Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March 2021 Challenge

Every month Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge is an open papercraft challenge that encourages you to use patterned paper. Because it is March, I thought I would make up a fun St. Paddy's Day Card. I selected the adorable 3D "Irish Terrier" and "Leprechaun"  added a back as to make it into a card. Nothing says Irish, like an Irish Terrier and a classic Leprechaun! 

My brother's first dog was a little red terrier that we called, "Terry"  (I know very original) or as my Dad said - Terry the Terrible Terrier. We lived in Vancouver where it rains almost daily, and Terry hated the rain. I remember Mom having to hold an umbrella over the dog to get her to go outside to do her business! 

Using my Cricut, I made 2 versions of each card using both solid coloured and pattern paper. I also added a back as to make it into a card. The SVG file is from Okadee SVGs called 3D St. Patrick's Characters Bundle. It comes with 5 designs, a terrier, 2 different leprechauns, unicorn, and a bunny. There are 6 layers and I made them to fit inside a 5 x 7 card. You can certainly added 3D foam between the layers, but as I was using them as cards I glued each layer on top of each other.

Simply Create Too - Challenge 167 - Use Heart(s)


For this month the Simply Create Too Design Team is looking for use of a heart or hearts. I made these super cute Corgi pups. I love these little dogs with their heart shaped bums. I wrote Be Hin' Valentine on the inside of the card, and pun on the Be Mine Valentine theme. The supper cute SVG file is from Okadee SVGs from Etsy or Design Bundle called St. Valentine's Puppies. There are three adorable puppies that can certainly be used for more than just Valentine's Day.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper February 2021 challenge


Hello everyone. For my card for February I picked a fun Valentine's theme. I made up Valentine cards for my grand daughter. I used a SVG file cut from Craft Genesis. It is a very simply design - no gluing required. I used patterns paper for either the backing or top layered butterfly. Both sides have a double slot and you simply insert the lollipop. I added a Happy Valentine's Stamp to the back and will add a tag with each child's name.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper January 2021 challenge


This is a new year, and while our governments are doing their best to get everyone a vaccination for the Covid19 virus we must still be careful. Wear a Mask, Wash your Hands, Social Distance. As a friendly reminder for friends and family, I created two cards. One show a Doctor (from Circuit's, Teddy Bears on Parade) wearing his mask, an the second a Covid19 virus with a mask (A SVG file I purchased on Etsy) The latter image I created two copies: one using an ugly patterned paper from my stash, and one using white cardstock for the card's back. I made stitch marks around the masks using a fine black marker. The best thing about this card is that you can utilize some of that ugly patterned paper you have around! Stay Safe everyone and join our monthly challenge
