We are Blessed Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on quick before this month ended and share another March themed tag I created. (I almost forgot…up oh!) This was the leftovers from the Authentique Calendar Paper Pad ( plan is to do something each month with the cardstocks…fingers crossed). I fussy cut several of the images out from the cut a parts that was included with that month. I used tiny scraps that I had leftover, inked edges and added a flower and leaf sprig from the Foilo Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlit Dies along with a piece of lace. I also shaped the fussy cut shamrock with a Stylus that is on the corner of the sentiment.

The back of the tag I kept it pretty simple with the layers. But I did used a shamrock stamp by Colorbox (no longer in business but still a favorite), fussy cut and shaped with a stylus before adhering to the bottom corner of the tag. I hope you enjoyed this quick post and as always if you have any questions please let me know.

Happy 8 Journal Page

Hi everyone! If you remember a week or so ago I shared the Vintage Girls and Flower Page (you can find that post HERE) and I wanted to share another page I created for my journal with you all today.

I wanted to create a page to commemorate mine and my husband’s anniversary. I dug into my stash and grabbed a wedding couple from a pack of the Paper Dolls, some markers and colored the bouquet of flowers, the head band and the boutonniere.

I used a scrap of patterned cardstock as the base for my page and more leftover cardstock, a lone diecut and half of a doily to decorate the page.

I found a marriage license that I had printed off but never used. I adhered the wedding couple to the printable and glued to the page.

I diecut the Happy and number 8 diecuts out and adhered toward the bottom corner of the page. I also cut one small flower from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Diecuts, shaped with a Stylus and added a leaf from a punch and placed onto the number 8.

There you have it! If you have any questions about this page please let me know.

Bunny Basket

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project this month for Eileen Hull! Since Easter is a less than a month away I wanted to show you how to create an Easter basket using the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits Dies and the Teacup and Spoon Diecut. Lets get started!

From the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits I cut two of the corner pockets with flaps and from the Teacup and Spoon Die I cut the “pocket” diecut out. I folded the “pocket” in half.

While still folded in half I cut a “v” out on either side of the flap.

While still folded I punched a hole at the top and added an eyelet on either side for the handle.

I adhered the corner pocket dies to each side of the flaps on the “pocket”.

I cut out two corner dies without flaps and glued to the inside of the pocket to cover the tabs and make it look neater.

I tied a 12 inch pipe cleaner to either side of the basket.

I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the bunny image and placed onto the front of the basket. Next I shaped flowers and sprig dies, placed a gem in the center of each flower and added to the bunny image.

I tied bits of lace to the handle and a shaped flower and a carrot sticker. Added Easter grass and bite size candies, a little bird and fake eggs to finish this adorable basket.

Leprechaun Kisses and Shamrock Wishes Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on and share a St. Patrick’s Day tag I created using the March cardstock set from the Authentique Calendar Paper Pad (I’m still shopping my stash).

First off I cut a tag out from the Tim Holtz’s Tag Diecut Set (largest diecut). I cut all the cut a parts from the March set in the paper pad out and even when further by fussy cutting certain images out. Next I shaped the shamrocks with a Stylus to add dimension, inked edges of the tag, a decorative diecut (from my stash) and cut a parts before assembling all the pieces together. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the leprechaun image and green thread bows before placing onto the tag.

Vintage Girls and Flower Page

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on today and share a page I created using stickers, scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper I have laying around along with flowers and leave diecuts from the Floral Garden Diecuts Set…those where in my stash of scraps and leftovers.

I started with a 3 3/8″x5 3/8″ patterned cardstock as the base for my page. Next I placed a circle punch that had been embossed onto the center of the base and a sticker down the side (Apologies for the dark looking photo I really thought I had taken a better photo than that.) It’s ok that the sticker is hanging off either side of the base because I will be adhering the finished project to a page in one of the journals that I have created…I’ll share more later on which journal I will be using.

The images of the vintage girls are from a piece of wrapping paper I had started fussy cutting but didn’t finish. I finished fussy cutting those out and then I went through my stash to figure out what scraps and stickers I wanted to include on the page.

I adhered bits of cardstock, banner diecuts, heart punch and diecut images to the base. I added an assortment of patterned paper to the girl images before applying Foam Pop Dots and placing on the base.

I shaped the flowers and leaves diecuts from the Floral Garden Diecuts Set and glued to the page along with thread bows, gems in the center of the flowers and a leftover gem swirl from my stash.

I can’t wait to add this to the first page in my journal! I’m still deciding if I ought to wait and do a complete reveal of what journal I chosen to work with or share again (hint this is a journal that I posted about last year). Also I’m going to add a couple more embellishments to the cover of my journal….to me it looks bland. Let me know in the comments below share now or wait for a completed journal reveal.

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

Beacon Adhesive: Zip Dry Adhesive

Faith, Love, Hope and Luck Tag

Hi everyone and happy first day of March! I wanted to share a tag I created using the Authentique Calendar Collection, Mandala Thinlit Diecut and the flowers and leaves from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Diecuts.

I started by selecting the March cardstocks from the Calendar Collection. I cut the solid double sided green cardstock 5 1/8″x10 1/2″ (size of a #12 tag) and punched a hole in the top of the tag.

From the same collection I cut, inked edges and adhered patterned cardstock to both sides of the tag.

I cut one Mandala Die out of warm white cardstock and glued to the tag. Next I fussy cut the woman with horseshoe and the horseshoe with shamrocks and flowers out and I adhered the smaller horseshoe image to the bottom corner of the tag.

The larger image I shaped the shamrocks, placed Foam Pop Dots to the back and placed onto the tag. I added lace, cording and thread bows along with flowers and sprigs I had cut from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Dies.

Before adhering the flowers and sprigs to the tag I shaped and added a glossy dot to the center of each flower. I placed foam pop dots to the back of sentiment before adding a cardstock mat and adhering to the side of the tag.

The back side of the tag I fussy cut a woman with harp, Erin Go Bragh sentiment and postage stamps out and adhered to the tag.

I didn’t “bulk up” this side of the tag with many layers. I placed foam pop dots on the back side of the March verbiage before placing at an angle on the tag. I cut and shaped flowers and leaves from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Dies and adhered to either side of the March sign. I finished by adding a glossy dot to the center of each flower and thread, lace and cheese cloth.

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you want to see more projects using the diecuts I used you can hop over to Eileen Hull’s blog to see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to. You can find her blog HERE.

Bird Folio Journal Reveal Part One

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project for Eileen Hull and the reveal (part one) of the inside of my journal I created using Eileen Hull’s Folio Journal Diecut and Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. If you missed the big Chapter 1 Release Party that Eileen hosted at the beginning of the month I have a blog post with details and more photos and instructions on how I created the cover of my folio journal. You can find that post HERE.

I placed a piece of folded patterned cardstock slightly past the cut line of the page diecut (from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits), placed washi tape on the thinlit and cardstock before running through the Diecut Machine. I cut three pages/papers per signature for a total of nine pages/papers but today I’m only sharing the first set of pages.

I punched holes and added the claps with brads and then covered with a piece of patterned cardstock. This secures the clasps and brads in place. Side note…I forgot to include this step in the post where I shared how I created the cover….ooops!

I slide the pages up under the elastic cording in the spine and tied ribbon over the elastic before I started decorating the pages. The inside cover I adhered a pocket, shaped and added a flower and leaf to the pocket along with a gem to the center of the flower. The pocket is a great place to store journaling cards or photos. On the first page I added a glassine bag with washi tape. I dug into my stash and found this birdcage die which I adhered to the bag. I placed two tags inside the glassine bag and added flowers and sprigs, one to the tag and one to the corner of the birdcage.

On the inside of the glassine bag I added a bird and shaped punch and more flowers and a sprig along with a piece of trim at the bottom of the bag.

The next several pages I decorated with an assortment of tags, diecuts, stickers, thread, cheese cloth and the flowers, leaf and sprig thinlits. Most of the flowers I added gems or flat back pearls to the center, and I also shaped with a Stylus.

There you have it part one of the inside of my folio journal! If you haven’t been by Eileen’s blog to see what the Inspiration Team has been up to lately you can find this month’s blog posts HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about the pages or what products I used (I shopped my stash) please let me know. I’ll do my best to answer.
