Mother's Day Waterfall Album and Card Combo

Saturday, April 23, 2016
Hello CutCardStock fans! I'm back today with this waterfall card and album combo project for Mother's Day! This is my first project using waterfall design and I can tell you this is really amazing. I love the idea and by combining it with the brown bag kraft envelopes, it can now store pictures, notes and other memorable things. Check below for tutorial to create this fun and cool looking album.


Step 1: Cut the inner shape as shown in picture above, 5 1/8" x 5 1/4", make sure do not cut the right side of the card stock.

Step 2: Remove the shape marked with red lines, the space between the inner shape and red lines should be 3/4" wide.

Step 3: Prepare 5 Envelopes. Re-size four of the envelopes by removing 1/2" in increment for each of them. For example, remove first envelope at 1/2", second at 1", then 1 1/2" and finally 2". Remove excess to form smaller envelopes. The second picture above shows the result from this step.

Step 4: Turn the blue card stock over and score the inner square at 1/2" intervals, start from the right. There should be a total of five 1/2" scored and folded areas. Prepare a brown card stock that is 5 1/4" x 7" in size, score and fold at 1/2" on the left and adhere on the first 1/2" of the blue card stock. See picture above.

Step 5: Turn blue card stock over and start gluing the Kraft envelopes to the blue card stock. First, glue the regular size envelope on the first 1/2" of the inner square then followed by second smaller so on and so forth until the smallest envelope is adhered to the last scored 1/2" of the blue card stock.

Step 6: Decorate the envelopes with patterned card stocks and embellishments. Cut a larger heavy card stock to use as the base and glue the bottom of the waterfall album (make sure to not glue the right side of the album).

Here is what you will get...

Have you heard of Conyac?

Wednesday, April 20, 2016
Hi all! This is not craft related but I just want to share something with you!

After several years being a stay at home mother and unemployed, I recently received my first paycheck after so long. I was introduced to Conyac by my sister, who lived in Japan. At first I was kind of skeptical about the site as I had never been able to find an online source that I can make money and work from home at the same time. I’m glad my sister insisted me to join and find out about this site.

Conyac is a genuine online translation service based in Japan and it is comprised of translators from all around the world. Regardless if you are looking for a translator or wish to translate for others, you can do that at Conyac. They are a very friendly community that allows you to provide paid translation work and exchange knowledge with each other for self-improvement. You can choose to translate in many different languages such as English to Japanese or Chinese to English. Sometimes it even offers translation in the same language, English to English for instance. I have expanded my vocabulary a lot ever since I joined the site and worked on the translation tasks. If you are keen, you can even pick up a new language on this site. They are so many sources that you can obtain to help you with it.

So, how does it work? First you have to create an account with Conyac, remember to fill in all the basics such as personal information and the languages that you speak.  Before you can work on a job you will need to apply for one. You will then be asked to submit an entry test for language proficiency verification and this process is particular to the job you are applying for (for different job you need to submit a separate test). As soon as you are accepted you can start working on the available tasks. Basically you will be compensated by each project or task you completed and submit the translation work before the due date. For the project I was working on it was compensated per task completed and some others can be based on project completed. You can work at your most convenient time as long as you turn in the project before the due date. You will be asked to provide the estimate time you will need to finish the project during application but this does not mean you must submit right after the estimation time is over. However, it is MANDATORY that you submit before the project's due date or you will be disqualified for payment. 

If you are bilingual or multilingual speaker and have a passion for translating (and of course, make money!), this is a great place to get started. You will never know until you give it a try. Check out their website for more information:

Love Mom Card Using Cabbage Rose Die

Thursday, April 7, 2016
Love this cabbage rose die from Crafter's Companion, it doesn't just cut but also allow you to use as a stencil. I have been playing with this die for the last couple of days and I found out several ways to use this die. 

First I would like to share this card with you. I know mother's day is still a month away but I promise there will be more mother's day cards to come after this one! This is the basic technique to use the die. The die cuts only the outside of the rose however, if you use thicker card stock it will also emboss the pattern of the rose. The embossed patterns will then be stenciled (right on the die itself). Simply grab a dauber and ink it up right on the die. 

- Do not remove die from the paper after cutting for stenciling.
- Make sure to pre-cut on a scrap paper using the same die, save the negative to use as masking especially when you want to do the same way I did (create background pattern on the card base).


Let me know if you have any doubts in creating this card, I will get back to you as soon as I can. I'm going to send this card to my mom, I'm sure she'll like it. :) I hope you have a wonderful day!

Kraft Envelope Organizer

Tuesday, April 5, 2016
I'm back today with an organizer project using only Kraft Envelopes from CutCardStock! I made this to keep all my frequently-use embellishments and stationery. You can't imagine how well can four envelopes hold all the items in the picture below!

Please see the step-by-step tutorial below to find out how to create this amazing organizer! 

View from atop...

Step 1: Prepare four Kraft envelopes (5.25 x 7.25" in size). Take an envelope and score it at 3 5/8" or simply fold the envelope in half. Do the same to other three envelopes. 

Step 2: Fold outward the pocket of the envelope such as shown in picture below.

Step 3: Cut the flap of the envelope in half (refer to the scored line) then fold according to the picture below. About 1/2" wide for the flaps on all sides of the main envelope flap.

Step 4: Glue together the flaps by taking another envelope that created the same way in Step 3 and glue the sides of the flaps together to form pockets. Repeat this step with the rest of the envelopes.

Step 5: This step is optional. Decorate the inside and outside of the holder with patterned papers.

The result should be looking like this...

Here are some pictures taken from different angles...

Tips: Use thick card stock to replace the patterned card stock on the inside of the envelope if heavier items to be stored in the holders.

I hope you like this simple and easy organizer, it will help keep your desk cluster free! Thanks for checking out my post, I will be back soon with another project idea!
