest colored chipboard, and covered the top of the box.  We then drew our leaves on the backside of the chipboard, and fuzzy cut them out.  Chelsea bent the chipboard so that we could have more dimension.  We then adhered the dew drops to the leaves and petals.
For more visual art, we wrapped green wire around a toothpick and glues two tear drops to the end. (I stole this idea from Terri Sproul, thanks Terri!)

After dew dropping the petals and leaves with Dew Dew Glue, we started gluing everything together.  We twisted more chipboard and created ivy/grass; and used a black Sharpie to add spots on the lady bugs.  We also Sharpied the butterfly antenna's.

I added Robin's Nest Straw, which is a glittery wirey ribbon beneath the flowers and leaves for more texture.
Here are more pictures of the details.

I hope this inspires you to created something for your garden bulbs.  The wine box works perfect because of the stuff inside.  Some bulbs are fragile (I have found this out the hard way).

Have a fabulous day!
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Welcome Back!

It sure is nice to have you visit us again at The Robin's Nest. It's Ro, here, with another project to share with you featuring our special this month: Special Delivery! Check out the link on the side bar to see all the wonderful items in this collection that will be 20% off all month!

I've put together a couple of A2 size cards...one a birthday, and one that could be used for a few different occasions. Here is the first one:

To start with, I cut some of the pink roses cardstock, inked the edges, and adhered it to the card base. I cut a strip of the Pink Roses Vellum and stamped a birthday sentiment on it. I adhered that to the card and added two strips of pom-pom ribbon.

Using dimensional foam adhesive, I assembled one of the flowers from Honkydory. We are cross-promoting with EC Crafts this month, and these adorable embellishments (and many other goodies) can be purchased there. Just click on the link below.

I cut the flower in half and mounted it on the corner of the card creating a beautiful focal point.

I really love how this card came together. For the inside, I added some more of the pink roses cardstock and inked a little in the center to highlight the stamped sentiment.

For the second card, I used the same paper mounted on a pink panel, and added a sweet sticker embellished with a bunch of Dew Drops.

This card can be used for a birthday, a birth announcement, or even a just because card. The Dew Drops give it a sparkly finish.

I hope you like the cards I shared with you today. All of the items used in my projects are linked below for your convenience.

Thanks for letting me share in your blog world!

Fishing in the Ocean Deep

Cortney loves to go fishing
when he goes to Cabo San Lucas.

Cortney is Rachel's other half.

Dana loves to come along even though
the ocean makes him very sea sick.
He takes lots of dramamine before he gets on the ship.

Out on in the ocean,
as the ship rocks and rocks,
there really are fish in all of that water below,
though Dana sometimes wonders if it is worth it.
The first year Cortney went on a fishing trip here
he caught a marlin.
It is now mounted on the wall in their home.
This time Jes and Cortney caught tuna.
It really was a fun day for them
out on the ocean.

Robin's Nest Products:
Tropical Voyage Paper
Fishing Sticker
Teal tear drops

And the morning sun rising as they went out to sea.

On a lighter note,
we rented little scooters to get around town.
I'm not a good scooter driver,
in fact while we were there it was the second time
I had even driven a scooter.
So here is my tire mark on the cement wall
where I crashed!

Ha Ha, we all do something dumb,
this is one of mine.

Until next week!

Blue for You Card

Hey, there!  This is Robin Redd (a.k.a. as RockinReddRobin) here today, 
to share a card I made, with you.
This month, The Robin’s Nest is teaming up with EcstasyCrafts.
I used Hunkdory Festive Pretty Pendants Sapphire Blue flower die-cut sheet for the flower in the center of my card.  You can find this and many other beautiful die-cut sheets at Ecstasy Crafts.
Also, from Ecstasy Crafts, I used the pretty EmbossingFolder - Flowers & Leaves.  One of the great things about the Belgian Chocolate Glitter Cardstock I used, is that it has a white core.  So, after I emboss, I rub it a bit with sand paper and the image pops through!  Isn’t this a beautiful look?!
The center swirly mat is cut from the Silhouette, and it shows the opposite side of the Belgian Chocolate Glitter Cardstock.
I hope this inspires you to make something today.
Until next time…
