I printed from the computer the lucky sentiment, cut it into the shape of a banner and glued it along with a shamrock I had received in a swap and some gold metallic thread to the corner of the tag. I finished off with an assortment of ribbon, Ric Rac, seam binding and bakers twine. There you have it! Easy Peasy tag! If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created from a 5″x7″ Kraft card and envelope for a friend who loves to journal. I turned the card base into a journal and the envelope into a cute little pocket which can be used as is or punch holes into the side and add to an album.
The 5″x7″ card I rounded the corners and from the fold of the card I measured 1/4″ two time on each side of the fold and then scored to create a flexible spine. Next I inked the edges and cut and adhered the following cardstock to the front: Epicurean: Pomodoro, Little Red Pages on Kraft and Navy and Ivory Mini Reverse Cardstock. To create the post card I cut from the following cardstocks: American Vintage: Wish You Were Here, American Vintage: American Stamps, American Vintage: Go and See Cardstock and Red and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse cardstock to pull it together.
I took two of the American Vintage 4″x6″ Printed File Folders and cut the tabs off (I punched and added my own tabs) then I cut ten sheets of grid paper for each folder and pamphlet stitched into each one with bakers twine.
Also you could decorate a larger envelope and add smaller cards with envelopes for a great gift too.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Hi everyone! I’m here to share a junk journal I created for a swap I am in over on Swap-bot. My swap partner LisaLaughs agreed to do a journal no smaller than 4″x6″ with three signatures and with each signature having 10 pieces of paper with an open theme. Since Lisa loves pink and anything vintage I tried to incorporate as much of both as I could.
The cover of the journal is created from a file folder and I used leftover printables, rubber stamping, receipts, paperbag, envelope, paint chips, cardstock and packaging.
I used Heidi Swapp rubber stamps all the way through the journal.
A lot of the printables I used are free from Ephemera’s Vintage Garden and the little girl on the cover is from the Land of Nod Studio. I love printing on textured cardstock because it gives the printables a look of being printed on canvas. 🙂
I also created a video to show what was inside and I hope you enjoy. 🙂
If you have any questions about this journal or anything I used in it please let me know.
Hi everyone! I am back as a guest designer this month for the Robin’s Nest. I want to share a quick project I created using a sheet of the Lips Glittered Cardstock which I printed this Tea cup and Saucer printable on to it. It is a very easy project to do. All you have to do is, of course, print and then cut the cup and saucer out and glue together. For more photos and how to please check out the Chattering Robin’s blog!
Hi everyone! It’s me and I’m here to share my last post with Dragons Lair Den. I am thankful for the time I have been on the design team and being able to share a little bit of my take on DLD printables.
I created this mini Santa journal from a file folder which I cutdown and the finished size is a 3 1/2″x5″ and that measures from the “creases” or three folds in the file folder.
I cut twenty sheets of notebook paper to fit the inside of the journal. Once folded in half I sewed the pages and tied off on the outside of the spine. I added fiber and ribbon also to make it more festive.
From the same Victorian Christmas Collection-Card Papers I printed off a burgundy sheet and cut it down to make an inside pocket. I added from the Vintage Santa Card Kit a label and flower to finish it off.
There you have it a simple little journal that can be used to jot down notes, keep up with receipts or whatever else you can think of. 🙂 Please be sure to check out the Dragons Lair Den for these printables and more. If you have any questions please let me know.
Hi there! I’m here to share a quick project with a Hello Dolly image I purchased on etsy. I printed it I believe at 40% and then fussy cut her out, adhering her head, arms and legs to her body.
I cut two cupcake liners a part and glued around the doll to create a skirt. I added baker’s twine, mini flat back pearls, a sequin and a dew drop. The plan is to attach these to some of my Christmas presents. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I am super excited to be sharing my first design project for the Dragons Lair Designs! This month’s featured product is from the Southern Comfort Collection. After pondering on what I could create with all these wonderful digital images this is what I came up with.
First I printed one of the Southern Comfort Paper onto a 5″x7″ sheet of cardstock. Then I ran the paper through my diecut machine to cut out the Rolodex card. If you don’t have a Rolodex diecut you can find a Rolodex punch at your local office supply store that can punch the notches in the bottom of the card. The Rolodex card is approximately 4 1/2″x2 1/2″.
Next I fussy cut individual images out from Southern Comfort Cluster Pack and Southern Comfort Elements digital packs which I inked edges and added Stickles to give some of the images a little glitter. Then I adhered to the top of the Rolodex and embellished with fun and whimsical crafty goodness.
The Southern Comfort Free Journal Card Sheet I fussy cut the woman with the violin out, applied pastel chalks to her dress, face and violin and glued one of the feathers to her back and then adhered her into the shoe. Both of these images where cut out from the Southern Comfort Cluster Pack. I also punched a crown from the leftover scraps that was printed and added pastel chalk to give it a little color. There you have it my whimsical little Shoe Fairy Rolodex card! I hope this has inspired you to create one for yourself. Please be sure to stop by the Dragons Lair Designs and check out the Southern Comfort Collection. There is just so much you can do with this collection!

Hi everyone! I created a card for my son’s girlfriend. Her birthday was yesterday and we won’t be getting together until later on but I just had to share. 🙂
She fosters dogs until she can find a forever home so I thought I would do something in a dog theme for her.
I cut a 6″x6″ piece of striped cardstock for the front of the card, cut a 5 1/2″x5 1/2″ piece of Gold and Pink Daisy Glitter Cardstock, inked the edges and then adhered to the base. Next I printed out the dog digi image and fussy cut it out, stamped the “enjoy” sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock and then I glued cut frames of cardstock for the sentiment and dog image, adhered each to the frame and then to the base. I finished off with punched flowers which I shaped, butterfly, ribbon, baker’s twine and dew drops.
Hi everyone! I’m super excited to share a tag that is in this month’s Scrapbook Generation’s Create magazine and it is on page 198!!! The magazine has me listed as Tonya Wilson ( a past alias) but it is me.
There is a great article about Sizzix and of course lots of layouts, cards and tags to get inspiration from but the best part of all the magazine is free!!! I’ve included a link to the magazine below so go and check it out.
Hi everyone! I’m here to share my project for Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart Challenge which this month’s theme is Summer Celebrations. Since the 4th of July is just around the corner this is what I came up with.
I had started with the Scoreboards Diecut 3D Food Jar with Spoon. I turned it upside down and tada it looked like a doll head to me. I cut the base out in mattboard and then covered with flesh colored felt. I cut a nose from pink cardstock, added white sequins, two black dew drops and I painted a white dot on each dew drop for the eyes and adhered to the face. I also added a tiny enamel heart, that I colored with a pink sharpie to make it darker, for the mouth. To finish off her face I gave her rosy cheeks using my chalk pastels.
I also used the Sizzix die Flowers, Daisies #2 to create the hair with. I used three of those 8″x10″ sheets of orange felt to do her hair…that was the most time consuming part of her. Since there is a small hole in the center of the flower I cut open the flower and adhered it around her head.
I cut out Annie’s body from mattboard with the Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Vase 3D and covered with a dark blue scrapbook paper. I adhered the head to the body and let dry.
I cut from red scrapbook paper Annie’s sleeves. I rolled up, glued one end and left the other open. I cut two small flesh colored circles for hands and adhered in the opening of the sleeve. Next I added lace, sequins, dew drops, button and baker’s twine to finish her off.
I plan on giving this little Annie to my mom since she has a collection of Raggedy Ann and Andy…she still has my Andy and my sister’s Anne from when we were little. 🙂
