Happy Camper Jumbo Paperclip

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick and easy project that I created using Eileen Hull’s 3D Camper Diecut.

I gathered leftover scraps of patterned cardstock, lace and an oversized paperclip to create a jumbo book mark for summer reading or to keep the map marked while traveling. I cut a floral patterned cardstock and a cream colored body of the camper (the cream cardstock I will back the floral body of the camper to make it more sturdy).

I cut out two each of the door and the window and adhered a piece of lace to the window and then adhered the other door and window to cover the back of the each. You wouldn’t have to do this but I wanted to add a little dimension to both diecuts.

I cut two of the rectangular diecuts from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags Thinlits (retired).

I folded in half and placed around the paperclip and adhered both ends together.

I glued the camper into each tab and adhered the cream colored diecut to the back side of the camper diecut.

I cut out a couple of flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped and adhered to the corner of the window. I added a gem to the center of the flower and a thread bow to finish it off. As always if you have any questions about this

Reminisce Tiny Book

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a project I actually started last year. I had received this paper pack, Eclectic Charm Collection, from the Blue Fern Studio booth when I went to Creativation in January 2020.

When I got back home I had decided that 6″x6″ paper pack would be prefect to use with the Tiny Book Diecut.

I wanted to make the spine wider on the Tiny Book. So I applied an Adhesive Sheet on both side of a Chipboard and placed the Picturesque (cover) and Friendship (inside) Cardstocks on top of the adhesive sheet and cut each cover with spine separately.

Then Covid happened and I didn’t pick up this project until March 2021. I worked on it between current design team projects and finally finished it…yay!!! I also realized that I didn’t get a photo of how I put both covers together. So I will do my best to explain…I cut a strip of cardstock the width of both spines and adhered and wrapped the excess around both ends of the spine and glued. I cut a strip of cardstock slightly smaller than the inside spine, punched holes on each end. I cut the cardstock from the pack slightly smaller than the cover, folded in half, punched holes in each and sewed to the strip of cardstock for the inside spine. Then I glued the strip to the inside spine and placed binder clips on each end of the spine until everything was completely dried.

There are so many flowers and images from this pack that I fussy cut everything a part. The cover I added Foam Pop Dots to the floral image before placing onto the cover.I cut a couple of the tiny flowers and the leaf sprig from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped and added a gem to the center of each flower along with a tiny piece of lace. I cut cording and run under the raised floral image on the cover and glued a piece of patterned cardstock to the back cover to keep the cording in place so I wouldn’t loose it.

The inside pages I added the fussy cut images and some of the pages I created pockets to hold mini tags.

It took me a year but there you have! Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog and see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to! You can find the latest blog posts HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE. Also if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Embrace Explosion Tiny Book Part Two

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a look inside my tiny book. If you missed my post on how I created the cover you can find it HERE. Also I realized I didn’t explain why I called this book an Explosion Tiny Book in the post from Tuesday. The simple explanation is the book won’t/can’t be closed because I crammed so much into the pages inside.

The inside cover I added a piece of a printable that was leftover from another project, adhered a scrap of lace and ric rac to create a flap and placed embroidered flower stickers to either side of the lace. I also glued leaf sprigs that I had cut from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to each flower.

The beige colored lace is from curtains that one of my cats shredded…I wasn’t happy about that…but I just couldn’t throwaway the lace so I used a bit for the page. The floral piece of chipboard is packaging from something I had received as a present. I was going to cut something from it with some of my diecuts but I thought it would make a prefect page. The little house tag I cut from the House Ornament Diecut, painted, added a rub on to the roof and flowers that I shaped and adhered to the corner of the tag. I punched a hole into the page, added the tag to a jump ring with ribbon to the page.

Side note before stitching the pages to the inside of the book I used one of the Border Stitchlits (retired) on the piece of fabric with teal embroidery thread, stitched over the diecutted area and added buttons. On the opposite page was a fussy cut image of a bird’s nest that I watercolored and added a fresh eggs diecut from my stash.

The doily I added a tea cup sticker, ribbon and a couple of chipboard pieces from my stash.

The backside of the doily I adhered fussy cut images of a cat with butterfly wings and a party hat to a jar diecut. The next page is an envelope that I cut down. I decorated with scraps of cardstock, a floral diecut, a tab leftover from me cutting a part a file folder and fussy cut images of women and the best friends sentiment. I added the largest tag from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits to the pocket.

I added patterned cardstock to the page before fussy cutting the bee image, watercoloring and gluing down. I had a leftover piece of the bookbinding from the Bookbinding and Label Thinlits that I adhered to the flap on the next page. I added a tulips cut apart and nature sticker to the top of the binding. I cut the smallest tag out from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits from a leftover piece of acetate and adhered to the bottom half of the binding.

The backside of the binding I glued the scalloped diecut from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits to dress up the back side of the flap. For the opposite page I used another tag that I decorated with flowers from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Thinlits (retired) and a leaf from the Spring Leaves Diecuts. I also added a cut a part sentiment to the page.

On the back side of the tag I adhered a fussy cut jar printable and glued a flower from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits and a fussy cut flowers to the jar. On the opposite page (it’s from a candy wrapper) I glued a fussy cut bird to the tab.

The back side of the candy wrapper I created a belly band and added another tag. On the opposite page I adhered scraps of cardstock to the envelope and added the sentiment and women printables to the page.

The envelope I glued cardstock around the “window” and added fussy cut images of flowers. I cut out three of the smallest tag diecuts, decorated and added to the pocket.

I added a spoon sticker and the original sentiment diecut to the doily. On the opposite page I adhered a set of flowers from the Flower, Heart and Soul Diecut (retired) and a leaf from the Spring Leaves Diecuts and a number 8 diecut from my stash to the center of the flower.

On the back side of the fabric I glued trim and pinned a tiny heart tag to the page. On the opposite page I adhered scraps of cardstock, fussy cut flower girl and a mini envelope, and pom pom trim to the page.

I cut out the largest tag (cut down a little to fit the pocket) and adhered a stamped image to the tag and placed inside the pocket on the inside cover. I had originally planned on tying the book closed and had added an eyelet to the back cover so I could run ribbon through but since it is a chunky little monkey of a book I just tied a bow into the eyelet and called it done!

This project definitely didn’t turn out how I had envisioned it would when I first started but I’m sure loving how it “explodes” all over the place.

As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Embrace Explosion Tiny Book Part One

Hi everyone! I’m here to share my project for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team. The theme this month is using unconventional materials with an assortment of diecuts. I had started one project with an empty plastic granola bag but the more I worked on it the worse the project looked. Soooo that was an epic fail and was thrown in the garbage.

The second project I had piece of leftover “spine” from a file folder I had cut a part. My intention was to create an extended Tiny Book Journal.

I folded the file folder in half, (make sure folded edge of the folder isn’t on the “cutting edge” of the Tiny Book Diecut) and used washi tape to hold in place while running through the Diecut Machine.

This is how the cover of the tiny book looked once I cut it. Not exactly what I had envisioned so I improvised.

I folded the almost cut into cover over on itself to reinforce the front cover.

I cut a part of the folder at an angle and adhered together so I could have a pocket in the back of the book.

I gathered up a piece of fabric, doily, patterned chipboard from packaging, an envelope, lace from a curtain that my cat shredded (insert mad face :-() and a candy wrapper.

I punched holed in the spine of the journal and all of the pages and sewed into the cover. Before tying off I threaded three buttons onto the outside of the spine. I added an assortment of circle punches, stickers, a little frozen Charlotte doll from my stash, a broken rhinestone buckle, lace, pom pom trim, thread and flower diecuts from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlits to decorate the cover.

I’m going to stop here for now and share the inside of my tiny book on Thursday in a blog post since it is a massive amount of photos. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog and see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have created! You can find the latest posts HERE and HERE.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 3

Hi everyone! I am back with the final post of the Wonderland Tea Party Folio series. If you missed the first two posts you can find them HERE and HERE.

This page has no pockets or flaps but I used a printable as the main focus and added a leftover bit of decorative cardstock, lace and pom pom trim.

I dug into my stash of Prima flowers which I layered, added a button and used the leaf and leaf sprig thinlits from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to finish off the flower.

I used the other insert that I had cut from the Photo Box Folder Diecut (retired) as an insert. All I added to it was the pointing finger sticker that I had in my stash.

I created this page with an assortment of printables, teacups, ticket stubs and a rabbit. The pocket holds a tag and cut a part and next to that is the Waterfall card that I cut from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits. I glued three of the sides down to create a “pocket” to hold more tags.

This page I created a belly band to hold a little book.

The book I created from an assortment of scraps of cardstock, notebook paper and a page from an Alice in Wonderland story book.

I did take the largest tag thinlit and folded a piece of patterned cardstock in half, placed slightly below the “cut” of the thinlit to create a page to sew into this book.

The last page of the journal I kept pretty simple. I created a double pocket from a printable and dressed it up with more Prima flowers and another leaf thinlit.

I didn’t mention in the previous posts about the closure I “was” going to use on my folio. I had actually punched holes, added brads and strung elastic to hold the journal together but I didn’t go back far enough with the holes on the journal to keep the elastic in place…it kept slipping off. So I adhered a small strip of cardstock to the back of the journal and on the inside I glued a piece of cardstock on three sides to create a pocket. Not what I had originally envisioned but it works!

I hope you have enjoyed following along on the process of this journal and as always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 2

Hi everyone! I’m back and I want to share a couple pages from my Wonderland Tea Party Folio (part three I will try and share tomorrow). If by chance you missed part one of my folio reveal you can find that post HERE.

I used the Pocket Thinlit from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to create a place to add tags and printables. I only glued it on two sides to create another pocket behind the pocket. I added a scalloped diecut from the Gift Box with Scallop Edges and Label Diecut that I had leftover from a previous project to the fold over on the pocket.

I adhered a couple of leaf sprigs that I had cut from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to a crocheted flower that I had in my stash to dress it up a bit.

I adhered an empty tea bag ( I carefully cut the top of the tea bag to create a pocket) on two sides to create another pocket. I cut out two of the smallest size tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits and added re-enforcers to the top of both tags. On one tag I glued the fussy cut image of the Mad Hatter to the top and on the other tag I added an Alice in Wonderland postage stamp from my stash. With this being a tea party theme I had to cut out a few of the teacups from the Teacup and Spoon Diecut and add as tag through out the journal.

The next page I matted with patterned cardstock and adhered a multi teacup printable (fussy cut) to create a pocket to hold the largest tag and teacup diecuts. I also added a teapot with tea time stickers to the bottom corner of the page.

I left the top of this page open so I could add an insert. I cut out two Photo Box Folders Diecuts (retired) (one to be used on an upcoming page) and glued a patterned cardstock, Alice image and oval diecut to one side of the insert. I adhered a fussy cut image to the tag too.

I used another printable that I fussy cut and adhered to create a pocket.

I embossed the tag with Queen of Heart Embossing Folder (retired), lightly inked over the embossed area with chalk ink and added a decorative brad to the top.

The next page I added another printable as a pocket.

I used the King of Spades Embossing Folder (retired) on this tag, lightly inked over the embossed area with a chalk ink and added the crown brad to the top of the tag.

This page has another set of double pockets with lots of tags and journaling cards.

Of course I had to add another teacup diecut to one of the pockets.

I’m going to stop here and will pick up (I hope) tomorrow with the final reveal of my journal. Eileen also has a new blog post today that shares more creativity from her team and you can find that post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 1

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a partial reveal of my folio that I created for Eileen Hull’s Chapter two Release Party (Thursday on my blog I’ll do a part 2 and maybe a part 3 on Friday…there’s a lot to share). I will start with how I created the cover of this folio so lets get started.

I cut two of the Folio Journal Diecut covers out from a file folder. Since the file folder isn’t as thick as the chipboard/mat board generally used to create the journal I ran each cover spine end first into the Diecut Machine. I ran that ends three to four times over the spine before finally running the whole diecut through the machine. I also used a bone folder to score the indention further before folded the spine on each cover and adhering together. Since I only ran the “cover” part of the diecut through once there is no indention . Plus it will be covered with cardstock/scrapbook paper to make it more sturdy.

I cut the “book hinge” from the Book Binding Thinlit, folded and applied Red Line Tape onto every other fold and stuck together.

I adhered the book hinge to the inside spine.

I cut patterned cardstock to fit/cover each side of the hinge. Instead of gluing each side of the page together I left an opening for a tag/insert. As you can see the initial folio started out tropical but with the cardstock being double sided I went with a colorful Alice in Wonderland instead.

The first page I used an assortment of leftover scraps, embellishments and printables. I glued only the bottom half of the heart to the page to create a pocket.

I applied an Adhesive Sheet to a piece of patterned cardstock before cutting out the wonderland sentiment from the Holiday Words Thinlits (retired). I glued/placed the chipboard letters that spell out Alice, the “in” sticker and the wonderland diecut onto the heart. The bunny is a printable and I used a flower and botton from my stash and I cut a leaf from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to complete.

As you can see there is a hidden surprise in the heart pocket! I cut two of the waterfall card thinlits out from Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits to create the covers for a mini booklet. I cut the pages inside smaller, punched holes in the covers, pages and tied together with bakers twine. I decorated with a fussy cut image of Alice and a diecut frame to finish.

I cut a tag for the inside of the page and added re-enforcer thinlit to either side of the tag before tying off fabric to the tag.

There you have it! As always if you have any questions please let me know. Also be sure to stop back Thursday to see more photos of the inside of this folio. If you aren’t caught up on the latest from Eileen Hull’s Inspiration and Educators Teams you can find these posts HERE and HERE.
