Mini Autumn Breezes Journal

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share this mini journal I created for my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team project. I had actually started this project this past summer but had laid it aside. I wanted to make a mini pocket journal with the “sleeve” from the Stacking Drawer Diecut. I had seen something similar on instagram and thought the “sleeve” diecut to the drawer was the perfect option. 
Before cutting the “sleeve” out I applied an Adhesive Sheet to both sides of a piece of Chip Board and added patterned cardstock before run through the Diecut Machine.
Fast forward to now, the patterned cardstock isn’t all that “Autumn like” so I added patterned cardstock from Auburn Lane Collection over the other cardstock on both sides. 

I cut about and inch off one end of the sleeves, measured, marked and punched holes so I could add the Closure Handles (I purchased these at Hobby Lobby).
Next I cut an assortment of patterned cardstock and vellum for the inside pages. That was a total of eight pages per signature with there being three signatures in the journal. 

Here is the list of assorted diecuts I used of Eileen’s for the inside pages: Bookmark, Tag and Pocket, Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Floral Arch and Words and the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags (retired) Diecuts. The little pocket diecut I sewed into the center of each signature and then glued close to create the pocket.
Before stitching the pages into the journal I cut a piece of cardstock 1 3/8″x2″ and punched holes about 1/4″ a part, sewed the pages onto the cardstock and adhered to the inside spine.  
Some of the diecuts I folded cardstock in half and slightly moved into the diecut before running through the diecut machine to create a larger diecut page.
I also cut tags and flowers for the inside pockets. I added a brad to the center of each flower.
The outside of the album I added an assortment of diecuts from Eileen along with store bought diecuts. I created these two frozen Charlotte dolls from a mold and paper clay and I also use the little house diecut from the Christmas House Ornament Diecut
I added thread, sequins and gems as filler to complete the front of the journal.
Be sure to check Eileen Hull’s blog for the latest projects from the rest of the Inspiration Team!  You can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Autumn Foliage Planner Clip

Hi everyone! I am back with a planner clip I created for Momenta! With Autumn only a couple of days away I decided I wanted to create a planner clip in a Fall theme for my planner.

I started with one of the binder clips from the The Explorer Journal Binder Clips.
I placed a piece of 5/8″ stretch elastic around an ink pen and the edges of the binder clip before cutting. Since ink pens are different sizes I didn’t include the measurement. You do want the elastic to be a little snuggle so your ink pen won’t fall out of the clip.
I adhered each side of the elastic to either side of the clip.
I cut two piece of cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad slightly larger…height wise and adhered the bottom of each piece to either side of the clip. I cut on either side of the elastic the cardstock and folded the middle piece under.
I adhered the “tabs” of the leftover cardstock that was cut over the backside of each side of the clip.
I cut a couple of leaves from crinoline fabric using the Leaves, Acorn and Wood Grain Cut and Emboss Templates. Also if you didn’t know Momenta has a new Diecut Machine too. 😊
I watercolored the leaves with an assortment of orange, yellow and brown inks.

I adhered a piece of ric rac and gems to one side of the clip. I added one leaf to the corner of the clip, a couple of sequins, thread and cording to the center of the leaf.
I clipped the planner clip to one of my notebooks and then added an ink pen. 
It’s a perfect and stylish way to keep my ink pen handy.

Thankful Gift Box

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away?!?! Where has the time went to??? I thought I would share a little gift box I created for ClearSnap.

I carefully took a part and emboss each section of the box with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder. Next, I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Candies Yam, Red Barn and Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub in random spots to give a wood grain texture on the box. Once I got the desired wood grain effect that I wanted I put the box back together.

I inked a glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Inks and add water to each color. I loaded a paint brush with Flagstone Ink mix and splatter each side of the box. Clean brush and load Coconut Ink mix and splatter each side. I fussy cut a doily from the DIY Shop Paper Collection and adhere to the top of the box.

I cut from the Crinoline fabric flowers using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and lightly ink the center of each flower with Canary Ink.

I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Next I laid each flower diecut on top of each other and pinched the center of all the flowers and shape.

I inked the feather stamp from the Thankful Stamp Set with Wicked Back Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I did this twice and fussy cut each feather.
Next, I inked and stamped in Leather Ink the “Thankful” sentiment and two leaf sprigs. I also inked the edges of the sentiment with Butter Chalk Ink and fussy cut the leaf sprigs out and inked another leaf sprig with Clear Top Boss Embossing Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder, set with a heat tool and fussy cut image out.

I glued the feathers, leaf sprigs and several loops of cording and thread to the upper corner of the box. I added the “Thankful” sentiment to the lid and finish off with flowers and sequins. 

I would like to also submit this project for the following challenge:

Fall Tea Cup

Hi everyone and Happy November! I want to share an Autumn themed tea cup I created for ClearSnap! 

I started by printing out a Tea Cup Printable from Layers of Color which is found on Pinterest. I printed on burnt orange cardstock and fussy cut tea cup and saucer images out and adhered all pieces together, including a paper doily that I added to the sauce before adhering to the cup. I also glued a small wadded piece of tissue paper to the bottom of the tea cup.

I cut Millinery Leaves Diecuts from white cardstock and inked the glass tray with the following ColorBox Blends Inks: Melon, Frog, Golden, Sunshine and Nutmeg. I added water to each ink and applied the ink mixture randomly to each leaf diecut.

While the leaves were still a little damp I shaped with my hand and let dry.

I adhered lace around the top of the tea cup and added dry moss inside the cup.

Once the leaves where dry I shaped and inked the edges of each leaf with Top Boss Embossing Powder Stamp Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder to each of leaf diecut and set with a heat tool. I completed the same steps for each Golden Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders as I did the Copper Embossing Powder.

I adhered the leaves inside tea cup along with mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. I finished by placing tulle and cording as a filler between mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. Now are you ready to create one for yourself? 😀 As always if you have any question please let me know.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

ClearSnap: Woodsy Autumn Planner

Hi everyone! I’m back with another project this week that I created using the Wrapped Journal Diecut and an assortment of inks from ClearSnap.

I started by cutting one Wrapped Journal Diecut from Mat Board and emboss both flaps with Woodgrain Embossing Folder.

I inked my glass tray with Nutmeg Blends Ink ,add water and painted the outside of the journal and both inside spines with watered down ink and let dry. Next I loaded several Art Daubers with the following inks: Mercantile: Candied Yam and Red Barn, Cornucopia: Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub over the outside/inside in random spots on the journal to emulate woodgrain texture on the cover. I inked the glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Blends Inks,added water to each color and loaded a paint brush with watered down Flagstone ink and splatter on the outside cover and inside spine and let dry. I completed the same steps as with the Flagstone ink with the Coconut ink and let dry.

I cut and adhere patterned cardstock to the inside of journal and strung elastic cording to the inside of the spine and tie off.

I cut from watercolor paper a set of leaves from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and took one small leaf diecut and ink with Coral and Dandelion Premium Dye inks and shape. Once dry I inked with the Clear Embossing Pad and add Copper Embossing Powder to the clear embossing and set with the heat tool. I completed this step again for each of the following embossing powders:  Gold Sparkle and Opalescent

I cut three pieces of cardstock in various sizes to create a flap for the front smaller cover and adhered. I punched a small hole in the center and at the end of the flap and add decorative brad. I cut two more pieces of cardstock to cover the back of the brad on the inside cover. 

I cut out one small wreath diecut, one circle punch and one seal circle punch and adhered to the cover. I adhered a doll head to the corner of the wreath, loop hemp cording, embossed leaf and two mini flowers next to the doll head and added mini gems to the flowers.

I cut 28 inches of hemp cording and fold in half and tied securely around brad.

I wrapped cording around journal and tie a knot about an inch under the brad, add three beads and tie off. Cut off excess cording. As always I welcome comments or questions about this project.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:

ClearSnap: Autumn Hoop Wreath

Hi everyone and happy first day of October! I want to share an Autumn Hoop that I created for ClearSnap. I started by spritzing Log Cabin Smooch Spritz into a plastic bowl and adding a small amount of water to create a stain. I saturated a fabric scrap and wipe down the wooden hoop until the desired color was achieved. I put the hoop a side and let dry.

I cut from white cardstock nine leaves from the Millinery Leaves Diecuts. I inked up a glass tray with the following inks: Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Nutmeg, Sunshine, Golden, Frog and Melon and ColorBox Premium Dye Coral Ink and added water to  the inks. I placed the leaves in the inks mixture until all were covered. Once dry I placed each leaf in the Textured Impressions embossing folder and run through the diecut machine. Next I lightly ink the veins of each of the leaves with the ColorBox Petal Point Fluid Soft Pastel Chalk Ink Pad. 

I inked the glass tray with Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Nutmeg Ink and add water and loaded a paint brush with watered down ink and splatter each leaf. Once dry I shaped with a stylus and my hand.

I cut from white cardstock several Sizzix/Eileen Hull: Heart and Soul Flowers Diecuts and inked a glass tray with Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Sunshine and Golden Inks, added water and laid each flower in the ink, remove and let dry.
Next I shaped the flowers with stylus and adhered together. I layered buttons and a sequin in the center of each flower and adhered. I glued the larger of the two flowers to the top center of the wooden hoop.



I added a layered mix of the other smaller flower, leaves, twigs and Fall Berry Sprays around the top of the hoop. I finished by adhering several loops of cording to the arrangement.

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

Eileen Hull: Mushroom Wrapped Journal

Hi everyone! I back today with my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team project! The challenge for this month was to create a project in a Halloween/Autumn theme. It has been hard to get excited about Fall since the temperatures have been in the upper 80’s to lower 90’s so I decided to use the new DCWV Okey Dokey Paper Pad and go with a black and white leaves, flowers and mushroom theme…you could say kinda Autumn themed. 😁

First I cut the Wrapped Journal Diecut from Mat Board and inked the inside and outside spines with ColorBox Blends Ebony Ink. Once it was dry I splattered ColorBox Blends Coconut and Flagstone onto the outside and inside spines.

I cut the inside cover with one of the black and white speckled cardstock from the Okey Dokey Paper Pad and adhered inside.
From the same paper pad I picked out the black and white line drawings of leaves, flowers and mushroom and cut and adhered to the outside cover. From the internet I found a vintage black and white drawing of a mushroom. I printed and fussy cut the mushroom out. I adhered a piece of patterned cardstock to the smaller cover and the mushroom. On the larger cover I applied a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of patterned cardstock. I placed the “Journal” Diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts and  ran through the diecut machine. I peeled the backing off of the adhesive and added the “Journal” diecut to the cover. I poked a small hole in the center of the spine and ran white elastic cording through the hole and tied off to create a closure. I also strung black elastic cording in the spine to hold journaling notebooks.

I cut the stitching out of a mini notebook. You can find these in packs of three at the Dollar Tree. 

I got four booklets with six pages each from the one mini notebook.
From the Okey Dokey Paper Pad I cut covers for each of the notebooks and then stitched all pages and covers together. I also added my initial  and “Journal” diecut to the cover of two of the notebooks.
I also cut dash boards to cover some of the notebooks and some will hold sticky notes.

I plan on adding more to the journal and will share once I finish those projects. 😀 Also be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see the latest projects the Inspiration Team has created. You can find those post HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Autumn is in the Air Candle Holder

Hi everyone! I’m back and I wanted to share a quick Fall home decor project I created for ClearSnap. 

You can use any size jar for this project. First I adhered Jute Cording around the jar three times.

Underneath the jute I applied Antique Mod Podge with a sponge brush and add Sprinkle! Chunky Glitter onto the Mod Podge area of the jar. Shake off excess and let dry.

Apply mini gems around the top of the jute cording.

Cut two medium flowers and three small flowers from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. Lightly ink two art daubers with Red Barn and Carney Inks and apply to the center of each flower. 

Once dry add a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Lay each flower on top of each other and pinch the center of all the flowers and shape.

I cut one Leaf out of Watercolor Paper from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecut. Ink art dauber with Carney Ink and apply over the leaf diecut and shape leaf.

Apply Top Boss Embossing pad to the edges of the leaf. Sprinkle Copper Embossing Powder over the embossed area of the leaf and set embossing powder with heat tool. 

I completed the same steps as above with each of the following embossing powders: Gold Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders.

Loop two hemp cordings and tie off along with a couple of messy loops of yellow and peach thread. Adhere to the back of the flower along with the leaf and glue to jar. 

Add lace and pearl sprays behind the flower and to finish off all you need is a battery operated candle.

This project would be prefect for an Autumn wedding too. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:
