CraftsUPrint Treasure Chest Bonus packs project, Vault and Friday Freebie

Some of you may have seen me post previously about the Treasure Chest items I got free with one of my  cut file orders. CraftsUPrint are actually mailing these FREE when you order over £15 ( currently on offer at £10 ) worth of files or card kits.  I have to be honest I wasn’t expecting them to be that great quality, cmon..it’s free right  lol.  But when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the  sheets..AND the size.  I wasn’t expecting full A4 sheets either.. 15 of them.. and you get to choose the designs you want.

If you missed  my previous post, you can find details below

My Treasure Chest Freebies arrived…. impressed !




Well last night I finally had a moment to sit and play with them… and I made my son some fridge magnets for his word wall.. which incidentally is one side of my upright freezer lol. It’s situated near the dining room table so always in view of him when he is eating or playing.. mommy’s subtle way of keeping him learning no matter what he is doing.










He spends a lot of time playing with Playdoh or coloring etc at the table.. and of course it’s a great way for him to “earn ” snacks during the day.  If you missed previous posts about the Cohas Magnetic sheets (formerly known as ZiggyBoard) I use to make his  wall.. I added some of them to some cheap wood cut circles and some of them I just added the Magnetic strip straight to the back of them.
Now the link is to the commercial product, what I am actually using is what are referred to as “tails” and “seconds” so anyone who is interested in buying some of these for projects, let me know. These are perfect for making magnets, and letter walls and using as small magnetic chalkboards. I have allsorts of projects on the blog using this stuff and I love it (search magnet, or Ziggy on the blog). It cuts like a dream on my Cricut Explore, by hand, my paper cutter, My Sizzix Big Shot… so very versatile and lots of fun to be had. I also used it to hang my metal dies for easy grabbing.. LOVE this stuff.



Well CraftsUPrint also just added a new video about the treasure chest, so I figured I would add that in for anyone interested.  If you have kids who like to craft, or you want some fun card or project toppers.. check them out.  I grab a set every time I buy new cutfiles.. in fact, I’m off to get more when I finish up this post as I see some fun new cut files I need to grab.  These are great for  projects with my 4 year old too as the Treasure Chest also includes sticker sheets.

They have added in lots of new items too, check out the contents of the current Treasure Chest right now not only can you get access to the treasure chest with a £10 order, you also get access to the vault for 24 hours.. and that is filled with freebies too. Lots of great card kits.. and they are all yours.. you have 24 hours to grab them for free.

Right now.. these are part of the vault collection.. which includes card kits, toppers and digital papers

My Treasure Chest Freebies arrived…. impressed !

Last month I picked up some extra freebies when I got my latest batch of CraftsUPrint cut files. They have an offer that allows you to choose 15….yes FIFTEEN freebies from the Treasure Chest when you spend £15 or more. Well actually.. guess what?  I just saw they made it even better, it’s now available if you spend £10 or more.  I am  not sure how long that extra offer is available…. so check it  out.

Now to be fair; not only were they offering these freebies, but since it was a phsyical product.. they also offered FREE SHIPPING. Shipping is a huge roadblock for a lot of International buyers… so WOOT for Free Shipping.

Well they arrived this past week, but I confess… I hadn’t checked my mail for a few day..* cough a week lol.

I had two packs in the mail, from two separate orders….so 30 sheets in total. Now I will be honest, I wasn’t really expecting it to be anything great….  It’s a freebie …. right!   Well I was pleasantly surprised; not only were the sheets all full A4 sheets, the quality is not half bad.  I just grabbed them thinking my 4 year old might have fun with them… but I might have to snag a few of these for myself lol.

You get to choose the 15 sheets you want to, it’s not just a random pick they send you. There was a mix of  no cut Decoupage sheets and sticker sheets, so I grabbed a bit of both.
The designs are pretty cute, so if you make “cute” cards… you will like these.  

Cute critters; bears, badgers and hedgehogs and some of them come with various gold foiled sentiments too.  I picked up a few humorous  sheets too and kids decoupage designs..like elephants, dragons and knights..  then I grabbed some sticker sheets.  A really nice mix of designs to add to the stash for me and the lil guy.

For a bonus Freebie… I am suitably impressed and would definitely grab more if the  offer is still on when I grab more cut files.  You can check out the current Treasure Chest offerings here Treasure Chest

Fun Flip Card

This was a quick fun card to do.  I have had these Sizzix flip card dies for a while now and decided to drag them out and have some fun.

  • I printed the image and then die cut the flip card.
  • Then I dry inked the card base with a brush and some Craft Smart dye inks.
  • I chose a paper from the Recollections “All Seasons” pad as the front panel
  • I used black Recollections card stock for the circles
  • I grabbed some cute Recollection LadyBug brads I had in my stash from a clearance haul at Michaels.
  • I colored my Image with Chameleon pens, Zig Kurecolor, Zig Memory System and some Ranger Distress pens
  • The black discs below the ladybugs has Black Wink of Stella on it.

January 2016 final Bi weekly challenge #2 Sketch

As you may have read we are changing the bi-weekly sketch challenge to a monthly challenge like the others… so to round out the rest of January our host, NanaDonna provided us with 3 sketches to work from.  Here is my #2 sketch  it is a Tuesday Morning sketch...if you like this sketch, both Tuesday Morning and Crafting Circle Message Board are using it for current challenges..so come play 🙂

jan_2016_sketch2_wmd72

Card Base is from a Multicolored Recollections pack ( Michaels )

Image is “Besties Garden Fancy Pants Dreaming Scan13” By Sherri Baldy  .. check her out she has soooo many awesome cute images of these “Besties”

Image is printed on 110lb Card Stock and cut out with a circular Die. A smaller circular foam pad is attached behind that for height..and then the larger diameter circle is also a circular die cut foam pad in pink. Because these pads are adhesive…it makes it easier to glue them face to face and use the adhesive against the card stock, and stops that wet warp from the glues :)

The lacy strip is a Martha Stewart border punch on SEI Coconut white velvet and has a “Recollection green gingham” paper strip over the top

The image was colored a few weeks ago and has been in my practice sheet pile …..colored with a mix of Chameleon and Zig Memory System markers and the finished card was paired with a contrasting envelope from my collection of colors.
