Field Notes Journal

Hi everyone! After I short break from the holidays I’m back with a project I created for the collaborating between Eileen Hull’s teams and GelPress! This collab has been going on the whole month of January and at the end of this post I will share links for those posts.

I chose to use a cut out I had laying around from the Notebook Diecut-663635(retired).

I gathered up some stencils, acrylic paints along with the Gel Press Printing Plate and Brayer. I’m looking forward to trying the plate and the brayer since this will be the first time using these. So let’s get started!

First I applied dollops of paint to the plate and with the brayer covered the plate with the paint.

I placed the notebook diecut (cover side down), placed a piece of cardstock over the diecut and plate and with the brayer rolled over the diecut and plate. The photo below is just paint that’s been applied to the plate with no stencils. It’s kind of cool how the paint separated on the plate and left negative areas on the notebook diecut.

I applied more paint to the plate and used two stencils, Petal Stencil and Handcut Blossom 12″x12″ Stencil (discontinued), to add texture and a design to the cover.

I had a leftover label from another project from the Full Size Journal Diecut which I applied paint with the plate and brayer. I also used the Field Notes Stamp from the Field Notes Nature Stamp Set (discontinued) and stamped the label. I strung two pieces of elastic cording through the ends of the label and tied.

I slipped the label and elastic around the spine of the notebook and placed two store bought notebooks under the elastic.

From my stash of fussy cut printables I adhered a floral bulb to the cover to complete.

If you would like to know more about GelPress you can find them HERE for more inspiration. Also if you haven’t seen the latest projects by Eileen’s Inspiration and Educator Teams you can find those posts HERE and HERE.

Christmas Trees and Snowmen Decor

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a quick and easy home decor project I created for the Comfort and Joy Event hosted by Eileen Hull!

I used the tree diecuts from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut and the label from the Full Size Journal Diecut to create this project. Lets get started!

The base of this project is an empty can of wax. I did give the inside a good clean before tapping the lid on tightly before decorating.

I dug into my Christmas papers, selected and covered the can sides and the top with a festive patterned cardstock. I also adhered lace around the top and bottom and added a snowflake ornament ( I’ve used these snowflakes in several of my projects) to the top of the can.

I cut several of the large and small tree diecuts from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut.

The large tree I cut the “trunk” off and folded all the trees in half and adhered to a small wooden dowel. The smaller tree I did the same steps except I glued the tree dies back to back.

I adhered the trees along with two snowman stickers from my stash and Baubles to the top of the can. I also applied Stickles onto the trees and baubles and added the label diecut, with Foam Pop Dots to the back, from the Full Size Journal Diecut to the front of the can and a Happy Holidays sticker to finish.

If you haven’t been following Eileen on her Facebook Lives during the Comfort and Joy Event I’ve attached the link from her blog that shares a link to her fan club where you can join and watch her lives. You can find that post HERE.

Mittens and Sweater Card

Hi everyone! I want to share a quick card I created using the Sweater Embossing Folder, the snowflake from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and the mitten from the Mitten Box Diecut. Let’s get started!

I cut and folded a piece of patterned cardstock to create a 4 1/2″x6 1/2″ card base. Next I embossed a piece of Aqua Blue Cardstock with the Sweater Embossing Folder, lightly inked over the raised areas with a Blue Chalk Ink and adhered two strips of patterned cardstock to the embossed cardstock. I added Foam Pop Dots to the embossed cardstock and placed onto the card base.

I ran the Mitten Diecut through the Diecut Machine a couple of times, once for patterned and once for plain cardstocks. I inked the edges of the mitten with a blue chalk ink and glued together.

I cut out a snowflake from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and glued to the mitten along with a vintage button. I placed foam pop dots to the back of the mitten before placing on the card base.

I adhered a cut a part that I found in my stash off center of the mitten, added flat back pearls to the snowflake and several loops of thread to the button and called the card finished!

An Aspen Christmas Tag

Hi everyone! You know Christmas is only a few months away right? And since it is my favorite holiday I had to created a little pastel Christmas tag for Blank Page Muse using the Aspen Creepy Cute Kid Rubber Stamp.

I placed the girl stamp onto MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with waterproof Black Ink and stamped the image onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I used an assortment of watercolors and colored pencil to fill in the girl before fussy cutting the image out.

I cut out two, one of each designs, pink and white striped and polka dots tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits. I inked the edges and dug out scraps of patterned cardstock to make banners before adhering to the tag along with the girl image.

I dug into my stash of diecuts and added a holly diecut, thread bows and pearl sprays to the corner of the tag. To finish I adhered Pom Pom Trim to the bottom and Hot Pink Ribbon to the top of the tag.

Take Me to the Beach Tag Card

Hi everyone! I’m back this week to share my project I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team this month. I’ve been longing for the beach so I decided I would create a simple fold over tag card using an assortment of Eileen’s diecuts, thinlits and a new printable that I picked up on Etsy.

I started by folding a piece of Kraft Cardstock in half and placing slightly below the cut line on the top of the largest Tag Thinlit Die from Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits.

I thought I had photographed steps of embossing and the dies I had cut out but I didn’t…so sorry about that but it does happen especially when I get into a groove and I’m crafting away.

I embossed one end of the tag with Star Burst Embossing Folder (#659879 retired) and lightly inked of that with a mix blues, greens and purple chalk inks. I cut out the middle size tag from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits, the circle diecut from the Ornament Box Diecut and the wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits along with a couple of beach girls that I printed from the Beach Girls Printable and cut out.

Before adhering the middle size tag to the base of the card I embossed and lightly applied chalk ink to the raised areas. Next I added two small strips of patterned cardstock toward the bottom of the card before gluing the circle and wreath to the base of the card. I printed the “Take Me to the Beach” and “Do You Hear the Ocean?” sentiments from my computer, cut out, inked edges and added the first sentiment to the base. I also adhered the woman in the bathing suit and two sand dollars that I had fussy cut from a scrap of cardstock to the card and added a flatback pearl to the center of the sand dollar.

The inside of the card I dug up a shell diecut from my stash and with a crafters knife I cut a “pocket” along the inside edge of the shell.

I glued the bottom of the shell diecut to the card, added the other sentiment to the bottom corner and placed the bathing suit girls in the slit of the shell.

If I choose to, later on, I can add more tags or I could even place a gift card in the “pocket” behind the shell and give as a gift. There’s endless possibilities.

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you haven’t stopped by Eileen Hull’s blog lately to see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up you can find those posts HERE and HERE.

DCC and Gwen Studios Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my project I created for the Designer Crafts Connection and Gwen Studios blog hop!

Gwen Studios has a wonderful selection of beautiful ribbons, trims and bows and I’m so excited to be able to use a few of these on my journal page!

I love to use up what scraps of cardstock that I have laying around so I decided to create a page for my journal. First I gathered scraps of patterned cardstocks and the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set.

I adhered the scraps of cardstocks together and cut a piece of the peach ribbon to fit the bottom of the page. I punched a hole into the ribbon and cardstock on either side of the page. I selected from the Oh Snap! Snap Fastener Kit (online Walmart July 2021) a heart shaped snap, placed into the punched hole and set with the fastener tool.

I cut and glued a piece of the tassel from the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set to the side of the page.

I added a flamingo and flower diecuts that was laying on my desk to finish the page.

Be sure to stop by the DCC blog to see what the other members of the team have created. You can find the link HERE.

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.
