September Apple Harvest Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick end of the month project I created using some cut a parts and cardstock from the Authentique Calendar Collection (retired). So let’s get started!

I cut a 5″x10 1/2″ piece of patterned cardstock and a 4″x8 1/2″ plain piece of cardstock out. I cut off the top edges of both and punched a hole in the top of each tag. I also inked the edges with chalk ink.

One sheet of cardstock had an assortment of cut a parts which I cut and selected the ones I would use on the tag.

I inked edges and adhered the cut a parts to the tag. Next I diecut leaves and leaf sprigs from the Funky Foliage Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus and glued under the cut a parts.

I also decorated the other side of the tag by adhering the smaller tag slightly off center of the larger tag.

Next I glued the September, Apples tag and people picking apples cut a parts onto the tag.

I placed more of the leaves and leaf sprigs under the September and apples tags.

I finished off by adding cording and thread to the leaves on both sides of the tag.

Hey Friend Card

Hi everyone! As I’m slowly getting back into the swing of crafting, from a busy couple of months of things pertaining to family and all things summer, I want to share a card I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! This month’s theme is cards and I used the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits along with a few other dies, embossing folder and thinlits by Eileen. So let’s get started!

I originally was going to cover a per-cut card base with the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit and do the usual decorating. But when I I placed the Thinlits onto the piece of glittered cardstock ( I ran the die through the machine two times) it didn’t cut through. Instead of tossing I decided I would fold in half and create a card base. I did back the inside with a piece of light pink cardstock before decorating the front.

Next I cut out the circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and embossed with the Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly inked over the raised areas before adhering to the card base.

I dug into my big stash of scraps and cut out flowers, wreath and leaf sprigs from the following thinlits: Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I placed Foam Pop Dots onto the back of two strips of patterned cardstock and placed onto the card base.

Next I glued a piece of wood looking cardstock under the raised patterned cardstock along with the wreath die.

I shaped the flowers and leaf sprigs with a Stylus and adhered to the card base.

I added Glossy Dots to the centers of each flower. Also I printed, cut and chalked the edges of a “Hey Friend!” sentiment and placed onto the card to finish.

Little Home Mini Album

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick little little album I created a couple of months ago. I had received the Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits and if you know me I can’t just make what the dies are intended to be used for. When I created this I didn’t do any step out photos because I wasn’t even sure I could make it work. I did create another album with steps last month. If you would like to take a look at that post it can be found HERE.

I used the Carousel 6″x8″ Paper Pad for the cover. As well as some of the scraps from this pad where used for the inside pages and embellishments.

I cut out four of the smaller “frames”, folded the flaps (to the inside) and glued both flaps together to create a pocket for the front and back of the cover. The larger flaps I glued together to create the spine for the mini album. I punched holes, added eyelets and strung elastic cording through the holes and tied off inside.

I decorated the cover with and assortment of thinlits and one diecut which included: Shadow Box Elements, Snail Mail, Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers and Scallop Border Movers and Shapers Diecut (retired). Also I used the scalloped die to create the “roof” for the cover of the album. I side note I did cut out several houses, flowers, vines and leaves from all the little bits of scraps of cardstock I had laying around. I figured if I didn’t use it all on this project I would eventually use it on something else.

I did cut out two tags for each cover pocket. I added a Tag reinforcer (Waterfall Card and Tag Thinlits) to the top each tag along with a bit of seam binding.

The inside pages I cut and placed under the elastic cording and proceeded to decorate with the extra houses, flowers, leaves, etc, thinlits that I had cut out a head of time.

I forgot to added I also cut several leaf sprigs from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and used through album.

If you haven’t checked out Eileen Hull’s blog lately, the theme this month is all about using those little scraps of cardstock! You can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.

The Fancy Free Bee Hive

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with a extra large tag I created using the sheets of cardstocks from the June Calendar Collection (retired) by Authentique. I also used an assortment of Eileen Hull’s flowers, leaves and leaf sprig thinlits to dress up both sides of the tag. So, let’s get started!

With this June set of cardstocks, there is one patterned double sided sheet, one plain double sided sheet and one cut a part with images on one side and patterned cardstock on the other side. The first tag I cut the patterned cardstock 10 1/2″x5 1/4″ and punched a hole in the top. The second tag I cut from the plain cardstock 8 1/2″x4 1/4″ and punched a hole in the top also. I cut two of the tag reinforcers from the Waterfall Card and Tag Thinlits and adhered to the holes punched in each tag.

I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the plain tag and placed slightly off the larger tag. I glued midway of the smaller tag three strips of cardstock to create banners. The bee and daisy cut a part I adhered slightly off the smaller tag and arranged the two stamps and the sentiment cut a parts around the bee image.

I cut flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs from the following Thinlits: Folio Page Pocket and Flowers and Flower and Leaf Stitchlits (retired) and shaped with a Stylus, layered the flowers with leaves and added gems to the center. I finished off with loops of thread, sequins and a little bit of lace.

The other side of the tag I stacked and adhered two different patterned cardstocks slightly off center of each other along with a fairy and bee image I fussy cut. The June image I cut down and added a mat before placing on the tag along with a fussy cut image of yellow roses. I matted the “fancy-free” sentiment and placed over the fairy. The “Summer Time and the Living is Easy” sentiment I placed under the June image.

I shaped and adhered more flowers and leaves to the tag with loops of thread and a bow made from Hemp Cord to finish.

I still have more cut a parts and cardstock leftover and I’m hoping I can squeak out another tag or maybe even a card before the month is over.

You are a Natural Beauty

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I actually created several months ago for Eileen Hull’s Chapter One Release and never got around to sharing. This project I used the Book Box Diecut but used the hinge on the shorter side of the box instead of the longer side.

I placed Adhesive Sheets on both side of the Mat Board before adding cardstock (Lakeside Blooms Paper Pad (discontinued)) to either side and running through the Diecut Machine.

I put the box together according to the directions but as I stated above I cut the hinge down to fit the side of the box because I had a “mess up” that I had to cover up…ooops!

I cut out a frame from the Books and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut (retired). I placed Foam Pop Dots on the back before placing onto the box. I used embellishments from the Vintage Artistry Sage Collection, a couple of store bought flowers and flower diecuts from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to decorate the lid of the box.

I adhered lace, thread and added gems to the center of the flowers to finish off the box.

Listen to Your Heart

Hi everyone! I want to share a card I created with you all today. At Christmas I received a craft box as a gift that had an assortment of card blanks, patterned cardstock, diecuts, stickers, etc. in it. I finally dug out one of the card blanks and decided to decorate it and this is what I created.

First off I used a Paisley Embossing Folder (I found this at Joann’s) and placed the front half of the card in the folder and ran through the Diecut Machine. Next I inked over the raised edges with an assortment of chalk inks.

There was a sheet of floral cardstock that I fussy cut several of the flowers and foliage out. I also dug into my stash of cardstock scraps and adhered to the front of the card. I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the sentiment and placed onto the front along with the fussy cut images.

I finished by adding gems to the sentiment tag and the center of one of the flowers and adding lace, loops of thread and Stickles to the berries.

There you have it! Hopefully soon…I’ll get around to creating something else from this craft box.

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.

The Wandering Butterfly Boy

Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s already the middle of the month and this is my first post! I’ve had a lot of behind the scenes stuff going on…some good and some not so good stuff…ugh! But anyways, I created a tag using some of Eileen Hull’s new and not so new thinlits and embossing folder. Also this month theme on Eileen’s blog is Birds, Nests and Eggs and even though my butterfly boy isn’t a bird (he has wings though and that kind of counts, right?) I wanted to share. So let’s get started!

I had a sheet of gel pressed cardstock leftover from the collab with Eileen Hull and Gel Press that I cut into a tag. You can find those posts HERE and HERE. I embossed the tag with the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder, lightly inked over the raised areas with a Dark Blue Chalk Ink, added two of the “stamp” dies from the Snail Mail Thinlit, along with a strip of patterned cardstock and a circle punch which I folded around the side of the tag.

Next I rolled up and distressed two pieces of patterned cardstock and “roughing up” the edges and inked. I adhered both to the top edge of the stamp die and added loops of thread and inked up cheese cloth. I used the flowers and vine from the Shadow Box Elements, flowers and leaf sprig from the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits along with gems for the center of the flowers to decorate the “logs”. I applied an Adhesive Sheet to the back of a scrap of cardstock and cut out the word “Wonder” from the Journaling Words Thinlits (retired).

I printed (the head and body in two different sizes) and fussy cut out both along with the butterfly wings and frog. I found this printable on Etsy and it’s called The Steampunk Fairy Boys and is by itKuPiLLiimaginarium. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing onto the tag. I finished off by applying Stickles to the wings, cap and buttons on the boy’s jacket.

There you have it! If you haven’t been by Eileen’s blog lately you can find the latest from the Inspiration and Educator Teams HERE and HERE.

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.

Making a House a Home

Hi everyone! I’m back with the full reveal of my Eileen Hull project that I shared a sneak peek of at the beginning of the month. I used an empty ribbon spool as a jumping off point too create a little home decor piece.

The first thing I did was cut two circles in patterned cardstock from the Ornament Box Diecut and adhered to the top and bottom of the spool. I cut a strip of the same patterned cardstock and adhered around the center of the spool and added flatback pearls to the bottom lip of the inside circle. Next I cut out one wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and added adhesive in random spots to the back of the wreath. Side note… what I will be adding to the top will anchor down the wreath.

I cut out five of the largest trees from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut, cut the trunks off, folded all, adhere the backs of the trees together and lightly ink the edges of the tree.

I cut two houses from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, a small section/frame of the Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlit ( measure and cut at the house die roof line), fold and glue together. I backed the inside of both houses before adhering to the front and back of the “frame”. I also folded, cut and glued a strip of cardstock to create a roof.

I adhered both the tree and house to the top of the spool and proceeded to add an assortment of flowers, vines and leaves dies from the following diecuts: Wreath and Snowflakes and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits to the top of the spool.

I also added loops of thread and hand inked cheese cloth along with sequins, gems and flatback pearls to the flowers, leaves and vines.

I cut out the home sentiment and backed with a coordinating patterned cardstock, added Foam Pop Dots to the spool and placed the sentiment onto the front of the spool to finish.

If you haven’t been to Eileen Hull’s blog lately to see what her teams have been up to you can find the latest post HERE. Also on the 26th of April Eileen will have newest release of stamps with Makers Forte so be sure to come back to my blog for my latest project.
