Lingerie Cards by Steph Ackerman

Lingerie Cards
Designed by Steph Ackerman

Good morning everyone, Steph Ackerman here having fun with products from KellyCraft™.  I love the Jimbo Lojik™ stamps - they are so much fun to work with and always make me laugh.  Some of the sentiments are priceless so I couldn't resist using them to create these fun lingerie cards.


KellyCraft™ Jimbo Lojik™ Stamp Set B
KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square & Multi-Mat™
Bazzill Cardstock
ColorBox Pigment Ink - Passion Pink
Cricut die cut machine
Helmar Fabric Glue
May Arts ribbon


Stamp the sentiments on white cardstock using the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square to stamp them

Die cut bra and panties from pink cardstock and ink with pink ink.  Using Helmar Fabric Glue adhere lace to both the bra and panties.  Back them with white cardstock.

Next, I adhered the bra sentiment using one of the magnets to hold it in place while aligning the bra.  Then I added a flower to the center with a brad.  I am always losing my craft pick so I was thrilled to find that the magnets hold my craft pick to the mat so I always know where it is. 

I use the Laser Square to align the second panel on the panties card. 
Adhere the sentiment to the card.  Then adhere the panties on an angle using foam adhesives to add
Offset the second panel on the bra card.  Next, adhere the bra to the card, placing foam adhesives under the cups for dimension.

I hope I've inspired you to create something today.   - Steph

Under the Sea at the Zoo Layout by Debbie Sherman

Under the Sea at the Zoo Layout
Designed by Debbie Sherman 

Hi friends!  Debbie with you today sharing a layout that I created using the Multi-Mat and the Get-It-Straight Laser Square. These are the best tools for making sure your layouts are straight every time!

This layout was so fun, lots of mixed media and the photos are just so fun!  The photos are of one of my grand sons while at a visit to the zoo. I wanted the layout to have a "oceany" effect so I added lots of color and beachy embellishments.  

I wanted the background to look like a weathered old treasure map so I distressed it and inked it heavily.  

Once I had the background created I started lining up all my mats and photos using the Multi-Mat™ and Get-It Straight Laser Square

Thanks for stopping by the KellyCraft Innovations blog today!

A Personality You Can't Handle Card by Martha Lucia Gomez

A Personality You Can't Handle Card
Designed by Martha Lucia Gomez 

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a Joy Fold Card. I know this is an "oldie" but a "goodie" and if you use your Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square, it will be a great project.


  • KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™
  • KellyCraft™ Jimbo Lojik™ Stamps - Set A
  • Prima Divine Stamp Set

  • Whisper White Cardstock
  • Designer Series Paper
  • Copic Markers
  • Bone Folder
  • Simply Scored
  • Snail Adhesive
  • Baker's Twine Black & White
  • Button


Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock of 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4 and fold into a ‘z’ with the fold at the bottom. Then cut a piece of designer paper of 4 x 2 1/2 and add it to the bottom panel
designer paper of 4 x 2 1/2 and add it to the bottom panel using your Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square.

Take a piece of Island Indigo cardstock of 3 x 8, score at 4 and fold. Then cut two pieces of Whisper White 2 7/8 x 3 7/8 each. Stamp your dancer image on one of these panels using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and color this using copic markers. Add the colored image to one of the flags of Island Indigo cardstock. Align it using the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square.

Add this piece inside the card, align and paste. Stamp your
sentiment on the second piece of whisper white cardstock using the Jimbo Lojik Stamp Set A and paste inside of the card.

Now your card is almost done. To close it perfectly, you need to create something to keep the flag in place.  I used a button tied with baker's twine. I aligned my embellishment using the Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square too.

Sam the Wonder Lab by Candice Windham

Sam the Wonder Lab Scrapbook Page
Designed by Candice Windham

We recently had to say goodbye to our all-time favorite pet, Sam the Wonder Lab. 

Sam was a stray who showed up at our door one Sunday morning in the summer of 1998. He was mangy, covered in fleas and had a bad ear infection. He went to our neighbor’s home first, but the neighbor’s wife said, “Howard, you don’t need a dog. I’ll put some food on Candice’s porch and she’ll keep him. Then you can pet him anytime you want.”

Once we got him to the vet, he quit scratching…but then started chewing: shrubs, cross ties from around our garden and Larry’s fishing boat, including gas lines, electrical wires, the interior carpeting and two life jackets. I thought Sam was going to lose his life that day, but he ran to Larry, wagged his tail with that big floppy tongue hanging out, and Larry’s heart melted.

I wanted to save my Facebook post about Sam and all the comments from my Facebook friends, so this page includes two pockets for hidden journaling. I didn’t add any excess embellishments because I wanted Sam to be the focus and I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out.

Here’s how I did it:


KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square
KellyCraft™ Multi-Mat Docking Station
Card Stock. three 12” X 12” sheets, double-side (Graphic 45)
Rust Brown Card Stock , 8” x 8” (Bazzill)
Tan Card Stock 7 ½” x 7” (Bazzill)
White cardstock, three sheets (Stampin’ Up!®)
Score Tape, ½”, double-stick
Distress Ink, Walnut Stain (Tim Holtz for Ranger, Inc.)
Paper Trimmer
Computer and Printer
White Computer Paper


Print the title block on plain white paper. Cut a piece of printed card stock slightly larger than the title block and tape it over the words. Run the page back through your printer to print the words on the printed card stock.

Tip: Use a light box or tape your white page to a sunny window to line up the card stock. It is only necessary to tape the leading edge of the card stock. If you get it a little off-center, just trim it a little more.

Cut the following from the printed card stock. Vary the prints and turn them in different ways to add interest to the page, such as the horizontally striped paper on the vertically striped background paper.
Printed Card Stock: 3” x 6 ¼” and 2 ¾” x 6” (two different prints)
4” x 11 ½” and 3 ¾” x 11 ¼” (two different prints)
7 ¾” x 7 ¾” 
12” x 12”

Sponge the edges of all photos and card stock with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Place the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight Laser Square in the KellyCraft Multi-Mat Docking Station. Place the 12” x 12” piece of card stock with the top of the sheet to the left on the KellyCraft Multi-Mat Docking Station and use the magnets to hold it in place. Attach the 4” x 11 ½” sheet of card stock ½” from the top (actually left side) and centered from side to side (actually top to bottom) with Scor-Tape. Center the 3 ¾” x 11 ¼” sheet of card stock on the first and secure it with Scor-Tape.
Turn the page so that the top of the page is lined up correctly on the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight Laser Square and  KellyCraft Multi-Mat Docking Station.

Rotate the paper on the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight Laser Square and KellyCraft Multi-Mat Docking Station so that the top of the page is in the proper place. Attach the top and bottom photos, lining them up about 1/8” from the top and bottom, then attach the center photo between the two.

Place the title block mat in place about ¼” from the bottom of the page and adhere with Scor-Tape.
Place Scor-Tape along three sides of the 8” card stock.

Place Scor-Tape on three sides of the 7 ¾” piece of printed card stock and adhere the sheets together, using the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight Laser Square and  KellyCraft Multi-Mat Docking Station  to center the pieces.

Attach the photo to the two layers with Score-Tape and use the KellyCraft Get-It-Straight Laser Square and  KellyCraft Multi-Mat Docking Station. Be sure that the two pockets without tape are at the top of the page.

Trim the journaling page and mount it to the tan cardstock, leaving
the top margin large enough to write the name and extend out of the larger pocket.
Fold the pages of the Facebook Friends’ Comments and slip them into the smaller pocket. If the pages are fat, press the edges with a bone folder to slim them down a bit.

That’s it. It took me longer to find and print out my Facebook pages than it did to create the page itself. Of course I was blubbering the whole time I was looking for photos and re-reading all the comments from my sweet friends.

Sam was the best dog ever, and now generations of my family will know all about him through my scrapbooks. 

Sleep in peace, dear Sam.

Hello Cupcake by Kristina Beagle

Hey Everyone! Kristina here today with a fun foiling project using my Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square. I love the look of foiling and don’t do it as much as I’d like, but was inspired by a video Jennifer McGuire recently posted using tape to do foiling! I didn’t have the Be Creative tape so I just cut the full size sheets into little ¼” strips. Here’s what I did.


KellyCraft™ Get-It-Straight™ Laser Square and Multi-Mat™
Bazzill Cardshoppe Cardstock
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
My Favorite Things: Pierced Circles
My Favorite Things: Stitched Fishtail Flags
MFT/Pure Innocense: Hello Cupcake
Copic Markers
Bone Folder
Pretty Pink Posh: Sequins


1- Starting with an a2 sized card base I set a line with my Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square ½” off the
top of the cardstock.

2- Remove the release paper from one side of the tape strip and adhere using the laser line as a guide.

3- Next, repeat this process ½” off the bottom of the cardstock, you will now how two tape strips adhered on each side of the card.

4- Using a bone folder, rub the tape down firmly, then remove the release paper.

5- Now, adhere small strips of foil to the exposed tape and rub lightly with your bone folder, you will not have two perfectly straight & foiled strips!

6- I went on to finish my card by adhering a 3” white layer between the two foiled strips, followed by
a circle to spotlight a colored image and sentiment.
