Hi everyone! I wanted to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Case Diecut with a fun added “twist”!
After applying an Adhesive Sheets to both sided of a piece of Chipboard I added patterned cardstock to each side, placed the diecut on top and run through the Diecut Machine. As in the photo below you can see where I cut an extra set of “flaps”.
I adhered the “extra set” of flaps to the front of the case.
I also glued the bottom halves and the lid together.
I cut strips of patterned cardstock the same size as the outside and inside of the case and adhered to give it a cleaner look.
I cut cording and tied to the closure and added a button, sequin and gem to the center of the closure.
I added an assortment of flowers and leaves, handmade and store bought, to the top of the lid along with lace, cheese cloth, thread bows and pearl sprays.
There you have it! I absolutely LOVE this bookcase diecut and how versatile this diecut is!

Hi everyone! I’m back from Creativation and I had a tiring but fun time! I hope to do a blog post later about my adventures there in the next week or two…it is so hard to get back into the swing of things. Anyway, I want to share my project using Eileen Hull’s newest Display Stand Diecut.
I started by placing Adhesive Sheets on both sides of the Matboard and adding patterned cardstock over the adhesive (this makes it so much easier) before placing the diecut on top and running through the Diecut Machine.
I tried to put the stand together according to the directions but I bent the diecut the wrong way to begin with…can we say up oh…the bottom front of the diecut once I put it together right was buckled up pretty bad. BUT!!! I was able to cover up my mistake with hot pink gems which in my opinion dressed it up. I cut a piece of cardstock about an inch wide and the length of the stand and adhered each end to the stand. I created a belly band which I then placed the back sheet of the memo pad through the band. This is an easy way to replace the pad of paper once it is used up.
Next I cut a piece of elastic to fit around an ink pen and adhered each end to each side of a binder clip.
I also added buttons, glossy dots and loops of green thread to the center of each flower.
I placed an ink pen into the binder clip holder before clipping to the side of the display stand. This diecut has so many possibilities! As always if you have questions about this project please let me know. To see the rest of Eileen’s Inspiration Teams projects you can find the posts HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick project that I created using the Tea Cup Diecut. If you haven’t guess I love tea cups even though I don’t like tea let alone coffee but I sure do enjoy adding flowers and quirky little printables to them. Actually I had cut out this tea cup last year and had pull it together and then put a side because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to decorate it. Do you ever do that? Raise your hand if you have several unfinished projects laying around. 🙋🙋🙋
Well, enough about that! Lets talk about how I decorated this tea cup. 😉 I added pink velvet ric rac to the base of the tea cup and sequins and Dew Drops around the rim.
Next I adhered wadding up tissue paper to the inside of the cup. Next I fussy cut the coffee girl and you can find that printable HERE and glued her to the tissue paper and then added the moss. I added paper flowers from my stash, some Leaf Diecuts leftover from another project, lace and tulle to finish off my project. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I have worked on and off for over a year. It has been a labor of love and sometimes hate…lol….especially when it wouldn’t go together like it was supposed to.
I found this pattern on Silhouette but I changed it from an angel to a doll. The name of the pattern is Liberty Angel 3D Figure Part 1 Torso Arm Dress and Liberty Angel 3D Figure Part 2 Legs Wings Apron…I have no way of linking the patterns to my blog…sorry 😞 I do how ever have the tutorial from Needles ‘n’ Knowledge blog which did help in putting together my little dolly.
She is approximately 18 inches high once put together. Most of the paper collection that is used on the dress and pantaloons are from Anna Griffin Garden Party Stack.
The arms and legs are jointed with beads and ribbon. That was one of the reasons that is took me forever was at first I had the wrong size of beads and after searching I finally found a couple of strands at Michaels on clearance.
I also added an assortment of lace to the dress which I think really “fancified” her up. 😀
Instead of using twine and twirling onto a dowel and spraying with Starch to create curls I decided to use yarn to create her hair. I cut the yarn in three different lengths and started on the back of her head and worked my way to side of the doll’s face. The bangs I butted against the longer hair and once finished I trimmed up and added a lace bow to the top of her head.
Instead of using the banner that was included with this project I decided to use the Banners and Pennants diecuts. After cutting out and putting together I added sequins and a gem to each of the banners.
I added a little “blush” to her cheeks and a gem to her collar and wa-laa she is finally finished! I hope you enjoyed this project and if you have any questions please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! Last month was a sparse month as for as projects and blogging went I started the next phase of remodeling of the laundry room/den and kitchen. My parents have been coming over four days out of the week each week which I am very thankful for…it has been slow going but without them it would definitely be a snails pace as far as what has been accomplished so far. Ceiling have been scraped of popcorn and painted up to where the den ends and the kitchen begins as well as walls primed and today we start painting the walls with an actually color…YEAH!!!
Well, enough about remodeling and on with this little teacup I created. I started with Teacup diecut and cut it from Anna Griffin’s Garden Party Stack and assembled according to the directions.
I adhered a wade of tissue paper inside of the teacup. I purchased the Jane image from Art Tea Life by One Crab Apple on Etsy. I printed and fussy cut her out and adhered to the tissue paper inside of the cup. I cut a strip of dark green tulle and tied off every two inches…it beats trying to sewing it…and then I started bunching it up inside the teacup and gluing to the tissue paper as I went.
I used the leaves out of the Secret Garden and the Hydrangea (no longer available) diecuts. I cut those out and shaped. I used my Martha Stewart punch for the little leaf sprigs which I shaped also. I added flowers from my stash along with pearl sprays, sequins, Dew Drops, trim around the base and I bunched up a paper doily to finish off Miss Jane and her cup of tea.
Also I would like to submit this little teacup for:
I have a couple more of these teacups cut out waiting to be put together and decorated…yes, I have a thing for teacups…and will be sharing these with you when I get the chance. 🙂
