OMG Little Leafy Friend on a card is just too cute


Hi.. Bev here today. So for this card today at the Robin's Nest I am using  a fabulous fun friend accent. Mix and match it to their amazing paper choices and I have a super cute card. 

Supply List:
Robin's Nest Products
Other: tutti die cut, Creative Embellishment chipboard butterfly, cardstock


To make this card I pulled the papers that best suited the colouring of the super cute Little Leaf Friend accent which is the main focus of my card. Isn't it just too cute. There are others you would love for some of your projects too.. so be sure to check them out in the store.

Next I added the stripes to the card. making sure the black line still showed.


Trim it with some chipboard accent and the small word sentiments die cuts and it's done. 
This may be a simple and easy card but it's amazing combo makes it perfect.


Thanks for joining me today... and hope you have a great day too.

How to create a simple pocket book gift card

Good morning Terri here, today I am going to show you how to create a simple pocket book gift card.



Sometimes we want to give a loved one something other than a greeting card, maybe we want to give them a ticket to a show or a gift card, maybe you are giving them some photos and need a way to wrap them, hopefully this tutorial will give you a new idea.

I will be using the following products from Robins Nest




I cut a piece of 6"x 12" card and scored it in half to create my outer card


Using my chosen paper for the insert I folded it in half and in half again, I then unfold and cut one of the folds to the centre.


Then fold the paper to form triangles so it looks like the picture above


I added sticky tape along the outer edge (show here in red) and then closed the triangular flap


Now we have an insert with 2 pockets, I glued this inside the outer card which I cut and folded previously


On the front of the card I added a paper doily and some embellishments from my Robins Nest stash



I also added some paper lace tape to the spine of the card


Inside can be filled with items of your choice


I hope you like this idea and give it a try yourself.

Thank you for stopping by today.



One Fine Day Layout, and How to Tint Paper Flowers

Good morning crew, Penny here with my "One Fine Day" layout, and to show you how to tint paper flowers. This is my is my finished layout with my hand tinted flowers. 

So I started with some beautiful supplies from Robin's Nest Scrapbook Supplies.  I have listed them for you with links to each one so they are easy for you to find.

Brown-Glitter-Cardstock - This is lovely to look at but this photo doesn't show all the lovely glitter on it.


Forest-Trees-Specialty-Paper Side A - This is a hammered paper, with beautiful texture.


Side B -  I used side B on my project. which is a lovely gold color.

Doillie-Die-Cuts - I used two different colors of these lovely doilies on my project.  They are adorable.

Saffron-Flower-Die-Cuts - These are the flower die cuts that I hand tinted.





Rosy-Cards - These great cards were used in two ways, one for my title, and the other one as a page accent.


This was the accent piece.


Flame-Dew-Drops - This link takes you to the color I used, but this photos shows you the many colors and styles that are available.



Embellie Gellie - This is the perfect way to place any type of tiny item on a page, or anywhere for that matter. They are a perfect fit with the Robin's Nest Dew Drops. 



ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever - This glue is amazing to work with, and it glues so many different product types, like metal, plastic, fabric, paper, etc.


So to hand tint my flowers, I used a watercolor marker where ever I wanted my flowers to be darker. Then I took a wet Q-tip , (you could also use a tiny paint brush with water on it) and went around the area's I had just colored with a marker. It works best if you do one petal at a time so the marker doesn't have time to dry.


I did several flowers in this manner. 



Here is one placed on my layout, with another small flower on top of it with a pop dot, and a Dew Drop center. 


 Another sample on the layout.



Final sample.

Here is my finished layout with all the flowers in place. 


I hope I have inspired you to have fun altering your die cuts. Till nest time Happy Scrapping. Love Penny

A Terrific Photo with Two Strong Women

 Colleen here with a terrific photo of two strong women in my life.  Okay so the one isn't quite a woman yet but she is so much like her great-grandmother that at times she acts like a woman.



 These are the papers that I used to create this layout and as you can see most of them are scraps that I had in my stash.  When you work with beautiful papers you don't want to throw any of it away.


I started the page by just adding layers on top of each other until I had them positioned the way I wanted and then used The Best Glue Ever to adhere them down.

I used the backside of the Silver Roses Glitter cardstock and cut out the fence with my Silhouette Cameo.

Next I cut out the flowers from the Silver Roses Glitter cardstock and added some Doillie Die Cuts up in the corner and then adhered the photo down.  I mounted the photo on some Hunter Green with Green Glitter Cardstock.

Here is a close up of the flowers that I cut out from Silver Roses Glitter cardstock.  Don't those flowers just add a great sparkle to the page.


Next I used my Silhouette Cameo and some scraps of paper to cut out the Fox.  The title is cut out using my sizzix dies and scraps of paper from Silver Roses Glitter.  THe title was put on one of the stickers from the Outdoor Stickers set.  I mounted the sticker onto a piece of Hunter Green with Green Glitter Cardstock and then cut around it to make it stand out.


I thank you for looking and please don't forget to check out the store to see all the wonderful and fun products.

DIY Notebook with Glittered Zoo cardstock

Hi everyone!
It's Angela here today with you and this is my new project made with the beautiful glitter patterned paper by The Robin's Nest.


Tall Tale Mini Album by Angela Tombari for The Robin's Nest DT

It's a note book, or a travel note book, or maybe a mini album... I think it's a bit of that.

I'm a stationery addicted and sometimes I love to make my own note book.
This time I was inspired by a glittered Leopard cardstock from the zoo collection.

Fist, I decided to give vitamine to my notebook, because it will host a few spring story. So, I colored it with my Oxide.

To cover the mess of the paint on the inside cover, I adhered stripes of whasi tape. I chose a geometric optical pattern in  black and white .

The fist page of the mini is a welcome page where I wrote the date. A few colored dew drops give a happy welcome  to the reader.

Enjoy the Ride

Hi everyone! It is me, Tonya and I am excited to say that I'm back as a guest designer for the Robin's Nest! Today I want to share a simple card I created. 
I started with a folded 5 1/2"x5" piece of Smoky Chevron Cardstock as my card base. I cut two Woodland Wreath Diecuts from Brown Glitter Cardstock and a 3 1/3"x4" piece of  Vellum and adhered to the base of the card.


I cut a banners from the Rosy Stripe Cardstock and the Valentine Hearts Cardstock and added to the card.


Next I shaped Azure Flowers Die Cuts along with some flowers and leaves that I punched and cut from the following cardstocks: Vanilla Fleur GlitterMoss Green Glitter and Wrap Glitter. To finish the flowers I added buttons to the center along with Fresh Mowed Grass and Light Ale Dew Drops.


I looped some of the silver cording from the Rosy Straw Pack and adhered to the upper corner of the wreath and I finished the card off with a bicycle from the Azure Bike Die Cuts.


There you have it! Easy peasy card! Be sure to check out the Robin's Nest website to see what new products they have in their shop and stop by the Chattering Robin's blog for inspiration!
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!
