Listen Up Bird Mini Album

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with another project for Eileen Hull. If you didn’t know the theme this month on her blog is Birds, Nests and Eggs and I actually was able to finish a mini album in a bird theme using the Shadow Box Frames Set 1 Thinlits. Last week I shared a Butterfly Boy Tag as a substitute project since this has been a crazy month and wasn’t sure I would be able to crank out a bird project. But I did so let’s get started.

I cut out four of the “frames” in patterned cardstock.

I folded the smallest “tab” on all the “frames” and adhered those together along with the larger tabs to the inside of the larger tab. The larger tab will become the spine of the album.

I glued the fronts and the backs of the frames together to create the front and back covers of the album.

I cut a piece of patterned cardstock the width of the spine and then “butted” the larger tabs together and adhered the strip of patterned cardstock over the tabs. Next I cut to fit and put together the Bookbinding Thinlit and glued onto the inside of the spine. I cut out a total of eight frames, cut the larger tab off of each frames, folded the smaller tab and adhered each frame together to create four pages. Those were then glued to each “hinge” on the inside of the spine.

Now for the fun! I dug into my stash of embellishments along with using the flowers, leaves and sprigs from the Folio Page Pocket and Flower, Shadow Box Elements and Wreath and Snowflakes Thinlits and decorated each page.

I used label diecuts from the Full Size Journal Diecut, Bookplate, Hinges and Label Thinlits (retired) and flowers from theShadow Box Elements Thinlits. Also I stamped the “listen up” sentiment and a label from the Making Plans Stamp Set and used an assortment of embellishments to decorate the cover.

Making Plans Release Party with Eileen Hull

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest stamp set called Making Plans with Maker Forte! This set of stamps has so many possibilities! From cards, tags, journals and so much more! I used these stamps on the cover of an unfinished album from a tutorial that Eileen shared on one of her Facebook Lives. Anyways, let’s get started!

I placed an assortment of the label stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked and stamped onto Cream Cardstock and various patterned scraps of cardstock. I also inked up the “dream a little” sentiment stamp and stamped onto one of the labels I had already stamped. I fussy cut all of the labels out and what I don’t use now will be used in finishing the inside…the plan is to do a part two blog post later…so stay tuned!

I also used an assortment of diecuts/thinlits to decorate the cover: Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlits, Shadow Box Frames Set 01 Thinlits, Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, Mandala Thinlit, Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits and Full Size Journal Diecut. Can you spot the diecuts I used?

The label stamps are so fun to layer! I had a “partial” label diecut from the Extra Large Journal Diecut that I layered with a bookplate and the “dream a little” sentiment, used water splatter rub ons (49 and Market) and more label stamps along with several flowers, leaves gems and thread loops to finish the cover.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog for more creativity from the Inspiration and Educator Teams and details on how you can purchase this stamp set. You can find the blog HERE.

Vintage Inspired Button Decor Piece

Hi everyone! For the month of March Eileen Hull’s Inspiration and Educator Teams have been challenged to create something using felt, fabric and fiber and this is what I came up with!

I had fun, for the most part, altering an empty Laughing Cow container and turning it into a fun home decor piece. Originally I was going to create the container where it opened and things could be stored inside but the project went side ways. UGH! I completely abandoned that idea when I couldn’t get the inside of the container fixed the way I wanted it to look.

First off, I placed the container on top of a piece of cardstock and drew around the container (twice, one each for the top and bottom of the container) and cut both circles out. I placed the circles into the 3D Vintage Button Embossing Folder and ran through the Diecut Machine. Next, I applied Gold Luster Wax lightly over the embossed button images.

I adhered the top and bottom of the container together before adding the embossed images, lace and Pom Pom trim.

I cut two Mandala Thinlits from tissue paper and folded to create a lace like trim for the top of the container.

I placed two of the button card stamps from the Button Cards #2 Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Brown Ink and stamped onto a piece of Cream Cardstock. I cut both images out, roughed up and added ink around the edges.

The Mandala Thinlits I had cut out earlier I glued to the container.

The button cards I adhered the bottom of each to the container and placed Foam Pop Dots at the top of cards. I dug into my stash of old buttons (that had been cut off whatever that had been sewn onto) and glued to the smaller button card.

I once again dug into my stash and this time I used flowers and leaves that I had cut out from the Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Thinlits (retired). All I had to do was ink and shape before adding to the top of the container.

I finished off the piece by adding cording and thread bows, loose buttons, pearl sprays and a pearl top pin. I love the fact that I was able to up-cycle the cheese container and turn it into something to be used as decor in the home.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog for more inspiration for both of her teams! You can find the latest posts HERE and HERE.

Maker Forte, Eileen Hull and a Special Delivery Card

Hi everyone! Today is the day for Eileen Hull’s newest stamp release with Maker Forte! I used two of the stamps from the Snail Mail-Postage Stamp Set and an assortment of Eileen’s diecuts to create this gift card holder. Let’s get started!

First I cut two “solid card” and one “postage” diecuts from the Snail Mail Thinlits.

Next I folded and adhered the top and bottom edges of the “postage” die (leaving the long side open) to each side of the of the “solid card”.

I ran the Mandala Thinlit through the Diecut Machine, cut the Mandala die in half and glued underneath the “pocket” on the front of the card.

I placed the stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Brown Ink and stamped onto a piece of Cream Cardstock.

I dug into my stash and used flowers and leaves from Flowers and Leaves Thinlits (retired) to add to the stamp images along with a cut a part sentiment and thread to finish off the card. Just add a gift card and write a note inside and it’s ready to give!

Unbutton Your Mind Art Journal Page

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with a art journal page I create using Eileen Hull’s Vintage Damask Stamp Set and Button’s Cards and More Stamp Set. I also used one of the bodies from the Paper Dolls Manly Printables and the butterfly wings from the Extravagant Paper Dolls Printables. Let’s get started!

I placed the button card stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with a Brown Ink and stamped onto a piece of Cream Cardstock. The Damask Stamp I completed the same steps as with the button card stamp but stamped onto a piece of Navy Cardstock.

Next I used an assortment of embossing powders to “grudge up” the damask image.

I cut a piece of patterned cardstock slightly larger than the stamped images. I adhered the damask and button card images onto the patterned cardstock.

I fussy cut out a body, crown and butterfly wings and before placing onto the page I adhered buttons with cording to the button card. I glued the butterfly wings to the body and added Foam Pop Dots and placed onto the page. Next two buttons together and adhered where the head should be on the body. I finished by gluing the crown to the head, printing and cutting out the “Unbutton Your Mind” sentiment to the page.

Her Heart was a Secret Garden Journal Page

Hi everyone! I’m back with a semi quick (lots of fussy cutting) journal page I created using Eileen Hull’s Snail Mail Everyday Sentiments Stamps by Maker Forte.

I placed the grid stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with a Dark Brown Chocolate Ink and stamped a piece of Cream Cardstock. Once dry I cut off the off the cream colored edges. As you can see I accidentally got ink in one of the boxes when I stamped the image but no worries it will be covered.

I gathered up scraps of patterned cardstock, a flatback pearl, resin flower, thread and I fussy cut images I had printed from itKuPiLLiimaginarium on Etsy.

I also used a small heart die from the Mitten Box Diecut and the leaf sprig die from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to decorate page.

Now all I have to do is add it to my art journal that I’ve been slowly filling. If you would more inspiration stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see what her team has been up to. You can find her blog HERE.

And I Think to Myself Card

Hi everyone! Did you know that Eileen Hull now has a line of rubber stamps? Well, she does! You can find her stamps at Maker Forte which can be found HERE.

But I’m back this week with a card I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Wonderful World of Flowers Stamp Set.

I had this 5″x6″ card base I had started but never finished (story of my life tons of unfinished projects ūüėČ ). So I thought this base would show case this set of stamps really well.

First I placed the flowers and sentiment onto the MISTI Stamp Tool, inked with Waterproof Black Ink onto a Heavy Weight Cardstock. Next I used a combo of Watercolors and Colored Pencils to fill in the flowers and once dry I fussy cut a part.

Before adhering the sentiment to the card base I framed the sentiment with a piece of patterned cardstock.

I cut the leaves off of the flowers before shaping all with a Stylus. I added the flowers and leaves to the sentiment along with a button and Dew Drop to the center of each flower and thread bows to finish off the card.
