Marianne Creatables - Anja Vintage - LR0269 - LR0273

This is my 3rd release at Dutchpapercrafts. Do check out the video at Darlene's if you came here directly.
This is a beautiful set of dies. Lol - To  me all dies are beautiful. I just love dies. Hope after seeing these creations it inspires you to buy the dies too at Dutchpapercrafts

Here are the projects -

Most of the dies used are the above dies. In case I used any extra die, embossing folder or stamp I will try to list it in the project

1) Carousel Circle exploding mini album

You can see youtube for links on how to make the mini album.
Here are a couple of links


Now the only thing I did was calculate the circle size I needed as the width of LR0269 is 5" so with a bit of Pythagoras theorem (ha ha nice talking maths lol) the approx size of circle is around 7.2" so you can make a circle diameter as 7.25" . If you have grand calibur and grand circle die (not the small ones but the huge ones) then use the outermost circle. Well if you can cut svg then I do have a file for you. You can download under the svg tab in this blog. I will also make a svg for the petal card and the 4 drawer card .
Here is just the image only

Ok so here are the pictures of my mini album.
Before layering I added ribbon and then layered the quarter circles. This ribbon keeps both the mini album closed and when in carousel open mode (lol) you tie it up to keep it open too.

The large flower was a wooden die cut from micheals. The smaller rose was handmade bu just cutting a spiral free hand (wonkier the better lol ) and rolling it.

Now the anja die LR0269 and right hand doe of lr270 are edger dies. To get this shape I just cut out straight edge using cutter.
More images

I also cut out tags . I used LR0270 (left die from top picture) and stuck only half to paper to insert the tag as you can see below.

2) Box Card

This is my 2nd box card (for the 1st see linnk - http://www.thebugbytes.com/2012/12/box-card.html )

This card can easily be made without the svg file too. To see how the card is made you can search for videos on youtube.
Here is just an image on the box card file for those who don't have a machine that cuts svg's.
Use a full 8.5 x 11 (ie letter size) paper
score 2.5" from one end (long end) and then 1.5". Repeat on the other side of the long side), Then turn over to short end (8.5) Score 1.5" from both ends. Then you can fold and then cut away (cuts where 4" ie 2.5 +1.5" meets with the perpendicular 1.5")

The stamp is Anna Griffin sentiments

I made pins by embossing with UTEE. (I did not dip in melting pot as I did not want to cover up the holes but I used versamark and embossed with UTEE instead of plain powder)

3) Petal Card

I have an svg file for this as well .

The inside

The small flower is from Anna Griffin dies (I just cut off a small portion of that huge die cut). The stems annd swirls are from this release. Stamp is also Anna Griffin. 

If you don't have an svg then just draw a square of 5x5 and then a semicircle of radius 2.5" from center of each side

4) Purse card

I saw this video and adapted the purse. 
The measurement to get the 5" width we need is 10"x 12" instead of 81/2 x 11
And I do have an svg file.

Here is my purse. I used velcro to close with one of the dies from  lr0273 as clasp. I added some bead chain for handle

Some tags to go inside the purse ( I think the stamps are from studio G not sure as one of my friends Dawn gave these to me.)

5) 4 drawer easel card (6"x6")

The easel is made from 6 x 12 card and for the top of the easel and the bottom base of the drawer 2 - 6x 6 sheets. I have a svg file just for the drawers and shelf and not for the rest.
Here is a look at how the drawers go in the box. All drawers are same size (2.5"x3.5" when assembled. Used different colors to distinguish)
I have the svg file and you can also search for videos on youtube.

In case you dont have a machine here is a jpg which explains the dimension

You just have to add a 6x 6 for base where you stick the drawers
and for the easel top top-   a 12 x6 (scored at 3 and 6 for easel part)  and another 6 x 6 which attaches  on one half of the easel)

So basically you need
4 pieces of 3 -1/2" x 8"  (shelf
4 pieces of 4 - 3/8" x 5 - 3/8" (drawers)
2 pieces of 6" x 6"
1 piece 12" x 6"

The card box

Top stamp and Die - Heartfelt creations -Tattered Blossoms
(Die - HCD 722 & stamps - HCPC 3468, HCPC 3469)
The tattered blossom dies and stamps are available at Dutchpapercrafts
Sentiments and inside butterfly & flourish - Florishes Stamps -Butterflies and Blossoms Set- SS138
Paper Clip - just a clip with the diecut (Glittered and added glossy accents)

Side view

Hope these projects inspired you. Aren't the dies so intricate and beautiful?

Very pretty and unusual cards Pam, they are gorgeous. I seen them on Darlene's and came to see how to
recreate them. Sadly you have the patterns on .svg files, but even more sad to me, I dont have a cutting machine to be able to use them. I was hoping you have video tutorials for these or possibly would think of adding them at another time.
